Hey Kev, Johns not getting any stick really just the " soul fans " buying the records . Anyway I think he has some great records on the auctions . Which reminds me I once brought off him " MICKEY BUCKINS Silly girl " for £10 ................not in the auction and it was in 1983 still not bad though . Thank you John .

Love Carl.

Talking about this subject, a few years ago I found in Gemm  a stone mint copy of The Velvets Satins"Nothing Can Compare To You" bell sound stamped mint condition for 28 dollars. This is what I call a bargain!!

Me and Andy Spencer went to his King Street shop and both got Joe Matthews Kool Kat issues for 20 quid a piece

My impression is that John works very hard to get the records he has on the site and auctions.

The records he has for sale don't just fall into your lap these days.

I got a fairly rare LP at about 25% of normal rate last year, he congratulated me and called me a lucky bugger as far as I remember when I called to pay.

 

I am not alone, its the buyers with trigger finger that cause the prices not Mr M. Its getting quite ridiculous the paranoia on here about what lets be honest is one of the best business ideas for many a year.

They're not always records he turns up either, as collectors can offer up their wears to put into his auction (with a commission cut). So to be fair to John, the big prices and low prices are not always his hit/benefit to take.

not a massive bargain but.. i was after a copy of king floyd times have changed, most prices on here were 40 to 60, some demos though... out of interest sake i looked on manships site and there was a m- copy for 25 quid! was very surprised so snapped it up. although i did notice afterwards that hes selling the pulsar company sleeve.. wouldve been nice to have had that included but then again when you have as many sales and records as he has it doesnt surprise me at all that they werent put together.

I have seen one or two bargins on his auctions, he had Kenny Gamble The jokes on you  on his dropdown, you know the one where the price dose'nt drop :lol:  for £100 or maybe just over has it had a hl crack but played great someone got a bargin there. 3 or 4 years i won a Luther Ingram Hib w/d for £300 i thought that was a good deal.   Also the person who paid over 300 for i want my baby back on vent got a real bargin :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

Many years ago bought a Red/White dj copy of Mark Lloyd  - When I'm gonna find her from him for the princely sum of £4.99.

Wouldn't it be great to go back to the days when good records cost less than a months wages.

Think this post is meant to be about AUCTION bargains... The concept that you can bid the highest in the worldwide marketplace inhabited by super-rich lunatics and STILL get a bargain...

Let's face it, everyone's had a Manship set sale bargain and everyone's had a Manship set sale not-so-bargain. But nobody likes to talk about them, do they now?!!
