Would certainly be worth to make it public on this site of real fans and collectors.
Would be nice to be able to pick up a rare item at a good price, and also to know how much items are considered to be worth, by other fan's.

I've just seen the original 1980 Brats LP + 7" Sgl aparently in Ex condition on E-Bay for 50-USD which imo is rather 'cheap'.
Will be interesting to see where it will end. It's from a danish 2nd had shop of good reputation; No not Michael Denner's shop.
Anyone interested; it's Item number: 140082784077.

That was the main reason I started this thread. I've seen a few 12" at a local store and thought the price was rather steep. I wanted to know their "value", but couldn't find the site I knew listed them.
It would be a good thing to incorporate those pages in the official coven.

So if you have it, let's get it out here.
It will work both ways, if someone see the listing they should be able to comment it, and say if a 'quote' is too low or too steep. Since we have to expect some rare issues to get lost over time some items will eventually go up in value, or it would be because more fans start looking for it.
Am I greedy - yes I am  :fingers:

Yeah, that's true. I checked the site again, and the value is mostly an estimate from one guy. a community list would be more accurate
But I believe this used to be the official KD/MF site before it moved here. It hasn't been updated since 2001. A lot has happened since. I'm surprised by some of the estimates. There is stuff I see everywhere valued at the same price as items I had a hard time finding. An update would do it justice.

So I'll just transfer it to my first post (sometime tomorrow). I will ask permission, of course, but will this guy even be interested in collaborating? I doubt it. He seemed pretty pissed off when he stopped updating. But his list is there so might as well use it!

Ok, done. That was a lot of stuff. Couldn't get it all in a single post 'cos only allowed 20000 characters per post. I'll clean it up as I go along. ANd I'll format it differently. I know it's confusing the way it is now. I already removed the bootlegs and the cds. But will probaly include those known bootlegs, like the Time vinyl, with a mention that it is a bootleg, so nobody gets fooled! I'll also remove the guy's notes like which album he has an autographed copy of, etc... And I consider the old fan club releases as being official.

There is also stuff missing! like everything after 2001, for starters.....a lot of work!

Certainly a lot of work here, but thanks for putting it up.
I had this list once; might still have it as a print.
Let's consider it public knowledge for sure - don't recall the " getting pissed of ( what ? ) story " but like you say, it definately need an up date both for new items and value. I recall I thought some of those pricings rather silly, since it was commonly available products. Now the LP's are hard to get, and I'm happy I actually saved a few cassettes from those days. Maybe a separate section on the CWW. Could start with a listing as complete as possible, but without price quotings ( or you could make your own ) and ask that suggestions of corrections are put on the forum. It would be great fun to watch the conversations between interested parties like "I'll never pay that much" versus "I'd give my left arm for that album in mint condition" etc. etc.

Ok, I just cleaned it up! I'll keep the explanation of edits I make in new posts, to clear up the initial one as much as possible.
Pricing will be updated. Any suggestions or knowledge anyone may have is welcome.
And yeah! it's fun to argue on the value of those rare finds. I'm the type that believes that if people are willing to pay a certain price for an item, and that price remains constant for a few sales, then that's what the item is worth! I, for instance, would value the white border MF debut for a lot more!

As for Olivier, the guy that wrote the original list, my e-mail came back, MAILBOX NOT FOUND. I tried.
I'll just consider his work as Public Knowledge.

The "pissed off" vibe I got from him came in his last news update on his site. But I don't know any of the parties involved personally, and don't wanna stir any old feuds. I just thought I'd mention that I wouldn't be surprised if the guy wouldn't help me with the list after reading the way he felt.
Here it is.

Having spent the most part of my free time during three years on creating, improving & animating
the King's Gems page which became The Official King Diamond & Mercyful Fate Homepage, it was
an extremely hard and sad decision to choose to close the website.

I don't want to enter into boring & tearful explanations about this situation. Though, I do think that all
the people who have supported and appreciated the website deserve at least to know why I have decided to stop.

For about one year and a half, the fan club and the management agreed to promote this website
to the status of the official MF KD Coven homepage. So it was clearly announced on the previous fanclub
fanzines and in the House of God booklet, Metal Blade ads,... etc.

Though, without any discussion nor notice the fan club's guy Renzo Van Soelen launched "the"
official MF KD Coven homepage... I have been extremely surprised when one day of November I found
that new page (which already existed since October) on internet as 1/ I was already running the official homepage
2/ nobody told me about that page and 3/ no explanation has been done about the reason of such strange project.

Obviously, I asked explanations & a real choice from the management in order to know what this second
page means and what mine will mean in the future. Difficult to understand, but Olé Bang didn't agree to take his
decision during months. Untill the day I have published the actual European manager's tour diary. That day
I receive an email from Mr Van Soelen telling me that this diary has exclusively been written for the official
KD MF Coven homepage (of course he meant his page). So he was forbiding me to use it on mine. Furious, I
sent once again a letter to Olé Bang asking explanation, as during previous tours he personally sent me his diaries for
a publication on my page! The answer was : indeed you can't publish it, it is reserved for Van Soelen's page.

