How many have done it?

Have done it a few times myself, not massively overpaid, but got sick of searching for good copies of a few lps like Bathory s/t and just bought a good one when I had the chance for a bit more money - paid about £30 for it but it was in NM condition.

I suppose, but I wouldn't say "overpaid" if I thought it was worth it.

For sure, if it means getting my hands on a great condition copy as and when I want it of course I'll overpay. Not really a problem. I'm certainly not one of these people who waits and waits and waits because they won't dare spend over £20 on an lp.

Many times, especially when I've bought multiple records at the same time. I'd rather overpay for one record and get multiple records from one seller than seek a bit cheaper copy later.

+1

I'm pretty much down to about £50-£100 a month on records. all my wants are old records that really aren't rare or expensive, most are about €10-€30s worth. I'm not patient enough to wait around forever and ever. If the condition is EX or NM I'll happily enough give a few quid extra.

I'm about the same. I try to buy collections as much as possible. Usually it starts out that someone has one record I like - then I ask what else the person has...usually I come out better by buying a bunch of stuff at once.

Do you mean first press?
Well, I don't see the "overpaid" anywhere, I think it's more than fair price, most of jews today will sell it for more than 70€ though, overpaid means 1,000€ or more imo

Only as gifts. I paid far too much for a mono copy of The Beatles Sargent Pepper's for my father-in-law.

For myself: never.

I've sold plenty that I thought went for ridiculous sums...

Never spent more than $30AUD altogether on a single record.

Original pressing of Drawing Down the Moon for $5 was a great day until I had the sticky bit on the plastic sleeve rip the cover...

I've done it for super rare stuff that I know I'll probably never see again. Luckily most of them are not "kult" and so the prices have not been pushed up because of ebay.

Depends on what you mean by "overpaying," but if something falls in your lap that you've been wanting forever, and it's in EX/NM, why not pay an extra $20 or whatever? That $20 ought to be worth the having the record NOW, instead of scouring used shops/egay/internet forums etc for a long time, looking for it at a steal price. If it's something I really want, I have no problem paying a slight premium from time to time, assuming it's a high-priority want and is in killer condition. Sometimes you just gotta bit the bullet and get the shit you want.
