Court Davis how rare and how much ?

Recommended Posts

I paid good money years back but have never seen it for sale or auction since, so I beg the question to all out there, just how rare is this tune and what would be considered the going price.

cheers PK

seen it once in the last year on Ebay, but it does turn up, obviously it goes for big money every time...

Popspike can give you a history on Ebay at least  http://www.popsike.com/php/quicksearch.php?searchtext=Court+Davis&x=21&y=12

 

that was it, it was a very chipped one, I remember putting a bid in to see if i could stick it in a frame, as it was unplayable... that copy went for $255, although best win on there is the person who won it listed for the flip side "THE WORLD KEEPS SPINNING" at $688 in 2010... thats a good one me thinks..

JM auctioned mine maybe 5 years ago. Can't remember what it went for now. It's rare but does turn up periodically

​JM also auctioned my copy - must be 5-6 years ago now. Don't remember exact price but it sold for around £2.4k.

I agree with Phil.. Turns up only on occasion, indicating that it rarity is a main contributing factor to any seldom seen copies when it does actually come to market.

Covered by Richard Searling as 'The  lover who loves you not' as  I recall. The name Herbie Williams comes to mind but I'm not certain of that.

Would anyone agree it would be be an equal swap for a Cecil Washington ?

Not really. Court Davis rarely comes to market. You can pick up Cecil Washington more easily for £1,750. Better to own both rather than view it as an either/or decision.
