The ones on Ebay seem to be played to death and I can understand why...classic indeed.
I recenlty obtained a NM 1st Jap pressing of Moving pictures from a Japanese seller on Fleabay. Killer sound, dead quiet vinyl. I happily paid $80.00 USD.
I have found that the Japanese pressings almost always exceed American pressing quality by quite a fair margin. I have found some great Japanses sellers on Ebay with lots of great NM stuff. The Moving Pictures LP I ordered from Tokyo on a Friday night was in my hands by the follwing Tuesday.
My Holy grail would be a sealed or NM copy of Pink Floyd DSOTM solid Blue triangle, first UK press.
My local shop had DSOTM first press seled ..£500...not worth that IMO.
Good to know they are still out there SS. 500 GBP is too spendy for me.
How do the 1st UK pressings (Solid Blue Triangle) sound compared to the other great copies like MFSL and Japanese first pressings ? Any descernible sound quality differences ?
