RE: Value Of 1970s Direct to Disk Recordings

I personally love the Direct-To-Disc recordings. I have hundreds of them, sealed & open.
After years of collecting and finally selling all my audio equipment I have no more
of a need for my collection. Also, the longer I store them the condition keeps going
downhill. I have been finding out that the value of the Direct-To-Disc albums,
for the most part for the exception of a few, are not worth as much as I feel that they are.
In the Audiophile circles they seem to sell for a little bit more let's say at venues like
Denver's Audiofest but on EBay they seem to go for a lot less money. Some that
I have seen are down right cheap !!!!! When I realized this I was depressed and
surprised. Half Speed recordings have appreciated like I thought they would and
are selling for some real decent amounts.
