    Hi,

    Reluctantly thinking about selling my 'Let There Be Rock' purple sleeve South African LP to help pay for a ticket for a Wembley which I missed. Sleeve is EX++, vinyl NM condition. Any idea on its value at present? Early 1980 stamper date.

    Cheers

    Apparently they go up to $500.

    Oh boy, if I had the cash...

    Posted By: angus5041How much for the standard SA LTBR.. Isnt the Green/purple a reissue anyway ??
    No. Let There Be Rock was only issued once in South Africa. Prices are $2-300 for VG quality and $300+ for EX and above.
  5.  
    so what is the standard LTBR SA version if not an original ?

    The standard LTBR SA is the green/purple cover.
  6.  
    thanks MB ,,so the normal red lettering LTBR is a 2nd issue/re-issue ??

    I'm not sure that's actually correct. I've always thought the red lettering LTBR was the original, and the green/purple cover a later reissue.

    Oh, well I may be wrong, but I have always tought (based on the information I have gathered) that the green/purple was first pressing and then the normal cover a reissue.

    The South Africa was a mistake wasn't it?

    Misprinted and then corrected later on if I am not mistaken.

    The buyer must be mad

    It’s a great item but worth half that at the most.
