    This lovely clear blue vinyl reissue of the Beachwood Sparks' debut arrived on my doorstep an hour ago.

    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.

    Phoenix: Bankrupt!
    Violent Femmes: Violent Femmes
    Sound City: Real to Reel
    Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist: Orignial Soundtrack
    The Smiths: Meat is Murder
    Ramones: Ramones
    The Gorillaz: Plastic Beach
    Blur: Parklife
    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?
    Coachella 07 (the introduction), 08 (the bands), 09 (the documentary), 10 (the people i came with), 11 (the relationship test... we passed), 12 (whatever the weather, Dirty Epic forever), 13 (the year of the troll)

    Yup. I have four orders from years past that have never been updated to "Paid" and I have all of those records in my collection. I'd message the guy just to get an update.

    Shopping the "dollar bin" equivalent of discogs results in some weird groupings of purchases:
    New Edition - If It Isn't Love 12"
    Berlin - Love Life LP
    Chaka Khan - I Feel for You LP
    Arcadia - So Red the Rose LP
    Father MC - Treat Them Like They Want to Be Treated 12"
    Rufus & Chaka Khan - Stompin at the Savoy 2xLP
    Supremes - More Hits by the Supremes LP
    Elton John - Honky Chateau LP
    Missing Persons - Spring Session M
    Usher - 8701 2xLP

    Mailorder:

    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

    That might be the single best album in Elton's entire catalog. Good haul. And that Rufus/Chaka Khan joint should make an appearance at record club some time.

    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)

    Non-Clearance:
    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.

    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.

    Nice. I hadn't really been to Amoeba in a while, but it was hitting today. Good stuff everywhere I looked but I'm on a budget and had to put back a ton of really great stuff.

    Same here. I switched my choices about seven or eight times before I settled on the first two from Amoeba.

    I've never owned My War on vinyl and was expecting side A on a used copy to be a bit more marked and play with a bit more surface noise than side B.

    I was right.

    Going to the bay this weekend, guess I gotta go to Rasputin and pick up another Orange Juice release. Only got You Can't Hide Your Love Forever on RSD.

    Yeah, they had a few copies of the other ones. I grabbed the last copy of You Can't Hide Your Love Forever. It took a bit of searching to find the RSD section. Amoeba Berkeley had two of the OJ albums as well.

    So, holy crap. I paid $16 apiece for these (and used a $10 gift certificate I found in a jacket pocket that I had forgotten about) and they're both selling for crazy high prices. Amoeba Berkeley always gets random stuff like this and doesn't know how to price it. Score! I only saw one of the Frank Ocean LPs but if you're in Berkeley it'd be worth checking to see if there are anymore. Apparently it's an edition of 750 and was released on RSD, so it's probably gonna be tough to track down.

    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.

    Hmm... it never crossed my mind, but I gotta hit up records stores in Bakersfield later this month.

    (Lucky me, I got a wedding to go to in Bakersfield... on Memorial Day weekend!)

    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:

    LP:
    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.
