This should be interesting.
I wonder how many of us have actually heard it.
I spoke with someone recently who had bid $1200 on an e-bay auction for this disc....and lost.

Quite a few - if you count the SACD rip via PS3 & conversions thereof...

I've heard an SACD-R rip of it over at a mate's house. It was a rather hurried flick thru rather than a proper sit down listen but what I heard was pretty cool, very cool actually.

I passed on a used copy about 5 years ago for £100.. Whoops :mad:@:

I have same copy, sounded brittle to me. I would hope the original was better.

so, here we have a slightly crazy situation...

We have a New Poll for an old disc, for which I'm thankful, thanks Jon (y)

... but it's not just any old disc, it's the Holy Grail for some...

..and so far only hardcore QQ members (may I say all 5 of us who have posted in this Poll already are hardcore? :eek:) have heard it... but none of us own it..!

So I say.. "EMI... Get this bloody damned surround mix out again on Blu-ray Audio NOW..!!!!!"
:mad: :mad:@: :howl :flame

I have hundreds of titles that are OOP, but none going for the cash of Moment Of Glory. I just read this complete thread, $1200.00 on a lost bid???????????
It might be time to let my sealed copy find a new home. I do not sell on Ebay but I may have to start :>) I will consider private offers from QQ Members.

Oh Noooooooooooooooooo....!!!!!!! :( You mustn't sell it!!

How could you ever part with it??? :yikes

I would love to make you an offer.. but I know in my heart I can't compete with some of the guys on here!

Plus I wouldn't want to cause offence with an embarrassingly low offer! :eek:

A shot in the dark.. but are there any discs you're still looking for? Might be worth more as a trade on a certain disc or discs!?
