I always get a bit mad when I play this album. I used to have 6 of their first 5 albums on vinyl...thanks to my ex selling my albums before I could get them out of the house when we split up, I no longer do. And a few of those albums now cost over $200 each if you try to buy the original releases of them. However, this is the one I didn't have then...and it's a reissue so it was only about $20 (original copies go for $170 or so now). Pearl Jam - Vs
Rats (Lyrics) Artist: Pearl Jam Composer: Vedder/McCready/Gossard/Ament/Abbruzzese Lyrics: They don't eat, don't sleep They don't feed, they don't seethe Bar...

What makes PJ so special as their albums to have that kind of value?

It's not just them, almost all early/mid 90's vinyl releases are outrageous to purchase now because not many were printed. What ticks me off is I was buying them new for $15 and under back then.

@JolietJake That's right. CDs were the standard by them. I wasn't thinking. What an investment that vinyl would be.

@JohnRoberts Not that I sell much, but I lost a TON of money thanks to my ex. I've always bought vinyl, and I had a lot of the stuff released back then.

I have a friend who’s quite anti-marriage (his marriage must’ve been a doozy for that to have happened), and I mentioned on his post about it that Johnny Russell (country singer/songwriter who wrote “Act Naturally”) used to say about his numerous marriages, “Instead of getting married I should just find a woman I don’t like every ten years and buy her a house.” I’m getting dangerously close to 60 now, but if I ever do get married I’d never mess with the record collection if things didn’t work out. I know how much the music means.
