Breaking Up 45rpm Box Sets

Recommended Posts

I noticed recently that the Chess & Capitol Box sets are being bought, & sold as individual 45's, same as some did with the Numero & other box sets.

You can do what you want with em once you've bought em, but to sell them on at £40 a pop for one 45 is a blatant rip off & some unsuspecting people will fall for this...the box sets are only £52 ish, depending where ya get em FFS....so people, do not encourage these thieves, buy the whole box ya self, it'll only be another £12 or summat....

Well said Russ.

Saw a post in 'Sales' this morning of one seller trying to jump on the band wagon and rip some poor unsuspecting soul of to the tune of £40 for Etta James, and omitting to mention that this was a new release.

Hopefully buyers will do a little research before stumping up their hard earned before splashing out on one disc when they can the whole box set for a tenner more.

Easiest way to stop those tricky dealers splitting these "boxes" is to not buy those ready made northern soul look alike packages in the first place. That way those "record" companie$ will lose interest on issuing such gadgets in the future. And like so no more rip off splittings... :P

Selling the records separately isn't ripping anyone off though.  I know very well I can buy a box set but I only want one track, George Kirby, so I'm happy to pay £30 for that because the rest of the records wouldn't get played cos I've either already got them or don't need them.

Some people love the scene but some love money more Russ!!  That's the mantra that comes into my head everytime I see these stories..........

 

Cheers,

Shop around, and you can get each box set for £40 at What Records.

It's not just box sets.  As soon as any new release on a 45 is out they are bought by some and sold for two or three times the original price.  The Ola Onanule "Soultown"45 is up for sale on here at 20 quid when it can be bought for less than half that elsewhere online.

Just got a Capitol set off there. Cheapest going but postage is fairly high.

Listening to the Alexander Patton track propelled me to buy, fabulous record and worth the money just for that one.
