Love Herb Alpert. There's a modern remix version of his songs too.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Random question (I may have asked it but I don't remember the answers) - do any of you vinyl fiends buy an extra copy to store away when buying a hot new release or collector's item?

Just curious.

No, I don't buy vinyl to resell. I buy it to listen. I do keep them in the best shape I can, but that's more for audio quality.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

I don't think I've ever bought multiple copies. Pretty much buy to listen. I have traded/sold some over the years, not that often though.

Never. The only time I end up with multiple copies is if I have a so-so copy, and then find a really, really nice copy at a store, and can't turn it down.

But I never buy multiple copies of new vinyl.

Nice job! I'd love to have those first two. (And I'm a huge XTC fan but have enough!)

I see a lot of Jam love lately. I just ran all my Jam albums through the Spin Clean so it's like I have all new copies!

Picked up the 5 LP set from Die ärzte "Die Nacht der Dämonen" via amazon.de

Nice collection, my only complaint is the booklet is what was included with the CD (same size). Sounds great though

I went to an event at the Egyptian last night for Day of the Dead (1985). Waxork just released a deluxe edition of John Harrison's score on vinyl and - wow - did they ever do a phenomenal job on this thing. 2-LP, gatefold, THE DEAD WALK insert liner notes; it's a thing of beauty.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

The new Sleigh Bells LP is a pretty sweet package:



It's also meant to have a download code, although I didn't notice it in there, so I'll have to double check for it.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

I sorta intended to buy Day of the Dead today but it wasn't in stock at the local place I visit. I can however report the clash boxset sounds amazing. Getting read to restore a couple of mono block amps with a friend of mine. Hopefully learn something from him. Just need a real pre amp now.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

The Clash box set looks cool, but I already have original issue releases of London Calling and Combat Rock. Also, is the debut album the UK or US version?

Did anyone end up ordering one of these? I hear they're starting to arrive and the reviews have been pretty positive overall. I'm in the market for a new tt and have it narrowed down to the Orbit or Debut Carbon.
