02 August 2013 - 11:16 AMSee, this is an example on how pricey used vinyl has gotten.
About 5 to 7 years ago you could find this album for $10, I saw several copies over the years in pristine condition.
the other thing that grinds me is the limited editions on new records, if you miss the boat its all over, like the Black Crowes Before the Frost...I did not buy it and now it costs a fortune, meh.
Heh.. That price was from Amazon too. I found a similar edition in a store for $40. And the Immersion box set with the remastered vinyl (which supposedly doesn't sound much different at all) is over $100. At least that comes with all the bonus stuff though.
01 August 2013 - 03:13 PMI started to try and build a collection this year. There's a record store down the street from my apartment at school where I've spent hours at in the past year. So far I've picked up:
-Dark Side of the Moon
-Beastie Boys 12-inch DJ single for "Hold It Now, Hit It"
-Scoop (Pete Townshend)
-Quadrophenia (1980 pressing with the black and white photo book)
-Straight Outta Compton because why not?
-Relapse by Eminem
-The Wall (found a first US pressing in VG+ vinyl/VG+ sleeve-condition for only $25)
-Mothership Connection by Parliament
-Quadrophenia Demos 1 (record store day ltd. edition)
And brought over from my dad's collection:
-Led Zeppelin IV
-Tommy and The Who Sell Out
-Paranoid by Sabbath
-Back in Black and Highway to Hell
-Abraxas by Santana
-Animals by Floyd (first US pressing with unused lyric in "Dogs" on the sleeve)
-Blizzard of Ozz
-A bunch of Beatles, Beach Boys, 60's pop, and whatever else is in his bookshelf full of records.
It's a fun hobby, nothing like spending a couple hours flipping through bins.
