Not quite.

 

The US retailers did this to mark albums that were being returned to the suppliers, unsold.

 

They were called 'cut outs', and much like books and magazines used to be, the retailer could return unsold stock from their shops for credit, while the suppliers went on to wholesale these 'cut out's' for a significant margin reductions to bulk buyers, who then retailed them again at a retail discount.

 

To my knowledge, this was never done with vinyl records in Australia, and certainly not with US pressings (which were relatively rare in this country in the 80's) - the far majority of our retailed stock was local, lest it be sourced overseas and then marked 'imported', and that retailed at significant extra cost.

Very interesting, but this was purchased from an Aussie, unless they brought it in the US and brought it here with them maybe, but they said they brought it here like that back at that time? Who knows - the thing with preloved vinyl - they hold secrets of their journey I guess.

 

Just as a side note - I mentioned it to a friend of mine in the UK and she said in the UK the record shops there would do that too to on the covers to show the imports. 

 

Guess the secret is with the record now :)

 

I don't care either way really, whatever it's story is - it is a near mint copy and they are hard to find from 1984. 

 

Thanks for the reply.

I have several LPs with corner cuts or hole stamped 

I always thought after speaking to some industry people - that those records were sample or promo units that were given to DJs and people in the recording industry 

yes here in the states... A cut corner... Are and were known to be called cut outs..

 

 

at deep discounts... Or in the Bargain  bin...

 

Only a few dollars or less....

This album changed my life :) . A salesperson from an audio shop in Sydney played this album for me when testing my old turntable as in my opinion it didn’t sound good and I was so impressed how good my TT can sound and I told him that I have seen that album many times on the record shops and he told me “I’m pretty sure no this one” and then he explained me that it was an special pressing and also explained me about the whole setup pre-amp, power amp, speakers.

I have had several copies of the album looking the “special one” I was very happy with the Japanese but then got the one in the picture, a first US pressing but then I was told in the forum that there’s a half speed pressing which is the one to have.

At the same time I started upgrading my gear.
The music is pretty good as well, Boz Scaggs - Silk degrees

I am currently spinning one of my 3 copies of DSOTM

 

Just testing or re-familiarising the sound quality again 

This pressing is the 2001 EU Remastered reissue 180gr

https://www.discogs.com/Pink-Floyd-The-Dark-Side-Of-The-Moon/release/3211255

 

 

 

In my opinion it is very close to the 1977 reissue - that is excellent 

https://www.discogs.com/Pink-Floyd-The-Dark-Side-Of-The-Moon/release/4139588

 

 

But not as good as the 2016 EU Remastered reissue 

https://www.discogs.com/Pink-Floyd-The-Dark-Side-Of-The-Moon/release/9287809


Artist - Pink Floyd ‎

Title - The Dark Side Of The Moon

I wonder if they sound differently on different systems, or you become accustomed to your own music on your system???

      Item: Various Vinyl Classical Organ
      Price Range: Free
      Item Condition: Used 26 classical organ titles, ive taken a picture of the spines to indicate what's there, will not separate
       
      Pickup from Jervis Bay or Sylvania NSW
       
       

    • By Warren M.
      Item Condition: Most records UNPLAYED MINT. Others NM played once or twice on audiophile system. Boxes in exceptional condition for age VG+. Sleeves and booklets in NM condition. Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Bronte (Sydney Eastern Suburbs) State: New South Wales Payment Method: Paypal, EFT, Cash on pickup Reason for selling: Financial stress Further information: 

      This Georg Solti / Vienna Philharmonic Wagner Ring performance/recording is still regarded by many as the best on record, and no subsequent reissue even gets close to equalling these spectacularly good limited edition pressings by Decca UK.
       
      Released in 1970 as a limited special edition. 22 records in 5 boxes enclosed in a uniquely designed outer slipcase.
       
      At the time it was the highest priced record set on the market and sold out soon after release! I recall "Mr Rowe Street" (Sydney's most iconic classical record store owner) pointing to the "last unsold copy in Australia" and the following week it was gone.

      The boxes are now 50 years old and inevitably the outer cover and box spines have sustained minor degradation over that time, but remain in beautiful condition overall. I've conservatively classed them as VG+.

      Everything else ranges from NM to MINT condition!!! Most of the vinyl has NEVER been played.

      Each box has full libretto in German and English along with detailed synopsis of each opera as well as technical recording details.
       
