A couple of weeks ago I went into an antique shop near my college and saw they had a red 'A Kind Of Magic' vinyl in really good condition, it was £15. I couldn't be bothered to buy but I had a change of heart today and decided to go and buy it..but..some bastard had got there first and bought it..so I was just wondering how much it was worth?

It's worth quite a lot.

You missed something special, I'm afraid.

I know, I'm going to go into the shop again on Monday just so I'm certain it's been sold..It might have just been moved or something.

When I was a kid I saw ANATO & ADATR & NOTW on white & blue & green vinyl for £5 each in a record shop in town - I was on 30p a week pocket money and my mum & dad woudn't let me 'borrow' almost a years worth of pocket money to buy them (probably as they couldn't afford it) so I couldn't buy them ... it still hurts now, I really which I had had the money at the time

Aw, you missed out on the bargain of the decade!

I once bought the French green vinyl NOTW on a flea market for about 2 euro's! :-D

I know how you feel Poppy, my uncle got a white, unlabeled LP from a friend once, around 1974 who had found this on a market. Like I said, there wasn't really anything labelled on it except the words "zoom" printed very small at the bottom.
Anyway my uncle who was a big fan of Queen already didn't know what it meant and just stashed it between his other bootlegs.

Now, more then 30 years later he can't find it anymore! :-(
It could just be the original "Zoom '75" LP whitch is around 1800 dollars. Now that sucks.

Hmmm... the original Zoom indeed has plain labels with the titles printed on the bottem (in those old style, capital type-writer letters)

Then again: the original does have a picture sleeve... Without that one the value of the record is a lot less ;-)

Watch out for colored vinyl fakes. There's quite a few of them out there.
