    Thank you - I just ordered it from Discogs. Indeed, it doesn't feel right paying £40 for a record released a couple of months back but it's demand and supply. Add to that the fact that my "future collectible" radar never works properly. I do hope the James Tatum album is issued in more than 500 copies.
    It's possible it sold so well because there were only 500 copies.

    James Tatum will be 1000, and should be ready at the end of the month

      Gerald, is there any chance of a second press of the Chris McGregor? I'm having a hard time spending what is looking like 50+ GBP for a record that was just released :-(

          Yes and no. The Chris McGregor album is very good. There are lots of records out there pressed in 500 copies or less that never ever sell out -the biggest reason imo is that the type of music included interests but a handful of people (heck, there are records pressed in 50 copies that never sell out!).

          This one sold out so fast my local record store never managed to receive any of their pre-ordered copies at all (!).

          So I'm tempted to ask why you are going to reissue James Tatum in 1000 copies but the Chris McGregor album was reissued only in 500 copies. Honest question, just curious as both are excellent records.

            Yes it's a very valid question. Ideally I'd like to press up the exact amount of each record required to satisfy demand and have just a few left over for the future. Sometimes I get it right, sometimes not; it's not an easy decision to make. It's unfortunate that the business isn't large enough to warrant any kind of market research, so I have very little to base my judgement on apart from instinct and, more importantly, past sales of similar records.

                  Absurdly priced at the moment at discogs. I managed to find a copy (almost twice the original price) but shame on all those that bought it to resell at such extremely huge, inflated prices.

                      New records can be more expensive than OGs these days. If you don't pounce the minute something is released you can be buggered.

                        Yeah I dithered for a couple of weeks, even went to buy it and ended buying some other things instead! Only myself to blame, I did pick up the 'James Tatum' though. I shouldn't moan I still have new records in their shrink I haven't listened to yet.

                          also, if I was a label I would regard all this crap as an irritating failure to have read the market, and to his credit, Gerald clearly does. but obviously there are labels that regard it as a badge of success. I imagine it part of the business model: sell 90% of an ultra limited run at retail, then attempt to almost double up again by gouging on the remaining stock.

                          I moaned about price gouging on new releases over on the DWG board but was told that I was hating on teh game to complain about people selling brand new records for £250+

                              The live music industry has run this business model for years, routinely holding back a good chunk of tickets for the secondary ticket sites (which they part own) to sell at massively inflated rates then pretending to be appalled that 'real fans' are getting ripped off. A 20% allocation to the secondary market can easily match the revenue of 80% of tickets bought through normal sales for a hot artist. See also the practice of releasing a small proportion of tickets to create a 'sold out' scenario to push more business through secondary ticketers like StubHub, Get Me In etc. Plus ca change etc

                                Fak it there's a ton of unheard or re-released jazz etc coming out alongside great new stuff all the time. I lose no sleep over it, the majors play this game all the time with their limited editions, limitless remasters. I'm sure Jazzman didn't see the demand as Trunk didn't with 'Bedazzled' and these touts have got their hand in every pie going.

                                The James Tatum is a great release by the way played it t'other night. Still available and will no doubt be on discogs for a ton when its sold out and someone will no doubt buy it because its 100 quid and its still in its shrink, 'Must be good they only pressed a 1000'. I cant buy every record going I've accepted that and I buy them to listen to in the end.
