Hi. Does anyone here collection Japanese pressed Hard Rock / Metal lps? Is there much of a market out there for original pressings by bands like Iron Maiden, Ozzy and Scorpions? I would think that with all of the reissues these days that those original pressings with inserts would be pretty desirable. Your thoughts?

Hi everyone. Part of my collection is made up of Japanese pressings and I do have some for sale. What are your thoughts on collecting these pressings? I know of a few guys who have some but no real big collections, just a few pieces. Are there hard core collectors of Japanese presings of hard rock and metal acts?

There are definitely a lot of collectors out there for Japanese pressings of a lot of stuff, especially classic rock/metal. Value would depend on the record/artist but stuff like Iron Maiden, Metallica, Megadeth would definitely be desirable. I would say that Ozzy and Scorpions might be a little bit less desirable than the three that I mentioned as far as hard rock goes but still up there (especially in good condition with obis intact). You can check popsike and ebay completed auctions for general values, or post a list and field offers here.

"OSBOURNE, OZZY: SPEAK OF THE DEVIL (WITH 45RPM) (NM/VG+) 2LP SET, GATEFOLD "

This one intrigues me, as I used to have it on CD.
