I think that my rarest item is probably this PORCUPINE TREE Sampler CD that I have here which appears to be basically hand burned and labeled, as well as the liner being on what seems to be practically red construction paper.

It is at least printed though, rather than handwritten (;)), tracks being:

1. Stranger By The Minute
2. She's Moved On
3. The Rest Will Flow
4. Slave Called Shiver
5. Waiting
6. Strip The Soul
7. Sleep Of No Dreaming
8. Hate Song

and which I got signed first by John Wesley (who said SW won't sign bootlegs, and I said it's NOT a bootleg, it's a promo that I got from someone who had every right to have it!) then by Steven Wilson who was bewildered by it at first till I told him where and who it came from.

I don't know if there's more than this one out there, but I'm sure there's probably a small handful. Here's the only pic I have of it, which shows the things I brought home from that particular concert.

I also have a promo copy of Systematic Chaos signed to me from Mike Portnoy, that might be worth something, but it's not that rare I'm sure.

I think most of the rare CDs I have aren't rare because not many were printed--they're rare because nobody else bothered to buy them. 

Although I do have a copy of Superior's "Younique," which is out of print.

No rare CDs here  :'( Though once Charlie's CD FINALLY gets here I'll have at least one  ;D And come on, lets admit it, that's the only one that matters anyway  :tup

Unless O3 part one signed by Charlie is rare? I mean you can still order it at the moment so probably not :(

My brother has Coma Divine II by PT which I think is pretty rare.

I have a ton of singles and import stuff from Queensryche, Rush, Iron Maiden, and Dream Theater. One of the highlights is my Japanese copy of Falling Into Infinity which comes with the bonus 3" disc.

I think one of the rarer non-DT items I've got is the first Rocket Scientists album, which was released in '93 and has been out of print for quite some time.

It was just finally re-released a few months ago in the form of a 5-disc boxed set which I recommend you all get :)

I don't have any rare cds I think.. but now I come to think of it I have to go to the attic and look through the records up there; maybe there's some rare ones... on the other hand; I don't have a record player anymore  :d'oh:

Yeah and also WDADU signed by Charlie.

I have a Bob McGrath (Bob from Sesame Street) CD which is signed. I bet you guys don't have it, and I'm breaking all the rules and making that a rare CD.

It will be rare soon enough. Like in another 2 or 3 months when I have been in NY for that time where the last few boxes are.

I got a copy of Chocolate Starfish & the Hot Dog Flavored Water (I was 11, still that album is quite good) and it came with a second CD that had this one song that was a collaboration between Limp Bizkit and Run-DMC that nobody else that I know of had.
