Ethics In Buying Records

Recommended Posts

When Paul B came along so Cathy B was not earning, and interest rates went up to 15%, and I went on a 3 day week at work, I sold my issue of Let My Heart and Soul Be Free/Whats the Use Of Me Trying by the Tangeers for a fiver, along with other classics such as a Saxie Russell Thomas demo etc. to one of the Burnley crew.

I was off the scene then and didn't know the values, but this mate knew and even tried to barter me down!!!

I know ethics doesn't come into it, but how many of you knowing my circumstances at that time, and being a fellow soulie, would have done that, or might some of you have kindly illuminated me on the true value?

I for one, whatever your circumstances, couldn't have done that, my conscience wouldn't let me.I would never have got any pleasure out of those records :thumbsup:

Sounds a little unsavoury, but probably something you need to take up with your 'Mate' on a personal level??

its easy to say now but, i would have done a bit of research on the current value at the time, if i came across this situation as a buyer, i would have to tell them what they had , getting a bargain and getting ripped off, two different things :rolleyes:

if you were a dealer or record shop or someone i did not know i would have no qualms in taking it off your hands :rolleyes: but if you were a mate i would tell you it was worth more than that and agree a fair price with you.

I did a post on this topic a few weeks ago. My local second hand shop gets bits of soul, funk and reggae in now and again. I try to establish the going rate for for anything he finds. I let him know and then he usually charges me about 40% of the current value.

He makes a profit and gets a value for the stuff I don't want, I get a bargain and first call on whatever he turns up. Everyone is happy :rolleyes:

Does it only apply if it's a mate or fellow soulie? On another thread i don't see anyone having any qualms about taking thousand dollar rare 45s off poor Americans for a few cents... :rolleyes:
