At least it wasn't a cassette that you were paying that price for.

BTW, how many pieces do you have, David? I have about 180-190 now and they take up roughly more than three full expedit shelves. Considering you have sixteen shelves....

I bought this reissue new today....it was like the old vinyl that I wanted so bad (although it became slightly less valuable in my opinion after the Spector albums boxed set on CD recently)....usually goes for about $50 on eBay.

It was only $16.99 at my local Rasputin (I still rarely go above $10 for any single disc vinyls though. Anything above $12 feels like murder to me), so there's great savings often at your local record stores. But yeah, great album and the reissue is on high quality vinyl and sounds fine.
I have 900+ lps. I've been collecting since mid 2003. My turntable is a Pro-ject Debut iii turntable. I've upgraded the cartridge on it to an Ortofon 2M red cartridge and also replaced the stock steel platter with an acrylic platter.

I'm going to make a spreadsheet catalog of all my vinyl. Because I'm nerdy and have nothing better to do tonight.

That's a very cool collection by my book. Thanks for letting us have a look, I'm jealous of some of the ones that you have.

For the vinyl and book lovers out there, the great Michael Chabon is releasing his new book - Telegraph Avenue - today. This is the story of two characters who own a record store in Berkeley. Should be very good - Chabon is certainly one of my favorite contemporary novelists.

Flying Lotus record came out two weeks early



Picked up the last collector's edition. Cost me $40 including a 10% discount, so I hope it's good. I have total faith though.

Hardback gatefold 180g (not that I can tell the difference) with a download and two gorgeous disc holders.

180g is thick and heavy. The old records you find at garage sales and shit feel like a sheet of paper if you hold them in one hand and compare it with a 180g in the other. The heavier the record, the less likely it is to warp over time.

Oh I know that, I was talking about a difference in sound quality though, if there is one.

I've got a blue 10" promotional radio station copy of live's "selling the drama" single with...um...I can't remember as a b side. Live version of tbd or shit towne or something on it. The college station even scribbled in marker on the back their acronym, so it totally looks like I stole it but in reality I paid 2 bucks from a used record store for the thing.
