HI, HERE’S ANOTHER LIST OF NICE ORIGINALS, AS ALWAYS THESE HAVE BEEN PLAY GRADED, FOR THOSE WHO STILL CAN’T GET A HANDLE ON THIS — IF I SAY THAT THE RECORD LOOKS VERY GOOD BUT ACTUALLY PLAYS MINT — THEN IT DOES!  IT WILL BE PRICED ACCORDINGLY — NOT AS A MINT RECORD BUT AS SOMEWHERE INBETWEEN VG AND MINT.  A RECORD CAN LOOK LIKE IT CAME OUT OF A SKIP AND STILL PLAY SUPERBLY.  I SHOULD KNOW, MOST OF MY COLLECTION LOOKS LIKE THAT…WITH MOST OF THEM IT’S THE INTROS THAT HAVE A LITTLE NOISE
LABELS ARE CLEAN UNLESS STATED.  ONLY THE A SIDE (THE NORTHERN SIDE) IS GRADED
 
ALL ARE USA ORIGINALS

THE VOGUES — THAT’S THE TUNE — CO & CE W/DEMO M- 25
Unfashionable record maybe but a lovely white demo. X on label and radio station mark WBUX

With Always Something There To Remind me on other side

THE FANTAISIONS — UNNECESSARY TEARS — SATELLITE EX 25 SOLD
Cracking oldie
 
ZENA FOSTER — BABY LET ME TEACH YOU — VEEP DEMO EX 80
100mph stuff, midtempo tune on B side, that side clicks at start — otherwise would have been 100
 
NANCY AMES — I DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT — EPIC M- 30
Original plain yellow label, small wol on other side
 
THE FAWNS — NOTHING BUT LOVE CAN SAVE ME — CAPCITY EX 15

Must be pretty scarce on US original demo, I can’t remember having one — intro is crackly on both sides
 
THE INVITATIONS — WHAT’S WRONG WITH ME BABY — DYNOVOICE DEMO EX 100 SOLD
Play wise you’ll have a job finding a better one.  The label on What’s Wrong side is discoloured and is more pink than white, don’t ask me.  It has a little chip on the edge, hard to describe but it isn’t a chip out of the side where there’s a gap, more like a shaving on the top surface.  Tiny tiny thing.
