For me if i was not playing this LP, and knowing that others covet it ( judging by the price), i would sell so that someone else could enjoy it. In fact that is what i did with my collection of LP’s, i had no intention of buying a turntable so sold them on.
It had the added bonus of removing any future temptation.
That place beginning with E isn’t necessarily a good marker for value. Check Discogs for a more exact valuation estimation (in the sense you can see past sales and current price listings). Also see popsike.
Has the album been rereleased on vinyl? I’ve sold first pressings for £100+ and bought a brand new one for £20.
Agreed - I see a lot of CDs sat on eBay at truly laughable prices, but they don’t seem to sell. I’m not enough of an unscrupulous businessman to know why one would do this, but I suppose you only need one person to need it desperately enough and with the money to spare.
So, first thing I’d do is see whether this £200 one sells. If not, you might end up spending a lot in auction site fees for no reward!
I’m pretty sure there’s some serious gouging going on. I use to be able to order a CD from the States from the Big River, it was generally cheaper than anywhere else and delivered in a few days. Ever since they’re opened in Aus prices have skyrocketed and I can wait 6 weeks for delivery.
