Readily available on CD?

RE: Readily available on CD?
Since I'm a big believer in not buying an album I already have on one format until it wears out, I still have a bunch of my Cheap Trick music on cassette.

The time has come that I have to replace three of them though.

All Shook Up, The Doctor and Lap of Luxury have given up the ghost of working properly on cassette.

Are they readily available on CD so I can upgrade?

You can find All Shook Up and Lap of Luxury really cheap (7 bucks new, 3 bucks used, or less) but the Doctor is kinda rare so it gets up into the 20 dollar range. But then again I think they re-released The Doctor last summer so you might be able to get it new pretty cheap.
I prefer to listen to Cheap Trick.

Question regarding "new" vs "collectible": what is the difference? I need to replace Special One-somehow got a huge scratch on it and it stops at Pop Drone-which I love...maybe it was from me over playing it. I was also looking at CT '97 and that's where I got confused on new vs collectible.
Help......

Surprised people still listen to cassettes. I had hundreds I bought from the 80's that I've kept up until a couple years ago; I threw them away- assuming that they'd probably never end up as collector's items. Incidentally, some of those tapes were Cheap Trick. I would've given you my Cheap Trick tapes.
And with all the loves and hates and passions just like mine...

I have some CT 8-track tapes. I think I have CT, In Color, Heaven Tonight, Budokan, and Dream Police.

It's in the eye of the beholder. I have a price guide for cds, but the ones it says are worth more aren't always. Original printings of stuff like Soundgarden's Badmotorfinger with the bonus SOMMS disc are worth a little more and if it is still in the long box they are worth a lot more. Cds that got pulled like Ice T's band Body Count, they had a cd called Cop Killer. If you can find the ones with that song still on it they are worth a bit more. The thing is some people will charge $45 for a cd that should only be worth $20, but with ebay and amazon around you will usually find someone willing to sell a collectible cd for far less than the next guy. They usually get snatched up pretty quickly, but the deals are out there. Basically if it's something like CT The Doctor, the original pressings are collectible and the remasters, not so much, but you still might have to pay an inflated price for some of the remasters because they were imports.
