Knock Your Socks Off

Recommended Posts

After picking up a copy of June Conquest 'Almost Persuaded' on Fame for a tenner I thought it would be interesting to start the following topic:

What cheap 45 purchased recently blew your socks off?

I can't believe how good my recent find is and for the sum of only 10 English pounds!

£10 English pounds will also get you a copy of Barbara Green "Young boy" on Vivid. Top drawer female mid-tempo, very reminisent of of the other Barbara, Ms Lewis. Got one last week, well worth a tenner IMVHO wink.gif

A Guy spin at Stafford, covered as Laura Green. I paid about £30 at the time, and I wasnt even earning that per week then.

Great record.

I've mentioned this one on another thread, but it fits nicely into this.

Johnny Nash - You Never Know - MGM

I picked this up for just over a tenner, couldn't believe it. When I first heard this I thought it must be dear as hell. It certainly sounds it, big production mid-tempo dancer.

If this had have been on a different label who knows......

June Conquest is excellent.. my favourite recent cheapie would have to be Fontella Bass - Lucky In Love.. also about a tenner. Closely followed by Carl Carlton - I Can Feel It which I got for £4.99.

Just got ( yesterday at the Toronto record show ) mint copy of Robert John - Raindrops - A&M for $1 canadian, also

Freddie Houston - Chills and Fever - Regency and 2 45's on the Holiday Inn label from the same dealer for $1 each.

Can anyone give any info on the Holiday Inn label, both 45's are decent soul but not Northern.

Total purchases were 68 45's at an average of $2.50 canadian each!!! Acouple bought blind were filed under B for Bin but lots of nice stuff.

The Independents Arise & Shine, released on the mottled design Wand label in 1974.

It's been around a long time & is a seriously underplayed record that can easilly be purchased for under a tenner.

Oh, and I got an LP that I left behind loads of times before and thought I ought to finally get myself a copy after hearing a track at A New Chapter at Smersh, London earlier this month. Al Wilson - La La La La La La La La La La La La La Peace Song for a fiver too.

I recently picked up Is it possible by Chuck Overton (kapp) for a fiver. Well worth 10 times that amount musically if you ask me.

Talking of June Conquest, check out her Gem "All I need" on Windy C, perfect mid-tempo with June showing she has the voice of an angel!

Probably the record that has knocked me for 6 most in the last 12 months is Patti drew "Stop and listen" on Capitol. This is one perfect Northern dancer, I`ve had a few copies and knocked them out at £30 but always get loads of calls for it.

I`ve been asked to write an article for one of the magazines highlighting cheap but good records and I`ve been giving it lots of thought lately......

Chris.

PS, How about both Startells records on Lamar?

Chills & Fever brilliant but on Old Town - Whats the Regency label or am I just being dim ?

Oh how good that just is...but 20 is not only not a really a bargain, I think it is also a bit over the top. Anyway, as I said, great track whistling.gif

Fabulous Dimensions - I Can't Take It. I ain't really a mainline 6ts fan but I can't understand how this doesn't get played. Maybe it's just not 'rare (?)' enough? People, keep selling 'em and I'll keep buying 'em!
