Anybody want a sealed original Alive II US vinyl?

Post by Under The Rose »

There’s currently a listing on eBay which people are bidding like crazy on. Over $400 already with 5 days to go. And it has big cut corner and the shrink is in a pretty rough state.

I have a much nicer copy (sealed with hype sticker) that I’d be willing to part with for less than that, including registered shipping anywhere in the world.

PM me if interested and I’ll share pics.

The reason why this particular Alive II is going for over $400 is because it's a "sealed" error copy - or misprint with the 3 extra songs listed on the cover: Take Me, Hooligan & Do You Love Me.

The seller obviously doesn't know or realise this as it isn't mentioned in the description, but I bet he's wondering what's going on?!. :)

Oh yes, good spot! That could go pretty high then!

Basically it’s a hen’s tooth.

:thumleft: Yes. As you said, its got a big cut corner and the shrinkwrap looks rough, but as it's an error copy & 'sealed' to a degree :) it'll go higher I'm sure.

If it actually had those songs on it instead of just being listed on the back...maybe it would be worth paying ripoff for. But just being a misprint...not for no $900!

I have a question. I’ve never collected vinyl before, started thinking about it recently.
So there’s a 1977 German issue of Alive II on sale in a antique shop in my town. Open but in good condition. Can someone tell what’s the value of such vinyl might be?

Probably €10
