Top 5 rarest cd's in your collection

Recommended Posts

There's probably one or several threads like this, but what the hell . :)

 

I'm intrested to know which the 5 rarest cd's in your collection are and what you payed for them (and also where you bought them, if you remember!). I'm not one of those big time collectors who spends a fortune on eBay for certain cd's; mainly because I can't afford it. So mostly I tend to look in used cd shops, and other less-known websites for oop cd's. This is of course a thrill because you know that sooner or later the ocassional rare gem will turn up. :P

 

So anyway, here's my top 5:

 

1. Karo-Heavy Birthday ($50, tradera.se)

2. Vengeance - We Have Ways To Make You Rock in original pressing ($20, Sweden Rock Festival '04)

3. Madison - Best In Show, japan cd ($42, eBay)

4. FM - Indiscreet ($13, tradera.se)

5. Any of the following (don't know which one's the most scarce...):

 

Giuffria - Silk+Steel in original pressing ($25, eBay)

Lionheart - Hot Tonight ($18, record fair)

Mama's Boys - Growing Up The Hard Way ($9, used cd shop)

Signal - Loud & Clear ($20, used cd shop)

Skagarack - S/T ($25, eBay)

Veto - Carthago, scratch records ($6, record fair)

 

Ok, that's more like a top 10... but you get the idea. I'm looking forward to see what you've found!

 

Cheers

Hurricane - Take What You Want $3.00 (still got the sticker on it)

 

Stage Dolls - Commandos $6.00 used CD Shop

 

Vain - No Respect (Original) $8.00 (also still has sticker on jewel case)

 

Stone Fury - Burns like a Star (on Point Music Label) 6.00 used cd shop

 

Desperado - Bloodied, but Unbowed $40.00 Ebay (Wanted it Bad) By the way that is the most I have ever payed for a cd.

 

I was pretty lucky in that one of my good friends owned a Record store and was the first in the area to redeem used cds for cash. He saved out any cd he thought I might like. I would go into the store hand him my paycheck on Thursday and walk out with loads of cd goodness. He closed his shop about 6 years ago because the internet was killing his business

Don't have that much. I usually don't and haven't paid anything more than $15 (well, one time, for a Vinnie Vincent Remastered Version. Don't know anything yet about collecting rare stuffs then) for a used one. But about that 1st Avenue "Tears and Triumph", saw that still sealed for less than a dollar. Said less than a dollar 'coz it was from the Philippines. Maybe some of you collectors will consider that like a Russian-pressed-Not-for-Resale-Outside-of-Russia kind of CD. But its still a factory-pressed, silver-backed CD. Got a Tindrum "Cool, Calm... " exactly like that. For P15 and that can be, who knows?, 30 cents converted to dollar? BUT I'm not cheapening anyone's collection. Just my thought. PEACE!!!

Most of my rare stuff is on vinyl (or was, I recently sold Diamond Head - Lightning to the nations signed by the full band original private pressing for £150 and I got it for free plus Wnters Reign - the beginning CD I picked up for £15 very very recently and sold it on for £70).

 

I had a quick look at my CD'S and there's bits and bobs that I think would sell easy for more than I paid (original ArcAngel ...Angel e.t.c.)but I really don't pay such close attention as most of them I would never sell anyway. The ones I know would go for a fair bit after a quick look..

 

Aerosmith - Basico (5 track live E.P. released Spain only with initial copies of Big Ones...unreleased live tracks done for a radio station) £5 ebay seen it go for £50+ on occassion.

 

Ship of Fools - Forget the World/Out There Somewhere cost £25 probably get around £70

 

Porcupine Tree - XM (1.2 ) cost £12 go for around £50++

Porcupine Tree - XM2 cost £14 - watch it's price rise

 

Barbieri/Bowness - Flame cost £13 have no idea ... silly money to the right person.

 

Device - 22b3 original Chrysalis issue bought for £13 maybe ... dunno as it has been rerelased on another label since

 

UFO - Werewolves of London getting very hard to find seen it go for £40 cost me 11.99 when it came out.

 

UFO - Regenerator varies I sold a spare unopened copy for £35 but again around £12 when bought.

 

Vain - No Respect original Island release

 

John Waite - Mask of Smiles original EMI Japan release used to go for dumb money on ebay ...BUT YOU CANNOT SELL CLASS!!!!

