Woah, $2.20 is dirt cheap. Thats 20 cents more than what the Goodwills around here charge for one record. Well theres the Goodwill bins which charge by the pound but if you think you're going to find anything good there you're sorely mistaken.

Went to goodwill today, picked upa first press of the Isley bros twist and shout LP, which is rare apparently? In all right condition considering it's 49 years old. Also got Mexican presses of 5th Dimension and Ventures 7"s in mint condition, which is weird since they're from goodwill.

I'm pretty sure all of the bands on Factory owned their own music. I know for a fact that New Order did, so I feel like that wouldn't be a huge problem. I could be totally wrong though.

Yeah the first album was on Factory as well so I don't think it's a problem

I've never been somewhere that didn't have it. I was surprised to find that I didn't do I actually bought it. A taste of honey is a cool song. I bought the one with Spanish flea too cuz I love the poo poo outta that song. I almost bought the reel of it once too but I figured that was pointless ha.

Got confirmation that I got a job today and I got my unemployment in order (after waiting for 3 hours in the most depressing building on Earth) so I figured it's time I treated myself to some records. I got:

T-connection - Pure & Natural
Siouxsie & the Banshees - Hyaena (one of my new favorites)
Instant funk - witch doctor
Some German heavy metal flex
Some 12" on Butterfly records
Some 12" on Streetking

Decent & recent from the last little bit:


Found a couple of upgrades not pictured plus some new releases (Stone Coal White, Father's Children). A couple of those are local finds, but I haven't had the chance to dig in the last couple of weeks. Bruce Haack and Joe McPhee turned up at an antique store in a tiny mountain town nearby (pop 2,300) that I was driving through after going to a friend's cabin. Definite weird find, hopefully something as good turns up next week.

God drat, you make this thread what it is. I got restless today so I went out and got some crap, a Sylvester LP, Fred Wesley and the jbs 7", live skull EP, nothing too exciting

I'm looking to lighten up my collection by a couple thousand records and I'm trying to figure out the best sales site to use.

I've got 80s-90s punk, hardcore (nyhc, powerviolence, crust), ambient/experimental, harsh noise, a big collection of 70s-80s funk 45s, old school NY hip hop.. kinda all over the map but a lot of stuff on smaller labels that might not add up to instant ebay sales.

Amazon takes (if I'm getting this right) 33% on a $10 music sale. Gemm has a flat 13% fee, and I'm thinking I will set up shop there. I hear Gemm can be slow for making sales but maybe the stuff I have will take time to sell anyway.

Have any of you sold largish amounts of vinyl online?




The noise and industrial will sell like hot cakes on eBay. The punk too probably . When you do sell em post the link in here I'd love to see what you got

Thanks Jehovaswetness for making those couple weeks with out a job better. In even better knews one of the cooler dudes at my job is gonna sell me a box of hardcore 7"s for $20.

Ahaha, this was given to me as a gag gift once. I forgot it in my car and it melted to hell though.

Mitch Miller's sing alongs are pretty prevalent around here, as well as Chirstmas albums, songs by Broadway performers, compilations from the 60's of "Song's the Whole World Loves" etc., and of course Streisand/Bee Gees/BARRY MANILOW/Chuck Mangione/Hank Williams/Lionel Richie.

Don't forget Andy Williams! Which happens to be the name of this dude an ex dated after me,'so for a while it kinda hurt to look through the thrift stacks

Got a big Ol box of 90s hardcore 7"s from a coworker for $20. I'm pretty sure it was all the poo poo he couldn't make a profit on on eBay, since that's pretty much his second source of income, but there's some cool poo poo mixed with all the no name screamo bandstand garage pink. Highlights include some Policy of 3, Iconoclast, Inkwell, and a Man is the Bastard split. Plus some band I've never heard of that sounds like Mineral but slightly more subdued.

I'm down to trade since I knowna few of y'all are into that kind of thing. I'll post my discogs when I get em all in there.

Here's a link to where 7"s start on my duscogs. Because I am stupid I cant figure out how to show y'all jut what I'm trying to get rid of, so you'll just have to look past all the $.50 singles and find something piques your interest. Email me at hitlersmotorcycle at gmail dot com

I recently found a copy of the Portsmouth Sinfonia's first album in a charity thrift store hidden in the mounds of old Al Hirt and Herb Alpert records. If any of you aren't familiar with the Sinfonia, they were a group of students who (mostly) couldn't play any of the instruments they were assigned. Brian Eno produced their first album and played the clarinet. Here's their version of "Also Sprach Zarathustra" (which you've probably heard by now):

I think I almost crapped myself out of glee when I found it.

