I traded in some vintage vinyl at Reckless Records a few years back, got hundreds of pounds in credit. Was not sure wha to go for - ended up getting this with some of the credit:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Catalogue-2009 ... B002LCOQTG

Much cheaper, I must say!

Anyway, at the time I thought - nice package, but will I really ever listen to it?

Turns out I play it all the time!!!!

Like now!!!!!!!!

And perhaps the most influential song on the album - it really sounds like the precursor to so many 80s synth band's efforts.

Does anyone remember this?

From a BCB discussion - 'Is there anything you really regret selling?'

Probably not helpful, but I find that stuff I sold ages ago has come down in price, often significantly, because of the more perfect market facilitated by the web.

For example, in 1987 I sold a few LPs via my LMG music business. These included two US pressing Kraftwerk albums, Ralph and Florian and Autobahn, to a Japanese collector for £100.00.

In 2018 terms, that is around £265.00. I can buy back both of those items from dicogs today for under £20.00 - Autobahn sold thousands in the US, and Ralph and Florian was a 1975 reissue cashing in on the former album's US success.

That is a nominal profit of £245.00. Now, if I had invested that money in Apple Computing shares in 1987, my personal assistant would be typing this post while I listened to the 1975 lineup of Kraftwerk playing live in my private auditorium with Carlsson, who I would have had flown in on my private jet.

Nearly a snap moment, but I went for the debt of the 80's synth bands at the last moment. You're spot on.

I bought this album when I was thirteen. Sadly, I found the second side to be a disappointment.

Now I find it equals, if not surpasses the other side...
