Because in the past there have been promos that have not been many copies of, and can end up being impossible to get, so the first ones are presumed rare until numbers prove otherwise, completists snap up the first ones at whatever the cost prices, until availability calms it all down.why so expensive, if this is for promotion then a copy must go to music magazines and newspapers,must have been a few sent out.
Please expand, which is the most prized collectible? In your opinion?Reminds me of trying to collect all the different 2004 cd-r promo's for the Quarry singles. So many variants of every single that came out. Different font colors, different fonts, white border's, different artwork all together, etc.... That was a fun and exciting time in Moz world. He should of retired after that tour and just played a few shows every couple of years after that. IMO. But for example, the 2004 NOCHACTY cd-r promo is the most prized Moz collectable according to Record Collector mag, which I do disagree with.
Off the top of my head, Interlude 3" Abbey Road cd-r, Boxers 12" test pressing with 4 tracks instead of the normal 3 tracks, Sunny being the extra track, November the 2nd 12" test pressing, the alt etched Interesting Drug test pressing that has a negative image of Oscar Wilde in a kidney shaped etched bubble. I will have to check my want list, but how many of those have you seen?
Oh I don't have one. I only know one collector who has one. I have only seen his and never another one. But it is an Abbey Road CD. I don't remember how many versions are on it. It has been about 15 or so years since I have seen the 5" Abbey Road CD. They are on my want list, but I don't think they will come up for sale anymore. The collectors who have them will more than likely stay with them and be willed down.You have the interlude 3” cdr? Is the the one with 9 different versions? Would you be willing to share those versions? Or trade MP3’s for other MP3 rarities?
