I'd like to add a cassette version of UP to my collection. I want to stick to Factory UK releases without spending a fortune.

There is one available via Discogs - a 1985 re-issue that is aesthetically pleasing in a Factory way. It's listed as near mint for £24.99. Is this a fair price?

If it's the purple box one grab it....have a hunch they will increase in value,but thats beside the point.the real value is having it in your collection.even the plain cased version with the textured card inlay is a good choice,imho.

It's not the purple box but it does have the textured card. Downside is that it's a re-issue. Upside is it's Factory UK and has the classic Factory look. Some of the other release versions are less visually appealing.

Just spoke with the seller "uncle-cha-cha" and his sealed UP-tapes are legit and if any collector is out there that likes still sealed items,go visit his ebay-site as he has only a few left.to my knowledge,he bought up a stores excess and that is why he has these "artifacts"(fitting for the age)....will post our banter for confirmation,when he gives me the ok!