Well, it's far from the end of the world (even far from my own end :) ) but I couldn't have borne such an
unhonnest attitude and unrespect from these people. I have given all my heart & soul with total loyalty &
sincerity to the bands & fans. I can't understand and accept that some can decide to give the official status
to the website and remove it without reasons...

Finally, I especially want to thank all the great people who were behind the website or I was lucky enough
to meet. Some of them are real friends and like part of my family. I am also grateful to the bands memebers and
labels who always accepted to help me and support the website with great gifts for the contest, exclusive interviews,
nice news & info, ... etc. You guys were the deep reason of the big & endless growing success this website had
and especially all the happiness I got from this project which has been one of the most important of my life...

Ok, I made the list for the purpose of not getting ripped off by greedy sellers.

For the Bell Witch, from the original list, it mentioned that it was the first MF to not get a vinyl release.
So if someone comes accros a copy, it will obviously be a bootleg. So that's why I put that in the list instead of not putting anything at all. And looking like I forgot or missed that one.

So how about I put a mention that it hasn't been confirmed to exist yet?
(same goes for Time pic disc, and Into the Unknown lp and pic disc.)

By the way, what's considered a fair price for Japanese CD's.
I'm putting my MF Japan Cd's up on E-bay. Aren't exactly rare, although most of them might not be manufactured any more. Guess they made 2 or 3.000 of each title. MF & KD never made it "big i Japan" - but pricing them lower than the actual japanese retail price would be weird.

And Ole, I would like if you could contribute with more insight on the thread I had started about the weird mix of Come to the Sabbath from the canadian vinyl of DBTO. No one seems to have an explanation for it.

Well, we shall see...I've posted mine at USD 25- ( except the Bellwitch EP ) :P
The Japanese price is very close to 19 USD I think, but the american dollar is going down on a regular basis. Have no idea about the movement of the yen though.

Many of the prices on that list is quite misleading due to the fact that the list is quite old and many of the records have either increased or decreased in value quite alot. For example you don't find the vinyl versions of RETURN OF THE VAMPIRE, IN THE SHADOWS, THE SPIDER’S LULLABYE and many other records that cheap today.
Due to this reason I think it's better not to list any value at all instead of leading people to believe that this is the acctual value.
I think it's better to go to www.popsike.com to check the value for a record since there you can also seem when it was sold which makes it easier to see what it's worth today.

This makes a lot of sense....and when more than one person, ( fx two or three people ) have been willing to pay a certain price it may be considered that this is the going rate, unless it is suddenly seen that other people are able to acquire the same item for less.

True. For example: MERCYFUL FATE – Nuns Have No Fun '82 EP RARE 1st PRESS was sold once for 214 USD which is the highest amount any one have payed for it since www.popsike.com come to the web while the second highest is 150 USD and since it was only a month between the sales it's quite obvious that the real value is not even close to 214 USD.

unless it is suddenly seen that other people are able to acquire the same item for less.
also very true. If you keep an eye on ebay from time to time you will see that if a record haven't been up for sale for a long time it often goes for a very high price and when other people who have that record sees what it's "worth" many of them will put up their copy for sale which makes the price go down qute alot (see for example: http://www.popsike.com/php/quicksearch.php?searchtext=taste+our+german+steel&thumbs=&x=0&y=0)

No point. They just made it that way.
ALSO, the picture on the backside is reversed. The US version of the picture is the correct one.
On the European version the ghost of King is in the left side of picture, in the US version ( GWP905599) King is in right hand side of picture, and correctly said earlier, lettes here are red, whereas they are white on the Europe version (RR65484 ).

I think the vinyl versions of King Diamond & Black rose are all bootlegs. There are no barcode on the back of the sleeves and the picture disc. We have talk about this records before on the forum and I think "licensed from Metal Blade" just a trick to make us think it is a official release. I have own all these record and they sure look like bootlegs. The vinyl is extremly thick and heavy. The cover also looks like a bootleg release. The only official is the CD.

I also have the vinyl version and though I can agree that it looks a bit like a bootleg the label that released it is trustworthy and I've never heard that they have done any bootlegs. (Archaic Temple Productions is a sublabel of Iron Pegasus Records) The picture disc though is not released by the same label (atleast to my knowledge) and I believe that it's a bootleg.

To my knowledge this: http://www.popsike.com/php/detaildata.php?itemnr=330016251798 is the only version with the priest and coffin on the front cover. I think that you misunderstod the information, "King disaproved of the color", if you look you'll see that it's brownish and on the other presses (when it's on the back cover) it's black and white.

I heard that most of the copies of the BLACK MASSES / BLACK FUNERAL 7’’ Picture-Disc was destroyed and that there acctually only exists somwhere between 500 and 1000 copies. If my memory is correct it was because the label wasn't going to well and had to clear their storage or something and therefor had to destroy them (and asumingly alot of other records).

