Rarest Of The Rare - 70's / Modern

Posted

After looking at someones 70's / modern, whatever you want to call them, "wants", I was just thinking what are the rarest of the rare non-60's sounds?

Is there a Frank Wilson "Holy Grail" type equivalent?

Natural Impulse - She went away ... almost impossible to get any bugger to sell it. My Holy Grail for sure.

King Moses on Pet is rare as RHS.

What sort of numbers are we talking about here? Values too? And of course, any sound files would be welcome!

The album is only a test pressing, and was not commercially released.

Rarer than Frank Wilson too. :D

This is surely one of them, 6-8 copies ?? Not sure on the year but I bought it in 1981, I think Richard had just uncovered it at the time.

Yes, a toughie indeed, presumably Brownie hasn't got one as it wasn't on the

Millionaires CD :D

Here's a scan, shame the label is so boring, deserves much better

Yeah, I'd say this was one of the Rarest, considering it's been around since 1980 you'd think some might have turned up by now :D

As good a candidate as any for rarest of the rare 70's/Modern would be the Gloria Scott 7" on Australian Casablanca; general consensus is that there were only a handful at most issued for promotional purposes when the Astor company in Australia gained the rights to the US Casablanca label...

As far as I know it is, but who really can say with authority ? All I know of are the ones that John Anderson had. I certainly remember Searling and either Sam or Arthur Fenn having one . I believe my copy was one of those that was traded back in as I picked it up on a trip to the King's Lynn emporium all those years ago.

Let's not forget Tommy Tate on Koko either. On Bobby Wilburn both pretty tough, not sure which is the rarer at this point....so far no JV claiming ownership of King Moses - thanks for the post - I hadn't seen it.....didn't John M have another Alonzo Johnson a while back? I thought it was on auction?....Jim Gilstrap "Run run run£££?

Mmmm, I wasn't convinced about our Tommy, too many people claim to have run some off when it was first found. BUT given the diff mix (inferior imho) who knows, alhtough it is possible to remix anything these days.

Here's a scan, the lad who found the first one lived a few miles away

Yes John but it's shite so no one takes interest in it :D (see you at Ponds Forge tonight! :D )

How about these (only had a quick browse through so forgive me if these have already been mentioned)...

Psychodelic Frankie - still a big want of mine

Natural Impulse

C. Coulter

Fluorescent Smogg

Joseph Webster

Tolbert

Tavasco - not in the same price league as above buy bloody hell try and find one! :D

Four Dynamics & Tommy Tate - I know these have already been mentioned, but I don't think they're as rare as the other stuff mentioned. I spoke to Christian B. about Four Dynam's and he thought £2500, I thought nearer £1200, unless someone cares to put me straight... :D ..brilliant record though! :D:D ....and the Tommy Tate, don;t think this is that rare, know about 4 people who have them, but still easily £500's worth. :yes:

There was a 12" of the Mark IV on ebay about a month ago that didn't make the $600 reserve. Shame I was skint, otherwise I'd have had that. :D

That 'Save The Youth' is one of the best tracks I never hear out. Just none about. How big would that be if there was a few more about???

I know it's not in the same league as any of the above, but how many of these are about????
