DAG!! A Moody Blues LP Costing HOW MUCH?!

Posted by on Thu, Mar 1, 2012 at 1:43 PM

I was scrolling through Intoxica Records' eBay™ store yesterday when I found a Moody Blues LP...um, the Moody's extensive catalog has been a dollar-bin staple for YEARS, suddenly with hella appreciation.

YEAH, that IS a copy of To Our Children's Children's Children for $160. Intoxica's English copies of the Small Faces Decca LPs were on offer for HALF what they wanted for this Moody's LP!? Mind blowing!! Seriously, To Our Children's Children's Children is a fantastic record, but if you EVER pay more than a couple bucks for a copy, well...you're a fool. I got a "watch" on this LP to see if it EVER sells.

Now, I know just YESTERDAY I was complaining about NW record nerds being cheap fucks, BUT $160 for a UK copy of ANY Moody Blues LP is ridiculous...now if its rarity warrants a $160 price, that'd be a different story, natch.

I went to Intoxica records when I was in London last month. Laughably absurdly overpriced. U.K. edition of traffic albums for 50-75 pounds. Seriously.

Oh I bet...what with all those "rare" Island label center sticker variants! Ack!! But somebody MUST pay those prices...otherwise it'd be just ANOTHER record store full of records no one will ever buy.