One thing that could be good to do on the list is to remove all of the sales info. For example on the
MERCYFUL FATE (Often referred as NUNS HAVE NO FUN) -1st mini-LP- second press it states "(contains an exclusive presskit w/ a promo photo of the band + bio + disco written by J. Kibble)
This info is quite unessesery since that is what came along with Olivier Delobel's copy.

Label info for King Diamond  And Black Rose (4)  - 20 Years Ago - A Night Of Rehearsal

wasn't the 9 lp pressed in 3000 copies? If I'm not mistaken that's what mr. Wead told me!?

Yeah, there is text that I wasn't sure if I could remove. Like in this case, I thought it could help to differenciate it from the third press.
But for other items, some mention that it comes with a lyric sheet, or had a sticker....but is it that important if your copy doesn't have it?

And also, I wonder if I should keep the TEST PRESSINGS and PROMO COPIES in the list. I mean, yeah, they exist, and could somehow be in circulation, but I find it makes the list very exhaustive to go through. And what value could possibly be awarded to such items?

Thanks for the info on the Black Rose lp!...and you should confirm with Mr. Wead about the 9 lp  :D

Agree. Those test pressings probably only excist in 2-5 copies and there's no need to have them on the list. They are so rare that pricing will also be irrelevant and misleading. Basically there's at least one test presing for each vinyl LP.

It does exist a bootleg copy of the original Conspiracy sleeve. It is made i Brazil. You could hardly see the difference between the original and the bootleg but the rim on the original front cover is red like the usual Conspiracy (with Kings face) and on the bootleg the rim is red/orange. The country list on the backcover with the barcode is sharp on the original. If you look inside the sleeve the origianal looks just like it should be but on the bootleg the paper is brown. The print is also sharper on the original. The bootleg is also rare but you can see it on ebay sometimes. The real original I have only seen one time. I bought it directly.

I think that info about lyric sheet and so is good to have so collectors knows what things should come with the record.

I think that Promos can be good to have in the list since they can occur quite often for sale but test pressings are so rare that it's nearly impossible to find any so I don't think they are nessesery to have on the list.

I left the promo items. And also done checking it against Tredz's list.
Now we can really start arguing values (or not!)
But if you spot mistakes and stuff I might have overlooked, I'll update. It's everybody's list after all!
Great job.
Where will it be posted ?
Will be hard to track down if on the Forum - can you put it on the general page of CWW

THF.
I think the vinyl versions of King Diamond & Black rose are all bootlegs. There are no barcode on the back of the sleeves and the picture disc. We have talk about this records before on the forum and I think "licensed from Metal Blade" just a trick to make us think it is a official release. I have own all these record and they sure look like bootlegs. The vinyl is extremly thick and heavy. The cover also looks like a bootleg release. The only official is the CD.
INFORMATION FROM METAL BLADE: they did give a license to “Iron Pegazus Records” for the Black Rose release.

Maybe you should add the "Decade of horror" boxset?
Here's some info in case you wanna add it:
Contains The Spider's Lullabye, The Graveyard, Voodoo and House Of God on picture disc.
Germany, Massacre Records MAS BX0289 Approximate value: 90 USD (this is based on the last couple of sales found on popsike and ebay)

I've made a little check on some of the records value today. The values are based on what I've seen the records get sold for during the last six months. The prices are based on the mean value between minimun two sales and then round it off.

Mercyful fate:
RETURN OF THE VAMPIRE LP $  50
In the shadows (Korean pressing) LP $ 70
DEAD AGAIN 2LP $ 50
9 LP $ 50

Ok, added the box set, and corrected the values of the above. I trust the homework you did!
I also corrected the value of the 9 pic lp at $60. Since the lp (2000 copies) is at $50, it seemed weird to have the pic disc (500 copies) with a lesser price tag!

The picture version is acctualy worth approximatly $45 (same way of setting the value as on the others). It's not to strange that it's worth less than the regular version since there is much less people who are interested in Pic. discs than regular vinyls.

I also noticed that the frensh pressing of the IN THE SHADOWS Lp is worth alot more than the korean (one copy was sold in june 2006 for $153) I didn't include it in the list since this was the only copy I could find that was sold during the last year so it's hard to say the acctual value (before that it was sold once for 50 euro and once for 80 euro).

I didn't know where to post this... but this seems an appropriate thread  :)

Just thought I'd mention i have a couple KD/MF items for sale on Ebay...  I picked them up at shows at the concession booth. Perhaps someone can help confirm the availability of these items.  It was great to meet a couple people from the bands, but i didn't get to meet King  :(

- 'The Eye' album signed by King and Andy
- '9'  album size promotional card signed by the whole band

Anyway, the item numbers at ebay are 200084222471  and  200084220645
or "King Diamond" under 'music' catagory

Plz don't flame me if this is in the wrong place   

I'd like to hear any comments  Thanks!

A tip is to start a new thread, atleast that's the best way to make people know that you are selling something (this thread is mainly to show people the value of the different pressings and releases).

