No, the girlfriend would never forgive me.

I have that one (the Japanese bootleg dicussed in the listing). I shared it at the group. It's not completely "unlistenable," but it definitely could be much better.
It's Scepter Studios NYC 4/25/66 (the same date and location) and has Heroin, Venus in Furs and Waiting For the Man. Sadly, European Son is missing on my copy.

not necessarily rich, perhaps just ballsy/smart.

I can just imagine how well this purchase would go over in my house.

"Oh, hi, honey. Been to the record store today, I see. What this time?"

"Oh, just another Velvet Underground album."

"Let's see. God, this looks like crap. A handwritten label. Hope you didn't pay too much.... by the way, I got a call from the bank today about a second mortage we're taking out for something like 18,000. What's up with that?"

"Oh, nothing..."

Yeah, there has been so much ink spilled on this thing that I have no doubt this is it.
Successfully faking natural aging like that is a challenge too.

True. I saw those. Still, I'd be really nervous plunking down this kind of change online for something I haven't even seen or touched.

This is truly insane. Whoever ends up buying this overpriced piece of plastic is more pathetic than I am.

i just read one of the articles where it sez the president of a record company authenticated the thing.

edit: this one

and again, im sure whoever is buying the "overpriced piece of plastic" is planning to make some fat profits from the investment.

Wow, I'd never heard of it. The person who buys will probably use it as an investment. How much do you reckon record companies would pay to release it?

yes, seventyfive cents. insa nity folks! insanity!

either way I got my all time favorite UNSaNE song (Vandal X, on seven inch vinyl) for sixtyfive cents on EBAY!
 



whoever buys this VU acetate is one dedicated mo-fo.

I guess if I was an attroney like the ones I work for and I billed $360/hr to my clients, I would go insane for a one of a kind sonic youth bad moon rising acetate. or a daydream nation.

i wish i had the money for it but what pisses me off most is the fact is that only one fan is going to have it and will be greedy so that no one else can hear it. If i got the record I would get the music re-released so everyone can enjoy it not just some elitist record collector.

The bidding has gone up to 21K now...

Damn, another week left and already at 25 g's. I wonder if this will be the kind of thing where some fan that doesn't have the money to buy it will jack up the price and just not pay for it. I could never imagine paying 25,000 for a freakin' record.

I wanna meet the person that sold it for 75 cents.

I have the continuous urge to place one bid on it just to say that I did, but I wouldn't like to end up like what noisemachine said. Once I was at an auction and I bid $50.00 for a video card, and I won, and it turned out it was a really bad model and I didn't want it, so I had to go through the embarrasment of saying "oh...I didn't know that it was that bad". Good times.

A 1966 Velvet Underground acetate LP is a valuable collector's item and should be kept in the best condition as possible and the best way to do this is to wrap it in a towel.

I'm gonna get high now.
