    New Vinyl at Oldies.com

    They undercut their retailers - which sucks - but they also are the kings of sending damaged records. Order enough and you'll see what I mean.

    SS: Wavves - Life Sux (green /420) - $30 shipped

    I've emailed this guy twice about a problem with no response.

    WTTF - Scott Pilgrim Soundtrack

    A good portion of the first run was warped so be careful.

    record store bullshit.

    It's pure BS if a record store won't accept a return for warped vinyl (or any other manufacturer defect). All of my distributors accept returns and I've never turned a customer away because of something like this.

    Ramones remasters on vinyl

    yeah, and they were all like 10 bucks which i thought was awesome. All of those $10 pressings are taken from CD and they sound terrible.

    Pro-ject Debut III vs Rega RP1

    I'm of the opinion that your better off buying a vintage Thorens or similar. Go to Audiokarma or the Steve Hoffman forum and do some research before you pull the trigger.

    Record Store Day Blues

    If you think that pledge is going to make a difference then you're sadly mistaken. I can assure you there will be RSD titles available at ridiculous prices before and after the special day. Do what I do and wait 3 months and buy them. I've picked up everything I've wanted at retail or less. Remember people have short attention spans.

    PO: The Strokes - Angles

    The UK pressing of Angles is being offered on clear vinyl. I'll have it available for $32 (expensive I know) if anyone wants one.
  9. Take the time to research them and even if they don't turn out to be much you will have learned a lot about the value and grading of records. It might come in hand someday when you stumble on a garage sale with Lightnin' Hopkins 1st record for a buck and turn around and sell it for $1200.

    How To Pack A Record

    eBay feedback

    The seller only took responsibility after I placed a claim with Paypal . Someone should post a sticky with proper packing instructions. And don't get me started on how many times I've purchased records here that arrive damaged. It's pretty ridiculous really.

    eBay feedback

    The contents of that box were totally destroyed. There was over $250 worth of vinyl that was tossed in a flimsy box with no protection whatsoever.

    I've seen far worse packing jobs from a good chunk of sellers on this forum!

    I bought a bunch of wax from Andrew and he's a great guy to deal with.

    Tool Aenima Question

    Boots have a really flimsy sleeve and some come with one insert other two. Also, most of the boots are on colored vinyl. Are you able to actually look at the records before purchasing? If not, then I wouldn't buy it.
  18. NM copies of the original regularly sell for $30 so I don't think it's out of the question to pay $55 for a new copy that has been remastered and pressed on 180 gram vinyl. I've been selling records for just over 20 years and the only vinyl bubble that's going to burst is the one that's holding 25 different colors of the first Blink 182 LP. I sold over 50 copies of the first re-issue of All Things Must Pass in 2001 (well before the current vinyl upswing). Record buyers/collectors will always be around and it's really great to see young people buying them again no matter what the reason.
