Wanted : The Checkmates - Kissin Her And Crying For You

Recommended Posts

Issue copy available on ebay and GEMM for £200

KTF

Cheers for the reply, I know about that one, not a realistic price IMHO,  last one on here went for £80 and it was a M- although it had a bit of water damage.

 

 

 

 

 

Books normally at  around £100 so i reckon that's the tops im going to pay. Silly inflated prices make me wonder sometimes what its all about?! Many thanks again for getting in touch and helping with the search!

mellorful : £20 when was that?! Got to be a long time ago at that price!!

 

I've got great memories of this tune, think i first heard it in 1979/1980....?

 

So if anyone out there is willing to part with a copy you'd make one man here very happy!!

He said he got a carver for £20, not an original. It's a hard plastic dub plate - the modern day equivalent of the acetates (emidiscs etc) that people used to have cut in the 70s and 80s. The material used is inferior to the nitrocellulose lacquer coating on an acetate and that's why I questioned the statement that it was 'a perfect copy' - although I acknowledge that hearing (and standards of what's acceptable) vary from individual to individual.

Copies of this went for much less back in the early 80s, totally agree on the underplayed and brilliant! Mint Copies seem to maybe running dry but
