  1. I've got OG and 2012 pressings of most, but that (red) remastered Hard to Find a Friend is still tempting.

    PO Now: Ovlov - TRU

    New single out today, a little more refined but still with that sweet dirty guitar wash and I'm into it. https://ovlov.bandcamp.com/track/spright

    PO: TTNG - Self-Titled Repress

    Oh hell yes, ordered real quick! $40 was a tough pill to swallow though for 8 songs, but who knows when we'll see this again.
  6. Same, so ready for this album.

    Dual 1237 Scratchy Sound

    It sounds like distortion due to a misaligned cartridge to me - perhaps try getting out the protractor and aligning it once more (be sure to get it as exact as possible). If you don't have experience doing this you may want to ask for some help at a local shop; misaligned cartridges can do serious damage to records and the cartridge itself. If that doesn't do the trick you can check to make sure the tonearm wiring is securely attached to the cartridge.
  10. Title says it. I've got a NM copy of Penfold's Amateurs And Professionals on milky clear (/150) that I've only played twice so it deserves a better home. Looking for any pressing of Thursday - War All The Time as long as it's in good condition.
  11. Sunday bump, updated with prices
