Ebay Madness – Sabre, Shotgun Sally, Sgt. Roxx, Uprising, Graham Bonnet, KK Wilde, Taken, Fantasia, The Rolling Stones

Saber - Do Or DieSaber – Do Or Die (indie release) ends at $140.38 

Seller – delclemons
Starting Price = 99 cents
Bids = 14

Described as AOR/Melodic Hard Rock, there’s not much else to describe Saber except to compare them to other rarities. No release year was given, only that this was an indie release by the band.

Shotgun Sally - Steamy Session (1993)Shotgun Sally – Steamy Session (1993, indie) ends at $168.05

Seller – delclemons
Starting Price = 99 cents
Bids = 22

Another big sell for delclemons, one of the best sellers/collectors in the scene. I’d love to know how he finds these indie releases, what’s his secret? Described as Roxxi meets Stage Dolls = Melodic Hard Rock from Norway.

Sgt. Roxx - Push and Squeeze (1990/2006 Italian reissue)Sgt. Roxx – Push and Squeeze (1990) ends at $170.27 for a 2006 Italian reissue

Seller – eagleyeeiii
Starting Price = $5.99
Bids = 28

Sgt. Roxx is one of the “holy grail” CDs for Hard Rock collectors but this isn’t an original…..this is an Italian import from 2006. Bootleg? Probably. I’m in various collector’s forums everyday so I would have jumped on an official reissue but I’ve never heard of it. I went to Google and nothing came up. Buyer beware!

Uprising - Let It Ride (1993)Uprising – Let It Ride (1993, indie) ends at $179.50

Seller – delclemons
Starting Price = 99 cents
Bids = 16

Score three in one segment for delclemons! Like I said, the guy knows Hard Rock rarities, so I expect not only a CD that isn’t around much but also a very expensive one at the end of the day. Uprising comes from somewhere in the Midwest U.S. and are compared to Dokken and Valentine.

Graham Bonnet - The Rock Singer’s Anthology (1990, Japanese import)Graham Bonnet – The Rock Singer’s Anthology (1990) Japanese import sells for $258.37

Seller – yuzyp
Starting Price = 99 cents
Bids = 8

I own this CD, just not the Japanese import. The last time I saw this album fetch big money was back in August ’07 when it got $203.51 for the European version. Lucky for me I picked this up for $20 in ’99! It’s long out of print and highlights Bonnet’s days with The Marbles, Rainbow, and his solo career.

KK Wilde - Cocaine Cowboy (1991)KK Wilde – Cocaine Cowboy (1991) sells for $266

Seller – c.lieck
Starting Price = 99 cents
Bids = 7

99 cents seems to be a magic starting price in this edition of Ebay Madness! KK Wilde is another one of those bands that has become highly collectible over the last 10 years. COCAINE COWBOY is actually the band’s 2nd record, there’s a bit of confusion out there because the debut, ROCK N ROLL, also came out in 1991. I haven’t seen this CD for a long time so I knew it would get a high price.

Taken - Smell The Groove (1992)Taken – Smell The Groove (1992, indie) ends at $316

Seller – bgard100
Starting Price = $7.99
Bids = 23

Another indie release that not only fetches big bucks but is widely sought after. The band members and roadies have chimed in over at the Heavy Harmonies Taken page for a little added history to the band and release. The auction describes it as ’80s Hair/Glam Metal from Philadelphia. Interesting note: the winner for this disc also won the KK Wilde disc above.

Fantasia - s/tFantasia – s/t (indie release) sells for $455

Seller – delclemons
Starting Price = 99 cents
Bids = 20

Independent release by members of another indie Hard Rock band called Satin Street. The music is described as David Lee Roth era Van Halen and there are a few MP3 samples in the auction listing to check out. Big money!

And now for the highest grossing CD I could find for this installment…..

The Rolling Stones – 94/95 Voodoo Lounge Tour Souvenir Japanese In Store Promo Sampler CD sells with BUY IT NOW for $3000!

Seller – luvercd
BUY IT NOW Price – $3000
Bids – 1

I love seeing things like this! Who in their right mind has $3000 to spend on a CD? We’ll never know because the buyer’s ID was kept private by the seller. It’s an “in-store sampler” for the Japanese Voodoo Lounge Tour so I’m thinking this was free for the lucky employee that convinced his employer to part with it after the tour was over. I also figure collector’s got a hold of this for $30-$50 as an import from sellers in Japan pre-Internet and maybe even in Ebay’s infancy. This is one of those discs I would love to run into…..imagine finding it and either selling it or being able to say you own a disc that sold for $3000! Not sure what I would do but my wife would make me sell it. Here is a link for more info on this CD: http://eil.com/shop/moreinfo.asp?catalogid=206730
