  • Am I numpty...

    ...in this instance? 'Cos I wasn't sure of the price but I have a feeling I should be kicking myself hard and repeatedly for umming and aahing. And then missing this.

    You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.

    Oooooh - I'd say " a bit of a numpty "

    Not sure of the going rate - but that seems pretty cheap to me. Even if you don't like the vocals, it's a good one to trade on...

          Goddamn!

          Would've bought it in a flash if I wasn't currently barred from ebay cos I owe them £100!

          Fucking grade A bargain, unless this is the first of a recent haul of them from somewhere... which judging from the dude's other auctions, it isn't. Someone had a good day today.

                    Well, I thought the copy on Gerald's list had come via Jason but there's now two copies of Wanda Davis up for sale. So you have two chances to own the OG Greg. Time to find out the answer to my original question...

                    The one that got away.

                      That's Jay Stirland selling the copy he won on the original auction you missed, Rich. It's battered, by all accounts.

                      Still, I might go for it if the sound of bacon frying noise really does drown out the vocal as Jason says.

                      Where's the second copy, Rich - Gerald's sold his one, yes, for £800. I know - unbelievable.

                        That's sold already? That was the second I was thinking of. Grief! Still, the way that that popped up immediately after I missed this one on the 'Bay, I assumed that Gerald had obtained it from Jay (and I was kicking myself that it graded VG++). There must be loads of them around...

                          One thing that's guaranteed is it's a rare record.

                          If I'ld have been the label owner and presented with that embarrassing performance, I'ld have kept the pressing run low too. .

                            something tells me that you're not that keen on the lady's voice Greg - am I right ?

                            I can read between the line y'know...


                            What has she ever done to you anyway - did a nasty babysitter have a similar vocal style and left you mentally scarred or something....it's a real fly in the ointment for you aint it !


                            I think it's funny

                              I think her voice is funny too. .

                              Not really a fly in anybody's ointment really - but I'm totally flumoxed as to how anybody can actually like this rekkid as it is, let alone hold it up as a playoutable funk record. And then pay £800 for it.

                              The better records of sister funk, funk funk or whatever else you want to call it, should be championed way before anything like this. For somebody wanting to get into funk for the first time, gimme Little Jimmy Edward over Ms Davis any day of the week........... .
