Horse And Goat is pretty tame by Trevor Brown's standards, too.
I have a copy of "Jesus Christ" by Smell & Quim. In any other context the cover would be flatly illegal in nearly every country, but because it appears to be medical in nature it somehow must squeak by censors. Keep that in mind before you decide to click that discogs link.
There is no way to kill a joke like explaining it to death, which is easily accomplished in 300 characters.
This delusional seller is asking $200 for a "rare and valuable" "BEATLES RECORD", which is obviously worth quite a bit of coin in his/her mind. The seller is not even open to negotiations. Unfortunately for his/her grandiose plans, the record being sold is just one of unaccountably many Beatles orchestral covers. BEATLES RECORD? I don't think so.
This one happens to have a median price of $2.00, so the seller is only off by a factor of 100.
I got a good laugh out of this. Good luck with the sale, sir or madam.
I played it and used Soundhound to try and identify the artist and it turns out it's by a Canadian Shoegaze band called "No Joy". It said the song was called "He Cried" so I guess it must be a test pressing of this 7" single: https://www.discogs.com/Marnie-Stern-and-No-Joy-Your-Kids-Are-Going-To-Love-This-He-Cried/release/3454522
God knows how this record by a canadian band that was pressed in Nashville, TN ended up in a London record bin but there you go. I love it when this sorta weird stuff happens, one of the best parts of vinyl.
If you get your hands on the European cassette version of Dead Kennedys' In God We Trust Inc., it has a message that states, "To the buyer: Side 2 of this cassette is completely blank for your own use."
Having my ever growing vinyl collection reach 400+ records, it was becoming more and more impossible to find a record that I wanted to play. I don't know why I waited so long to alphabetize my collection, but I finally pulled the trigger and got these awesome dividers and this pack of letters and numbers. Life has been so much easier. Now if I can just organize the rest of my life now...
I don't feel that records with water damaged covers are a loss... I still grab them. Clean em up (I have a Spin Clean), get them in a new sleeve and new outer jackets (https://www.amazon.com/Record-Supply-Co-Outer-Jackets/dp/B00CYMJM06/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1516389833&sr=8-9&keywords=record+jackets), and listen away.
So I went with my wife to feed her 90 year old grandmothers bird. I knew she had some vinyls laying around and today I found them. This was in there in pretty good condition. I gave it a listen. It's a 45 so its quick. Had some of JFK's speech in it and some of the flight control audio. As you can tell form the picture it is Narrated by Hugh Downs. Here is a link to the audio. And here is a link to the Discog page
This might be my favorite find yet.
To the person who instantly downvoted this after posting and before I could comment, fuck you.
Fun fact: He does a for-real brief guest appearance on the Regis Philbin Christmas Album - which I believe has not made it to vinyl as of yet. He's Santa Claus on "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer". Doesn't sing, though ... just says the lines.
So the preorder I placed in Februrary finally came through to deliver this absolute beauty to me today.
This vinyl set is amazing, both the records themselves and its packaging, and it instantly became the holy grail of my collection.
The set comes with five(!) red records, containing the entirety of the Fellowship of the Ring Soundtrack. Also included is a booklet with information on the recording of every single track, and what looks like a third of a poster of Middle Earth, foreshadowing a future release of the remaining two Soundtracks.
Here's the Amazon link if you want to check it out. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B079PDFGZK/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_U_x_zunZAbKC3VNXM
Hey guys! I’ve been wanting to get into vinyl for a few years. I started doing research this January and bought my LP-120 at the beginning of March. I know I’ve gone a little crazy, and my wallet hates me at this point, but I am addicted!
I couldn’t figure out how I wanted to display the vinyl, shelves seemed like a really expensive option for such a huge wall. Ultimately I decided to just buy trim from Lowe’s for the lip of the shelf, and a crown molding insert for underneath. I absolutely love it! What do you guys think?
