Hey!

Yesterday I went to a second hand store, and they had the Jazz album with the poster.

I have the LP from before, but not with the poster.

It cost about 10 £.

Do most of you have the poster?
(yes the one with the ladies:)

Yes, but mine looks more like a battlefield.

10 bloody pounds? That's ridiculous!

I hope you didn't buy it.

I think I paid the equivalent of 6 pounds for both the Elektra-version without poster (but with textured outer sleeve) AND the EMI release with poster together. So 10 pounds is a rip-off.

That poster brings back memories...

There was a point I suspect that it was used as hard currency in some necks of the woods...

Form 3b in Great Buckinghamshire Middle School traded it like Gold... Happy days

... And the only shop in Helsinki to offer the album online has it for £9 currently.

It's only a rip-off if it costs more than the expected amount in that particular region. Prices are going to be lower in places where there are more albums to sell, and there is no global price you can set.

Well, I didn't want to be that graphic, but thanks for recycling my joke from above.

I think I have bought most of my vinyl records a little or very overpriced.

It is just that we don't get vinyl in Mexico anymore (just expensive imports) and I have only found one second hand record shop with very little stock in Queen items (only regular issue LP's).

When I have been to Europe I have bought many records thinking that I would never find them again, and sometimes I have paid more than their 'real' value.
