There has been a lot said in this section of the forums about not advertising second hand BN product from eBay etc.I would urge any BN fan that truly wants to stem the tide of profiteering to not buy this:http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/BILL-NELSON- ... 35be78e911or CD's of any other artist for that matter, from this guy:http://myworld.ebay.com.au/carlvbosch/? ... 4340.l2559
I have been watching this f***ing prick's behaviour on eBay for years. He/she/it (and it is probably the most appropriate term in this case) buys up rare CD's from many different artists with the intention of selling them for exorbitant profits.
This "person" obviously has no interest in the artists that they are profiting from other than how much money they can make out of the product.
They obviously care nothing for the music but only seek to exploit needy fans.IF YOU REALLY WANT TO DO BN A FAVOUR IN THIS REGARD GIVE THIS PERSON A MISS.
Let them rot and make sure the copy of BN's CD sits on their shelves forever.
It is a very difficult issue to my mind. Whilst I fully understand what you are saying and agree to a certain extent, what are fans to do who miss out on these very limited issues.
I was following this particualr CD on ebay.uk and it was sold by a British seller in Essex for £62.00!! Well out of my price range but obviously there are fans who are prepared to pay this premium on the second hand market.
As there were 500 copies only unless you only allow each person to purchase one copy, a somewhat draconian approach I feel, what can you do?
Whilst morally I'd agree with the 'Let them rot and make sure the copy of BN's CD sits on their shelves forever' attitude, how else do you obtain the music? For some fans of Bill the wait for a possible reissue is not how they wish to go hence the high prices for these CD's.
There was also a copy of 'The Alchemical Adventures of Sailor Bill ' that I was interested in as well, but missed out, it went for £37.50, again above what I can afford for a CD!
Whilst understanding 100% the reasons behind small runs, unfortunately its a fact of life that the more unscrupulous will see the opportunity for a 'nice little earner'