 

Head East - A Different Kind of Crazy £15.99 probably go for around £30 - £40

 

Icon - An Even More Perfect Union signed by Dan Wexler...dunno how much it would go for

 

Beatnik Beatch - s/t (pre Jellyfish band) cost £7 get around £30 for the CD but I have the original At the Zula Pool on Vinyl on Industrial records and blue vinyl and apparently that's worth quite a bit.

 

No-Man - Lovesighs/Love Blows and Love Cries (2 on 1) £13 probably nearing the £40 mark on ebay

 

Ozric Tentacles - Ethereal Ceral Box set - cost £40 probaly go for between £70 - £100+

 

Aerosmith - Pandora's Toys ltd wooden case edition..dunno seen it at eil.com for £150 but probably cheaper on the Bay.

 

Continuum - s/t Steven Wilson out of P.Tree/No - man anything related to him especially ltd editions like this (1000 copies) go thru the roof.

 

 

A quick look ... not definative and another long boring post from yours truly :crazy:

Hi,

thanks for the nice comment on my list, i don't like to post like that normally as it comes across as bragging to some people and thats the last thing i wanted to do. I shouldn't really follow up your post with this reply as it's on the wrong board, but until i get to 25 posts i cannot post on there.

 

But anyway what would you pay for the winters reign. I have one opened and one still sealed?

 

thanks.

Scott.

This is kind of a tricky question. I don't always consider a CDs supposed value as an indication of how rare it is... or vica-versa. I believe most of my rarest CDs to be local indies that I've had for 20 years or more. This doesn't always translate to value... cuz many people/collectors haven't heard of many CDs in my collection, therefore the CD may not be as in demand. For example: most here have most likely never heard of Mommi I'm Scared, Honor Among Thieves (became SR-71), Brian Jack, Rob Fahey, or Mystic Force. I'm not sure what the monetary values of all these are... but if I was to have to replace some of these, I would be hard pressed to be able to do so.

 

Guess I didn't really answer the question... but thats my take on it. :)

Hi, yes, I was a bit worried myself that my original post here would come of as bragging. Of course that was not my intention at all. I only wanted to see what other collectors had been lucky enough to find. And indeed, this turned out to be a very intresting tread. :)

 

I'll send you a PM concerning the Winter's Reign CD.

 

Thanks for the reply!

I don't have much rare stuff. The one that pops to mind is the Honor Among Thieves "Grow" cd. These guys got signed and changed their name to SR-71. Great cd. A few of the tunes made it onto "Now You See Inside".

Hi Jez,

 

Just checked the auction - sorry about the Treat CD!!!

 

There's a copy of the No-Man up on ebay right now here's the link to it let's see what it goes for (already £12.50 with over 5 days to go)

 

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...4747791711&rd=1

 

I watched a copy go for £34 last year so this might go for more dunno.

 

The Barbieri / Bowness CD you never see for sale BUT a few months back there was one on Amazon sellers (you know on the right hand side where you can order it maybe for less off various folk either new or 2nd hand) and they were asking £75 and that has been sold and there are now 2 buyers waitng for a copy. I still would'nt sell it though coz I like the CD.

I never have found any big ticket items and I'm not willing to shell out big $$$'s on ebay but a few I have come across include:

 

Kinki Stunt - S/T (found one for $4.00 and a second a few weeks later for .50 cents

 

Kick Axe - Vices $5.99

 

Vain - No Respect (Island original) $36.00 on ebay (the most I've ever spent on a cd) Naturally the reissue has caused a drop in value of the originals.

 

Spread Eagle - S/T $16.00 Ebay

 

Unruly Child - S/T $4.00

 

Faster Pussycat - Belted, Buckled and Booted $1.00

 

Eyes - S/T $2.00

 

Wildside - Under The Influence $1.00 (after I bought one on Ebay for $18.00)

 

X-Sinner - Peace Treaty $1.00

 

Smashed Gladys - Social Intercourse (traded a Twisted Sister - Come Out And Play for it)

Nick

I have the No Man -Loveblows/Lovecries 2 dics and very excellent it is aswell - didn't know it was worth that much. I also have the Barbieri/Bowness - Flame cd aswell which I really like. Quality stuff all round.

 

Hi Jez,

 

Just checked the auction - sorry about the Treat CD!!!

 

There's a copy of the No-Man up on ebay right now here's the link to it let's see what it goes for (already £12.50 with over 5 days to go)

 

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...4747791711&rd=1

 

I watched a copy go for £34 last year so this might go for more dunno.

