Aussie Release Thread

notice the Aussie Sandy Wynns - The Touch of Penis, John Manship has up in his auction, in the wrong sleeve... If I was paying £131 and counting I'd want that to be correct, thats an Aussie sleeve but was not used post 1963...

 

So if your reading this, it should be a Red stripped sleeve, yep 'Looks gorgeous' as it says in the blurb, but its not as it looked when it was issued...

 

small matter, but makes a difference... :huh:

very impressive, and something Aussie collectors will want to see, obviously I collect Aussie with a passion, and sleeves are a big factor for me, they have be right.... I'd bid but I got mine a decade ago for $30 aud... how prices go up.

Valid point Mal. There's too much of this 'comes with company sleeve' sales blurb going on...

not really Frankie, but I know where you are coming from, but there are a few of like minded record collectors who like the original sleeve too as it adds to the history of the record,  I just managed an upgrade to mint minus aussie verve clara ward and in its sleeve too.. but try an find a tony drake in a sleeve. on the subject of sleeves, picture sleeves are hard such as the Jackie day, so much so that some people are resulting to scanning them and using these until they get an original as I have seen. if memory serves john sold one of these in his dropdown a couple of years ago. but you cant be fooled as they are easily distinguishable due to the quality. what would you reckon was the hardest aussie mal.  I have a theres that beat that lists them you can have it for 20 pence plus postage

He's got all the guides has Mal, he knows more about Oz 45's than anyone I know.  

He hasn't got that weird New Zealand copy of Fife Piper that I've got though, on the old early 60's purple Pye label.  :lol:

Did you pick the Clara ward up recently? there was one for sale but the bidding was very silly for it....  rare ones, Only ever seen seen one copy of Donald Jenkins on W&S, Frank in Melbourne has that, and the scans on Dave Flynn's Web site

 

But the rarest 'Northern' Aussie might well be Nolan Porter on Pink Probe, a friend Craig in Sydney found 3 copies well over a fifteen years ago at a Big TV channel sale I think, big sell of, of some sort in Adelaide, there are some on here that were there that day, so they might put the location and date correct, my memory isnt what it was.... anyhow he kept two and sold one to Frank in Melbourne, George in Sydney is said to have a copy also.

 

Tony Drake is very rare, and some of the Garland Green 45's on MCA, 'Jealous kinda Fella' being the most common, then the LP, then I'm told there are two other releases,  I'd have to check my records for the titles, but very likely all culled from the LP...

 

Finally the RCA stable always are very hard, 'Lights Out' by the Dynamics came up on eBay years back, never heard of another, pic cover as well... always found the RCA stuff hard to get hold of... oh and festival White Demo's, which do turn up, but you never see them for the good titles, Ive got about ten or so good ones in varying conditions..

 

any more out there, what do folks think..>?

I Know he deals with a guy in Sydney Pete who has a shop there at the back of Central, Surrey Hills area,  very near to where I used to work,  same chap who was the source of the Jamaican Sam Dees / Fragile handle with care 45's that swamped the world some years back.... I met him once, thought he was an arrogant sod, so I asked if they were boots, which seemed to piss him off no end... safe to say we didn't like each other...

 

And I know that George and Frank sold shed loads of Aussie 45's into the UK throughout the 8ts/9ts and beyond... makes sense that John Manship was likely a recipient of a whole lot of those... there are various hordes of 45's Ive heard of that came out of allot of strange locations, one guy I visited in Victoria I spent a very hot and sweaty day with in blistering heat, surprised they didn't all bend in my hands, it was a nightmare,  went through thousands upon thousands of 45's, really narked of Liza, and found one garland green track, and then he tells me he had been cleaned out of soul stuff years before... God Damn!! Why didnt you say Dude!!    and that was the story at allot of places throughout NSW,  and other States we traveled trough.. Tamworth was good in NSW, its the country and western music Capitol in Oz, found loads of stuff in 2nd had stores on the fringes of the place, nothing in the center what so ever.. and I actually found some records in a junk shop in a place called Casino, which is on the inside of the Great Dividing range, farming town so how they got there I dont know....

 

Be honest, Parramatta record Fair nr Sydney was one the best places for me..Miss Goldie took me there initially in 2004, I went pretty regularly there after.. I said no to loads of things there, Shorty Long on TM, Don't mess with the Wkd,,  bloody fool...

 

I'm happy to learn, and if your selling, I'm always interested, but at the right price... :g:

Now that this thread moved all the way from London's 100 Club to down under, one question: How many soul 45's were issued in Australia in the 1960's?

loads Benji, I have W&G and Festival Listings (61-69) and Ive highlighted the releases of interest for my reference, but Ive never counted them up.. It seems to me that the stuff between 61-69 is very well documented, but the 7ts and 8ts seem less so, and Ive come across allot of good releases from those decades, but again Ive never counted them up..

 

Dunnno, how long is a piece of string? :huh:

 

£GRAD for the 100 club singles.. Phuttwwwttt... easier to get off your arse and go up there once a year isn't it...thats allot of money.. sorry Dave I'm fueling the Aussie debate I know, but its more interesting quite simply..

To someone interested in records this is infinitely more interesting than the 100 Club Singles thread, we've all seen these but there's still loads of Aussie 45's which are way off the radar.  And as Pikeys Dog says on that thread, who cares what they go for?

OK, to widen the appeal of the thread, here's some nice Aussie Motown for you, I only collect demo's, ones with no bullet sticker showing, sticker would be on the other side..

I am actually probably thinking of The Superiors mate.

Que Sera Sera is the same group.

another one the hardest has to be seven day fool or another that I wont say because its the other side of a tune they play on country programs and I want it first. frank is the top man on aussie stuff and a great guy too. I thought the clara went cheap at 300. ive only seen 3 and ive got 2 of them. things like brian  hyland and also a lot of cover versions like nick knack paddy wack are  around too.

is 'seven day fool' on chess or Coronet?  Know what you mean on cover versions, there are hundreds, Pete Smith said he had a CD of loads of them, be good to see the track listing on that, personally I gave up collecting them because the quality got so bad, thought Little Pattie - Messin up a good thing was good, I did pick that up recently, and saw an Aussie Don Charles - The Drifter go on evil bay week or so ago, ok version but nothing tops Ray does it...

 

so whats this 'Other'? you cant allude to something without giving us more of a clue? so its the flip of a country 45, what group of labels does it come from?

Not forgetting Ozzie released LP's ie Casablanca Sampler that included Gloria Scott's "Case of too much love making" (as well as the ultra rare Oz 7")

Also the Van McCoy SSS International " Van McCoy & Friends".

Clyde McPhatter "Welcome Home" (MCA ?)

I also have the Metros "Since I found my baby"  on Oz RCA Promo that references the LP "Sweetest One" so maybe that exists to?

I have the Casablanca LP, still after the 7", seem to remember somebody talking about Clyde McPhatter LP ages ago, Ive never seen one, But the allot of Aussie LP's are quite surprising, allot have the Aussie vinyl with the USA sleeve just with a large sticker the size of the cover on the back, simply to state "Blah blah records, Australia'...

Craig picked the Nolan Porter's up in Canberra the 2nd year they did a fair selling off all non Australian artists from the National archives. There was multiples of loads of great stuff.
