    Junior Mcants - Try Me For Your New Love

    You mean this I assume? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Junior-McCants-Try-Me-For-Your-New-Love-King-45-6106-Northern-Soul-PROMO-HEAR/302740969706?hash=item467cc498ea:g:2CoAAOSwDMNa~JQI It's at $6500 right now with 2 and a half days left. Record is in fairly bad shape with a crack and although the seller says it plays OK on his record player it might not be the case for yours or any place you play it out! Personally, it's not..

    UK Demos Vs Issues Prices???

    Depends how successful a record was I suppose. I mean demos of the Beatles 45s are very desirable even though there were quite a few made but compare that to hundreds of thousands or even millions of the issue copies. I would always prefer a demo Stateside, Tamla-Motown, HMV or whatever as they are things of beauty to my eye.

    Most inappropriate request to a DJ....

    Quite common theses days what with everyone being a 'DJ' - 'Hey, can I have a go on the decks?'

    Dave Godin / Mick Jagger

    From my correspondence with Dave in the early 1980s, I know this is what pissed him off more than anything - the idea that Black artists were only getting their dues after their music was exposed to the wider world by bands like the Stones, Beatles, Animals, Manfred Mann etc etc. But they did have their careers expanded and extended in a lot of cases and were aware of it too - as Muddy Waters famous 'he stole my music but he gave me ..

    Dave Godin / Mick Jagger

    That's Roger Eagle who confirmed that he did indeed do that, although he also said he got on well with the Stones personally.

    Dave Godin / Mick Jagger

    I've only ever read Jagger talking about people like Alexis Korner as major influences, although Godin certainly helped them get hold of the stuff that they covered evidenced by a letter to Godin from Brian Jones where Jones sends a tape reel as Godin had offered to record some Jimmy Reed tracks for them - which he would have hardly done if he was outraged by their ripping off Black artists.

    Possibly THE Rarest Soul 45?

    Yes, and what are the predetermined dimensions and weights that he's supposed to be measuring? I mean are there internationally agreed units for SOUL demos?

    Possibly THE Rarest Soul 45?

    No, he played it fairly regularly and at both major and minor venues too.

    Possibly THE Rarest Soul 45?

    I thought that too - I doubt it is really mint minus which I regard as only a few plays. He forgot to mention WOL too!

    Possibly THE Rarest Soul 45?

    His wife? I tried that once: 'Darling, I got you this record for your birthday. I know you don't collect records but if you don't want it, I guess I'll take it off your hands!' Next stop A&E...

    If it IS a counterfeit, it's not exactly wise to spend a lot of time and trouble producing one which will come under extremely close scrutiny by people with a hell of a lot of expertise on the matter.
