LOL ok thank you...guess isn't special
You just never know until you check. I've been surprised before (in both directions lol)
Nothing crazy for me- the verve voyager 1 is the most valuable vinyl i’ve got, worth about $200. after that, the next most valuable things i’ve got are the Black Sabbath shm-sacds from Japan- they’re around $100 each.
Thanks for making mine - great to get some Kozelek on vinyl from back when he was good!
Im sure I have some, just never give it a thought to price them.
Between all of the official, archival releases I have--which is all of them, plus all of the bootlegs I have, plus the equal amount of Zappa I have, plus the literally thousands of other artists I also collect, I don't know the vast majority of the live stuff well enough to be able to peg particular performances of tunes. I know there are versions of tunes that are just amazing and pretty unique compared to other versions, but I usually can't specify them--I frequently hear stuff while listening on shuffle where I haven't the faintest idea what show it might be from. But I kind of enjoy that. It keeps everything fresh. However, I can see where one might want to have a better handle on what's in one's collection.
Sealed Original ZIPPO pressing of Catch A Fire, seen them go as high as $750. Paid $300 for it 14 years ago.
Chris Robinson Brotherhood - Betty's Blends Vol. 1 (4LP)
Iron Maiden - The Soundhouse Tapes (7 inch)
Some John Frusciante/Ataxia albums I have (Curtains, AW1, AW2, To Record Only Water for Ten Days, The Empyrean, Niandra Lades (limited edition)) seem to be worth £100-£150 each now; I bought them new.
Second mono pressing of Introducing the Beatles.
I have a few sealed MOFI and Classic Records LPs. But I think my best item is an original Tom Petty - Wildflower LP, Minty Fresh..
A downward trajectory in income also required that I be more selective...
I have one of those too. It's a 4 x 10-inch set house in a nice clothbound book. I remember at some point after they had sold out (maybe 6 months to a year) SW posted on his site that he had cleaned out a storage closet and had found a handful of extra copies of the Insurgentes 4LP set and would sell signed/personalized copies at the original retail price to the first people who responded, so I jumped on that opportunity!
Holy sh|t! I had no idea someone had pressed Niandra Lades... Brilliant record. Just ordered a copy, thanks for the heads-up! Now if only someone would reissue Shadows Collide With People.
I have no idea as the weight: its not mentioned anywhere that i can see. It comes with posters, a huge booklet etc and a blue vinyl single. I hardly play it; i always stick on the cd.
AFI - Sing the Sorrow 2LP (red) (sealed) (about $200)
I have a UK Decca original pressing of Leaf Hound's 'Growers of Mushroom' in near-mint condition. It set me back £1600 a few years ago, but I feel considerably better about it now knowing that it would command in excess of £4000 these days.
XTC - Wrapped in Grey (single cd withdrawn before release) € 250 !!
Not sure where you are getting your information from but "Ghosts Of The Great Highway" was never ever going for $500. Not even the limited version on marbled vinyl. Yeah... there's somebody asking £500 for it on Discogs right now. But good luck finding a willing customer.
I own first pressings of a couple of Brit folk rock gems, which apparently have become somewhat "desirable":
Trees - On The Shore
Lal & Mike Waterson – Bright Phoebus
Beatles- Please Please Me (2nd pressing)
Monkees- Changes Original
Elvis Presley- debut Canadian and a US copy
John Lennon’s experimental albums
Plus more I can’t think of
Spiritualized - Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space
Nothing reaching three figures.
Some above average:
- several 35DP japanese cds by Miles Davis, including KOB and IASW.
- a few vinyl bootlegs by The Beatles from the eighties. Also the german Apple MMT vinyl (same matrix than the famous Horzu)
- a couple of gold DCC cds
- japan for Europe Pink Floyd cds of WYWH and DSOTM
So nothing as valuable as most seen here...
What is hot cut pressing
