And the quality is graded by the seller from various categories from Poor to Mint (with Good, Very Good and Very Good Plus in between). I've found anything from Very Good to Very Good Plus from a seller with good feedback is a-okay.

I don't think my fiancee realized how much I'd spend on records when she got me the new turntable/stereo receiver for xmas.

Torres with some gold here


Yeah the ratings make you more comfortable about buying used. And most sellers have multiple feedback ratings and sell in amazing quantities. Once you find a handful of good sellers you pretty much check their inventory on a regular basis, or at least I'm finding myself doing so...

Yeah, for example, random one-off stuff would be probably better on Ebay (obscure bands/releases). New releases probably ArtistDirect, Amazon or even Best Buy, but the general stuff that millions of people have from the 70's-80's, buy 5 albums for a quarter each on Discogs vs. like $5 each on Ebay.

Once you get the hang of it, you become hooked. Be careful! Before you know it, you'll own the Elton John and Aerosmith discographies.....

Sounds like your Mott the Hoople and Moby Grape are my Randy Newman and Jimmy Buffett.

do the folks selling records on discogs post actual photos of the item for sale? i use eBay because there are a lot of detailed photos. i've never used discogs (except for one purchase where i couldn't find it on ebay)

Upon request only, some will also send you any audio samples you may request to verify condition.

I was wondering the same as well. Thank you. I wish they were proactive about it though.

Yeah, if you pay attention to feedback ratings you should be pretty pleased though. Everyone I've bought from rates things spot-on. It's safe to assume the sellers with high volume must be doing things right, but still check.

Yea, that's a really good point. I'm wondering which band is the next that I should dive into. I'm thing maybe U2, Queen, or Zeppelin.
