Not really a hint but maybe a hint but also just some info:
"I'm not telling you the exact amount, because I know y'all, and know you'll use it to guess the record lol.
But I'll tell you I purchased it for $17 a couple of weeks ago and has since rised to the $27-$30 ballbark" Also, @agutierrezb would love an OG pressing but does not have one.

More info: Needles & Grooves AoTM /// Vol. 4 - October 2019 /// TBA
1. Don't take the 20 albums thing too literally. I didn't really count, but what I meant is that there aren't many releases pre-1982 that match both the UEFA and the Puzzle clues, which takes me to my second point.
2. Some of you (I'm not saying who) are in the right direction in regards to cracking the clues. The shortlist of albums I mentioned in point #1 can be if you dive into discogs/wiki with both clues in hand.

Oh thank you for clearing that up. That definitely went right over my head. Because I'm really bad at guessing games too.
People keep saying they are bad at guessing games, yet this community keeps guessing it every single time.
I worked my a** off to come up with clues that wouldn't give the answer right away, because I know there are some FBI agents among us who are able to trace any clue to the correct pick.
