Classic Records has proven to be an Audiophile Company second to none in the new millennium. But Classic Records, unlike the top Audiophile Company of the past, does not place Limited Edition numbers on their LP jackets. They do not limit the pressings for collectors to 5,000 or 7,500 pieces with corresponding numbers on each LP.
Classic Records could press tens of thousands of these "Limited Edition" copies and no one would ever know. But 2 years ago, Classic Records changed their vinyl weight from 180 gram to 200 gram. No expert Mymusicfix knows has been able to decipher a true difference in quality with this 20 gram weight increase.
What this change did do for Collectors of the finest vinyl pressings was establish a First Edition element to Classic Records Audiophile pressings. All Classic Records 180 Gram Out of Print pressings are now Very Limited Edition Collector's First Edition Pressings.
These First Editions have become some of the rarest pressings in the Audiophile Collector's Market. Just try to find them at any Audiophile Retailer. You might still find some limited inventory of MFSL or DCC pressings but I will bet my bottom dollar that you won't be able to find any of these 180 gram Classic Records First Editions. They are simply gone from the market and Mymusicfix has seen these First Editions sell for over $300.
These are tremendous titles and artists that Mymusicfix still has in these 180 Gram First Editions but we have very few pieces left of each title and prices will
continue to rise as inventory continues to dwindle.
