  • What's the One Album That You Are Searching For...

    That you would pay big bucks for?

    For me might be a tossup between a FR1 pressing of HiFi a la Espanola on Mercury or maybe an ED1 of Ansermet doing Stravinsky's Firebird.

    Not to say that's all I'm looking for. Man those early black label Contermporarys are a bear to find. What happened to all of them! Did they all get thrown out?

    I'd like the Ansermet Firebird as well. Add to that Argenta's Espana. David Bowie's S/T LP on Philips would be pretty sweet, too. :-) A NM copy on Discogs is going for over $6K!
    Kronos Sparta -> Trinity Phono -> Trinity Pre -> CH Precision A1 -> Magico S7s

      A clean early English pressing of Van der Graaf Generator's Godbluff. The one I bought when it first came out in 1975 was stolen, and I've never found a good clean replacement. The 180 gram Back On Black reissue is heavily compressed and sounds like a digital source, closer to the CD issue than the original vinyl.

        I believe it was sourced from the CD remaster series that Petter Hammill oversaw. The life was compressed out of it. Unlistenable.

          Guess no one is into Tool.

          You could pay this one off at $193/month for 24 months.

          http://www.ebay.com/itm/TOOL-AENIMA-...kAAOSwp5JWUhY7

          This has come down from an original asking price of $1200.

          http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw...ma+lp&_sacat=0

          One day left on this one and so far the asking price is cheap. Usually a five hundred dollar item.

                      My lp collection has gotten silly large. For months and months and months I have been receiving packages nearly three to four times a week. I now have so many new albums, I likely will never get a chance to listen to them all. An absurd and childishly spoiled compliant..I know. Yet, when record store arrives or a great box set is released the addictive urge has me reaching for the Visa. Fortunately, here in Milwaukee we have a few well stocked vinyl shops, with some of the most competitive pricing.

                        My biggest issue are those 45 rpm LPs that take up 2X the shelf space of normal records.

                        I reckon by now must have paid for something that Chad has been lusting after.

                          Might be in luck. Just found a copy of this (UK Pressing on Charisma) listed in NM condition on ebay. Already ordered and should be here middle of next week. Hope it sounds good.

                            The one I didn't buy yet, if that makes any sense.... There's always another "grail"- the Tool stuff you mentioned, including Ænima, is something I'd buy just to expand my horizons-- i really like Steve Wilson's work with Porcupine Tree as an example- but the Tool stuff seems to be too pricey to buy just to explore their music. On the stuff I know, I'm afraid to say I already have a lot of what I want. Wouldn't mind a first pressing of Odyssey and Oracle, but I don't want to pay the collector's tariff for one. I'm sure there are a few that I want, e.g. a real Psychedelic Mushroom, and some of those cool early prog records that Ken Golden has identified, but you know what? Eventually, I find them!
