    Prices are a bit all over the place on Discogs, but you should be able to find one there for £20-30 inc. postage.

    Thanks Vinny... Lots on Discogs but would prefer to source a copy from a fellow Fishie if possible. I've found Discogs to be a bit of a lottery with regards to condition and descriptions tbh.

    I haven't bought huge numbers via Discogs, but the problem seems to be the coarseness of the grading system. Buy mint or near mint and I have never been disappointed - many mint state unopened/still sealed. Go down the scale beyond that at your peril - I bought a V Good last week but the many quiet sections were full of random and varying hiss and for 2-3-4 rev's on the end of the last track a scratch produced a high-pitched squeak and a pop. That is in the post back to the seller....

    I have an original press if you’re still looking - prob only played once or twice and thus looks in great condition.

    I've had a mixed bag ranging from "mint" to "bin fodder". Now I'll only buy on Discogs from sellers with 100% seller ratings earned over many transactions, and I'll only buy items rated at mint. As well as being disappointing, it's an absolute PITA to have the hassle of repacking records and returning them.(even more so at the moment).
    Records I've bought from fellow Forum members (enthusiasts), and of course Tony L,
    have always arrived in better than described condition, timely and more than fairly priced!!

    Well it takes all sorts I suppose, I've bought loads of stuff from Tony L and couldn't fault anything, all excellent value and well described however I did buy two Blue Nile records from a fellow member here, which were both described as mint mint, and all I can say is that the guy must have a funny interpretation of the word mint means, at best one of the records, which is about 40 years old now, was G G or practically non playable/ruined the other one was fine and none of them were cheap but I kept them cause both are super rare and I had sold my original copy of the wrecked one for buttons about fifteen years when I moved house.
