About these records / additional postage instructions

Here's an assortment of original 70s and 80s 12"s - mostly it's favorite records that I stocked up on for my mailorder business that ran from the mid-Seventies to 2000.

Ideally this would be a hybrid music-blog and retail space, but because this is a commercial website only partial MP3s are posted unless there are full versions on YouTube, band-sites or blogs, which I've linked to wherever possible.
Again, almost all of these are records that I liked and tried to hype at the time: the fact that they're still here demonstrates that few people believed me at the time, but here's the audio evidence...

grading is standard: DISK/SLEEVE

DISKS: Most disks are UNPLAYED unless noted (or played once to make the MP3 samples). Nothing is graded better than "EX". Wherever possible I have linked to complete versions of the songs on blogs or on YouTube, but please bear in mind that the sound-quality there is apt to be substantially worse than the 128K MP3s here (taken from unplayed records). SLEEVES: Jackets range from pristine to shop-worn, as indicated: again, nothing is graded better than "EX". The copies you receive will be as clean as or better than the copy shown on the website.
More importantly, please note that my scanner is tuned to the Messthetics "aesthetic": I want the images for Messthetics to look well-loved - like actual old records (which of course they are) - so it has been my preference to show ever tiny wrinkle, every sticker-stain, and every bit of yellowing. This is not such a good idea here, however, where I am trying to scan mostly new, unplayed stock to sell to collectors. So PLEASE understand that everything will look better in person!

SEALED DISKS: after 30+ years sealed in shrinkwrap, no one can be certain what you'll find inside. Furthermore, no amount of padding can prevent the LPs inside from bursting the seams of the record-jacket if the parcels are dropped or otherwise abused during shipment. Therefore...Sealed records are sold AS IS, unless you request that I open them carefully to confirm that they are flat, unplayed, and undamaged. They will be sent to you still in the shrink-wrap, with the disks removed from the jacket and (any printed innersleeve) so that there is no risk of seam-splits in transit.

POSTAGE is charged at cost. In most cases there should be a clear choice that corresponds with the quantity of records and/or CDs that you are ordering. One exception is that overseas airmail postage for 3 singles or 3 CDs (or a combination) costs $10.95. Please choose the 2- or 3 LPs Priority option. I'll know what it's for. If not, please write and I will tell you the exact amount (please contact info(at)hyped2death.com).
