pole - 1, 2, and 3.  the only unsealed vinyl i own, i already had the cd's and found these in a record store one day.  i'll never open them most likely.

I just opened 2 records to see if they were resealed. blink.gif No scratches but i can't really tell. Anyhow, they were nothing to brag about, only paid like 50 cents for each.

To me there's nothing nicer sounding than a new record. Why not keep them till you have the right equipment to record them. Plus, all those new CDs that advertise they're from the master copy is kind of the new thing anyway, right? So why not dream of finding a sealed original master copy of a 1st pressing record. My Pink Floyd The Wall, which appears to be first pressing and, as far as I read on wiki, was sort of hurried to print by the record company. I would love to direct compare it to a CD sometime but haven't got around to buying a cd copy, just to see what they've edited. But when Nick Mason hits those toms on "In The Flesh,"  you notice right away that vinyl does their music plenty of justice.

We should list what we have; maybe if the response is adquate, start another thread for trading in For Sale / Trade Forums ... {^..~} ... I'll start:

 

-- Woody Shaw: Stepping Stones, Live At The Village Vanguard (1978)

-- Heatwave: Too Hot To Handle (1976)

-- Steely Dan: Aja (early, limited edition pressing) (1977)

-- Curtis Mayfield: Got To Find A Way (1974)

-- Seals & Crofts: Greatest Hits (1975)

 

How do i know if my Steely Dan AJA record from 1977 is an early limited edition pressing?

 

(Record info for all: I think I read it on an album cover, but if you use the same record player on an album its whole live, then it is supposed to last much longer.)

The only limited edition that I know of are the MFSL vinyl Steely Dan Aja. I still have my vinyl copy though I don't have a turntable. I still have a collection of MFSL and Nautilus vinyls. I have one UHQR MFSL, Cat Stevens Tea For The Tillerman, my copy is 3907 out of 5000, that's what the certificate says.

 

Though not sealed anymore, I have MFSL Led Zep II, Beatles White album, Pink Floyd's DSOTM, and others. I also have a British Pink Floyd DSOTM complete with posters and stickers. This album was released on March 1st, 1973, it will be 40 years old soon.

Well happy birthday to your albumbiggrin.gif. I didn't even know about half speed records until reading this post. I do think that limited edition 1977 Steely Dan album could have been MFSL because MFSL started in 1977. Mine is a regular album then.

 

If I could say one thing about vinyl is that I hear a lot of people say they can't stand all the clicks and pops, but for most of my records it seems like they mostly only pop and click when there's no music playing or between tracks. Then when the music starts i don't hear or notice them as much.

 

Anyway, you should get a turntable again. Then tell us about all that goodness you forgot you were missing.
