Tamla Motown Modern Pack - Why So Expensive?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone advise what's pushing up the price of this pack, currently £221 for 10 late 70s/early 80s Tamla Motown UK releases:

 

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Batch-of-10-7-inch-Singles-Tamla-Motown-Records-TMG-Series-/190803854036?pt=UK_Records&hash=item2c6ccbc2d4

 

Obviously I'm missing something, because If I had seen any of the records in a charity shop, I wouldn't have bought them! 

 

Thanks in advance.

i heard there were only 50 syreeta ever made making it probably the rarest ever uk motown ,

so for people who collect uk motown singles it's a must have isn't it.

it only takes two people with a few bob to spot this and the price will take off,

Joe.

 

ps. i sold mine for £180 a few years back

i bought it in a box of 100+ all mint- motown it had syreeta and the  bobby womack / so many sides of you p/s ( sold that for £100 )

AMONG OTHERS AND THE NUMBER 1000=TMG / KIM WESTON / MARVELETTES which i'm keeping.

never thought much of the syreeta apart from it's rareness,

Well Joe you did well - even Manship only got £177 when he auctioned it. Mine cost £75 from an SS member.

 

It seems to be creeping up in price.  Sales on Popsike:  £84 (2009), £123 (2011), £194 (2012).
