Today I received my MOFI one step of ‘Blood on the Tracks’. The covers are scufffed and the vinyl looks like something from a $2 dollar bin. With shipping, this is around a AU$250 purchase.

 

My RCM sorted the smudges and detritus but damage to the vinyl remains, and it’s audible. 

 

While the pressing is outstanding, it doesn’t make up for the appalling quality control. And this isn’t my first rodeo with faulty MOFI products.

 

Not happy Jan !

Did you order locally or from their US website?

Ordered directly from MOFI.

Bloody disgrace. Hope they promptly send you a new one

Sent them a blunt email with photos and requested a replacement. See what happens.

Any reason you didn't order locally? RRP is $265 here.

I’ve missed out on a couple of MOFI titles when ordering locally. Given the run for these that probably wasn’t an issue, however I was also hoping to get a low number copy. Not that that happened either. Lol.

Paranioa in me says all the rubbishy returns the Yanks get from their local markets get resent here hoping the cost of postage deters returns!

But either way....that is appalling rubbish to send out to a customer!

After seeing that will not buy any Vinyl from them by post ever!

Send it back!

 

I get annoyed when I open a brand new record and find dust on it already, let alone scratches...

 

Grrrr

Local stock is due into Australian distributors early September. Currently we have 10 copies coming which haven't been spoken for as yet.

Wow, I just ordered this and the new thelonius Monk one from MOFI (not released yet).   Hopefully I don’t get this issue.  So far have all in the series none with issues.  Some bought locally some bought directly from MOFI.

 

sometimes when I see those super scratched premium items I think a disgruntled employee has done that on purpose, (pay or job protest?) rather than manufacturing process issue.

Hopefully you can send the photographs and you don’t need to send back as proof.  Have you bought successfully previously from MOFI?

 

@Goatboy What was the number of the bob Dylan?

Number is 1347. 

 

I also noticed mine shipped a good week later than US residents’ copies.

that is crazy - Looks like a bad GZ vinyl pressing.     

 

Did it come in the usual audiophool mofi poly inner sleeve?   It should be pristine.
