    Wait…is the cost that high because it’s actual gold? I’ve got a black vinyl edition sitting in a box under the stairs that’s doing nothing, and it cost me about £10.

    $150 for a sealed copy of Alice In Chains self-titled LP. Broke the seal and gave it a spin as soon as I got it.

    Elton John MFSL vinyl Yellow Brick Road, $125 a couple years ago and worth every penny. Paid about the same for Breakfast In America MFSL on vinyl as well, another great sounding album!

    I paid $40 in the last year for Le Tigre's eponymous album from the original Mr. Lady label. One of my favorite album's of all time and I had never seen an original pressing before.

    Check out the songs "Phanta"() and "Les and Ray"(Le Tigre - Les and Ray ).

    That`s interesting, I am also in the UK and it`s the only early Rod Stewart album that I am unable to find, after I unwisely got rid of my original copy years ago, you would think that as one of the biggest selling albums of the period there would be copies in every charity shop...but no.

    Please can you upload some photos? I've never seen a legit original 1994 Warner Bros CD of Monster.

    Once I find the keys to the UV glass display cabinet I keep it in, and get a new set of the ph-neutral handling gloves, I'll be glad to.

    $200 for the Classic Records 4 LP, single sided, 45 RP version of the first Crosby, Stills & Nash album, aka the "couch" record
  17. john lennonist

    john lennonist There ONCE was a NOTE, PURE and EASY...

    LP -- $130.00 or so for a NM– First UK Pressing of Black Sabbath "Paranoid"

    ... also several NM or NM– Beatles Japanese Red Wax Mono LPs set me back somewhere in the $75.00 – $100.00 range
    ... and about $80.00 for my long-time Holy Grail LP, a UK First Press "Something Else by the Kinks" Mono LP (not in the greatest condition, but still an enjoyable listen)

    45's -- several in the $30.00 – $45.00 range... mostly Beatles or rare British Invasion or rare Blues or rare R&B.

    Digital -- I have about five SHM-SACD's which set me back about $50.00 – $70.00.

    Luckily I was hip to MFSL and DCC Gold CD's and LP's when they first came out, so I have a bunch of them but didn't pay too much for 'em (though I did do a trade with a member here which we valued at $60.00 so I could land his DCC Cream "Wheels of Fire" CD).

    My most Valuable Item -- not really sure, but most valuable to me are my NM DCC Jethro Tull "Aqualung" LP (autographed to me by Ian Anderson) and my NM Rhino Doors "Strange Days" LP (autographed to me by Robby Krieger -- a truly nice, cool guy!)

    I'm always on the hunt for an authenticated John Lennon autograph... that would instantly become my most valuable item as far as I'm concerned.

    Some of the mixes look pretty nice! I'm sure you get much joy from the acapella version.

    Sleeve is VG, record is G. That's a £1 or £2 charity shop record in my book.*

    *But I'm not really a record collector, so I'm not clued up on rarity.
