    Iris ?? on MGM

    500? I wouldn't even pay a fiver for it. A record Ian Levine would play as a northern soul holy grail on his podcast, it's that bad. but seeing how many are after it on Discogs I'm in a minority. So real problem seems to be my taste in soul music

    Adam's apples info

    Might be true. The other Adam's Apples release on Brunswick, "You are the one I love" came out in Canada.
  5. not as weird as you think IMO. For exact the reasons you state. One is 40+ old, from the "good old days", hard to find and therefore much more collectable, one is readily available in quantities, less collectable, even though it's legit and in much better sound quality. Back on topic: I'm pretty astonished about the money one could make these days with selling pressings. They seized 150K in a Paypal account.!

    Poly record sleeves safe

    I surely agree to that. I used to store my records only in card sleeves and noticed all those tiny little hardly visible scratches over time. Then I used paper inner sleeves plus card board sleeves. Protects the records 100% but also takes up lots of space. I use them 150 count card board boxes* for storages. With paper and card board sleeves I only fit max. 100 in one box, that's 1/3 less. If you have only limited storage capacity that's quite an issue. My storage capacity is rather limited so I now use paper inner sleeves plus heavy duty outer poly sleeves to prevent the labels rubbing on each other. That way I fit about 130-140 records in a 150 count box. * 150 if you use paper sleeves only.

    US 60's Garage bands

    Themes is not a garage tune by any means. According to Discogs they're the same bunch as the 21th Century (of "Shadows of a memory" fame). M.B.'s means M.B.S. means Modern Blues Sounds. One of my alltime favourite blue-eyed soul records. So beautiful.

    US 60's Garage bands

    Was this really played at Wigan? This is one of the tunes that Keb plays nowadays.... Didn't know both were played on the Northern Scene? They sure are Garage records.

    US 60's Garage bands

    In my opinion most of the tunes posted here can't be classified as Garage (with a touch of soul). I'd put them into the Carolina Beach/Soul bag. I'm saying they are not good! Just not Garage-ish enough for me. Only proper Garage tunes posted that suitable for the Northern Soul scene (IMO) is Strangeloves and to a certain extent Dry Well (which I think is pretty psychedelic and of course a cover version)

Sleeve solid VG++ ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Paypal only. Worldwide P&P from Germany: £3.60 standard / £5.90 signed for / £7.50 Fully Insured (Europe only)
  11. Seems like my price wasn't nice enough. Now 150 quid for a quick sale!
  12. I'd say finding 1960's 45s in true NM/M- condition nowadays is almost impossible. Yet that grade is used by many. I stopped buying stuff on Soul Source as I got stung too often with poor grading. Sad but true.
  13. P.S. I throw in a full coulor copy of the original fact sheet that was sent out to radio stations, promoters, journalists etc...

    manship ending this wednesday

    And which ones are worth an auction? Maybe Just Bros and Deloris Ealy. All others are set sale items IMO.
