I once had a #65 (as in 65th pressing) Dark side of the moon UQHR. Strangely after a break up it was left too close to a light bulb and warped beyond repair. I chased after that sound and found a #700 DSOM UQHRS on line back in 1997. Spent $350 and got one with surface noise! oh ell lesson learned.
Wow! I didn't know they were that expensive. I bought a brand new one about 10-years ago at a music store in Lexington, Ky for $25. It seems to be in perfect condition---no noise and no distortion. It came with foldouts and everything. I bought it because everyone was raving about it and I wanted to find out what all the commotion was about. After listening, I considered it a waste of 25-dollars. Oh, well. Such is life! ;-)
Hi John, don't forget I was referring to the MFSL UQHRs. The ones Mobile Fidelity produced in limited quantities. I've seen sealed copies go for $1,000+ last time I looked, but that was probably 10 years ago. I remember that prices went up after I bought that one.
"After listening, I considered it a waste of 25-dollars."
Would it have been a waste for less?
It's still an amazing album to many, including myself.
See ya. Dave
