I'm selling all my records over the next 6 months apart from one box that holds about 60. Most of the ones I'm keeping are so cheap they are not really worth selling but out of the other ones the very last one to go would be Linda & The Pretenders "Believe Me"

I did indeed Andy and what a great article it was (and your CD sleeve notes)

And yes she was stunning and a voice like the proverbial songbird!

I love the fact that she has the phrase "Believe Me" (which isn't that very common in songs) in "She Went Away"

Kind ov a strange question,Kegs...what on earth made you think to this? By "collection",I presume from your selection,to be Northern Soul focused...? Are you goin' by sentimental reasons memories etc or by monetery thoughts? Selling a collection is a very distressing,depressing morose thought !!

That's the point, what is it that makes people hang to certain records, above others of equal musical quality ?.

That's a great question a bit like name your top three, what would be there one day could be gone the next, I've been giving it some thought since you first posted and still haven't come up with an answer. I do know it would be down to gut instinct as I held each record in my hand slowly  whittling the pile down , I can see in my minds eye piles of records in line gradually reducing, keep to the right, sell to the left. There's now tunes spinning in my head, Gladys Knight Just Walk in Shoes, memories of a magic night in Manchester early seventies, Look What You Done to My Heart rescued from the tip by my mates Dad who was a dustman, Moody Woman ,Little Misunderstanding, Brooks and Jerry being lifted out of a brown box in Ralphs Records aghhhh..... I've gotta stop thinking about it

Sentimental reasons in the end,because if you have decided to sell up then for whatever reasons -obviously holding back some based on rarity would be a no brainer.I am a no brainer type,sorry to say.

I love ALL my records.  There are a few thousand I could get rid of, and still survive.  But, if I were to start selling them off, If it ever got down to the last 1000 or so, it would already be so disastrous and anguishing that it wouldn't help to keep just that few.  I'd have a difficult time in deciding which 1000 to keep, and it wouldn't have been worth it to keep that few to play or even look at, if most of their label run issues are missing.  They all go well together in a collection.  They are all like "old friends"  I used to be able to remember where and when I got each one of many thousands.  I've lost some of that memory, already.  But it would rip my heart out to see them go, being sold off in installments, as I need money.  I hope I never NEED to sell them off to survive.  I might rather pull the plug on the old oxygen tank before that could happen.  Luckily, I'm and artist and writer, and not a longshoreman/stevedore or day labourer.  So, I can possibly continue to earn money drawing into my nineties or early 100s, as long as my eyesight holds out, and my hands are not too shaky (and then I can move to computer animation as long as I can even punch keyboard keys with my nose :lol:); and I can write stories, as long as I can think coherently, and what I write still reaches the emotions of the reader enough to bridge the generation gap (e.g. isn't based on outmoded ways of thinking, but spans all generations).

Hi Robb   to save you the agony of deciding on the last 1000 I'll pop round and take the whole lot in one go. I will of course expect you to cover my expenses for doing you this enormous service and relieving any associated anguish.

I cant imagine selling my collection (other than odd bits i dont much care for) so it would have to be because of severe financial situation. The decision making involved would be so stressful that having thought about i would do a LIFO method i.e. the most recent purchase would go first and work back until i was left with my first 'northern' record purchased sometime in the mid seventies, being a highly warped Frankie Valli your ready now (not even the original i was led to believe it was at the time) that i dont even like.

(& i've just realised that i have sorted of cheated as i would exclude my 'marvin gaye collection' which is going nowhere)

I understand what you are saying and feeling about your records.

I think now,the generation gap is already,long,long gone and so wide as today bearing no resemblance to our halçyon era of Northern Soul.Time changes our social behaviour.Back in the late 60's and 70's English life was different then,factories,poor youth,fashion,music,and "scenes".Northern Soul was underground,there was no choreography -it was spontaneous,driven by the music.Living for the weekend,the way we dressed for that magical weekend.Spending hard earned pittance of wages on records,travelling,and clothes.Working class youth and just ordinary,somehow just fitted perfectly in with the Northern Soul Scene.Impossible to repeat those conditions in future generations.Each generation is different,they can't feel,experience,what went before.We are not alike.

Can you say what is your reasoning behind choosing those 4 records in particular?

Probably just that they have been my number 1 faves at varying times, along with lots of others, that probably don't invoke the same memories. I might add Johnny Sayles to the list if forced.

You are right on -they don't evoke the same memories,different years -different places and atmospheres I guess...which VaVa's tunes would be the last you would sell?
