It's probably fair to say that most record collectors are perennial list makers (well I certainly am) and I wondered have we ever tried to make some sort of list within this forum of original singles from the sixties and seventies that were released on coloured vinyl?

I'm no expert on the subject so I welcome any additions from other interested members on here. Label/record scans most appreciated.

I'll kick off said list with this little beauty? The Commands "Don't be afraid to love me" (Dynamic) on yellow vinyl.

(Seem to think years and years ago I used to have a copy of this but sold it on 'cos it was only VG+ or summat (doh!) Have got an orange issue with picture sleeve in Ex condition though).

The Icemen "It's time you knew" (Ole-9) aren't there some copies of this on blue vinyl?

Gloria Taylor "You got to pay the price" (Silver Fox) white label promos on blue vinyl (think I've got a copy tucked away somewhere under mi bed).

Also have had several Tamla Motown 45's (American releases) over the years on coloured vinyl. Can't remember details off hand.

The Professionals (Groove City) with the infamous 'one-off' gold vinyl copy. Anybody know the real story behind this 45?

Had a very early orange plastic - Popeye the sailor man - on 78  - actually played it one night at the Fantasia as a joke. After Al Caliola & orchestra - Theme from Bonanza - instrumentals were still king in '72, actually had the floor jumping until it dawned on people what it actually was. Great start to my spot - and actually switched to Professionals - black vinyl not gold and night progressed from there.

There are at least two gold copies of the Professionals. Robin Salter found one in I believe Ohio of all places. Think Tim Ashibende may have found the other.

Mhm although I am not a fan of colored vinyls (and/or styrene. Yes there are some colored out there but not 'see through' then), being more of a trad collector bloke choosing where I prefer my stockers and promos issues with more vigor (as I like to believe) regardless of rarity but more for my eyes pleasure, I always am amazed by them.

Yes, I love my vinyl black... why don't you think about it... Say it loud ! (LOL) Those colored pressings are much harder to visualize in scrutiny. Black is indeed only a colorant added for better visualisation of the groove. Then there are those seemingly black but that are not when held behind a light source. Like some copies of Robert Portee 'Casanova' on Diamond or the Icemen on Ole-9...

Still the Commands 'don't be afraid' looks amazing in yellow vinyl. The picture cover is priceless IMO. Their previous number 'hey it's love' c/w 'no time for you' had a red vinyl release as well for the promo as far as I remember. Fitted with a picture cover to die for as well. And those picture covers came with the stockers and promos alike.

The Tonettes 'I gotta know' still on Dynamic (no picture sleep though (sic !)) had a red promo vinyl I remember seing. And I remember once seing pin on a collector's wall a copy of the Trips 'bring it back' c/w 'her comes those heartaches' on Victoria on a violet/mauve vinyl next to Dave Coleman 'down in the basement' on a pale blue/whitish styrene...

Yes the Dave Coleman 'down in the basement' on Togo copy I was referring to is indeed also one of those Bell/Amy/Mala printed on (plastic) styrene label...

Long since gone but back in the late 70s I used to have a few Bobby Patterson yellow vinyl singles on Jetstar. I think they were all promos and at the time quite common yet no one has posted one up. Are they still around or have they disappeared in to dormant collections?

The colored vinyl Jetstar 45's are let's say "common". If a tad rarer than their black vinyl stockers counterparts, it's only by a thin margin. I believe to less common/known variations are the target for this topic... Like anything decent that use to float around, they just do not anymore indeed.

That is some bootleg stuff that would bring the tread to other comments and proportions I am afraid.

Oh yes it is. Likely done for the USA market (beach scene or else) and often presented as a rare red vinyl promo variation copy. Inducing it's a variant press but not claiming it is the real deal at the same time...

I am a record collector, I did take the time to join again tonight, but I am slowly loosing the will to live again.

I have no idea how to upload a picture here

I only wanted to post a picture of the king coleman on a blue 45 for you.

It is a  rare thing and a great cool mod rnb tune.

"believe it or not" is the blue 45, unknown tune if it was not for the cd release  and only a couple of blue 45s on popsike, a real gem.   

down in the basements are all black vinyl (blue and purple labels) and are fair easy , believe it or not is the really rare king coleman 45 imo.

This is only my experience, if anyone has anything to add please do.

Ill post a picture of the blue thing up later.

 

Oh I also had a 60s issue of Willie Rosario Wobbly Blues on red vinyl on BMC 45 

Not had any other Soul / RnB things apart from the Eddie Foster Boot

I think they  were usually vanity projects for the bands / singers / songwriters etc generally and that is why they are rare / unusual

I have a couple of 60's coloured vinyls from Jamaica

Thanks Mike, I thought I was going crazy trying to work out how to upload 😁

So here is the blue King Coleman. An seriously rare 45 I believe and a cool Mod RnB tune too.

Got this from a friend a few years back. He did have two copies, the other copy was a different colour, which he also sold.

Maybe a bit hard to find, never heard of it before, but you never know.

Cool record, but not a particularly rare 45, there are currently 6 copies for sale on Discogs and a couple pass through ebay every year. His 45 on the Vi-Tose label is rare though, and the one on Big Apple is also scarce and was issued on dark red vinyl:

@  Sebastian - your totally right, I never look at discogs ( I probably should shouldn't I :) )

 I always check popsike and  only ever saw the 2, so assumed it was a tricky 45.

Still a fab tune !!

Thanks

Popsike probably the most unreliable resource when checking prices, its the last place I check.  At least discogs are actual set sales, yes the odd anomaly, take the extremes out and you can find an average.  Many sellers no longer bother with Ebay.

I agree, however the problem is that Discogs and other sites who do average sales prices don't mention where in the world they were sold from and to and shipping is a cost as well to the value of a record purchase IMHO

Example 

I sell single for £70 to Uk and shipping is £2.56 signed for and US is over £9.50 so price of purchase has shot up including shipping costs

I would have thought that they could (with modern technology) give a true average price

absolutely, the price of the post means you have to take that cost into the end thing.

it matters on 15 pound tunes that now cost another 10 dollars to post

no point in buying them anymore

unless it something that is interesting

No site factors shipping in, discogs is the best at giving you an average price as you can see the sales history.  Anyway, this is digressing from the topic.
