£30 for Subnation Black ep.

and 40 euro for Intense Paradox (but rate was very good at the time and it only worked out to about £26).

Bar those two not usually higher than 15-20.

Hey there - it's been a little while since I been on here... hello!

This one I think is the most I have ever spent - upped my £50 limit to £60 from memory:

I had a bit of a "sorry baby, it's dry pasta for the rest of the week" acetate-buying splurge last year and some of them set me back, but aside from that, vinyl wise I recently paid £38 for the Mole The Dipper Crisp Biscuit EP...

I shouldn't have spend that much to be honest but to call the copy VGP was probably an understatement, it is virtually mint and the tunes on it are great, such as:




Also so far in 2017 I snagged a plate I've been after for years for £45 and I've seen it go for £80 (chuffed for finally getting it, but £45 is no where near what I'd typically spend, that's personal holy grail money), BUT seeing as it's not on YouTube I won't divulge it, I'll upload it first then post here again.

So yeah, my top whack was £45 :)

^^^ Do like the mixed biscuit ep and that tune in particular

@dj jedi - great remix but ouch

Personally I haven't paid huge money for anything, £20 for X-Psych-Ting and the most was £35 for The Untouchables - N'Joi this, both off ebay around 2004.

I’ve always considered anything >£10 as expensive for a record and thought I’d get everything in the end if I search hard enough. Most of my mates who have been buying records since back in the day also feel the same. I think a younger generation who weren’t used to paying £4 for UK and £5/6 for an import consider paying £15-20 the norm and would happily pay £20-30 for something they really want. I think there are more collectors now than people actually spinning the records, if I pay £10-20 for a record then I’m paranoid about bringing it out with me in case it gets scratched or stolen from my record bag. if someone is just buying it to store away and play very rarely then this isn’t so much of a problem.
Recently I’ve started paying more as I’ve realised that there are some records I’ve been looking for for over 20years now and simply won’t find them for a reasonable price. I think the max I’ve paid is £30

The trouble for me now is there are not many records for £5 that I want.

Saying that i did pick this up for a fiver the other day:

www.discogs.com/Eddie-2-Harri-Callie-Wee...ght-23/master/542703

The issue I had back in the day was I never had any money. In 92 I used to be able to spend £5 or £10 in the record shop. Now I have a well paid job I can afford to have these tunes but the prices are stupid! oh well

I spent £100 on a Japanese tune last year, just because I really love it and I'd never seen it on sale. this one: www.discogs.com/DJ-Shimamura-Tokyo-No-1-...ed-EP/release/251667 - and with that, i ended up selling it recently anyway (at a slight loss!)

i've paid £50 or so a few times in the past...i would say though that I'm far less inclined to spend loads these days, just because it's a lot easier to just listen to any music i want. so I'd rather just buy cheaper tunes I enjoy mixing (which is most of my music taste anyway!) only if it's something that i will definitely get a lot of play out of, then it becomes worth it.

Around 50 think. There still a few bits I've nearly bought after a few beers higher than this but something always tells me at the last minute not to feed the chancers on discogs.
