Recommended Posts

I came a across a 45 the other day that I bought on the strength of the dealers recomendation, "one day this will be a monster" "Get this now whilst its cheap"

etc etc.

I wondered if anyone else has bought blind and the record dissapeared without trace?

Oh, the record I bought Jackie Edwards "I must go back" on UK Horse, from John Manship, it was twenty five years ago and it was only £1.25 but I've yet to hear it played out never mind a monster. A fool and his money.....

Depends who tells you it's going to be a monster!! If it's a dealer like in your case i wouldn't. On the other hand if it was a top dj i would. After all it them who have the link with the dancers. Like any sales job they are there to make money :lol: STU

Blake, I remember that list but I would say it was more like 30 years ago. I immediately bought a copy :thumbsup: it's funny that people would remember something as unlikely as an old record list but that one had Shane Martin's "One On One" as a future monster as well, and I've never even heard it to this day.

thing is, if it's a future monster it still could be. at least, that would be my defence ranting_1.gif

Maybe this is a veiled euphemism which really means "play this at your next venue and watch the crowd run away, screaming in fright"?

'so right for today' - Won't be any good tomorrow, or the day after........

'fine for djing' - Play this battered piece of crap at a top venue and the promoter will fine you £200 for breaking his stylus.

'seen elsewhere for £x' ...two months ago, and they still haven't sold it!

etc etc

So right for today/waiting for the right DJ to get behind it/This will be a monster = come on you gullable tight cnuts buy this piece of crap of me, befor i bin it

things like Clara Hardy, and all the rest that have turned up, this is a cracker :lol:

Original stamped, not a reissue = Usually listed about 3 times what its been going on Ebay for, hence telling every one they are all boots.....

So where did this one come from whistling.gif
