    Gray market labels offer spotty quality at best. Most likely digital masters, sometimes even pressing ripped CDs onto vinyl! Yes, it has happened.

    Research your titles carefully. For instance, there's a NM-condition Classic Records pressing of Tijuana Moods selling for a mere $30 US.

    Don't ever spend money on DOL, WaxTime, or any of these terrible terrible brands. At that point, why not just get a CD? It'd definitely sound better! For vinyl, stick with the good names for a great experience. Otherwise, what's the point?

    Speakers Corner is not a 'Gray market label' - they are one of the best reissues labels in the business. They use top tapes, engineers, and equipment.
    And they are all analog.

    I was referring to the labels mentioned at the bottom ; DOL, WaxTime. Did you read the OP?

    I did.
    I did not pick that up in your post - no worries.
    Cheers.

    I heard the Elton John Yellow Brick Road LP from the 90s is very good. Too bad it costs like $200 or something. For things like that i don't see the worth personally.

  6. It is very good, but I understand the price of entry for this OOP title can be a bit much for many. I'd love a copy of the Mofi UHQR of DSOTM, but the price is just not worth it for me.