For anyone interested the display records are:
Ed Sheeran - Plus Garden State Soundtrack No Doubt - Magic Kingdom Arcade Fire - Everything Now Jeff Buckley - Grace Taylor Swift - reputation The Smiths - The Queen is Dead The Beatles - Abbey Road Michael Jackson - Thriller FleetwoodMac - Rumors Haim - Something to tell you Weezer - The blue album John Bellion - The human condition Daft punk - Random access memories Lana Del Rey - Born to die Justin Timberlake - The 20/20 experience 500 days of summer soundtrack The Goo Goo Dolls - Dizzy up the girl The Who - Tommy Taylor swift - 1989 The 1975 - The 1975 Halsey - Badlands Adele - 25 Pink Floyd - Dark side of the moon
Now spinning : Bon Iver - 22, a million
I keep getting questions about the speaker stands, here they are.
Atlantic 77335799 Speaker Stands for Bookshelf Speakers up to 20 lbs - Pair (Black) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B007P8DKDE?ref=yo_pop_ma_swf
First of all. I think only one song on his album went platinum. That being "save dat money" the album as a whole is only certified RIAA Gold. Secondly, 1500 is a pretty standard release for an independent artist, which he is.
Also if it's so EXTREMELY RARE, why can you still buy it on amazon?
Thanks for the stats of the world though.
Here's the website: http://www.meethue.com/en-US Basically, you plug a little base station in to your router and then the lights communicate with that. Then when you're on your network you can do all kinds of crazy set ups. What's really cool is when you can create one side of the room as totally red and the other side as totally blue (or something similar).
If you really want to get crazy with it, check out https://ifttt.com/ You can set up all kinds of automated triggers for your lights. For example:
Band: Red Fang
Albem: Red Fang
Turntable: Victrola Modern 3-Speed Bluetooth Turntable with 50 Watt Speakers, Green Piano Finsh
Slipmat: I bought a few and they are all great
Do your self a favor and check out some of their music videos on YouTube "prehistoric dogs" "wires" ect
Portland Oregon band and they're pretty good!
The album is not rare, it was a huge seller. The problem is most used copies I've seen in the wild are trashed. I've never seen one in good enough condition to where I would actually buy it. Most new copies I've seen have been Euro public domain trash.
I'd like to find a clean old pressing or get the AP 45 if it was still available at "normal prices".
This version appears to still be in print:
Can't comment on the quality as I've not heard it.
Btw, if you like that album, look for "Getz Au Go Go".
Try these. They’ve worked great for me.
1.25" Platinum Silicone Hemisphere Bumper, Non-Skid Isolation Feet with Adhesive - 20 Duro - 8 Pack https://www.amazon.com/dp/B075KHNK62/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glc_fabc_9iY-FbM6ZJSDB?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
Here you go - cut me in on the prize!
EDIT: And here is the actual picture disc.
Not sure if you are looking for an early pressing or trying to find this album only in the wild but amazon is selling a fantastic pressing of this album for less than $10.
Yeah, it’s literally just a picture frame stand I had lying around! Works really well!

Just beat me to it.
A link for the lazy: Dirt Cheap Vinyl.
Also available for pre-order on Amazon (Prime?)
I have the feeling this will be a large pressing and we'll see prices around $12-$15 come fall.
iam8bit's picture discs are pretty, too bad they're picture discs.
I don't have many albums in my collection that truly stand out, but some I find great-looking are Boards of Canada's Geogaddi triple LP (the triple gatefold and printed inner sleeves with all these Kodac film photos and kaleidoscopic pictures, and the etched illustration at side F), and Ulver's first three albums reissues from Century Media, very high quality heavy gatefold jackets with printed lyrics and liner notes in old Danish (translated in English on insert)... I even made a thread about one of them showcasing the packaging a few months ago.
I hate to be the one to break it to you, but you will never have Get Behind Me Satan. It's my favorite one, I haven't bought any because I know I will never be able to get all (not that I would buy Icky Thump anyway, but thats a discussion for another day.) Vinyl copy of GBMS is extremly rare and goes for over $1000 sometimes.
