Music As An Investment

    Is there any mileage in buying music as an investment and keeping it unopened before reselling on. I am thinking of stuff like the new Newspaper Radiohead album? Would it be worth putting 3 or 4 unopened copies on the shelf?

    I wish I had bought 19 Sandwell District albums, at £12 each, they immediately went on Discogs at £90 - £130 is it.

    Look at the mega queues at the shops on RSD limited specials that sell out in hours and are 'Bayed the same day at multiples of the price.

    The trick is knowing which ones will go up and those that end at 20p, and how long it will take for them to peak out there.

    Andrew, No, I neglected to go to a shop the day it came out is it.

    I have acquired a digital version by another route there, and then vinyls of the Test Sessions and samplers 1 & 2 previously there.

    RSD = Record Store Day, Yes?

    Yes is it,

    International Record Store Day, a yearly event celebrating the life of the physcial record shop.

    The vinyl specials of the 'collectible' groups & artists get gobbled up as soon as the shop opens on the day, leaving thin pickings for the more informal shopper there.
