    I looked at about a dozen or so newer and older TPs and a couple/few MMJs. None of mine have the gatefold splits.

    very disappointing. I think ill just keep goinf with the 4mil dual pockets on gatefolds. A pricey affair but the quality is just perfect. Probably dont want to cheap out on $50+ records...

    Have you seen it tear anywhere other than where the record makes contact with the paper? I haven’t, myself.

    It is a common occurrence with gatefold albums. Never been much of a concern for me. You may get the same problem on the next copy if you return it. But if it bothers you by all means "send it back." As Billy Crystal used to opine on Saturday Night Live

    The only time I've had a damaged cover was along the top edge where the lp cut through the cover and left a gash a couple inches long. This was because there was no lp mailer, just the album bouncing inside an Amazon box & w/o any of those air pillows inside. Can't imagine how the spine would get damaged unless the lp cut through the end somehow.
    EDIT: I see the comments about paper tearing on inside of seam. I've got most of the TP and haven't had that occur yet.

    Anticipating the Tone Poet "Lighthouse" set, I called my local record store and inquired, "Do you have Lee Morgan in a box? You better let him out!" I'm easily amused.

    If you’re in Vancouver, Neptoon sells the TPs for $32 each. You might check if they have them.

    Audiopile on Commercial as well carries a good number of Tone Poets.

    Is it actually a Tone Poet?

    i don’t think so. Looks like it’s its own thing.

    It looks like the picture of Lee Morgan from the cover to The Rajah.

    It is the Tone Poet.

    I started looking at all these boxes of records (my shelves overfloweth) and there are a lot of boxes where the artist's face is peeking through the handle. I thought about doing a photo montage: a cross between characters popping out of boxes like on the "Laugh-In" show and Jackie Gleason's ill-fated 1961 television program, "You're in the Picture." Zoom meets "The Brady Bunch" opener.

    Something like Rutherford Chang's record shop in Soho, "We Buy White Albums." My concept would be a stack of artists peeking through the open handles of white album boxes at each other.

    Here's a photo of a diagonally adjacent box with Ahmad Jamal looking down from his piano at Lee Morgan. It's weird, really -- all these artists trapped in boxes and looking around the room at each other.


    Here's a display wall at "We Buy White Albums." These are all White Album jackets in various states of condition, depreciation, and embellishment. I think it's fantastic!


    If you don't know about "We Buy White Albums," I think it is the greatest thing since Andy Warhol. Helter Skelter! A Record Store that Only Stocks the White Album

    Listening to the old Ron McMaster mastered CD of this tune, I hear a bit of mic overload in Chambers' bass playing starting at around the 2:20 mark. The drummer is playing with brushes (metal brushes) and the cymbal sounds like a sizzle and the rivets popping around do sound different but I don't hear this as unusual. Maybe what you're hearing is a brush hitting a sizzle cymbal?

    While I’m sure Yoko would approve of the clever conceptual project of We Buy White Albums, I find it painful to look at all of those trashed and destroyed copies of the album.

    $32 here in Toronto. If you're paying $40++, find somewhere else to buy your records.

    I certainly wouldn't want to own a copy that a kid from 50+ years ago drew a flower on, but I have no problem with it conceptually.

    Where are you buying them for $32 in Toronto? I rarely seem them for less than $37-38.

    You can find this distortion on othe RVG recordings. Supposedly from mic bleed from cymbal. I was listening to MMJ Something Else and it’s on that recording too.

    The Rajah finally arrived at my doorstep today. This is one hell of a release!
