ha i get you. i hate waiting for things and normally crumble and pay more money then i really want to for a record, so thats why i welcome the reissues. I actually was about to bite the bullet on the soul capsule one then like a week later I see there was a repress.

I want that jovonn as well and now i see the repress is slowely getting more expensive. some of these sellers like muttdiscogs has had stuff for years in my wantlist. no movement in price at all, it really sucks.

i get the hunting thing, the problem for me is, we dont have a lot of record shops where i live, and the ones we have check every record against discogs before they selling it to you ..

even if you go to some vinyl second hand market where everyone is selling theire vinyls for 50 cents to 2 euros, before you actually can buy the record, they check discogs, its silly. you put the work in drive to a vinyl market search for the vinyl and get the same price minus shipping thats stupid.

im happy with things right now, so much gets reissued, or released digitally. for me its not worth it to buy a expensive record right now.

basically i am just a grumpy git who is annoyed that old records got cool. no need for an argument cos i can see just how ridiculous my stance is. discogs is completely sick these days.

to be honest even the shops in london are crap these days. same thing you describe, just discogs cheapies with shipping saved. whereas three years ago you could go in and find a different gemini ep each time for 50p. discogs is a great tool but its monopoly on music sales has taken a lot of the fun out of the process. i was just lucky to be slightly ahead of the curve and buy many of these things before it all went to sh!t.

yeah agree. plus with vinyl and digging for records becoming 'cool' you got all them kids spending days on end in the second hand stores making it even harder to find the gems.

theres a really good second hand record shop in east though that has a huge basement full of gems. a mate of mine picked up all the thule back cat for like 2.99 each.
