Eddie Parker "i'm Gone" Jm Auction

Recommended Posts

I'd love to hear it every single time I went out. This record is in a class of its own and sounds as good as it did the first time I heard it. Just awesome!

I'm with Joan on this - love it and always will !

Rarity has got absolutely nothing to do with anything Nev, not as far as I'm concerned anyway.  Records weren't recorded rare, they weren't recorded expensive, they were all recorded equal so to speak - they only became rare and expensive later due to the amount pressed and the demand from us raving nutters. I can honestly say, hand on heart, that I would feel exactly the same about this record if it cost a tenner and we could all own a copy.

 

It is without doubt one of the finest examples of Detroit ever made and that's no matter how many times it gets played or how many people have a copy. Like I've said before - I just wish there were more so I could own one.  And Andy D.

Joan ,I'm in agreeance with you totally ...but it never ceases to amaze me when a rare item appears for sale ,how people make references as to how overplayed it is ,who's been hammering it for X amount of yrs ,etc etc .

My comment was a tongue in cheek dig at those who make such comments .

Some records you never tire hearing or dancing to ..i prefer to call those tunes " Timeless "

It takes something special to get into my "timeless " category and Eddie Parker is up there with the best !

Mel Britt ,Ann Sexton ,All Williams ,Sam Williams ,Towanda Barnes to name a few ..classics but pure quality !

Good luck to whoever wins it ,but fingers crossed for Andy :)

briliiant record hear but hear it out  nearly every week ...........

A truely awesome tune.

 I know exactly what you mean when tunes get over played; if I heard it played every 3 weeks or so that special tingle of excitement remains as you get on the dance floor. These days when I hear it, I don't always make the effort to get on the dance floor because I know I will hear it again the following week.  

If it was rested and varied with the Del larks, Cashmeres, Gwen Owens or Margaret Little for example then that special tingle of excitement would always present and even when jaded I still make the effort to get on the dance floor.

Could it be too much of a good thing?

Some records get over-kill, Joan may not agree but every now and then would be nice.

I have never heard it played by two dj's on the same line-up, wonder  if this has ever happened?

You know that magic 'whoosh' you feel from a crowd only very rarely during a night?

When you do you know it's a special record and that what's just happened is that the first few bars have just kicked anyone who 'gets it' right in their soul knackers (or girl bits).

Eddie does it every time :thumbup:

Funny how the backing sounds compared to The Hesitations That's What Love Is....like they put it through the murky machine and created an awesome atmospheric disc.

I thought it was a completely different recording?

It was only two years ago that he sold Jack Ashford's copy of it.

 

 

to save you all your time searching the whole thread....it made 8284 GBP. So bearing in mind the crazy Prices some classics fetch these daysI wonder what this copy will end at. My guess is10K.

Joan. Why do you want to own Andy D. Just thought I would ask.
