    Same here. An interesting SACD purchase at $19.98. But not for over $100.

    Wow - I may have expected something like that for the quad reel to reel version but not a stereo re-release.

    Damn... I have that one too... I think I paid $22.00 for it ($19.99 + shipping..)
    But then, I think I mentioned it in another post...

    I bought that last year for $140. I thought I was being ripped off.

    Its rare alright. Sarah is definitely catching up with The Scorpions. Moment Of Glory SACD.

    crazy..

    I can't believe I just waltzed into the Virgin Megastore all those years ago and picked if up out the rack at retail price (£14) and now it is so insanely rare and sought after. It is an absolutely wonderful album and the quad mix and fidelity are amazing (despite the reported swapped rear channels) but come on.. is a "glorified CD" ever worth hundreds of dollars?

    Also, I've never been able to get even a rough "guesstimate" out of anyone, even here on QQ, as to how many copies of the Sony single layer Multichannel SACDs like this were pressed?

    Either they were very limited, just a few thousand copies - and so demand outstrips supply..?

    ..or there are warehouses sitting on piles of these (clueless as to what they are, or well aware, hence values being driven up and up..who knows!?)

    ..or they were pressed in healthy numbers but were returned from stores unsold, destroyed, or something!?

    let's be frank, $140 for a solitary CD (no matter how "fancy"!) is bordering on the immoral.

    $778 is just outrageous!

    The Scorpions SACD is beyond even that, words can't describe.. there's one up on amazon right now, 'used'.. yours for €1,200.

    these things will be literally worth their weight in gold if prices continue to escalate..!

    It just appeared on Amazon.co.uk suddenly, and my reflex action took over. $140 poorer in a few seconds.

    I saw a few (columbia single layer) and bought some in the stores over here when they came out ( Miles Davis, Brubeck, David Bowie Heathen etc.....)

    Its just they are desirable... I think more of these got pressed than say Scorpions - Moment of Glory...

    don't get me wrong you did amazingly well, given that it's now fetching nearly $800..!!

    it's just a bit bonkers, isn't it!? i try to keep a sane limit of about £20-£30 now on these OOP SACDs & DVDAs and bide my time til it happens. if it never does, it's a shame.. but that's life eh! Can't win 'em all..!

    Like most of what I own, I bought my DVD-A's and SACD's when they hit the streets. I bought everything I was remotely interested in. I wish I'd had the money to buy 10 or 20 of each. Some of the ones I'm marginally interested in, I got used at $5 - $8.

    I did that as well for most of my discs.

    Even when I put something on e-bay, I've never gotten over $85 for any of it even
    though I've seen stuff I have go for hundreds.
    I got $65.00 for my Belafonte In Carnegie... nowhere near the $170 some odd the last one went for.

    I have a notice up at used stores for stuff, and the good will stores too. I see people finding good stuff all the time.
    The divorce was my fault, I just couldn't get along with her boyfriends.

    Even when I put something on e-bay, I've never gotten over $85 for any of it even
    though I've seen stuff I have go for hundreds.
    I got $65.00 for my Belafonte In Carnegie... nowhere near the $170 some odd the last one went for.
    The guys who make the money from SACDs avoid the auctions, place it under "Buy It Now" and bide their time. The Brightman SACD was "Buy It Now" at £500.
