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

The Revilot issue may be a tenner or so, but it's a million dollars.  A wonderful piece of SOUL, rare or otherwise 

 

  Good luck to whoever has the spare pennies to acquire this monumental find.

The fact that the whole world knows about this record already really does make me wonder why someone would volunteer to give away 20% of the price to someone to sell for them when they could get exactly the same price selling on here or Facebook and not pay any commission to anyone.  And don't anyone say well thats the way to get the top price, this record will sell itself.   Crazy...

No don't think he was, I thought you though I was being sarcastic hence question mark.

Does make me laugh a bit though because it was confirmed by myself and several other people that it was real (without the benefit of actually being able to touch it), the detail I reported was printed in the Guardian and Record Collector and all over the internet, but it's not actually conclusive proof until John Manship says it is, the rest of us collectors are just not to up to it  :lol:

Quote from DENBO:

 

"I'm convinced Richard, even before seeing the videos. The reason why? Because I know TWO people that I'd trust with my lifetime's collection, who are not on these social media sites and who simply don't go to venues anymore, anywhere. These two guys have had two separate, totally unrelated copies in their hands. For me, that's good enough, and I'm normally very suspicious of things until I've seen them for myself."

 

Did anyone ever get to the bottom of the "other two copies"?

In my opinion this will go for at least 30k

:hatsoff2:  :hatsoff2:  :hatsoff2:

On any other site i would agree with you, but on John's i think that 40K might be closer.

A record that is of interest to not only soul record collectors but general rare record collectors, and collectors of rare things.....super interesting on final value in the auction, Id say 20k at least

I'm also not convinced it will go to a soul collector either, there are some fanatical UK London collectors out there.

if you want the full story behind this auction then check these three threads out

 

june - the initial posting by a member 

includes pics, and later videos

note the date 5 months ago

 

june -a  thread detailing UK mainstream press article 

 

sept - another thread 

have to  smile  re-reading this seeing the member who is the most vocal questioning both the validity and the seller of the 45

 

 

surprised that there's no mention of any of these threads on manships ott description

 

as its been said many time provenance is a key factor in such things

 

but there you go  :rofl:

It's because us little people don't count Mike, Soul Source does all the work - again - and someone else gets the credit.   Anyway who cares, let 'em get on with it and good luck with the sale.

Thing is, what will the new owner do with it, stash it in a swiss vault, have it put next to Mona Lisa in the Louvre or simply "stick it in his box"?

Just thinking about this, obviously the stock is the rarest version by a million miles but I reckon both Stateside demos, the red and white and the green and white, are rarer than the London yellow demo.   I've had two red and whites and one green and white in what, 30 years, I could have had a dozen London demos.

Not quite as well prepared but personally I think it`s much bigger and much more important to the scene in general than Frank Wilson, as we all new the 2 copies on SOUL existed in the 1st place.

Whether we like it or not, 2014 has turned out to be quite a year for Northern Soul. The timing of this auction will definitely bring it to an interesting climax.

I've had a mis-spelt (as is this) Red and White Stateside demo for 40 years or so and only seen one other - mind you I don't get out much so there will be quite a few more around - wouldn't have minded this London issue though but as always it's "what's in the groove that counts" and I think that a lot of folk lose sight of that - incidentally with reference to #33 I think Dennis' two people were just mistaken and had demos not knowing the difference

If he says it's true, I believe him - but let's face it, nobody makes a run of 1 copy, it's entirely feasible that a couple of copies slipped out before, because we don't know everyone who collects records.  It'd be interesting if the remaining stock were ever found though.
