Can anyone link something cheap ($20-30)I can buy from Wal-mart that will hold my new collection of 12 inch lps? I have maybe 6 right now (the number is growing day by day), but I intend on keeping them in the best quality possible.

For a collection that size, just buy a plastic milk crate for $4 and save up for an Expedit from Ikea ($69 and up). Wal-Mart's "furniture" is lovely lovely lovely, and while Ikea is still wood/glue composite and laminate stuff that won't stand the test of time, it's what everyone has and swears by and is affordable enough to not feel bad about banging the hell out of during a move.

There's a pretty big difference between paying a few bucks to hang up an old Sgt.

Plus there's something that just bothers me about people who hoard records with the explicit intention of never playing them.

There's nothing wrong with buying music, especially in this day and age, but I'd be lying if I didn't say I have a very special hatred for the folks who prefer to look at their records instead of listen to them. If you've ever had to re-send orders because the original record arrived in "unacceptable condition," (read: immaculate record; >1 inch fold in the corner of the original's jacket) you'd understand.

I get the desire to have those albums that you really care about in vinyl, even if you can't actually play it. My roommate my first semester of college had all of the main-line Beatles albums on vinyl up on his wall, no player in sight, it was still pretty cool, because he had Rubber Soul and Sgt. Peppers on vinyl.

That said, it's a billion times better to listen to them than to look at them. I wouldn't own the stuff I do if I didn't have the player.

The only time I've had a record resent due to "unnacceptable condition" (apart from a couple of random warped ones) was the new St. Vincent album. Not only was it warped, it had a two inch crack in the vinyl. If a record has a slightly bent corner, or a minor seam split, I don't give a poo poo.

If you listed the fold you wouldn't have the problem. Immaculate (mint) means immaculate, not "one inch fold in cover." I have a very special hatred for people who don't describe any problems. The Infest/Pissed Happy Children split flexy I bought a long time ago had a loving CREASE in it that they neglected to mention. A crease in the RECORD. Problems include anything that would make it a smidge less than factory perfect.

There's an amazing record shop in Evanston, IL that I love going to because not only do they have bins full of records I've never seen in the flesh before, but they only buy seriously immaculate stock. IMMACULATE. I feel guilty even going through all the crates, like I'm diminishing the condition even looking at it. I hate to buy anything there because there's two premiums- one for being obviously obscure hard to find releases, the other for being pristine M/NM although they don't even claim they're mint.

I have a copy of Hawkwind's "In Search of Space" that's display only because I bought it for 2$ due to it being totally hosed. The record looks like someone hosed it with a knife and then poured candles all over it. The die cut foldout though is in pretty remarkable condition. I have a play copy of it too, complete in much nicer condition.

I definitely dispute anything I'm paying money for that's misrepresented. I don't mind owning slightly beat VG stuff as long as play isn't interrupted or distracting noise, provided I know the condition before buying. I check used vinyl at the stores I buy from because they encourage it, it discourages people flipping out when they get home and think a VG+ is actually a G.

Minor damages to the packaging are going to happen more often than not during the course of shipping, no matter how hard we prepare for it in the packing phase, and it's pretty foolish to expect every album sent via mail to be absolutely factory perfect after it makes the long journey to your door. I've had plenty of experiences with Gs listed as VG+s on eBay and Discogs, and that poo poo really sucks. We've also sent out several records that were flawed in the printing process, (Richard Hell - Destiny Street was hella warped and A Place To Bury Strangers - Exploding Head came with locked grooves all over the place) and once we figured out what went on we immediately refunded or remailed everyone's order, because hosed-up records that should be mint are an enormous disappointment. But although the packaging might be inconsequentially flawed, the record itself is often flawless. And if you care that much about preserving the immaculateness of the record jacket or inner sleeve, go buy your records at a brick and mortar to avoid the inevitable tossing and turning that's due to happen if you get it shipped.

There is no reason to expect record sleeves (or records) to suffer any sort of damage during shipping if they are properly packed (barring severe mishandling which would be evident on the outside of the packaging). There are sellers who can be bothered to do this and there are sellers who can't.

I got Beck's "The Information" Deluxe from Artist in Residence, and I was quite surprised that considering how long it's been out, mine is 0175/1000. Editioned releases like this usually give lower numbers first, right? The price did go from $275, then $175, and now currently $95 (+30 shipping). Are not many people buying it? It's now in the Beck store for more than twice the price on Artist in Residence.

