Frances Nero Keep On Lovin' Me

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help with information and a valuation for this?

The version that I own, I can not find listed on the normal price sites, it is not any of the three versions listed on a well known site.

Mine in appearance is exactly the same as the standard issue pink-purple "Soul" label, the number is the same as the standard issue S-35020 , however the B side is not Fight Fire With Fire. The other side on mine plays Keep On Lovin' Me, and the label is exactly the same as the other side.

On the run out stamped in type is T4KM-1792-1, also in written style is ALI-175314. This is the same on both sides except one side as an X with a line on top.

Thanks

From Mark GF

I've got an Earl Van Dyke 6x6 that is exactly the same, can't find it listed anywhere, it's like a white/same side both sides demo but on the regular issue label.

I think what you have is a mislabeled promo- I've seen other Motown 45's that are on red vinyl ( which was used for promo copies) with regular issue labels. Here's a red vinyl Jimmy Ruffin that has "What Becomes..." on both sides -

Thank you to the Yank, Kegsy and Roundhead for the information and great pictures. 

Quite a number of demos were made of the Frances Nero record and these are of far less value than the standard issue. Based on the information that this is very likely to be a demo with standard issue labels, is the version I have less value than the standard issue, or is it rarer still and of more value? 

I know recently a standard issue sold for £300, possibly a fluke? There is currently another for sale at £190 + £8 pp. 

Just trying to get an idea of value, as it’s a record I do not play very often.