TLDR for the advice. That record player looks pretty cool, but it won't play super well and will damage your records. It's a very thoughtful gift, but I recommend getting the Audio Technica LP60 instead. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07N3RFXRL/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_uvSwFbKCP3H5Z
Also, get some powered speakers and you'll be set: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B016P9HJIA/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_AwSwFb93Q6G9C
This will give you a nice easy setup that will sound great, won't damage your records, and won't cause you any problems.
Best of luck!
I second this, I keep a pack on hand at all times and any time I buy an album I clean it (new or used) and then slip it in. They are also used by the library of congress for preserving their records.
TIL Hooker is actually quite nice LP player stand!
Nevermind, I would end up in night club.
>98 dB, which is much greater than any analog reproduction or recording system (Analog master tapes are capable of a dynamic range equivalent to 13-14 bits),
Tape with dolby SR was capable of providing 110dB dynamic range..
Great write up btw!
They seem to have gone up a bit in price since the last time I purchased them. I want to say I paid 22 each. But I’m sure if you shopped around you could do better than the 29 each Amazon is asking.
I typically collect 78s which feature music used in Fallout, Bioshock, Mafia, LA Noire and other video games with a period setting. It helps bring the games to life.
I especially like it when video games take the time to make an in-universe record label. Bioshock 2 had promo 45s from Rapture Records with "Rise Rapture Rise" as part of the There's Something in the Sea ARG. The special editon also had an LP from Rapture Records with the score.
Wolfenstein The New Order had Neumond Recordings. In-universe, rock and roll was stamped out because of black influence so artists like The Beatles and The Beach Boys proliferated under the Nazis. The LP contains German versions of what would have been hits in English.
Starcraft II did do a picture disc for the jukebox from Joeyray's Bar.
It even came with a $20 iTunes gift card to purchase the "iTunes LP". If you don't remember that, it was supposed to be something extra that came with music downloads. This one gave a music player theme and cocktail recipes.
I did this post a while back while making the actual record bin seen in Bioshock.
looks like its available on amazon here
Has anyone else here tried this little sticky roller? I've only used it for a few weeks but it seems to get the job done. I opted for this because I didn't want a brush that could leave bristles on the record. I'm not sure how it sticks to dust without adhesive. I'm pretty sure it's magic.
Currently only $676... I hope he gets more because some of those albums tend go for nearly $100 on their own. That and it must be painful as hell to have to sell a Pollard collection, especially one so complete.
Also it's puts in perspective to see how many albums that man has made. It's nearly insane, other than a few Tobin Sprout and Doug Gillard things he's got in there, every one of those discs is a RObert Pollard project. That man. Don't stop now.
> This has been out of print for a LONG time
It got pressed last year and is available on Amazon for $25
go to desktop view and look at all the ones listed in the right column.
also, another vinyl sub: https://www.amazon.com/Yellow-Submarine-7-Picture-Disc/dp/B07CPK4SDD
It's been an awesome few months collecting vinyl. I never thought I'd be 'one of those guys who collects vinyl', but after buying RAC's album at his show, I was hooked. I bought a Thorens 165 that a local shop replaced the parts of, and it just went from there.
I view my collection as a reflection of the albums I value most in my life, as well as a way to point to something and say 'these are the albums I like best' in a world of infinite free music a la Spotify and others. It's also so nice to listen to an album start to finish in order as the artist intended. If I didn't start collecting, I doubt I'd ever have started that experience.
Thanks to everyone here for making this community so great.
Electrohome uses a Skywin turntable/tonearm assembly, identical to the one in the Crosleys. And you KNOW how we feel about Crosleys.
If I remember correctly, Manson was totally obsessed with becoming a recording artist and basically spammed everyone with his music, even though it wasn't all that great (just kind of generic).
