This is maybe not too recent an acquisition but what a set!
Took awhile to actually find a sealed set at a fair price but very happy I did.
Great band I saw live support for Deftones and imho, they blew them off the stage!
I’ve gone from 0 LPs this summer to about 120 today and still counting.
Therefore my recommendations for on-line stores.
Acoustic Sounds for new and for their own label re-issues. Dusty Groove for new but mostly used at a good price and accurate grading. VinylMePlease, very boutique and I don’t care for the genres, but the product is top notch. Sams Records independent boutique French pressings, some of which one can find at Acoustic Sounds. Amazon which has BlueNote cheaper than the BlueNote site, but doesn’t always pack safely.
And, of course Discogs.
I have a feeling that alongside the pet pics and wine threads, this is going to be a new favourite hangout for me.
I only came back to vinyl a few short months before the pandemic bit. I had no old collection to resurrect (I’ve told the story of my acrimonious split from a girlfriend back in the early 90s which resulted in my collection getting destroyed). Since I got the first TT in 30 years (a Rega P3), not only have I traded-up to a MoFi Ultradeck and upgraded the cartridge and the phono stage further, but I seem to be nudging 400 titles in just over 2 years. I’m so glad Mrs Tel is along for the vinyl ride; she’s amazing at crate diving too.
My last vinyl purchase was when I was on holiday in France and bought Geogaddi by Boards of Canada, in about 1998.
Once I retire I’ll fire my turntable up in my office. Meanwhile my vinyl is just part of the furniture.
