    It's fantastic on vinyl. Have a read of this. They recorded everything on to 2 inch tape before transferring to Pro Tools. Used full orchestras. It was mastered from tape by Bob Ludwig. Spent over a million dollars making it.

    Depends on what type of music one likes and what one considers a bargain. I have purchased several first pressing pink Capricorn label Ex condition copies of the Allman Brothers legendary 2LP Fillmore East album for less than $20 without too much effort of the hunt which I consider a bargain for such a legendary album but others may think that expensive.

    Also if a collector is willing to accept vinyl with a worn cover but the vinyl is in great condition there are many bargains to be had. Can't tell you the number of Lp's I have purchased on the cheap where the cover was worn but the vinyl in great shape for less than $10.

    Yep, I don't mind a little ringwear if I can get a great-sounding early pressing for <$6 or so.

    The Stooges, MC5, and Ramones reissues from Rhino are a great value, imo.

    A used copy Gerry Rafferty - City To City is dirt cheap.

    Ok, this might be a bit esoteric, but I listened to my copy of Grisman & Grapelli Live last night, which is an amazing recording and fabulous pressing and has been out of print since 1994, and hasn't been printed on vinyl since 1981 (!!!) and looked it up on Discogs and, well, you can get a mint "Artisan" copy for $8. Unbelieveable!