EDIT: Also, here's some info on the relationship between Neil Young and Manson
Test record. Everyone should have one so they can test their cartridge alignment and their system. There are a few others out there.
I've seen that Brother's and Sisters album in like every dollar bin and Half Price Books I go into. It's a good album but there's no way you should ave ever thought of dropping $25 on it. The highest one has ever sold for on discogs is less than $10. https://www.discogs.com/sell/release/3020121?ev=rb
Serge Gainsbourg - Histoire de Melody Nelson on amazon.
Full Album on youtube
FYI--If you like Innerspeaker and feel inclined to pick it up, it's only $13 on amazon right now.
You may want to specify a cheap "suitcase" or "all in one" turntable. Crosley and Victrola do sell decent enough to start with component turntables similar to lower end Audio Technica turntables that are not prone to skipping. Crosley even has the $270 C10 which is a rebranded Pro-ject. However these component turntables are not going to have skipping issues so you won't get anyone with them asking for returns.
Depends on where you live. If you have a larger local store it may save you some on shipping. Online is prob cheaper but amazon is not a great place to get vinyl most of the time. Try discogs out, I see your record as low as a dollar for a VG+ gradded one. https://www.discogs.com/sell/list?sort=price%2Casc&master_id=59355&ev=mb&format=Vinyl
Discogs is also cool cause you can create a wantlist and shop only items in it.
That goose record is amazing.
The most annoying record I owned was this Tosca record:
It's an amazing album but they spread it out where sides A, B, and D were 33rpm and sides C and E are played at 45rpm. Such a pain in the ass to have to think about that when flipping the biscuit.
<em>The Philadelphia Experiment</em> (AllMusic.com link - interesting details)
I love this album. It's badass mix of jazz, soul and hip-hop. It's a document of the way music has overlapped and morphed - better or worse in some other cases - but this album is so thumpin' and swingin' at the same time. You gotta love the timbre and employment of Questlove's snare drum - it's as distinctive as anyone's voice. Christian McBride is a top tier modern bassist, and Uri Crane accentuates and ties everything together really nicely. Check it out, if you haven't heard of it.
At that price, it's most likely 4MWB. AFAIK, there aren't any other readily available represses of that album out there.
And that said, hell, at $9, it's a cheap gamble. Amazon will let you return anything, so it's not like a huge risk.
I'm still holding out for a better repress to happen, though.
Actually, the first review, which is a good one, is actually specifically not describing that particular item but this one instead: https://www.amazon.com/Maggot-Brain-180-Gram-Colored-Vinyl/dp/B00O98F7MU/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_txt?ie=UTF8
Looks like that is a better option sound-wise.
EDIT PART II:
Alas, it looks like that particular pressing isn't stellar, either: https://www.discogs.com/Funkadelic-Maggot-Brain/release/6406827
EDIT PART III:
UGH...looks like Amazon doesn't segregate reviews based on the particular pressing. That's why there's all the confusion. Man that is just dumb.
I assume you mean on Amazon.
"Four stars. Would have given it five if it hadn't literally destroyed every cassette I put in it." This is why you can't trust Amazon reviews, folks.
It looks like space might be a limited resource in your room. If you're unable to find another location for the speakers, I'd highly recommend taking a look at isolation pads. They'll do the job more than fine to keep vibrations to a minimum.
It's a very humble collection and I still got around 30-40 albums that are typical of my region and country that I haven't found on Discogs, but you can see the majority of my full collection. Have fun!
I’ve lurked on /r/vinyl for a long time and thought i would finally contribute rather than hiding away in the shadows. I’ve been collecting records for around 7 years or so and would say I’ve been buying/trading and selling pretty consistently in the past 3 years.
I think I’ve got about 800 or so logged on Discogs at the moment, with a few boxes strewn around the flat.
The album should explain most things!
