Unopened DSOTM

Recommended Posts

Oh... Sorry. 2.gif

Is it an original pressing or one of those 180 gram audiophile pressing?

Depending on which one it is, I would say between $50-$150.

All original packaging and completely sealed..... That could be worth some decent money.

English, American, German, or Japanese pressing?

The last English pressing unopened I saw, went for 180, it was not a audiophile version. I talked to the person who purchased it, he wanted it for a PF memrobilia collection, and it he claimed it was only worth 80-100, but since he got to examine condition, and see that is was first pressing he paid that much.

FWIW

I just sold an unopened Canadian Capitol Records pressing of The Beatles Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band ( Stereo ) on Ebay for U$ 76.75

Had that LP been an original Parlophone Mono pressing in the shrink wrap it would have brought something in the area of U$ 275.00.

Your DSOTM in shrink wrap would bring some serious dinero especially if it is a British pressing!

Here is a link to that LP on Ebay.

Let's not stray into belly button lint, ok? The original British and US pressings had the pyramid murals on little placards, Taylor. Of the last ten "original pressings" I have seen, only one was, and it sold for $18, open.

You have to be careful, as most "OPs" are being sold by people that will simply reseal a used lp in plastic shrink. If you really want to determine exactly what going price is in St. Louis, call Vintage Vinyl, Euclid Records, and Streetside rock manager on Delmar, and take the average of their quoted selling price. Dollars to donuts, it won't be the original sealed, but stranger things pop up every day.9.gif

It depends on what label you are talking about. If it is the latest 30th anniversary then it can be ordered new for $25.

If it's a Mofi or Harvest it might be worth some dough.

I just picked up an opened Harvest label for $8.50 from a retailer, but sealed would get a few more $$'s in an auction market or with the right seller.

Edit:

The 30th anniversary edition is quite good. Since it is readily available I wouldn't spend too much money chasing the boutique labels.

I actually sold a sealed Mobile Fidelity copy last year for my brother-in-law for around $150 or so. Can't quite recall exactly (being so old is Hell...)9.gif

To me this was so overplayed in the seventies by the radio and club djs and ubiquitous at parties and friends' places that I never need to hear it again. So. . . not worth much at all. . . to me!9.gif

I bought a DSOTM unopened 5 yrs ago for five bucks ...still havent opened it. Ive heard this lp before lackluster performence. I dont know what all the fuss is about.

Maron....Is that a habit of yours, buying items you have no interest in or just plain ole hate?

You have to open it up to get the full effect.

Maron,

You really ought to think about offering that DSOTM up for sale so someone who does get it can enjoy it - it is just such a waste otherwise.

Personally I got it when I was, what, 10? and have got it ever since - its like a childhood friend now - 2 copies on CD (one the Musical fidelity one that cost way more than it should have) and 2 copies on vniyl (used to be 3 - gave one to a friend), plus a ripped version on my hard disk - for emergencies!!

Of course you could try listening to it again and see if you get it this time....
