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:

Cool, although I won't be selling mine. I was playing it in the car the other day and it really is a great album.

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.

    • Should not be called Santa Cruz. Almost like a Techno or Industrial sound to it. Feels like we lost Dynazty to a heavier sound and now Santa Cruz. What is happening to the glam hardrock scene that was so strong a few years back?

    • Press release: Art Of Melody Music & Burning Minds Music Group are excited to announce all the details of "Begin Again", new official studio album by Italian melodic hard-rockers, Wheels Of Fire. After two successful releases, that received great feedback from fans and critics all around the world (the debut album "Hollywood Rocks" reached #42 on the charts of renowned Japanese magazine, Burrn!), Wheels Of Fire are now back on the scene with what is going to be their strongest release so far, showcasing the noteworthy skills of a band at the top of its form. The new album includes experienced contributors, Pierpaolo "Zorro" Monti (Raintimes, Shining Line, Charming Grace) and Gianluca Firmo(Room Experience, Firmo), and offers an excellent mix of perfectly-balanced elements between the arena melodies unleashed in "Hollywood Rocks", and the prominent guitar work of "Up For Anything", featuring a bombastic and up-to-date sound thanks to the great mix and mastering work by Roberto Priori (Danger Zone, Raintimes, I.F.O.R., Alchemy). Frontman Davide "Dave Rox" Barbieri quotes: "Seven years have passed since the release of our second studio album, "Up For Anything". Seven long years where we never stopped writing new music, rehearsing together, playing live and believing in this band. This meant for us evolving both as artists and human beings, and this is something that inspired us to moving forward and creating this third official chapter. "Begin Again" represents a promising new beginning in our artistic career, that has been developed staying loyal to the sound and the style we all love: the great melodic rock music. I'm very proud of this work, and I can't really wait to share it to all the fans and friends around the world". "Begin Again" is scheduled for release on June 7, 2019 via Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group. A special personalized edition has been created by Outward Styles in a very limited quantity of 50 copies, and is available exclusively on the label's online shop, Rock Temple. CD graphics have been designed by Aeglos Art (Airbound, Raintimes, Michael Kratz, Alchemy, Firmo), while the CD booklet features introductory liner notes written by Marco Aimasso (Metal.it). The release will be celebrated with an exclusive live event on June 8, 2019 @ Dedolor Music Headquarter (Rovellasca - CO / ITALY), during the second awaited edition of the "Rock Temple Festival". Tracklist: 01. Scratch That Bitch 02. Lift Me Up 03. Tonight Belongs To You 04. Done For The Day 05. For You 06. Keep Me Close 07. Heart Of Stone 08. You'll Never Be Lonely Again 09. Another Step In The Dark 10. Call My Name 11. Can't Stand It 12.
