  1. Half A Man came out with a different flip on Verve, the value is for the You're Lookin Good side, only on the Utopia label 45, AFAIK.
  2. I don't pretend to be a heavy dealer in soul records but I do try to keep on top of the market, as well as collect on my own, living in the US. Over the past 6 months, give or take, I am surprised at the number of standard, generally available soul records - from someone living in the US -that are getting auctioned by Manship and the other continuously active soul websites. Mary Wells and James Carr for two examples here. These are not rare by any measurement, nor do they have any kind of weird DJ frenzy price hikes (like "Salvation") happening. I'm sure the reason must be that these sites are not getting the heavy records I would have figured to be the typical auction records (Shrine 45s, etc) and in order to keep running consistent auctions, have to offer something. For me, the 'wow' factor is really dying out quickly and I find myself paying less and less attention and more attention to keeping up with stuff for sale here directly (and on Facebook).

  4. This seller has quantity. I believe if you offer $800-$900 they would accept your offer. Will try to get one myself if I get some extra $ https://www.discogs.com/sell/item/477644563
  5. Not that it is of relevance to me here in the US, but I would say that more garage type records (Aquamen, Strangeloves) that are not soul records at all will be brought into the DJ scenes in the UK and Europe. Get ready for more guitars.....

  15. Hello Howard, if you're still around here, could you tell me about the Betty Brewton record on Sue? You and Mel wrote both sides "Heavy Heavy Loving" and "Pershing Square". Was she from Toledo as well? The songs were copyrighted in 1968. I will also send you a message, thanks!
