Memorabilia and rarities

Anyone looking for the ‘holy grail’ still missing in their collection?
Let’s bring back also a section where we can exchange knowledge and why not buy/sell items we are still looking for!

I’ll give it a go! Still looking for the Finest Lunchbox after 20+ years :grimacing: so if anyone is willing to sell it I’m here! lol

Been trying to find a vinyl copy of the Man on the Moon soundtrack. Couple of eBay ones have turned out to be CDs

My holy grail is still Lifes Rich Pageant on CD, especially the IRS Vintage Years edition, if I could find one, but really, any CD would do. I just can’t seem to find them in Brazil and, with the pandemic, the few friends who would travel abroad stayed put.

I have a complete collection of IRS vintage reissues (but not selling, sorry). Didn’t realise they were so difficult to pick up.

Probably depends on where you are. I got all mine in HMV (when that was still a thing), so clearly they were readily available here in Ireland, but not every market is as well served as we are.

I know but I was thinking about the second hand market. I would have thought there’d be loads knocking about, particularly in Europe. That’s what surprised me. Doesn’t account for international shipping cost obviously but just had a look and there is actually loads out there at a quick glance. Maybe its a shipping issue?

I would think it’s only difficult because of where I am, really. In the US and Europe, it was probably widespread back in the day, and now maybe you can find those as second hand quite easily.

For whatever reason, LRP became really hard to find here in any version. The original vinyl goes up to R$ 200-250 (about US$ 40-50), and I can’t even seem to find that IRS Vintage version for sale.

Oh wow! A quick google here in the UK found some 2nd hand copies on ebay for a few pounds (IRS Vintage CD). Wonder if they’d post to Brazil?

Thank you so much for checking! I’m sorry to say it would cost me a fortune too. The only way I can think of is someone here getting rid of their copy or a friend travelling and getting it for me in a used bin. It ends up here costing the amount of a regular CD, something like R$ 20 (or US$ 3-4). Really, thanks!

Another thing I’ve been looking for a while is Michael’s cast bronze cassette. Anyone out there owing any of Michael’s cast bronze creations?
