Crazy Price For A Beatles Album

Recommended Posts

Beatles 6 is actually, according to Wiki, their seventh album. This mono  sealed pressing is over $775 with two days to go.

 

So do you think it's too late for me to put a bid in?

(but not at that price)

 

Collectors get a little crazy at times, and one presumes they will hold it to appreciate further  rather then play it.  Which considering it's the Beatles, that's a decidedly good idea. Why hurt your ears if you don't have to.

US pressing, so it's probably not even close to the first generation pressing. only way to tell what pressing generation it is is by opening it and having a look.

If it is verified, it will cost 2k...

If opened and a different record is inside(rare) it could be worth even more so, price is right...a win/win

Good Show...

I think it was produced for the north American market so it would be a US pressing.  Not that I care about early boy band history.

Sooner, rather than too much later, there won't be any more boomers to pay such an insane price.  The P-Funk lp, on the other hand, is fairly priced considering its importance (top 200 lps of all time, first place in the genre, and one of the 1001 lps we must hear before we die) and inflation from 1978, and it's Thebes approved.  Considering inflation, it is only triple original retail (roughly).  The fact that it will have all of the extra goodies Parliament was known to provide is worth a lot, because in the used market those are mostly long gone.

Need I say more?

 

Well the Beatles album went for a couple of bucks under a grand. Given the big bucks some spend on every aspect of this hobby (cables come to mind), it's not an awful amount of dough.  Still a bit silly since it"s decidedly some of their most mediocre work.

I thought you were a hot sauce baron with more money than you could possibly spend. Are you just feeling needy and want to be pampered?

Tax and shipping put it over a $K. Can't believe you let this one get away.
