Some of the jazz stuff looks neat but I ain’t waiting in line to eagerly pay $40-50 for a new record. These days digging through the bins for surprises is more fun.

My favorite is finding records on different visits with “Property of X” handwritten in the cover, and being like “Dang Mr. and Mrs. Joe Carter had good taste.”

I've never really done RSD, is there a way to get a specific release? There are like 20 record stores in my city, do I just call them all to ask if they're going to get the Malfunkshun LP?

                  tell me...
Some stores post pre RSD surveys to see what people are interested in and how many copies they should request, but requesting X amount of a certain LP doesn’t mean they will actually get anywhere close to that many. The best you can do if you actually need the LP in your hands ASAP (you really don’t) is find a store that is doing RSD and show up when it opens, and hope that all their shipments came.

I know that it's called "The Eric Carr Box Set" but it looks like it's only 2 lps

I'll just pick up an old copy of Creatures Of The Night and Asylum for like $5 each, thanks.

Check store lists if they post em, otherwise you're getting in line early as poo poo and hoping for the best.

That first Mazarati album is fantastic. Especially 100MPH. A forgotten Prince classic.

Do you find something comical about my appearance when I'm driving my automobile?
If there’s something you really want, check online after the fact too. RSD at this point is like the Collectors Edition of collecting.

That's what I do now. I learned that with a little patience I can get the ones I want at retail price from Discogs or eBay within a week of RSD.

Not the Bluey “Dance Mode” record though. That poo poo is still going for >$200 on eBay for the RSD one.

What attitude problem?
Yeah it really can be a mixed bag. I’ve definitely been hit by FOMO and bought stuff that day that is sitting there months later at a discount, but then there are other titles I’d bite the bullet and pay over retail on eBay only for it to continue to climb.

If you have the means to, wake up early and get in line. The cool people I’ve talked with far outweigh the eBay scalper crowd.

that Todd Rundgren album is quite good, his best since 1981 if you ask me. currently copies go for $100+ so I'll be picking that one up at least.

Took a huge crate to Prospector Records in Portland but didn't have a lot of time to shop around so now I have a bunch of credit.

Found some gems though

Looks like BBE is doing/has done represses of their "J Jazz Deep Modern Jazz from Japan" series of albums.



and a pretty neat book up on Light in the Attic, kinda wished I hadn't blown my Christmas money on other stuff there last week.

New local record store opened near me. They're called Pizza Records, and put my records in a pizza box after I bought them. Brilliant.

apparently Beth Gibbons has a new album coming out in a few months up for pre-order? And the CD seems to come with a signed card, so anyone into Portishead/Out of Season should get that because the promo track sounds real good

also a remastered Roseland NYC Live is due this year too

shaping up to be a great year for trip hop fans already

I like to think someone got really high one night, ordered a pizza, accidentally put one of their records in the lid of the box and wrote down “PIZZA RECORDS!?!?” and now here we are

Wasn't that Licorice Pizza's deal too? Probably misremembering the box thing
