Likely nothing more than a novelty, but a fun idea.

Rainbo Records pressing plant closes in Los Angeles. They pioneered the flexi-disk.

yeah flipping through the new arrivals at the local store I saw a bunch of LPs that I could swear were $1-3 back when I started collecting a decade ago that are now priced around $8-12. I understand it in the case of Gentle Giant or XTC, since those bands always seem to attract the more obsessive types and there aren't exactly a ton of copies floating around, but mixed in there was a $12 copy of Thriller, which last time I checked was one of the highest selling albums ever. there was a $7 copy of the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack, an album which every thrift store on the planet used to have a half-dozen copies of. I just spent 10 bucks on a copy of Gary Numan's Dance, which is about the sum total I paid for his first four. I could've gotten Dance for a buck or two back then but I didn't feel like it. It was one of those albums you couldn't give away.

Condition is everything, were these (Thriller, SNF) in great condition? Because I imagine most copies out there are beat to shit.

Much like the squeeze in the run up to RSD, I'm sure it'll be the small labels who really get hit hard by this
