This is one of the latest additions to our Auctions page, which features unbelievable 45 rpm treasures from the Louise Neal Soul 45 collection: A gorgeous copy of the rare promo release for "You Don't Love Me/Where Were You" by Epitome of Sound, on Sandbag 101. The auction ended at midnight July 25 EST. Bidding opened at $350, and the winning bid was $400.

This amazing Northern Soul rarity occupies spot #7 in Kev Roberts' Top 500 List! NOTE: There are a lot of reissues and bootlegs of this rare release. Rest assured, this is a 1968 original pressing, straight from Louise Neal's collection, which has virtually nothing later than 1970.

Condition: M- (M-|M|M) After cleaning, this unplayed promo release reveals pristine Mint vinyl and audio. The only notable flaw is a tiny bit of wear on the white labels, which are Near Mint.

If you are interested in bidding, please visit the Louise Neal Preview Auctions page for an explanation of the auction process, or send an email to leland<at>classic45s.com.

Louise Neal was a black female disk jockey from North Carolina who had a 3-hour Soul/RnB/Blues show from the late 1950s through the mid-1960s. During that time, she collected thousands of (mostly) promo 45s at her home from the many record companies she was registered with for receiving promotional material--ABC, Atlantic/Atco, Chess/Checker/Cadet, Decca, Brunswick, Shout, Stax/Volt, Fame, Imperial, Jubilee,

Okeh, Sue, Philles, SureFine, Vee-Jay, Kent, Duke, Bell, Paula/Ronn, Rojac, Peacock, Motown (all labels), Veep, Capitol, Modern, Dial, Jamie and many others. A large number of these precious 45s accumulated unopened in their original shipping packages after Neal left the business in 1967. Most are highly collectable and extremely rare Northern Soul singles with book  [Louise Neal] values ranging well above $100... a few above $1,000! Many are pristine--unplayed and with a bare minimum of storage wear. Others may exhibit very light storage wear and/or an "x" marked on the label. A good many come in their original factory sleeve, some of which are rare and valuable on their own these days.

The collection also contains rarities and classics of interest to fans of RnB, Blues, Girl Groups, Doo Wop, and various other genres of Rock.

We began selling records from the Louise Neal collection last month, and it will take years for us to get through everything. To see what's for sale, what's already sold, and what's coming up, visit the Louise Neal Collection page on Classic 45s (http://www.classic45s.com/). We continue to add more details about the collection as time permits. This page shows all the Louise Neal 45s we've added to date (some have sold).