 

The Barbieri / Bowness CD you never see for sale BUT a few months back there was one on Amazon sellers (you know on the right hand side where you can order it maybe for less off various folk either new or 2nd hand) and they were asking £75 and that has been sold and there are now 2 buyers waitng for a copy. I still would'nt sell it though coz I like the CD.

There ya go 12 hours after I posted the above it's up to £30 still over4 days to go yet :popcorn:

Dunno what's rare in my collection, in Holland it's all pretty rare... I got X-sinner - Get It after a long search, but that one's maybe very easily found somewhere else... Don't think I have anything special. I do have a few cool vinyl Picture Discs. DOn't know about them, but I have Stryper - To Hell With The Devil including the poster, Stryper Interview and Cinderella - Night Songs pic disc

Most of my rare stuff is on vinyl (or was, I recently sold Diamond Head - Lightning to the nations signed by the full band original private pressing for £150 and I got it for free plus Wnters Reign - the beginning CD I picked up for £15 very very recently and sold it on for £70).

 

I had a quick look at my CD'S and there's bits and bobs that I think would sell easy for more than I paid (original ArcAngel ...Angel e.t.c.)but I really don't pay such close attention as most of them I would never sell anyway. The ones I know would go for a fair bit after a quick look..

 

Aerosmith - Basico (5 track live E.P. released Spain only with initial copies of Big Ones...unreleased live tracks done for a radio station) £5 ebay seen it go for £50+ on occassion.

 

Ship of Fools -  Forget the World/Out There Somewhere cost £25 probably get around £70

 

Porcupine Tree - XM (1.2 ) cost £12 go for around £50++

Porcupine Tree - XM2 cost £14 - watch it's price rise

 

Barbieri/Bowness - Flame cost £13 have no idea ... silly money to the right person.

 

Device - 22b3 original Chrysalis issue bought for £13 maybe ... dunno as it has been rerelased on another label since

 

UFO - Werewolves of London getting very hard to find seen it go for £40 cost me 11.99 when it came out.

 

UFO - Regenerator varies I sold a spare unopened copy for £35 but again around £12 when bought.

 

Vain - No Respect original Island release

 

John Waite - Mask of Smiles original EMI Japan release used to go for dumb money on ebay ...BUT YOU CANNOT SELL CLASS!!!!

 

Head East - A Different Kind of Crazy £15.99 probably go for around £30 - £40

 

Icon - An Even More Perfect Union signed by Dan Wexler...dunno how much it would go for

 

Beatnik Beatch - s/t (pre Jellyfish band) cost £7 get around £30 for the CD but I have the original At the Zula Pool on Vinyl on Industrial records and blue vinyl and apparently that's worth quite a bit.

 

No-Man - Lovesighs/Love Blows and Love Cries (2 on 1) £13 probably nearing the £40 mark on ebay

 

Ozric Tentacles - Ethereal Ceral Box set - cost £40 probaly go for between £70 - £100+

Hey Nick, you Icon cd goes for $40-$50 on Ebay. Worth keeping instead, I think. Good stuff.......

 

Later

Hey Nick,

Is a rare one indeed, although all the re-issued CDs were signed copies. Why anyone would ever want to sell this disc is beyond me though. I have the original tape from 1987, which is probably ultra-rare and isn't ruined by the average bonus tracks on the end, like the CD is.

 

I have a few rarities:

 

WEST OF SUNSET - S/T

REFUGEE - Burning from the Inside...

ATLANTIC - Power

SIMON SAYS - Spin This

ICON - Right Between the Eyes

JOJO - S/T

YAYA - II

TIME GALLERY - Both albums

EAST COAST - S/T

HURRICANE - All albums

SKAGARACK - All albums

I have to say Tim I think it's the best Icon did after Night of the Crime..I wasn't keen on Right Between the Eyes (which I still think I have) or the Live Bootleg release (which even got sold...unthinkable!!!) but the title did live up to the sound.

