Someone has purchased off eBay an unopened, longbox-packaged CD--remember those?--of Living Colour's debut, Vivid (1988-Epic)...for a grand! Seriously.
We still love this album, as well as Vernon and the guys, but why would anybody part with that kind of loot for a version whose only rarity is the bulky cardboard packaging? Who the hell paid $1,025 (plus shipping, of course) for a standard issue release of which hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of copies are still out there? Man...this is why the terrorists hate us.
