This morning I was brought an original Eat A Peach Vinyl album. For no reason a friend of mine had a firned who cleaned out an attic of a relative and took it and no I have it.
Is it worth much?
I have no intention of selling it but I would just like to know.

Not really worth much. Probably $2 or so. They're not very rare. It sounds much better than the CD version, that's for sure.

I use my record player more than the cd player now. They also had the album "Brothers And Sister's" tucked in as well.

wes,

We all know the music on that album...

However the inside painting is pretty cool. Use to look at is for hours when I was a teen, and I wasn't even high....

What it's worth is directly proportional to the condition.

In another thread, I just mentioned that I have one that's never been opened. I could probably get $300-$400 on eBay today for it.

If it's in really, really great shape - and you feel you can rate it highly versus a know standard guide (see info below), then you can try to sell it to other audiophiles on Audiogon or eBay, specifying it by rating. But beware: real audiophiles and collectors are VERY critical about ratings. Don't over-estimate.

quote:
Album's Grading/Condition
These are the grading guidelines used and are based on Goldmine Grading for Records

MINT (M): Perfect! This record looks like it has just left the manufacturer, with NO flaws what so ever. It looks as though it had never been handled. No scuffs or scratches, blotches or stains. No stickers address labels, writing on the covers or labels. No tears or seam splits. No wear to the cover or record period! Age of the record has nothing to do with it.

NEAR MINT or NM, M- : this record appears virtually flawless A very minor scuff and very little else can appear on the vinyl. It should play without any noise over the flaw. The flaw is very hard to see. The cover looks as close to perfect with only minor signs of wear and or age. Minor impressions to the cover (due to the outer edge of the vinyl resting inside) may be acceptable, however the artwork is be as close to perfect as can be.

EXCELLENT or EX or VG++ : minor scuffs which are only slightly visible. There may be more than a few scuffs and NO Scratches COVER: Artwork is still as close to perfect as can be. Some impression to the cover (minor outer ring wear) but no ink wear! Some slight creases to the corners, but not wrinkled and obtrusive to the eye. The corners can show white (where the artwork pasted slick was) meaning, slight wear. No seam splits or writing on the cover or taped repairs can make this grade.

VERY GOOD PLUS or VG+ record shows wear, surface scuffs. The vinyl still has a great luster, but the flaws will be noticeable to the naked eye. If the flaws don't cause any surface noise, the vinyl can still make the VG+ grade. COVERS: A virtually clean cover, but may have small writing on it.The artwork looks clean with slightly more aging. The back of the cover usually gives away the age of the cover. Flat white paper will be somewhat yellow yet no stains or mildew from water damage. Some minor wear to the seams or spine, but no tears or holes popping through. The corners will be slightly dog eared yet no crackly bends, defacing the artwork. In essence, a VG+ cover should have no more than 3 flaws mentioned.

VERY GOOD or VG: this record is a record that is good enough. They are not really going to look very good, but it will STILL play very good. there will almost always be some surface noise when they are played. The Dynamics should still be excellent, overpowering the surface noise. A VG record will appear well have been played but still have some luster. VG covers will look worn, used. There may be some seam splitting . There will be some ring wear, where the ink has begun to wear off. Giving the cover a look of snow falling. If the artwork looks snowy all over, it is less than VG condition. There may be some writing on the cover (still, no Large letters in magic marker). It will look aged and more yellowish due to contamination's in the air (sometimes looking like cigarette smoke). Still it should be decent.

GOOD or G A good record will look very well played, dull, grayish and possibly abused. However a Good record should still play. It will have distracting surface noise. Such as crackle that is continuous or some hiss. Will also have some loss of dynamics caused from grooves being worn. It should play without any skips or any obtrusively loud pops or repeated clicks, caused by deep scratches. Good means that it will play with some form of decency, so one can still enjoy the music even though you can still hear noise caused from the wear. A Good cover will have just about everything wrong with it. It will have seam splits (possibly taped repaired, but only with scotch tape. No duct tape or masking tape repairs. These are big turn offs. May have magic marker writing on the cover but still if they are in huge letters, it is a big turn off.In essence, the cover will looked virtually trashed, but some artwork will still be noticed. If the artwork is worn, it is POOR and the cover is worthless.

That depends alot on what's in the "deadwax"..the area around the hole where the album fits on the record player....at least, I think it's called that. On Cds, it's called the "matrix".

In that area, is numbers, letters etc, that detail which pressing it is. A first pressing is worth more than later pressings of course, and the numbers and letters also indicate where the record was pressed...Japanese pressings are more valuable than most others, but it is a "case by case" thing.

If you have other records, compare the album to them...is it "thicker" than the others? Original printings of records in the 60's and early 70's are much heavier than later issues.


I suggeset going to SH Forums to read more about the EAP album and it's various pressings.

http://www.stevehoffman.tv/forums/index.php

The "Music Corner" should have some good reading, use the search engine to find out more..try "Eat Peach vinyl" for instance...that should help you get started.

I don't know much about record pressings as I am still struggling to learn all I can about different cd pressings, with all the info being in the vein as vinyl; where it's pressed, when it's pressed etc.

Different pressings sound differently... it's especially noticeable on great stereo systems... so your Eat A Peach is valued by which one it is...good luck hunting prices.

If you came across a quadrophonic version of EAP that I imagine might be worth something -- not many of this type were issued IIRC -- I believe you had to have dedicated quadrophonic equipment -- for those who did have that equipment though, it must have sounded amazing -- to be surrounded by four speakers -- with the two drummers & two guitarists coming out of one each & the bass, organ & voice from all of them --

Any idea how much an MSFL gold unopened Eat a Peach CD might be worth?

The MFSL should be worth about $100-$150 sealed. Maybe a little more, maybe a little less.

Those discs are ususally sound fantastic, so you might want to keep it though...

Nice find. I have a great copy with a beat up cover outside, but you can see the bluish fade on the edges of the covers. inside pic is in great condition, and the records sound mighty fine. not bad for fifty-cents!!!!! also love that mj is on two different records, so when the first one is finished playing, the second half drops right behind it. some audio geeks squirm at the thought, but i've never had any major issues with some of my folks records that were put on the stack and played all night. gotta love some thick tasty wax...

don't just look at it, PLAY THAT SUCKER!!!!!!!
