  1. About 7/8 years ago i gave a load of re-issues and boots away to a local charity shop, Does that count, now that i have seen what they can fetch on EvilBay.
  2. i was thinking that some of the records were a bit cheap for a JM's auction. I thought that Wombat, Navarro and the Bell Boys might have made £500, going by how JM's auctions usually go. for a change i could have probably predicted these prices.
  3. As i said, although i don't DJ very often i am probably better known for playing oldies, i don't have many rare or expensive records but i am a bit of a collector and tend to pick up a lot of stuff i like (when i have a bit of spare cash) this includes modern and crossover that i couldn't play at my usual oldies nites, but i rarely get asked to do anything other than oldies.
  4. Although i usually now only do "oldies" nights at my local Miners Club ( quite a few of my playlists are listed on SS), i have occasionally been asked to other ATB venues, The last time i had an early spot and a later spot, Starting the early spot (lasted 1 and a half hours, i was only meant to be on 30 mins) i announced that i was going to play modern, crossover and some that they might not know, one of the resident dj's said that i didn't have any of these. Boy did i prove him wrong. A DJ normally only plays what the promoter wants them to, but give them a chance and they might surprise you.
  5. Just how many records could you say the same thing about? If it was northern soul back then, it is still northern soul now.
  6. Whatever takes my fancy, because there is normally nobody else there to hear it.
  7. Very seldom play records at home, i have down-loaded about a 1/4 off my collection to my pc and despite my intentions i can't seem to find the time to download the rest. Any new record that i buy is listened to and down-loaded at the same time then put away in one off my cases.

Lulu – Stop Fooling Around – UK Decca M- £50 Very Indemand RnB Mod style Dancer B side of a non chart record from 1966 always been hard to track down - now massive in Europe picking up spins here. LISTEN!! i've been playing this out for a few years now, great track. somebody needs to buy this and get it played.
  10. I don't think that there is a con, as long as you have the required knowledge in the subject (this is now so easy to acquire through the internet) but i do think that a lot of people now see a record that they like/want and decide that they must have it at any cost (you see this every day on ebay). I agree with many on here that collecting is a hobby and it is up to yourself what you want to spend on it and i have probably done the same (just don't tell the wife. Now where have i heard that that before.) But like i say the information is out there, all you have to do is check or shop around there are many good dealers out there that won't try to con you. ( I will agree with others in this thread that Pete S is one of the good guys)
