About six months ago i found the email to one of the guys in the band. I asked him some questions about the story behind the cover and i also asked him if he still had some copies he might be willing to sell. And he did. He offered me a copy for 3500kr, roughly $500-550. However, i never got to see any images of the cover and then a few other things came up and eventually nothing came of it.
I reached out to him again this week to enquire if the single was still available. Unfortunately it wasn’t, i don’t know if he sold it to someone else or if he had just changed his mind. But i guess it really doesn’t matter either way. I asked him if he knew of anyone else who has a copy and might be willing to sell it but i haven’t heard back from him yet. I doubt that this will lead to anything but you never know.
In other news, an excellent copy has surfaced on ebay. The starting bid is at $1150 so once again it’s a bit higher than what i’m able and willing to pay for it. Remains to be seen if it sells or not. I’ve also sent an email to the seller asking about how and where he found it but i haven’t gotten a reply yet. I also asked if he might be willing to settle something outside of ebay if the record doesn’t sell. I have low expectations regarding this though, i haven’t had much luck with this in the past and i also doubt that he would sell this great copy for somewhere around $5-600, but we’ll see what happens.
