I've never seen vinyl at target. But I don't remember when the last time I went to a target was.

Yeah, the news about the JT vinyl sent me to Target. They only had the other JT - Timberlake - on vinyl. Would love to have U2's.

I couldn't begin to tell you, Jeevey, about equipment, but I got a new Audio Technica turntable for Christmas last year, and it's taken me this long to compliment it. It will take some expertise to link vintage equipment to newer equipment, so don't assume you can mix and match. I've found out that the electronics are frequently incompatible. I'm very fortunate to have that expertise locally in the form of a guy who's been refurbing and building speakers, amps, etc., for a couple decades and currently sells both contemporary and vintage equipment. He speaks in language I don't understand but suspects I'll be wanting to update my contemporary turntable to a better model before I update everything else.

Yeah, I think I'd be looking for a fairly complete set. I don't know how it is in other cities but craigslist seems fairly full of them here. When your stereo whisperer says better does he mean better contemporary or to look for a vintage one?

Good question. I'm pretty sure he mostly pushes contemporary turntables. Even if he were selling many vintage ones, he says the cartridges only last a few years and must be replaced. My impression from him has been that the cartridges are most responsible for sound quality.

Anyone else got this? Bought it at JB yesterday for $28. I thought the violet was limited, so I was stoked when I opened it. Beautiful

If it is limited, there are plenty to go around. Picked that up the day it came out for $15. Beautiful vinyl though.

Found the violet version when I went to buy Trouble Will Find Me.

Need to get Sad Songs at some point, still haven't heard the debut.

Are they releasing any physical singles from the new album? High Violet's b sides were all great.

I don't think they ever released a number for the size of the run. The US version seems to be a bit more sought after. Judging by how obviously purple Cobblepot's is, he must have snagged the UK/EU pressing. The US pressing is a deep, deep somewhat translucent purple.

SSFDL is the only record of theirs which I don't have the colored variant. Kind of a thorn in my balls.

Nothing announced, which totally sucks considering the quality of their outtakes. "Sin Eaters" wasn't very good, but the rest of the HV leftovers were hot stuff. Terrible Love Alt/You Were a Kindness is a must own single, as was Think You Can Wait/Exile Vilify. Wish we could've got like a Conversation 16/Wake Up Your Saints single.

Ooh, translucent would have been cool. Which one have you got?

What are people's top five National b-sides/tracks from EPs/extraneous tracks?

The pictures of ours I have on Photobucket are almost blue. I'm too lazy to go snap a new pic.

As a frame of reference for the color, see the photo of LM outside Good Recs or these here:

Laying flat with no light behind it, it's hard to tell it's even purple. UK/EU is quite blatantly purple as heck.

Yeah, mine (also a US pressing) is also a deep blue. I love it, though, even more than the yellow Boxer and green Alligator.

My mother is asking me to help her dispose of a large collection that she inherited from her ex. Does anyone know the best way to go about it?
