Celeste Hardie - Reversed Labels

Recommended Posts

Hi!

Got a copy of Celeste Hardie - You're Gone from the bay about a month ago.

It has reversed labels, are any other out there?

The seller didn't mention it in the auction, but I'll keep it as it's a great record in my opinion. But if I would think about selling it, is there a formula how much money I have to take away from the normal "booking" price?

Or could it even be that it's bootleged?

Your opinions please.

thanks, Martin W.

Don't think there are any bootlegs of this. I personally wouldn't care if a record had reversed labels at all if I were buying.

Thanks for your opinion Christian.

But to me it's somekind of, how should I say it, not perfect.

Would be nice to hear from a dealer, if he or she reduces the price when the labels are reversed.

But then again - on some releases all labels are reversed.

By the way - I've had 2 copies of Celest Hardie and both of them

had labels the right way.

So I should probably give a damn about it.

Or even better, it's probably rarer than the normal copies :P

Yes to both :lol:

I had a copy of Joey Delorenzo that had reversed labels, twas an original, but didn't get near the book price in Moonships.

Amusingly, the value is now £1.3k in the new guide!!!

You'll only get what someone is willing to pay at that time. Luck is an important ingredient in selling. If you get two people who want it, then bingo.

If it's not on anyones' wants list at that time, then no matter how good it is, you ain't gonna get the dollar you want for it.

Ive had the Celeste about 6 or 7 times now (i live in the Bay). So far ive only had one that had a reverse label. I didnt realize it at the time but the buyer let me know upon receiving it.

Cant help you in the area of a price reduction due to it but ill be interviewing the label owner and some of the musicians he worked with on the label next week. if anyone has any questions theyd like me to field for them youre welcome to post it here or you can be private and PM it to me.

Two cents: Regardless of the label switch its truly one of the best female 45s to come out of San Francisco.
