    Has anybody come across a copy of James Browns Big Payback or In The Jungle Groove?

    I've been looking for these at my locals and come up nadda...

    So I have a new problem. 

    I bought Metallicas black album. New, from the vinyl selection of a supermarket so I didn't keep the reciept (I sometimes put them inside the jacket of the album).

    I listened through the the first side earlier last week and it played through nicely. I didn't touch the album after that, it stayed on the player while I went away. I came back now - and trying to play it again it skips on the first song Enter Sandman. 

    I have done nothing to the album. It played through nice. I turned off the recordplayer. I try to play it again a few days later and it skips.

    I tried cleaning it with the brush. But it doesn't help. It skips at the same spot. I will try to clean it more. 

    But still -- I don't get how a new album can start to skip, with me doing nothing to it and it worked like a charm on the first play through.

    FUCK VINYL. VIVA SPOITIFY

    Might have a hard particle on the vinyl.
    When this happens I usually lightly drag my finger nail on the groove in that spot to clear that spot.Vinyl is durable it won’t scratch just apply enough pressure to get it off not enough to scratch it.
    hope this works

    That would be my guess.  Running it a few times through a Spin Clean might clear out the issue.  Using a finger nail lightly as RobbyD suggest would be my second option.  When all else fails, use a magnifying glass and a toothpick and try to carefully dislodge the blockage. 

    Ironically I just (and I mean just) opened and cleaned this new record that I bought through eBay.  It had a similar issue.  I cleared the blockage out with fingernail and there is a bit of noise in that one spot but nothing serious.  It's also slightly warped but plays well enough and the price was right and I'll keep it. 

    Here it is, my latest obsession- Dream Syndicate- this one's called Ghost Stories from 1988:

    Will try the fingernail thing. 

    It's fucking irritating. Brand new album. And I did nothing to it.

    It's very frustrating to buy new vinyl that has defects right out of the package!

    He's responsible for incredibly poor live drumming.

    Great studio drummer, though.

    Should have kept the receipt. But buying it at the supermarket I didn't think about it and threw it like I do all supermarket receipts.

    The record store I liked to frequent closed earlier this year, as the owner and his wife retired.  The other two near me are run by dicks (basically) so I don't feel the need to patronize them.  So now I'm free to buy from Amazon (and Ebay too).  If there's something wrong with the Amazon record, I have no problem returning it.

    The problem with that for me is Amazon.  They want to put all family owned brick and mortar stores out of business and they treat their employees like slaves. 

    We don't have a decent record store anywhere near us these days either so I either order from independent stores I know of outside my area like the very cool Red Devil Records in San Rafael, California, or Discogs, or as a last resort, eBay.

    I know the problem with Amazon and go to them last.  But I'd rather pay them than the douches at Plan9 in a Richmond. I do ebay as well but always seem to end up at the monster seller called get_import_cd.  They have 2.5 million reviews.  Im not sure of that's better than Amazon or not.

    I hear you about get_import_cd.  I bought something from them years- a record that was slapped between two thin pieces of cardboard.  Not what I would call "sturdy" packaging!  

    Have you had any luck with Discogs?  I like some of the sellers there and always go with either the ones I've had good buying with or that have good reviews.  I always read the rating reviews.

    Yes bought a ton of used there,  especially when looking for a specific pressing.  I've had about 80% success.  You're right,  the reviews are key because there's a bunch a amateurs there.  I bought Cars Moving in Stereo two weeks ago.  4 days after ordering,  I got a message that the order was cancelled.  That's annoying.  I ended up buying it from an Ebay seller out of California that I've used a few times.  Called Packman I think.

    I need to listen more to them.  They do the soundtrack top Peaky Blinders and I dig it.
