It was back in February that I reported on a very rare Mexican 7” single for Ennio Morricone’s The Good, the Bad and the Ugly EP. The single (in auction) finally ended up selling for £348.28. Just recently I also noticed another 7” promo single from Mexico (A Fistful of Dollars), another that I had never seen before. The bidding finally ended yesterday (after 42 bids) and another staggering final price of £286.90!
It seems that there is no limit when it comes to Morricone’s rare Dollar pressings. That iconic imagery of Eastwood as the man with no name continues to draw serious interest. I suggest our Mexican readership should be checking out their lofts and basements– pronto!
On the negative side, there have also been a small number of reports that there are some fake singles seeping out of Mexico, especially on James Bond related singles, complete with colour photo copied sleeves and labels. With all such purchases, always try to be vigilant and take as many precautions as possible in researching the product.
