  1. Thanks for the heads up! I always seem to just miss these $62 got me: Willie - God's Problem Child PE - It Takes a Nation... VU - Loaded King Gizzard - Nonagon Infinity Nirvana - Unplugged
  2. I've been using this brand for years Available in regular or snug fit and 4 mil Bags Unlimited has a bunch of variations. Recently ordered from ebay - 100ct $20 shipped
  3. How exactly is that determined? Label says: Manufactured by Concord Music Group Matrix: RZR 00072 There is also a "CM" etched in the runout I assume that stands for Concord Music
  4. A big boo/hiss for Razor & Tie I got the The Sword's Low Country RSD release that had obvious pressing issues, Tons of surface noise and distortion. A number of complaints about the same issue on Discogs. My(and others, apparently) many phone calls, emails, and facebook messages all went unanswered. I eventually asked Bull Moose(place of purchase) if they knew how to get in touch with them. They offered an exchange with reimbursement for shipping even though I'm sure a lot of places would not be as accommodating. I returned it and said that they didn't need to cover return shipping, they refunded it anyway. Luckily, the new copy sounds great. I feel badly for the poor bastards out there that got stuck with a defective copy. Big ups to Bull Moose!
  5. My copy of TP arrived with a gash on side B. I've never received a new(and expensive) record in such condition. After I provided the photo above, I had to return at my expense. Was told I needed to wait 2 or 3 months for a new pressing. Replacement copy didn't have a scratch but was still very disappointing. Style over substance. Same audio quality issue with FWWM, as mentioned. My Mondo experiences were pretty awful but damn do I want The Devil's Candy. Rant over. Is there a way to know if certain Mondo releases will be available from other retailers in the future?
  6. I've only had one issue with Deep Discount out of a dozen or so orders. The order was not marked as shipped a few days after order placed, receipt received, card charged. Called them and was told the order/invoice number did not exist in their system. The person I spoke with didn't really seem to care, so I asked to speak with someone else. Apparently, they had some issues with their system and they apologized. Received an apology email and it all worked out in the end with no real delay. Not sure what would have happened if I hadn't called though. A tip for Deep Discount and other places: Sometimes, if you leave items in your cart for whatever amount of time, they will send you a code encouraging you to complete the sale Just used a $5 off $25 order yesterday at DD
  7. I get the impression that Amazon's shipping of vinyl is subject to the person packing it. I've gotten records from the same warehouse, days apart, that were packaged completely differently. Always a crapshoot but their returns are painless(they usually just tell me to keep the damaged LP), so I really don't mind taking a shot. But I usually can find the record cheaper, securely packaged elsewhere these days...except when you guys post great buys here, of course. Thanks
  8. Looks like the reissues are pushed yet again. Bull Moose no longer has them up on their site and my preorder links back to their homepage. I called them and was told that they have no projected date as of now...not that I would hold my breath if there were. Not surprising but still a bummer So close...
  9. Did anyone else get a copy of the The Sword's Low Country that sounds terrible? Four of the five reviews (including mine ) on Discogs describe the same surface noise issue.
