While going through my collection of 45 RPM records that I have owned since the mid 1960s I stumbled onto a near mint second copy of a very rare record I just recently sold on ebay for $1381.00 last month. This newly found copy has never been played as far as I know. I will not play test so it can remain near mint.
The record appears to be near mint. I have never played it. Check out the youtube video of my first copy sold in Jan 2019 playing. There is no writing or stains on either side of the label. I'm the first and only owner. I have kept it safe in my possession since 1965. This could be one of the best copies ever offered of this record on ebay it is a very rare find. Check out the pictures and see how shiney it appears.
Artist: Larry Allen
Title: "Can't We Talk It Over " & "Somewhere There Is Paradise"
Label: 1965 Green Dolphin, G&C 115-A and 115-B
Description: Super-rare Northern Soul by Larry Allen on Green Dolphin Records.
I can attest that this is a very rare first pressing of Larry Allen's record. I was a friend of Larry Allen when I was living in Western Pa in the 1960s and he gave me some copies of his record. Let my 100% feedback rating speak for my character. It looks like someone in the UK is creating counterfeit copies of this record. This original first version has Larry Allen spelled out on the label. Based on the snippet below there may only be 100 or less original first press copies of this record in existence.
snippet of information interesting...
Larry Allen was from Greensburg, PA. Jerry Reed, who owned the label, had 1000 copies pressed. 500 as Larry Allen and 500 as L. Allen. It was released in the fall of 1965. Jerry got frustrated because the record didn't sell and at the time he had an old car that he was junking, and he threw around 900 copies of the record into the trunk to be crushed and remelted
