    ^^^ Got it, user error on my part. The link shows the higher prices with fine print right below reflecting the lower price link.

    How was your Orbison box set? I’m on my second one and the first two discs on both of them are horribly scuffed.

    1st one was scuffed and no other in stock so I got my money back.

    I’m not very hopeful that number 3 will be any better. I’m shocked that they haven’t offered a partial refund yet. :cheers:

    I’m just trying to remind myself why I stopped buying vinyl. This kind of reissue helps:D:cheers:

    You took the words right out of my mouth. I have been trying to dip my toe back into buying new vinyl these days but am finding that the quality of today's vinyl is on the whole, worse than back in the early 80's when I gave up on it. Clicks and pops abound, as is scuffing and non fill issues. A lot of my old vinyl sounds better than the stuff being pumped out today. So much for technology etc. improving vinyl production. When I go back to my well curated mastered digital collection of cds, sacds, dvd-a's and blu-ray audios, I keep thinking STOP, get a grip on yourself. Time to get back to reality.

    I really think it depends on the titles that you're buying. There certain manufacturers or labels that are bad in general. But there are others that are excellent. in fact, I would go as far as saying that a lot of the new vinyl actually is better than the stuff that was released in the past. In terms of mastering and production.
     
  17. Of benefit to Canadians only as it's about $25-$40 cheaper than ordering direct from Mofi or Music Direct and others.

    MFSL 1-Step - Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble - Texas Flood - CAN$183.70
    MFSL 1-Step - Bill Evans - Portrait in Jazz - CAN$183.70

    For those close to the border, a member is selling this one in the Classifieds for $115 shipping included which is about 30$ cheaper.

  19. True, and I saw that as well. However, this is not about deals from classifieds.

    True but it doesn't hurt to mention it either. If I were interested in this title but wouldn't be aware of this, saving 30$ would be quite appealing to me. Not everyone checks the Classifieds regularly.
