Price Guide British soul records

Posted

Where can I find a current price guide for the above.

Manship did a brilliant one one which must be getting on for 20 years old now and the record collector annual edition seems to be miles out in it's soul record valuations.

I don't know of one and not sure how viable published price guides compiled by record dealers are any more. As collectors, we've got more info available to us now about availability / demand / sales history now.. 

Discogs is quite helpful. You can see what things have actually sold for and gauge availability / rarity / demand. Bear in mind price highest price a record is offered for almost certainly isn't what it will shift for. There's tons of overpriced stuff that never moves that would do for a more realistic price. If I was pricing to sell, I'd undercut the cheapest on offer there in similar condition.

Also 45cat owned / want ratio is good for gauging rarity / demand (tends to be a more hardcore collectors site than Discogs).

Loads of other online resources of course.

Hope this helpful.

John Manship is currently updating his British guide. I think it will appear sometime next year.

As Joesoap says above. I'm not sure how relevant dealer price guides are anymore. Manship's guide is useful as a reference book but his prices rarely set the price now.
