Advice Gratefully Received

Recommended Posts

Guest

As I know very little about Northern Soul im here for your advice.

I have about 40 what seem to be Northern Soul 45's. Theyve been in my loft for around 15 years since I picked them up at a car boot sale.

The majority seem to be emidiscs/promos/demos whatever you like to call them. Must have been part of a dj's collection.

I'll give you a few of the artists, hopefully they will be familiar to you.

Miss DD Phillips - Hey Little Girl / Shades of Brass - Windy (evolution)

Barbara English - Sittin in the corner (aurora promo)

Tony Clarke - Landslide (promo)

Lydia Marcelle - Its not like you / Admirations - Heaven in your arms (emidisc)

Silver Bullet - Will Power Weak... / The Tempos - Sad sad memories (emidisc)

Ron Dante - The Charmer / Moses - I got my mind together (emidisc)

The Pagients - Love is on a rampage / TD Valentine - lovetrap (emidisc)

Frankie Crocker - A ton of dynamite / The Exciters - reaching for the best (emidisc)

Johnny Ross - I cant help myself / Dave Mitchell - The trip (emidisc)

Tyrone Ashley - Feet start moving / Carole Woods - Heading down fools road (emidisc)

Chico Revill - This Beautiful Day / Little Helen - Youre ready now (Destiny promo 1979)

And theres more.

Do these have any value? The conditions vary from excellent to average. I would be grateful for any advice.

You'll find out that the postage is more than the value of the disc!

Yes, as i said, the penny's dropped. Are these things unique to the Northern Soul scene?

Anyway, it appears that out of the 40 i now have 3 'real' records!

Well thats a bit of a bonus. The DD Phillips one is in good nick, the Barbara English one needs a clean first.

Alls well that ends well!

Before you book a Champagne dinner, just be aware that both of these records were bootlegged/counterfeited.

Looking at what else was in the haul, i'd suggest that these probably are boots.

WOOF!

Just found the dd phillips one on ebay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...4712128464&rd=1

Mine doesnt look like that. My label is just two colours. A creamy background with black writing and evolution logo, also doesnt have the multicoloured bit across the top, I guess i can cross that one off the list.

Yep, yours is a bootleg.......

Barbara English boot is white and blue label.... its also single sided.

Original is multicoloured with the majority being grey.

Info taken form Manships Guide To Bootlegs 3rd Edition.

WOOF!

Ypu may well have unwittingly stumbled across "Russ Winstanley's" record collection then. :huh:

To be honest im startin to feel a bit of a fool. Vinyl isnt my area and neither is soul.

I guess the chances of the Barbara English being genuine are somewhere between nil and thin ranting_1.gif
