Do you all know if the vinyl version of "At The Beeb" is rare or not?    Thanks for letting me know and have a good day!

Sincerely,

I wouldn't put it on my immediate wants list and I don't think it's anything special, but I have only seen about 5 copies of it on vinyl in the last few years and it usually fetches around £50-£70 on ebay.

50-80?
Yeah right.

I bought it 2 years ago for 25 including shipping.
It often sells for around 20 pounds.

Yeah, two years ago.  I got is for £10 10 years ago, so what?  The last couple on ebay has fetched over £50.  One was £70.  I know because the guy who wanted to buy mine has fetched those prices.  I have literally only seen about five of them in the last couple of years, all of them on ebay.  It's been about a decade since I've seen it in any second hand store, and I travel the length and bredth of the country record hunting.  But, as I say, I've never regarded it as anything  special and wouldn't pay any more than the £20 you've said.

Just checked that popsike link, and there has been five in 2010 (not counting the "test pressings" and picture discs) - of them, only one was mint and hit £69.  The one closest to that was £40 whilst the ones hitting £20 weren't as good. All the other listings were from around 2006-2008.

I have this one, I think I have paid about 30 pounds for it and I don't think it worth much more. Nothing really rare...

I got mine a few months ago (off eBay, I'm pretty sure) and I paid about $25 USD including shipping to Mexico.
It's all a matter of finding a good offer and a bit of luck. Nobody else bid on it at that time.

I paid a bit less for an ivory colored LP of Made in Heaven and I have seen this one sell for a lot of money also.

My best purchases, however, may have been the following:

Liar/Doing All Right (US 7" single - NOT promo)
Keep Yourself Alive/Lily of the Valley/God Save the Queen (US 7" single - 1975 reissue)
AOBTD/Keep Yourself Alive (US 7" Spun Gold)
Bohemian Rhapsody/I'm in love with my car (US 7" Elektra regular issue)
Bohemian Rhapsody/The Show Must Go On (1992 HR re-issue)

All of these for $13.50 USD... including shipping to Mexico!!

I got these off a small record store through the Internet. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw LIAR and KEEP YOURSELF ALIVE for $1 and $2 USD. :)

Anyway, I think you get the point. It's like Wiley said: purchase at the right time an be patient. I think we  all agree this record is nothing special and one should not be paying more than 20-30 pounds for a mint copy....
