    A couple of goodies I spotted:

    'The Globeflower Masters' - this is one of those modern projects where cool guys recreate cool 1960's sounds - one of the players is the guy from Blue States, who I enjoy a lot. $9.52.
    https://www.amazon.com/Globeflower-Masters-Vol-1/dp/B097VRFZZ

    Lazerbreak - Cameron - $11.68 - Discogs shows this as a hip hop release, because I guess the guy produced music for Lizzo. But, it's really more of a new age / ambient/ soundtrack thing, worth investigating, IMO.
    https://www.amazon.com/Cameron-LP-Lazerbeak/dp/B09M794RM2

    Ross Goldstein - Chutes & Ladders - I bought this a few weeks ago, I see they have 1 in stock now. This is a modern mellotron album, very obscure I think. $11.41. Listen on Bandcamp.
    https://www.amazon.com/Chutes-Ladders-Ross-Goldstein/dp/B09BKTH7NL
    Chutes and Ladders, by Ross Goldstein

    Martha Scanlan - River And The Light - traditional folk sound with ambient / drone / eerie backing - Jon Neufeld of Black Prairie does the music. $10.62
    https://www.amazon.com/River-Light-Martha-Scanlan/dp/B099WG1NBS

    Silence - Electric Meditations - heavy Japanese psychedelic rock on Drag City - $11.02
    https://www.amazon.com/Electric-Meditations-Silence/dp/B08HRRD7QD

    Steep Canyon Rangers - Arm in Arm - this was really cheap last summer - today on offer is the Colored Vinyl version, different from last year, for $11.38 ..

    Yes, my experiences with them have been great. In fact, I was just able to get the RSD Ramones box from them cheaper than anywhere else. Really good online seller, in my opinion. Would recommend without hesitation.

    Still one copy of this left, price went back down, from $29.99 to $11.28. Thought about it, but with $6.00 for shipping, not going to pull the trigger on it. Can't think of anything else right now to pair with it to hit the free shipping threshold. It's up for grabs for anyone else!

    I am getting very close to going back to CDs. I have been having some crappy luck with vinyl these days and I recently got a puppy who is preventing me from playing any vinyl on my main listening area.

    Still only $22.53, and a bargain compared to the $40 version at Acoustic Sounds. I picked this up a week ago and can confirm it's the QRP, 180g, glossy tip-on jacket version. https://smile.amazon.com/Saxophone-Colossus-LP-Sonny-Rollins/dp/B06Y5P4YBM

    I bought two half speeds...sticky fingers and exile. Both are flat and quiet. However, the mastering itself is nothing special at all...not an audiophile experience. In the case of sticky fingers, i think it sounds horrible. I would expect similar results from Dirty Work.

    The Wild Feathers are probably my favorite alt.country rock band these days (at least until I hear that new Wilco album, that's got me curious). Clear, clean vocals with lots of harmonies. Perhaps like the early Eagles?

    Their latest album is Alvarado - new all-time-low price on Amazon at $16.27 Prime.

    ==========================
    Maybe too wimpy for this group? Maybe not ... Richard Carpenter performs solo piano versions of Carpenters' hits (and also The Rainbow Connection from The Muppets Movie, which I have always enjoyed.) Mastered by Bernie Grundman. $13.58 Amazon Prime.

    as a serious band fan i've always found this album to be extremely uninspired. just blah from start to finish, really. but i might pay $40 for this "ultimate experience" if it keeps dropping.

    I have it. Uninspired is a good term for this album. I have the box and while its the new mix, it sounds waaaaaaay more clear to me than the 3-4 muddy pressings ive come across before. worth it at this price.

    Horrible? I really wish people would tone down the language to a more realistic level. I don't own this record, so I'm not saying it's not good, but horrible is the sound of that 45 I had as a kid that got kicked around the floor outside of its sleeve and damaged to the point that the music was secondary to the noise. That's what "sounds horrible" is. I doubt your Sticky Fingers sounds like that.

    Yeah, its horrible. You hype something as "half speed mastered," flirting with the audiophile market, and you put out sticky fingers that doesn't sound very good at all, you get a "horrible." You want more specific language.....its muddy, undefined and has a poor soundstage.

    At the risk of being offended, check out this video, this guy agrees that its horrible:
