I can't get tired of this record. The pain in his voice, the set list, arrangements, guests and covers made this performance unique and an instant classic.

one of my favorites. ( 200,000$ - 300,000$ - understandable ). my brother got that Unplugged when it came out back in the 90,s. later he gave it to me ( i still have it ). so for me it,s not just about the quality and historical value but also sentimental value.

"I've always said that the rock and roll market is the new fine art market," Julien said. "Millennials are starting to collect, and they're not collecting Monets and Picassos."

Says a man with a vested (!) interest in selling a cardigan for $200-300,000 bucks. Well, it might be a market, but it ain't no fine art market.

It's a shame groupies didn't hang on to their stained sheets and sheaths from back in the day. They could make a fortune auctioning that stuff off now.

"Unplugged". Where did the distortion on the acoustic guitar come from.

What about the Plaster Casters? Cynthia did OK with her plaster 'fine art' - everyone from Hendrix to Kiss to Jello Biafra, and still a thriving business - in reproductions, not new works (as far as I know).

Bit more intimate than a cardigan...

@BigYen I had no idea they were selling those. Wouldn't they need to pay royalties, I wonder?
