The Remains on Epic
The Remains on EpicI'm not saying I see it around or anything, but is it that much more rare than other major label garage LPs with a hit or two? Is this not something you could get for under $100 if you really wanted to?
Wasn't the Frank Wilson only an acetate?I was under the impression any "real" pressings of itcame after the acetate had been played on the NS sceneand blew up, creating demand for it ... ?
First found by Motown researcher and historian Tom Dieperro while working for the label in the 70's, the disc was in unplayed condition when he received it as research material from the company for some future project, as such the record was put aside, that was until famous (infamous) Record dealer and producer Simon Soussan met up with Tom, Both having a love of Detroit soul Tom gave a stack of obscure 45,s for Simon to listen to, well Simon was Blown away by "Do i love you" and in no time it was covered up as Eddie foster and acetates were soon winging their way to UK DJ's...well the rest is well known, it went massive becoming a Northern classic. the real identity only becoming know in 1978 when Simon sold his collection, Question did Tom ever give Simon the record or is it still on loan ??????So how did Kenny Burrell get it ?Simon sold his collection to Les McCutcheon (Shakatak etc) including the Frank Wilson, at first when it became know what had happened and the news filtered through the scene it seems that the fact Les was not in the inclowd the discovery was somehow ignored or given short shrift (nothings changed there then) anyway for unclear reasons Les sold the 45 toJonathan Woodcliffe a Notts DJ quite well known in his day, I think he has something going on in the Southport scene today, Nothing is known about the time Jonathan owned the disk, he sold the record to Kev Roberts who owned the record for 11 years until he sold it to his business partner Tim Brown for ??5000 a then world record.....but not for long...enter stage left Mr. Kenny Burrell clutching his ??15,000

I was under the impression that the one that sold for 15,000UKP was one of only a few issue copies (the bulk having been destroyed).
The Remains on EpicI'm not saying I see it around or anything, but is it that much more rare than other major label garage LPs with a hit or two? Is this not something you could get for under $100 if you really wanted to? I've seen 3 copies in the last 5 years. 2 were trashed andthe sellers wanted over $100 ... the other was clean and $300.I live in Boston, where - outside of maybe NYC - it would be mostcommon, and you just don't ever see it. I think it's a hell of a lotmore rare than most other major label garage LP's.
There's that 45 Stax did to commemorate a certain DJ or whatever... I forget the artist/title but I think it was an instrumental done as a minute pressing that was given away or something.They also had that promo-only "Stay in School" comp LP which was supposedly limited to 200 (hard to believe the pressing is that tiny - especially since I've handled one - but considering the loot it goes for...)
