There's a lot of speculation to whether or not he's pressing all the rarities he sells, but I've bought about 7 things from him and as far as I'm concerned they're 100% real. The rumours surrounding the Oxford Nights are certainly nottrue - a mate of mine bought one and it's absolutely pukka :yes: he got it for far less than it would cost from a UK dealer too: he payed $700 (approx £370), I payed almost double that :yes:

Is the label shiney or matt?

Counterfeits of all labels with similar colour scheme to the Counts (i.e. black & silver, red & silver) all have glossy labels, where 99% of the orig's have a matt label.

That's supposedly how you tell the orig's of the Oxford Nights from the boots, from what I've heard the boots aren't that glossy anyway, and the orig's aren't totally matt (mine isn't anyway, and it's definately real). Best way to tell is to look for 'Music City' stamped in the run-out. I'd think the Counts would have a stamp in the run-out too :yes:

I paid almost that too :thumbsup: Mate of mine got one a month or so ago for $400. Oh, the joys (not) of buying records :angry:

Without getting into a heated debate about what's good Northern and what's bad, I can't understand why anyone would want to spend that kind of money on what are two poor Northern records IMO...... :thumbsup:

I dint think Royal Five was worth agreat deal so I assume the big money is for the oxford nights? :thumbsup:

link

Thought Royal Five made about £200? ...but yes I was reffering to Oxford Nights. I still rate it at about £650, and a friend of mine has just payed £600 and considered that rather cheap :thumbsup:

Tis a brill record though :thumbsup:

he seems to have alot of the swinging singing counts as the price seems to be dropping gradually

dont know if its been booted but still a good track

link

Been a long time since I've been on here but thought I'd chuck me two penneth in on this one - apparently the Counts has been booted with gold lettering rather than silver.

With the number of copies about how can the Oxford Knights be worth £650 :sleep3: It's listed on e-bay weekly. If folk did their homework and refused to buy from the sellers the price would slowly come down to reasonable levels.