I think the promo card for 9 is quite hard to find (haven't seen one for sale on ebay before).
The eye LP (unsigned) is quite easy to find, but I don't think it's to easy to find a signed copy.

Don't know the availability of these items but I hope this info is atleast a little helpful

I ordered it together with the black and white version when it just was released.
It comes in the same cover as the other 2 versions. Its also handnumberd although they placed a little sticker over the original numbering spot saying (Picture Disc 087/100)
The writing in the innercircle of the record is still readable (normaly if you have a bootleg they scrath that out). It has the same number as the other 2 versions.
I dont have a digital camera to take pic's. If I had one i would.

that it'll not take longer than 2 weeks.

Ah, ok! If it comes from the same distributor that had the license for the regular vinyl, it's very plausible that they could also release it as a picture disc. So I'll remove the "bootleg" mention for this one.

And thanks for taking the time to answer!

There are still a few webshops that have it and they usually charge €25. 
A funny thing about that 300 copies thing is that there is nowhere stated on the release it self and considering how often it's up for sale it seems like there are alot more of the out there.

Mercyful Fate "Time" LP i believe has been bootleged or reissued.
Usually the copies come out of Germany.?
Theres one on e-bay for buy it now of $30us.
Not sure how to tell the difference between an original or reissue as i dont own a copy.
Maybe in the matrix numbers.

Great to hear. As said, I know there are several versions of many CDs, so it would be nice to know what's official and what's not. If someone also has info about what records have been made as cassettes, I would be very happy. I'm collecting just about anything, even cassettes, but they're hard to find, and I have no idea of what has been released. I've seen only "Them" and "Abigail" so far, but I'm sure there are others too...

On this site you can see a bad picture of the LP On a night of a full moon. The artwork of the LP is between Live in Copenhagen´82 and Die schwarze maske.
http://www.geocities.com/mercyfulfate66/MFBootlegs.html


The old rare Live in hilversum has the same artwork as the Brazilian copy but the vinyl is black.

thanks for the information!

On this site you can see a bad picture of the LP On a night of a full moon. The artwork of the LP is between Live in Copenhagen´82 and Die schwarze maske.
http://www.geocities.com/mercyfulfate66/MFBootlegs.html

so it has the cd cover artwork? never seen it ...

btw. how many different editions of live in copenhagen / schwarze maske do exist? i've heard about 4 different editions at least?

The old rare Live in hilversum has the same artwork as the Brazilian copy but the vinyl is black.

Yes, On a night of a full moon LP has the same artwork as the CD. That´s what i have heard but i´m not sure because i have never seen it myself.

There are totally 5 different editions of the same record. Die schwarze maske with 2 different artworks. Live in Copenhagen´82, On a night of a full moon, Live tour (Live in the UK). They are all the same record but the artwork is not the same.

No, that is not correct. The original of Live in Hilversum is on black vinyl with white label and there is no old version of it on red vinyl. The original black vinyl is hand numbered with a red pen on the back of the cover and the Brazilian copy the number is stamped. If you have the red vinyl there is the new Brazilian copy for sure.

thanks alot again! ...i need to get my hands on the live in hilversum lp!

thanks for the maske lp pic either. i have both lps on the right side of the pic. i have never seen the one on the upper left. the one on the bottom left was always the same for me ..the same like the stamped "adv. copy" (which i have) ...so never anything special for me i mean. but now i see there are some differences.  :)

As it seems, somewhere between 20 and 25 euro (plus shipping). I think the best thing is to get in touch with the label since I belive you can get it cheaper from them.

Updated! And yes, I do them once in a while since I first put this thread up. You just have to be patient!....and you're welcome. Nice to know it's helping!

If you read ALL the thread, it will answer many of the questions you just asked. Ole Bang himself confirmed that the Black Rose Vinyl was licensed from Metal Blade, therefore official. The list is based on 2 private collection, plus the input of many forum members. I have no additional info on the Fatal Portrait pic disc, like a catalog number from a known distributor, so I have to stilll consider it a bootleg. And the reason why the bootlegs aren't part of this list is that their value just can't be quantified. (Ex. a bootleg company will state that only 300 copies exist, but in reality, they peressed 5000....you see!) And (I will repeat myself) the list is intended to let you know you're buying an official product, at its rightful value. So any corrections or additions are welcome.

as for the Abigail pic disc...this is all I know of the only official release.
Dutch, Pic-Disc, RR 6 9622, $ 40
If you have a different one, let me know of its origin (US, you say?) and cat. number. It is possible that there is more than one official version.

Thanks! I know that the value of bootlegs can be difficult to determine, but I was talking about listing all known bootlegs, without values, so someone doesn't go buying one thinking it's official. As we saw just now, it took a while for "The Bell Witch" to be updated here, and I'm pretty sure some of us have seen it in eBay, thinking it's a bootleg, since it's not listed here. As well, someone might buy some silly 7 inch single from Mercyful Fate's bonus track, thinking it's official, but this list just haven't updated it yet... If we gather info on bootlegs soon enough, noone can make the mistake that it's official, as well as officials won't be concidered as bootlegs...

