is it me or we just saw those flowers on the cd somewhere else ? Dannii ? Deee-Lite ? can't remember
Oh, my eyes! That cover is a whole world of hideous. The flowers put me in mind of Austin Powers (Madonna's Beautiful Stranger single to be precise).
I may have just purchased now 40 - 105
(only about half of the fronts were featured but they were neat piles of 10 with the highest numbers on top and the spines all look fine and the seller at least responded decently (though he didn't send me a pic of the worst looking copy when I asked but that might be because I already placed a bid before he'd even read that), so fingers crossed this isn't gonna be a very expensive mistake. But I'm also assuming with such a complete collection they're likely from one person who hopefully took good care of all of them instead of 'just the ones ending with a 9')
How much did you pay? They look fine to me. Even if the odd one has a slight bend in a booklet or a chipped case, you'd have paid about £850 for them new. You're only going to put them on a shelf anyway!
Well that's an absolute bargain. I'm sure they will be fine if you accept that they're not all going to be in mint condition. That's part of the deal with a big job lot - the seller doesn't want to carefully check every disc and label every single tiny flaw.
At least they're not digipaks or anything like that, so maybe the odd one will just need a new case.
I expect most of them were probably listened to once and twice and then just not touched for years though.
Look pretty okay to me, I'd personally be alright with buying that lot. And they come in at just over £2 each including all the postage and stuff, which isn't bad at all. You're saving a huge amount compared to even buying lots of 10 at a time.
About the booklet photo they sent - all I can think is that it's showing that the booklet isn't damaged and the staples aren't rusted or broken or missing. They look well cared for from what I can see.
That was an annoying thing about the design of the hinged 2CD jewelcases, a lot of my bought-from-new-and-handled-carefully NOWs have those corners slightly spoiled.
Hinged in what way (compared to today's cases)?
