heres the ebay link! you know you want it!

http://www.ebay.com/...984.m1555.l2649

In case you don't know what it is, this is a 4 song ep that Billy Joe Armstrong recorded with his family and pressed to send out as a christmas card. Very few were made, extremely rare. His wife is on vocals! the vinyl is pink btw :) I got a copy from one of the guys who pressed it at Brooklyn Phono.

Wow, I was really excited until I saw the price! I'll never pay that much for a record. If anyone is ever interested in selling me one of these for a reasonable amount let me know ;)

I paid over £100 for the Sweet Children EP many years ago, but thats because it was Sweet Children and stuck out like a sore thumb being omitted from my collection.
This however, which pretty cool, i wouldnt buy for that amount.

If you're not a big fan why would you get it when someone else who is could have?

And if you're not a fan then how the hell do you know what it's value is?

He was originally asking $285 but letting people bid. He changed it due to the reactions I'm assuming.

I would not pay $285 for any record unless it was personally recorded for me, but if I owned a collection I might consider buying it. I don't know. It's still ridicuously overpriced.

so no its not a rediculus price...

Yes it is!

Just because others have sold it for that price just means they were ripping people off too, it does not justify that price at all.

I'm not bothered about owning this but even if I was, I'd never pay that for it. I've been a collector for years, there'll be a cheaper one some day. You just have to wait.

He'll get his money though, some rich (and naive) collector will buy it.

Basically, the ultimate box set are all reissues from Reprise. The original pressings of Sweet Children were on Skene, extremely limited.
If i remember, the first pressing was about 1000, 2nd and 3rd about 600 each, and 4th about 1000, (they all have different covers).

You could pick up a pretty rare "look for love" record for about the same price as well.

fat wreck chords recently opened a record store in san francisco. they sold the new NOFX EP (my stepdad's a cop) as a store exclusive (grey vinyl, with different center labels than the black/blue copies on their webstore had). that pressing was limited to 100 copies, and some copies were sold on ebay for over $500.
i don't think $285 for this is overpriced at all, seeing that no collector had the chance to get one of those very limited copies. i think it'd sell for way more if it was an actual green day record.

Yeah, but that's not worth shit. It's the original ones, each of the first four pressings+first pressing on pink vinyl that are worth at least $80 each. The new pressing isnt original and comes with kerplunk vinyl.

You could pick up a pretty rare "look for love" record for about the same price as well.

Hmm... Which one would I rather have?
