Yeah I got a copy of Imagine that really doesn't sound too good off eBay. The other one I got from the same seller was fine but I don't tend to look there for records any more.

Vinyl is better because the instruments aren't compressed like they are for a CD. MP3's are even more notorious for compression. We found an independent local electrical shop on the street we've just moved to that sells portable vinyl players. They are manufactured by a niche company and the man said that they are selling like hot cakes.

Whiskey from West Quay Records in Bridgwater said that he's finding that he has to clear space for vinyl by removing CD's. People are going back to vinyl. Poor Whiskey's shop is under threat.

I just used a clean cotton cloth on my records. I don't think I ever sprayed anything on them.

Well, just like Ol' Whiskey, the owner of the indie shop near my work now stocks more new releases on vinyl than he does on CD. I asked him about it and he says no one buys the CDs anymore.

Got dat Hello Sadness and Camp preordered, sons.

Also, Waterloo is running 20% off everything this week. Tough to resist, but I'm trying to keep myself from heading down there, buying a ton of shit, and chit chatting with Ol' Whiskey's colleagues.

I was unable to ignore the lure of 20% off. Ol' Whiskey just sold me my Stridulum and Saturdays=Youth shits for a cool $26.

Made it back to Austin just in time to get 20% off at Waterloo. Managed to snap up that RSD Wilco 10", the Deerhoof/Raccoonists 7", and the LA Vampires Meets Zola Jesus EP. The Dylan and Beatles singles boxes for RSD looked really cool, but I couldn't justify the expense considering I've got Christmas shopping to do.

Anyone get any of the RSD goodies today?

Scored Mysterious Ways and EBTTRT 12"s for $10 each to go with my Fly 12". Just Wild Horses to go and I win.

What do you people think of a $60 price tag for a vintage Achtung Baby LP?
