Yeee Ha!
The store accepted to exchange my scratched record against a new one that was not in the shelves yesterday (hidden stock?).
And the new copy has a smaller number, 1475 instead of 1478. :D

Amongst RSD releases, I also got:
  • Jimi Hendrix - Purple Haze (7" single, US edition, N°740 stamped in golden letters, there is a european edition too with a different numbering stamped in black on white and it has a different price)
  • David Bowie - Changes (7" picture disc)
  • Johnny Winter - Live Bootleg Series Vol 4 (translucid LP)
  • Johnny Winter - It's My Life, Baby (12" + digital download)
  • Jaco Pastorius - The Warner Years (12")

Unless somebody is gaming the eBay listings, one copy of the purple vinyl 45, without even a mention of the edition number or a photo of the actual copy, has already sold for $99.99! There's one born every minute...

are the price tags right on the sleeve?


Calm down Jay.

If the price tags leave glue residue, here is what you do.
1. Put a dab of WD-40 on a paper towel, and rub off the glue residue.
2. Put some rubbing alcohol on a paper towel, and wipe off the WD-40.

mine played flawless, same with one given to a friend, my 2nd copy unplayed

g_g, those numbers aren't from the batch at the record store, unless they have more stashed in the back ... maybe shipped outta the oakland shop


... also picked up the beefheart dlp at aquarius on rsd, directly across the street from 1234 go

+1 There's an app for that. The same one you use to clean your vinyl records, PC screens etcetera. They're made for that purpose! Read the label 1st... :roll:

Yes Jay, I can report, for the record, that there are as Vince Neil of Motley Crue infamy would say "mother fuckin' price tags right there on the mother fuckin' sleeves!". :P

why does it have to be a vat?
why not just a standard size bath tub?

Jay has seen Breaking Bad, he knows that battery acid will eat through a bath tub, and lower your property value

I mostly agree with jp. I definately don't buy one for "my vault". I play my records. But, I do hate the stickers. Especially on vinyl jackets, which, most of the time, the sticker rips off some of the color. Sometimes, on the old stuff when there is a strong sticker, the paper gets ripped too.
Some used vinyl stores have their own stickers that are about 2 inches x 4 inches, which include a description of the album. It is either on there forever or you have to rip the jacket to remove it. Way worse than a cut-out.

I agree if the sticker is affixed directly to the cardboard, but no reason to freak over a plastic case? :?:

Anyway, I bought the battery acid. But, my son refuses to pour it on me. So, if Jay wants to fulfill his dream, he needs to drive his lip stick wearing ass to TN and pour it on me.

You need to check with management on that sig. It looks too big to me, and you need to check some kind of box. We don't want to see that shit all the time. Especially, since it's racist. :smoke:

uh
philo...

your son pouring the battery acid on you
would be more like you taking a SHOWER with it -
and not a bath as you were instructed.

now go walk through the jungle with a porkchop tied to your ass.
