    Mine arrived packed only in the dreaded thin plastic envelope, so the corners were softened up, though no serious damage. I've never received a record from Amazon that wasn't in a cardboard LP box, but I guess I couldn't keep my virginity forever.

    That’s strange. My copy was pre-packed by the label in a LP mailer. Amazon also placed it in one of their cardboard boxes with air pillows, which hasn’t happened in a few years.

    I just realized something.
    Whenever I buy a record from Amazon on sale with a price below $20, like the recent deal, Two Headed Freap from Blue Note Classic, or the Bevis Frond, it always arrives in this flimsy plastic envelop with absolutely no other protection.
    Whenever I buy a record which is not on sale with a list price let's say between $25-40 it always arrives in the appropriate LP mailer, and sometimes they put it inside an additional box with air pillows.

    I wonder if these cheap bastards decide what packaging to put the record in based on the price.

    If I have learned anything about Amazon it's that there is near zero consistency or reason with there packaging for vinyl.. Every time I think I figured something out or see a pattern it's broken soon after.. Outside of stuff that's given to amazon in well protected boxes already like most boxsets or the more expensive albums it's simply a hail mary and you just have to hope for the best! The last album I got in a plastic bag was $40ish I believe and I didn't even try for a replacement. I buy probably 70-80% less vinyl from Amazon then I did 2-3+ years ago so at least when things do come damaged it's not nearly as often anymore. I live in a slightly rural area so I still use them for a bunch of other stuff where it doesn't matter if it's not packaged great at least.

    If you do get a majority in mailers still you should celebrate it and embrace all the deals you can get with minimal headaches.

    I try to purchase more that one LP at a time, with the assumption being that they'll use a box for two or more. This was a rare case when I only bought one, and it didn't turn out well. It might just be coincidence but in my mind it reinforces my bias.

    Does your copy has no-fill on side 2? Mine is full of no-fill noise on tracks 2 and 3 on side 2.

    I ordered Bitches Brew ($20.39+tax) a couple weeks ago and finally received it. It was loose in the box, banging around, with a crease to the cover. No record mailer, just a few sheets of packing paper, no air pillows. It's going back. They do this to themselves!

  14. I don’t think I’ve ever ordered more than one LP at a time from Amazon, over the last few years I’d say 9 times out of 10 they come in either an LP mailer or a larger box. Guessing it’s all down to whatever fulfillment center processes your order.

    I know it is probably random based on who is processing your order.
    I buy maybe one or two records per week from Amazon maybe more if I find a good deal.
    For the last two years, they all have arrived packaged in an LP mailer.
    I have gotten all my Tone Poets and Classic BN from them and the THF was the first that arrived without a mailer, without even a box.
    It goes back anyways because of the non-fill on side 2.

    What’s wrong with it that you’re sending it back?
