Original Records For £40 And Under

Recommended Posts

If people are willing to fork out £40 and more for bootlegs nowadays, see the Soul Brothers Inc - Pyramid - Goldeneye bootleg thread, what could they actually buy for the same money on original label that is nearly as good or even as good as the SBI record

I'll start the ball rolling with a couple of the top of my head all records that i play out, admittedly in a crossover/modern set and obviously not everytime but non the less superb records

Ollie Nightingale - I don't know why i love you - Memphis (£20-30)

Bobby Moore - (Call me your) Anything man (Hot line/scepter) (£10)

Deniece Chandler & Lee Sain - Hey baby - Toddlin Town (£15-20)

Viola Wills - Have i got news for you - Supreme (£20)

Jimmy Beaumont & The Skyliners - Our day is here - Drive (£25)

Cory - Take it or leave it - Phantom (£40)

Emotions - Stealing Love - Volt (£15)

Hot Sauce - Bring it home, give it to me - Volt (£15)

Naturals - Colour him father/Crystal Blue persuasion - Shout - (£15-20)

Anthony White - Hey Baby - PIR (£25 WDJ £40 issue)

OK there's ten straight of the top of me shed, admittedly no real out and out northern there but i would have to think a little harder about that.

So come on then what else is there................

JoT

BTW I pesonally would rather have anyone of those records than a boot of any other.

Doesn't really count SBI as northern in sound.. a few other under-40£-records: (mixed styles)

Winfield Parker "i wanna be with you" (P&L)

Chuck Corby "complete opposites" (Can't rem. if its Chess, Checker or Cadet)

Joyce Bennet "the new boy" (Jaguar)

John Edwards "vanishing love" (Aware)

Tyrone Edwards "can't get enough" (Invictus)

++++plenty more..

best

Leo

PS. i understand you want the SBI tho' ...superfantasticalicious!

Really Trouty..... Do you have to waste valuable soul source space by starting a topic that no one gives a shit about?

How I wonder...  :lol:

:o

I just thought it may be interesting to some people who haven't got pots of cash to spend on records what they can actually buy on ORIGINAL VINYL in most cases reasonably easily for less than £40. A worthwhile exercise IMVFHO Billy

I was only kidding. I ain't got pots o' coah either, so I'll join in!

What about the Tyrone Davis stuff, you can get 'em all for under £20, and the ones I know are quite good...

Mellow Fellows - My baby needs me - Dot - OK... I know this is a bit more than £30, but you can pick a minter up for £50/60.

Voicebox - I want it back (your love) - A fave of mine, and only a twenty-five-quidder!

Nina Simone - Be's that way sometimes - RCA - Easy pickup for £20, demos bit rearer though, maybe about £35

Don Gardner - Somebody's gonna get hurt/Ain't gonna let you put me down - Tru-Glo-Town - A mere £30 touch (if that!), and two fantastic sides! The first's a big beater (that sounds shit rare if I may add), and the other's an up-temp R&B stomper dancer thingy

Don Gardner - There's nothing I want to do unless it's with you - TNT - Another big beater that I was lucky enough to pick up for $10 (evilbay), £20 off manship. Unfortunately with this one the B-side's shite - bit like Cavaliers on Shrine with lots of screaming and shouting in background.

Paul Sindab - Since I Met You/I'm Up Tight - Hype - A-side's very slow and sensual, a perfect ender, while flip is an up-temp dancer. Got mine from manship's carboot for £15 I think (warped), would be £30 mint, and while we're (I'm) on the subject of Paul Sindab, if you see 'Can't wait no longer' on Kasika listed for less than £100 - buy it - it's AWESOME! Appears on eBay now and again, make about $150. Trust me. Buy it even if you don't know it. It's good. Very very good. Nuff said on the matter...next;

Maurice Long - I don't love you anymore - A whole bunch of WOW's for £20, what more can you ask for?! wink.gif

Harold melvin - Prayin' - Source - Can pick it up anywhere for about £15, although I was lucky enough to get the 7mins 30secs long 12" cut, which is a lot rarer (and better cos it's longer), which is worth about £100. One of the best 70s/80s dancers ever IMO.

And I'm sure there are many many more...just can't be arsed to list them all wink.gif

But it's true what you said about the Eddie Billups (Ask My Heart) thing, quality seems to speak (or sing) for it's self, the high price/rarity just makes it more desirable.

How about while we're here (and I'm not trying to steal your limelight Trouty), also listing the records that cost a fortune but are utterly dreadful... I'll start (most of mine can be heard on Manship's Rarest Of the rare):

Primers - How does it grab you - Hale

Can't think of any more just yet. Will add some later after trawling ROTR wink.gif:Plaugh.gifwink.gif:lol:

The thing is at least with the cheaper end originals you do stand a chance of making a bit on your investment, not that it's about the money at all but if you spend your money on boots.......well, at the end of the day it's your money to spend as you see fit, don't let anyone tell you any different, but i was just trying to help you make an informed choice.

John

BTW I may have a spare of the Naturals at home not 100% sure may have sold it a couple of months ago will have to check. If not you regularly see it on lists, the Naturals is a great double sider and my fave version but you can also pick up the other versions cheap as well.

And another thing...

I know this topic is 'cheapies' available for under £40, but what about when you find a rarity that you know is a rarity, but cost you f**k all...

For example, I recently (on my hols cool.gif ) picked up a copy of Matt Brown on Jar-Val for £1.50 wink.gif from a car-boot sale. I also saw a copy of The Under Ground Express on UGE (gee I wonder what that stands for :lol: ) for $6, although this had gone when I enquired...unsurprisingly.

Oh yes, this is my kind of topic.

Not all of us are lottery winners or big end earners, so,unless we sell the missus ,are never gonna get near the real rare stuff .Anyway most are around on one cd or another so if you must have em better to get 20 or so on't cd then pay £10-15 for a pressing IMO.

Yes it is very difficult to get a decent collection these days, which is why threads like this help us to Keep The Faith(PAT. Pending) by spreading the word on good tunes that still can be found on original label, that should also be played out on Quality grounds,rather than price tags.

Keep up the good work.

Cheers

Tony

Why not, only really hear it at Northern venues.

IN SOUND Chalky, it's of course a "northern" record since it was played and discovered by northern djs/collectors e.tc. i just meant it's not very punchy, fast e.tc. ...and i think it's great it's not stereotype northern, then i can have it in my top5 northern, xover, modern, 70s AND atmospheric category :lol:wink.gif

Billy

Since my last post and although its getting off the subject I can't let the world think your a boot legger or a bootleg collector

Billy is a rare original collector with a fine selection of rare choones and has a good ear for a classic.

The reason he's called "THE BOOT" is because he has a fetish for women in in thigh length leather boots, whips masks you name it etc etc

What , WHATs up now, Have I said something I shounldnt???????
