earthling in the city cd?  

How much would 'earthling in the city' be worth in the UK?

Re: earthling in the city cd? new [re: skellaway]  

Acouple years ago Record Collector(w/ DB cover) said it was worth 35 pounds(US$60)

It used to be frequently seen going on ebay for 99 cents.

Paying more than $10-15 for it would be silly. Just keep looking and asking.

But isn't that just the opening bid? I've seen it listed in the UK for $28.80. Here in the States it usually brings around $20.00.

I believe they were 99 cents when amazon.com(?) dumped all of the overstack copies onto the market. Saturation of the market. I got mine for $6 after looking for a year and have only seen one other copy since.

I like the cover of it, one of the better shots of bowie from the 90's.

It's only sealed because the person selling it sealed it himself. The CD's themselves weren't individually sealed, but the GQ Magazine's which had the CD's in them were. I still have two sealed copies of the Magazine with the CD's inside on the back unsealed.

After the GQ magg freebie giveaway, cdnow.com gave one away free with every Bowie purchase so there are loads around.
In the UK they usually trade for around 10 at a record fair.

Are the live versions from of Little Wonder and Hallo Spaceboy, from the 50th Bday, still the only place to get those recordings?

Re: Earthling In The City new [re: angelnumber9]  

Well, I saw a copy (appropriately enough) in the city today going for $AU15, which is probably around 6. I'm prepared to pay that much but more and I'd be pretty reluctant. The same goes for any single, really, and there are quite a few imports going for around that price.

it's little wonder and heart's filthy lesson, actually. and yup, that's the only 'official' documentation.

which city do you live in Poorsoul and if its Melbourne, which shop did you see it in for $15?

Re: Earthling In The City new [re: davidsontrent]  

Collector's Corner on Swanston Street. But if you were looking to get it, I'm afraid you're a bit too late: I bought it on Thursday morning. The only other Bowie CDs of interest there were the One Shot single going for $8 and a Japanese release of Lodger (with the bonus tracks) for $22, which are probably still there.

Collectors Corner new [re: poorsoul]  

Ah! Collectors Corner used to be my shrine in the late 80's (after Au Go Go). It used to be managed by Ollie Olsen of Max Q/Third Eye/Dogs in Space fame. They had an autographed photo of Bowie and had offers for $800 which they rejected at the time. I think I got my Fashions disc set there amongst various other rare vinyl.
That was the old shop, last time I was there it had turned into a bondage shop and Collectors Corner moved into a smaller shop across the road.
My brother bought me the GQ with Earthling in the City so I got it for free . It's a great cd BTW, though I'm not too hot on the Mandarin version of SYIT. But it's worth the price for the live version of Pallas Athena and the Paradox mix of Telling Lies alone.

Get Bowie to Australia.

Re: Earthling In The City new [re: poorsoul]  

Damn,
oh well
im not too fond of Collectors Corner these days,
they used to have some good stuff there,
now its gone to shit, though i still check there
will have to get that ONE SHOT single though
i saw one of the BTWN singles there a few months ago late one afternoon in a drunken state
when i went back to get it,
it had gone....
Oh well, if any Melbournians happen to see any Ryko's/ EMI UK albums around on CD let me know where i can get a few of them... being
MAN WHO SOLD THE WORLD
HUNKY DORY
ALLADIN SANE
DIAMOND DOGS
and possibly STATION TO STATION, since the deal i did with someone for that seems to have fallen through

Re: Collectors Corner new [re: davidsontrent]  

Well, I have found a few gems there in the past few months but I agree that there are better places around. Dixons is where I've bought most of my collection from - including Aladdin Sane just a few weeks ago. I need a few of the others you mention but I'll certainly let you know if I see something you're after.

And, yes, that live version of Pallas Athena really is something. I was a bit disappointed with the other two live tracks, though, especially with the better rendition of Little Wonder on the BBC Radio CD.

Re: Collectors Corner new [re: poorsoul]  

Dixon's is good, made an effort to go to everyone of them in
Melbourne, even journeyed out to Dandenong by train to see that one (I live in Kew), but was very very dissapointed.
They had a box of free vinyl and few cds in there so my friend got the SINGLES COLLECTION out of it for free, in ok condition, so i guess it was kind of good. I've only just discovered the Brunswick St. one, not too shabby, Homeshow video stores are also very good for Ryko's, sadly there arents many around any more, the one in Box Hill has
SPACE ODDITY
LET's DANCE w/ bonus track
and i think thats it

Re: Collectors Corner new [re: davidsontrent]  

Not any more, I don't think, unless they've replaced the copies I bought. I'll have to check out that Fitzroy store, though. Camberwell doesn't seem to have much to offer at the moment.
