  1. any chance of a scan or photo ?
  2. That was a great read and a great story, thanks guys ! To think if she hadn't left The Wonderettes we would never have had the two sided Big Wheel gem
  3. Haven't had time to listen to it all the way through, just hopped along every few mins, but managed to find a brief introduction between some tracks and it probably is Max, its always difficult to tell who a DJ is on an old live tape, but the way he says things, he was still saying similar phrases right to the end of his DJ'ing life. Safe to say it is him for now. I will find the time to listen to it properly and get back to you
  4. Because I felt as you did about never getting a bargain I promised myself years ago that if I ever had one of those " I paid 50p for a £500 record and it played well, arrived on time, etc" it would be a sign that my collecting career had run its course and it was time to call it a day. The following day I was just about to turn off the computer and I spotted a Livin the Nightlife on Wand, approx £6 including the postage. It had been listed for the other side, which is actually my favourite side. I suppose at the time it would have sold for maybe £250-300. Of course I bought it, and immediately
  5. Most of the scene at that time were fortunate enough to see them perform this live. Totally captivated, perfect exciting dancer for that era. My top 20 N/S records of all time change daily, but this almost always features, because part of being a purist is refusing to deny what actually happened, which records were and weren't played, enjoyed, danced to etc
  6. It'll always be JJ Barnes to me, but I'm a dedicated fan of the art of covering up.
  7. Fab Jades, 1606 dollars, I know its become quite popular with the dancers lately, but what sort of price has it been selling for prior to this auction ( I know this is a tricky question because of the counterfeits which might get listed as originals)
  8. Martin Robinson was after one of these the other week, will message him
  9. title says 4 records but you've only listed 3? HTH
  10. A similar really nice condition WDJ went for £1000 on discogs, so this price doesn't surprise me, even taking into account the WDJ is more common than the stock issue. It's been a guaranteed floor filler for a long time, 20 years maybe? so the demand has outstripped supply a long time back, 60-150 seemed to be the price for a while, but once it crossed over from the rare scene to mainstream venues it doubled overnight and then kept climbing in price as more prospective DJ's decided they wanted it for their local clubs, as is often the way once rare scene tunes reach that tipping point. It's
  11. The word Waylo just jumped to the front of my brain, and a quick check on Discogs and there it is. It was indeed Jackie Ross and perhaps the reason it didn't show up on internet searches is because the remade version has no gap in the title, so it's called selfishone, not Selfish One. If anybody has a copy could they please let me hear it, the official A title is I'm Gonna Make It Without You, but I want to hear the remade selfishone. They appear easy to buy at around 10 dollars, which kinda makes me think it's worse than I remember, but 1988 productions in general weren't soul musics fine
  12. Thanks for trying, sadly not Ty Karim. I feel it was at least a sizeable hit the first time round, at least a radio hit. I'm guessing the artist didn't feel they'd earned enough first time, so another try with another label ( the 2nd attempt wasn't as strong as the first one)
  13. great idea, but the one I mean is the same artist having another go at the record she'd made before. Thanks for trying
  14. Some years back I stumbled across an alternative version of a classic soul song, done by the same artist but in a more relaxed 70's style, as opposed to the early/mid 60's original. When I thought about it yesterday I began to wonder of it was Jackie Ross 'Selfish One'? In it's original guise It was a record that was played on the scene in the earlier days, but also one that had achieved chart success. I'm not talking about a remake done as part of Ian Levine's project, this is something that I'd guess was remade in the 70's or early 80's. I remember first seeing it on ebay maybe a dozen yea
