    Ive seen some prices for tunes just silly on various sites, Andy C's Eastern promise listed for 150 quid anyone? nahhh

    But i was wondering? if you saw that tune you 'have to have' how much would you spend?

    Mine is about 25 quid for Leviticus "The Burial" ( Logistics remix ) but i think i played it twice!

    Also paid 40 quid for the AWOL Live 3 x LP some time back.

    and quite a few 20 quid tunes like Doc Scott / Rufige Kru - VIP Drumz / VIP Riders Ghost (The Origin), T.Power - Turquoise / The Mutant Remix and Andy C, Roll on / Cool Down

    So where do you draw the line when buying a tune? im more interested in Vynil really, not MP3's! :)

    About £20 each for "Ed Rush & Optical - Alien Girl" and for "Firefox - Bonanza Kid"

    But its the only way to ever get them now so it was worth it imo

    I played £25 for Aphex Twins Analogue Bubblebath, which I think is an all right price. I'm quite lucky with DnB though, I remember seeing Shy FX - Don't Wanna Know online 2nd hand for 25quid, when i got it for a fiver at a local 2nd hand record shop, but that's blatently cos they guy running the shop don't know what he's selling when it comes to dance/dnb

    i used to go over drawn by bout a tenner for promos that came out that i wanted then the bank would charge me 20 buck so technically i sometimes paid bout 25 quid for some promos but i didn't care because when that tune arrived and i put it on and thought:

    "hhmm, that wasn't really worth going overdrawn for"

    i dosed up on anesthetic and operated on the part of my brain that makes you care. Perfect solution!

    Burial must be worth a fair bit of dow

    Although its been released on a few different vinyl

    I know there was a release with Burial, Original Nuttah, and a couple other classic tunes all together

    I think its all about the Logistics Remix though, Original although a classic is a bit boring me tinkz.

    Logistics Remix is worth ALOT.

    I got that tune for free /airpunch

    I still do this too :D

    Most i'v spent on one tune is about a tenner.

    I'd pay more though for certain tunes.

    I was so sad when I bought Renegade Snares Foul Play Remix for £25 only to find that it was too slow to mix in my ususal set's speed :(

    I was also quite angry after spending £20 on Ebony Dubsters - Ra to find that it was coming out with the G-Dub remixes

    Really wish they'd left that tune alone now.
