Acetates And Test Pressings + Updated List

Recommended Posts

I have a bunch of test presses and acetates for sale, 19 to be exact. Artists like Arthur Conley, Ike & Tina Turner, Joe Tex, Eddie Floyd, Aretha Franklin, Ann Peebles, Hank Jacobs and Johnnie Taylor. See pics for details.  Conditions range from VG to EX, most are nice in the VG+/EX range and should play well.


Not sure how to price these and if there's any demand so will sell all of them in one lot. Taking bids starting with £40 and end bidding on Sunday evening. For bids and questions just PM me.


Below is my January 2015 list updated with sold items removed.

Northern/Crossover/Ballad 45’s


Dewey Jeffries - When no one cared - Gary-Dew / EX / £225 (1972 jazzy crossover dancer. Great and rare.)


Hank Jacobs and Don Malone — The world needs changin’ — Call Me / VG+ / £80 (Obscure and great 70’s soul with a message. Recently comped by Ace. Just shy of EX with a few light superficial marks, plays well.)

Soul Albums


Danny Dee - Movin' in - Harper / EX/EX / £250 (The super rare release of the Lil Albert album. Killer midtempo tracks in "Outrageous", "Who do the voodoo", "My girl Friday". And my fave, the stepper-ish "Movin' in". Super clean vinyl, sleeve in shrink. A far lesser condition copy sold on eBay a few days ago at $511.)


Superior Elevation - Get it don’t stop - Black Satin / S/S / £200 (Still sealed copy of this rare 1982 album. Including the mellow dancer “Don’t let go babe”, the two stepper “(It was) September” + a bunch of boogie/funk numbers.)

High Fashion - Feelin’ lucky - Capitol / EX/EX / £15 (Classic 80’s album filled with boogie dancers and the 2 stepper “I want to be your everything”.)




Jazz Albums


Johnny Griffin - Lady heavy bottom's waltz - Vogue / VG+/EX / £90 (1969 German original. Complete with company inner sleeve. Vinyl has some light marks but plays well.)


Jerome Richardson - Going to the movies - United Artist Jazz / EX/VG / £50 (Classic jazz dance in "No problem". Mono copy. Cover looks good but both parts of the upper and lower seams suffers from partial splits.)


Marva Josie - This is... - Thimble / EX/EX / £25 ("He does it better" - classic vocal jazz. Cover still in shrink but has cut corner.)
