  1. Ive got a beautiful red & white demo, almost mint and your for just 2 grand!
  2. I missed one on Ebay recently at about the same price and was pretty miffed but thanks to you I bought the one on discogs. Cheers! Paul
  3. Thanks, I never look at discogs, maybe I should Paul
  4. Wanted Fred Hughes, Baby Boy Brunswick Demo, must be in EX condition or better. Cash waiting Thnaks
  5. His version of Get Ready is also well worth a spin
  6. Paul Capon suggested this, which is spot on. Take a look at most of the Dells stuff and you will find some real gems for peanuts, just because they were pressed in the tens of thousands and for some reason nobody wants them.
  7. It really depends if you want buy only original copies of if you are happy with bootlegs and reissues? In my opinion bootlegs are the scourge of our scene and anyone selling them should be strung up, but that's my opinion, lots of others think differently and are happy to buy them. Reissue are fine if they are official release by record companies or independent labels that are paying the royalties and of course there are loads of CD's and LP's available that will give you access to loads of really very rare recordings for next to nothing. The choice if yours. Paul
  8. Shit like this killed the Casino! https://www.ebay.com/itm/202716960007 And the twats who played it!
  9. Wanted at least Ex, please pm with price and codition
  10. For me it really missed the point. When I saw the trailers of the kids learning to dance I was genuinely excited because Soulboy which was such a disappointment but when I saw it I was just amazed at how it missed the point by as much. I was 15 years old when I first went to Wigan in late 1973 and sure there were loads of drugs and most but of us did partake BUT in the end it was all about the music and the dancing and the friendship and the atmosphere, and the exclusivity. So sorry Elaine,, you may have made few quid out of it but you are most definitely not Mrs Northern Soul and you missed a great opportunity to show the world what it was really like but instead you made a film about some lads who took loads of drugs and just happened to be into some soul music that was not meanstream.
  11. I almost died of embarrassment the night that this appeared on Top of The Pops. My whole family gathered around the TV to find out what me and my mates had been getting up to at those strange all night clubs that we went to. They took the piss for months and months. It was crap then and it is even worse now and all of the posers who danced on this and who went to Wigan the night Granada turned up to make their crap program should be shot!. They were the people who trashed our scene in the late 70's, they brought the bus loads of stiffs into our clubs. These are the same people who ran to the stage at Wigan for the poxy dance competitions, while the rest of us ran for Mr M's!
  12. Does anyone know what Rita & The Tiaras and Patti & The Emblems went for in last weeks auction
  13. I agree so much with all of this. I have visited a few of the big record dealers that we all know very well and I am staggered by some of the crap cheap turntables that they play their very expensive records on. When will they learn that these £100-200 decks, especially the USB ones with crap tone arms and cartridges that have never been set up properly are destroying their records!
  14. Does anyone have the results of this Wednesday's auction, as usual with his new site some are still there but most have disappeared
  15. What a brilliant idea A load of old codgers studying 50 year old music and holding allnighters in the students union every Friday and Saturday night, assisted by the boys and girls who are doing degrees in Chemistry!
  16. The last copy of Sam Williams that JM sold went for almost £4k, I remember this very well because it was only just M- and only a few months earlier he sold an unplayed copy of mine but it only made £2800.00
  17. Has the world gone completely nuts or am I missing something here? The highest price ever on Ebay was about £320.00 which I to me looks a lot BUT £1,337.00 Anyone who wants my stone mint, only played once copy drop me a line it's yours for £1250.00
  18. Looks like Ian has picked it, most definitely the BEST record that you can buy for £20 and possibly one of the best soul records ever, LOVE IT!
  19. OK but it is the same as these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Kenny-Smith-Lord-Whats-Happening-Go-For-Your-Self-Northern-Soul-Funk-45-7-/151555186509
  20. Hi All you experts out there, is this a bootleg? https://www.ebay.com/itm/NORTHERN-SOUL-Kenny-Smith-Lord-What-s-Happened-LISTEN/153165682279?hash=item23a962d667:g:vCYAAOSwAclbjbM~
  21. Yes they got shares in banks that then closed because they were bankrupt!
  22. The FTSE is at an all time high, it is 20% higher than the peak in 2006/7 and house prices have reached been climbing over the same period. All of these things drive the stock market and the value of your pension. The EU is falling apart at the seems with populist parties gaining more power in France, Austria, Holland and even Germany and of course the UK is doing a "Great Escape", none of this does not bodes well for the "Dons of Brussels". Then factor in the likelihood that anytime soon Italy will default on it's national debt and Germany will not be able to stop it and the next banking collapse is just around the corner. My advise to anyone of a "certain age" with a decent pension pot is cash it in and invest in something other than the banks, because if the banks go then the Government Guarantee schemes will be cancelled and just like Greece and Cyprus the government will empty our bank accounts of personal funds. You would actually be better off hiding it under the mattress, just ask all of those Greeks and Cypriots what they would have done had they known what was coming? I have family in Cyprus and between them (their are lots) they lost hundreds of thousands of Euros.
  23. I have to agree with you on Leon Collins, just about the best £5.00 I have ever spent!
