Back in April I blogged as the pre-order for the ltd. ed. of the Purity Ring Shrines LP began. All copies were pressed on teal-colored vinyl but there were 200 copies of the LP issued with a Polaroid photo taken by the group. Those 200 copies sold out in a matter of hours and that ltd. ed. has been a great flipper. I know of one instance where the ltd. ed. LP sold for $125 and another instance where it sold for $225.
A reader has contacted the blog to inform us that a new edition of the record is now available to order from Last Gang. Apparently in an addition of only 80 copies, it’s pressed on “flesh tone” colored vinyl. I did some Internet research and couldn’t come up with any background information on this flesh tone pressing. Only 80 copies? OK, if you say so.
Though I’m not sure that this edition will be $200s hot, it may very well turn out to be a collector’s item with some serious flipping potential. At only $16 I’d say it’s definitely worth a shot.
RecordFlipper recommendation: buy it!
Full disclosure: ordered.
