  1. I use AAA renter's insurance and I'm covered up to $25k in a fire or whatever if I want more than that I can pay for additional coverage but even if discogs says the median is more than double that I doubt I'd get more liquadating unless I sold every last record online and even then fees are going to eat up a portion and would take years
  2. Yes! Used to own a couple 7" and sold them to someone on this board when I was hard up. Looking forward to this one
  3. I would seek out the 2014 pressings cut by Kevin Gray, it was right before Epitaph bought out Jade Tree. Epitaph did not reuse these cuts unfortunately for the black and clear reissues, and while far from audiophile recordings these are the best the first 3 albums ever sounded to my ears.
  4. Scott Hull does great work you should be pleased, can't comment on the other 2 plants but gotta groove presses good records. There is some misinformation given to you GZ can cut from lacquer but I would not recommend cutting a lacquerer locally and shipping it to Europe you generally want the lacquer put to metal plating as quickly as possible
  5. Sigh was hoping for a Sagarmatha reissue it's the only LP missing from my collection
  6. Crossing my fingers for the lottery, thanks for the heads up was in my promotions tab of gmail. I might have missed my chance. I would really love to get one, they are my favorite band and I have a pretty sizable collection but will probably spend the rest of my life trying to get even 1 of each release
  7. Wow the JD test was "only" $800 last night was actually trying to find a copy for less than $100 last night and stumbled upon that while spinning Axe To Fall, I thought it was crazy the Blue 1st pressing was spinning was up to $70+ that I bought at half priced books a couple years ago for $8.99. Surely we are due up for a redux or anniversary repress soon enough. Can't believe it hasn't seen a pressing in over 5 years
  8. That's disappointing to hear but what I expected. I'll buy something else and just pick up the CD for a buck. Thanks
  9. Anyone pick up the Group Sounds reissue? I'm interested but have been pretty underwhelmed with the sound on both Anniversary reissues and The Senses Fail from RSD last year,
  10. Got Laura Nyro, Rick Astley, Bardo Pond and then grabbed an Art Pepper at closing for the sweet deep employee discount. Also got the Tennis System in the mail from the GF Record Club. It was crazy working this year, the Taylor was a fiasco so we did a raffle and are giving our 14 copies away for free. Only felt sorry for one poor girl who stood in line for hours and was told the wrong info and to just get there early, so I may have folded her entry in a certain way to ensure it was pulled.
  11. They will likely settle around $150-$200 (pure speculation) but with a nostalgia release of this magnitude it's liklely 90%+ of orders are to people who have been wanting this for years and would not want to sell after lusting after originals for so long. I finally got a chance and the whole set sounds wonderful (for what it is) and the packaging is otherworldy. One of my favorite records purchases in a long time, 13 year old me would hi five me so hard right now. I hope everyone is enjoying their sets just as much and I hope the unlucky few are able to find one for a reasonable price, I wouldn't even be mad if they did another run.
  12. I saw someone post order #15500ish so probably closer to 16k sets. I knew resale prices would be at least double but looks like closer to 5 to 6 times that now, it could tame down and I hope it does for those who missed out since so many were listed before many of us even received them. Just got mine today, washed all 7 and going to break into the set after they dry. I am blown away with the packaging and everything looks perfect minus a couple light scuffs on the GI disc but I doubt it will even sound. I'll never throw down for originals so short of getting lucky at a garage sale/estate sale this is the closest I'll ever get to owning these in their original format. Been wanting these all since I started collecting and the Slinkees bonus single is icing on the cake
  13. I only had a tracking number since the 13th and then it changed to out for delivery today, so hope it arrives safe and sound soon!
  14. I Think I got Monster Movie - Transistor (which I don't own and love Slowdive/Beachy Head). The number written on the sleeve is the catalog number right? edit: Nevermind It was indeed the title in question, and was in the runouts if I had bothered to think of that.
  15. Will do, I'm hoping for Appleseed Cast, Night School/Fawning etc, Dott or Whirr in which case I'll definitely keep but I'll be in contact.
  16. I'll keep you posted if I get the Toman I grabbed the last mystery test pressing off bandcamp. I have yet to get one with any record club shipment but im only towards the end of my 2nd sub so far and have been very happy with my experience thus far.
  17. I would go for PSB Alpha 5s they are well designed and sound great at around $450 https://www.psbspeakers.com/product/alpha-p5-bookshelf-speaker/
  18. Tired Of Tomorrow still sounds like hot garbage, can't put lipstick on a pig in this case, holy crap is that compressed. I still love this album though, great songs!
  19. Mine showed up yesterday, got a chance to spin just now and it sounds great, real punchy low end and a big sound stage, I love the Delfonics cover. I know 33 vs 45 but I followed up Great Dismal with the B-Sides tonight and the sound was much better to my ears. I still need to go back and review their back catalog with the new Clear Audio turntable.
  20. I've never surprised by plant delays anymore. With digital albums coming out next month and LPs in March and May you know it's bad. I kind of expected this to take longer, I think with the value per dollar I can wait, I have a feeling this will be done right and a worthy addition.
  21. I got Version 2 it could be worse for colors, but agreed not very impressive. Allocations were heavy didn't even receive the other 2 colors for my store despite ordering all 3
  22. Red vinyl is going to be a blood bath at release. It's limited to 3500 copies (it's Radiohead why not 10k?) and it's exclusive to a single distro. I already cut off preorders for my store and I ordered 100 and have maybe 1/5 of that in preorders already and worried about filling those
  23. I was having my morning coffee when this dropped and got an email from bandcam, I rushed through checkout for the /750 without even thinking to check relapse, oh well that's on me could have gotten a rarer variant in hindsight for about the same price as they were charging an extra $3 on bandcamp. At least it matches the cover art the best, and the band probably got a little more money
  24. The basis for everything I know about records is because of Shawn I worked for Independent for 4 years and he really took me under his wing and taught me the ropes of record collecting and buying for a retail operation and I still consider him one of my closest friends even though we are miles apart now so I love this shoutout. I now manage product for a successful midwest record store/audio equipment dealer. I am in charge of ordering/all used buys and all processing and pricing of used records and I would never be here without him. Smash those preorders for www.beindependent.com they could really use the support right now. If for some reason they don't have them up I got you covered https://vinylren.com/search-results-page?q=boris
  25. the tri-fold insert is in the band variant as well. What is causing a stir is the fold over numbered cover many of us were under the impression we would receive with the /100 bandcamp exclusive. Ultimately all 3 colors look great, the packaging is incredible and it's the best it's ever sounded, so I'm just mad about some phantom made up situation where a neckbeard off the internet tries to challenge me about assembling a band variant in order to sell it for more when in reality I'm probably going to die with this record and it will be my heir's issue to deal with.
