For me it is the classic records 200g Led Zep "Houses of the holy".
I just cannot find this anywhere under £150. That is way too much for an LP for me!!!!
You should read Hoffman forums - Themusic.com selling this title at $33 but I think they have all just gone.
That is just my luck!!! I have been tracking this down for a year or too. There nearest I got was bidding around £80 when the item went for around £95. I think I got a bit over excited even going up to £85. Kind of glad I didn't win really!!!!
They sure did sell HOTH for $33 last Saturday. I was lucky enough to snatch one up before they sold out. They only lasted a few hours. They also Had Led Zeppelin III and Presence, but those are gone as well. Only The Song Remains the Same is still available.
Luckily i managed to snap up a few of these Classic Records Quiex LZ albums a few years ago for about 30-40 pounds each - LZ1, II, III, IV, HOH, Graffiti, Presence and ITTOD - they sound brilliant and are well worth getting. I am still after the BBC Sessions double set, now 200 - 300 pounds.
Another rare gem i am still after is the Robert Plant "Dreamland" album, seen those for 100 - 300 pounds, very attractive set.
I had a copy of "Jethro Toe" MGM years ago but must have sold it, no longer in my collection, though 20 years ago i found a copy of Family's legendary "Scene from the eye of a lens" for 40 pounds in good/fair condition, here is a video of it playing...

I still look for rare Prog albums, including Vertigo, but originals are all going for really silly prices so will grab a foreign repress if i find one.
Porcupine Tree reissues are also coming up as the original LAVA recordings are going for over 150, managed to pick up a Tonefloat reissue of "Absentia" in black vinyl for 20 pounds but don't know how the sound quality will compare...?