Really nice set. About the width of about 15 regular LP sleeves... Only problem is the part on the front that you wrap the string around; I don't want that messing up my Sea Change.

Are the 12-inches pressed at 33 or 45? Please let me know if it's 45!!

I just got my War on Drugs record and it's great, but the records are 12" but pressed at 45 rpm. This might be an elementary question, but what's the advantage of that? From what I know, 180-gram works for the detail due to deeper grooves with more info in them, but what's the benefit for a faster RPM?

180g records don't have deeper grooves. Same stampers as 120g/etc, same mother process, just different biscuits.

e: Sorry, to answer your actual question: pressing @45 on 12" allows for a wider dynamic range and a higher volume. Effectively better reproduction, depending on the mastering.

I know what you did last summer, and frankly I am displeased.

I know we've got a few Third Man Vault members here. Did anyone get the new package yet? My Raconteurs live disc sounds kind of craptacular. The first few tracks have a distracting static sound and the rest of it isn't so hot either. Overall the disc sounds a bit compressed and there's occasional high end distortion. It's a shame because I really enjoyed the renditions of the songs they did. Have any of you experienced this? And if by chance I got a bad pressing have any of you ever got replacements on defective Vault records? Supposedly they don't make any more than are ordered each quarter.

Unfortunately, all of them are at 33. Surprising since it's only about an hour long, over the four sides.

One thing they didn't skimp on were the dust sleeves/liners. Those things are made out of some kind of white plastic/vinyl material, with a felt material lining the inside. Makes them a little difficult to take out of the liner (especially the 10")

For RSD Black Friday, when I drove up to what seems to be my state's only good record store, I found that the owner had decided to stick a bunch of surplus/unwanted stock (i.e., vinyl, cassettes, CDs, and promo posters) outside, free to visiting customers. I came away with a bunch of 45s by Bill Black's Combo, The Platters, and Johnny & The Hurricanes, as well as the box set I'd called and requested for RSD, which he'd been kind enough to keep behind the counter until I showed up. After some of the RSD horror stories in this thread, I'm impressed.
Some of my happy pick-ups in the past three months...

12"s:
16-17 - Human Distortion
Afrika Bambaataa - Death Mix
G.L.O.B.E. & Whiz Kid - Play That Beat Mr. D.J.
Invisibl Skratch Piklz - Invisibl Skratch Piklz Vs. Da Klamz Uv Deth - Furious Ostrich Tracks
Momus - "Nicky"
Momus - The Hairstyle Of The Devil
Stunt Rock - Really Political, Well Produced Super Emotional Maximum Terror Breaks L.P.

7"s:
CoH - Yellow (feat. Little Annie)
Halo Of Flies - Big Mod Hate Trip
Herman Kelly & Life - Dance To The Drummer Beat
Jane's Addiction - Whole Lotta Love / Slow Diver
Tina Turner - We Don't Need Another Hero (Thunderdome)
The Tremeloes - Silence Is Golden

LPs:
Carnivore - s/t (2LP reissue)
Carnivore - Nuclear Warriors - The Early Years (marbled grey vinyl)
DJ Food & DK - Solid Steel Presents
Elmer Bernstein - The Music From Marlboro Country
Grandmaster Melle Mel & The Furious Five - s/t
Jay Chattaway - Maniac OST (x/500)
Madlib - Madlib Medicine Show No. 5 - History Of The Loop Digga, 1990-2000
Marilyn Manson - Antichrist Superstar (2LP picture disc)
My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult - Sexplosion!
The Stalin - Stop Jap (unofficial repress, but it's nice just to have a copy)
Sun Ra And His Astro Infinity Arkestra - My Brother The Wind, Vol. II
Sun Ra And His Myth Science Arkestra - Cosmic Tones For Mental Therapy
Throbbing Gristle - 20 Jazz Funk Greats (remastered reissue, x/1000)
Trouble Funk - Straight Up Funk Go Go Style
Type O Negative - None More Negative (Roadrunner Records discography box set, 2 copies, one of which was a surprising, awesome present)

And bad record shipping can't get much worse than an LP shipped from Brazil... in brown paper wrapping, with no cardboard inserts or bubble wrap.

So I've got a record player that's on it's way out and I've got no way of repairing it and need an upgrade anyway. Even after reading Amazon's reviews I figured you guys would be the one's to ask this question, I've been looking at the Audio Technica AT-LP60 and the Audio Technica ATLP120 and while I'm sure the second is probably better is it worth the price difference?

