Gene, I don't know much about rareties, but why would somebody spend all that money on a record that has loads of surface noise?

I could understand if it was mint or even graded as excellent, but quote: "Sweet Memories" side plays VG, with more background noise at beginning 20 seconds than rest of record. Flip side is a killer deep ballad, but plays fair at best, without skips). Does that mean its bad all the way through or just the first 20 seconds???

Good point Ian - though I think a Mint one goes for near enough £1,000, so I guess someone who wants one, but probably can't afford to spend that, or (like me) doesn't want to (!!) sees it as an alternative.

I tap this in with 5 mins to go before the auciton closes, and it's now at about $309!!!

Still a rare record but 1 of the 3 copies was put back on ebay due to atimewaster to the best of my knowledge

Depends how bad you want it I suppose.

I had a stroke of luck on the bay a few months back with winning a TC Lee for £350. It was supposed to be VG but I love it to bits and although that was a lot for a record of that condition I'll never own a mint £750-£800 pounder (unless I win the jackpot) so thought 'its your only chance'.

It turned up looking f*cked vinyl wise, plays like its EX.......
