Bettye Swann - When The Game Is Played On You

Recommended Posts

Eddy I sold two copies of the Jamaican issue last month both for well in excess of the opening £175 bid price - So IMHO no difference on the price at the moment as it's one of those ' must have 45's ' at this present time....

thanks for that mate , I have 2 copies of the Jamaican issue , but I have been asked to swap one for the us issue , the us issue has writing on the time side , the jamaican issue is nr mint , I just needed to know if it was a fair swap  , thinking the Jamaican issue was  better nick but cheaper  , is it worth doing what you did and put them up auction ? or set sale , thanks Eddy

The Jamaican one turns up more than the USA copy so I rate USA a little more.. Anglo American have USA copy up for auction.. Be interestin to see what that goes for... We have a scan of both USA and Jamaican together. But am away from home so can't post up til I get home

The fact is,it's indemand for dj purpose and not collecting,so the value is set by supply and demand and not which one is rarer.

As long as it's legit and plays well,people will pay the same price for either copy.

Be about £50 next yr lol

I think my US demo's vinyl and my US issue's styrene.  Are these Jamaican issues vinyl or styrene?

Jamaican are always vinyl, never styrene. I've never seen a styrene of 'WTGIPOY' ! You have that ?

I think the US issue is a pretty rare record and seems to be outstripped in terms of supply by the Jamaican one quite significantly.

 

Nev's point about it currently being a DJ record rather than a collectors' one is spot on–that's why there's no apparent gap in value between the two releases. Really there should be as the American is maybe as much as ten times rarer.

 

As for John's point about a styrene issue–it wouldn't surprise me as Atlantic often used several plants for each 45–but I haven't seen one.

Always a hard record to find - I needed it to complete my Atlantic 45's on Bettye -I eventually prised Mike Charlton's copy out of him - he played it at Soul Essence well over 10 years ago.  I swapped it for a Jap copy of the Smoke album.  I eventually got a second copy which I let Mike have back in another trade - Iguess we were valuing it around the £40 mark....
