    That's not the problem. It's WaxTime. Yuck. Good price but I'd never buy anything from WT.

    I think this qualifies as a good deal on eBay.

    Our friends at Freakbeat (most excellent LA-area record store) are selling a brand new album by none other than DRAMARAMA.

    DRAMARAMA Color TV SEALED (CD 2020 Pasadena) John Easdale 1st NEW CD in 15 years | eBay

    $12.99 shipped. I ordered one on Friday and got it today. What a pleasant surprise that I didn't see coming, the first album in 15 years by the band which brought us the seminal Anything, Anything (I'll Give You). Frankly, these guys have never made a stinker album and always put on a blistering live set.

    Spinning this new album for the first time right now. Stone cold classic Dramarama. I'm going to love this album all summer long and beyond. There are three songs (Swamp Song, What's Your Sign & It's Only Money) which are rescued from a rare John Easdale solo CD that saw no wide release (an early version of his Bright Side solo album with a markedly different track listing). Sounds like new recordings to me. All terrific songs, glad to see them get the attention they deserve. I cannot believe how excellent John's voice is. Tell me these songs were recorded in 1989 and I'd totally believe you.

    These days, no band is going to sell tons of albums but $12.99 shipped is a small price to pay to throw Freakbeat a solid and support a band that hasn't missed a beat in 35+ years, not to mention having provided us with a consistent contender in KROQ's top songs of all time.

    There is another copy of this long OOP CD for sale that does not come up very often. The price is higher but it is still about the same as the retail price and the shipping is free. The condition of the CD is very good and it has the two bonus tracks:

    Thanks! Those Michaels are the best sounding digital version. I made a "best offer". Only concern is I show the set as 2015; the seller states 2018.

    They accepted a $30 (+ tax, grr) best offer on the Lee Michaels catalog. It appears to be the record company selling direct. Assuming this is the same master as the 2015, it is totally a smoking deal. Interesting: I already had this set as files. Only bought the discs because of the great price. The files metadata shows them as 2015. Discogs shows these as 2016. Ebay shows them as 2018. Per Discogs mastered by Bill Inglott.

    Ha...I tried $26 and got a counteroffer of $31. So YMMV.

    The last two Lee Michael re-issues might have been 2018. Tailface and Nice Day for Something.

    I bought the Manifesto Buckley also. I'm only slightly familiar with him (I have a 2 cd best of & the Woodstock box) but for a little over $4 a cd..........
  13. Deluxe Reissue of highly regarded vintage analogue electronic album which Elusive Disc, Amazon and others sell at $39.99! Double LP pressed at Gotta Groove in Cleveland, OH. Comes with eight-page booklet and three bonus tracks. This was originally a cassette-only release and the original cassette sells for $100+ when it turns up.

    I love this record and it reminds me of Pink Floyd's more experimental "space" rock. Very melodic and beautiful, but can also get wild. I think fans of 1970s analog electronic music and the "Berlin-School" will want this. Reissued by Lion Productions. One of the best labels around for rare psych, prog and experimental rarities. Highly recommended!

    This is a nice rarity for anyone into the '70s Berlin school of synth music. Reminiscent of TD at times, mainly in the sequencer sounds, but with a different kind of overall effect.

    My fav LM album is "Lee Michaels" (blue album with Stormy Monday). It was quite scratched. Seller/manufacturer agreed to send a replacement on 10/1. On 10/7 in response to my email, he said he had run out & had mailed it on 10/7. As of 10/10, I have not gotten a text or email from the USPS informing me that it's on the way. (I'm signed up for USPS notifications for all shipments to my home; also UPS & Fed EX). Also nothing more from the seller. Will write again late next week if it hasn't arrived. Will put in a complain around month's end with with ebay if needed. Just a warning for you all.

    If the seller had just given me an honest date, I would be so angry.

    The problem is for the Michaels set & 2 of the Buckley's Manifesto uses a very scratchy cardboard sleeve with no inner sleeve. Seller & manufacturer are the same person.

    I always add the Japanese sleeves when I first open the cd's. My others were ok. I'm just pissed because it had to be my favorite cd that was f'd up, & I do feel like the seller/manufacturer is being either flakey or dishonest.

    BEWARE of seller "subrinkh_22"

    I'm currently getting ripped off by a an obvious criminal (literally) on ebay & they still won't do anything until Saturday; & told me not to expect a refund until 11/2. While they keep letting this slime rip off all of his customers. He had 100% fb when I placed my order. He's received 12 negs in the last week including mine. He uploads fake tracking numbers. And ebay doesn't seem to care; at least their cs in Asia doesn't........ I would think ebay would want to get rid of this guy yesterday; the money is likely going to come out of ebay's bank account.

    Thanks for letting me rant.

    That's my opinion, & really only 3 worthwhile singles at that. This set (in hi-res) also doesn't have real good dynamics (I think it was a 9)
