now that does seem ridiculous. Are their reissues always so expensive, or just this one?

Very happy with my 1992 Analogue Productions stereo.reissue, remastered by Doug Sax. One of the very first AP reissues.

Their reissues are always pricy. Limited editions using vintage gear.

From their website: "For mono masters, the engineers have deployed vintage Danish Lyrec valve reel-to-reel tape recorders and Ortofon valve cutting lathes – machines actually designed to work synergistically by the same exacting manufacturers (Ortofon’s renowned Dr. Schlegel was the pioneer of the moving coil cutterhead – a major advancement in mastering technology that dates from the close of the Second World War – and the company remains the industry leader in valve record-cutting technology after more than 60 years spent manufacturing the specialist mastering engineer’s lathe of choice). Stereo masters also use vintage Neumann and Lyrec valve lathes in tandem with another technological rarity, the hefty EMI BTR2 reel-to-reel valve tape recorder, a wonderful, robust machine so revered in mastering circles that even EMI’s deadly rivals, Decca, once swore by it, as did the BBC, IBC and others, including, naturally, EMI’s own Abbey Road facility."

FWIW, almost of their releases have sold out so there is a market. I’m guessing these are for audiophiles.  For example, the John Lee Hooker one sells for £500.

This version unfortunately does not include the piano comping that I added, vastly improving the session.

A couple of months back on Discogs, their reissue of Leonid Kogan's Beethoven violin concerto has sold for $ 2100.

Yes, a reissue, and yes, more than two thousand bucks.

I think I saw where their Mozart sold for about $2500 or so.

Collecting is collecting, it hasn't got anything to do with music, like a classic Porsche 911 of the sixties hasn't go anything to do with daily commuting. One collects things for itself, not for their functions.

That has tempted me before. Quite a bit cheaper as I recall.
