It's kind of hard to tell. First, it's sealed, so I don't know which version it is exactly. Second, sealed/mint copies listed up to $350, but not seeing that copies have sold that high. My guess is I might be able to get $100-$150?

Of course there are a couple copies on ebay between $200-$500 as well.

Well yeah people can ASK for whatever amount they want.

Popsike archives sale details for reference.

Ha, slow down- you have to add "1970" and sort by new to old, then pick the most recent sale(s) of copies that match yours.

Beatles collectors can be insane

No kidding. I'm shocked to find out that the most (potentially) valuable record I own is this 1978 reissue of the White Album on white vinyl.

to be fair:

"New lacquers were cut for this release."

and from the comments:

"The sound quality on this particular pressing is the very best you'll find, and in my estimation, better than the original UK stereo (I have both). It has a luminous quality that is really compelling."

so it's kind of like that reissue pressing of Bowie's Hunky Dory, where the stars all aligned properly w/r/t sound quality, I hate to sound like a Hot Stamper huckster but sometimes certain pressings really do shine

I've never heard of that White Album on white vinyl. Ha!

Why, I would make a fantastic Nero! (PBKR), Friday, 3 April 2020 02:03 (three months ago) link

The weird thing is that I didn't know it was on white vinyl until after I bought it. Music Mart (RIP) in Costa Mesa just reshrinkwrapped a promo version and put it out on the floor.

two weeks pass...

I've never cared to do any discogs edit but I came across a version of a Swirlies 7" that isn't there... I feel like I could figure out creating the entry but I'm a little intimidated by it. Everything is relatively clear expect the part about how to add a version of a release rather than a standalone. Anyone have experience with this?

whoops- *except

Evan, Tuesday, 21 April 2020 18:23 (two months ago) link

I suggest a Discogs forum for this question.

brotherlovesdub, Tuesday, 21 April 2020 19:00 (two months ago) link

this explains it just as well as i could, and with pictures:

if you're having a hard time with any of that i'm happy to help / clarify

budo jeru, Tuesday, 21 April 2020 19:07 (two months ago) link

I sympathise. I was all ready to add the new Cowboy Junkies album but I got stuck on which format to use, since it's only available on streaming services, not as a CD or a download. A quick look at the discogs forum confirms that albums only released on streaming services are not eligible for inclusion, since it's not possible to "own" them. Which leaves the Cowboy Junkies discography on discogs sadly incomplete.

the grateful dead can dance (anagram), Tuesday, 21 April 2020 19:11 (two months ago) link

you should just make bootleg CD-R versions of all the streaming-only stuff and then list them as placeholders until the band has the good sense to actually release their records, at which point some future nerd can merge those releases with yours

budo jeru, Tuesday, 21 April 2020 19:15 (two months ago) link

it’s not incomplete if they didn’t release it. streaming only is dumb.

brimstead, Tuesday, 21 April 2020 19:21 (two months ago) link

some future nerd will probably not enjoy having to delete some random homemade CD-R from the database

brimstead, Tuesday, 21 April 2020 19:24 (two months ago) link

it was a joke you dork

budo jeru, Tuesday, 21 April 2020 19:26 (two months ago) link

lol d’oh

brimstead, Tuesday, 21 April 2020 19:34 (two months ago) link

no you're dumb, why is streaming it not releasing it?

the grateful dead can dance (anagram), Tuesday, 21 April 2020 22:18 (two months ago) link

This thread is so 2020 right now

ravedeaf nineHEIN?seventyWHO? (Craig D.), Tuesday, 21 April 2020 23:13 (two months ago) link

so bands as “big” as the cowboy junkies are just streaming albums now, not releasing them? that’s totally awesome.

brimstead, Wednesday, 22 April 2020 04:01 (two months ago) link

fine call it “releasing”, whatever

Collection as listed there is probably less than 20% of my physical collection. Oh well.

Thanks for sharing! Wow you're pretty active in the comments. Some hot takes there notably in your praise of Slovenly!

Evan, Wednesday, 22 April 2020 17:48 (two months ago) link

https://discogs.page.link/1a9Q <- does that work? Not really complete as I put all my collection into CLZ collector before I realised Discogs would be much better, and couldn’t face having to do it all again. Will get round to it at some point but for now this is mainly new purchases and a few of the bigger box sets and stuff.

Hey Ant1973 how's that Blue Notebook reissue? I really liked that album a lot when it came out. Should revisit.

Evan, Monday, 27 April 2020 14:25 (two months ago) link

I loved the Blue Notebooks when i came out, but I feel like it's been so completely subsumed into tv/movie soundtracks that there's no need to re-listen to it now... it's just kinda ambient in the culture at this point.

enochroot, Monday, 27 April 2020 14:35 (two months ago) link

Yeah I have a general aversion to music that specifically sounds like a doctor drama theme. That being said, where has Blue Notebooks shown up?

Evan, Monday, 27 April 2020 14:44 (two months ago) link

I don't use Discogs to log my collection, so here's my seller profile, sorted from priciest downwards.

The most valuable record I own is the UK 7-inch promo of Martha Reeves - No One There, which I don't plan to sell unless I'm in dire financial need.

mike t-diva, Monday, 27 April 2020 14:59 (two months ago) link

Only just got around to starting this. Fun. Frustrating.

Hey I finally got around to adding that Swirlies release just like a real life archivist!

Evan, Friday, 22 May 2020 22:36 (one month ago) link

hey, nice job !

budo jeru, Saturday, 23 May 2020 00:21 (one month ago) link

link ?

budo jeru, Saturday, 23 May 2020 00:23 (one month ago) link

Well, it wasn't actually too confusing once I tried it. Just looked a little intimidating...
