Is This Reggae's Frank Wilson?

Recommended Posts

Guess at least 2 bidders do Pete, auction mentality!

 

32 bids...I can't understand why though - 1968, produced by Boris Gardner, Bronco label ... notice bloke with 6 bids constantly bidding it up

Price is bonkers.  About 400 to 500 quid tops.

 

A Wailers tune "Diamond Baby" goes for over a grand when it shows up (it's on Coxsone) - this is probably one of the rarest JA tunes.

 

Another Wailers tune "Selassie Is The Chapel" on a blank goes for a couple of grand when it shows.

 

Nothing from JA has ever reached FW proportions though. Although the interest in JA music from people on the soul scene will no doubt send prices soaring over the next year or two.

There's a tune called Crucifixition which is apparently a version of Israelites which is supposedly a one off.  But this, and the one Tim mentions above, are sound system specials so shouldn't really qualify, at least Frank Wilson was pressed in quantity (and then disposed of)

A DJ I know called Uncle Fee has a copy of Crucifixition, I've seen it with my own eyes and heard it.  No idea how many got made, but he got it from a legendary sound system owner in London called Ken Gordon aka Fatman.
