vThe ivory vinyl MIH album seems to have seen a realy surge in price recently.  This one is going for £60.00 at the moment on ebay......... how much is the standard black vinyl issue worth??

Isn't the Ivory one the standard one?

not sure to be honest.  When it was released, I remember picking up a white vinyl as well as the standard black vinyl at the same time. I seem to remember that a black vinyl was going for upwards of £80 a while back on ebay.

according to the seller, not as many sold as the white vinyl. Would be interesting to find out if the white vinyl was limited and if so, how many were produced...

right.... managed to find out.  pcpki.com

MADE IN HEAVENUK ivory coloured vinyl ("Limited" edition of 50000
worldwide) and black vinyl as well. There are a variety of different packagings
for the CD depending on country: some have a row of "Q"s embossed along the CD
spine; some have the "Made In Heaven" postmark embossed onto the front of the CD
case in either black or white. Some have both, some have neither. Japanese
edition (?limited?) with 40 page booklet and outer cardboard sleeve.
The UK vinyl has the sunset picture on the front and the sunrise picture
inside with the sunset picture on the a-side label and the sunrise picture on
the b-side label. The UK cassette has the sunrise picture on the outside. The UK
CD has the sunrise picture on the booket and the sunset picture on the picture
CD. The USA CD seems to have the sunrise picture on both the booklet and the
picture CD. To recognise them: the sunrise picture has an overall blueish tinge;
and the sunset picture has a goldish tinge, a bit of water turbulence next to
the microphone/balcony rail of the house, and a slight mist over the water.
Strangely, the sunset picture has a damn great tree on the right of the statue
whereas the sunrise picture does not.
There is an advance cassette version of the album from the USA with a
slightly different version of "Let Me Live" on it. No details yet of how
widespread it is, though some places advertise it quite cheaply.
LPs

One to look out for apparently..........

The ivory vinyl version was actually more the 'standard' version.
Black vinyl is much much more difficult to get by and in general gets a much higher price.

I have the Zimbabwe record as well.
If anyone wants it and has a SERIOUS offer - bring it on! I'm willing to part with it :-)
The record and the sleeve are both as new, never played.

60 pounds for the ivory one?  Dang...some people just can't stand to lose a bidding war, I guess.

Your page is great, man.

Did you get my scans from the mexican Back Chat/Calling all girls 12" single (Charlas de Fondo)?

I sent them a long time ago.

Also, when time allows, you should consider including CD releases information there as well.

Any idea of how much does a mexican Made In Heaven CD early release (with original version of Let Me Live) is worth? It's been in my shelf for 13 years now.

Thanks! I'm glad you enjoy my site!
Yes, I did receive the scans. I still haven't found any information on the Mexican MIH CD though...maybe some here can help...?
