I have recently acquired a seven inch promo copy (Demonstration Record) of Hello Goodbye /I Am The Walrus . It’s in pretty good condition with a few non feelable surface marks and a wee bit of surface noise. I’m going to clean it today with my Spincare machine (best forty quid I’ve ever spent) in the hope that will lift the soundstage a wee bit. I have what appears to be the original promotional sleeve with one or two small tears.
I’d love to be able to keep it but COVID job loss means that I need to sell, but I’m finding it difficult to value. There are three copies currently on Discogs valued at £1700, £5000 and £6500. The lowest value seems about OK to me but I have seen other copies sell historically for around £800. Any advice on what the market will sustain would be gratefully received so I can get it on E-Bay and pay my rent.
