Hi Chris

What's the difference between the black and blue? I have the blue.

I'm tempted to say "one is black, the others is blue"...........................as usual different pressing plants, times, etc they're both original.

Nice one mate.  I knew I'd left myself open to that as soon as I'd hit submit but thought what the hell!  Thanks for the info.

The light blue demo is a bit rarer than the blue issue.

Always thought it sounded great in Wigan Casino.   I think it got pressed on a light blue Verve around that time!

Strange there were 2 last week, they both went for less £30.00 each.

Yea eBay does your head in like that!  No consistency.  I guess it's down to the demand when the record is actually posted. I paid £25 for the blue one about 5 year ago off eBay.

Sure is and if 2 bidders want it logic's out the window the price rises faster than a souffle................

In 1980 I bought a new car from D C Cooks of Wath. needed to return it a week later to get a few niggles sorted.

As it was a bit of a drive from Worksop, I decided to just hang about till they were fixed (3 hr or so). So I decided to take a walk in the Mexboro direction. Passed a 2nd hand shop in a terraced row & he had put a few import 45's out front in a pavement rack. Some Verve / MGM imports were among them, so I dived in for a better look. Pulled out a 20 box of the Superiors (a mix of issues & demos). Some other 'obscurish' Verve / MGM items as well. Put 17 Superiors in the box + a copy of 4 other 45's ... (a Sam The Sham being one of the others) & went to ask the owner how much for the full box (now containing 21 singles).

Beat him down to £1 for the box. None of the others were decent rekkids but I made a bit from the Superiors 45's. However, I'm no business man & this was pre- Tinternet. So I got bored of having so many spares, so I swapped quite a few with guys selling stuff at local soul nights and ended up selling the last few to guys I knew for £1 or 30/- each. Should have held out and sold them more slowly.
