    I’d like to know an estimate value of this vinyl record I bought. I got it for 15 dollars at my local record store. It is in vg condition with 2 minor scratches that do not affect play. Thanks![​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
  2. It's valuable to the education of your mind. You cannot put a price on Axis: Bold as Love anymore than you can put a price on love, itself.

    You could get 9 dollars for it, if 6 was 9.

    I thought I'd start a new thread on this topic. but thought better of it so i'll post it here hoping the OP doth not take offense:

    When is it appropriate to start a new thread rather then just post your query to an existing thread on the same subject, generally, if not specifically?

    I ask because I am noting a new trend towards endless threads being started when a quick and easy search might answer the query, or finding a thread where the question could be easily asked on topic and a new thread not really needed.

    I see in some new threader OP profiles under "threads started by" that some folks post more new threads then they post in existing thread, like every query deserves its own thread and none of this has been discussed over the past 18 years by the 10 billion music lover herein. Sorry, getting a little high on my soap--box!

    Am I off base? Anyone noting this trend? It sort of like an anti-lurker, who watches but never chimes in, this other type seems to need a little guide dance or lines maybe?

    I dunno, asking for your thoughts, but please don't rip me a new ******* if I'm way off base. Honestly just curious on forum etiquette, if it is appropriate to this discussion.

  12. The OP is a 14 year old. Cut him a little slack, y'all. For real. He's 14.

    My apologies, had no idea. Makes more sense now. How were we to know he was 14? And it was just a general query on "NEW" thread etiquette, not an attack on the OP.

  14. Judging by his name, I’m guessing he’s more like 35.

    It's a great record that was worth whatever you paid for it. Hang onto it and enjoy.

    Popsike.com is pretty good site for seeing what price records have sold for on the collectors market.

    I have found their prices to be pretty accurate.

    That was my plan! What cleaner do you recommend though? It’s got dirt down in the grooves that I can’t see. Also, I can’t afford a spin clean right now nor do I really want one. I will buy one if I have to though of course.

    Nah, I asked on here because I’d like to talk to other people about Hendrix and his music as well as other things. I have it on Discogs, but that’s just how much the record has been sold for and I don’t see that as too terrible accurate. I agree, this post could be just clogging up the forum. If it is, I am happy to take it down! And don’t worry, I’m not offended! You raise a completely valid point.

    Two Tone is a reference to the Reprise label variations from 1960s to 70s.

    So for example, Jimi's first album, Are You Experienced? came out in early 1967 on what is known as the Reprise tri-color label originally, so that would be a first pressing.
    IIRC, Axis: Bold as Love came out late in 1967 on the next, Two-Tone Reprise label, tan on bottom and a sort of reddish brown on top. Then, most pressings from then on were all tan Reprise. So if your label is ALL one color, tan/brown, it is a second pressing or later, but if indeed your pressing is a two-tone you have an original Axis US pressing, and good on you, enjoy it, it is a fabulous record your enjoy the rest of your life, even moreso once you get it cleaned proper. I envy you, being so early into your sure to be fun and rewarding record collecting journey.

    Enjoy the ride!

    PS: Sorry to ask my rude question in your thread, I was just wondering for a few weeks now about NEW thread etiquette and then you inquired...
