  2. It's a winner from the nascence of its first umbilical chord Which neatly takes us back to my earlier post - if you want to avoid low-flying snipes, come and visit the JM auction Night all xx
  3. I'm looking for a Mighty Plovers if you've got one up your sleeve?
  4. Funny you should say that Rod my sweet, but I've been sneakily running a tricksy sale of primary foot soldiers of the Dark Lords' armies on the side for the last few years. It's become a fantastic orction
  5. For the benefit of Mr Phillips, and anyone else who doesn't comprehend a true auction format John's auction has run the same way for 20 years, and the instructions are here on his site for everyone to see, in the handily named "How the Vinyl Auction Works" section It does not run like an eBay auction, but is fully automated and works like a real auction house.

  7. You definitely won't get me, as I don't work for John, but there are 8 lovely ladies and gents manning the phones, who can answer queries and check stock for you in real time, and of course John himself will often answer, especially on auction days. I've messaged Simon (Zanetti) about his query, so hopefully all sorted Best ways to get in touch - call +44 (0)1664 464991, or email sales@raresoulman.co.uk. Thank you!

  12. June 2008 simple explanation from Manship to Jerry Hipkiss # 13 Manship explaining the Rouser press was taken off a rejected Fairmount masterplate fully 8 years ago
  13. And poor old Donald died never having the slightest idea that he was a northern soul icon of the highest order All hail to Bob A for finding his brother a few years back and cataloguing a little of their history.
  14. The band were not based in Chicago, they were from St Louis, and had been performing together on and off for years, in St Louis. The band travelled to Chicago with E. Rodney Jones to record SBMB, the amazing Donald Lloyd sang the lead vocal, and they came home again.
