  1. I'll look into it then. Thanks
  2. How long does it typically take to get your $10 credit? I signed up through a referral link last Friday(9/15)
  3. Some Cheap Vinyl at Amazon

    Moral of the story: Don't be an idiot like me and cancel, thinking it won't come back in stock. I cancelled the Louis/ Etta boxset for $10 just a few days before it was back in stock. Kicking myself over that one.
  4. The Vinyl Deals Thread (non-Amazon)

    Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story Soundtrack - SRC $10 I was hesitant to order from SRC based on the reviews in the distro thread Got both the red and clear for $25 shipped Arrived in 3 business days It initially says backordered when the page loads but it goes away after a few seconds
  5. The Vinyl Deals Thread (non-Amazon)

  6. Protective Outer Sleeves?

    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
  7. Got mine in the mail today. (The deluxe, white version pictured above) Didn't have any distortion issues.
  8. 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
  9. 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!
  10. 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?
  11. The Vinyl Deals Thread (non-Amazon)

    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
  12. Some Cheap Vinyl at Amazon

    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
