I recently scored a personal grail on ebay that was graded "Goldmine VG++". I paid more than I usually do ($59), but less than the usual going rate. ($70-100) The record is Lush's Split BTW, UK release MPO pressing 1994. When it arrived, the cover is as described but the LP has a bunch of tiny hairlines, two rather visible small scuffs and a spot of embedded debris. Playthrough has crackle at the start of each side and between each song which thankfully clears up for the most part during the music but not quite always. Side 2 is less affected but still some. When fully clear the music approaches VG++ quality but goes right back to VG between tracks or in quiet parts. What do you guys do when this happens, but you'd like to keep the LP? I've had it happen once before on a much cheaper purchase and the seller generously offered me a partial refund. I hate to eat the whole cost, but admittedly I did get an okay deal. It's just that I paid for and expected a VG++ copy after years of waiting and got...not quite that.
