Why is it rare, Tony?

The 1984 poster sleeve is also quite collectible:

Try and find one!
I didn't even know it was rare when I picked it up, and for peanuts.
I posted it into a Facebook collectors group to be told by an authority on these things that it's one of THE rarest solid centres out there.
I didn't even know !
Got it from Japan for £6.23 ( or 32p) including postage !!!!

Yes, the black label poster version is very collectible, the only problem with that is that if you have it, you have to have the non poster version too.

Yeah, I have both of the later one, Tony.

Point taken re: 1975 version. It's not even listed in Discogs. Nice bargain you got. I'm guessing it worth 30 - 60 quid? Am I right?

Lots more I was told, over £200, and I even had an offer for it !!!

It's worth nothing, because it ain't for sale.

Wow! Well done there, mate!

What would you say are the top 5 RCA UK 45 collectibles, 1960 - 1977?

I wouldn't have a clue really, like I said, I wasn't even aware of this one until after I'd got it.
I just wanted the solid label.

Fair enough, Tony. That's a real wildcard, that one.

For what it's worth, based on this thread and a little buying/selling over the years, my take on the top 5, 60 - 77 would be:

5) Your Time Hasn't Come Yet Baby
4) A Little Less Conversation
3) You'll Never Walk Alone
2) There's Always Me
1) GGGOH - Solid orange centre :)

More like 66 - 69 +1 than 60 - 77.

As usual, any debate, additions, subtractions, dissent etc. is very welcome.

There's one British orange label 45 that I don't have , push out or solid, and that's 'Take Good Care Of Her / I Got A Thing About You Baby'.
Whenever I've come across one there's always been writing on the label or it's been more than I've been willing to pay.
We had the oil crisis, power cuts, three day week, strikes etc, and so here in the UK RCA imported the US single, that's the common version here. The UK pressing is a rarity.
The solid 'If I Can Dream' at the start of this thread is a rarity too.

Those 2 should be in the top 5.

Did TGCOH have a UK number? You know, RCA 2***?
