I finally got around to buying Wretched's "Beyond the Gate" on vinyl. Got a splatter 1st pressing that was limited to 100. They still haven't gotten that popular yet since the album came out in 2010, and there are still some left.
-snip- yeah what I did was warez. ;)
I have a feeling my collection might be getting a bit big. [img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7185/6889981193_e1103105fa_z.jpg[/img] Mostly due to living in a town with 5 vinyl record stores.:suicide:
dude that's an awesome collection. Never regret the money you spend on LPs. Unmatched joy imo.

For fucks sake. My Division Bell record arrived today, and it was completely soaked. The packaging was wet and crumpled due to the water.

They offered to send me a new one for free as long as I send the old one back. Awesome.

I think Ex-Military would be weird to listen to on vinyl. It just seems unfitting of the project. I'd expect to listen to it on tape or just digitally. Maybe even a blank CD-R before a record.

Still I'd have it just for the artwork though... jeez.

I have not given Death Grip much of a listen, but it really does seem like something that would be released DIY style on a tape or CD-R.
Got Aphex Twin's Richard D. James album today. Sleeve is slightly damaged and there is a slight crackle in the record itself, but it still sounds pretty damn good.
Mellowdrone records didn't come in yesterday so I gotta wait till Tuesday, dang-gum prez day bein a holiday n all. Whats a good way to get rid of static on records?
I often take records to friends houses, as we'll often sit around and listen to music. Can anyone recommend a good record bag? I really don't want to spend a fortune and think a case might be a bit much for me, so I think a bag is what I'm after.
I picked up Gordon Lightfoot and Simon & Garfunkel vinyls for $2 a pop at Savers. There were a couple others I didn't know of and wanted to try out, but I figured I would just start out with the two since they're some of my favorite folk artists. Unfortunately, when I got home to give them a listen my old ass record player sounded a bit warble-y.

I would recommend putting the records in a postage packaging just to be sure the cover's corners dont mess up [img]http://www.taggerbags.com/collection/messenger/flow/flow_full_front_0908.jpg[/img] also: [img]http://uploadpic.org/storage/2011/91BKSyJSPXEqphfO65cd4u3f.jpg[/img]

The records fit quite nicely into the hessian bag, but they're a bit tight and stick out a little from the top of the messenger bag. Also win on the burial purchases, I have untrue and I really want to get Kindred. [editline]20th February 2012[/editline] Also just ordered Coki's newish EP and one of Silkie's albums.

I always planned on buying Donuts on vinyl but never did. Might have to invest.
I need to get Hospice. And Helplessness Blues. Hospice is just one of those albums I can listen to over and over and over again, and never be bored of it.
I'm back from New York, and I picked up some pretty awesome stuff. I got The Division Bell (which turned out to be an unofficial release) and Jethro Tull's Heavy Horses, and I also got new copies of High Violet by The National, Grace by Jeff Buckley and Bitches Brew by Miles Davis (all 180g heavyweight pressings). Also, when I got home I was helping my parents fix their bed frame and I found a first pressing of Atom Heart Mother under there :dance:
Today I got The Psychedelic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators, and Radiohead's Amnesiac. Now I just need Hail to the Thief and I have all of them.

Sometimes the remasters are really crap and thin sounding, but if the vinyl has been ripped perfectly it can deliver 1000% better sound.
