Comment on “blinded by the light” and the avid record collector price guide (was bruce springsteen ever blinded by the light? – part 4) by Neal Umphred http://www.ratherrarerecords.com/blinded-light-avid-record-collector-price-guide-bruce-springsteen-ever-blinded-light-part-4/#comment-3745 Mon, 02 Oct 2017 16:51:37 +0000 http://ratherrarerecords.com/?p=647#comment-3745 M

No, I’m afraid not: I haven’t had any faith in the price guides since I did them. (No loss of confidence here!)

Do you have the BORN TO RUN script cover and some of the superrare singles and picture sleeves?

Do you have your collection listed in your computer? If so, send you can send it to me and I can look at it.

Hope this helps a little,

Comment on is “street fighting man” the most valuable picture sleeve in the world? by Neal Umphred http://www.ratherrarerecords.com/street-fighting-man-the-most-valuable-picture-sleeve-in-world/#comment-3744 Thu, 28 Sep 2017 19:18:41 +0000 http://ratherrarerecords.com/?p=1185#comment-3744 PAUL

What can I say to that, except quote ol’ Frank What’s-his-name: WOWIE ZOWIE, BABY!!!

You interested in working with me on an article about your artwork? I’ll submit it to major magazines for publication (Rolling Stone and MOJO come to mind). If they published it, it would probably boost interest in your auction down the line …

Best,

NEAL

Comment on is “street fighting man” the most valuable picture sleeve in the world? by Paul C. Brownlee http://www.ratherrarerecords.com/street-fighting-man-the-most-valuable-picture-sleeve-in-world/#comment-3743 Thu, 28 Sep 2017 06:18:52 +0000 http://ratherrarerecords.com/?p=1185#comment-3743 Great info. Thank you.

I own most of the original artwork for this rare sleeve. Purchased more than a decade ago, it includes the front photo and overlays. All are in “production” form with spotting having been done and minor corrections on these working pieces.

Included was a sample printing on what appears to be scrap paper of the “No Expectations” wording (obviously one part of a multiple layer art work up for final production prior to “shooting” a single image of the accumulated multi-layer art for production).

Purchased from a major auction house that stated these were the original * production elements not items or parts used in either the official Danish or bootleg/pirate copies that were produced at later dates.

BTW: It is unclear if this sleeve was produced by London or their distribution partner in the USA at the time. Just a side note given conversations I have had over the years with numerous Stones collectors and record company old timers.

So all that being said, I am going to be putting these art dept pcs (no original sleeves or progressives, just the 3 layers of production art) up for auction this year (house unknown at this time).

Thank you for the great article on this rare sleeve. Just one more part of the story for this 45 picture sleeve and Stones fans. Thank you.

Afraid not. If you have a comprehensive collection with LOTS of major items, take the time to investigate those major items using recent sales on Popsike, Gripsweat, and Discogs. If this is inconvenient, consider paying someone to assess your collection—even if only to do the same research.

For instance, if you’ve been collecting for a loooooong time and remember the DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN picture disc peaking at $200. If so, you might think a dealer offering you $25 for it is ripping you off, when in fact it’s current value is $75-100, so $25 would be a fair offer.

Hope this helps,

Thanks!
