About PRICES for "vinyl" albums, and sometimes a CD.
I have a CD called "ELECTRIC MOTHERF***ERS" by the Rolling Stones. (they have another album with the logical title: "acoustic motherf***ers" and this album is exactly the same as another Rolling Stones album: an acoustic or unplugged + 5-6 extra tracks.)
The "E M" is on a label called COBRA. I discovered it somewhere in Antwerp, where they have a market and fleamarket. I paid quit much for this album, and I took some copies, afraid and knowing myself how "chaotic" I am about my CD's. Price: still in Belgium Francs, but = 30€ or 43$.
One of my patients was a Rolling Stone freak, having ALL the records, also another patient, even worse, going to CD or Album markets, both never heard about this "Official"? because of the label (it is not guaranteed that it was original or a fantastic good bootleg) they offered me up to 100$ for my little CD, with songs on it, never released, duets Jagger and Tina Turner, the Bluesbrothers, a special version for Keith Richard's birthday with Clapton on guitar). I have at least 50 albums (vinyl) by the Who,the Kinks, all first edition.
My personal opinion is that an album from EUROPE is sometimes more valuable than in the USA, because of album sleeves, BANNED in the USA, but not here. All these factors are important. Another important fact is: the MARKET: different tracks, or in another ranking: UK & Europe, USA, JAPAN. As I saw here: go to eBay.com, look for vinyl albums and you can see amazing $$$
- Beatles Rubber Soul MOCL as FIRST-HUNDRED-COPY!! N MINT US $1,250.00 as STARTING BID.
There is even: the most expensive album, never released Chinese Democracy by Gun's & Roses.
You should read the article. Best way to figure it out is what I did: google the most expensive albums, and you will see some amazing facts. I really hope this will help you, and in the mean time I will look and dig deeper, I have time to do it and I am glad to help people.
