    Keiji Haino, Jim O'Rourke, Oren Ambarchi - Imikuzushi
    Wild Beasts - Smother
    Bon Iver - Bon Iver, Bon Iver
    Modest Mouse - The Moon & Antartica
    The Mountain Goats - Heretic Pride
    Colin Stetson - And It Fought to Escape (New History Warfare Vol 1.)

    Maybe not too exciting for some of you but I'm just starting out my collection and want to have some old (and a few new) favorites in it
    All good shit there. I DID find that Mountain Goats album in the dollar bin once, but that was a fluke. Records are all about what you love, so every purchase you make is probably good. Especially at the start when you get to buy all those albums you're a huge nut for.

    The Byrds - Turn! Turn! Turn!
    Contortions - Buy
    Fripp & Eno - No Pussyfooting
    The Incredible String Band - The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter

    Metro - Metro
    Gary Numan - Replicas
    Patti Smith - Horses

    Fun fact: DJ Shadow was digging next to me in this shop. The owner called him because he got a bunch of new stuff in. I had no idea that it was him. Nice guy.

    Michael Jacson - Man in the Mirror

    12"
    Delaney & Bonnie - The Vest Best of Delaney & Bonnie.
    Not much of a fan of "Best Of" collections, but this is one that is actually worth listening to. And it was only $2, fucking score.


    Andrew, that's an awesome story.

    the people in this thread know their shit... always inspired.

    Bit the bullet this morning and shelled out $30 for the 2 Bears LP. I usually buy my favority album from each year, i know its only march but im pretty sure this will remain the record of the year for me.

    Have a meeting w/ someone after work to pick up some 45s.... around 115 of them. Also ordered some 45 sleeves this morning, got a great deal on 100.

    Ah, speaking of 45s, let me know if you're still interested in selling some of those old singles you have.

    $6. It is at least a $20 record. It is the ZE release too. The dude who owns this spot is super into prog and shit, so I don't think he knew what he had.

    Yeah, I was excited. I need to make sure it plays okay, but it looked pretty good. Yesterday was one of the best days I've ever had in terms of finding awesome records I had been looking for for awhile now in good shape at decent prices. I had never seen the Patti Smith, Incredible String Band, Van Morrison or Bowie records used at any of the 4-5 shops I frequent.

    A Sabbath record (I think the first one) and one other thing I didn't notice. I was bummed he got to the Sabbath first.

    edit: so far so good on this new batch, $27 for around 110 45s. The first 10 were pretty beat up, and I started to worry. (damaged Jose Feliciano - Light My Fire, and an Aretha Franklin) But then I started to strike it rich. James Brown, Elton John, Michael Jackson. Finish after dinner....

    Remember the rule, if you'll regret not having done so, buy it. Love that album, but not that much (yeah, I see it is only 1000 copies).

    Decided against it because I found another record that I've been hunting for, and at a lower price:

    Neil Young and Crazy Horse - Ragged Glory
    Rapeman - Two Nuns and a Pack Mule
    REM - Chronic Town

    It's pretty clear when a record is beat up or severely scratched; the most obvious things to look for are deep scratches across several grooves. Those are the ones that will cause your record to skip... Another thing to look at is the first groove itself which can be noticeably fucked up if the record wasn't taken care of.
    I want to start listening to vinyl because my mom gave me some great old albums from her record collection. How much should I spend on a record player?

    I'm comfortable with your pricing them out, I'm not trying to get them for free and I know you're not going to rip me off. Your call, though, I understand if you're not comfortable. You live in LA, I assume?

    Oh hey, the library was having one of their annual book/CD/VHS/etc sales today, I got all these CD's for $2.25.

    Prince Paul - Psychoanalysis (What Is It?)
    Jandek - Interstellar Discussion
    Ultramagnetic MC's - Critical Beatdown
    Brian Wilson - Smile
    Spike Jones - Spiked! The Music of Spike Jones
    Parliament - The Clones of Dr. Funkenstein

    I haven't heard any of them yet.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    I'm sure I'll catch hell for this, but warm water and two microfiber rags (one for wiping, one for drying) will work wonders. Perfect for removing fingerprints and dust. Actual dirt is tricky because it's gritty and will turn to mud. Obviously you don't want to wipe that across your records. For records that are REALLY dirty, I carefully rinse with water (don't soak the label) and lightly wash with microfiber and Dove dish soap (if it's soft enough to clean oil off living creatures, it's soft enough for my records.), followed by careful rinse, wipe with dry microfiber, and finally air dry. Again, this method has worked for me with no adverse results, but others in here will scoff at that and say I'm full of shit.

    You can also buy record cleaning kits at nearly any record store. I've seen chemically-treated microfiber cleaning rags sold in individual packets as well. Chemicals make me nervous about residue and excess friction on the needle, hence my preference for easy-rinsing Dove liquid soap.

    Critical Beatdown. Absolute masterpiece, easily my favorite of the many fantastic late-80s rap albums. Four Horsemen is also quite good, dark and jazzy. Funk Your Head Up is disappointing and should be explored a bit later, stick with the great stuff at first. The Basement Tapes is also worth checking out. Uneven and demo-y, it contains their earliest recordings and is really only for folks who really, really like them.

    believe it or not this was the idea that stuck in my head. I read about someone else using this method, but it seemed kinda out there. Wanted to see what ur initial recommendation was before I went forward w/ it.... Guess it's soap and water then, I'll report back w/ the results.
