    Is that The Singles File? I bought a copy last year for £95 and it’s excellent

  6. Nice records! Just out of curiosity, is your Neil Harvest WLP a German copy? I'm not aware of any white label promos from any other countries. For example, the US promos are stock copies with the pink Warner promo stickers.

    The colored versions are numbered and more rare. however i think most are orange colored. The gold/yellow are even more rare. and that's the color i really wanted.

    That was then when i was a hardcore bootlegger. I don't really care anymore.

    Thanks for the heads up! You are right. It is a standard label U.S. copy. I feel embarassed to have posted it as a white label, even though it is a promotional copy. I need to post a picture of it soon.

    Discogs states my median highest LP is Pink Floyd - The Division Bell on blue vinyl at $110 (paid $20). But I think I can get more than that for my Dead Kennedys - Frankenchrist with Giger poster (paid $15).

    Black Sabbath - Vol 4 (Vertigo Swirl, UK)
    Khan - Space Shanty (Metronome, Germany)
    Caravan - In A Land Of Grey And Pink (2nd pressing, UK)
    Serge Gainsbourg - Histoire De Melody Nelson (2nd pressing, France)
    Gotic - Escenes (Movieplay, Spain)
    some others, like Egg, Banco del Mutuo Soccorso, etc.

    Biggest steal:
    England - Garden Shed (Arista, UK) - $35.

    Ah, okay. I don't remember it being good enough to warrant that price! That's why it's under the stairs with my other Floyd boots.

    Well, "The Singles File" collected - then - current reissues of the singles and not always used the correct master but it's a lovely set.

    How are the bonus discs in the Japanese version? Are they also dedicated Japanese pressings or did they throw in European vinyl? A friend has the UK box and it's fantastic. But since I already have multiple pressings of Bush's albums plus "The Singles File", I couldn't justify buying this set too. But for $150 it would definitely be a no-brainer. Especially as Jp edition:righton:

    That said: An updated "Singles File" - not necessarily as 7" box - is loooooong overdue. But then again: There aren't even current pressings of most Bush albums so why should she reissue the rarities? :help:

    Probably the Scratch My Back boxset by PG. I think it was around 250/300 euros?

    Besides that I've also got the Beatles stereo vinyl box, probably also around 300.

    There’s quite a bit of space left in the Singles File box so I added my French release of the Suspended in Gaffa 7”. That should have been the follow up to SIML imo.

    I paid $45 each for a couple of the Blue Note Disk Union DBLP series Japan mono pressings.
    I paid a similar amount (with shipping) for several of the Music Matters 33 series.
    I think I paid around $50 for my Canadian Kinney pressing of Exile on Main Street.
    I paid around $60 for a VG+ unboxed Decca mono pressing of Beggars Banquet.
    I should have paid the $60 being asked for a NY RVG Blue Note pressing of Blakey Jazz Messengers Free for All that I saw in a DC record store.

    This seems to be a price ceiling for me.
     
  19. Yes I am currently in process of a move with collection all boxed but I will pull out this set and give you more details....a good excuse to listen to it again!;-)also I have it on c.d. as I have given up most of my vinyl years ago unfortunately!
     
  20. I PAID LIST....$169 FOR "G STANDS FOR GO BETWEEN'S VOL.1".....I TRIED IN VAIN TO BUY IT WHEN IT WAS OFFERED WITH A PIECE OF GRANT McCLENNAN EXTRA....FAILED!BUT A YEAR OR SO LATER OF SEARCHING AMAZON I FOUND A SEALED COPY FOR $169....NEEDLESS TO SAY I JUMPED ON THAT!!!IT NOW GOES FOR WE'LL OVER $600!I LOVE THE BOX....BEAUTIFUL!!!

    According to discogs, Robyn Hitchcock's "Tromso Kaptein" has been selling between $72,85 and $94,14 U.S. dollars which makes it my most expensive LP. Boxsets, I think it would be The Sleater-Kinney coloured vinyl of 2014, CDs I didn't check.

    Yes, I played it when I received the new Sgt. Pepper for comparison. The UHQR was much better IMO.

    Gasoline Alley turns up frequently in the used bins over here, but typically trashed and the US pressing isn’t great anyway. I have a German Verigo (non-gatefold) and a Canadian, nice to have both with their different covers.