Sleep is one of my favorite bands. The link is to a NYT review by David Reese that nails their eponymous album Dopesmoker. He gets it. One of the best descriptors in his review is that their sound is so heavy, so loud and so large that it sounds like an avalanche having an orgasm. <strong>tinyurl.com/ya76uyja</strong> If you have to categorize it, it's stoner doom metal. Drop out of life with a bong in hand and listen to Dopesmoker everyday.
Yeah, I think you're right. I have a copy I bought from borders books about 5 years ago and it looks just like OP's. Edit: it's a repress, here's the discog link. I have the same copy. It says 2001 on the back but that's probably the copyright date and the reason OP is confused: https://www.discogs.com/The-Shins-Oh-Inverted-World/release/400097?utm_source=mobile&utm_medium=app&utm_campaign=iOS%20App
Take my word for it and track down the BeatDelete (RIP!) funded reissue from a few years ago. You get the correct cover art and a gatefold instead of a single sleeve. The pressing sounds really good, too.
Carpenter Brut's trilogy in the splatter variant, first pressing, limited to 100, was sold out in like 30 minutes and is imho one of the best and most important electro releases of the last years since CB - along with Perturbator - really kicked off the Dark-/Synthwave movement.
I used to own this Dropdead album years ago (fast grindcore stuff). You play side A from the inside out. Pain in the ass to play on my dad's old automatic pioneer TT, as I would always put the tonearm too far in before I dropped it making the tonearm go back to the resting position. Also, when you hit the end on the side the needle just dropped off the side so you had to pay attention.
Apparently, this record is a prized piece of human history. And for 21 mil, it can be yours!
The Strokes-is this it. Fantastic album!
They came out around the same time period, fan of the hives at all? they're not like the strokes, but another good one.
Here is my collection: https://www.discogs.com/user/fgrunseich/collection
My 45 RPM copy of Fleetwood Mac - Rumours is the one I feel sounds the best.
Other contenders: Parlophone pressing of OK Computer, Analogue Productions Mono pressing of Pet Sounds, and John Mayer's Continuum.
I've often caught myself thinking, yes, the lyrics match the first gift, the patterns and tones around a time signature that form the baseline. And yet other times, I've found myself thinking, no, the lyrics don't match the first gift, that from the patterns and tones around a time signature that form the baseline. However, at least the lyrics address topics such as politics, love, pain, or sex, to name a few.
*I appreciate your passion for the material, but there is a real disconnect between how good you think your writing is, and how bad it actually is. I remember my own pretentious writing about Radiohead when I was in college, many years ago, so you're not alone. But you don't need to write a manifesto. I tried to focus on being real, rather than grand, and that helped. And I read William Zinsser's book On Writing Well. That also helped.
glad I'm not the only one seeing these. just over the last few days the started popping up in my "New Releases" box and now it's full of them. all from different countries but the writing on all of them appears to be Korean.
Not all promo copies are worth anything, especially from the 70's as many were just copies sent to radio stations. Usually $8 is too much for a goodwill copy of a widely available album; promo or not.
However, this looks to actually be an exception. Looks like it goes for around $30 usually
You received this bootleg version: https://www.discogs.com/Gorillaz-Demon-Days/release/8387275
$40 is the going price for a Demon Days bootleg so you weren't necessarily ripped off... You just didn't know what you were buying (though you should have realized it given the price) or the seller was not honest about what they had. You could return it for those reasons... but definitely return it for that crack. It's probably not from the shipping because everything else looks fine which means the seller sold you a defective product. So... (1) contact seller and explain that is a bootleg and cracked and ask for a refund, (2) if seller refuses leave bad feedback and immediately contact Ebay and paypal, if you used paypal, and include your order #, description, and pictures. There is a limited window in which they can act on your information so get to it.
the only copy with 100% of the original samples is this promo CD. i believe the original modular pressings/CDs have most of the original samples, but then after that more had to be removed again for the XL presses.
