JJ's Vinyl Madness Countdown #657
January 29, 2018 3:30am CST
I wish everyone knew how to take proper care of a record. So much 'used' vinyl has been badly used...'rode hard and put away wet' so to speak. But sometimes, you find stuff that either the person was very careful with their collection, or they bought something and only played it a few times. I don't know which case this is, but this is a 53 year old original mono copy of this release in almost pristine shape inside. I do know that somewhere along the way, someone named Tutewiler owned it, because they have their name on the front and back of the cover, as well as written on the album label. So a big THANK YOU for not leaving fried-chicken prints on it. Barry McGuire - Eve Of Destruction

I would like to start buying and collecting used vinyl records , but it is often the condition of them that puts me off. What is the point in buying a record if the condition is not good, ie. scratched, and you cannot listen to it properly. It is nice to know that you have found one in good condition. Music like this will never be made again.

@millie02 I usually purchase through Discogs from trusted buyers that rate album condition when they sell it. Doesn't seem to be many auctions in this area with any large collections, at least that I have found. The last one I looked at had a few thousand albums, but nothing I'd listen to.
