Hi everyone! I'm really glad to find this site, sometimes I wonder what happened to people who like real music, and collecting it on vinyl. Nice to know there are some left!
So of course I'm a vinyl junkie :D. Luckily, Manifest, my favorite local music store, has really started picking up on their record section again. In fact, I just found out this morning that a record I bought there (sealed too!) for two bucks is worth much more! I bought R.E.M.'s 12" Reckoning about a year ago. I was thinking about picking up some more R.E.M. records from there to sell on ebay and looked up how much Reckoning was worth in case I found another. I kept reading about the original 1984 release, which mine was, but in a purple vinyl. Mine didn't appear to be so, so I payed no attention. Then I read something about only being seen when held up to the light - and sure enough! My $2 record is the original purple edition that I've seen going for 100-150. :D It's a good day today, isn't it?