Wow. I can't believe I haven't heard this before. On Tuesday i'm going to the local crap record store and I m going to crate dig until y nose bleeds from mold and dust. Last time I left with some alright 12"s nd a beat up Mandrill LP but t I am very very determinded to find something cool

Has anyone ever had good or bad luck buying packages of vinyl off eBay (IE 100 45s for $20, etc)? I realize digging is digging and it's always random in terms of the music selection, I mean with people getting screwed over on quality, damage in shipping, etc.

I usually have alright luck, sometimes they don't have sleeves, sometimes they're in great condition. Send the seller a message and ask about the I guess

Welp, I seemed to have stumbled into a gold mine of bad disco and movie soundtracks over the weekend. A roller rink went out of business and was selling everything off so I bought what was left of their vinyl about 100 LPs. Still going through it seeing what I got. Anyway these are some pretty recent additions.

Can anyone tell me what this was/is used for? I found it in a bargain bin at a Half-Price Books for 50 cents. It's a double LP of ATLiens by Outkast that came in a plain white cover, but it's just the instruments. I am guessing it has something to do with DJ'ing or something because it lists the BPMs next to each song title, but I'm not sure.



I have the same thing but mine has a different label. Yours looks like a bootleg, especially since its misspelled as "Outkst"

So wait, are the discs actually real flexis just like the lovely ones you used to get in Readers Digest where you had to put a coin on the label to make sure your changers 500 gram tonearm didn't stop the thing from actually turning. They had the fidelity of AM radio being transmitted over CB radio. Is this some new trend I've somehow missed?

Its not really a trend, a lot of crust punk and had hardcore bands have been putting them since music mags stopped putting them in there.

After listening to the Ultra-Lounge compilations for 2 days straight I had to go out and buy a ton of exotica. Slim pickings for the cheap stuff, but i got some scores in the store's free box, including this gem:



Its really pretty ok actually. One of the songs on the b-side (forgot where in the sequence) is actually really beautiful and should not be hidden in the last half of a novelty accordion orchestra album.

Farts Domino posted:

So my record fair was today and it was pretty excellent. Vendors did well, I made as much as I spent, which is all I really ask for.

I bought mostly surf poo poo but a few others

LPs:
The Challengers - Wipe Out!
a comp on flyright called "chicken stuff houston ghetto blues" featuring Hop Wilson, Big Walter and Juke Boy Bonner
The T-Bones - Everyone's Gone to the Moon
The Marketts - the Batman Theme
Soul Survivors - WHen the Whistle Blows, Anything Goes

45s:
Aaron Neville - Spaceman / She Took You For a Ride
Googie Rene & his Combo - Break It Up / Side-Track
Googie Rene & his Combo - Wiggle-Tail pts 1 and 2
The Rhythm Kings - Those Lonely Lonely Nihts / Rockin' Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu
The Popcorns - Zero-Zero / Chinese Twist
Rocking Bros. - Behind The Sun / Rock-It (KIILLER guitar in an otherwise New Orleans R&Bish record)
Sonny Hall - Poor Planet Earth / The Battle for the Moon (weird semi-country)
Matt Lucas - I'm Moving On / My Heavenly Angel
Jimmie & the Night Trippers - Cruising / Night Hop
The Strangers - Young Maggie / Boogie Man

The thing was, the day before I dropped by a friend's place who decided he wasn't going to sell. Probably did just as well if not better

Nearly all of these 75 cents:
The Allisons - Surfer Street / Money (Surfer Street is one of the coolest girl group numbers I've heard in a WHILE)
The Exports - Seat Belts Please / Car Hop
Little Willie Littlefield - Easy Go / Ruby-Ruby
The Dixiebelles - Southtown USA / Why Don't You Set Me Free (not their best but they're great. Sorta sloppy girl-hollerin')
The Nite Riders - Six Button Benny / Apple Cider
The Surfaris - Dune Buggy / Boss Baracuda
Classie Ballou - Dream Love / Hey Pardner! (great Louisiana blues/instrumental)
Guitar Gable - Congo Mombo / Life Problem
Plus LPs - Clarence Gatemouth Brown - Alright Again
Osibisa
Roy Head - Treat me Right (compilation)
Earl King - THose Lonely, Lonely Nights (compilation on Ace)

All in all plenty to listen to

Still going through photos but this one gives an OK idea


Somehow my chef gave me the day of our biannual record show off. And I get paid they day before, gonna blow like half that drat thing there.

In other news I got OG press of Current 93's Earth Covers Earth yesterday and it is beautiful, despite the big smudge/scrape thing on the first track (totally not NM, rear end in a top hat). And in a few days the Warsaw bootleg 12" will be here (their first 3 recordings!) and I will be a happy dude. Getting a smartphone has done wonders for my collection. And not for my bank account.
