Esquires Dancing A Hole In The World Wdj Copy

Recommended Posts

I've had this for a few years and it is not listed in the JM price guide. Is it legit and what does Bunky's Pic mean?

I would appreciate any information.

Legitimate and available on a stock copy also. Not sure but Bunky may have been a Chicago radio station DJ who endorsed records for airplay. Good track, fairly easy to get hold of and an acceptable alternative to Jimmy Delph's version. Seems to sell for $40-80.

Yes the issue is listed but not the WDJ.

Ah! I see what you mean. I think the WDJs are also vinyl whereas the issues are vinyl and tend to play quite distorted.

Thanks for the update guys. Seen Bunky's Pick on lots of records.

I stand corrected but if it is not listed in Manships guide it is because John has never had a demo at his disposal

Manny doesn't list all demos in the price guide. Only demos that have a different valuation to stock copies are listed in addition to those for which no stock copy has been through his hands.

Is that a fact.... straight from the horses mouth (Johns?) I honestly thought he only ever listed titles he has had for sale, are there titles he has never had?

John would be the best man to vouch for this but that's my interpretation of the listing based on the blurb at the front of the guides. He doesn't list two entries per release when there are both demo and issue copies unless the values are markedly different: if the demo and stock copies were the same value, virtually every record listed would have two entries resulting in a considerably thicker book. I know the price guides are based on his sales database but again, only John can confirm that every record listed has actually passed through his business. Obviously, not all soul records known are in the price guide, but I suspect that he will have come across some titles that haven't yet been listed for a variety of reasons.

Maybe only the man himself can vouch. There must be thousands of titles he is unwise to... the very knowledgeable person he is

i spoke to john about this and usually demos are listed  only if theres a big difference in value ...and also some things are not listed because he hasnt had a copy since starting his computer database....around 1999... but some things he`s had prior to that
