That's a great deal. It was hovering around $30 on Amazon for quite a while.
bowie - Space oddity 11.99

thanks, hard to do on mobile
I don't know that there is any way around this. Add-on status for a $3 LP that would cost mere mortals more than that amount to send via media mail.
Amazon sold me a Roger Lion that was only barely on the edge of my radar at a price that got my attention (made possible by a post here). Perhaps I wouldn't have made the purchase had they cranked in the cost of shipping (i.e. - $6+...then again, that would have been a great value as well).
The crazy thing is that I combined Roger Lion with a pre-order and they have shipped Roger Lion separately. What the heck...doesn't that defeat the purpose of the add-on??? Honestly, I'd have had zero issue if Amazon insisted on combining the shipment. That would be more than reasonable for a $3 slab of Pernice vinyl goodness.
I saw that on a $4.99 Sister Sledge CD the other day. Isn't this why I pay for Prime?
$4.99 Sister Sledge CD, doesn't the seller realize someone just died? Time to jack up the prices people.
Apologies for bringing this up in the Amazon thread, but if you have a Fry's Electronics store by you, check them out for Prince vinyl. I don't know if their prices are fixed nationwide, but my local store had some great deals on the following titles:
1999 - $13.99
Dirty Mind - $9.99 (RTI pressing - tag showed $13.99 but rang up lower)
Prince - $6.66
Plectrum Electrum - $6.96
For You - $7.61 (if I recall correctly - I didn't pick this one up)
Roger Lion update...
As (un)expected, the slab of Roger Lion vinyl arrived today. Still tripping because Amazon shipped this add-on separately from the pre-order I used to reach the $25 threshold. Then again, I can't imagine they have the capability of simply setting something aside to match it up with a later pre-order.
At any rate, this was quite the find. I recall reading about it just over a year ago when I picked up some Pernice Brothers on vinyl. Seemed there were two new Joe Pernice projects I needed to put on my proverbial want list, Roger Lion along with The New Mendicants. As much as I love all things Pernice (Pernice Brothers, Scud Mountain Boys, Chappaquiddick Skyline, Big Tobacco, solo, etc), these titles slipped from my memory.
As for the Roger Lion vinyl, it is a beautiful sounding (dead quiet) pressing which features the honey-smooth vocals we expect from Joe Pernice over some rather unique musical territory, unique in that it is markedly different from his usual style. It works really well. Here is a link about the album...

And while the Amazon price has jumped, importcds/eBay has it for about $6 & change under their current sale (25% off $60+). Highly recommend including this one as part of a larger order there.
And thanks again to Tjazz for the link alert to the original deal.
The Grateful Dead Europe 72 Vol 2 vinyl: $36.00. Great price IMO.
You would think the shipping costs on the LP would be over $3.
Thank You! This has been sitting on my wish list for a long time.
P.S. There's only one left at the time of this post.
This isn't really a discount, however I figured I should share it.
The vinyl and CD preorders for Chuck Berry's new album "Chuck" are finally up on Amazon.
Hopefully, the Amazon copy will be on the same limited edition red vinyl as that in Chuck's store.
I got around to listening to this today...It's FANTASTIC. I expected some sort of dullish chill trip hop thing. It's not that at all. It's swell ornate, orchestrated pop.
This album had flown completely under my radar. If it hadn't been for the hot deal posting, I don't know if I'd have ever noticed it. As it turns out, I would have been happy to pay normal price for it.
Bob Weir Blue Mountain 2 lp for under $8 thru warehouse deals. Go get em
Bent corners. No thanks.
I'm ok with bent corners at that price
I think "Bent Corners" is a great song.
Warning: "Cover does not play mint" although the lp probably comes close..........
And you can send me bent corners every morning
Send me bent corners by the mail
Send me bent corners and scratched vinyl
And I won't forget to put fluid in the RCM
Bob Weir arrived and it's in mint condition !
Mine too. I opted for one that did not have any condition issues listed. I think it just said "like new".
Maybe it's just me but I'd be careful on these Bob Weir albums. I had four defective copies of Blue Mountain before I gave up. There may be a reason they are in Warehouse
Side 3 was noisy on all my copies. Depending on the record, I noticed noise on the other sides, too. These were the black vinyl version.
I'm waiting for a repress.
I see what you mean. All four sides of mine are really dirty/scuffy looking. It might be the type of paper they used for the inner sleeves. Mine will be getting a VPI cleaning before I even give them a play.
