Why Pay the Earth for the Unsuccessful?

Today I’m annoyed. I have just paid £30 pounds for a Soft Cell CD that I’ve sat and waited on for ages. Their forgotten commercial disaster that  was “This Last Night in Sodom” barely received a CD release and therefore is deemed a collectors item it seems. Why?

A group that has sold millions will have a few more collectable singles sure, but a whole album? Just because it didn’t sell at the time,  why should be penalised in not having a proper release later on in a new format. Even the “rarities” CD “Bedsit Demos” fetches only 7 or 8 pounds from dealers. Still, this price tag means I’ll enjoy it even more hopefully…
