Hi,

Newbie member of the Queenzone community. Over the past few years I've been trying to complete my collections and I'm currently looking at this auction on E-Bay :-

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Queen-Roger-Taylor-Happiness-LP-Original-UK-Vinyl_W0QQitemZ370000887103QQihZ024QQcategoryZ1593QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

Is this a 'valid' copy of the LP ??? I've seen some kind of re-issues available ( from Germany I think ) but was wondering if this was the original release and 'how' limited was the release ? At only £2.00 it appears a bit too cheap to be true ??

Any advice / help gratefully appreciated.

Thanks

Tez

This is a bit of a backwards response, but if it's a pirate copy, it's the first I've heard of.

The LP is genuine and has been sold for ca 30 British pounds on ebay. 2 pounds is just the starting price. The 130 pounds mentioned in the auction are unrealistic.


I do not want any google ads here.

Note the big difference in value between the numbered and the un-numbered edition, Barb! :-)
The numbered one fetches a lot more.

Thanks for the advice all ... will continue to watch ...

Have e-mailed the seller to say that the £130 quote is a bit excessive .. she has replied saying she has removed that bit of the description ... price was based on a numbered copy selling through MusicStack.

I'll let you know how I get on ...

Cheers

Thanks, B!
So some people got the numbered one for a 'reasonable' price! ;-)
