Re: The VINYL Thread!

The surfactant came today and I’m testing it out. The washing record looks like the water penetrates between the grooves better with it.

The cleaning works so well I’m going to check out some used record stores soon.

Black Sabbath S/T was just released as a part of the Rhino High Fidelity Series, AAA cut and limited to 5000 numbered copies. I grabbed a copy, it will probably sell out fast. Can't wait to hear it, I was really impressed with Television's Marquee Moon from the same series.

Looks like they also released Devo's Freedom of Choice in this latest batch. I'm curious to hear what the BS sounds like. Won't be too difficult to improve on the initial WB green label pressings but doubt it can top the OG UK on Vertigo.

Yeah, I doubt it could beat an OG Vertigo, but a nice copy of that would probably cost more money than I'd like. It should be pointed out that this is the North American version of the album from the original US tapes, with Wicked World instead of Evil Woman (the former of which is a better song anyway) as Rhino/Warner doesn't have the rights to the original UK tapes. There has been a bit of general bitching about that, but I'm fine with it (I already have a decent reissue of the UK version anyway).

My PL-115D with transplanted dust cover, lateral counterweight, 45 adapter, and anti-skate knob.

This is currently paired with an Ortofon OM 10 cartridge.

Yep, it lasted maybe a day or so longer on Warner Music Canada's website (which is where I bought it) but now sold out there as well. I'm glad I jumped on it fast, I figured it wouldn't last long. Hopefully this kind of demand helps make Rhino/Warner consider other Sabbath titles for the series.

My copy finally arrived today, can't wait to listen to it tonight. It's already selling for $120-$150 on Discogs, damn I'm glad I didn't snooze on this!

Re: The VINYL Thread!

One of our local record stores purchased a collection of sealed 80s vinyl albums (never opened) from the estate of a collector who passed away. Went down there this morning and picked a few of them up:

Echo & The Bunnymen ..... Porcupine
The FIXX ..... React (recorded live in Montreal & Toronto 1986)
INXS ..... Listen Like Thieves (my favorite of their studio albums)
New Order ..... The Peel Sessions 1982
Simple Minds ..... Live In The City Of Light
Simple Minds ..... Once Upon A Time (fantastic album)
The Pursuit Of Happiness ..... Love Junk (another fantastic album)

Also picked up a sealed copy of the 2004 Rhino edition of Echo & The Bunnymen's debut album Crocodiles. Going to head back there next week to check out some jazz albums ...

Less than $400 CAD. The Crocodiles reissue was the most expensive, actually, at around $95.
