Sold mine a couple of years ago to someone who really wanted it for £500.00 - No regrets! (It went to a caring home)

.........But don't listen to me - I'm the worst 'record dealer' in the world (Buy high / sell low) :D

Sorry to go 'off topic' here (Maybe should have started a separate thread)......But is there anyone 'out there' that genuinely cares whether their records go to someone who really wanted said record (a good home) / or couldn't care less, as long as it's sold?

Maybe this is the difference between record dealers, and collectors selling to each other - Call me soppy, but I care / take satisfaction if one of my records goes to someone that has been longing for the record in question.

you are probably right Rob

thank you chalky.....the four voices, near as damn it 2k on jm's, another fantastic double sider.....I fancy this would go close to that price on his auction (just as good imo), and think most people selling privately, soul do's etc would want a grand minimum cash. I'm no expert and listen to you guys who know far more than me........Rob

Nice one mate - I don't sell much, but a couple of years ago I had to 'needs must' an' all that - My children needed feeding (and that is the truth of it) I ended up selling (as stated) The Servicemen, but with that, a hand full of records I have had on the shelf for years, literally collecting dust - 'Howard Guyton - I Watched You Slowly Slip Away' was one that springs to mind.....It's funny, I hadn't played any of them for years, but now that they are gone, it really hurts (only comfort being that they went to good homes)...Some records to people like us are like photos - You may not look at them much - but by god, they would be the first thing to grab if we had a house fire (along with the kids of course)...Oh yeh, and the wife!!! :D

Len :thumbsup:

It was a mate of mine that sold that - It's one of those record that I had on my wants list for so long, I ended up not wanting it! How weird is that?.....The 'Mystery' is something that should be cherished, sometimes finally getting a record spoils it in some way :wink:

it's hard to put a price on records these days especially indemanders like this one.  We can says a price based on past history, what copies we know are abput etc but all rhyme and reason and common sense seems to have gone out of the window these days.

People always ask me "How much is so and so worth", simply because I sit behind a box of records at niters. At one time I used to have a fairly good idea of prices so would happily tell them what I thought. Nowadays, I'm really hesitant to give my opinion because if I say £200, and they sell it for that,  and then John Manship auctions one the following week and gets £600, who is going to get it in the neck for giving bad advice ? Yep, me ! Yet the advice I gave might well have been perfectly accurate THAT week !

Very true Dave ...at the moment ,it's becoming very eratic with the mid to high end rarities .

frequently seeing things go for a lot more than they should be .Some might be freak ebay madness ,but it seems to set the standard for future sales .

But this is a highly prized 45 and not common and nm ,so need to get price somewhere near ?

Appreciate the input so far :)

would you get max £ from auctioning it through mr manship, he takes 20% but the skys the limit as Jack Montgomery shown in the last week or so......take offers on here for a week or so, you can decide then if it's reached its potential giving updates on offers  so far etc. Or stick it set sale with very nearest offer.....worlds your oyster!.......I offer 2 specimen bonsai trees!.....good luck matey, a fantastic record........kind regards......Rob

p.s I hope I've got this right and you are selling, not looking to buy.
