What's the price of Dreamscapes?
 
Hello everybody, I always read the forum but I never write. I hope it is OK for you if I write now to ask an advice from you. :)

I (reclatantly) decided to sell my copy of Dreamscapes (in excellent conditions) and my Little America DVD. I haven't found them on Ebay, but I have seen a copy of Dreamscapes sold on discogs for 597 (!) dollars. No hint for the DVD.

Is this price correct? How should I sell them on Ebay?

Thanks in advance!

Out of curiosity why are you getting (reluctantly) rid of it ?

nova2001 22 Sep 2013 19:55

Sorry for the error ;)
Of course the same old reason: I need money...

jetset 22 Sep 2013 20:43

ah, not for musical reasons, good to hear [smile]

Foolship1077 23 Sep 2013 07:17

$597 for Dreamscapes?! What a difference a few years makes. I bought my copy off eBay in 2004, for $300!

As for the Little America DVD, when I bought it off eBay, it was at the same $40 price as it was when it was first released.

It is on sale on discogs now for 500 Euro (or "make an offer"). The site suggested me 650 euro but I think it is too high. If I can't sell it there, I'll list it on Ebay in a few weeks. Thanks for the suggestions!

Ok, Dreamscapes is a very beautiful box to have but 600$ => Never [banghead]

And I'll be happy if I could find one on the internet cause it's the lonely cds I don't have but not for a price like that [wink]

shapeseven 28 Sep 2013 20:46

why pay shitloads of money for CDs when the whole stuff is available legally as mp3 on iTunes?
I have rare CDs like the first uk edition of underworld's "dub no bass with my head man" or "dog man go woof"; both rare - and both corrode: they are unplayable as the silver data layer within the plastic disc got brown spots and shows holes (I never thought that was really possible). Or the collectors edition of the cd maxi "in your room" by depeche mode (released as gatefold cd set). it's ready for the trash today as the glue used by the manufacturer to stick the paperback cover to the plastic cd trays killed the CDs (top side fine, data side looks like you sprayed some acid on the discs).
if dreamscapes was a vinyl box I'd say a 1.000 bucks are a fair price for such a rarity. but CDs? that's dead matter, my friend.

I am searching to have Dreamscapes....
I found it on E-bay at 450 € + 90€ for sending.... but that was a "folie" then I passed my turn....
I think you can sell it very well ! but before let me know your price !!!
good luck !

nova2001 28 Sep 2013 21:55

Actually I sold it after just one week on Discogs for 500 euro (675 dollars) + shipping. I am a bit sad to let it go but, on the other hand, I'm very happy to have 500 euro in my pockets [wink]

lightfairydee 28 Sep 2013 22:00

Please let me know if someone want to sell Dreamscapes !!![banghead]

I bought my copy of Dreamscapes around 2004, paid about $300 for it on Ebay. I imported all the songs into Itunes twice (once when I bought the CD, and then once when I lost my entire library and had not backed it up). Other than that, the box has sat at my dad's house in France. I think there's some wear on the box itself (it was like that when I got it but I didnt't really care).
If the price is right, I might be interested in selling; I've been playing wit this idea before, just can't get myself to quite do it. Same with my Crazyshow boxset LOL, except that one I bought through "offical chanels" and not Ebay...

pu5tema 02 Oct 2013 22:05

I paid 1000 Euros for mine, but everything is spotless, without any risk or marks.

alphamale 09 Oct 2013 21:34

One here for sale - doesn't look like the full set though.

It's a shame the digital version of Dreamscapes is missing lots of tracks and Crazyshow isn't available at all.

Ah, you see the Dreamscapes Revisited listings, the mp3 re-release that featured most tracks from the original set. The one big advantage Revisited had was the slower version of "Whales" to go with the one that was put on DS 5.

Not only do I have the original set put to iTunes, but I bought that one track off of Revisited to complete it.

Is anyone selling Dreamscapes?I can't find it

MalilaM 15 Jul 2019 19:54

It's normally quite expensive, but it's offered on eBay from time to time. You might find one available visiting the website regularly. ;(

MalilaM 16 Jul 2019 22:25

If they refuse, you might still get it and the CS you already have. I think there is demand from a few new fans. :)
Yet, the item's information is from 2016, so it's probably not available anymore. Anyway I'll cross fingers for you, Ana. It's worth having it.

Don't be sorry, Dear Ana, it was not your fault. I will keep searching for you[smile]

Ana 18 Jul 2019 21:07

Thank you,Mart

MalilaM 18 Jul 2019 23:03

@Ana, Mart: Don't be discouraged. These boxes are sold from time to time; it's just a matter of patience. Oh, and we've learnt in Utopia about patience. [wink]

Ana 18 Jul 2019 23:16

Yes,Malila;You are right

Mart 23 Jul 2019 20:58

The downloads now are a big problem. Torrents now are being uploaded with smaller bitrates than the originals. 16 bit torrents are all over torrent sites now, and it is a much weaker sound than 24 bit. Vinyl is making a slow comeback now, and with luck, Alphaville will continue with Vinyl after the Forever Young Super Delux release

MalilaM 23 Jul 2019 22:49

Whoa! A vinyl DS version would be like 20 LPs. That's quite a lot, don't you think? [bigeyes]

DS could be released if it was originally released on vinyl 24 bit 96 Khz. Every Disc could have been released every month. Double vinyl albums for four releases for the double CDs. King Crimson, Pink Floyd and more artists are now releasing their Vinyl albums again. I have just bought In The Court Of The Crimson King album on vinyl for 17.99 euros

MalilaM 27 Jul 2019 05:19

That's still quite a lot, but fans be crazy. [laugh]
