We love vinyl. Vinyl pants, vinyl hats, but mostly vinyl records. Vinyl siding, not so much.

Anyone else hit up some record stores on Saturday?

I would've liked to hit up Indy stores but did make a long visit to Gramophone in Chicago. Left with a nice selection of fidget house and tech house.

I never stopped buying records. During the fuss over cds I worked at a store called Hymie's in Minneapolis, eventually opening a store in the basement called Granada Market that was a vinyl oriented flea market (most of the dealers were of that ilk). Hymie passed away and two great ladies took over and if you are ever up here you should get lots of records there, and also the joint is for sale, so c'mon it is your dream come true. I'd do it if I wasn't on a different path now.

You all should go to this website for a label called Roaratorio, at natch. These are top quality hand made vinyl releases of all high quality types, from the ragamazing stylings of Paul Metzger to the 3-dimensionalusional gatefold trail blaze of Knife World they are all worth a gaze and a listen. And I'm not just saying that because it's my boyfriend's label. Not at all.

anyway, I never knew a time without the vinyl record album (or 45 or 10 inch) in my life and I have no intention of ever doing so. More bands are cranking it out now, the re-issues never stopped coming. When you've got Animal Collective (tevs you think of their outputs) cracking the billbored 100 with a vinyl only release...vindication.

Very good info.. thanks. If you're planning a visit to San Francisco in the future you should check out Amoeba Records on Haight St. near GG Park.; once a bowling alley now a sprawling and humongous record store. This place will blow your mind and plan on spending a few hours there. They have two other stores, one in Berkeley (not as big) and one in Hollywood.

Yes, vinyl prices are market based and ebay distorts 'Meat World' market economics. In the end you can get what you can get, based on whom you market your product to and what the market will bare.

I wouldn't look at price guides as much as auction results since any original VU album in excellent condition is pretty scarce and the price could vary wildly depending on who is in the (virtual) room.

As a record collector I care about having an absolute first pressing but mostly I care about getting an early pressing in near mint condition. Sometimes these slightly later pressings fetch near (or at least half) first press prices if they are in near mint condition.

The Osbourne "Official Price Guide To Records" is the industry standard and it has details about the record in question. Available at most big chain book stores. The one I used to find your record was issued in 1997 so you might think pricing would have changed, and it might have, but it won't be much different. I've seriously collected since 1981 and bought a lot of guides and set up at some conventions. Your "Everything..." title is a bootleg and the original had a peelable banana sticker, 500 issued. It was reissued with a painted banana. That information comes from a guide called "Hot Wacks Book XV (The Last Wacks)", a bootleg guide, no pricing just data, and you won't find the book in normal places if you find it at all.

That's a low value. I don't know why I keep luggin' this thing around the country with me. The record store was next to or close to the No Bar and Grill rock place in Muncie. Is there a place where you can get the run numbers for this records; torso/non-torso etc.. Thanks for the information, maybe the market will respond more positively in the future... I have a VU Vinyl Boxed set called: "Everything You’ve Ever Heard about the Velvet Underground." I bought this at "Peaches" in BR in 1984. Appears to be a bootleg release, but I haven't seen the songs on any other release to date. This BS has a lot of LR work prior to the VU. I don't really follow the collector’s aspect to my stuff, but I think this is somewhat rare. The condition is probably G->VG, but I did play this one for some tim