Well, I was rather slow to update the list with the Bell Witch ep. I'll give you that!  :D
It was discussed in another thread (the one Bub put the link to a few posts up!) and I was sure I had added it here. Shit, I even posted about it in that thread, so I knew of its existence! But, in my defense, I'm just a coven member like you! I don't moderate or administer the boards, nor do I maintain the official coven site! So you have to take this list as a fan list, with its inaccuracies and time lapses! But I am here to help, so I try to keep it as accurate as possible.

As for bootlegs, if you want to start a list, please do. I do not have nearly enough info on them to even think about starting one. I sometimes consult such lists for other bands and find the whole thing rather confusing. Like different titles for the same show, unofficial reprints of official albums and the aforementioned bogus limited editions! But I know that there are probably many like you who would like to have such a list and would be willing to contribute their input on it. Just like I do for the dvd bootlegs thread. I know I'm far from having them all, but I list what's up on dime and if it's worth the download. Not much, but it's all I can do for that!

so should I remove the question mark after Bootleg for those 2 items?

And if the HOG non-pd, unnumbered seems to be another kind of test pressing, should I also remove it?

I added the 2 brats items....but I really think they are bootlegs. That company looks fishy!

In a case of Fatal Portrait PD you should. I´ve got the lp and theres no info at all. Example the PD of Abigail has Roadrunner logo and catalogue number.

why have remove the unnumbered version of HOG ? this lp is official and this not a test preesing. On the test pressing there is no label and no cover ( there is 25 copies of the test out there) but for the unumbered there is a few for me this is the rarest lp of HOG.

it seems that the greek guy who made the new bootleg of the "banned" conspiracy lp, made those lps too :

Regarding the HOG unnumbered version: I think it is just one copy (more?) that was not numbered, which in my opinion does not qualify as a different press and should not be in the list.


And yes. We have a greek guy making lots of bootleg copies of the rarest and most expensive stuff; definitely the "banned" cover.

Tell me a cat. number and other details of your In The shadows lp? I think I have a original one, (ZORRO 61) it has picture lyric sheet and the label looks same as in coeval Cannibal Corpse vinyl.

Regarding the HOG unnumbered version: I think it is just one copy (more?) that was not numbered, which in my opinion does not qualify as a different press and should not be in the list.
that's the conclusion I had come to also. If there's a place for a number that isn't there, it really seems to be a test press.

Yes. He has sold maybe 4 or 5 Spider´s during the last 6 months. And 3-4 Conspiracy banned cover which I know are bootlegs. + 4-5 Time which are also boolegs. He´s specialicing in bootlegging the rare KD stuff it seems.

Lower the value for the PD version of 9 (as I stated before, the value of the PD version is lower than the regular version (this is no bs, I actually
keep track of 100+ vinyl’s value)

So what would be a more appropriate value?
And if you are quite sure of other badly evaluated items, please do tell! I almost didn't change a value from the original list. A lot must have changed since.

Yes, On a night of a full moon LP has the same artwork as the CD. That´s what i have heard but i´m not sure because i have never seen it myself.

There are totally 5 different editions of the same record. Die schwarze maske with 2 different artworks. Live in Copenhagen´82, On a night of a full moon, Live tour (Live in the UK). They are all the same record but the artwork is not the same.

No, that is not correct. The original of Live in Hilversum is on black vinyl with white label and there is no old version of it on red vinyl. The original black vinyl is hand numbered with a red pen on the back of the cover and the Brazilian copy the number is stamped. If you have the red vinyl there is the new Brazilian copy for sure.

I´m just wondering i have this Live in Hilversum in red vinyl (brazilian bootleg) but there´s no stamped number in the back?? does anyone else have the same thing??

My Copy comes with a white sheet with the songs and a handwrite number. Not shure about my copy number, but my copy it's number 023/150 (the "023" it's handwrited).
I have one more question: I got a copy of King Diamond & Black Rose on black vinyl and it comes only the vinyl. All copies comes with insert?
Where can I get just a copy of the insert? (I'm not pretending sell this one, it's just to have it).

The best idea would be to contact Iron Pegasus records (Archaic Temple is a sublabel of Iron Pegasus) and ask if they have any extra inserts. Don't know what their website is but it should come up if you google their name.

1000 copies are actually quite a few. I don´t think it´s hard to believe. There´s not such a rush for KD picture discs. So I actually think there are 1000 of them.

I noticed the descriptions and values are straight from this thread. So to whoever put it up, I just want to make sure you realize that those values may not be that accurate today since most were lifted from an old site that went offline some time ago (read the first few pages). I tried, with the help of many collectors here, to keep it up to date, but it is by no means a definitive price guide to those records, more of a general idea!

I just checked the pic. version of HoG and it should be lowered severely since the highest it's ever been sold for (according to popsike.com) is $45, there has also been a couple of copies up on ebay with buy it now for $40-45 which no one have purchased. (check ebay.co.uk -> worldwide -> completed listings)
The Black Rose Pic. version I can't say anything about so the value you've set might be right for that one.

