FOBO (Fear of Blowing Out)
Maybe my story will help you. I initially passed on the newer clear MOV version of Slowdive - Pygmalion. Meh, no big deal. Figured I would never play it.
Then i recently got it from the library (yes, my local library had the new reissue). The jacket is really nice and the record sounded good. So of course i got it in my head that now I NEED it, but it's no longer easily available. So I go on discogs and find a copy, but it's too expensive, $48 + shipping. Pass.
A week later I look again, and the same seller dropped the price to $35. OK now I have to buy it. $44 with tax and shipping Blah. Order it anyway!
Record arrives, and not really the fault of the seller, but the jacket is somewhat dinged up, and the record has a minor edge warp. Also a bit noisy in the quiet parts, at least on headphones. The library copy was better.
Buyer's regret kicks in. Ugh.
when they fill the bin with MOV titles that are well-reviewed i just grab them. even if i'm not yet familiar with the release. this last round yielded some awesome discoveries. at $7-$8 a piece i just take the damn risk.
07-11 Black Francis $32.64 Deep Discount.
My problem with the Blowout Bin: I consistently find items that I only vaguely want. Because I don't have any self control, I buy them right away. And then I have a ridiculous amount of regret for buying something that I only vaguely wanted in the first place and am running out of storage space. UGH.
Same. I look at all the blowout vinyl that I still have sealed, and wonder why I bought them! But there are a few that are in regular rotation… I just have to learn to control myself.
what would you recommend from the last round? looking to discover new stuff.
most of what i grabbed i did share here, but almost all of it is gone now
looks like two are still around though:
BJ Ward - Vocal Ease
B.J. Ward Vocal Ease [Limited 180-Gram Silver Colored Vinyl [Import] on DeepDiscount
Originals of this are very rare, so this is a cool reissue for anyone interested.
The Men They Couldn't Hang - Silver Town
The Men They Couldn't Hang Silver Town [Limited Gatefold, 180-Gram Flaming Orange Colored Vinyl] [Import] on DeepDiscount
Really good celtic rock/folk. Not quite Pogues, but still good.
This was me the other night. I filled the cart and, thankfully, emptied it for that very reason. “Do I REALLY want that Alanis Morrisette album?” Not really.
I just came here to post this as well. Picked it up today.
Popmarket has the same item for 10% off plus no shipping cost. Black Francis 07-11 [Limited Edition 9CD Boxset With Signed Print] [Import] on PopMarket ""
Yeah one thing i've noticed is that if you want a record this company sells, check all their shops, including ebay, deepdiscount, discogs, popmarket. it's all the same company and they don't always synchronize the prices. i grabbed the new Engineers reissue (which is fantastic) for cheaper on deepdiscount than ebay.
New 10% off code, this one requires a minimum purchase of $40:
Meh, but hope this is useful and Happy Shopping everyone!
Thanks! Under $80 shipped was good enough for me to finally bite on Neil Young Archives Volume II. I am still disappointed that they didn't go the Blu-Ray high-resolution route like with Volume I, but $8 per disc (10 disc box) is reasonable.
Some new titles have been added to the bin today, including Jack White's last album.
thanks, I grabbed these 5, Adele is in there as well.. $10 each shipped was a nice deal... (with HAMMERHEAD)
thanks for posting!

Seeing a Roxette box set of some kind as well.
Anchoress Art Of Losing on DeepDiscount
The Anchoress - Art of Losing vinyl for $13.25. This has long been on my list. Got it from the bin with four other items for less than the vinyl alone on Amazon. I’ll call that a score!
Terrific Celtic rock/folk album. That said, originals are not expensive and the Music On Vinyl issue is digitally sourced.
The latest Nas album from March of this year is in the Bin too:
Nas King's Disease II on DeepDiscount
This one is calling my name. Can anyone speak to how it sounds? I love this album and don't have it yet.
DD has the Michael Jackson Thriller one step for around $45 today...got an order in, then the price changed. PopMarket had it for $41 and now it disappeared too.
Wow! Hope you land it and they don’t cancel that on you! Report back with results please…
don't have high hopes since they have cancelled acci-deals in the past for me...but we'll find out in november!
