Collecting early production CD's - my perspective and some photos.

Recommended Posts

Couple from some garage sales this week-end- unfortunately Sweet Dreams is the US release not the Aussie JAPAN release (same disc, different artwork)

Its just two months off ten years since I started this thread and I have finally completed my AC/DC Japan for Oz first pressings set. The last couple took an age to track down but finally the last peice of the jigsaw, A flick of the switch, is now mine and the set of twelve is now complete.

Onya, Mondie.

 

I have not yet found any AC/DC Japan for Oz CDs in the wild, lo these many years. But I live in hope.

There was sombody who posted in this thread quite early on who found two on the same day! Not seen any other reports since, they must have been made in pretty small numbers for you to have not stumbled onto one in all your CD searching Geoff.

 

Edit: and I see Craig found one in the post at the top of this page :)

I found 4 ACca Daccas at once in a local garage sale a few months back - but the seller had been on Discogs and decided they were all $60 each (even though in pretty terrible, scratched up, well-played condition).

 

Left 'em...

Many people fail to appreciate the sharp difference in value based on condition, this is apparent in many record stores overpricing used vinyl from sought after artists in tatty condition. If they were heavily scratched $60ea would have been possibly too much especially from a private seller at a garage sale. I am chasing down the Albert first pressing records I dont have from AC/DC's Bon days, the price variance on these can be 5-10 fold depending on condition. Near Mint are rare and valuable, and probably better than money in the bank with the bonus that they sound fantastic.