WTF? My Massacre-version does not have a sticker... The Metal Blade version has a sticker that says "limited quantity". But what I have "heard" is 1000 copies worldwide which would mean there a total of 1000 Metal Blade and Massacre-versions. But I don´t know... Exactly what does that Massacre-sticker say?

1000 total seems odd. Since they have different release numbers, they should be able to tell how many of each. like 500-500....

Without having consulted the actual agreements; I'd say that it is very possible that MetalBlade as signing record label; has the right to make sub-licenses for the titles, and in this capacity they have probably gone with BlackOnBlack to get those albums out again. We have never been asked, and unfortunately we don't even get a sample.

So Back on Black seems big enough to get sub-licensing contracts from Metal Blade. The MF releases will be considered official unless we get contradicting information from reliable sources.

http://www.geocities.com/SunsetStrip/Amphitheatre/1236/collector-list.html (http://www.geocities.com/SunsetStrip/Amphitheatre/1236/collector-list.html)

Geocities doesn't exist at all anymore!
The list on page 1 was based on Olivier's list, so there's not much missing from it, vinylwise. If you wanted it for cds....sorry! I haven't saved it either!

No, I was interested in the vinyls... The test-presses (with matrix-numbers) and some info regarding bootlegs were on the list...

One thing that bothered me. In Deadly Lullabyes LP it states, that there's a poster in... I bought one, and the seller said he had never seen it... Should this be on every copy? And what does it look like? Just thought, I'd ask...

edit: I'm currently working on bootlegs list... I'll post it soon, and hopefully get some help from you guys!

I think the poster was only included in the promo copies. The way it was written on the original list (then reprinted here) may have led to that misunderstanding. Can anyone with a copy confirm that it doesn't come with a poster?

and I'm looking forward to the bootlegs list!  :king:

I think it depended on where you bought the record. And in my case online.
I can't remember where i bought my copy, but i got a small poster with it, which is now hanging on my toilet wall.  :D

I think i either got this when i bought it from Nuclear Blast online or otherwise Metalmerchant.de

one question...

I saw 2 lps to sell:
King Diamond ozzfest 2008 with metallica - Mercyful fate (Medley)
http://www.popsike.com/KING-DIAMOND-METALLICA-OZZFEST-2008-BLACK-WAX-HAND-NO/130334540736.html
Mercyful fate - live in USA 95
http://produto.mercadolivre.com.br/MLB-118464107-mercyful-fate-lp-duplo-importado-imperdivel-raro-_JM

the price was R$ 100,00 (US$50,00) each one
do  they really worth the cost?
and are they really authrized vinil?
anyone here have  heard about them?
Title: Re: Value of MF/KD vinyl LPs and EPs
Post by: Beelzebub on February 02, 2010, 11:22:39 AM
They are definately bootlegs!
Not sure of their value, but $50 is rather steep if you ask me! It all depends on rarity, and that can be hard to be sure of as well.
Title: Re: Value of MF/KD vinyl LPs and EPs
Post by: +Angel+ on February 02, 2010, 11:47:56 AM
the first - 300 copies hand num.

the sec I don't know..

$50 because of the import tx.
the real price is $20
Title: Re: Value of MF/KD vinyl LPs and EPs
Post by: Mike Steele on February 03, 2010, 12:31:58 AM
The ozzfest 7" exist in 300 in 9 different colours (although most of the colours are really alike). I´d say 20 USD is about a fair price for one, but it depends on which version it is. Though I´d say it is a reasonable price even for the "least" rare version.

I´d estimate the value of the Live in the USA to 40 USD.

Guess it's black....

but 300 copies of each color (so 2700 copies), or 300 copies divided for the 9 colors?
Title: Re: Value of MF/KD vinyl LPs and EPs
Post by: Mike Steele on February 03, 2010, 05:46:25 AM
300 total as follows:
001-003: graphite grey
004-007: intense purple
008-012: odd grey/purple
013-031: steel grey/purple
132-064: midnight purple
065-098: light purple
099-131: pitch black (speckles)
132-192: black/drak grey
193-300: purple/grey (assorted)
Title: Re: Value of MF/KD vinyl LPs and EPs

I don't know where he is with this.

Listing values of bootlegs can be very tricky. With each recording, there can be many different releases (different title, artwork, etc...), and all that numbered/coloured/etc... stuff adds to the confusion. Basically, it's a catch to make people believe they're getting something rare and valuable.

When I was a kid, I thought the way to know if a dollar bill was fake, was to look for the "legal tender" mention. So I came up with a plan that if I was to make false money, I would print that on my bills so no one could tell......


Massacre on the back is a way to fool people into thinking they are legit.
All those Voodoo coloured editions are bootlegs.....until the real one comes out (limited at 500 copies - and no one knows which color it will be) on march 26th.

Yes Mike, I did check it out when you initially posted it. It looks like it is a promo item only, that's why I didn't put it up. But at the same time, I did put the promo versions of the regular lps in the list so this one (since it's not a bootleg) should be included as well. It's just hard to evaluate exactly how much it could be worth.....Is the ebay auction selling price of $26 reasonable?....

