Good luck for me - good luck for you?

A couple of weeks ago I was in a St Louis record store and found 5 sealed copies of _Distressed Gentlefolk_ and 2 copies of Max's _The Best Kisser in the World_, all on vinyl and all $5. With those of you on this list in mind I bought three DGs (one for myself) and both TBKITWs, so I have 2 of each available.
As I said, the DGs are still factory sealed, so the vinyl itself is unplayed. However, there is a notch cut into the top left corner - I assume these were liquidated from the factory.
The TBKITWs were promos and have the gold "FOR PROMOTION ONLY" stamp on the back's bottom left corner. The "Casanova of Cocktail" promotional sticker has been stuck to the front album covers. The vinyl itself is not mint, but there aren't any noticeable scratches/gashes, and I think they would both play nicely.
I consider all 4 albums to be worth the $5 I paid. If anybody without a turntable would like any of these, I'll be happy to send a tape along with the album. For the DGs I will also send a copy of the insert in case you want to keep the album sealed; this has credits, lyrics for three songs, and pictures or illustrations of many people including Syd Barrett, Bela Lugosi, and a cat band.
However, I'm not going to be completely selfless. For about a week I'd like to make this offer trade-only. If anybody has some JBC vinyl (esp. older) they would like to trade for any of these, please let me know. In about a week I'll repost a list of what's still available and sell these for the $5 I paid, plus postage.
