  • You guys ever had an issue where you closed a credit card account and now some vendor issues you a refund attributed to that credit card. Would that get processed some other way?

    Perhaps the vendor can reverse the credit and issue you a check? Or call the credit card company and see what they recommend...they likely have the credit and can issue a check as well.

    This has happened to be w/ Chase. It showed as a credit on my chase card and they cut me a check for the positive balance.
    Where to start with Fela? I love the few albums I've heard over the years but never gone deeper. Album/compilations/collabs/pressing recommendations etc.appreciated. Will they ever reissue the box Questlove curated?
    So I've seen this chair in a few insta posts now so I tried to find out what it is. Looks like it would be nice and cozy, make a nice addition to the listening space..wait a minute WTF..8000€!!?!! :|

    You are looking it it wrong. It’s €4000 per butt cheek. Sounds cheaper that way.

    @djdavedk yes probably a knockoff. you can typically tell because the legit ones have no visible hardware. You can't see any screws or anything. i have a 70's knockoff but its just not very comfy anymore. By the time I pay to get it refoamed + reupholstered, probably not worth it!

    I rummaged 2 Herman Miller/Eames molded plastic chairs from my old Uni dept when they were to dispose them. Seriously! Here's a pic of the model. How do I upload my own pics in these threads? Mine have more wear but they're really great.

    3 for 2? More like 15 for 10...I'm in so much trouble
    Regarding Mingus Ah Um, do you guys recommend the redux or is there a great sounding non deluxe pressing around?
    Oh man I'm really happy to have found out about Fontaines DC but I'm also really disappointed to have found out about them only now. Would you guys recommend chasing a coloured pressing or the 2LP for Hero's Death?

    Great band! I have the stormy blue and it sounds great. I've heard really good things on here about the 2x45 version as well. The limited pressings are good, but's really up to you whether it's worth it to get a collectible version or not.

    I'll say this though: I have a 1st pressing of the first LP on translucent yellow and that one is noisy and clicky. Though I'm not sure if I just got unlucky with a mediocre copy.

    Just grabbed a stormy blue, hope it gets fulfilled. If not I'll look out for the 2LP I think.

    I'm assuming there's no good sounding pressing of Kanye's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy out there right? Almost 10 years old and was hoping for a good anniversary edition that was remastered.
    What are the recommendations for good rage against the machine pressings without needing to spend much?
    Got caught playing a game of chicken with an eBay seller - lowballed an offer which they accepted, then decided to try going even lower on a second item which they also accepted - I proceeded to do this a few more times.....looks like I just bought 7 records :|
    Has anyone got the Definitely Maybe 25 Silver Pressing and care to comment on sound / mastering quality? @Joe Mac ?

    I have the 2014 on black which means 20th, so if it's the same master then I guess I'll only be "upgrading" on colour. That's a shame, Ive heard the OG is the only way to go if you want no compression.

    The OG has no compression? Are you sure? They went through 2 sessions that were rejected because the music sounded “weedy” in comparison to their big love sound. They brought Owen Morris in for the third session and he beefed up the sound by brick walling the shit out of the whole thing while mixing. Everyone loved it. The 90s and cocaine 🙄. I’d thought that affected all vinyl issues, even the OG.

    I thought I had read somewhere that the original creation pressing was good. I can't find that anymore but if they're all equal (equally bad) I'm happy not have to spend big on the OG.
    I updated my excel list (I don't recommend doing this) and it looks like I added 75 records this year so far (don't ask how much I've spent). I really think it's 25 more than I should have. What's a sustainable number/goal?
    Anyone have info on the Beatles Mono represses from Merchbar? Same 2014 mix? Any chance of a boxset repress?

    I just checked and the description on UDiscover is identical to the description of the 2014 Mono presses. Same engineers and whatnot so these have to be a repress. I can't find any mention anywhere of a mono box re press however...

    I'm choked in a way because I paid 60€ for Sgt Peppers about 6 months ago. It's still sitting sealed (don't ask me why). I am tempted to pick up Beatles for sale and help though, but if it is a wide pressing I'd rather wait for Amazon or local store

    Yeah I hear ya. I have the deluxe 2 LP Peppers, and Deluxe 4 LP White. But those are both stereo. I'd probably go in for the box if it's identical to the 2014...

    Could those of you who own WoD - Lost in the dream coloured variants, tell me if your copy has a heavy weight jacket?

    Curious if the Newbury Comics one will come with a heavy weight jacket like my purple SC edition.
