What a ridiculous statement. The seller is a well respected collector/dealer. 

 

I think the Mel Britt is over price now, but the Del Larks will go much higher. People with money seem to be investing in rare vinyl, more especially the big ticket Wigan classics. Could make £5k

im assuming that 'wigan bob' has said many insulting to the bone remarks over the four years he has been registered? i didnt realise you can be thrown off here for saying what you think,im a little concerned because this particular statement 'both look a bit dodgy' it is possible he doesnt know who the seller is,and both them records have been booted to look identical to the originals,especially the mel britt....just seems a bit harsh to throw him off,ive certainly seen the words 'looks a bit dodgy' many times on here regarding dubious looking records,and to be fair,it sometimes helps the less knowlageble!

 

i do hope this staement isnt gonna see me with an eviction notice...haha

Sorry I don't buy that Dobber, Teffler has posted scans and anyone that knows or has these records on original can see they are originals - Bell Sound stamp, narrow Columbia pressing plant ZTS numbers……and if you don't know how to tell an original from a fake, best not risk causing doubt on a record auction - say nothing.…..

best post it in the support/feedback forum

as said many times if you want to discuss moderation then thats the best place

 

all you are doing here by posting your concerns on the actual thread  is taking the thread even further off topic

 

post your concerns here and will answer

https://www.soul-source.co.uk/forum/41-support-forum/

 

 

cheers

mike

 

 

as per above will remove all the posts reference moderation later on

Dobber - John would not even contemplate selling bootlegged Northern Soul records. John is a top dealer and his livelihood and reputation depend upon flawless transactions. Members should think carefully before posting unfunny comments that could have damaging consequences. Maybe Wigan Bob should sharpen his wit on eBay and the dozens of bootleg sellers it ignores...

Although knowledgeable and respected John T is, it was him who said there's no money in soul records many moons ago, of course he's quickly recognised his mistake and supplies some of the finest 45s, the two mentioned above being prime examples of the quality he brings to the market.

 

Mel Britt I would not be surprised to see it over £2K and Del Larks over £6K imho to answer the question

 

Cheers Darren

It was Tefteller who did nothing but slag soul collectors off for many years, especially the Brits, and other collector of other genres.

Yes Chalky I was trying to be diplomatic but you put it very succinctly, that said I got great stuff from him in the 80s.

Yes he did.

But his product is superb.

I think most people know Wigan Bob wasn't being serious though.

It's the Yorkshire blood, straight to the point.  Don't doubt his product but he soon changed tack when he knew there was money to be made out of the Brits.

Del Larks could reach 7K and Mel Britt 2K. The condition of the Del Larks is perfect - has been rated a 5 grand record for years. Mel Britt always seems to fetch a four figure sum but records of this stature are in such short supply that even an Excellent copy could go beyond Price Guide levels.

Stunning record is The Del Larks.....  Worth every penny!

 

  On a side note, only just noticed that She'll come running back is the B side?

I never used to like the Del-larks much, thought it was too messy but after seeing them sing it live I quite like it now  :D

 Remember them at Prestatyn and trying to think what else they did to cover the 20 minute spot, the first 5 minutes of "job opening" was great then they stretched it out for the full spot, Can remember someone shouting "Sing the B-side fu f**k sake" " The B-Side's part 2" "F**k it then I'm off to the modern room"  can't listen to it now without smiling.

it wouldn't surprise me  if the price goes even dafter given the 3 people that for reasons better known to themselves keep bumping the price up with loads of time left , very strange

For such a supposedly rare record (even though its one of my all time top ten) there were three copies in Southampton, early eighties.

 

hi dave, there certainly was,all within a ten minute walk of each other,

Three bidders with zero feedback (in other words new accounts/no transactions so far) are amongst them bidder id's that have bidded this item up. strange.

One came out of Sinfonia in Blackpool for 9p around 74 I think.

 

It went to a Wigan DJ in exchange for Jimmy "Soul" Clark & a 7 inch record box !!

Good luck Stanley. The bidding for both records looks very open with a noticeable lack of Red Star bidders with four figure ratings. Maybe these guys are going to step in at the last moment, but at present, the records look like they're going to younger collectors.

Way to go Stan, the seek and destroy mentality works just as well for shoes on the High Street and top-shelf records...
