As far as I know, it was never pressed with the proper B side so thats why I bid over £200 on it...if it was a pressing, then - phew!

No it's not the same, that's the one with the instrumental on the B side which as far as I know is the only bootleg. If you look underneath that you'll see the proper one listed as not available

Not arguing with you but I've never seen one in, what, 33 years - but I've had every other pressing on the label numerous times...it can't have been distributed like the others were

My thoughts exactly, never, ever seen one.

I have the "more common" boot with the Instrumental

and some of the other Titles on Soul Town Boots.

In the boot guide it makes no mention of a proper design Soultown copy. And like I said, I've never seen one, you'd think after all these years and seeing thousands and thousands of records you'd see one copy.

The others quite easy to pick up at the time, Never seen The Sweets - Satisfy Me Baby / Something About My Baby

I had one of these but gave it away with a load of cheepies thinking it was pressing as I bought it very early on in my time on the scene as a boot. I've never had a real one to be sure if it was different. Don't know whether I hope it was a real one or not now.

The one on ebay looks identical to the scan in JM's "Million Dollars of Rare Soul"

Someone got the bargain of the year

I have an original-- although it's difficult to tell by looking at a scan as such I am certain that it was never booted with Something About My Baby on the other side

At the time the fast Satisfy Me Baby was the side to have and was booted with the instrumental flip

I suspect that when Original copies came into the country, just like any other at the time they were overlooked.

Problem being that Soultown had been selected as an Authentic looking, cheap to produce 2 colour label for the other BOOTs.

I must also say that untill this thread, I would have been just as cautious when bidding,

It's only by swapping thoughts and Information that things like this come to light.

As already stated, It looks like "Someone got the bargain of the year"

This clinches It for me Pete, The Bootleggers must have pressed similar quantities of all the titles surely.

I wonder what the seller is thinking right now.

May be happy with the £238, after all probably assumed it was a Boot

(& who could blame them) Could even know now, or be thinking what the F........ ?

It's an original, and worth at least £1500 which is what I got for a copy about 2 years back, and regretted selling it.

OUCH! Indeed.

I have heard a few people say, I've got some records, they're all pressings,

They're In the loft or garage in a box. Just shows, you never know.

I had new neighbours move in next door to me in 1990 - after a few months, and once we'd got to know each other better, he popped round one day with a white plastic carrier bag containing approx 30 45's. His mate had been active on the soul scene some years earlier and this was the remnants of his collection (Max from Cambridge apparently went thru them first!). I gave him about 50p per disc - all 'classic' boots with the exception of two: Cobblestones on Mercury issue & Wade Flemons 'Jeanette'!!!!

Wot a hit!!! er... not quite: firstly, sold the Wade Flemmons to a friend of a friend one Ritz a/n after they caught me with my box outside the toilets - and as he was a mate of a mate I felt charitable and let him have it for a tenner! Instead of the twenty I was gonna ask. Worse still... some guy had sat there and witnessed all this take place - only after I'd watched a very happy chappy depart with his new purchase did this bloke turn and say to me: 'you know that sells for £200 don't you'!!!

The Cobblestones (never a favourite tune of mine) saw people tripping over themselves to be the first to secure it for the £10 price tag I attached to it. It was only when I then asked someone what it was fetching I realised I'd just gravitated another testacle!!

The way I prefered to look at it was based on the original purchase price I paid, that way the sick feeling wasn't quite so intense! :lol:

If I'd had a bit of time I'd have checked the bank account but in all honesty I don't think I had more than 400 quid so that's all I could have bid, I think I put 250 on it with 30 seconds left but even then I was still only about 95% certain it was real. Still. comforting to know that only 2 of us spotted it :P
