Got the new Tsjuder album "Legion Helvete" as well as Dissection's "Reinkaos" (both sealed)
what's this "più su con la vita" thing on the right?
it's a case of prosecco (Italian champagne)
More next week
Oh, and these:
More on the way
Niiiiice O.O ! Lots of LPs, wow hahaha. Kudos to the Katatonia, SotM and PL ones.
^ serious score
got my FFTC vinyl pre-order and Kvist CD (original not reissue)
I got Dissection - Storm of the Light's bane (orig. black on Nuclear Blast) a couple weeks ago. Here's some pics:
The pictures are kind of shitty but the record and sleeve are in excellent to near mint condition.
I noticed someone sold a copy of this on ebay recently for a shitton of $$$
Maybe I should consider selling it...
Also picked up a sealed copy of Ghost Reveries (Opeth) and Arcturus - Aspera Hiems Symfonia, Constellation And My Angel 2LP (already have 2 of these but it was cheap and will give it to a friend).
Really nice - Ghost Reveries: was it that sealed copy on Ebay for $125 or something?
Also, how come you buy several copies of the same LP? I could never understand why some people do that. Unless the previous one is damaged or something like that. Just wondering...
Kudos on that Dissection too. Ebay?
How is this? I saw them open up for Portishead last month and really enjoyed them.
I got Ghost Reveries and the Dissection album off discogs. I check throughout the day for items on my want list and sometimes there's a great deal. Ghost Reveries was about $60 and Dissection was about $75.
I got Cynic's "Focus" for $20 but the jackass shipped it in flimsy cardboard and the sleeve got bent up on all sides. When I emailed him, he said "Well, the record still plays fine...right?"
I have extras of the Arcturus album because some record store (actually it was Relapse's old record store - now closed) had them in a used bin for like $5/each and I knew they sold for a decent amount...so I figured I could sell them down the road. They also had, like, 10 copies of Macabre's Gloom for dirt cheap and so I picked up a couple of those.
I also bought 5 copies of Arcturus' The Sham Mirrors from the grau since they pressed 330 or so but only hand-numbered the first 300 (also got inserts). I figured I could print the insert myself but it's going to cost a fortune to get that done so I'm holding on to those. I did get the pdfs (with cut marks) from grau for the insert so if/when it's reasonable, I'll get those printed. I also have a numbered version w/insert, but the ones I got from grau were completely new/mint.
Some other steals I got were Danzig - 3 (How the Gods Kill) on vinyl for about $10. Death - Symbolic (first press) for $20. I saw that just sell on ebay for $100+ . GnR - Appetite (first press, flexi vinyl) w/banned cover - still sealed. It's got the "as featured in The Dead Pool" sticker on the front. Got that for $35.
Every once in a while I'll sell off some extras and thin out my collection.
It's an allright album, in the Mogwai vain. Sounded a lot better live. Although I assume the live songs were from their latest. That picture vinyl is their first album.
Some of the best scores this year happened in the past two weeks, and didn't cost me more than $70:
I've never seen that Black Sabbath release before, interesting. Are those Slowdive LP's bootlegs? If they're the versions I have they are but they still sound really good.
The Black Sabbath is part 2 of a compilation from the mid 70s. And yeah, those are the new boots of Souvlaki and Blue Day...and yeah they sound really great!!! I think the best score was that Ceremonial Oath cd...got it for $3...and I've seen it go on Ebay for almost $200 before...nuts!
My Zappa/Mothers collection is getting up there...If it wasn't for this record store near me, I would probably have to dish out hundreds more for these lps. Getting all these old records for a few bucks each is so killer!
Yeah, building a Zappa collection is quite an undertaking. I wanted to at one point but when the LP's were good condition they were expensive, when they were cheap they were unplayable.
I'll get there when I catch up with my patience.
