  1. I would pass on this, especially because of the postage cost to the USA. If you just want to listen it's probably OK but if you were more interested in a display piece you should pass.

  2. My first thought is you overpaid but actually it is hard to find a clean copy of a classic title from the early 70's, and if you ever decide to sell it it's value will only increase.

    As far as 'original' vs. 'repress' I will use book collecting terms:

    The plum/maroon label versions are the 'first editions' - the one with the turquoise cover is a 'first edition, first state'.

    You copy with the green and red label is a 'second edition' as JTM mentioned; it dates from early 1972 to 1975.

    I've got a 1971 World Tour t-shirt that I found at a second-hand store. I have no idea if it's an original or a reproduction. It has no tag on it anywhere, which makes identification more difficult. I assume it's a repro, but I have no idea.

    It's actually a counterfeit.


    I don't know of any legitimate 1971 tour shirts.

    Does anyone can point on the sound quality of the 4LP bootleg set called The destroyer that was released by Smilin' Ears label? I have a chance to buy this for just couple of $ and wonderin' if it's worth of a penny.

    It's an audience recording - I would say if it's in like new condition you can pay $60-70 and be able to sell it at a small profit if you find you don't like it.

    Also if the price is literally 2 dollars and you didn't snap it up you would be too stupid to write complete sentences so I suspect you are some type of bot.

  5. I have the original vinyl boots of the '77 Cleveland shows; 4/27 was titled 'Destroyer' and 4/28 was 'The Destroyer'. I don't remember which was released first but they were not issued by the same 'company'. It's too much of a coincidence to think they just happened to give them the same titles; maybe there was something about the setup in that stadium that evoked the term.
    The Maryland and the other Cleveland shows were just the bootleggers not wanting to bother thinking up a new title.

  6. I disagree that large and xxl are the most common of any authentic shirts from the 1970's - I would say 99.9% of 'vintage' shirts sold online sized XL or larger were produced recently.

    The 1975 tour shirts were the first sold as souvenirs; any earlier than that were only issued to roadies and security, etc. and are very rare.

  7. The best advice I can give you is don't get in a bidding war or overpay for records in crappy condition. I suggest using site like collectorsfrenzy.com, gripsweat.com, and popsike.com, and use those prices as a guideline for what you should pay. I highly recommend Robert Godwin's collectors guide from 1990;  his later ones concentrate on CDs.

    for example, here is a search for 'Badge Holders':


    As you can see there are several different versions and the prices range from cheap to outrageous; that $641 one and that $18 one are the same exact edition,  and even a newbie like you can surmise whoever paid $600+ for this is a moron. If you want a top-condition copy the going rate will be in the $60 - $80 range but if you're patient, you can eventually find one for around $40, or if you can live with one in lesser condition, $20 or less.


    Fortunately for you the bubble burst on the booleg LP market recently and you can amass quite a few nice ones at reasonable prices.

    Also I can see you're familiar with Ebay but you need to check out Discogs too.
