Continues to be Deep Purples Bananas at 113.00
This VG+ Sonny Rollins is probably the priciest record I own at this point. Classic Blue Notes can get a little crazy, from what I've seen...
I have the Klemperer Mahler Second Symphony on blue-and-silver UK EMI SAX. This set is two separate records, and my set is in beautiful condition and plays flawlessly.
Sets have been sold on eBay in the $700-1000 range, and they're not getting any cheaper.
My top few include:
The highest I have noted was around 400 dollars. I try not to pay more than a 50 cents for a record, but new ones are a bit more.
This is up near the top:
This one was a little spendy - at least for me, but the peel is outstanding and the framing was already done.
And this was a splurge but it seems to have gone up in value:
Yeah, prices on first and early pressing Blue Note records, especially from a certain time period, are notoriously expensive. Prohibitively so for most of us, I'd say. If only I'd spent my allowance on those records instead of baseball cards and comic books!
My Mobile Fidelity LPs ... Legacy & New. Some are so rare ... they don't even show up on eBay much anymore.
Talked to a fellow once at a rather large local Flea Market. He was selling all his Audiophile
LP's that he collected for 35 years. Why? I asked. "You know buddy, we're not getting any younger" ... good point I thought.
Original pressing of Lawn Boy (Phish)
Plastikman - Arkives 1993-2010
Kate Bush - Aerial
Tool -Aenima (original pressing)
Temple Of The Dog - original pressing
Miles Davis -Complete Columbia cd box
Tom Petty - Wildflowers (original pressing)
I don't get it. "We're all going to die, so why enjoy your record collection?" A very dark view, if you ask me.
Probably an age thing (maybe health scare) ... when you start to realize that there are more days behind you then ahead. At some point, you figure out that you won't live long enough to play your
I've seen this play out numerous time over the years ... w/ folks I blog with. Some had some killer record collections. One guy bought legacy Blue Note for decades before
they became popular collectibles. He has since passed on and began selling before then.
Okay, well, that's one point of view. I myself regard such things as sources of comfort as I get older, things that keep life enjoyable. It would be hard to imagine life at any stage without music, books, and art. I do find myself much more discriminatory at this point, buying less but buying "better," as it were, and not so impulsively.
My Tom Waits Orphans box set is my number one right now. My personal favorite is my Kind of Blue in original shrink 6 eye.
I think you might be a little off with your demand estimate for the listed bands. Many do go for a lot of cash and are very hard to find.
I would agree. Remember, those albums were released at the height of the CD era, when LP copies likely were pressed in limited numbers. A couple of weeks ago I saw a very used first-press copy of Loveless in a local record store. The cover was very beat up -- I'd probably grade it far less than G. The vinyl looked VG-plus. Sticker price: $200.
Man, that's some good stuff right there.
I agree they're hard to find. Took me years to track down original pressings of all five Pavement albums, my dozen or so YLT albums, etc. When I started going back through and valuing my records this last year, I found they and other similar records from that era had increased in value about two or three times what I paid for them ten or so years ago. They just don't quite bring as much as guys like Dylan, and the more decent repressings that come out, they just don't hold value like they used to. My original of Beck's Sea Change took a hit when they repressed it. Used to be the only pressing available. But it all ebbs and flows.
Yeah, some of those rare OG Blue Note pressings are going for 3-4K+ on eBay . No way I can play in that league...
Roxy Music SACD of Avalon ... The original SACD pressing in the round cornered case.
I picked its up in Best Buy years ago just because I am a Roxy Music fan ...
couldn't even play it at the time ... apparently its unobtainable now!
1st press of Sex Pistols -Never Mind The Bollocks, matrix A1-B1.
The only one I could see on discogs is A3-B1 at AU$840.
