Post a PIC Of Your Collection (Band or Label ONLY)

Recommended Posts

I feel very lucky to have been in the right place at the right time for these circa releases...

 

When the releases went on sale on merchnow I was on vacation and was asleep, but my mom was up in our hotel room making a bunch of noise so I got up and went on the computer and they were up. People were saying how they stayed up all night refreshing and I just woke up and they were there. I felt good.

This recent Circa repress from HT was a nightmare. Go venture into that thread for a good example of how NOT to release a repress... Ugh

Yeah I'm glad I got it on merchnow and had it delivered to my door because the closest HT is an hour away and I'm not a fan of Hot Topic to begin with.

It was basically all online and the set release date was wrong then they just started putting them up at these weird hours with no warning so a bunch of us who really wanted them had to sit there for a few days refreshing and hoping that if they went up there was enough time to snag one. luckily I ended up getting them. I'll post a picture of my circa collection when my new ones get here.

I have no intention of ever selling mine, but do you think these represses will be worth a substantial amount one day like the originals? People seem to be buying 2 or 3 of each pressing.

It's circa, they're bound to go up in price because that's the way it is you know. especially with the flippers who bought 2-3+ extra ones just to sell on ebay for a higher value. they basically just cause inflation. you could probably find someone who doesn't know to buy it for as much as the flippers are selling it for but its just not cool to do that.

I know this isn't much in terms of a "collection", but I do have two of the more highly sought-after The Mars Volta albums (albeit one is a bootleg)...

2xLP, Album, Unofficial, Ltd

Mars Volta, The - Amputechture (Gold Standard Laboratories - GSL126) 2xLP, Album, Whi

The only two I don't have :-(

Holy Grail missing from this collection:

 

Rose EP

‎ (CD, EP, Ltd) only like 25 of these exist, Only one known photo online as well. Anyone have this?

 

Band doesn't get enough credit.  Really nice.  No Intuit from Romona Falls, though?  I don't know about that, but that album is worlds beyond Prophet in my books.  Either way, keep it up.

Haven't spun it yet, but the packaging is of superb quality!

I saw pictures in he other thread. Looks really damn legit. Is it nice and thick cover? Either way, I'm gonna get this. My vinyl collection would not be complete without it. Just hoping one pops up from a seller in the US
