7 Dwarfs SORTED SORTED

Recommended Posts

OK Guys i think i may just be able to recount my story behind the 7 Dwarfs  Stop Girl on Ideal .I Think i have the dates right but was 13 and the record was a popular youth club spin during 1978 79 when it was a casino play.I ordered a copy from a mail order list and it arrived about 2 weeks later.i was shocked when i saw the copy as it was very thin vinyl thinner than any of my other records.So i took it round to my older casino regular mates house to compare it with his copy.As soon as he saw it he laughed and said thats a crap pressing Patto sling it and ill get you a copy like mine for 75p .His copy was on nice thick vinyl.So i gave him the 75p and threw my copy onto his parents coal fire and watched it curl up and melt.Some 20 years later when the internet came to the fore i realised that the one i threw on the fire was very likely the original copy and the replacement i had was the Boot.So i have tried for years to rectify it and get a real one.So far i have bought 3 off ebay which all claimed to be original but had to be sent back.I have aked every one who has a copy to check and they have all turned out to be the boots.I have seen 2 real ones played by DJs and seen 4 real ones for sale.I missed em all by hours.Last one i missed just before Christma as i was skint buying pressies.

So im after one.A decent playable original.A Deffo original with details as per Manship below.Please PM me if you have one for sale to a loving home.I have Some nice trades that can go as well.But cash waiting for a fair priced copy.

To paraphrase John Manship -one of the World's most respected NS dealers:

The originals have moulded on labels on very thin 'flexible' vinyl.
deadwax details: etched in matrix 1168A (no gaps).
The top circle on the 8 is lopsided and larger than the bottom circle with what appears to be a triangle attached to it.
Hold the 1168A in the six o'clock position and there is an etched in upside down F/W in the 11 o'clock position.
Unless these details are in the deadwax it is a counterfeit.

Apart from the above being missing, the counterfeit is also distinguished by 1168 A (gap between the 8 and A) and more importantly the composer credits Dame Francis - the e at the end of Dame is smudged - on the original the e is crisp and clean

Good luck. It took me 25 years to get a real one. Sold it 7 years as part of my collection.  It is genuinely a rare record

IT is mate very hard.Its not everyones cup of tea and lots hate it.So thankfully its not that much in demand.If the prices are crazy then my chase will have to end but this is my last punt.

Ouch... Nearly as bad as throwing a Magnetics on Bonnie off Cleethorpes Pier. Good luck with your search.

Arnt they both the same pic mate.The e looks smuged in them both.The clincher is the matrix details as in my post

The top one has all the etchings in the right place and the funny shaped 8 and the w at 6 o'clock 1168A at 1 pm.............the boot has 1168 A at 9pm 8 in a normal shape  and no w
