SHM CDS are a rip off! 2008-08-03 16:41:16 I have been a music collector for many years, and I was very excited about the new limited edition Super High Materials re-issues of some of my favorite classic rock titles. I purchased over 2 dozen titles by Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Velvet Underground, Steely Dan & others. Being limited editions, I thought they would be a good investment even with the $50 price tag. Boy was I wrong! Not even a year after their initial release, these titles are being re-issued as "encore" pressings at half the price of the 1st pressings! Universal Japan lied to the buying public. If they are being re-issued, they are not limited editions, and from a collectable standpoint the are worthless!! I will never purchase another one of these titles again. I don't appreciate being lied to, and hope some of you out there will join me in boycotting these cds.
