  • A brief intro...
    Soul Fan & Collector since I was 13 yrs Old, Love Detroit, Chicago, NY, Memphis & New Orleans music. (Just all soul music) Primary Focus is Motown, (bit of a completist) more importantly of recent years the early & pre Motown recordings involving Berry Gordy & Billy Davis (Ro-Gor/ Fidelity etc) including all of the related Jobete recordings on other labels. Difficult to select one favourite Soul Record, the 45 that hooked me on soul was Jackie Wilson's  "Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher" the ultimate Northern has to Be Johnny Sayles with "Can't Get enough" . For Motown it has to be Barbara McNair & "Your Gonna Love My Baby" so much Motown related to choose from, but again Barbara McNair gets me with "It Was Never Like This" on Warner Brothers. Deep soul has to be Tommy Turner with "I'll Be Gone". For a tinge of "Blues" nothing better than Big Maybelle & "Oh Lord What Are You Doing To Me". The R&B masterpiece for me anyway has to Otis Lee "Hard Row To Hoe".  Finally if ever there was a record that stops you in your tracks and brings tears to your eyes Walter Jackson's "Not You" sheer magic. I Could just go on!

  2. One of my favourites! John Manships Guide has it listed at £750, the last one I saw for sale on line was back in 2013 and that fetched just shy of $2000 popsyke is a great web site for tracking record sales & prices including all ebay transactions. Cheers Graham
  3. Came back from 3 weeks in the states in Aug On scouring the usual Old records in NYC stores 3 of the ones I went into had identical copies of this Test Pressing, the writing the colours everything spot on. Its selling for $15 in the states think its a special edition pressing of 200 , not sure. It has the dished centre and the coloured biro looks spot on. Not saying your is not the original. There a number on ebay Best Graham
