While I would normally be really happy about posting this recent purchase, I was actually pretty pissed off for a couple of days before I even considered posting this.
I was pretty stoked when I purchased a green copy of Reason to Believe’s “The Next Door”. It is pretty high up on my want list and it felt like forever before I even found a copy that was for sale. So when I finally found one, I jumped on it.
It finally came in the mail and while I was taking pictures of it I found something that horrified me. I found physical cracks in the runoff. I was pissed and felt ripped off.
I emailed the seller and told him I wished he said that there were cracks in the record. He replied back stating that he did not notice any. I wanted to write him back about getting my money back but in the end I just said “fuck it”.
I’m going to assume positive intent here, especially since the seller is a known good dude in trading circles, that he really didn’t know about these cracks. I don’t want to blame anyone for this happenstance. I’m just still kinda pissed at the situation.
I was going to post pictures of the cracks on the record here but I figure what’s the point. It’s not going to help me. I’ll just try to stay positive. I found one of these. I’ll find one again. The one I have will be a place holder.
There were 50 of these in existence. Now there are 49. Shitty.
