Last time it was $1301.00:

looks to be off to a good start. The shitty quality CD release doesn't look to be hurting it's price.

A little steep for my wallet. I only have two tracks by them, "2525" and "Electric Girl". I don't even know the record that's up for bid. Any info anyone?
I feel obligated to disclose that no matter how great anyone makes this sound, I will not be bidding on it. Too expensive.




We didn't sell a lot of records, but somehow we left an impression.

Generally regarded as the group's best effort: ( actually Steve Fields and a couple of guest musicians) 4 tracks, all good, and a couple that are staples of the minimal synth genre.

My interest is purely monetary. I paid it's current selling price ($600.00) about a year ago for my copy, and I'm just seeing how my investment is doing.

I found a DL of this a few years back and was unimpressed. To my ears the music on this record doesn't live up to the hype.

Well out of my budget but certainly has peaked my interest.

Forgive my morbid curiosity with this record...I find it fascinating that even with the CDs release, the vinyl still commands a decent buck.

I thought I read 500 somewhere, but I could be wrong.

The price begs that there were not that many pressed....its not like they were a big influence on alot of other bands...a real curio. (oh and thanks again for a copy of this 8-6)

You're welcome...hope you're enjoying it. This ep might be second only to the Transparent Illusion lp in terms of collectibility to those into minimal synth.

$1K this time...I can't for the life of me figure out a pattern to the prices paid for this in the past year. This one looks to be in better condition than one that sold for $1300.00 a while ago.
