hi
i have this old Roberta Flack album, Killing them softly, When you play side 1 it is indeed Roberta flack on the whole side 1, but side 2 appears to be J Giels band for the whole side 2.?? not sure how this would have got pressed in the factory but i am curious how much something like this is worth if anything?? :D

General rule of thumb.....unless it is a collectible artist like the Beatles, a mispressed album isn't worth much. If anything (to me), it makes the record less valuable, since half of the lp isn't what you wanted.

Ms. Flack and the Geils band put out some tremendous music back in the day, but if you're looking for $$$$, this album probably won't be your answer.

hi
thanx for the reply.. Basically i have transferred all my vinyl to digital and need to get rid of the records. the only one that i thought "might" be worth something is this one. I was kinda just not wanting to see this album on the news selling for 100K and being the moron who gave it away.

thanx again for your reaponse

On a technical and somewhat pedantic level, this is actually illegal.
