News: Ebay High Flyers February 2019 - Soul Auction Results

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Ouch - someone REALLY wanted that Jimmy Bo Horne - remember seeing it for a tonne at Bradford 30 years ago when it was first getting played.

SURELY someone's taking the p*ss on Maurice Williams?

...And at that price it's tempting to let my Herbert Hunter go - but then again no.

If only I would have hung on with selling my records 35 years ago...

Ringleaders was a pound record. Hundreds turned up.

Gloria &  the Tiaras four quid straight off soul bowl.

Must be hundreds of serious collectors, if not thousands.

Long may it continue.

Larry Allen.  $1300.  I know it's harder than the L Allen but fcuk me. It's a £400 to £500 tune. Some crazy people paying crazy prices 

Does anyone know of  anyone that's personally  bought at these prices or are they closet buyers

The Well’s Gone Dry. Higher And Higher. What Condition Is My Condition In? Same thoughts as for previous results. Folk buying as though these copies will be the last to come up for sale. If you have the money, then splurge it on good sounds like these.

Some stay pretty constant...Seven Souls was a 300 quid record 10 yrs ago..

Class record.  Ñot gone up that much. Paid £200 for a issue probably 25 years ago.  Would buy another at the right price.

I came out of the closet to buy Rose Battiste. The record is now filed in the closet. I also helped push the price of Larry Allen to a silly level with a special secret strategy bid... I also helped push the the price of Maurice Williams up a few years ago with a similar bid - now every seller seems to think the highest sale price ever is the current going rate.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Modern-Soul-Boogie-45-MAGIC-Get-On-The-Dance-Floor-NORTHSIDE-HEAR-/323666370806?_trksid=p2047675.m43663.l44720&nordt=true&rt=nc&orig_cvip=true

$1100 ? You have to seriously question the buying habits of some poeple don't you? I'd never heard of it before, the record sounds in quite trashed condition anyhow and both tracks are so average it almost defies belief. I wonder how many LP's worth £15 and under, containing far better tracks than those, the buyer owns. It would be hard to call it a trophy.

I agree totally it sold for £60 in 2013, this happens though for some strange reason :)

I agree totally

If I stayed on the site long enough I knew someone finally would! 🙂

It's hard to believe there was at least one other "genuine" bidder prepared to pay close to the closing amount.
