      Migala is now LorenzenRight. I think he has just put his collection on at mental prices as he doesn't really want to sell them, some of them are £1000 over the going rate.
      It would be great to have a filter like they have on cdandlp for price willing to pay on wants so my life wont be wasted refreshing the items I want page. As mentioned before it the overpricing is getting worse

        I found a disco 12" in a box of water damaged un-priced crud, took it up to the counter only to be told that it was tricky to price as the only copy on Discogs was £62, despite £30 being the highest it had sold on there before and a Popsike price of between $20 and £20 depending on if it was a US or UK copy.

        Luckily the owners were really good about it and sold it to me for a tenner in the end.

        The shop was Ollie Vees in Leighton Buzzard:

        They don't have much stock but I'd recommend a visit if you are in the area just to stop in for a coffee and admire the Tiki themed decor.
        it's OK to head out for wonderful, but on your way to wonderful, you're gonna have to pass through all right. When you get to all right,
        take a good look around and get used to it, because that may be as far as you're gonna go.

          They also had dozens of I Giganti Del Jazz releases. Of course this one wasn't included

                to be fair the discogs average is a bit rubbish. the second press monster movie on music factory would sell for 25Euro because of all the bootlegs sold under the release for example. There are also a lot of empty sleeves being sold for a fraction of the regular price and things like that.

                  There are some bonkers prices at the moment. I came across 'Gary Farr - Strange Fruit' I don't know why must have popped up and I own it so I took a look, not many copies but none under £200 there were multiple copies for 40 quid a year or so ago. Mines probably 'VG' it plays through albeit a bit crackly in places but doesn't jump and its alright but not a record I'd pay any serious money for. Makes me wonder how may of the mainly alleged VG+ ones are exactly the same as mine.

                    Well check Whisky Stephen's excellent comp which was only out recently. From £71! Sometimes it's the price of recently out of print records which have the most ludicrous prices.

                      Aye that really is ridiculous, i didn't realise that folk bought records and kept them sealed to sell on Discogs. I have two sellers that dominate my wants list - Repulsion in Colombia and Topsound in America and when anyone else sells something they sell then it makes their prices seem more normal, even if they're still too high. But, having sold a couple of records on Discogs to fund record buying, i can understand higher prices to cover Discogs and paypal fees, but that should be an extra tenner shouldn't it? Actually, why should that be higher than someone with rent on a shop? Ignore me. I'm skint, i can't buy records just now. Well, i can't buy a lot, but i can sneak the odd one in.

                        Great comp by the way - I'm one of the people who bought it to play.

                        It's pure speculation, same principle as the people who buy concert tickets just to flog them on. It's frustrating for all the genuine buyers who can't get hold of the records they want and then have to go buy them on the secondary market at inflated prices on discogs. Been nice to see though that a few labels like Trunk and Jazzman have then repressed records which would supposedly never be repressed thus thwarting the scalpers though.

                        The idea

                          Yep it was brought up recently with Ghost Box and the last 'Pye Audio Corner' release, they put the word out they are going to repress it. I hope they repress some others whilst they are at it for those late to the GB game such as myself!

                          Saying that there are reissues on Trunk and Finders Keepers I would love them to press again for my benefit but not silly enough to think pleasing me is a good business model! I suppose its how financially viable a re-release of a release or reissue is going to be certainly the growing popularity over the years of some of these great labels probably helps. Oh balls just re-release 'Draculas Music Cabinet' and 'Abstractions of the Industrial North'.

                            I'm not so sure about this. Migala72 is still on there, but LR might be an alternate identity. Same rare items, same over the rainbow prices.

                              It certainly raises prices all over which will no doubt settle down again at some point. The last record event I went to was a charity warehouse selling records they had collected over the year. The guy who runs the place is a music fan so he holds things back then prices it fairly enough and I know he auctions big ticket items.

                              Anyway I just witnessed the majority of people using their phones to price up records in teams of 2 or more. I found it pretty grim to be honest as I think buying music based on it's 'supposed' monetary value depressing. Add to that discogs is nuanced in terms of understanding value and the market fluctuates all the time. Maybe they were small time dealers as they were just grabbing huge piles and sat there doing each one. It's helpful to know that the guy who runs the place is not stupid.

                                One of the larger charities here do that as well. They hold back all records during the year, unsellable stuff is weeded out and put out in 50p boxes. The small city centre shop has a crate that they refill with some interesting stuff, usually at reasonable prices, say half book/Discogs price. Most of it goes out in a large yearly sale with everything at 3€. That's when you see all the small time dealers grabbing large piles of stuff, then checking condition/prices, absolute frenzy. Last year I saw one of the more annoying ones trying to get the staff to hold his pile of 200 records until next day as he had to leave and didn't have time to go through them, and at the same time trying to work out a discount as he was buying so many. I've gone to these sales but I tend to buy less and less from them.
