Honestly talk privately to Dave, Ralph, this is not the place for anyone to get anywhere with Dave Bullmer. Oh and I don't disagree with you once you have sold something that's it. If it goes up or down in value it's your profit or loss. As you said dubbing your LP's making your own compilations everyone has done it was red herring and just my way of telling people that the pot is calling the kettle black. Well everyone's done it, as we all know do we not.

Folkiedave well I did mean it when I said thank you for telling me about that website. I did and do realize that it would be quite easy to inflate prices just by offering LP's at inflated prices whilst selling them for less to the gullible else ware. Things are only worth what people will pay for them and you did point that out a different way true but that's the fact.

My thank you was because I checked the price of one of my LP's The Hermit, Mountain Ash Band. I bought it as it was launched in the Queens Hall, Ilkley. (You have done the sound there for a concert Ralph a long time ago but you have.) The reason I looked was because one of the Artists asked me about ten years ago if I still had my copy. When I said yes she said oh we haven't this dealer came to the door and offered us 20 each for them! Three months went by and I ran into Linda again "Have you still got your copy of The Hermit"? Say's Lynda "he's now offering 40". My reply was the same as it was three months later when The Hermit Album was spotted at a record fair priced at 300. That reply was well I'm still not selling it because it's a reminder of lot's of friends and the good times that we had.

Am I someone that hoards things? I don't think so it's just that some things mean more to people than others or they would not have sold what they now wish they had. Mind you I have got two copies so I could sell that one and buy a record deck so I can play all my other Treasured Albums.