According to my tastes, about 98.37% of my collection is quality. Was "gifted" a bunch of my parents old records containing mostly 80s new wave stuff I had no interest in, so i sold everything I didn't want and bought stuff I did. Randomly bought a Chipmunks Christmas album as a joke with my girlfriend, as well as the story of Star Wars. From a quick glance, the rest is everything I listen to with regularity.
Went to a barn sale with a bunch of records that I saw advertised on craigslist. Got there and found a few hundred LPs on a big dolly cart, mostly junk. But in the last half dozen or so records I flipped through was Wendell Harrison's <em>Dreams of a Love Supreme</em> and I about shit. Incredible private press soul infused spiritual jazz from Detroit.
Children of the Mushroom - August Mademoiselle/ You Can't Erase a Mirror
My Dad played rhythm guitar on this record. He was 16, and the oldest member of the group was I think 18. They were somewhat popular in the San Fernando/Conejo Valley in Los Angles for a few years, and legend was that the single briefly charted in the Austin, Texas area. My Dad has since lost his own copy, but I have seen a few for sale here and there and they go for bonkers prices. I'm hoping one day someone will be kind enough to not charge me an arm and a leg.
Yes it is very valuable.
Currently can be purchased for $2 on discogs or for $3 if one wanted to splurge for a NM copy
Also it was literally the first result in google, then just follow along to the right one
In no particular order:
Thy Catafalque - Tuno Ido Tarlat (fuck Blood Music for releasing the band's catalog in ultra-limited runs)
Bark Psychosis - Hex (both the original and the reissue are expensive as shit)
Blut Aus Nord - MoRT
Ved Buens Ende - Written in Waters original marbled purple vinyl (I already have the reissue in white, but the original looks sexy as shit, and I'm not a fan of the artwork of the remastered edition)
Avey & Panda - Spirit They're Gone... limited DMM reissue
What to do when you have a free sunny Sunday morning, a new record crate and mild OCD? Put your records in vague colo(u)r order and make a gif of it, of course. My collection's a mix of records nearly everyone will know and slightly more obscure ones, mostly indie and rock from the UK but with a bit of punk, electro and hip-hop, along with quite a few OSTs. My favourites would probably be The Strokes - Is This It, The Stone Roses - S/T, Manic Street Preachers - The Holy Bible (Picture Disc), Wolf Alice - My Love Is Cool, Radiohead - The Bends, Oasis - Definitely Maybe and David Bowie - Hunky Dory. A couple of more obscure, highly recommended albums are Benjamin Clementine - At Least For Now and The Maccabees - Marks To Prove It. I got into vinyl about a year ago, and recently upgraded from an awful all-in-one to a Rega RP1, and you really can hear the difference. The coolest and rarest releases I have are Another One by Mac deMarco, which I got signed at an instore last year, Blackstar by David Bowie on clear vinyl , which I pre-ordered back in December and the xx- Coexist box set, which isn't in the gif due to its 7" format. As well as these 12"s, I've got about 20 singles, which adds up to about 110 in total, including records stolen from my parents and aunt. The records furthest from my comfort zone would be Max Richter - From Sleep, which I bought on impulse at Rough Trade after seeing it recommended quite a lot in the UK music press, and Introducing The Hardline According to Terence Trent d'Arby, bought in Amsterdam at a flea market on my Mum's recommendation - she was working at CBS when it was released, and did quite a bit of the promotion for it. I put on a longer version, where you can see the LPs in a bit more detail at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8FaLlo3CTw , and feel free to check out my discogs - https://www.discogs.com/user/alexhaydn/collection
Saw you said that you were using the paper sleeves before you deleted your comment---yeah, don't use paper sleeves. That's your problem right there. Not only do you get scratches, you get whatever little bits make it into the paper sleeve + album sleeve itself sticking back on the record.
Get some mofi sleeves and a simple record cleaner kit.
