    I don't think that's the reason. My copy was perfect as well.
    A nice slab of vinyl.

    I got a warped one too, though it sounds good. And, the label on the B side wasn't done correctly and has air bubbles all over it.

    I'm just going to let it sit under a stack of records for a day or two and see if I can at least fix the warp.

    Unfortunately it's not possible to fix a warp with just pressure; it requires heat and pressure. The new 180 gram records are to blame for the high percentage of new warped records. I don't ever recall buying a warped record back in the old days. Not once.

    I bought plenty of warped/flawed pressings back in the day. Pretty much why I stopped buying LOs once I got a CD player.

    Huh? Warped records existed in plenty back in the 1960s, '70s, and '80s. If anything, the speed and volume at which LPs used to be made contributed to both warped and noisy records. Back in the old days, one third to one half of the records I bought were defective. Now it's one tenth.

    You've got to be kidding. I worked in a record store back in the day and if we sold the noisy junk that gets passed off as quality today it would have all come back. :cheers:

    Tonto's Expanding Head Band - Zero Time / CD (Real Gone Music) 2013 / OOP!!!

    If you like electronic music than this CD is for you. If the Amazon seller entered his product in correctly than this is the OOP 2013 Real Gone Music CD of the first album by Tonto's Expanding Head Band - "Zero Time" and the condition is listed as NEW and is at retail price ($12.99 + $3.99 shipping), not collectors black market prices which some have paid for this gem. Prior to purchasing you may want to contact the seller to make sure you're getting the Real Gone Music version and not the pirate CD issue on Prog Temple. All CD versions of this album are long OOP. This CD sounds fantastic and was remastered by Malcolm Cecil from the original tapes himself with great commentary by him and the liner notes compiled by Richie Unterberger and some neat photos of T.O.N.T.O., Malcolm Cecil and Robert Margouleff:

    Thanks, ordered. Since its two weeks from release I did no rush shipping for the digital credit. A no harm experiment in how close to release date I receive a pre order. The credit will be nice for a PPV viewing or Kindle purchase.
