I'd love nothing more than to press new and reissue Exotica releases on vinyl but the market is not there. I'm barely scraping by with vinyl that at one time did well (reissues of '70s punk, '60s garage and new bands that sound like that,) but now I can only press 500 which is not an easy thing when you do several of these a year.

There is a whole audiophile market that buys 180 and 200 gram analog reissues that end up costing between $20.00 tO $45.00 in stores, mostly reserved for jazz or uhem "classic" rock buffs (a company called Simply Vinyl has put out a slew of interesting records that fall between those cracks.)

I am currently thinking of a way to put out something Exotica on vinyl ...and will let you know the moment I do. It's unfortuanely come down to what won't lose money for the label...things have changed so much in the past few years...

You know the ritual of getting a record home, holding the cover, taking the vinyl out, the smell, the sound...it's something you just can't get out of a CD or goodness forbid an MP3 or IPOD. But people like us? We're in the minoriy.

In regards to the value of a record, it's fair to say that if a record is extremely rare and/or in PERFECT CONDITION...it can command a few bucks in the right place (a speciatly store, a mail-order catalog, etc.) Other than that, you know, the market is just flooded.

Oh I'm on a tangent, sorry!

Do any of Martin's records exist on 78 rpm?

Actually it should exist in the states as well...that came out in '58 so there should be a 78 counterpoint as mass production, though slow, continued through '59 (sort of like mono albums in the states through early '68!) They did continue making them for coin-ops as well as there were still functional jukes that played '78s up through the early '60s. A mint "Quiet Village" 78 played on a nice system would sound stunning!

I have the full '60s painting from the LUAU TIME album cover. It's a '60s print... I'm guessing from a Japanese home decor store.