The LP60 has an unswappable cartridge and factory-set anti skate/tracking pressure, so if yours comes with one of those values set improperly (like mine did) or you want to upgrade, you're poo poo out of luck. The LP120 is probably your best bet in that price range, but shop around a bit first. I manged to pick up a Technics SL-1800, which is the same as the SL-1200 with the controls in different places, for 150 including shipping. Ebay can be a great source of bargains sometimes.

Yeah but I've got a couple of Amazon gift cards that are helping the upgrade happen, so I'm pretty much limited to their selection. I should also look into nicer speakers too but one thing at a time. The LP120 sounds like the way to go though here for sure.

I'm kind of interested in both, but more torn on the Halo Soundtrack. I know the music was great, but I've never thought that it was something incredible. Maybe the fact that I thought moments in Halo CE were awesome is a testament to the soundtracks power cause I don't really remember too many songs from it.

Definitely go for the 120 if you're choosing between the two, but don't be afraid to look at other options. I've got a Gli-Pro SL2100 that works great and is in the same general price range, and I can't recommend it enough.

I have both models. When I got the AT-LP60, the table wasn't calibrated and rotated slightly faster than normal. I fixed it just fine, but the features in it aren't very great if you're looking to really get a ton of use out of your turntable and have a degree of flexibility with it. My AT-LP120 essentially mirrors technics and is my default player. Easily worth the extra money.

I forget you're the guy always advertising insound but I figured you were an ebay seller or the like from the description of the problem. Selling new product with creases is pretty low. I mean, yeah, I've had all sorts of damage in shipping, but it is always the fault of the packaging job. Unfortunately its usually always friends sending me an album they did as a surprise gift and therefore they don't care about shipping it right and there is a huge fold in a corner. I haven't ordered from insound but I imagine you use new mailers and packaging supplies, so why a crease, and more importantly why would you complain about a customer who doesn't like receiving damaged goods.

The crease is inconsequential and doesn't hurt playback but its like buying a new car with some paint blemishes. That sucks.

'And lo, the arguing ceased, for Electric Bugaloo had descended from the mountain to share in his most recent acquisitions. And the angry goons gazed upon the light. And their shrill hoots were placated as they beheld his post and the beauty it contained....



The National
I picked up the clear "Think You Can Wait"/"Exile Vilify" 7" when I saw them live (for the second time ) at the Beacon in December. The yellow "Boxer" and electric green "Alligator" were from 4AD's year-end sale. I think they're still available there though "in limited quantities."



New Old Stuff



Christmas Cheer
Redscroll Records in Wallingford, CT has a special where you get to pick out a free holiday LP from a crate if you spend more than $20. The dude was like, "take three or four" and then my friend gave me his haul. Those won't ever get listened to at Christmas. I'mma play 'em at my next party.



Atlas Sound
To qualify for those free Christmas records.



Hmmmm?
II passed by Merle's in Orange, CT this afternoon and browsed around. Aside from learning that they'd gotten and quickly sold a big stash of Smiths stuff over the holidays (:rage:) and that their one token copy of "Sandinista" was missing a disc (one away from having all of the major Clash records), I found this.

I already had one (pictured up top) and the signature's dollars-to-donuts a fake, but for 6 bucks I think it's worth having for curiosity's sake. The record's in better shape than my other copy anyway.



Zoom in and Enhance!
It says: "To my one + only fan Erik Bubel. Keep rapping brother!!- Beastie Boys." Dated to December 1986, in what looks like possibly different handwriting (the 'e's and 'r's are noticeably different in person)- still think it's probably fake.

I've picked up a bunch more stuff over the last few months. Lots of Radiohead (of course), some old movie soundtracks, current releases, etc.

EDIT: I swear I rotated those pictures in Imgur. I did it several times, in fact. Sorry if half are sideways.

I'm kind of interested in both, but more torn on the Halo Soundtrack. I know the music was great, but I've never thought that it was something incredible. Maybe the fact that I thought moments in Halo CE were awesome is a testament to the soundtracks power cause I don't really remember too many songs from it.

Yeah, I thought I'd recognize one or two songs but when I put it on a whole lot of it was instantly familiar. Halo CE had a killer soundtrack. These re-done songs are really good, although not necessarily better than the originals.

Admittedly, I really have it mostly for novelty's sake.

Yeah, their site crashed initially. Took them about 40 mins to get it back up, then I went in and got mine pretty easily. Sorry you missed it

edit: http://infinitycat.com/wordpress/archives/1336 looks like they will have black ones up next week.