    • Yeah, and with the January releases by H.e.a.t, Passion & GOK it looks like the new year is going off with a bang 
    • Hopefully a very nice start to the new year. I'm looking forward to it. 
    • Yeah, I remember the dude from LSD. I don't know about his life after LSD, but seems an odd choice as a first choice producer (even odder after hearing this album).  And yeah, I've never heard the other name either. I'm thinking, after this, that's for a very, very, very, VERY good reason. 
    • I've never seen Def Leppard or Poison, so their set lists would still be fresh to me. Poison only play 8 songs, though? That's soft. I have friends who have seen Def Leppard on recent visits to Australia and they also said they were still very good.  Anyway, I don't for a second think this'll make it to Aussie shores.  I have seen Motley Crue a few years back (possibly on one of their last ever Aussie shows - one of them...). I enjoyed it 'cause I had great seats and I just loved seeing them, but Vince's every 10th word left a little to be desired. 
    • I know, I know. We all know the answer but still I have to ask: So what happened to the "Cessation of Touring Contract" by the Crue?
    • Whoah... much better than I expected before clicking on them. Reminds me vocally of a lighter version of Lizzy Borden crossed with Rob Moratti. I'm going to have to track this one down.
    • from various internet sources: TYGERS OF PAN TANG will release their new album, “Ritual”, next Friday, while this Japanese edition including a bonus track appeared today. This is the band’s second recording by the current Tygers lineup, recorded with the help of renowned Søren Andersen, most recently known for his role as Glenn Hughes’s guitarist. Mastering done by Harry Hess (Harem Scarem). Tygers Of Pan Tang is a legendary band with some legendary albums, but I’m dare to say “Ritual” is one of their best. There’s a classic melodic hard rock feel all over the record, with some irresistible riffing, powerful grooves and catchy choruses. The mastermind here is original member, guitarist Robb Weir. The band’s current phase proves as formidable as its heyday, with longtime drummer Craig Ellis, vocalist Jacopo Meille, bassist Gavin Gray and guitarist Micky Crystal. “Ritual” wastes no time in stampeding the listener with the bursting “Worlds Apart,” one of the heaviest tunes on the album. Fair warning though – the straight forward chorus can stick in your mind for weeks, like a modern day version of “Gangland.” This isn’t the only instance on “Ritual,” this is an album chock full of hook laden rockers. “Destiny” slides in and the ride continues with a soulful voice. The pounding percussion is back and the riff are melodic, precise. The lyrics are thoughtful, and well written, and do tell a story, unlike many of these so-called hits of today in those other genres that just repeat over and over again. Slipping into the triple-twist of the steam train you’re on, comes, “Rescue Me“. There’s a simple riff and hook that becomes infectious, and still has you in its clutches. The vocals, clear and understandable, will have you singing along before you realize you’re doing it. The track that will “Raise Some Hell” is definitely the hidden gem on the record. This has got to be a live track used to get the crowd worked into a frenzy. Fast-paced, and rockin’ as hell. Screaming vocals, a rocket train paced guitar, and drums to match. If this song doesn’t get you off your backside and have your fist-pounding, then shut off the record and go back to your BackStreet Boys, because you’re listening to the wrong music! As this roller coaster continues, you reach the point where you just don’t wanna get off yet, and hope the rest is just as exciting. Luckily, you would be right. “Spoils Of War” might be the most melodic song of the bunch, but this midtempo still rocks hard and the solo kills. Masterfully played track. After a few more thrills, and twists, you know the ride is gaining its way to the final gate, but don’t take the safety bar off just yet. “The Art Of Noise” has yet another trick that will have you raising your fists into the air, and trying to catch your breath once again. Hang on, because you still have to “Sail On” until the end. Maybe not the most exciting part of this ride, but still an effective end. Clear concise vocals and equally as good playing from the rest of the Tygers are ever-present here. So sit back, and enjoy this last bit of this “Ritual” and to hell with keeping your arms and legs inside the ride at all times. “Ritual” may be the bast sounding Tygers album since 1981’s Spellbound, but don’t take me wrong, it’s still a fresh new album that stands on its own. You couldn’t ask for a more beautifully produced album. Presenting a top notch mix and crystal clear recording, the use of modern technology pays homage to the band’s legacy without succumbing to a thin lifeless sound. And songwriting is just as strong, as each musician performance. One of the best classic rock / traditional hard / melodic albums of the year. Raise those fists, and enjoy. Highly Recommended Tracklist: 01 – Worlds Apart 02 – Destiny 03 – Rescue Me 04 – Raise Some Hell 05 – Spoils of War 06 – White Lines 07 – Words Cut Like Knives 08 – Damn You! 09 – Love Will Find a Way 10 – Art of Noise 11 – Sail On JAPAN BONUS TRACK: 12 – Don’t Touch Me There (2019 Version) Robb Weir – Guitars Craig Ellis – Drums Jack Meille – Vocals Gavin Gray – Bass Micky Crystal – Guitars   BUY IT www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/MICP-11527    
    • Well, I can't wait for it.
    • I won't as long as my mom is taking me down there! I know they're great still- this will be my first concert though 😋
