Title: Three handmade tapes for HOW MUCH????
Post by: shloonktapooxis on November 06, 2009, 06:01:57 PM
From what I can tell, they were made by Dan, but just look at that price!

That's about what I got for mine when I was forced to sell them to cover medical expenses.

Of course, mine were truly handmade from start to finish and included lots of unreleased songs (and I made sure the buyers gave their contact info to the Johnston family in case Dan ever needs to borrow them back for any reason...)

Don't be fooled, that seller did not sell those tapes for that price. He is notorious for listing things at outragous BIN prices, and none of them ever sell.

Cases in point:
THIS Beck 7" (http://cgi.ebay.com/Beck-Its-All-In-Your-Mind-BROWN-wax-IPU-45-Its-rare_W0QQitemZ400084566073QQcmdZViewItemQQptZMusic_on_Vinyl?hash=item5d26e60039)
I picked this up for less than 8 dollars on eBay a few years back. Special misprint brown vinyl at all (though it is very possible I got a really good deal).
THIS cassette tapes (http://cgi.ebay.com/Beck-Thurston-Moore-Tom-Surgal-Kill-Any-All-Cassette_W0QQitemZ400084123256QQcmdZViewItemQQptZMusic_on_Vinyl?hash=item5d26df3e78)
Yeah it's somewhat of a rarity, but you can find one with a little bit of searching for around 50 bucks.
and...
THIS 7" (http://cgi.ebay.com/Beck-Green-Light-The-Sonic-Youth-Pay-No-Mind-Green-Wax_W0QQitemZ400078616144QQcmdZViewItemQQptZMusic_on_Vinyl?hash=item5d268b3650)
A buddy of mine or his girlfreidn (don't remember which) got this when it came out back in April for like 15 bucks I think??

The dude has a bunch of rare and cool styuff, but it'll be his forever unless he lowers those insane prices.

Yeah, I don't think anyone buys anything from him. He just keeps reposting and reposting the same old stuff at the same old outrageous prices. That Beck-Sonic Youth 12" has been steadily on ebay for about 5 months by him at that same outrageous price.

Just an FYI:

I've received complaints about his high prices from people in the past.

The 15 cassette set that he sells for $249, he bought directly from us (3 of them) back in March for less than half that.
I think he also was selling the handbag before, which he also bought directly from us (hihowareyou.com) back in March.

As always: buyer beware I suppose.
