No the buyer I tend to get them off supplies them with one which I think definitely helps to keep them in good shape,i have since purchased some additional 7" and 12" sleeves and have all my collection now protected in sleeves!

Analog sound is awesome. I prefer the sound of tapes and records to CDs. It feels and sounds like a block of music hitting you as opposed to separate noises and not enough background. That's the best I can describe it.

Ditto on the analog sound. It was, and always will be, fantastic. Way back in the 70s, I had a quadraphonic setup--four speakers, two in the front, two in the back. And although there weren't many, and they were hard to come by, if you had a direct-to-disc quad album, it was like being right in the concert hall live. The direct-to-disc was the purest analog you could ever get. The sound went directly from the mics straight to the machine that cut the master for the LP, with no degradation by tape in between. Just perfect.

On vinyl? I have to say, one of the best things about those CD sets in slipcases is that you can get all the Thompson Twins albums in little repro sleeves in a slipcase for about £10. Bargain!

Also Chloe (and any other Brits); places like Sainsbury's are now selling vinyl, and they have some great albums (lots of 80's ones) on heavy vinyl for about £15 each. I've seen things like 'Purple Rain', 'Violator', 'Welcome to the Pleasuredome' - and others - available.

Awesome pick ups Chloe.

My wife works in Sainsbury's Logan I'll have to ask her if they've got them in at my local Canterbury branch cheers for letting us know.

I've seen those CD sets with the repro sleeves and for £10 you get some serious bang for your buck!

Yes, on Vinyl.

Yes, my mother told me Sainsbury's are now selling Vinyl. She also told me she saw a couple of Depeche Mode ones in there, so will have to have a look next time I go in there. She can't remember which albums they are, though.

They definitely had Violator. Not sure what the other one would have been. Single albums are £14 and doubles are £20 (I think).

YW, you're getting quite the collection.

I scored what I think is a rare item at the thrift store. It isa demo record of Huey Lewis and the newses Heart and Soul. The same song on both sides. 33 1/3 speed. It was for promotional purposes only. Anyone have any idea if this baby is super rare or not?

Great track Terd and not sure if it's a rarity or anything but at a guess I would say yeah that it probably is as every version I've come across whilst looking so far has a B side track called "You Crack Me Up" on it!

If it's on sale from 1.77 In UK pounds which equates to 2 dollars 27 cent I think you can sadly throw any chance of it being a rarity plus my presumption that it was one straight out the window! [Big Grin]
