  1. I think their discography starts great, gets better, becomes amazing, peaking with Plans and slowly stars going downhill thereafter. Plans is amazing, right? I really like most of Narrow Stairs. But Codes and Keys is like a 2 out of 5 stars. Then Kintsugi isn't anything I vibe with.
  2. Man, I'm so late to the party. I think I want to hear it before I commit to buying.

    SOUL, FUNK, and BLUES Record Thread

    I have a CD double set, which is good but not quite complete. This is every Johnson recording. The CD handled it right, though. The CD set I have arranges the songs in takes or alternate takes. So disc one is all version one and the second disc is the second versions of the songs that probably all didn't make shellac.

    More stories from record buying: Got this from my favorite local shop, Domino Sound. He must have bought a lot with a few of them in there because he was selling it pretty reasonably. 3xLP of Robert Johnson's complete recordings (never been reissued as this set) for $25. Looks NM too. https://www.discogs.com/Robert-Johnson-The-Complete-Recordings/release/804433

    PO: Dashboard Confessional Reissues

    I had an original A Mark, A Mission.... and traded it away so maybe first pressings will come down in price now. Or maybe this eventually gets to super duper clearance and get it for cheap. Back to TGUK talk, Something is still my favorite. I loved OAW back then and even more now. Guilt Show has some great songs on it too. 4MM was an album I heard after a few had been out so I never really connected with it.

    THE OFFICIAL EBAY CRAZINESS THREAD

    Ha, I got an email notification about something that I've wanted for a while (A Mark, Mission...) and saw the pics in the email. Closed it until I could get home from work to look. Can't believe nobody has thought about it with records. I'm sure it's been done before on ebay.

    Pedro The Lion entire Catalogue Repress

    By themselves, it's a tough call to which I enjoy more: IHTFAF, Winners or Control. They're perfect in their own way. Achilles Heel is so good, but doesn't move me like the others. That said, I think Curse Your Branches is my favorite Bazan-related material of all time.
  11. I would have loved this in 2002.

    Pedro The Lion entire Catalogue Repress

    I sold a Coke bottle clear in 2010 that skipped for $40, lol. I also paid $45 for the dark green pressing in 2012-13-ish. So it's all in the same in the end.

    This reminds me, I need a few PTL records to complete my discography of the first pressings: Bazan/Foubert Split 7" "Helicopter" (red) 7" "I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day" (green) 7" "It's Hard To Find A Friend" White LP And these more recent things that slipped past me: David Bazan ‎– Taster b/w Read My Mind (came out in 2015 on Polyvinyl) David Bazan ‎– Sparkling Water (Joyful Noise).

    I feel like I know less about punk than I thought simply because I've only heard of a couple of those bands.

    Rare Vinyl in Poor Condition

    Hey if you want to buy a better copy of this one, I got one https://www.discogs.com/sell/release/2756867?ev=rb

    Rare Vinyl in Poor Condition

    I will pay $5-10 for a really rare record that's in terrible shape. Other than that, no.

    MxPx - Full Length #10 (Kickstarter)

    I'm hoping that will happen. I figured there's no way they don't see how easily they could sell another 500-1,000 copies and press them while doing this.

    MxPx - Full Length #10 (Kickstarter)

    Ha, didn't see this thread for until now. I love MXPX. At 16, at a church youth thing-y, I bought Teenage Politics. It was my first experience with anything punk. They were like Fisher Price: my first punk band.They lead me to discover other punk and hardcore bands, the legitimately great bands that impacted most of us here probably. But then, the ethos of punk helped shape my life. To like what I like, to not worry about what other people think is good for me, etc. MXPX were my outlet for that. I've bought pretty much everything they've ever put out. No other band has been with me as long as them. So, I'm so happy they did this. Mike has never stopped touring the band name, even thought Yuri and Tom needed to get full time jobs. But they've been doing weekend tours for a couple years and doing well. I'm glad there's still a demand for their music. That said, I was going to pledge for a black copy of the new album, but shipping was $10. So $35 for a new record didn't feel like the most important thing. Perhaps I'll end up trading someone for a copy in the future. Happy for them.

    Bought this to resell, but god, it's so hypnotic: https://www.discogs.com/Barbara-Mills-Lets-Make-A-Memory-Try/release/4676421
  25. There isn't much recognition for jazz these days on VC or even in popular culture for that matter. Probably because jazz saw a creative and popularity shift downward in the 1980's. But some of the best music that ever existed was played in the genre of jazz. Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington made jazz acceptable for the masses, while the likes of Miles Davis and John Coltrane took it to unforeseen heights. Jazz has as many sub-genres as rock and roll, and without jazz, well, we wouldn't get to enjoy a lot of the music we love today if those blue notes had not been played. Post your recent finds, discoveries, dislikes, and interests, etc. ... Anyone wanting to check out some of the great jazz albums, many of the classics have been reissued recently. They're relatively cheap. Sound Stage Direct seems to have a significant number of both the popular and obscure titles: http://www.soundstagedirect.com/jazz-vinyl-records.shtml
