Oh, come one. Their theme song is a perfect song and recording quality etc is exactly the DIY quality you could expect from a DIY release, no more or less.
I completely agree with what you say, but it’s just where I find it hard to let go this notion. I think we’re all here because we truly love that kind of music, and that’s just the reason why we dig obscure stuff and try to find the next record that we’ll love so much. Then you meet the laws of supply and demand, which leads sometimes in my mind to such paradox: do I have to pay that amount of money for this particular record? That’s where love meets the market rules... Loving and owning, you know, that kind of philosophical questionmordred wrote: ↑Thu Feb 04, 2021 11:37 pmYou need to let go of the notion that quality of music is supposed to justify a price tag. It doesn’t. Supply and demand justifies a price tag. Question number 1 is do you want a record at all, and if yes are you prepared to pay what it costs.
My favorite record of all time is Painkiller, but if I lost my copy I would quite naturally not be prepared to pay anywhere near the most I ever paid for a record just because I know of no better music. If I lost my Redeemer or my Commander I would be prepared to pay top dollar again although they aren’t as good.
If I lost my copy of The Unknown, now that would be just way too scary!
I have a Ronnie and the red caps conquest 7”, broken but playable (with an old stylus!)!