Well, no idea. I guess it could cost just about anything since it´s a rare piece and there could be some die-hard collectors wanting it.

I´d say it depends on the version. The black vinyl edition is much more difficult to come across. If the vinyl is black it is a very good price. THe red vinyl is easier - I bought mine for about 40-50 USD (not more at least) if I remember correctly.

Sorry! I know, I've promised to start this too long ago... Maybe everything else settles enough for me to start this... But I need your help, fellow Coveners! I don't have 1 bootleg in my collection, so my quess for the value is always 0€, since that's in my opinion just enough about it. Also I have knowlegde of only few bootlegs so far, so if I can ask for you guys to send me a PM with list of your stuff (that's not on this list) so I can get some idea of just how many bootlegs there are...

It would be great with a list without the "value" - it's to difficult to set a value to the records anyway. The important thing IMO is to know what exists. I'll try to mail you a list in time... (when I have time).

Finally added! Sorry for the delay!

I also added the 6 new coloured KD vinyl numbered editions of...

The Spider's Lullabye (516 copies, red vinyl)
The Graveyard (517 copies, blue vinyl)
Voodoo (513 copies, clear vinyl)
House of God (523 copies, white vinyl)
The Puppet Master (500 copies, green vinyl)
Give me Your Soul...Please (500 copies, mint vinyl)

...that will come out on march 26th.

Someone let me know the serial numbers once you have them in your hands!
and I have no idea what mint means for a colour!.....or why the odd numbers like 517.

Well, that's just the final milking of the cow . . . they order a pressing of (probably 500 ) and the machine start running. Eventually it's through the desired amount of vinyl, and why stop and throw something away. . . . or maybe it's set for 525 ( so a few start- and end- pressings can be thrown if there's defects with the start up process or at the end of production ). . . . . .and those which are perfect doesn't get thrown away, just to make the sell number an even 500 . . .they are as good as cash.

Yeah, this makes a lot of sense. It's still odd to have a copy that reads #331 of 513...lol! but like you said, if they're good, why throw them away? just print a few more sleeves!

If we can believe what metal merchant has put a pic of, it is the remastered artwork.
It was to be expected! I mean, they just went to the trouble of making new artwork 'cos they didn't have the original ones (TSL and Graveyard) in a good enough resolution to use 'em.
It's better this way. If you've seen the Roadrunner re-releases of Abigail and Them, for which they used the blown-up cd cover, you'll understand!

Those covers went horribly wrong! That's the 180 gram vinyls you're talking about right? They have the remaster cover from Roadrunner which on the cd isn't good but when they get it up on a big picture on a vinyl it sucks balls.

Yes, I have them too. They are really bad, that's for sure. I was just hoping to see atleast some difference in these new releases, other than the colour of the vinyl itself... Puppet Master and Give Me Your Soul...Please are worth checking, since the originals are not gatefold releases, but twice exactly the same release (the remasters)... I do want to collect everything, but in this case I might just make an exception.

I just bought Time on vinyl for 40 dollars. It's was released Metalized Blood Records. Can anyone tell me anything about this version?


Black Vinyl on Metalized Blood records is a bootleg. The only official release of time is the licensed version done by Night Of The Vinyl Dead Recs limited to 500 handnumbered copies on splattered wax.

Regards.

And on Paulos website it says the right opened version is the "difficult" one... (on the other hand on Heavy metal museum it says the opposite).  :D: But I definitely vote that the right one is the difficult one. Every time I ask a seller which version it is they answer up opening. And I have seen it on a webstore where the price is set 45 euro for the up and 60 for the right...

On Olivier´s old page it says it exist, but it is not on Paulo Pereiras list... and the ones one popsike seem to be dutch roadrunner copies. + only Dutch releases of the eye on discogs.com.

I have the same version too... I think one interesting difference you can see is the label on the vinyl itself... on the US version it is printed just like on the D with 3 different color bars... On the Dutch version the label on the vinyl is the burning witch that appears on the back of the cover in a purple color...

Spoke to mr.

Though that it may be interesting for some of you to know.

Yeah, I have heard that before though it has never actually been confirmed I think. But if Wead hears that from King maybe it is correct. So possibly not as many as 2500, but it is still quite common I think so there are probably quite a lot of them around nevertheless. (So it seems to me anyway).

And the remaster of Voodoo clear vinyl for about £20. If anyone knows any good vinyl sites please let me know.

No the CD. Check out this link and you'll see what I mean.

http://www.amazon.com/Melissa-Mercyful-Fate/dp/B000000H43/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1327187969&sr=8-1

That is the price people have listed it for but will never get. So - even though I am not into collecting the CD:s - I am certain that is not the accurate market price. After all - people can put just about any price on things they want to sell; I saw someone demanding 1000 usd for the regular Halloween PD once... I would guess a used copy of a standard CD (nothing fancy really) would sell for at most 10-12 usd.

