I sense Richard's hand in this ... he's buying a back up copy
It’s nuts! There are folks though who get caught up in all the bidding nonsense and reality takes a nosedive, also those that think if it’s on eBay it’s a bargain and some poor unfortunate souls who combine both practices.
Currently on e-bay 62 GBP with a day left of auction .
If it is £62 then the person selling will have their set paid for.
Not my bidding.
A back-up copy should be mine, but I'm not paying a silly price for it.
That's why CDs are great. They have that little advance button. Some even can be programmed
BOB DYLAN SAN DIEGO 28 NOVEMBER 1979 NEW SONY 2CD LIVE RARE | eBay
Sold for £117 - haha!
And the next one has already been launched:-
BOB DYLAN LIVE IN SAN DIEGO 28 NOVEMBER 1979 SONY 2CD RARE (BOOTLEG SERIES 13) | eBay
This one also is not mine
It is still available so if you are paying £117 then just buy the set or download it
It was purchased by someone who was frustrated with the delivery disaster from the website
Issues only seem to be in US rather than UK
It seems stupid to pay that price
And Canada. (And someone is Australia had issues, too, if I recall.)
Those people who still have problems will I am sure receive their sets along with SD eventually (I sympathise greatly with the stress they are going through). If they have now bought SD from ebay at such a ridiculous price, it would have been an unnecessary panic buy.
Personally I think this crazy purchase has been done by someone originally buying the set sans SD and then realising later that they really want it.
But why not re-buy the 'full monty' from bd.com now and then flog the basic non SD set ? A mystery to me.
People are not smart as is demonstrated everyday everywhere
Sad, but true.
Whatever about the way it has been released, this is a great performance from Dylan.
Great passion and belief in his vocals. The band isn't bad either.
This is amazing
Bob's always been intellectually and hence creatively nourished by the Torah and the Bible. Being so deeply influenced by the New and Old Testament I think he eventually re-integrated his faith into songwriting. The (sometimes unpleasant imo) judgemental dimension was always there, but gradually became more subtle. I wonder what Bob thinks about the (ex-) google guy formally establishing an A.I. 'religion'. Genesis 11:1-19 Part two.
(Sidestepping the discussion about how the material is presented...)
This show is SMOKIN’. Tim Drummond MVP.
I agree, and I can understand why it was edited out of the 8 CD set, but this bonus set would've been perfect to include whatever Bob was serving up that night. They could've just indexed it between the songs as well so if anyone didn't like it they can just skip on to the next track.
From the other thread:
My kinda dj.
Sorry, I should remain discreet. It is not quite kosher to do that. You can't even play an album by anyone. Over the last 45 years, I have broadcast many complete concerts by Dylan, but not recently. I did play the five Dylan Sinatra discs without interruption too earlier this year
It reminds me of when on Record Store Day you will see certain releases on Ebay by the same evening selling for £100+. Last time there were the 2 Bowie releases that were not really that limited at all. By the evening the BOWPROMO one was going for stupid money, when there were still copies unsold in certain shops. At same time people were bidding over £100 you could go onto some shops websites (such as the brilliant Drift Records in Totnes) and buy it for £35. Look on Discogs now and loads for around £20 - a few even less.
Why pay £117 for San Diego when you can get the whole set for £150? Saying that maybe I should have bought a set for £150, sold San Diego for £117 and bingo I get the actual box set for £33! Same sometimes with concert tickets. They will be selling for double price on somewhere like Stubhub when you can still buy them direct from venue.
Things have changed.
The insane thing isn't really the people paying as much as a computer diagnostics test for your car (too much for 5 minutes labor), but the fact that SONY would not sell it to the general public. Most of us actually paid around $60 for it, above market price of the box
Indeed -- it's the closest Sony has come to extortionist pricing since the infamous "deluxe" Tell Tale Signs. Fortunately, in every other way the box is excellent, so it makes the added cost a little easier to swallow.
