Paula Parfitt Love is Wonderful

Recommended Posts

I've got one of these from when I were a lad but back then I didn't appreciate the original vs pressing thing.......it was just a record containing a song I'd heard and liked.  Consequently I have a box of records where in some cases I don't know whether what I have is original or not!

Sorry to hijack your thread, as it won't help you as i probably wouldn't sell anyway, but how do you definitively tell an original from a boot, and how much do each fetch anyway?

 

Cheers,

Mark R

Thanks Mark R

The original is a solid centre with anti slip milling around the edge and stamped. I think in this market it would be between £250 to £300 for one in excellent/near mint condition, Manship values it at £150 in his British Price Guide. I have a boot of it which I play at home , but would like an original to dj with. All the best..

isn't there a late 70s boot of this. Sure I had one but memory a funny thing. 

I have a boot on the Beacon label which doesn't have a solid centre-  I think it may have been a 7t's boot- it's definitely not an original- would love a proper one to play out.. thanks for your interest in the record.

Yes the boots sound fine and are quite rare in their own right- hope your copy is an original so that you can either gaze at it in amazement or sell it to help with Xmas !! lol..

Hi Matt,

The news is, as I suspected, my copy of PP is not going to make me a rich man! LOL  US jukebox centred 45 I'm afraid!

Happy hunting mate! :-)
