Welcome Licorice Pizza (LP) lovers! Setup guides and Vinyl FAQ.

What is the most you have ever paid for an LP?

The Brahms/Rattle BPO is going for $100 per LP (it is a 6 LP set), so that's $100 per LP. Of course, the Electric Recording Company is issuing their reissues at, I believe, $150 per LP.

The cost of my vinyl purchases have been all over the map, ranging from .99 for the complete Toscanini Beethoven set, and the same for the Boulez Parsifal, and of course many LPs have been given to me, to all the way up to $49 for an excellent copy of the direct to disc version of Just Friends by the LA4. This knocked me out the first time I heard it, and I felt like I had to have it. I think I paid around that for a sealed original copy of the Prokofiev piano concerto #2, played by Frager.

But that kind of expenditure is rare for me. I buy both new and used, and personally would rather pay a little more to ensure that what I am getting is in good shape. In fact, I would rather pay say 4.99 for a blemish free disc, than have to buy two .99 copies, where one of them is flawed, but you don't know it until you clean and play. I clean everything I buy, of course, so the time and effort is worth something.

How about you? What is the most expensive LP you have acquired?
