Lucky for me I'm super immature and somewhat selfish, so the list remains.
So, here is one more I was able to check off the want list. Unity You Are One 7" on blue vinyl. Of course I have had the standard black versions both from Wishingwell (2nd press with "color" labels) and the Indecision Records repress for years, but there is nothing like pining over the one version you never think you will ever get.
I think I got really lucky with this one. I had this record as a saved search item where I would get an email from ebay whenever it would show up. One day it did and I started tracking the progress. I just assumed the price would start rising after a few days. The weird thing was it didn't. I got curious and did a regular search for it through the normal category/front page method. For whatever reason, when I did that, it wouldn't show up. I refined the method a couple times and still nothing.
So I let this sucker play out, set a snipe bid and won it relatively easy. The price wasn't so much an issue as I feel I didn't have to compete with as many people. Plus this record doesn't pop up that often as they are fairly rare.
I don't think anyone knows how many were pressed on blue. I have read on other blogs and lists that there may be as little as 70 pressed. That doesn't make sense, but even if it was 100, that is still pretty damn rare.
Marcus's copy he picked up not too long ago, this one only came with the one insert.
Well done, dude. A good one to cross off the list for sure. I'm kinda surprised you even have anything left on your list though, given the number of big hitters you have crossed off in the last couple of years!ReplyDelete
By the way, I'd be binning that stupid clear plastic dust sleeve thing ASAP. I hate those things.
