      B/w @Mather and I we could start our own secondhand store of warped and scratched vinyl. He handles north of the Border, I handle south.

        Yes this is a necessity to handle the VMP unboxing stages of grief. Excitement, apprehension, fear, initial relief, creeping dread, horrible horrible realization, resignation, enjoyment.

        I'm so tempted to come out for this but I'll be flying from SF to see Jason Isbell at Red Rocks in September, I don't think I can justify another midweek trip for a show.

        The National and Arcade Fire are both on my list so I won't be able to grab those. But I'll check on the others when my store posts their list. I have a feeling the people who show up early at my store will be all over RATM though.

        @craigdino Southwest has been more expensive lately. I prefer Love Field. The same ticket is a $40 more but I do like the faster access. I told my wife I had to go if The National or Ryan Adams played RR. RA is there when we're on vacation. Welp...The National it is

        I know. They've been very good. But honestly, since December. I think I've had something like 15 records replaced. It gets to a point whether or not it's justified that I start feeling bad.

        @Mather My brother really wanted to go Toronto for his bachelor party so who was I to say no as the best man? I used to travel a lot to Canada for work, but surprisingly only through Toronto so I am excited to check out the city. Moment of silence for my wallet tho.

        The nightlife here is second to none but yeah... I'll pour one out for your wallet tonight. When you're here maybe check out Sonic Boom Music. Record prices here are such that it's probably not worth it for you to buy much but the store is pretty cool.

      Do any records not come with some sort of warping anymore? I feel like every record I get lately has some kind of warp, even if minor

        I would own a vinyl flat if it didn't cost half a trillion dollars to ship one north of the border. I have no idea how they aren't sold in Canada...

        I've got two recently arrived records under a heavy stack of books to correct edge warps. I've shifted to CDs for new releases rather than vinyl. I buy a lot of used vinyl though.

        My first copy had a good scratch on Side A and all sorts of paper fibres embedded in Side C. And my second has a Warp of Disc 1. Still debating whether I ask for a third...

        Yeah I was hoping to make one good set out of the two... My clamp can't do anything with it, it's playable but I can't help but think of the inner groove distortion it's causing... I feel bad asking for a third but... I kinda feel like its justified especially if many others are having the warp issue...

      Anyone have either or both of the Newbury Exclusives for Outkast (Southerplaya and ATLiens) and can attest to their sound quality?

        I have both. Neither is great but neither is terrible either. I don't think they are any worse than any other version you might find.

        Whatever you think is the most reasonable packaging for it's value. When I traded for the most valuable record in my collection you're damn right I went overboard on the packaging of what I sent in the other direction.

        The couple times I've gotten records that were over $40--which I consider higher value, I've gotten them in standard mailers with record out side of sleeve (in a disc keeper or equivalent) with a piece or two of small bubble bubble wrap plus an extra piece of cardboard. I think it would also be acceptable in the larger box with extra cardboard and bubble wrap with disc out side of sleeve.

        If you’re paying good money for a record, the seller should adhere to what you ask. When I bought The Social Network, I asked for records outside the sleeve, high quality sleeves for the LPs, oversized box with bubble wrap and taped up. Signature on delivery, too. It’s a high value piece. Needs to be perfect. :)
