Just search for 'Paul C' and you'll find very average rap records going for stupid stupid prices.

$499 for a Supremes greatest hits is a bit much...I wouldn't pay a cent over $350.

musically (musically), Monday, 9 January 2006 06:23 (9 years ago) Permalink

do you think he meant to charge 4.99 and misplaced the decimal point?

Amateur(ist) (Amateur(ist)), Monday, 9 January 2006 07:19 (9 years ago) Permalink

Probably, but it's fun to think he's trying to pass it off as some northern soul rarity or something.

Dom iNut (donut), Monday, 9 January 2006 08:24 (9 years ago) Permalink

The seller already listed this LP once at $499 so it doesn't seem like a pricing mistake; could have at least dropped it to $399 on the relisting!

r3000, Monday, 9 January 2006 17:13 (9 years ago) Permalink

The rare Mexican print of the same triple album at : $60.

StanM (StanM), Monday, 9 January 2006 17:22 (9 years ago) Permalink

perhaps the seller is Icelandic and is using krona?

I have the Smokey Robinson & The Miracles Anthology that I bought for $0.99 at Scotti's in Morristown, NJ.

yeah those particular motown anthology sets are prime yard-sale material, i have about 2 grand worth by this guy's prices.

Although come to think of it I have seen the one-sided 7" of On Tape on sale for £125...

Colonel Poo (Colonel Poo), Friday, 13 January 2006 23:42 (9 years ago) Permalink

It seems like the Supremes seller took heed of our comments; he's relisted yet again, but now a mere starting bid of...$299.

r3000, Saturday, 14 January 2006 01:11 (9 years ago) Permalink

At least now he's being reasonable.

Poohsticks flexi was Hard On Love (Woosh 007) which cost me about a pound with the associated fanzine iirc.

Sarah 4 (fanzine only) for £19 also, almost a pound a page.

koogs (koogs), Wednesday, 18 January 2006 10:13 (9 years ago) Permalink

I wonder how much "Anorak City" would go for.

mark grout (mark grout), Wednesday, 18 January 2006 10:23 (9 years ago) Permalink

Harvey's stuff does seem to sell well, especially London Weekend. Blueboy is the same.

Anorak City - £34:20 just 2 days ago.

not as much as it used to

I think there's something extremely ironic that someone is willing to pay 800 quid for a punk single.

frenchbloke (frenchbloke), Tuesday, 7 February 2006 12:14 (9 years ago) Permalink

That Ed Banger 7" isn't that expensive, really. The "Ain't Bin To No Music School" 7" usually goes for about that much. I got lucky with that one.

There are loads of punk singles that go for hundreds of pounds -

Bad Brains - Pay To Cum
Crime - Frustration
a lot of singles featured on Killed By Death/Bloodstains comps (not all of them are that rare though)

I'm quite happy with my bootleg reissue of Pay To Cum, no need to splash out $1000 on an original copy...

Colonel Poo (Colonel Poo), Tuesday, 7 February 2006 15:15 (9 years ago) Permalink

A few months back, H@nry R@llins bought a punk single off me on Ebay for several hundred dollars.

That's insane. 500 copies, and not even in NM condition. I'm guessing the four watchers are just people watching to see if anyone actually bids on this. I don't know the record, but is there any precedent for that starting bid? Surely "one of the guys in Elf Power" is alone not enough to command such a price. Or is it?

Jimmywine Dyspeptic, Tuesday, 25 March 2014 22:41 (1 year ago) Permalink

There are 10 copies for sale on discogs between £6-12!

Discogs, once again, proving to be the better place to buy vinyl online.

Just sent the seller a query as to whether, for that price, this album comes with an audiophile-grade turntable to play it on.

I was looking at the Pixies' $200 new album and started surfing and found a bunch of "Bossanova" and "Trompe Le Monde" original CD singles for like $5. The b-sides on those singles are 1000000X better than anything I've heard off the new album.

How about when an ebay listing has "WOW" in the title? I see this ALL the time too.

Evan, Friday, 18 April 2014 19:32 (1 year ago) Permalink

This is why I failed as an eBay seller. Never once did I put "WOW" or "l@@k" into the item title or description.

It all makes sense now.

It's a misleading website - I had a play with it..

The ordinary black vinyl with hand-made sleeve (100 available) is $10
The test pressing version is $75 (there are five)
The Super-splatter colour version (five) is $100
There was a full-set version (one only) but that's gone.

(Digital download is $1)

Needless to say, I'm not checking out there.

Ohhhh that's confusing.

Still- you can have the vinyl as colorful and limited as you want but if you're a nobody band what's the difference?
