    I don't know dude, south of the mason dixon line includes some other pretty heavy states too (Florida for example). Plus, dude didn't even say it's a local release.

    He did say that it was a record of which there are roughly half a dozen known copies, over which the record geek universe will cream itself in short order.

    I say it's Salt....*





    * I suspect his reluctance to say "where" "South of the Mason Dixon" line suggests that the exact location would spill the beans immediately.

    You really need to exploit this in ways other than financial. Be sadistic. You can have a buncha "too cool for school" record dorks eating out of your hand. Most of these people value records records more than their family, friends, or self-esteem. Make them begg - you will never again have an opprotunity like this, my friend! Humiliate them, and then take the money.

    I hear you, but there are more than a few 45s of which only a couple known copies exist.

    Even if it was from NOLA it could still be something like Tabby Thomas or the Explosions "Jockey Ride"

    Oooohhhhh...I forgot about that Explosions....

    BTW: This has to be an April Foll's joke.

    haha. i mean, whatever it is i's nothing i own...and I agree Salt would be the most ridiculous just because it's such a mythical record.



    Actually, you know what? I bet it's the April and the Fools 45 "Jokes on You" on the Soulaughing label. shit is raw!

    I don't even know what this record is and I NEED IT!

  • yoigotbeatsyoigotbeats 1,667 Posts
    the reality is there's at least 50 records I can think of that fit this $1,000 + shroud and none of them would fetch less by knowing 8 more exist.

  • Really?
    I was under the assumption that this is exactly
    what would happen.
    So, the general consensus
    is to ebay one every 2 months or so?
    Oh btw, I am not April Fool-ing.
    The date is purely coincidental.
    I came across these Tuesday.

    Really. 6 newly available copies of a record people will spend $1,000+ on doesn't make kill the market for the record as there are more than 6 people who obviously want/need the record. And if it's of Salt/Dayton Sindwinders calibur I'd bet you could do a dutch auction and get the 6K in 7 days.

    I don't know man, I think the knowledge that the record is now 2x-3x more common than had been previously believed would cause a lot of people to rethink just how badly they wanted it.

    Percentage-wise maybe but when you think of the available supply versus people who are absolutely sure they want it I don't think it's a problem. It's not like he found 20-30 pieces...

    I'm still skeptical, but I won't pretend to be able to get inside the mind of somebody that puts down $1000+ on a 45.

    I agree with faux. People pay for the knowledge that they are one of the very few (i.e. under 10) that have a copy, so when they go to spin at a funk night they can be essentially guaranteed that they're the only one there with the record. Also, it completely depends on what the record is and what the going rate of the first copy is. Let's say it's something like the Hifidelics, which just sold for around $3,000. Yes, the dealer could easily get $1,000 a piece for the next five copies, but I seriously doubt (s)he'll be able to get $3,000 or even $2,500 for the next five because there just aren't that many collectors out there with that type of disposable income. This is especially true for funk 45 collectors who don't have a scene nearly as big as that of northern soul.


  • I don't know man, I think the knowledge that the record is now 2x-3x more common than had been previously believed would cause a lot of people to rethink just how badly they wanted it.'Xactly.
    This is an odd situation to be in. I am all for capitalism, so
    I'm not afraid to say that I want to make loot off this stash.
    However, I don't want to be the guy that killed the value of
    this record, either. What if I sell 3 copies with a caveat
    that the buyer has to keep a lid on it for a while?
    Wait, thats kinda silly.

    This is the sort of gentleman's agreement that breeds eternal inter-board beef. Prepare to be e-stalked for the next five years by the James Troubles of the world if you try this one.

    Actually, I probably agree with yoigotbeats. I don't think the price will come down. If it's really that type of grail, finding 8 is not going to shift things too much. There are enough people who will buy them.

  • So, if you cats think that "8 Isn't Enough",
    then do I need to do the wait-2-months-each-time
    thing on ebay? Why not just slap 'em up one
    after the other?
    Also, does anyone ever actually say on an ebay
    posting that they have multiples, and the exact amount?
    That might actually get the last couple to go through the roof?

    -Discuss.

  • 8 can change the value of a record. Ebay is your worst enemy.

    You mean to tell me you couldn't get Shadow, Wermingler, Keb, Chemist, Trouble & Egon et al to come out their pockets for a G on some shit they would be one of 6 people to have yet another grail (or even an upgrade)???? We're not even talking about like the Andy Smith's (with his recently advance for the Portishead record) and Aaron Fuchs' of the world who drop g's on a whim.

    But for the record, I'd have zero problem spending a G-Unit for a grail where 8 just came onto the scene. It's not like we're talking about something like Latin Breed's Hard to Handle.

    Seriously, trying to pimp the SOUL STRUT BRAIN TRUST without giving up the title is a bitch move.
