Won Out On These Buys {Big Time}

Recommended Posts

A while back i asked if anyone knew anything on a band call "Hands On The Wheel" in which no one did but the review sounded really good so i bided US$24.00 thinking an unknown band , second hand ,should get that for at least half the price and i was pissed off when someone else won it for US$24.50.

Two weeks later i got it on the German Ebay for US$ 7.90.

Sargant Fury's ,"Turn The Page" i had been waiting for ages to get ,but it would never come up so i got it through DISK HEAVEN in Japan {Mint condition , Jap Import with the book and obi strip} for US$14.50.

The next week , 2 came up on US Ebay, one the European copy , the other a Jap copy with the book so i watched to see what they ended up going for.

The European one went for US$ 24.00 and the Jap one i just got , went for US $41.00

So i saved US$ 43.10 on 2 CDS.

Boy i'm happy about that :banana:

Anyone else got a good deal story or even a bad deal story in which you saw the same CD you purchased , go for alot cheaper a bit later ? :drink:

Well, there's always the classic story 'bout reissues...I remember tracking down the CRAAFT debut years ago and paying an insane amount for that one...Well, 2 years later it was reissued and is cheap as hell now... :doh:

I remember when 21 GUNS, "Salute" album was first released and here in Australia you could only get it at that time on import so i paid the Aussie equivalent of US$ 25 to only see it two years time in the bargin bin for US$ 1.50.

Lost out bad then ! :angry:

When trying to get PBF Leather Boyz I would keep bidding up to $12 but kept getting outbid. Then finally I placed my bid on one and won it for $7.00 because no one else bid on it which I thought was odd. When I got it in the mail it turned out to be the Japanese import w/obi and booklet and everything mint. I still can't figure out why the guy didn't mention that but I was happy.


I was also bidding on Spread Eagle's s/t and always seem to get in a bidding war with Daddy Warbucks and would lose the auction even after bidding up to $24.00. Then one weekend there were 4 that ended right around the same time and I ended up winning one for $14.00 while another went for $23.00 just an hour later.


Shelling out almost $40 for Vain - No Respect seems kind of stupid now that it's been reissued but since it's one of my favs I guess it doesn't bother me that bad.

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.    
    • Vandenberg - Sin Chicago - The Chicago Story (2 CD) Megadeth - So Far, So Good, So What? (Expanded) The Allman Betts Band - Down to the River Mike Oldfield - Five Miles Out (Remaster) Buckingham & McVie - S/T Michael Hutchence - S/T Roxy Music - Stranded (Remaster) Echo & the Bunnymen - Reverberation  Echo & the Bunnymen - Evergreen (Expanded)
    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave
