    What’s the most you’ve paid for a record

    George Pepp - The Feeling Is Real. Bid on Tim Brown's auction a few years ago (guessing around 10 years ago). Didn't expect to win but I'd at least 'had a go' and could claim as much to my mates. Was gobsmacked to be told that I was successful as my bid was around £1,000 less than I'd been advised I'd need to bid to have a fighting chance of winning. Didn't have the £ (as not expecting to win). Had to tell the wife to see if she could loan me the balance so that I could save face and have the record. She did her nut big time, but agreed to the loan after I'd told her that it was a relative bargain and I'd make around £1,000 if I sold it on. She didn't speak to me for 3 days afterwards when it dawned on her that I was not about to sell it on. Not sure what gave me the greatest pleasure at the time...owning George Pepp or 3 days peace and quiet! I still have George Pepp, but sadly the wife is now talking to me again.

    Record in Retention at Post Office??

    Makes perfect sense that they won't talk to you about your package...it's been sent to Coventry. I can almost hear the gentle rustle of the tumbleweed...

    looking for a value on this Fascinators

    Agreed, can't see Pat letting this go for £300...even if the screen shot was from years ago. I got my copy from Dave Truscott around 8 years ago. I has around 1/2 - 1 second of minor cue burn and was in a deal. Suspect that I paid around £1,000 for this as part of the deal. In the current climate even accounting for the fact that it may not be that well known there will be a number of serious collectors who'd be interested. Dependent on vinyl condition I'd estimate somewhere around £1,500 - £1,800 at the lower end of the spectrum. Yes, JM does generally get great prices, but there are a few that sell for less than anticipated. If you attained £2,000 less JM's 20% you'd get £1,600...perhaps you could do better via SS? I'd be surprised if you've not already had PMs from interested parties. Chris

    Otis Lee - hard row to hoe

    Hi Garry, It's Chris Penn here. I got an Otis Lee from you a while back and I put another couple of guys in touch with you who bought copies from you as well. I hope that you are well. Chris

    Otis Lee - hard row to hoe

    Hi, I helped a guy a while back who wanted a copy. I don't have one for sale but a guy I know in the USA had 2 copies recently...one of which he sold to the other guy who I helped. If you are interested let me have your email address and I'll pass it onto the chap in the USA. He doesn't use Soul Source, but he will contact you via email if he can help you with a copy. Just send your email address and I'll pass it on for you. Chris

    THE NORTHERN LINE - Guest DJ GIGSY

    A huge 'Thank You' for your support at last night's Northern Line. The consensus of opinion was that a great night was had by all. Numbers were slightly affected by the Bank Holiday but that didn't dilute the atmosphere or stop the dancers who were out in force from 'early doors'. With no Moz this month, our special guest DJ Mick 'Gigsy' stepped into the breach giving us a 1 1/2 hour set that's rivaled any guest we're ever had. Well chosen tunes that fill the floor from start to finish are virtually guaranteed when Mick's guesting for us and last night was no exception with us being treated to a masterclass in blending in-demanders and stompers. with a few less obvious choices, that all hit the spot with those in attendance. Ben's collection is growing at a terrific pace and every month I'm blown away by the sets he delivers. Ben has taste in music and an uncanny ability to translate the mood of the evening into dancefloor winners in a way that I envy...and I'm especially jealous given that he's less than half my age! Two blinding sets ensued and I was more than a little nervous following Ben as I had the last (and first) spot of the night. Thankfully I succeeded in not making a pig's ear of things and I didn't undo Ben's or Mick's good work. My first hour of the night was generally rarer and more underplayed 45s with my final hour being classics virtually all the way. Once again, thank you for your support and we're delighted that so many of you appeared to have a great night. Hope to see you next month on 22nd September when our special guest is Steve Jones. Chris
  11. Hi Folks, Still chasing a M- copy ideally but a really clean copy would be appreciated even if not quite M-. Can anyone help please? Please contact me via this site, or penn_chris@sky.com Thank you in anticipation. Chris
