FAKE SALES !!! Its value being in a new condition would be 30-35 pounds max.
These false sales are the culprits that true lovers of music and not money can not buy vinyl at a reasonable price.

I believe people could pay up to that amount if they want the tune badly enough. I bought a particular tune a while back at a stupid price and Now it's dropped to half if what I paid. Suppose it's the gamble you take if you want it badly enough. Can also work the other way round, price can go up instead. Just depends whose selling it at the time, you could literally pay £15 for a tune one month then all the copies go and there's only an expensive one left , until a reasonable seller starts the cycle all over again at a cheaper price. I have noticed that White lightning tune has disappeared then reappeared a few times, not sure if it's a time waster buying it each time or the seller trying to catch people's attention.
Anyhow, back in the subject. I've bought this tune before & £100 or so for a VG+, although sounds very overpriced, would be the equivalent of what I.paid for my battered copy. It's a sellers market ATM and literally luck of the draw on what kind of copy and price you get. If you're willing to spend a lot of time on here searching and waiting for your perfect copy then you'll get it but most people have lives to live so some will settle for what's about then & there, rather than wait

Fake sales?

Buying there own records paying fees just to try to it it to appear in the sales history, which btw aint always guaranteed to show

And if that were the case sure then you'd get far people fake selling to get the price to drop, which is far more feasible

Side B Samples are taken from (The Wizard And The Prince - The Wiz Is A Genius) awesome, both sides are great, but i actually prefer the B side. I know its classed as jungle and came out 93 when it started to move away from ravey core elements, but i feel this still retains a good ravey sound and would of suited 1992 easily, also the backing breaks i notice are similar to the horn track. well worth having, can only imagine this going up and up in value. at least i got there first in i'd ing it as sampling - The Wizard And The Prince.

I just have to shout this record out... this is my favourite release on a label with many other classic releases. A classic among classics if you will, and one of my favourite jungle tunes of all time. Tell Me is a tearout darkside jungle tune of the highest order. Very simple, must be like 8 tracks in the mix and no more. It feels like it could have been made in a day or so as almost everything is sampled straight from other tunes, but the drop is just devastating and everything fits together like a glove. Brilliant. Alone In The Dark is a solid b-side too. Respect to Torchman and Pascal.
