Anyone own that Randy Newman 68-77 box? I’m on the fence about it.
I got the set on Record Store Day. It has Newman's first five albums, and at least three of those are classic albums. It also comes with a single exclusive to the set. imho, it's an excellent pressing.
Yeah it was on my list for RSD and no shops had it around me. I’ll probably bite on it. I have the first two on CD so I know I love the material. Thanks for the tip!
Picked up Neil Young's Decade and Dan Auerbach's Waiting on a Song for $28.07 shipped.
Can't believe I almost spent $42 on Decade for Record Store Day. Glad I held out.
Has anyone purchased the Hawkwind Space Ritual reissue? I have seen reviews and forum comments suggesting that the hard paper inner sleeves resulted in damaged LPs for many who've purchased this title.
I purchased the Space Ritual reissue from insound about a year ago. Mine arrived without any issues: flat, quiet pressing. It's Hawkwind, so it's no sonic masterpiece, of course. But I noticed no issues with the sleeves, etc.
Just saw this sale and I wish I hadn't. Just paid off my credit cards and now this!
this is an awesome set, I paid around 30 bucks previously for it:
Interludes For The Dead (180 Gram Vinyl 2 LP)
edit: forgot to add that the CD edition has more tracks but at this price, IMHO, the vinyl is worth it
Yes! Plus, you can get the CD for $17 on amazon and well worth that price to supplement the LP with the extra music.
i guess they didn't have many copies of decade. out of stock before i could check out.
disappointing that the auerbauch LP didn't seem to sell that well. it's a really, really good album. good snag.
i grabbed that some time ago. everything was just fine with my copy.
That's a stunning pressing too. I grabbed it on RSD and was blown away at the dead quiet pressing and soundstage.
Looks like vinyl's back to 60% off through Sunday.
Yes, we’ve been discussing since Thursday when it started.
Ah, missed that somehow — apologies for the redundancy. I hemmed and hawed over eight or so titles on the last sale, and then it ended before I made a purchase. In fact, the same thing happened with the previous sale. So in theory I should have a pretty good idea of what I really want now. However, since in reality I will probably delay the decision until just before the sale ends, posting here should help me to remember when time runs out this Sunday.
Anybody else receiving defective vinyl? Four out of the eight albums I bought are defective, either with a bad hump warp causing popping noises or bad scratches across atleast one song. Insound is good about returns though, great customer service. I was really surprised to get s defective Coltrane Jazz, it had both bad warp and bad non-fill throughout all four sides. Tull - This Was was so badly warped I could tell even before opening the shrink it was badly warped.
I've ordered from them a few times, quite a few titles, with no issues. This last batch a couple of weeks ago two out of five were warped. I could see on the back spine edge of both covers a slight crease running the entire length of the cover. Poor storage?
Yes, same issue for me. 5 out of 14 titles I ordered were warped.
The good thing is they have great customer service and replacements are on the way. The bad thing is that it may be a storage issue and so the odds are high that the replacements may have the same issue. Such is life in the vinyl world...
Mine was ordered weeks ago and was fine also.
The Insound site is pretty wacky. Albums seem to appear and disappear from the sale at random; a couple are still listed that haven't been in stock for months. As of now (Sunday morning) it is still displaying a "60 percent off vinyl" sale, yet prices are much higher than they were yesterday (the two-LP "Thick as a Brick" which I bought for $35 is now $54).
Yep, the sale got pulled...?
Yeah WEIRD. The banner is still up but the prices are showing as the regular 40% off. I wonder if it was set to expire at midnight and someone set it to expire at noon instead? The old AM/PM issue.... lol
and today i was going to make a purchase! oh well.
Sale prices are now back. Go figure.
