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.
