Agoria - The Green Armchair
Picked these up from work, all new. Was too hard to hunt down used copies of the older stuff, plus I got some pretty great discounts.
Violent Femmes: Violent Femmes
Sound City: Real to Reel
Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist: Orignial Soundtrack
The Smiths: Meat is Murder
The Gorillaz: Plastic Beach
Daft Punk: Random Access Memories (Pre-Order)
Then miraculously snagged a copy of Tame Impala LE RSD release from Record City, had no idea how the fuck that happened but I'm gonna meet them before their show here in SD and I'm totally getting it signed.
Also, don't know if anyone has heard of "Feedbands" but they take unsigned artists, press their debut album on special vinyl (different colors, etc.), then release it in limited numbers to their subscribers. It's $20 a month and they do not release the name of the bands as they want you to listen for the first time on vinyl. They have a full refund 60 day return policy and the first record is free. Interesting concept, should look it up. Also before anyone asks I'm in no way affiliated with the company.

Discogs question -
Recently made a purchase, sent the money paypal. But the shipper has yet to update the status, and its been almost a week. Has anyone ever ordered something and had it arrive without the 'Seller' updating the status?

Mock Orange - Nines & Sixes (2011 reissue on green marbled vinyl; this is one of my favorite albums from when I was younger, and it was on sale for only $5)
The White Stripes - "Fell in Love With a Girl"/"I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself" 7" (red RSD 2012 version)
Also picked this up at Kurt Vile/The Fresh & Onlys last night:
The Fresh & Onlys - Play it Strange
I cruised by Amoeba on a whim and scored a few hits in the dollar bins:
Poco - Poco (I already have this but haven't been able to find it on my shevles in months, so...)
Hargus "Pig" Robbins - Country Instrumentals of the Year
Dinah Washington - A Memorial Tribute (tribute to Dinah by Ray Charles, Cab Calloway, Sarah Vaughan & Lena Horne. Fucking delicious.)
Rock and Roll Forever (a 70s comp of the Ronettes, the Crystals, Darlene Love, etc)
Black Flag - My War
Anyone needing an 80s copy of "Slip it In," or are interested in blue or black ink versions of "Nervous Breakdown" should head down Amoeba ASAP. Can't imagine those three will stay very long.
FYI, BoC represses may be on the horizon:
Yesterday I hit up Amoeba in Berkeley and Rasputin and grabbed the following:
Rage Against the Machine - Rage Against the Machine (XX picture disc version)
Frank Ocean - Nostalgia, Ultra (Clear vinyl, same people who did the Channel Orange bootleg)
Ozzy Osbourne - Blizzard of Ozz
Orange Juice - You Can't Hide Your Love Forever (RSD release - they had all of them still at Rasputin!)
And then bballarl traded me a copy of Roxy Music - Country Life with the censored cover. Good haul.
Dang. I was going to ask you more about those Frank Ocean bootlegs... interesting. Sound good?
Channel Orange sounded really good, but I haven't had time to listen to Nostalgia yet. I'll report back after I play it tonight.
I found Channel at a store in Bakersfield that had four or five copies called Going Underground Records. Might be worth calling them to see if they have copies of either. I paid $22 for the one I bought there.
I went to a few of them. World Records or whatever was so so, but Going Underground was a real gem. I could have easily spent $300-400 on rare things there, and the guy working the store was very friendly and knowledgeable, and his son was playing Super Mario World the whole time I was in there. Really cool place.
Yeah, that's a great little shop. They had a copy of Dennis Wilson's Pacific Ocean Blue that I should have pulled the trigger on and bought.
Finally got to check out the new used vinyl store that opened nearby. It's surprisingly good for rural Georgia. So good, in fact, that it could end up being really dangerous. Here's yesterday's haul, all reasonably priced (most in the $5-6 range) in really good condition:
Blondie – Parallel Lines
David Bowie – Ziggy Stardust
David Bowie – Station to Station
Elvis Costello & The Attractions – Get Happy!!
Duran Duran – S/T
Elton John – Honky Chateau
Liz Phair – Exile in Guyville
Siouxsie & The Banshees – Nocturne
Squeeze – Sweets from a Stranger
The Stranglers – Rattus Norvegicus
Talking Heads – More Songs About Buildings and Food
Talking Heads – Remain in Light
XTC – Mummer
The owner looked like Ted Nugent and had a "Terrorist Hunting Permit" sticker on the counter, but when I brought my stack to the register he immediately says, "Oh, man. That Liz Phair just went out yesterday. I haven't even had a chance to listen to it yet."
Also, some mail-order vinyl came:
Admiral Fallow – Tree Bursts in Snow (RSD)
Frightened Rabbit – The Midnight Organ Fight (RSD)
Savages – Silence Yourself
Wax Idols – Discipline & Desire
And now I'm done while I can still afford to eat.
Finally got around to inquiring about the lack of status update on my discogs order. Seller apologized and said it shipped last week. Came home and it was here. Packaging was pretty bad, two pieces of cardboard and some brown tape.... records managed to stay in good shape.
