I would think that Martin would be very rare, because the new CD they made had to be taken from the composer's own record as they didn't have the original recordings. And I've never seen the Martin record myself for sale. Did you buy all those records? That's a good set and cheap! I would have paid more if I had seen them.

No I passed on them. I didnt know if it was a good bargain or not. I'll have another chance to get them next month though. Hopefully.

Wow, I would have surely got the first 5 in your list and The Thing. Where did you see them? At a sale or in a shop?

At this outside flea market thing. They'll be back next month. They might still have everything but they say they bring different items everytime.

Yeah Chris, grab anything Martin because usually that stuff (anything featuring Martin) has been extremely hard to find and for $5 - $10...well worth it. I would even buy it off you. ;) Plus the Amityville Horror record sounds awesome. I have always loved the music from that and to have it on a record would be awesome.

Well I guess I should say that if any of you are interested in any of those records I'll gladly buy them and sell them to you. :)

Yeah Chris, if you are uninterested in the Martin and Amityville records then let me know. I would happily buy them off you if you were able to still get them. Just PM me if they are still available and with the price of each. Thanks ;)

Well I finally was able to go to this again, it was absent last month. I was browsing, looking through it all and I of course picked up the Martin LP (signed by Tom Savini)

Excellent day so far then I discover Halloween. Needless to say I bought that one as well. ;)

It seems to be in Japanese/English.

I picked both these up for the price of 22 dollars. A true good day.


And these were the new LP's I saw there,

Freddys Greatest Hits
Escape From New York
Robocop
JAWS, 2,3-D
Aliens

No sweat, if I ever get rid of it your the person who's getting it.:) For the smallest possible fee, perhaps just for free.

Not too rare. It usually doesn't take long for one to pop up on Ebay. Just last week I saw three of them at the same time.

On another note. The rarest laserdisc is the japanese h1 and the h4 final cut german laserdisc. From what I've seen anyway.

There are two Japanese H1 laserdiscs. One looks like the original Media US release and is much rarer than the later Amuse Video version.

Really? I like the later release. It is more diverse. Do you own the other one? i think theres also an asian h6 laserdisc. That one in the gallery under h6 appears to be asian but I could be wrong.

I doubt it. You can, however, buy one in good condition for that price. I once bought a friend a record in nice shape, and it only cost me $6. Depends on the other bidders who come along too.
