  1. The seller gets charged commission and the buyer gets charged commission too. So, the auction house takes, for example, 20% from the buyer AND 20% from the seller making a 40% commission. Nice work if you can get it...
  2. Is it the same copy or has a second one turned up?
  3. Thanks for clearing that up Sebastian. It seemed a strange choice to bootleg those two, when there are other more collectable ones. I'm aware of one re-issue label which had pressed limited records, only to find extra copies of those records ending up in circulation via the pressing plant...
  4. Exactly. I find it very unlikely that two dealers would each sit on at least five copies of the 37th anniversary 45, and then decide to sell them for £25 (& £40) a pop three years later. Has Ady C seen this thread?
  5. A Japanese company called Jico has recently announced a replacement for the Shure WhiteLabel - you could previously get them from a (Dutch?) company called Tonar (they sounded pretty good, but mine seemed to deteriorate pretty quickly...). You need to order direct from Japan and you'll get hit with import tax. www.jico-stylus.com/product-category/shure/
  6. I was about to ask where? Then I checked ebay. Then I noticed that certain titles seem to crop up a LOT. This seller has sold FIVE mint copies of numbers 37 and 38. And has copies currently listed as Buy-It-Now. With blurry photos. Don't want to start a panic on a level with coronavirus but... don't tell me these 6Ts singles have been booted????? https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/m.html?_odkw=&_ssn=susasnowde-5&hash=item3d9b4d0b80%3Ag%3AP2IAAOSwkARd4A7S&item=264598522752&LH_Complete=1&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2046732.m570.l1313.TR10.TRC0.A0.H0.X6Ts+kent.TRS0&_nkw=6Ts+kent&_sacat=0 Just looking at Sandra Richardson, currently four copies for sale Buy-It-Now and Sweep113 has FIVE listed - that's nine. Something dodgy going on if you ask me.
  7. Always loved this, great Ashford/Simpson song. Then I found out it was Faith Brown on vocals... and then decided I loved it even more... Was there ever a US group who recorded this? Wonder how it ended up being recorded in the UK...
  8. Looking for a copy of: Nathan Bartell ‎– Ooh Baby, I Love You / If I Could Win Your Love (Soul-Po-Tion) Any help much appreciated. Thanks!
  9. If it was in a radio station archive, it'd be the promo they were sent. I seem to remember when all the BBC stock turned up 15 years or so back, there was talk that the BBC had many titles in triplicate and, as previously mentioned, had libraries scattered around the UK which were being assimilated. So they were downsizing to "just" having everything in duplicate. I know somebody who visited the BBC library for a Record Store Day feature a year or two ago and apparently it was absolutely vast - just an insane amount of records. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b08mdly5 And lastly, apparently, there was a feature on a daytime show in the 80s where listeners got in contact with a story about a record they had which had gone missing - the circumstances surrounding it etc. I think they finished it when listeners would get in touch claiming to have lost their Tintern Abbey single (£1000 psych single, for example) while at a wild party, but eventually the powers that be clicked that a few of the stories might have been made up for nefarious purposes!
  10. Been enjoying Patti Jo again, which led me back to this thread. And while trying to find a way to hear Steve's "This Is The Price" acetate - I found a link to this site with Patti Jo releases on Allsun, including aforementioned "This Is The Price": http://www.allsunrecords.com/artists/pattijo.html Does anybody know anything about these?
  11. Never seen or heard of a Ska Beat company sleeve - would love to see one.
