    Hey no don't feel bad! I'm hopeful there won't be a problem - and if everything is fine I'll be over the moon as getting hold of that album is like finding pubic hair growing on an egg lol.

    To be honest I usually buy from discogs and haven't had a problem. On eBay yes. Also bought another 2 albums at the same time as Electrified, one seller (Roxy media) has told me that they don't know when the album will be in stock even though it's advertised as being so si ive demanded a refund, and the other hasn't posted it got back to me since - wankers.

    I ordered the Roxy Music box and a Johnny Cash box set's from a well known online retail store and paid via Paypal,received a not in stock reply,so canceled the order and got a refund.About a month later they both turned up,contacted the seller and asked them to arrange collection,18 months later they still haven't collected them,so seems a shame not to play them.

    Rarely buy off the auction site,but have picked quite a few bargains " Minimum Maximum" sealed vinyl box for 30 springs to mind,stick to record fairs mostly now.

    But if you buy new you should have the pleasure/confidence of opening it yourself.


    Same thing with Subbuteo.
    I know of collectors buying shrinkwrapped teams that have never been used and they don't care what reference number they are, so long as they're unopened.
    Same thing with blister-carded toys, of course, like Star Wars figures, etc.

    Subby teams often go for hundreds of pounds anyway, but factor in this "fetish" and you're looking at 1000+ for a rare one.

    Whatever men collect, they will pay over the odds for .. twas ever thus

    Hmmm - considering only 1000 (I think) were produced the seller now has another on eBay......

    Received today. Packaging immaculate. Vinyl outside of main box which in my opinion is stupid as the design of the box is fantastic. But all seems well - listening now and I'd say it's unplayed - but another album to go....

    Gosh it's bloody good!

    E Bays a funny thing. Sometimes we expect the worse (especially after bad things have happened ), but it never ceases to amaze you when you find an honest gem of a seller
