Darrell Banks - Open The Door To Your Heart/our Love


Recommended Posts

Really good article too. Much better reading it in an original newspaper as well. Don't mind the online take but prefer to get my hands on the hard copy. Can't see anyone in Hull stumping up for Frank Wilson and pretty sure John would not disclose any details of any winning bidder.

Can't remember when exactly but I do recall JM saying that a guy from Hull bought it for his girlfriend, I think it may have been part of the blurb on his site when selling another record ???

  That's enough evidence for me. Congratulations Nick. You've found the rarest British soul record of all time.

If 150 SS collectors all bought a ticket for £100, assuming the seller would take £15,000  right now, then the winning ticket drawn gets to keep the  record. Hands up how many of us would risk a ton t

Hi all, before I do my best to get some sleep I just wanted to say a massive thank you for your help, assistance, excitement and enthusiasm. Aside from the personal joy of having such a rare record it

She must have been a girl in a million for him to do that. Frankly, the notion is highly implausible as I can not think of any bloke that would stump up that sort of money for a record with writing on the label AND just give it away... I can see a girl in Hull being head over heels with a guy called Kenny and surprising him with a rare record paid for with money from a joint bank account. The mystery deepens...

You're right. As I wrote Durham it sounded wrong. :D

The last Imread about Frank Wilson bought from JM was it was bought by a guy in Australia for his girlfriend, but the record has since been sold on and is now in USA or Canada. 

 

lets hope DB buyer isn't quite as mysterious!

Well I was told it was bought by someone in Hull for his girlfriend who wasn't really into soul.  They then later split up?  Where it is now, dunno.

Well, this is a thing of rare beauty. I think so many of us have a big soft spot for this record because the Stateside issue was one of the first proper Northern records we bought; it was an age before it got deleted.  

 

I don't think you can put a price on a one-off like this, but I'd be amazed if it went for less than £20k.

 

Whats a great year it's been for Northern soul, one way and another.

If it was a one-off rare stamp just think how many millions this would fetch!   :yes:

Must admit I thought it would have gone for at least £10,000+ more then that?

If I had the money to buy either FW or Darrell,no contest Dazza all the way for me.

Cheers

Yes, but we still don't know what it would have gone for.

 

May well have been other potential buyers who couldn't place their bids. If so, I bet they (and perhaps the seller), are not too happy at the moment.

It was pobably all the people on topics like this viewing the auction and constantly refreshing their web page that caused any crash.

I doubt it Martyn.

 

The site has occasionally crashed before at the business end of auctions. It happened in my favour once, when I was in the lead on a record, and I still received the 'winning' e-mail as confirmation. I suspect that will have happened again, and will constitute a contract.

 

Although, having said that, internet sales confirmations are not always taken as 'contracts'. There have been several incidents - one in the last few days at Amazon - where incorrectly priced goods have not been enforceable. I guess we'll have to watch this space.

Given the interest this has generated I would imagine any serious bidders would have got their bids in rather than take a chance on the final seconds.

I would rather take a chance on a late bid than take a chance on being outbid, regardless of interest/price, I don't think i'm the only one with this train of thought either
