new, warped vinyl--WTF (and plug for "searching for sugarman")
« on: November 07, 2012, 10:11:08 AM »
I just got the new 2 X 180g LP soundtrack for "Searching for Sugarman"  -- great music by Rodriguez from 40 years back and my favorite movie of the year!

and now from the sublime to the ridiculous:

I rarely buy new records but when I do it seems that 2 out of 3 are warped.  They usually still play, but really, is it that hard to make a flat record?

   Just send them back. They should replace with no issue. Acoustic Sounds does.

I buy a lot of new records. It seems that the 180g seem to have the worst issues with warping. But I have only had a few that were warped. I had them replaced with out any issues.
