Jan Davis, "Watusi Zombie"

Post  FlavorDav on Mon Jul 28, 2008 5:35 pm

Anybody have any idea of what a 45 (VG+) of Jan Davis' "Watusi Zombie" is going for these days? Neither buying nor selling, just spinning and curious, is all. Thanks!

never seen that one on a list, no idea. gotta be a tough one. anything with zombie in the title is always going to stick in peoples collections keeping it off the market.

I've been trying for ages to get the channels earthquake on 45 only for a mate to pick one up at leicester record fair yesterday for a few quid. needless to say he wont part with it.

I haven't noticed any record of a sale, at least online (eBay, GEMM, Popsike), and I've been watching for years now. It's been comped on (at least) both Jungle Exotica (v/a) and Boss Guitar! The Best of Jan Davis. I figure if anyone has any info, someone who might happen upon this forum might. I'm hoping, at any rate. Then again, if there isn't a ready answer, that perhaps says something in and of itself. And as I'm not buying or selling, it doesn't really matter, but ...

it's a killer for sure, I know it from the Jungle Exotica, is the Jan Davis cd worth picking up - anything else good on there?

That I can't tell you, I can't afford CDs (or books, or movies, or videos and/or DVDs, or a haircut, or clothes, or food ...) since going all vintage vinyl ... Sad

It actually found me. And I wasn't even looking. Meanwhile, I believe I found you on Facebook as well. And I STILL owe you a 45 from way back when, though, alas, not Jan Davis ...

I suspect they were asking as a copy came up recently on ebay and went for a pretty decent sum circa $160. I was sadly outbid (I don't get paid till Thursday and I need to pay my rent). Crying or Very sad

Cracking tune though. If anyone wants to sell one at a slightly lower price drop me a PM.

Wow. Thanks, all. I figured it was worth something (as did the friend who found/sold it to me, but in the absence of price info @ the time, he simply made sure it went to a good home), but ...

Well, just curious, is all. Thanks again ...

Such a great track, the sheer swampiness of it is unbeatable.

If you've got a copy count yourselves lucky Wink

wow, just won one on ebay for about what was mentioned above. i threw 175 at it not really expecting to win it (it was a mint copy, with the exception of some crayon on the label). it had almost 500 page views, but only 4 bidders!

weird. it also had the word, WHITE ZOMBIE in the description, and not watusi zombie? so maybe it didnt pop up on many people's watch lists...

either way, happy to track down one of my favorite instrumental tracks ever...

and by the way, the jan davis cd is highly recommended by me...some really great instro's on that comp...

thanks for the heads up Kogar, it has been carefully inserted into my dj box, i'd given up on finding a copy of this.
