I picked up a NM- copy of "Allman Brothers at Fillmore East" on the pink Capricorn label today for $1.99 at a thrift; this LP books around $50-$60 for a 'normal" copy, however my copy, if you read the fine print is a Record Club Of America issue. The thing is, it is actually pressed by Presswell. It has a RCOA sticker on the back of the jacket, and a small print "Mfg'd by Atlantic for RCOA" on the label.
It sounds damn nice.
Does the "RCOA" designation de-value it?

Nobody pays $50 for this anymore. Most go for around $20 and many can be had for less than $10. Scoring one for $1.99 is nice though.

With this band and this album I'd say you're on the cusp of as-much-as-stock and getting a slight premium for it. It might sit on a shelf a little while longer to get any more than a stock copy, but I wouldn't be surprised if it did. No actual experience with this album though, just my opinion. And only for an original copy. If it was a record club version of an 80's reissue it would probably de-value it.

Thanks for your replies. Yeah, I went by popsike sales for pricing; I should've checked ebay before posting.
Still, the pink label issue sounds so much better than my previous copy, a tan label Warner/Capricorn pressing.

IIRC Record Club of America had no affiliation with any of the major record labels, and sold 'regular' (retail) stock copies of LPs rather than copies mfd. expressly for record clubs.
