I was out in Doylestown, PA earlier to visit my daughter and her new puppy, and stopped at Siren Records after leaving her apartment. Picked up the Life Aquatic soundtrack since I finally looked at the tracklist and realized it's Bowie!

Well, it's two by Bowie, and a slew of Seu Jorge covers of Bowie. Still, it's great!

My Little Feat came in today from my Yellow Dog orders, but they sold out soon after I made my purchase.

Seems to be the only RSD release I bought that is going for more than I paid on Discogs.

I definitely should have waited on some albums I picked up…entered them in discogs as they arrived and nearly every one was significantly cheaper on discogs or stores had sales later. Must be hard /frustrating for shops to try to gauge interest in titles.

Black Friday is always weird, because there is so much other non-vinyl stuff getting released and deals people are chasing. There is usually only one or 2 titles tops that really go anywhere crazy with the prices afterward. The rest just drop. I do like supporting the indie shops, though, regardless.

never really thought about the black friday aspect but totally makes sense. and i'm glad that shops are still doing some online sales since i can order from local shops even if they aren't local to me.

If anyone is looking for a seasonally appropriate sleeper, I highly recommend The Staple Singers release. All analog, KG cut, pressed at Memphis and it’s one of the best holiday albums of all time

View attachment 119387
That’s from the discogs page


Did no one here grab a copy in a store to check?


While the blurb on the RSD still has KG mentioned, this in fact is a Jeff Powell cut as I just entered the runouts to Discogs.

I could see them needing to re-cut it again or plans w/ KG fell through. Does anyone have an in with Craft, I'm curious on the mix up.


I don't see any complaints about the sound either way....The Wrens is another issue - the comments on the Discogs page isn't too good.

my copy was dirty as fuck but after giving it a quick wet clean it sounded much better. Still not perfect but also not necessarily bad either. It’s hard to see the debris on colored wax sometimes but a quick wash did help quite a bit.

Just sounds like a simple mixup to me. KG does a lot of the craft stuff so someone must have mixed it up. I hadn't seen the KG description which is why i was surprised that someone mentioned it being a KG cut originally. I had always seen Jeff Powell.

Same here, if I had waited a few days I coulda saved like $10 on John Legend. I didnt think demand would be so low.

I ran by my local on Sunday since I hadn't bothered on BF and they had nearly their entire stock still. Except of course the one album that I still really want to grab. The other two I wanted there, were each $20 higher than anywhere I'd seen online. No idea what they're thinking but it's really burning me out on wanting to support them.
