        Great thread!

        Ron Keith "Gotta Go By What You Tell Me" is a toughie to get.

        Midnight "Keep On Walking By" is hard, but coming down in price I think?

        There's all the obvious rare northern UK bits & bobs, Tony Middleton. Alexander Patton, the Rufus Lumley that Manship has up for Auction......

        Where are we drawing the line?

        If we include psych/freakbeat theres loads & loads

        *EDIT*

        When you said Gaturs on Atlantic is that Cold Bear? I didn't think that was really hard to get?

        What about Troublemaker by John Cameron, Solar Level by Johnny Almond and Original Peter by Mike Westbrook?

            I've got the Bobby McClure, great record.

            Yeah. the Midnight was a Eurovision thingy. Keep On Walking By is on the 'B'.

            Ron Keith is another B side on UK A&M. The US is a lot easier to get. It's a modern tune, very nice indeed, not that I have one

            Ian Jackson got his 'To The Ends Of The Earth' for 25p! I think he knocked the bloke down from 50p. Actually I never asked him about that so perhaps I am exagerating. I know it was super cheap though.

                    I know a guy with a near full set of UK Motown demo's, he used to pick them up from record fairs for next to nothing.

                    Speaking to a lot of the old northern soulies I know I think the love of UK pressings is because they made up a large part of the Wheel/Catacombs playlist and UK issues were what they bought when they first started collecting.

                    I think the whole northern price bubble has 10 years left in it max.

                    Wait until they all starting keeling (Keele-ing?) over at niters or selling them off to fund their retirement.

                    They'll be a flood of stuff that is not rare but is out of circulation.

                        Good thread indeed. I love UK 7"s.

                        I think some soul collectors have turned to UK release 70s stuff because with that you have at least got a chance of turning things up at a reasonable price through general second hand sellers. Unlike the US stuff, particularly sixties, where you have to pay specialist dealer money to find anything reasonable nowadays. (It's certainly true in my case). Also, people have woken up in recent years to UK only releases (eg Glen Miller, Bobby McClure, Billy Cole, Ted Ford, Moon Williams, etc).

                        The 60s UK releases collecting is very much an old school wheel-era type of thing.  

                        The Salena Jones does exist apparently (although i have never seen one).

                        "Funky Broadway" by Glen Miller has got "Where is the Love" on the other side, right? Doctor Bird was a UK label - I've never heard of a Jamaican release.

                        As Hayd says, there's loads.

                        One that has proved very elusive for me:

                        Gladys Knight, "No one Could Love You More"

                        And one which loads of people seem to be after now:

                        Pioneers, "My Good Friend James".

                          Like that list at the top, mainly cause I had 4 of them.
                          I bloody well hope 'It's A Funky Thing' isn't rare as I popped out its middle   - it's the b-side of the 2nd UK issue of 'Memphis Underground' .

                          Only Cold Bear had a UK issue by the Gaturs (on Atlantic anyway)

                          One of my faves is 'If I Could Only Be Sure' on UK Probe, and I love my UK demo of 'I Believe In Miracles' it just looks great!

                          I think anyone starting out buying old soul and funk in the 80s would probably have bought a lot of UK issues, I used to love collecting it. I know John Stapleton has some pretty amazing UK issues.

                          As for Ian Jackson's story, seemingly it's true, a friend of mine was with him. I think that was nearly 20 years ago now!

                            I saw an "I believe in Miracles" on Contempo 7" the other week as I was nosing through someone's record box. What's that about? (I'm guessing a boot from the 80s rare groove era??)

                              I saw that Salena Jones 45 on Ebay once - it was Dutch in a picture sleeve, although you'd assume it came out here. Although I've never seen or heard of one.

                              One of my favourite UK labels issuing US stuff is Action - so many great records - Five Miles Out, Backyard Heavies, Eddie Bo, Singing Principal etc.
