I love him...

Ella Brown's "Love Don't Love Nobody" continues to be one of the most heavily viewed postings on this site. I don't exactly know why that is, but I hope it means there are a lot of Ella Brown fans about.

Here's another gorgeous tune by that fine lady. Much much rarer than "Love Don't Love Nobody", in fact, this is the only copy of the 45 I've ever seen in the "flesh". It definitely would've made my 'white whale' list last year, but I felt I could only choose one of Brown's two releases on Adams.

Many thanks to the Ebay Guru for taking care of business. Down to the last minute I was still dreaming about getting the record for $20 because the silly thing has been sitting for days at $10. The Guru was like, "don't be an idiot".

And sure enough, exactly as he predicted, the price jumped considerably in the last five seconds of the auction. If I had followed his suggestion, we would have won with less than $2 to spare. As it was, I made him throw in an extra $10, just to make sure.

Hope ya'll enjoy......


  1. Nice one....Thanks Ana !

  2. I wondered if you were bidding. I was in there until the end. Dangnabbit! At least I know it's gone to a good home.

  3. Darcy...ugh

    I was afraid that was the case. I'm really sorry. But ya know, I wasn't going to let it get away if I could help it....that's why I asked for help. Left to my own devices I probably would have bid $24.

  4. Sounds like a great copy, I assume you didn't decrackle the mp3.

    Lost out three times now in recent weeks - Ella, then Betty Harris, and now Margie Joseph. :(

  5. Darcy...I never de-crackle. Not to rub it in, but the 45 looks VG, plays much much better. I was lucky.

    Drop me a line. I might be able to help with the Betty Harris. If not at this very minute, then at some point. I love hooking people up.

    Oh, btw....Words of Wisdom from the Ebay Guru. The best time to hunt online is between Christmas and mid February [tax day in the US]. I tried it last year and even I won more than was good for my budget.

  6. my pleasure hon. ana speaks the truth about auctions after christmas.
