I really don't get this. Why would anyone pay £500 for the Steinways? I sold one about 6 weeks ago for £100 or £125, it cannot possibly be worth more than £150.

Why don't I get customers like that! thumbsup.gif

Don't know if you saw earlier this year that Greg Perry on Alfa went for around £170......would be interested to know why someone bidded on this when there were copies on Gemm for a whole lot less at the exact same time.

(suppose they may not all be on the WWW !)

The Four Tracks was in very poor condition. Why pay near top price for a poor copy. JM has had a copy for a while but I think this one may be th copy sold on Ebay recently for around £800.

was it because the recent one was a white demo or summat - saw one at the last 100 club I went to for 250.

out of interest, how much did the johnny hampton and sonny craver go for???

There are many deep soul fans out there who'd disagree with that comment Brett. :thumbsup:

......................

I found 3 copies of Paul Thompson 18 months ago in the US, issues with "Special kinda woman" on one side. Later in the trip I visited the Stax museum and spoke to the curator about records they needed for the museum, they were only 8 short and Paul Thompson was one of them, after refusing to donate a copy to the museum (!!) I told her that i`d look out for a copy of the demo. I found a copy in PA and emailed her a few times but received no reply, must of found one already!

Guys, Hey, You can all have one!! Three copies is nothing, I had one myself, one for me to sell and one for my mate to sell and they are gone!! Thats why i think if 20 copies of a record turn up then thats nothing, just a blip on the rarity of a record.

I just gotta tell you the full story;

We were in the US for 3 months, me and my mate from school, Stuart. He has only a basic knowledge of soul. As we were driving along he said "there is a shop in this city about an hour away" "Is it worth a look?" says I....... Stu phoned the shop and says "Yeah its worth stopping for"

We get into the store and the place is packed with kids listening to a grungy band at one end of the room, I just killed him with a look! We went downstairs to look at only 3 boxes of 45s, I pull out a Paul Thompson and while explaining exactly what it is Stu is holding a Will collins on Bareback in his hands!

To cut a long story short we spent 2 days in that store milking the stock, going thru the back room. Since then the owner has put me onto some great contacts in the area and I`ve been back time and time again.

Happy days!

Chris
