Teddy Pendergrass, 'More I Get The More I Want'

Posted

I heard this excellent and very well-known track played at a do last night. Fairly sure I've got one but can't be arsed trawling through all the boxes in storage. So I had a look on Discogs and sellers want silly money on a 7 (around 50 quid mark) for a record that must have done very well at the time.  It's on the b-side of 'Whole Town's Laughing At Me' - one of his best known and most popular records. 

Why so expensive? Am I missing something here?

Because it's started to get played in northern rooms? It should be dirt cheap. Fantastic record.

The strange world of Northern Soul, Didn't want 'em, wouldn't play 'em when they were new releases now want 'em years later because they ARE getting played AGAIN as established oldies, and paying through the nose for them, Good job some of us weren't Snobs back then, you couldn't write this stuff, Or Could You ? 🤣

It's on the Paradise Garage mix CDs, David Morales mixes and gets played by the likes of Horse Meat Disco so we're not necessarily the driver for its demand.

I collect that stuff too. It's been played since a new release in New York, etc and on the jazz/ funk / boogie scene in UK. There's various releases on 12 available plus the LP so I don't think they are driving sudden demand for the 7...

You can pick up the LP for under£15, is this the same take as the single?

No. Longer on the LP. Also there have been various 12s over the years with a longer take. The LP comes up in London charity shops quite often for less than that, too.

The one I posted is a disco mix released to djs on a promo 12" only. Quite hard to get. I believe all the subsequent reissues /boots of it have got the LP version which is good but not as good / sought-after.
