It wasn't common for artists to have the balls to sell vinyl for a 50%+ markup back then and FtM sat around getting dusty for years because of it. It was only $25 when it would go on clearance. A lot went on clearance. I mean, its subjective how people feel about the cost of something against their own comfort level in spending. I didn't find $35 for a 3xLP to be astronomical. I just didn't buy it because as at the time I had a phobia about spending money on things for myself that were not necessities like clothes, etc. And yeah, it was on clearance from time to time for less. I don't recall a ton of 3xLP releases and their prices around that time. General price points of different formats had a lot to do with the popularity of the band and the size of the label as they tend to today. Also different retailers had many different prices for the same product often. I remember different stores had OP copies of Amputechture priced at anywhere from $17 to $30 between 2006 and 2009.
