Today's haul!

1. 'Tell it to the Volcano' by Miniature Tigers .....I've never actually heard these guys...I read an excited thread about them recently and took a chance!

2. Bowie's 'The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars'...I don't have a pressing of this and went with iainoco's recommendation in the best recordings thread! Made the mistake of ordering from 'all your music' on Amazon and it cost me another £12 HMRC charges grr!

3. Peter Gabriel's 'Scratch my Back'....Great album! Worth picking up for his version of 'The Book of Love' if nothing else!!

4. Wu-Tang Clan's 'Enter the Wu-Tang'....essential east coast rap...if you're into that kind of thing!

And finally

5. Daft Punk's 'Homework' and 'Discovery'...I have the 'TRON' OST and still need to get 'Human After All' but it'll keep!

I wished I got the Tron Legacy OST before it went for silly money then disappeared.

I ended up two copies of Ziigy, the MFSL pressing and a later re-pressing.

I am still interested in the Blade Runner. Looks like the ebay listing has ended early.

I remember saying that. Now Blade Runner is over £30 already.

Yea...Vinyl99999 was selling them for £24.50 delivered on discogs...his final copy is now £29.50! Might be worth getting!

(It's *only* £875 on Amazon :rotfl: )

Don't like discog's myself but I found it £31 delivered on ebay. Is it a limited edition which is why the prices are going up already ?

I didn't know that.

It's the first proper vinyl release outside of Brazil in 1994.

I have just bought a copy for £31 of ebay. I won't be getting it until August for my Birthday. I should have bought it already, I have all of Vangelis vinyl and Blade Runner is my favourite.

Mine arrived yesterday. Didn't mind the price as I'm a daft Blade Runner fan. Must say it's an absolute work of art though.

Ordered today on white vinyl : Beastie Boys : Hot Sauce Committee Part 2. I've also got a Japanese copy of the Miami Vice soundtrack (with Obi strip) coming too.

Beastie is coming from the USA as no sellers with the white vinyl in the UK but not a bad price. Also has an extra 7" single plus digital download and iron on patch (!)

I did have a quick panic after ordering the BR making sure it was royal mail for delivery. I wanted to make sure it was sent from the UK.

Keiron, what number did you get and any pics ?

Found a pic of it coming of the production line.

Gatefold is safely encased in heavyweight plastic but you won't be disappointed :)

Thanks for the pics. I will be checking it but it will be put away until August. I want to find out what number it is.

I use plastic sleeves from my laserdiscs.

I use resealable ones from Japan (eBay) ...another alternative is poly sleeves from here - Sounds Wholesale Limited 7" AND 12" POLYTHENE RECORD SLEEVES 250G & 400G

I prefer the resealable ones if just to keep them as dust free as possible although the 450 gauge sleeves are very nice!
I use their Ebay shop. Probably exactly the same gear.

I use the heavy PVC sleeves, same as Kieron though. I find the floppy polythene ones a pain, not due to any rational reason...

I recently bought these and am very satisfied. If you make the guy an offer of £13.50, he'll probably offer you them for £14.50 delivered - that's what he did for me!

I don't mind waiting. There doesn't seem to be any on Discog now.

It's not the waiting...The story sounded a bit odd to me...if there's only 5000 copies I'm sure they all left the pressing plant at the same time!

At 9pm there were 3 copies on discogs...they shifted quickly!

Hmm. You have a point. So does it sounds like even though he listed 5, he didn't have all 5 or perhaps none of them ?
