Simon Soussan

Rare Motown & Soul Price Guide / 1994 Motown/Northern Soul guide

Souvenir : 1994 (Book)

RARE CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS

The legendary 1994 Simon Soussan Rare Motown & Soul Price Guide.

It is unclear how many of this book were printed, what we do know is it was over subscribed and many collectors who ordered a copy didn't ever get one. I know that because I was one of the disappointed.

Disappointed because it was the first guide of it's kind and Simon Soussan was already a legend in his own time. He diligently packed in an extraordinary 700+ label scan of rare Motown and associated 45's plus over 100 rare Northern Soul label scans. It may seem primitive in it's presentation by today book standard, but it simmers with NS history on ever paper.

Picture of Simon himself, a bio etc. which in itself is a must read & see.

Today this very limited run guide is really rare, most have fallen into disrepair from years of thumbing referencing. The binding is not the best ad most al copies have lost pages over the years.
Although this copy has a few loose pages at the very front. All pages are intact and clean.

a RARE and very important historical Northern Soul artifact, written by a naughty boy who became a legend of the Northern Soul scene.

Condition Report

Nice clean, all pages present, no writing or notes written within. Bottom and edge face of spine has a light storage wear (see images). Otherwise it is in remarkable condition, in fact miraculous considering the dire state of the couple of other copies I've seen over the years.

Philco Ford - Hip Pocket Record Player / Compete with 5 Discs - original box

Philco Ford

Hip Pocket Record Player / Compete with 5 Discs

Philco: Hip Pocket (Book)

Before the Sony Walkman there was the Hip-Pocket Record player circa 1967. Big businesses attempt at making vinyl portable and affordable for 50 Million kids of America (so the advertising says)
Philco-Ford invented the battery operated record player you could carry in one hand or even slip into your coat pocket and slip the records into your back-pocket. You can sit on them as the are virtually indescribable according to the launch advertising at the time . These tiny 3.7/8th inch records for the mini-turntable were available in Woolworth and other department stores. With a deal struck with Atlantic, Mercury, Roulette & Apple to ensure top hits were available for this revolutionary invention, all the records came in a card-backed special picture sleeve. These are highly collectable with the Beatles "Apple" releases achieving 3 figure sums at auction.

Here is that VERY RARE record player in it's original Philco Box with 5 records, 4 of them STILL UNOPENED in there picture covers.
1. Etta James - Tell Mama 2. Otis Redding - Shake / Fa Fa Fa 3. Brenton Wood - Gimme A Little Sign 4. Isley Brothers - Twist And Shout 5. Jay & The Techniques - Apple Peaches Pumpkin Pie

This idea soon fell by the wayside as mini cassettes and later the "Walkman" stole the market. Today these more than cute discs, enjoy a cult following, and the record players still working are so rare we have never had another example.

Historically important, a real party piece, a jaw-dropping conversation starter as most of the planet have never see one in operation.

A rare, fun toy for the vinyl-head

Condition Report

Box has a rip at the opening see image. Player is clean, still has the original stylus and with new batteries works fine. 4 of the mini disc are still sealed, The Isley Brothers was opened for the photo shot and is Mint.

Arguably the most collectable Record Player ever made.

Super-rare and sought after, this space age stereo unit was launched in 1973 by U.S. electronics company Weltron. Model 2005 was part of a range entitled “The New Shape of Sound”, inspired by the moon landings and Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Weltron was based in Durham, North Carolina. In other countries they re-badged their products and distributed through well-known brands for that region. In Singapore under the Setron brand, the UK under the Prinzsound brand, in Canada the Fleetwood brand, and in Australia the GEC brand.

A listing in Billboard 26 May 1973, prices the product new at “under $300”, approximately $1650 at today’s values. See magazine cutting photo.

Housed in a flying-saucer shaped white ABS plastic casing, the unit comprises:
- 45/33/78 rpm auto record-changing BSR turntable in good working order
- FM/AM radio in good working order with green and blue psychedelic circular console light
- 8-track cassette player (untested)
- Internal stereo speakers in good working order

Unit measures approx 23”/58cm in diameter and 10”/23cm in height. Weight approx 13kg.
