One of my hobbies is scouring eBay for old Gospel lps, cassettes, or cd’s. Sometimes its finding a tape or cd thats out of print or replacing my worn out copy. Then sometimes its discovering an artist whose music I am just getting into. Either which way, its a fun little hobby that I have, and I have gotten some cool treasures from it.
However, quite frequently you run into people who are taking advantage of these old recordings, and charging way too much money for them. Today I saw something rare, a Dumplin Valley Boys record featuring Gerald Wolfe. The asking price, $154.00.
Now theres no one who appreciates Gerald Wolfe more than me, I love the guy. But $154 for an lp of The Dumplin Valley Boys?? Which raises a question, what is the most you have paid for a vintage project, or what is the most you will pay? Also, is there any recording that you feel is worth the price you paid for it?
