Would be interesting to know whether the buyer actually went through with paying £300.

......would the price still stay on cogs if the buyer backed out?

Prices paid only register once the seller fee has been paid, so yes I assume so (and that's also why you rarely see prices more recent than a couple of month.)

Hi,

I think these later FTRAX are only sought after due to their rarity, not that they're any good.

They pressed loads of the earlier releases, and very few ppl bought them, thus these were easily obtainable for under £5 each.

This meant hundreds of ppl with almost complete collections of the whole label, except for the last few releases.

I think FTRAX 20 onwards were pressed in much smaller numbers.

I played "Do It" on FTRAX 23, but IMO, this ain't a special release, just rare.

Surprised FTRAX 21 ain't more sought after, as its pretty good.

My fav on the label is FTRAX 14, pure class, no collection should be without it!

for me i had the tune on a dj rap tape from seduction halloween 92 which is why i want it - peronally i think its a good tune and its the only one out of the set i dont have :( - if there are 300 peoplw that want it and 200 of those want it in mpfree then that still leaves a 100 who want the real deal

Ftrax 21 is very iffy imo. I used to have it but it went years ago.

Looks like Ftrax 24 seems to be missing. Wonder what that could be? And Ftrax 11, 12 and 15.

Ftrax 10 looks like it is the System Exclusive - The Double Zero EP due to runout etching

Ftrax20 is the one for me, got 2 copies :D One of the first records I posted on my blog. I really wouldn't mind finding 22,23 and 25 but I'll fully admit that 90% of the allure is the low have / high want numbers
Butsch - Teckno Themes always been a bit sought after too right? I've never found that for super cheap. I'm still waiting to nab it for 10 pounds or less, it's good but not my #1 most wanted record or anything.

Hi,

All the missing FTRAX are there, I'm sure I worked it out a few years ago, going by all the run-out groove etchings, and the approx dates I received each release.
