Tim Brown Auction

Recommended Posts

his auction doesnt show final prices,his auction works the same way as making offers on here,no one ever really knows or see's anything unless the seller decides to reveal.

a bit dated really compared to others.

Well I'm sure Tim will let people know if anyone wants to ask him……Always found him very straight to deal with personally.

Everybody has a go at John Manship's auction - but when you look at the other main auctions - Tim's and Pat's -  John's is a million light years ahead in terms of transparency, openness, user-friendliness etc.

 

Cheers

I don't think anyone has a go at JM's auction, it's the people that use it that cause wonderment.

Just think everyone should 1) adopt winning bid is an increment above the last highest bid approach (i.e. proxy bidding - not blind bidding) and also 2) be open and transparent about the final bid - so we all know the result and can see how we did.

 

Think that would actually encourage more, and higher, bids on some auctions - where perhaps the general lack of confidence isn't there among the punters just now.

 

Thank you and goodnight  :)

There has been plenty of copies about recently, it ought to be £50.

Reckon it soon will be £50 again once the novelty value has worn off Chalky.

Remember the Jamaican copy's of Sam Dees....

Although  "WHEN THE GAME IS PLAYED ON YOU" didn't chart how rare can it be? How many Atlantic issues have remained above 100 squid and what is the likelihood of a box of these 'turning up' .. Given the quality of the tune it should fetch at least as 'KISS MY LOVE GOODBYE" regardless..

The Jamaican Sam Dees have never seen the shores of the island at all , and I would suspect the Jamacian Betty Swanns as well

That's a really interesting statement?

 

Would be great if you could add a bit more flesh to the bones, as I've heard that before said about Sam Dees and now of course Bettye Swann? Can you give us some harder evidence or is it just your opinion?

 

Don't mean owt funny by this, just interested to know what you base your statement on?

 

Cheers

Interesting, I had 2 off a Japanese dealer who sells predominantly reggae 45's most

of which are Jamaican labels/copies. Its also says on the Bettye Swanns something about Dynamic sounds.

I have also bought Atlantic 45's Inc. Sam Dees in Jamaica when on holiday.

Sam Dees all came from an Aussie dealer in Sydney..  I looked at a box of 200 plus of them all originally sleeved when I visited his shop, he has been supplying John Manship for years I guess...think I paid $40 USD for mine in 2004/5...

Game is played on you was featured on one of the Sigma Sound cds that RS had some influence in I always thought it was an unreleased track as I never saw any copies for sale, with the amount and popularity of her Atlantic tracks its strange there was no album.

The Jamaican copies of bettye and sam have the same vinyl and label typeface as a load of other Jamaican stuff so they are good Imo... Just common.. The USA stock copies are infinately rarer
