A mono copy of Deja Vu (which no doubt sounds terrible; I had one once) went for $1200 on ebay a few years back!
Oh, but it’s an auction, so I guess that makes it all right. The seller didn’t set the price, the market did.
But the market sets our prices too. We can’t sell a record for more than what the customer is willing to pay. What exactly is the difference?
Man, I sure would love to get $4k+ for one of our killer Hot Stamper pressings of Deja Vu. I guarantee our copy sounds a whole lot better. And the music is the same, right? So what did you get for your additional three thousand dollars?
A nice record to put on the shelf.
Which you could get from us for three thousand dollars less.
