    Both are said to be muddy and people also complain that the original is too flat while the remaster overcompensates with vocals and guitars.

    Gotcha; guess I'll find out about the flatness of the original later today.

    I've never had much of a problem with the remaster, but it's also my least favorite of the original three Gun Club albums, and I'd put it behind Mother Juno as well. It's still a killer album.

    Like Icey said, you should save a bit for a better table. For $300-400 you can get some really nice shit. Personally, if I had that money I'd get a vintage Thorens and live my days in audiophilic bliss. Regardless, your options expand greatly at that price point. What you should do until then is throw down the money on a new cartridge before you damage your records any further. Read reviews & ask questions on audio forums.

    Damn, I just looked at the repress info from 2009: Grab this reissue folks. The one I have is already selling for $50+ a copy.

    Could it be "out of stock" because it hasn't been released yet?

    And hot damn, RDJ was just the best. I defy anyone to show me a producer more forward-thinking AND catchy-as-hell than Aphex.

    Went digging in Petaluma today and for $29 I picked up:

    Nick Lowe - Labour of Lust
    Bobby Whitlock - S/T
    The Temptations - Live at the Copa
    Ray Charles - Ray Charles (Coronet Records, not the Atlantic record of the same name)
    Johnny Rivers - At the Whiskey a Go Go
    Warren Zevon - Excitable Boy
    Guttermouth - Friendly People
    Isaac Hayes - Shaft
    Johnny Cash - Live at Folsom Prison
    Johnny Cash - This is Johnny Cash
    Allman Brothers Band - Eat a Peach
    CCR - The Royal Albert Hall Concert

    Incidentally, I already have a nice copy of "Labour of Lust," so I'll sell that cheap to anyone who's interested. Probably my favorite Rockpile record; this and Dave Edmunds' "Repeat When Necessary" are so good.

    Well, the US editions should be really easy to find. I've seen those a few places. The Warp ones apparently had multiple manufacturing problems and only got shipped out a couple of weeks ago, so maybe more of those will surface soon.

    Yeah, it's pretty awesome. And I just noticed that I snagged an og stereo copy of At Folsom Prison, they actually bleeped out "shit." You know, "this is being recorded for a record on Columbia Records, so you can't say hell or *bleeeep* or any of that." Awesome!

    Funny that dude was asking about a good turntable to get and ods.. mentioned he had a Music Hall mmf-2.2. I finally bought mine about a week ago and it showed up today! Probably the biggest purchase I've ever made and I'm definitely hyped on this thing.

    Yeah i'm in love with mine too. It's so classy looking and it sounds great. I've gotta upgrade the cartridge sometime but for now it's still excellent.

    Sa-Fire - Let Me Be The One

    LP:
    Air - 10,000 Hz Legend
    Horace Andy - In the Light
    Black Flag - Damaged
    Grooverider - Mysteries of Funk
    Missy Elliott - Under Construction
    Infiniti - Skynet
    Killing Joke - Killing Joke
    Mantronix - Music Madness
    Sea of Cortez - Age of Anxiety
    Various Artists - Backstreet Brit Funk - The Re-Edits
    Various Artists - Xen Cuts
    Various Artists - The Kings of Drum + Bass (compiled by 4Hero & DJ Marky)
    Various Artists - Metalheadz Box Set

    Plus some mail order:

    7":

    Is Damaged the OG Unicorn press? You have a serious set of shit there. That Missy Elliot record is hot fire.

    Is that the spot you told me to check out? If so, I grabbed a first press (Columbia 1A) of On The Corner by Miles Davis from there. That place is golden.

    No, this was a different spot. I had never heard of it before today. It was bizarre and completely awesome. I love Oakland.

    Damaged is the first SST press unfortunately.

    The biggest score was the Air record I think. I paid $10...looks like it is at least a ~$30 record on Discogs.

    Nice. That is a total score. That Missy record is a score too at whatever price you paid for it. I got super lucky and found it for $4 about a year ago.

    And the Black Flag stuff doesn't matter unless you get lucky enough to get a copy with the Anti-Parent sticker on the front. I have a Unicorn copy without the sticker, so what's the point.
