Nice one!!! Best I can remember is getting Rose Brooks - I'm moaning out of the Novelty section for $3, it was listed as the other side which is a bizarre version of They're Coming To Take Me Away. Same section I got Batman At The Go Go on a white demo for, can't remember but no more than $10. Then again, in those days there were only a handful of soulies on Ebay...those were the days

I got a lovely issue Bobby Garrett 'I Can't Get Away' for $17. Next thing it's on a chicken advert, so to the back of the box it goes.

I think Manship is still trying to knock them out at £100!!

Not that cheap, but 2 that stick in my mind were won within 2 mins. of each other from different sellers Eddie Bishop 'Call Me' and Vontastics 'I'll Never...'. Secured for under $100 the pair.

On the Eddie Bishop one, mine's got the old multi-colour ABC Paramount label. On the back of Manships new guide the copy has the plain black ABC logo. Is there a difference? different plants? different issues?

Definitely - I had a colour one like yours too, it was on vinyl, no doubt the one pictured is a styrene press from the west coast

Thanks Pete.

Was it commonplace for different plants to use different labels? I mean, the 2 ABC ones are nothing like each other. I know different colours were used (e.g Luther Ingram HIB), and maintained the same typeface or 'font', but didn't know totally different designs were used.

I won Johnny Moore on JARDEN on ebay way back, record turned up with additional copy with note from seller, saying he stuck the other one in as he thought the condition wasn't as described. True one side of the label was water damaged, but the vinyl was fine. Also got a mint white demo of Kelly Garrett on Smash for nothing in a job lot of Motown 45's I bought on ebay. Box arrived and in the middle a white Smash demo, me thinking that's not a Motown record but I've just made £200. :thumbsup:

On early days of ebay when there was only one record category got jimmy ellidge sad town on sound town for $28 Bonnie herman canadian issue $3.In a box of crap 45' there was a copy of Ralph Graham she just sits there whole box $16. I never won this lot but couple of weeks ago there was a box of 45s inc velvets on 2oth cent john bowie on merben argie and arketts on ronnie plus few others whole lot went for $47.

I bought a job lot of 100 records off this guy, he said they were all soul, they were absolute crap and he must have been laughing his head off, until I found the one good record in there - an original of the International GTO's! Still it works the other way too, the worst was buying 300 Columbia demos blind, when they came they were all either country or easy listening, I don't think I kept one single record, postage cost me about £200!

I don't know a price for it, so I don't know, if it is a real bargain.

But yesterday I got "Baby don't you weep" by Wilson Pickett on a german 45 with picture sleeve for 11 Euros, worth every Euro to me. :thumbsup:
