What's the rarest CD in your collection?

My CD collection has dwindled a lot in recent years. I don't really buy much new music these days and a lot of the CDs I used to have either went missing or I sold them.

The rarest CD that I still have I'd have to say is "Baypath Rd." by the band For Squirrels. I also have two of their "Plymouth" EP as well.

How 'bout you?

it WAS my withdrawn promo copy of Marilyn Manson's "Smells Like Children", but i needed some vacation money, so i sold it on ebay for a ridiculous amount.

now it's probably my japanese import of nirvana's "hormoaning"

German release of Neil Young's 'Time Fades Away'

REO Speedwagon's "Lost in a Dream" and "This Time We Mean It"

A lot of stuff goes in and out of print. Would have to check on these:

Ted Nugent- "Tooth, Fang, Claw" and "Call of the Wild"

Molly Hatchet- "Beatin' The Odds"

Blue Oyster Cult- "Spectres", "Club Ninja" and "Imaginos"

Radio promos and bootlegs, mostly. Probably the single rarest is an original Kit Kat Acoustic Break CD with They Might Be Giants doing a live set. It was a short-lived series hosted by Pat DiNizio that was passed around to college radio stations, and I can't imagine there are more than 100-200 of those things floating around.

The CDs are green? Can you take a pic or something? I bought that years ago and guess I don't know what I have.

It's a shame they couldn't get rights to the sample for the re-master.

Madonna vinyl LP length picture discs

Madonna cd album and exclusive song promos

Prince shaped picture disc

original Disconnet 12 inch DJ ONLY mix vinyl releases

acetate from U2

Michael Jackson 45 vinyl colored discs

Michael Jackson "The Bad Mixes" sponsored by "Monster Cable" and produced, exclusively by Bruce Sweiden (?); all 10 copies are numbered and sealed

a complete set of London US Rolling Stones LP releases

Promo ONLY sales box promoting the Beatles "Anthology" release; the box is constructed to be the width of the number of a complete set of Beatle US releases, and the spine of this box has the spines of all of the Beatle Capitol LP's. Inside is a sales promotion notebook and other sales information

This is just the tip of the iceberg of what I have, that I can recall.

Nothing fancy here. I do have:

Metallica - Mandatory Metallica ~ it's a double disc greatest hits that came out around '96 after Load. Radio stations gave 'em away. Supposedly only 800 or so were made. Probably worthless these days though since anyone can cobble together their own greatest hits.

What's the tracklist on this Mike? Was it remastered?

not worthless, still does quite well in auctions. as a mega tallica fan it was one that I wished I'd been able to get in on, but no dice. and I just don't see the point of paying premiums for tracks that I have already.

and to dvd josh, it is not remastered.
