Another one I hadn't seen photographic evidence of showed up on eBay UK, not once, but twice recently - "like London buses," as they say over there, "you wait ages for one and then two come along together."

What were they asking for them?
The first one was a Buy It Now that sold for 20 quid (already overpriced in my opinion) and now there's another one on there currently with a starting bid of 36 pounds. If there were something special about the tape (UK-only tape, or Dolby encoded or something) but seeing as you can get the US domestic version for 10 bucks I don't see the point, unless you're in love with the idea of the rarity of the UK version.

Y8QP 1018 - 101 Strings with Monty Kelly 'Whiter Shade of Pale'

Another one that showed up on eBay UK this week - Precision tapes were the UK licensee/distributor of US label Alshire's 101 Strings albums, and this is the album called Today's Sounds (released on QS LP, Q8 and QR in the US) under another name.