Every time you get a new record: pull it out of the paper sleeve, throw the paper sleeve away, and wipe the record down with the moistened velvet brush. Play the clean side, flip it, and wipe down the new side before you spin it. Put it up in the new mofi sleeve and it'll be pristine the next time you pull it out for a spin.
> Despite my best efforts though, I've only amassed "in 3D" and "Dare to Be Stupid".
I've seen Mandatory Fun in a few record stores. Here it is on Amazon for just under $20. Not sure how much help that is to you though if you plan to buy the box set [accordion set?].
Order from Amazon though. Cheaper and Prime if you got it, and SRC can be wonky (plus they show as on Backorder now).

Check out the Record Butler on Amazon: I use this when a 180 gram record is in a thick printed sleeve -- and even though my hands are large enough, I still have difficulty removing the album from the sleeve because it's so tight.
No. You’ve posted this before on other subs, you open with one of the worst turntables on the market, give it a bullshit review with no rubric/criteria, AND it includes links to Amazon.
You're in luck. Teyana is available on Amazon.
I would recommend for records that collect a lot of static. When it’s only a little bit of static it doesn’t seem to make much of a difference, but there is an improvement with ones with a lot of static.

My not-so-objective Top 10 list. A lot of nostalgia at play. I started the decade at the age of 22, so I was in the prime music discovery, college age that was highly transformative. I went to so many shows, met so many people. So some of these picks aren't 100% based on the music itself, but the friendships I made along the way, the shows and communities I was a part of, and how much I've still listened to each album.
Honorable mentions in alphabetical order: Alvvays - Alvvays, Bomb the Music Industry! - Vacation, Coping - Nope, Kidcrash - Naps, Mountains for Clouds - Maybe It's Already Everywhere, Olive Drab - The Big Sleep, Pretend - Tapestry'd Life, Royal Headache - High, Suis La Lune - Riala, Whitney - Light Upon the Lake.
Here's a Spotify playlist with my Top 3 songs per album, and my favorite song from the honorable mentions. If you're interested in checking out what some of this sounds like.
Which is fine. Nothing wrong with owning a new record.
However, if you were interested in the original, there are hundreds of NM copies for sale on Discogs many under $10: https://www.discogs.com/sell/list?sort=price%2Casc&master_id=15016&ev=mb&condition=Near+Mint+%28NM+or+M-%29&format=Vinyl
> Very common, but the two picture sleeves and "Beatles on Apple" sleeves alone are probably worth the $30
No, not really: https://www.discogs.com/Beatles-Lady-Madonna/release/3146810
I mean, if you want to say that they are worth $2 each, ok. But this guy is freaking out. He'll probably post them on craigslist for like $500
Pressing plants actually can! This is the one gold record I own. The pictures they have here don't really do it justice, looks more metallic in person. Same a few silver records I own.
Lately, loads of places have been calling translucent yellow 'gold' instead.

I'm not sure about the Hol, but it says it ships from Holland - so that's my best guess. I think Vinyl Destination just puts whatever they want in the parentheses. You can see (mostly) every version on Discogs - and even purchase a copy new or used here for likely a cheaper price.
I don't see any greasy fingerprints - not sure it's authentic. More seriously, it sells on Discogs for about five dollars if you're lucky. Signatures are tricky. You have no proof that's his signature. You could go through the hassle of getting it authenticated, but still - I think this is going to be of more interest to hardcore Colonel Sanders fans than vinyl collectors. Unless the hardcore KFC/Vinyl crew wants to chime in and prove me wrong?
Haha, well spotted. Thanks. They had not passed the quality test, so I'm on the look-out for other copies now. It's a good thing they're both quite common.
I figured I didn't want to have a Beegees or Abba book-end, and I didn't have enough copies of this one.
NSFW obviously! Faggot was a one off punk band from 2009. Their self titled album is barely listenable... interesting to note that the chick bass player that used to play live let her period blood run down her leg while they played. Cool, I guess...
