Prophets "suspicion" Valuation Help Please

Recommended Posts

The Advance pressings were, in my opinion, the worst ones for sound quality - they may have been the first boots of this, but they were way too fast by a mile.

 

Personally, I wouldn't give more than £5 for it, though some people who love Motown on helium gas may pay much more.

Same here, they're terrible, get the one on the Boot label or the Soul Beat one.

the one i had 20 odd years ago had a white label, decent quality and played the proper version. JM auctioned an original 10in acetate of it with all the correct info on it so i copied it on to my white label..wish i`d kept that now

Still got my copy but i've got an interested buyer.

Haven't played it for years but it still evokes great memories.

Bought mine one night at Droysledon.

Not so sure i agree with others comments about helium etc, but each to their own.

The 'helium' comment referred to the speed the bootleg was pressed at - not the track itself............ :thumbsup:

I remember those - they were pressed in 1990, and were the first pressings to be done at the correct speed, and in excellent quality.  I think there was a small batch of unissued Motown tracks pressed at the same time by the same person - just plain white labels, weren't they?  Done around the same time the Chris Clark version of "Do I Love You" was pressed.

The white label ones there was about 8 different discs done in total, Gladys Knight, Velvelettes etc, all unissued Motown.

thats right.....never bothered with tuthers tho

I can remember sorting the last of them into packs. I think there was three or four full sets and then ran out of Suspicion. £50 for a pack I think? That would be about ten years or so ago.
