  1. The text on the label looks very slightly different to my eyes - exact same layout, but the small print just looks slightly thinner...

  5. Does the original not play for a bit - even if it's in the dad's imagination?

  7. The original of Amazing Love is backed with Popping Poocorn (on Ro-Jam). The re-issue of Amazing Love has Love Of My Girl on the flip (on Three Diamonds). Don't think it was re-issued on Ro-Jam, looks like you have an original! Nice double-sider...

  8. The original post was aimed at an example I gave for sales for Gwen McCrae's "Keep The Fire Burning" on UK 45 - various members couldn't believe it was selling for £30+ and I merely uploaded the attached screengrab from Discogs showing that, on numerous occasions, it HAD sold for in the region of £30. At no point did I say the single is worth £123, or even bring the crazy price into question, it was obviously an anomaly - I was merely showing that sales of £30 weren't unusual. Are there really dealers who buy their own stock at massively inflated prices, pay the fees on the bogus sale, and then sell the next copy for far under the bogus price, swallowing up the bogus fees into the new transaction? I have no idea... but previous historic sales figures are out there, so can't see why somebody would be suckered into paying over the odds. Unless they want to. What about Manship's "Tainted Love" auction which finished at £800+ this week? Should we assume that didn't happen unless it can be proved that the money actually changed hands?

  9. Pretty sure it's a different label - Four Sonics label is Detroit-based, with three releases in total. Story I heard was it was Keb Darge found Patrinell Staten on a digging trip with John Manship, the deal being Keb got all the funk and John got all the soul. So... Keb had to hand it over!

  10. Err, okay, getting back to the original post - "why is this record selling for £30+?" Well, there must be SOME people chasing it and buying it - recent sales on Discogs attached, showing it's not just an optimistic blip. 38 members have it, 329 people want it. I've actually got the 12" and the 7" - not a huge fan of the slap bass solo on the twelve to be honest...

  11. Maybe not "lots" of them, and maybe not exclusively disco collectors, but there are growing numbers of DJs who only play 45s. Personally, I've got no time for long intros and instrumental breaks - why play one long record when you could play three short ones instead?

  12. Because a lot of disco collectors are now chasing 45s, when previously it was only really 12"s they wanted? What was probably considered too modern to play on the northern soul scene back in the day is now a 36 year old record which fits in with other similar spins? The US copies seem to go for £30+ so British collectors are happy to pay that for a UK copy, plus you get a picture sleeve? The UK copy has "Funky Sensation" on the flip, which the US one doesn't - so you get two tunes for the price of one? There are probably 100s more reasons, but there's a few to be going on with...

  13. Anyone?! Are there copies filed in collections or is it just very hard to find?
