I found a blog that said Gira has no interest in issuing it on CD. I think I heard it at some point and, like the first Swans EP, it surprisingly didn't do anything for me.

that circus mort EP is terrible. it should in no way be compared to the first swans EP (except in that bimble likes neither of them). have you ever heard the original mix, bimble?

their release as polarbear may be worth something but it's no tigermilk

Popsike is a revelation, thank you. I need to get that Dib Cochran promo 7" auctioned - that's serious money.

This isn't on ebay but it still is crazy priced vinyl. There's 17 days to go and it is already at 26,000 dollars. Some say it may sell for close to 100,000 dollars and it's a 45 to boot !

That's kind of weird that people are out there putting "Don Pullen" into the ebay search engine and then driving an admittedly rare record of his up to almost $1,000 when I always end up finding his records for $1 to $6. $10 once sealed.

What I mean is, dude doesn't command cash, at least consistently $10-$30, for any old record the way some avant/free jazzers do like Sun Ra or Albert Ayler. I mean, the record's private press and seeing that it sold for about $1,000 already, I don't actually think in my head, "There's something not right about that." I just wanted to point up the difference between that and what some of his other records sell for in the wild, that there doesn't seem to be much demand for most of his records from the point of view of picking up his stuff in a few different towns and one city.

the ONLY don pullen records that sell for money are the ones that he made with milford. and they always have. first press copies of the yale thing go for 1000+ and even 2000+. no big thing. the same 5 people sell them back and forth to each other every few years out of boredom. like misfits fans.

probably should be more careful with my copy

almost every of the so-called "collector prices" refer to mint copies.
imo, extensive listening to your records makes them 'worthless' for collectors.

meisenfek, Saturday, 13 June 2009 17:36 (5 years ago) Permalink

a well cared for record will remain in good condition. listening alone isn't generally enough to degrade a record unless it's being played with a faulty, heavy or otherwise inappropriate stylus.

ian, Saturday, 13 June 2009 17:40 (5 years ago) Permalink

yes.
but try explain this to a 16yo with limited budget who recently bought 'Black Monk Time'.

meisenfek, Sunday, 14 June 2009 08:41 (5 years ago) Permalink

on CD, presumably.

Mark G, Monday, 15 June 2009 06:53 (5 years ago) Permalink

no. recently = round 1985. and it was the polydor re-issue on vinyl.

meisenfek, Monday, 15 June 2009 22:38 (5 years ago) Permalink

$545 for a copy of off the wall! i've got a copy in the store for five bucks.

a little/lot flabbergasted at the idea of a copy of thriller selling for more than $5. there are literally millions of them! MILLIONS!

that said, the store i work at got like twenty calls yesterday asking what mj stuff we had

pretzel walrus, Friday, 26 June 2009 17:11 (5 years ago) Permalink

people are ebay bombing MJ-related auctions, the tickets for his concerts are fetching up to $10k a pop, it's just people's idea of a joke

There's a big used record store here in Chicago, and when I was there a few weeks ago people kept walking into the store and all like "What's that song that went OH! Sherrie!" and then they would find that LP and they would pay $5-$10 for it. Kept happening over and over. I bet that place could sell MJ LPs for a good price today.

xp but oh man what about the negative feedback!?! think about the negative feedback!

i mean, you can TRY to sell something for whatever you want. dude with a copy of thriller signed by vincent price was trying to get 2 million for it.

scott seward, Sunday, 28 February 2010 00:55 (4 years ago) Permalink

the crazy prices that people actually PAY, that's another story.

scott seward, Sunday, 28 February 2010 00:56 (4 years ago) Permalink

you can still make good money with MJ picture discs and sealed records.
