I watched this auction and nearly put in a last second bid before coming to my senses. Half of me thinks I've been sensible and the other half thinks, Heck you only live once and it got away..

What do you guys think..?
Madness or determined collector..?
Do you know the difference between the two genders..?

Wow that is crazy!!
I was lucky enough to buy a copy from EIL back in the late 90's for £150 (if memory serves) and I though that was a hell of lot of money for a record. It is mint and in a protective polythene vinyl bag. I bought it around the same time as the 2 Before promos (blue sleeve and red sleeve). Didn't get them from EIL however as found them on eBay at more reasonable prices.
As I am a collector of all things PSB I would never ever contemplate selling it for any price (sorry to disappoint so please don't offer and I wouldn't want to swap this for another item either).
I'm pretty amazed that this sold for over £600 but shows that there are people desperately seeking out a copy.
I haven't used EIL for many years (even though they still bombard me with e-mails). Some of their prices have always been outlandish and often eBay turns up rarities for better prices (not as often as I'd like though).

So if I got fired one day, I know how to make money: I'll sell mine.

It's easy to get drawn in by the auctions. Ask yourself does it really matter?
Yep one time if spend a fortune, but not nearly as much as some of the items that come up now. Go by mixes now. It's far cheaper.
Life is too short.

Apparently I did, although didnt realise at the time!
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning.
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.