This may empty your wallet immediately and ruin your life and all relationships you have or will ever have, but let me introduce you to Discogs:
It's also an invaluable tool for anyone into vinyl. You'll find a near complete cataloging of music releases, including all pressings of a specific album.
From <strong>here</strong> I used <strong>this</strong> to get the average worth of my collection (i.e. values based on last 10 sales using Marketplace Sales History). It's not perfect but better then going one by one :)
Mine are Sun Kil Moon - Benji (blue vinyl) followed by Band of Skulls - Baby Darling Doll Face Honey.
However, my unopened copy of King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard – Nonagon Infinity (Limited Emu Egg Deluxe Gatefold Edition) is slowly inching up. I just saw them live back in May and if that's your style of music, they are a wicked tight band live. I saw them the night after catching the Brian Jonestown Massacre live (both were sold out), so yeah, it was a good week.
After reading more about the influences of early Talking Heads records, particularly the one from which I borrowed user name, I discovered that David Byrne was partially influenced by this record. Chris Frantz gave it to Byrne, and his lines "Facts are simple and facts are straight, Facts are lazy and facts are late," are a direct result of this influence. So I really wanted to check it out. I had never heard it before and found a good copy on Discogs. It is an interesting listen...
Kurtis Blow was one of the first commercially successful hip hop artists. This was his first record, and it is a mixed bag of very fun, funky beats, party rapping and some odd choices.
The first half is definitely better than the second half. This is due in large part to the last two songs of the album when Blow attempts to sing an R&B soul song before finally singing "Takin' Care of Business." Yes, that song. All Music said it best:
...how many other old school rappers attempted to sing soul, let alone arena rock? -- the fact remains that rapping, not singing, is Blow's strong point.
On the other parts of the album Blow is entertaining, and the first side of this record would be a fun choice to play at a party. The music is actually very good, and it kind of reminds me a lot of early Talking Heads – simple, effective funkiness. Blow's rapping is ok, if a little silly. This was all well before any kind of obscenity really found its way into hip hop. While he does play to his audience with a few too many "Oh yeah" call and responses, and perhaps the "throw your hands in the air; wave 'em like you just don't care" is completely played out in the ears of today's listeners, he remains consistent.
Is it amazing? No. Is it fun? Yes. Definitely should be heard by anyone interested in where music has been.
[Edited for syntax, etc...]
Too many to count. I listen to a lot of bands that do super limited runs and try to snap them up as soon as I can.
My favorite is probably my my near complete collection of the Crouton Music catalogue. Most is not on vinyl (on CD) but they were insanely limited, ridiculously cool artwork and packaging and just great music overall.
I'm only missing 2 of the 41 or 42 releases. Been looking for years but just cannot find them. I'd pay a lot for them as these albums as they mean so much to me.
I also found a few 60's stag albums this week at a thrift store. Here are a couple that are VERY NSFW:
But seriously ... If the LP60 is the best you can do, then you probably aren't at a place in your life to be messing with vinyl - and you've already discovered why. Stop buying full-priced records to feed to the grinder, and start saving that money for a big-boy TT. In the meantime, perhaps check out what the local thrifts and dollar bins have to offer in the way of listening matter.
Sorry for your loss.
Did you search sold listings? I see several black label RCAs on ebay.
I believe this is the Discogs listing. The gougers on there aren't represenative of the actual value. If it's VG to VG+ you have like a $20-30 album. NM would be a bit more, maybe $50-60 especially with how "hot" his stuff is now.
Amazon is running a special on the LP120 right now. You'd get MUCH more mileage out of that deck!
Some records are in the sleeves so tight -- especially the heavier paperboard sleeves -- and, not wanting to fingerprint the vinyl, I picked up a pack of the Record Butler from Amazon. Works like a charm!

>The reason for this is the wavelength it was recorded in, a smooth, wavy line which brings the music quality to a whole new level, compared to a jagged sound wave of a CD which is very harsh. Scientists have validated this case.
