  1. Hi I have just listed another batch of mid-price Northern Soul singles on Ebay: Check them out here: The Wonderettes and full list of items for sale here: Full list. Thanks.
  2. Hi Just wanted to bring to your attention I am selling an unknown Northern Soul / Girl Group Unknown Acetate on Ebay right now that might be of interest to some of you + some other singles. Here is the link: Unknown Northern Soul / Girl Group Acetate. Youtube clip: Youtube clip. Thanks. Jim
  3. Not a problem, not sure yet what platform it will be sold on, JM, Ebay or other....? but will keep you informed.
  4. The sound snippets are still available through my Youtube channel named: modboy 1 :
  5. I was the one who organised the auction and was there for the whole day. It was an interesting day. I met JM and will be in touch with him as there are more to come from the same library..... Thanks for everyone attending and for the nice comments above.
  6. Yes that’s me, I still have tend of thousands of records from that library and still selling them on Ebay, not just Northern Soul, but Psych, Mod, Prog, Rock etc... You are the guy that bought the Mike Batt Acetate from me, why would you owe me money?
  7. Agreed, the top end items just seem to get more expensive with time (as is the case with many other genres), but the lower end items which presumably many collectors already have, seem to go cheaper.
  8. Don’t forget all these prices will not include the extra 20% or so commission (17% Auction House commission + VAT on the commission). So the Tommy Dent for example would have actually cost the buyer £3480.00 !!! and the Lainie Hill would have been £600.00 and so on...
  9. Just a last reminder, the Wessex Auctions Northern Soul auction is happening tomorrow from mid day. On line bidding and full catalogue available here: Full catalogue. Good luck if bidding.
  10. Two more days to the Wessex Auctions Northern Soul sale, with many Mint Northern Soul rarities and many unique Unreleased Northern Soul Acetates. Full catalogue here: Wessex Auctions Northern Soul Auction full catalogue.
  11. Yes, Bo Diddley, just trying to make clear that the VAT is not on the full amount of the item, but just on the auction house commission.
  12. Once again Bo Diddley and Merve, Wessex Auctions commission if leaving a phone bid or bidding on the phone pr bidding live at the auction house, is only 17% + VAT on this commission charge only, not on the final price of the item !!!, just to make it clearer on a £100.00 item you will pay around £120.00 at Wessex Auctions, while if bidding on the saleroom it will be nearer to £130.00. And if bidding on The-Salesroom there is an addition charge.
  13. OK, here is the breakdown, if bidding through "the-salesroom" there is an addition of 4.95% on top of the auction house commission of 17%, which could be a lot on high end items, I always prefer to either bid live on the phone, or leave my top bid with the auction house, when you ring them to leave a bid with them they take your details and register you as buyer. Wessex Auctions charge the lowest commission of any auction house in the UK at 17%, and on most other auction houses it is normally 25%-30% (and higher at Christies or Sotheby’s), Omega Auctions charges 33.6% on items, nearly double that of Wessex Auctions !!! Regarding postage, I would ring the auction house for a quote, it will probably be cheap for 1 single and will go up depending on size and weight. Their packing is great as I bought records from them before. I hope this answers all the questions above.
  14. That percentage is for Omega Auction which is much higher then the Wessex Auction Room Northern Soul auction. The percentage for the Wessex auction is 17.5 %, or you can always phone and leave bids with the auction house to save some money (it is slightly higher if bidding through the-salesroom website.
