Why £300 Carolyn Crawford 6t's 40th Anniversary ?

Posted

any idea why so many (I have seen probably 7-8) are going for £200-300 on eBay. Usually they go for £50-60 immediately after the night then eventually down to £25-30.  Was tempted to sell mine & buy back later but have an odd emotional attachment to the one I was given personally.

That's a great question and I agree there have been so many criticisms of new records being overpriced and how dealers are ripping off the buyers

I will wait for it to

They rarely go down to 23-30, the ones not so in demand are 40/50, the in demand ones are well into three figures.

The Carolyn Crawford side is miles better than any of the last 4 or 5 years anniversary singles IMO - thats what I'm putting it down to

Not as good as Paramount Four which goes for £80-100. Eventually in a few years it could get a Kent Select release then it won’t be worth £300.

I’ve bought a couple recently for £15-20 inc last years Smith Brothers. I have all the anniversary singles but happy to pick up cheap if I see them. I see Roger Banks just sold a load for prices well below Discogs & eBay prices.

He did but I bet the likes of Chuck Jackson and Carla Thomas are up for sale soon at a three figure sum.  I’ve sold most lately cheapest £40.  Same for Horace releases cheapest £30, some 60/70.

I can't understand anyone selling them full stop.  An event such as The 100 Club 40th Anniversary is something that will never be repeated (Hence the prices I suppose)

Nina and I would get one each when we went to the anniversary's, so sometimes we would give one away to friends - No regrets as they went to good homes.

I was there with my wife, being part of the little italian contingent that Butch mentioned during on of his set. I kept my copy and gave my wife's one (she doesn't collect records luckily 🤣) for free to one friend who couldn't make it for the trip to the 100s. And I won't regret it, no doubt about it.

I always give my anniversary records to a friend who collects , I don't own a record player or collect myself so they go to him, I don't even think or care about how much they are worth, you can't put a price on happiness 🎶

just been looking at the winning bidders , most are “won” by a member with no rating and beating someone with almost no rating. Be interesting to know if any seller got paid.

Gutted I decided to give the anniversary  a miss. Great single and like both sides. 

Can't put a price on happiness so true 😊

To me the previous records given are memories never to be sold.

Wish I could erase the memories of that tedious journey home 😂

I think this will be the first Kent disc to perhaps get to £400/ £500 the 40 years is a huge thing but I can honestly say the quality is utterly incredible! The Mikki Stevenson cut is brilliant and the flip side is bloody great also . 
This just follows a general trend of quality going for money on new release 45s  and Kent Select release will make no difference imho collectors want these discs .

the disc that sold for £310 by a seller with no feedback to someone with only 1 feedback who beat someone with only 1 feedback has been relisted at £210 or best offer …. shows that prices being manipulated.

Definitely some fraudulent bidding, reported the item.

What's this got to do with dealers, these are individuals looking to cash in. I don't see it on all the regular dealers lists.
