Not to totally change the subject, but I feel similarly about the bank KISS.  I don't get it..

I just picked up a NM- UK pressing of Pink Floyd's "A Nice Pair" on vinyl.  That is a good way to get both Piper at the Gates of Dawn and A Saucerful of Secrets -- good quality pressings -- without breaking the bank.  You have to be careful which pressing you order...I've read that both the US and Japanese pressings of ANP swap out the studio version of Astronomy Domine for the live version.

Its a bleedin minefield!

There are companies claiming to sell the best or "hottest pressings" of widely available vinyl for silly money. They decide of course what that actually means but a handful of rich customers, maybe even just 10 or so, keep these shops in very good bizznezz. One such bloke makes so much dosh he can afford to live extremely comfortably. Guess Graham's in the wroing business😤

Indeed I can see how a unique item like the Mona Lisa has a high value but mass produced electric guitars go for silly money, anyone for a 1959 Les Paul?

Luckily there are a lot of second hand records at more reasonable prices than £2,400. Perhaps it's just the emergence of high end 'investment' market in old vinyl already seen in art, wine, cars, etc.?

Yeah, I've never understood that "collector" mentality. How can an album that's sold between 30 & 40 million be rare? I only buy for the music, couldn't care less if it has all the stickers, posters & what not as long as the vinyl is good. In fairness a decent early 70's US copy can be had for 50 bucks down to as little as 7 dollars

I've also got the Mo-Fi DSOTM, early 80's vintage I think, very thin vinyl anyway. It's noticably better than the 30th anniversary heavyweight vinyl reissue I bought about 10 years ago which sounds like the speakers are behind a curtain. I wish I still had the copy I bought on the day the album was first released. Can't remember if the label was blue or black but I somehow feel it was better than either of the copies I have now.  Probably rose tinted specs as we all know musical memory only lasts 10secs.. not 40 years!!

Incidentally I checked discogs to see if I could find an early 70's pressing. A near mint UK 1st pressing with the blue label and both posters & stickers untouched was only.................................... £2400.00 Confused
