Attention!!! I know this is a very expensive Price for the record. This i one of my most beloved Records, so my primary intention isn't the selling. I like it in my collection. I only will sell it, if someone wants it that much, that he is willing to pay that much money. Therefore the unrealistic price. Please don't tell me about it. I don't want to cheat ,I don't force someone into buying it, I don't want to drive up the price.Thanks for understanding
That DJ must be pretty well off if he can afford to just chuck a collection in the trash. Rich. Or Stupid. Or both...
One year at hogmanay at the Art School, top Glasgow nite-spot Optimo gave away a free Liquid Liquid 45s at the end of the night. Of course, most young people don't have record players, so many were used as frisbees outside. The next morning on the Optimo message board people said they'd gone up in the morning and just picked up copies off the street. Someone who'd missed the copies on the street went up and found a load... in the bins!
in this case the crowd saw no point in claiming those 7s because they were being given away gratis. I doubt the cleaners would have been picking any up if they were being sold at market value.
I regularly see apparently serious collectors flick past fine records simply because they're in the cheapie bin, which, don't get me wrong, is damn fine by me if I get them instead.
so a high price point can operate like a five star review to people who don't know otherwise. wotcha reckon?
I'm pretty sure these weren't original 45s though... but I agree with what you say! All the better for us.
I sometimes feel like I behave like this as well though. Can't think of an example but it feels familiar.

Drastically reduced to 72p
Some kids from my school were in a crap 80s hardcore / punk band called Devastation who made one self-released EP. The vast majority of the copies sat around in the guitarist's mum's house for an age, with many being either frisbeed or melted and turned into ashtrays, flower pots, etc.
He now works in a garage.
Copies go for £20-£50 each!
Though of curse that may be because they're now quite rare.
To infinity - and beyond!