      The full set weighs just under 12 kg before packing it up protectively for shipping, so allow at least 13 kg shipping weight. Note that I have access to much better insured interstate shipping rates than Australia Post. For instance estimate for fast door-to-door delivery to inner Melbourne OR even inner Perth suburbs from Sydney, including insurance, would be under $30! 

      There is a similar-condition set (maybe not quite as good) on eBay for UK£330 (about AU$600) plus shipping (+$200 to Australia) plus GST.
       
      PRICE IS NEGOTIABLE
       
      Additional information from Discogs
      Wagner's Der Ring Des Nibelungen 22 LP Decca Box Set Incredible 1970 UK TWENTY TWO stereo LP boxed set of the complete edition of Richard Wagner's four part opera, 'Der Ring des Nibelungen', also known as 'The Ring Cycle' featuring the four operas 'Das Rheingold','Die Walkure', 'Siegfried' and 'Gotterdammerung'.

      There is also a unique three record introduction to 'The Ring' set narrated by Deryck Cooke featuring excerpts from the four operas.

      Each opera is in its own separate wooden ended partition with full size libretto booklets containing synopsis & full transcription for the operas.
      The performance is THE classic version by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Georg Solti,
       a powerful orchestral drama, phenomenal performance and superb sound.

      The whole ensemble is enclosed in a very weighty carved wooden box with gilded front panel.

      The Rat Pack – Live At The Sands – 2LP Limited reissue in gatefold - BRAND NEW & SEALED.
      2014 rmastered set, originally recorded live at The Sands Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada on September 7, 1963. Includes liner notes by Bill Zehme. Digitally remastered by Lee Herschberg. Pressed in the Netherlands and sounds fantastic.
      For those whose favourite part of the legendary Sinatra/Count Basie LIVE AT THE SANDS album was Frank's lengthy comedic monologue, THE RAT PACK: LIVE AT THE SANDS will arrive like manna from hipster's heaven. The disc features an entire performance by the storied "rat pack" of the Chairman and his musical pals Dean Martin and Sammy Davis, Jr., but most of the show is given over to shtick and banter. Fittingly, Sinatra gets the most straight-ahead musical time with a brace of sterling ballads whose appearance should delight hardcore fans. Fortunately, the humorous barbs passed around the stage for the bulk of the performance are extremely sharp and funny (if politically incorrect in the extreme). Taken as a comedy album with some stirring musical moments, this disc is a gem for those who revere the Rat Pack, as they are captured at the peak of their powers and popularity, exuding hipness from every pore. LIVE AT THE SANDS is a bona fide cultural artefact documenting one generation's apex of cool.    $35

       

      Alan Parsons Project – I Robot – 2LP LEGACY 2013 release 35th Anniversary Edition - BRAND NEW & SEALED.

      Lovely double album package.    $45







      Led Zeppelin - How The West Was Won (SUPER DELUXE EDITION) – 4LP, 3CD, DVD and Book – 2018 EU pressed Box Set. BRAND NEW & SEALED.

Standouts include a 25-plus minute version of 'Dazed And Confused' and a 21-minute medley based around 'Whole Lotta Love'. The performances also capture the band introducing songs from its then-unreleased album 'Houses Of The Holy', which would be released nine months later. The Super Deluxe Boxed Set contains: Remastered audio on three CDs and four 180-gram vinyl LPs. DVD of the album in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround and PCM Stereo, plus photo gallery. High-def download card of all stereo audio content at 96kHz/24 bit. A 52 page book filled with rare and previously unpublished photos of the band at each of the concert locations, plus memorabilia and ephemera.

      Here's the newest one : YouTube
    • By Warren Jones
      Item Condition: As New Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is included in price. Suburb or Town: Terang State: Victoria Payment Method: Reason for selling: Never used Further information: I have decided to sell some of my Wings and Paul McCartney LP's. All were bought new by me in the 1970/80's and all are Australian pressings. Some like Wings over America have never been out of the jacket. All are as NEW, most are first Aussie pressings. The record jackets and inner sleeves are in the same condition they came new from Brashes in Dee Why.
       
      This is a once in a life time opportunity to obtain effectively new old stock LP's.
       
      I know how difficult it can be to buy used LP's so I'm happy for anyone to audition on my Technics SP10. I played Wings Wild Life for the first time last night and without cleaning it was as you would expect from a new LP.
