The Mondo Records Thread - You think limited? Will sell fast?

Recommended Posts

I'm fairly new to the mondo game. Is it normal to have every record shipped to me arrive with a seam split?

I'm from Belgium and only my Guardians LP had a seam split.

No idea how many orders I have received from Mondo but I think around 30.

Also a user on spin the blackest circle noticed there are 2 shipping options now for international costumers :

First Class Parcel International

International Vinyl Shipping.

The last one is a little bit more expensive. I wonder what the difference is.

re:seam splits.

just wondering,

Why are they always on top center only?

If the postal shipping is that bad all 4 edges would have splits.

I think this damage was done from shipping from their pressing plant to Mondo,

& Mondo ships it to us with the split.

Because the top is usually the way the opening on the inner sleeve is. The other three sides are protected by the three closed sides of the inner sleeve.

Most of the time, that is. My "A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night" inners had breaches on all three closed sides on each.

Also, I know people came saying that "A Girl Walls Home Alone at Night" isn't a Mondo release, but the back cover and several of the labels feature a Mondo logo. Was probably already in production as a DW release. This is easily the thinnest record that even DW has put out. Considering that most of DW's releases in the last two years were at least twice as thick as these, it is still a surprise when comparing AGWHAAN to other DW releases.