This could be slight offtopic, but just to tell my story of collecting lp´s. Some 2-3 years ago I won the ebay bid on Don´t Break The Oath pic disc from USA and I´ve paid it immediately. It was going about three weeks and I send some questions about the parcel. The seller was so kindly that he replies ASAP and tell there´s some delay et cetera. After 5 weeks his next explanation was: the post office has some misunderstanding and send the lp back to me. Then he promised to send it to me ASAP. When you use paypal be aware, theres only 45 days time to get your money back. I believed this seller because he has positive feedback, but he only hesitate 45 days and then he has prevent me to give feedback on ebay. What a moron. There goes my money.

The second time was on Finnish huuto.net site. I won the bid on Fatal Portrait Japan lp. I´ve paid the lp immediately and even the seller was live in same town with me, he never sent the lp and never answered questions via e-mail. I read his upcoming feedback and there was many other guys in the same situation with me. I think ok, that´s enough. I was thinking about to visit in his house, because I know the address. Next thing to came up to my mind was, maybe it´s better to made an police report. The seller called me next day and ask do you want your money back or the lp? I wanted to take the lp and it was in mint condition. I have sold it onwards because I don´t want to hold on memories like that.

The third time in last year was on discogs. I even registered to the site because I wanted to buy red Spider´s Lullabye lp. I have paid the lp via bank transfer and there goes my money again. I never heard anything from the seller after payment. It was the first and the last time when I was using discogs and even as a reason to give up to collect KD/MF. Too much bad luck. I´ve purchased and sometimes sold thousands of records via internet. These 3 different cases was the worst of all.

Of course I`ll buy the next King Diamond lp from my local store if and when it comes from the darkness.  :icon_twisted:

Sorry to hear that... It is inescapable that sooner or later you run into idiots trying to rip you off. I have had my fair share of those incidents as well but on the whole I think I am pretty well off. Now and then you manage to make a great deal as well and it kind of eliminates the bad experiences. But nevertheless it is awful when it happens...

I have one question... I have Dead Again LP and maybe one day I will sell this vinyl. What do you think, how much money can I earn?

Vinyl is in near mint condition and sleeve is very good.

a bit off topic here, but a very valuable site, that tracks what albums are being sold for, it's a great site and thought it could be of use to people here.

I recently scored some first U.S. press editions of Mercyful Fate & King Diamond vinyls at my local record shop. I know I overpayed though  :kopfpatsch:
Thing is, it's not every day I can have the convenience of a 5 minute drive and just buy the vinyl then quickly go home and play it on my turntable. It's a little embarrassing what I paid but here goes:

Mercyful Fate - Don't Break the Oath

First U.S. press by Combat Records (1984): $39.99  :kopfpatsch:

King Diamond - Abigail

Roadracer Records, first press (1987): $29.99

King Diamond - Conspiracy

Roadracer Records, first press (1989)(Includes Thomas Holm drawing insert): $32.99

Last year I scored "Melissa" and "Them" for $19.99 each which I felt was good. "Them" is the first U.S. press by Roadrunner Records in 1988 and "Melissa" is the second U.S. press by Megaforce Records in 1983 but it doesn't have the insert  :icon_frown:

All in all, despite overpaying a bit I'm still happy because I love King Diamond & Mercyful fate and am able to own a piece of heavy metal history.  :king:
Like I said before, I feel as if part of the price was for convenience. Problem is vinyl is popular and trendy these days so record shops and online sellers seem to take advantage of that.

Nice score. Not sure you overpayed too much, think thats about what i've seen them go for on ebay.
And then you don't get to grade them yourself (not every online seller who is totally honnest about the grade of records).
And you don't shipping cost (which is killer for me, if im ordering from the States) and you can play them when you get home, without waiting for the mailman.

Thanks! You're absolutely right, I got to examine the vinyls myself before purchasing them and as soon as I got home they went right on the turntable. Very exciting really, as we all know.

And keep in mind that the values listed on page 1 were semi-valid in january of 2007 (date of initial post) and were mainly copied from a list that was a few years old already. Since there are many new vinyl adepts out there, those original '80s pressings are getting harder to find, so the prices tend to go up radically. I've noticed this the last few years. I don't know if it's gonna maintain, go down or get worse! The main goal of the list is to know what's out there that is not a bootleg, and compare what versions are more rare. If you are happy with your purchases, that's all that really matters!

At a local chain called Half Price Books they had the Melissa LP but it was signed by King, so it was $75! Way too much for me and the autograph is not important unless I personally got it myself. Who the hell would go through the trouble to get him to sign it only to sell it to a used book/record store anyway? Well here is the even shittier part, this store has 50% off sales all the time, so I just waited for that. When the sale eventually came, the record was nowhere to be found. I figured someone else bought it. Then a few days after the sale was over it magically appeared back in the same spot again! Fucking asshole store manager probably put it in the back so no one could get it for less than $75. The autograph seemed like a newer one too, he had the 9 and "stay heavy" written under it, he didn't do that back in the 80s did he?
