Yeah, 23 grand is absolutely ridiculous. I have half this stuff on mp3 which I downloaded for free.

Some people would suggest that the quality of MP3 is poor, when compared to an original recording pressed onto CD. Having heard SHN, I would agree. Which is not to say I never listen to MP3s anymore.

Of course, there is no guarantee that this guy's collection is not mostly MP3s converted back to Wav anyway.

I don't know you, and you don't know the half of it.

Well, I'm old. I've been a fan since '83, so even back in the 80's I was able to get U2 and U2-related vinyl (like the "Do They Know Its Christmas" 45 rpm single).

Then, in the early 90's, when I was in grad. school, my U2 fanaticism kicked in (perhaps because I was in grad. school and needed an outlet). So slowly over the MANY years I was in school, I gathered U2 items. This was before the days of easily accessible .mp3 files. As such, I have many "original" bootleg CDs as well as other truly rare CDs.

That said, if I put all of these items together, would they be worth $23K? Hardly. I mean, this guy was charging $160/CD! Divide that by 10 ($16/CD) and then you get more realistic numbers. If he was selling all of that for $2K, then, while still a bit high, at least it's reasonable.

Well, if Bill Gates suddenly decides that he's a huge U2 fan....

It's been relisted:

Only $9350 this time - but still about 10 times too much.


PS you can find much of what this guy's selling on my FTP for FREE!

I, too emailed him for "the list". What he's got is not rare at all, and def not worth 9K. I told him good luck and that he's probably got a $200-300 auction. Now that I think about it, it could go for 4, but still....that's just a *slight* bit less than what he's asking. BUT! If you do win...he'll throw in 11 LPs for free...and shipping is included!

So I don't think it's real fan...or he would have priced it a little less or not at all! just thought...peace ya all
