EXCITERS - BLOWING UP MY MIND Mr Manships auction!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I had to look twice at the price of this record on John Manships auction!

 

It's a fabulous Northern Soul classic on DJ, but £479?

 

I have never seen it anywhere near that price.  The auction has not finished yet, could go more!

Yep was surprised myself.However its not easy these days to find the original 9723 Demos.Even the later 1035 reissue fetches a tidy sum

Were the reissues 1035, only on the orange label issue though? No yellow demo?

All the demos I have seen are yellow label, 9723 first issues.

I never saw the stock copy of 9723 until the nineties. Mid seventies there were loads of orange 1035, and quite a few yellow 9723 demos, but never an orange 9723

 

It may be different now, but back then it was probably the rarest.

 

Cheers
Mick

I pulled out a mint orange issue in a shop in San Fran in 1999....i would be interested to know why it was reissued in the U.S.A. Was it a local hit?

I assumed it was reissued for us in UK - a couple of years later RCA did the range of UK biggies (Paul Anka / Roy Hamilton / Laura Greene / Michael & Raymond / Dean Courtney etc. etc.)

Think it was for UK Northern Soul demand in the early 70's.  Lorraine Chandler, Roy Hamilton etc were repressed on orange USA, RCA issues as well.

The Exciters went for 572 pounds !

 

Totally crazy price on what should be a cheap 45

Some people will pay over the top prices, one of the reasons I've sold loads over the past year and why I don't bother buying much northern any more.

Crazy price.....I sold one about a year ago, had it up for £100 (which I thought was the going rate), couldn't sell it.......got £80 in the end.  I have seen them on lists for up to £150, but that's got to be top wack.

Why not invest in half a dozen underplayed  tunes if you've got the dosh, with respect there's plenty of scope

to add to the  collection out there.

A UK Maxi single copy is good enough for me these days, which was still technically, a first UK  issue anyway.

Not that I've got that kind of auction money sadly.
