Somebody will pay. So as I will always say, you can't have clueless sellers without clueless buyers.
I watch people pay dumb prices for things all day long. Even if the prices aren't very high it still makes very little sense.

And not everyone knows where to look, either. Even when I was just starting out I was surprised to learn that I could get "slightly enjoyed" copies of originals cheaper than Musicland was selling "oldies goldies" reissues (and even THOSE were selling at almost twice the chart hit price). Having the 180-gram reissue may seem "better" to some people than a potentially "poorly pressed" 50-year-old original even if it was NM. I don't know - it all depends on the person, I guess.

He's got the condition listed as "used" on "Shake..." - more like "abused", Bud - my copy's VG+ and I paid a LOT less than this torched copy. As for the first one...yeah, the word "REISSUE" just jumped off the image.

Interesting that he says that he spot listened for a sound grade, you really can't grade the sound without listening from beginning to end. There are records that may sound NM but have certain spots that would rate G, and those spots can be missed without doing a complete play.

Watch the listing. Some clueless buyer will pay.

It's probably the one with the cover photo pasted over the original photo of the same guy in a butcher smock, chunks of meat, dismembered baby dolls...

On FaceButt there's a page specifically for CLUELESS CRAIGSLIST RECORDS LISTINGS. Talk about some howlers......
