I picked up the Joan Armatrading for 17 a few years ago - had the RLJ from new. Price wise I don't think these are among the more expensive Nimbus titles and last ones I noticed (some time ago) were sub 100. Best place for them is Ebay were people pay over the odds for these - let the market determine the price. My view is apart from a few titles they are over rated, though I haven't found a better sounding Joan Armatrading.

As I said put them on Ebay - unfortunately 'collectors' and 'investors' are spoiling this for music fans. No sane person who wants the best sounding RLJ would pay anything like that price - The current Warner 180g cut is better sounding for 20. Haven't heard the Mo-Fi as I'm waiting the 45 rpm version. :)

You really should keep these, as the only way to equal them sonically is in digital form (and of course that's questionable in some circles). The JA disc especially sounds amazing when compared to the cuts that came after the very first issue ones, and even they weren't as good.

I agree the JA can't be beat. RLJ has better alternatives now. Some of the titles did suffer a little from smiley face EQ like the original Mo-Fi's. Only sell if desperate as they appear to keep increasing in value. Dave you can't be serious about digital !

Couldn't be more, especially as CD's I once thought were lousy now sound superbly musical, 3-D and believable to me. Don't want to go down that route, but it was the original CD of 'Show Some Emotion' when compared to a more recent mastering that done it guv'nor, the original CD now doing what the vinyl did at the time in terms of the 'hanging reverb' style that Joan's producer used at the time :)

All good fun innit :lol:

I take it they are still up for sale then? - I would suggest Ebay where you will likely get 200 -300 for the pair with ease.

This may be of interest.

253 for the RLJ, on its own.
