The Joy Formidable


First You Have to Get Mad CD

TJF000 CD, released 2009 (UK)

This disc was trouble for late-adopting collectors. It was a self-released CD, limited to 500 copies. It was a complete, early live set from the Garage in London. I saw exactly one of them sell over the period of about a year when I first started paying attention. It went for a lot. Then, another was sold in early 2013, and it also went for a large sum. People must have noticed at that point, as several others appeared in short order after that point. I thought the price might go down after the most enthusiastic collectors overspent, but it did not. It held steady in the $150 range for several years, but then dropped quite a bit. It settled into the $65-75 range. There does not seem to be a real catalogue number for this disc, but on the underside of the CD, it says TJF000, so that's what we're going with.
