I've spent far too much money on Beach Boys vinyl over the years, but one of the few bargains I've chanced upon was (in the mid-90s) a UK test pressing of Holland with "We Got Love" for 5.
Nice!

It's been the opposite for me, I've been selling Beach Boys vinyl.  I sold my DCC Pet Sounds and I'm selling the major boots.  It's a drag but I need the money more than I need the records I guess.

I'm a sucker for coloured vinyl, so I was pleasantly surprised when I scored a French copy of "Beach Boys 66/69" on blue vinyl for $5.50.

Anyone know where I could get the cover to Shut Down Vol. 2? Oddly enough, I only have the vinyl (a friend gave it to me) but I don't have a cover for it.

Beach Boys 62/65 is out there also, on clear vinyl. The easy way to spot them in the racks: the colored/clear vinyls have an SPC catalog prefix, while the regular LPs have 2C.184
All numbers are in the upper left corner.

Yeah, it took me over 22 years to track that one down after first reading about it in Brad Elliot's Surf's Up in 1989. All copies I saw throughout my search were of the 2C.184... variety, until late last year.

Any idea what the ratio of black to coloured vinyl is for these comps?

Don't have a clue.  I bought  both the colored versions when they were released in 1978

I just scored a VG++ stock copy of "He's A Doll" by the Honeys for a song and a dance this weekend.  I was very shocked to see that one.  It will replace my VG copy I paid dearly for on ebay years ago.

Good for you!  That's one I'm still searching, your find  means there's hope!

Not a big deal, I know, but I won the Mojo Cabinessence vinyl from eBay yesterday. The SS box doesn't feel complete to me without it.

I got a duophonic original Wild Honey not too long ago.

I was expecting it to be crap but I can't find anything to really complain about.

Recent ones for me are:

Surf's Up on Stateside with the lyric sheet for 1.99 in Oxfam. Amongst some Rod Stewart and Richard Clayderman LPs at 6-8 each
Blondie Chaplin solo LP for 1 at a record fair in Reading (also there was Jimmy Page, probably looking for Zep boots!)
BWPS on double vinyl for 2 and Made in the USA 2LP for 50p at a local record stall
Smile Vigotone 2LP test pressing for 10 (see Smile bootleg thread for photos etc)

Re: eBay-my best buys were the Paul Stanley and Peter Criss solo LPs from '78(?). 3 each. When they arrived, the seller had sent me the signed copies he had sold for 30each!

My Best of the Beach Boys from '66 came in today! Bought it for the sole purpose of Kiss Me, Baby.
