Re: the grading thing, imagine getting an "EX" of Cecil's Debut in the mail and have a long scratch across one side. Back it goes...

Cafe Montmartre?

Bummer !

Carmen McRae/Clark-Boland Big Band 'November Girl' (Black Lion) - suprisingly poor quality recording for Lansdowns studio. Or possibly just a bad pressing.

The Wizards From Kansas - S/T (Mercury, reissue)

Great album, shitty repress. Man, is there anything more MADDENING than opening a new vinyl only to find that it sounds worse than the cd/original beat up LP copy?? I tried cleaning it on my VPI and found it made a slight difference. As the saying goes you can't polish a turd. Alas.

Cluster - Cluster 71 (4 Men With Beards, 180g)

Another day and another bad repress. Actually unlike the "Wizards From Kansas" LP this sounded amazing but it had a big dimple at the end of side 3 which caused a loud click for the last 90 seconds of the album. So annoying. What's even more annoying is that I bought both LPs about a month ago and the receipts are long gone so I can't return them. Off to the used record shop I go......

Edit: should read "at the end of side 2..."

I'd probably listen to either one of those records WAY more than Cluster...

New vinyl tends to be on the rough side, in my experience. Even things you think will be "decent" quality, like Numero or Rearward, tend to have scuffs that click on a virgin play. To say nothing of your average Dischord or Matador pressing...
