Thats all ****
A rare tune will always be a rare tune and will not lose it's value (see the REAL king oney 7" or the aksumites 12" and few others)...all the tunes repressed by digikiller , i had seen the 1st press again for sale for twice the price i paid before the repress. Surely if you pay 250/300£ (or more...much more) for a tune like forces or for any other rare (but not too much) tune , well you risk to lose money even without a repress!!
Just spend your €£$¥ with caution and intelligence (said by one who also risked a lot and is some case failed)
Digikiller is creating many omologate selections , a funny way to call that.... "digifillers"...but a good selecta will still stay 3 step in front of that (if that matter when you play in front of people who mostly dont even care if you play from cd or vinyls) , that's what i think...there's still 1000 tunes as good as forces to play. Soon or late RB will repress enaught to get himself his Limo but by now he havent totally destroyed the interesting , curious , original , deep , exclusive world of 1st press records and exclusive selections done by people who can dig deep into this music.
What i hope is that finally something will remain to those who put a lot of energy to create roots meeting where people can still be shovked to hear a new tune or something that he was waiting to hear on soundsystem for longtime...it's also a good part of reggae!
Remember also that what he's putting on market is and will always be a reproduction...you'll see that after 5/10 years next to those reproductions. Rare Originals will be rarer and rarer as the interess is still growing and knowledge is growing too...it will lose value for the first short period but than it will be as rare and expensive as before (even more) as people will again realize how rare is still the 1st press.
If there's not hidden stocks of that Forces around , in 10 years (if world will still be in his place) you'll see how rare will be to see a 1st press for sale around...so keep those rare things in your box! What lose value is what is only hyped and not really rare.
The few that run sessions of that kind of deep 70's/80's music only , know who can still shock an esigent audience with a non-omologate selection and it's up to them to be able to create those situations...you rant that many tunes are no more exclusive? Well so organise things with people able to play rare things
luckly it's full of serious selectors out here...that dont support digikiller because they dont need to do so. If it's all about how well you spend your money...if you buy intelligently you are not risking much.
Honestly i see many rants about how exclusive selections are but i don't see many of those exclusive roots sessions around.
Don't get it personal RB , me joke about limo...
just reasoning on situation
