In Reply to: LP recordings question posted by Michaelson on October 08, 1997 at 12:46:30:
: I have in my collection several 33 1/3 LP records that have, the complete Raiders dialogue, as well as one from the Temple of Doom. These are in mint condition, as are all the recordings I have of the IJ movies. Has anyone ever come across these before, and does anyone have an idea what they may be worth on the collectors market? Regards.
Actually, neither of these recordings have the COMPLETE dialogue, rather an abridged version with the film's music and sound effects as well. It's not unlike a radio broadcast. I have RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK: THE MOVIE ON CASSETTE (the same as your LP version, with a large booklet with photos in the jacket case). These differ from the "read along" ones geared for children -- those are much shorter, have a narrator, and feature voices by different actors.
The LP you mention I think is pretty rare nowadays. I guess that if it's in good condition, you could sell it for three to four times its original cost. ($30???) If you hold onto it, however, it should significantly increase in value over the next few years I think.
