I never understood this thread...who uses wathces anymore? We all have phones that tell time. And if I wanted to buy a watch, why would i do it on Ebay? And what does it all have to do with Tull anyway ? Time for Everything? Play in Time? Watching Me , Watching You ?
Stitch in Time or Stormwatch maybe

Couple of interesting items sold on ebay this week.
A genuine MGM "Toe" stock copy of Sunshine Day/Aeroplane with small UK centre hole went for £245.45p.
A counterfeit MGM copy of Sunshine Day/Aeroplane with the band's name correctly spelt on the label and with a large US style centre hole sold for $36.
When you buy vinyl it helps to know what to expect just like autographs. Lots of things are duplicated. Prices are a clue but it pays to get expert advice. I tend to look for newer items in general.
Tull fans are fortunate that counterfeit 7" singles are few and far between.
The Toe/Tull large centre hole counterfeit was a deliberate attempt to deceive and I know at least two people who bought a copy thinking they had the real deal and paid a lot of money for the privilege. Some dealers will also try and pass it on as the real thing with "a second pressing" as part of the description - utterly incorrect and fraudulant.
Rule of thumb - if it's got a large centre hole and the band's name correctly spelt it's a counterfeit and worth £25 - £30 as a curio.
The other counterfeit I know of is a Penny Peeps single on the UK Liberty label. A genuine copy is worth quite a bit, definately in the £100 bracket, but a copy again with a large centre hole is a counterfeit and worth £6 - £10.

Silly me...a friend gave me a mint condition 'My God' bootleg.....and I figured it wasn't worth much...after all they made zillions....so I was gonna offer it on our forum to whomever wanted it, but stopped at a record store on the way home and the guy gave me a CD in trade for it...piece of crap 'Imagine Dragons' CD that my kid wanted. When I got home I looked on e-bay and saw the exact version ( cover and label) that I traded for a $7.95 used CD, was going for between $40 and $80 !
Lovely O16 NY signed by 'Jethro Tull'. Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull favoured these guitars in the '70s so there is a strong reason for the signing. This is such a comfortable playing little guitar and in superb condition for the age.
futureshock: Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Marnie Kringles, Reindeer Kibble, peace of heart and generosity of hand, in this season.

maddogfagin: Sure are - the Cornish sub species (originally shipwrecked off Land's End whilst on transit to Aberdeen and escaped to shore) are devilish little blighters at the best of times.

futureshock: The secret language of birds: millions of yrs old. Just 18+ yrs ago, someone tackled that idea and radiated music back on the topic. That's why it's one of the best reviewed solo albums out there! Chirp that in your blender and take it to the riverside.
