How much would you pay?

Of all the Record Store Day 2014 exclusives, the one now going for the most dough on the internet is Jack White's "Lazaretto" -- aka the "World's Fastest Released Record" which was recorded live, mastered and pressed in about three hours on Saturday (4/19). One copy already sold for a whopping $649.99 on eBay. If you just want to hear the thing, White has put it on YouTube and you can listen to that -- and watch a making-of video and check out the tracklist to his new album -- below.

Other profitable RSD14 flips were the Mudhoney Live at KEXP test pressing ($500); the R.E.M. Unplugged Box set (going for around $200), and the eight-LP Cake box set (averaging around $400 so it breaks down to $50 per LP).

There's a huge difference between being offered and being bought. Are the other items besides jack's sales too?

True and I heard the 600 dollar sale one turned out to be bullshit. Guy was fucking around and trying to screw with the seller. The sale never went through

Happens on Ebay all the time

The moment I started seeing adult not knowing how to punctuate properly, I knew suicide was the right choice.

^ I think the above should say "adults" to be grammatically correct. If you're going to be a grammar douche on an internet message board, at least have the courtesy to proof-read your own posts.

Friend. I'm fairly certain that a typo is not the same thing as a grammatical error. You do understand the difference, don't you? While it's certainly true that they are both incorrect, and for that I applaud your attention to detail. But your presumption that a typo be the same as incorrect capitalization or use of a comma when it should be a semicolon, for example, is a grave mistake. I beg of you, friend, please pay attention.

>Who is more gimicky, Jack White or Flaming Lips?

Thank you, friend. That's probably the most relevant question that's been thrown out on the Vegan of Brooklyn site in quite some time. Jack White, like him or not, is cut from the cloth of being more real. Yeah, sure, he ripped off the Flat Duo Jets, but his borrowing from the blues is no different from Led Zep, The Stones, The Dead or The Black Keys for that matter. The F Lips, however, are full on shlock these days. My favorite record of theirs, 'Clouds Taste Metallic, I feel was the last album they did that really said something. It's a sad case. I'm deeply torn up over it, but such is life.

"While it's certainly true that they are both incorrect, and for that I applaud your attention to detail."

^that's not a full sentence.

"But your presumption that a typo be the same as incorrect capitalization"

^the be should be is

"use of a comma when it should be a semicolon"

^there was no incorrect use of a comma instead of a semicolon anywhere.

ok, I'm done. You're just not very smart. Friend. bye

"Zorro on doughnuts" is still undeniably the best put down in the history of rock music.

Say what you will about Jack White, he does know how to come up with a great gimmick.

^ I meant for vinyl, specifically. AF haven't quite gotten there yet (though their vinyl actually sounds incredibly good, which is more than I can say for most Third Man releases).

Still waiting for years for one of you smarmy, jackass hipster clowns to make a humorous comment instead of another one of your idiotic hummus so-called jokes.
