Searching for great LP record bargains


Paying the paltry sum of RM5 for Robert Johnsons King Of The Delta Blues Singers Vol II and RM35 for The Paul Butterfield Blues Bands double LP best of collection, Golden Butter, certainly constitutes a steal.

Paying the paltry sum of RM5 for Robert Johnsons King Of The Delta Blues Singers Vol II and RM35 for The Paul Butterfield Blues Bands double LP best of collection, Golden Butter, certainly constitutes a steal.

Prices have sky-rocketed in the last 10 years, and if vinyl LP buyers are not careful, they could be scalped. But armed with proper info, this common pitfall can be evaded.

A COLLEAGUE reached into the record sleeve and yanked out a suspicious looking piece of paper – it was the receipt of purchase. The album in question? Robert Johnson’s King Of The Delta Blues Singers Vol II. Granted, this was not the revered Volume I, which introduced the modern world to the greatest of all blues greats upon its release in 1961, but this copy looked like it was from the 1970s (the title was originally printed in 1970).
