I know it, but think I'll be breaking 'The Northern Soul Rules' if I name it - so shant! :wink: 

 

Len :thumbsup: 

 

P.s - I couldn't say if it's rare or not though.

It's the height of folly to buy something advertised as a cover-up if you don't know what it is.

Agreed. Let's hope nobody does.

I don't buy the argument that because someone lacks knowledge or common sense it's ok to exploit them. That despicable specimen has to be one of the most cynical and unethical record sellers around.

Come on Godz, get down off that fence.

Someone's having a laugh covering this up and asking that price.  Can be picked up for between £15 and £25 without searching around too much.

Personally I think you`ve got to be very brave, to cover things up nowadays, especially with the amount of info out there . Different years ago, no one had Shazzam :D . Seriously I would of thought unless it`s a very rare record, it`s probably known, and if it is a very rare record, why bother covering it up.

This is a fantastic record, if it was just played to you without the association with this dumb sale. But what mystifies me is that it is a Gospel classic and well known well beyond the realms of the soul scene, so why cover it up ? 

Funny enough when I played the sound clip I instantly thought I'm sure I've got this, only to find out that I played it on my radio show 2 weeks ago. At the time of playing it one of the everyday listener to the station in Gloucester and not a soul fan messaged me to tell me it was one of their favorite gospel songs.

 

So have to disagree with some, this is way better than average ........................

It was included in one of Ian Dewhirsts projects from three years ago - there was a lengthy discussion about it on here I even highlighted that particular track...

 

 

Mind I was very pleased to see my $5 investment grow to £500!!  

 

It is a very good record though - its's only fault is the harmonica - never liked it on Soul records :o)

How can something be an unknown cover-up when it's been freely available on CD for the last 3 years (as Mike Lofthouse just handily pointed out).

A copy spiked on ebay not so long ago around the $80 mark, and I thought that was steep. I like it.....nice little stepper. That said, it's a $20 record on a sizable label. A 500 quid price tag is insanity.

It sounded brilliant played on a big system in the back of a pub a few months ago, the first record I chose that night and had some interest....but like most things, not for big rooms or for dancers and certainly not for covering up or trying to sell for more than twenty quid.

Why is this being sold covered up at a ridiculous price? Its the Violinaires track as has been pointed out and its well known, sold two last year.

maybe but this whole dealer's shtick seems, inexplicably, to bite the hand that feeds it. this just makes the seller look both foolish and greedy. 

 

if people  fall prey then its their own fault really. but really will anyone? doubt it.

Anyone know what his Charlie Thomas c/u is?

Ummm, 'Unknown & unlisted, possibly only known copy'??? Somebody isn't doing very much research and blurting out false sales pitches.

 

Hear it here, track 19, from DCGS pt. 42.

I doubt it - its not 'that good' and it can't be that rare, even I have a copy! 

I've just had a flick through my records, are the 'Fantastic Violinaires' the same as the 'Violinaires' of "Groovin with Jesus' fame?

The trouble is you don't see these guys on the so called shop floor, they don't really have a clue what is happening as far as DJ's and current in demand spins is concerned apart from word of mouth and what someone who wishes to sell them something tells them.  You see it with the blurb/spin on many sales items.

But surely all these people have to do is Google the record they have, which they think is rare or might be worth covering up - so in this instance, this specific record comes up on Gregs playlists, on collector-frenzy as well as a few forums etc.

Most of the topics on any forum can be avoided with a quick google.  But some just hear that such and such is playing such and such and common sense seems to disappear out the window, along with prices.

 

Some just pray on the idleness of some just like insurance companies, hoping people won't go to go compare and just take their word  :wicked:

Well if anyone wants a copy I'll flog you one. I'll knock a nought off and call it £50, the only thing is you'll have to wait a few weeks coz I need to buy it from the states for $10 and wait for delivery.

 

Yes its that rare!!!!! :shhh:

True - But it was Gregs 'dublab' lab page which has it listed.

However, if I was speaking about mixcloud specifically, you again only have to type the record into mixcloud itself to see who else has it/played it.

And that result comes up amongst Amazon, last FM and ITunes, all of which produce results re this record, so you get my point :)

Looking at the Rafa club playlist recently, there were 3 or 4 in amongst the usual top sounds so there must be a good few still about. 

I'm sure the Lifeliner's have a fair few between them, but it is a funny one though, because someone somewhere will know it. Mr Fish, who has excellent records posted up a Fish C/U on Facebook last year and I sent him a PM straight away. So you have to be very confident in the record to do it. 

You can't fault people for trying though - keeps things exciting. I sold one last year, put it on FB, got good cash, no one seemed to know it, but Greg sent me a PM - knew it straight away and sold his as a result.

On the subject of cover-ups and with so much information and knowledge available these days, are there any current "cover-ups" that haven't been identified ?

 

Yes.  Some the odd one or two will know.
