  1. Hi ya Graeme - I've got an alum Midas body 103R with Paratrace Expert Stylus mods fitted, but the cart itself is still in a baggie waiting for fitment ('cause Lockdown 2.0) Will keep in touch on how it sounds once on the spinner.
  2. Sooo dramatic!.... 😆 ABBA - The Album (Japanese)
  3. Mastodon - The Hunter Superb album that I was sooo tempted to get on picture disc, as apprently it sounds quite good, but it's censored!!!! (WTF) There's a red single vinyl one avilable too, and a 2 x 12" 45rpm black set with a gorgeous gatefold and different art, but nah..... ...at least 'Once More Round The Sun' was at 2 x 33rpm. It's plain old black single 'Hunter' for now.
  4. The War On Drugs - Wagonwheel Blues The debut with Kurt Vile on guitar - more chaotic with him in there, but the melodies & words are all Adam Granduciel (according to the album liner notes, not Wikipedia), and it shows. Just a great band I wish I'd found 10 years ago, not 2.
  5. Working all day on the '9-5' this Satdee at home.... so more vinyl. Catherine Wheel - Cats & Dogs (B-sides and more) - RSD limited release from 2018. Storm Thorgerson cover, as usual.
  6. Richard Hawley - Coles Corner limited coloured repress. Beautiful SQ - cannot compare to an original as its $300+ a copy! Either way, just a wonderful album and one of his best.
  7. Makes sense doesn't it - especially when most of these businesses use one or the other of two central packaging warehouses, and one is in fire-ravaged Oregon. No staff and very compromised access routes around the region. Typically 5-7 Business day delays there on handling. And then, add in COVID. Think I'll go DHL thru new lot, Planet Express (although again, they use that Oregon facility, so may have to wait an extra 2-3 weeks)
  8. What's everyone's latest experience with sending from the USA right now? I used Shopmate last year (horribly expensive and have a terrible reputation, but I was lucky). Thinking about perhaps Shipito, or Hopshopgo this time. I hear MyUS are also atrocious lately (good businesses who are simply overloaded and overwhelmed by COVID delays, perhaps)?
  9. Bill Withers - Bill Withers' Greatest Hits 1980's UK 'Nice Price' red label version (CBS 32343) VG+/VG+ The cover has a rip top right and middle (as shown above) and one on back middle, where the original price and 'Nice Price' stickers were removed at some point. Otherwise really solid with zero ringwear evident. The wax is absolutely gorgeous without a mark in intense overhead light - glossy and clean. Rare compilation that is impossible to find locally. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Delivery Methods: NO PICKUPS SORRY - mail only.

  10. 1984 EU original pressing w/blue labels in gatefold (Epic 26044) VG+/VG++ The cover is solid and clean with just a small tear top right front as shown, where the price sticker was removed some time ago. Inside gatefold is very bright and white, and clean. Little scuffing on the back but again, very solid. The wax is again beautiful with clear surfaces and bright gloss. Really an amazing pressing with stunning audio staging throughout. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Delivery Methods: NO PICKUPS SORRY - mail only.

  11. Not the greatest pressing SQ in the world, but we don't have a choice on vinyl for this one, unfortunately.
