And re: record prices reflecting "what the market will bear/people are willing to pay." A buddy of mine went to a local record store (not Half Price) and picked up a used copy of Zeppelin IV for like $12. He got to talking with the owner, who basically said that a lot of dealers price this stuff as if it's a rarity. But LZIV and other albums like it were pressed and sold like hotcakes, racking up millions in sales over the years before you even factor in the CD/reissue era. They might seem scarce just because people grab them up in an instant if they're in the bin. But they're not by any means rare, and that's how he prices them. EDIT/addition: I recognize it might be different for a place where rent is through the roof. It's obviously not just down to making all those classic rock albums seem like super rarities just to make a buck.
