Know how hubby feels Alison - great record but OH MY GOD what a price. Won't be long before Northern/Modern Soul is out of the reach of most and in the hands of a lucky few :-(

How many were pressed?

link

Apparently originally there was in excess of 1000 pressed whistling.gifwhistling.gif lord alone knows where they are now though. In the scheme of things that isn't really that many when you consider the minimum press runs for some of the majors whistling.gif

Probably sat collecting dust in someones garage :rolleyes:

I think Sam first played it in the mid 80's as part of the moddun thing going down then, and may well have reviewed it in Blackbeat or something. It then got forgotten about, and rediscoevered in 2001... huh.gif

With discs commanding these kind of prices, its about time there was a Nothern Soul museum opened to let us mortals look at such discs.

I remember the price crash in the early 80s when prices hit rock bottom. Collections were almost given away. God forbid it turns full circle again, or there will be some frustrated collectors.

Gash - you may well find Sam had it in the 80's, sold it and completely forgot about it when repurchasing it. Don't make me check those Blackbeats now - I'm sure I'll find it mentioned somewhere!

Steve, from the look on Sam's face when he heard my bro play it about 5 years ago and ran up to the decks nearly tripping up on the steps in his rush to see what it was, I doubt that he had it. After finally getting his own copy from Butch he always generously credited Dave with turning him on to it whenever he played it.

Ok, fair do's. It's probably one of only a handful of records he didn't get at the time tho'.
