I am a Hiroshima fan, as well. Have never heard this album but what caught my eye is that one of the businesses we have as a customer where I work is called Yutaka.😆

And after another trip to Jerry's with a list if records I already had (which of course disappeared before I was done, and I still managed to buy a duplicate), I left with 21 more selections.
Are those their stickers on the covers/sleeves? If so, that would be a deal breaker for me. Just one man's opinion....
So far, the stickers from Jerry's, while designed to tear apart when removed, seem to come off easily and cleanly in 3-4 pieces, except in one case where they put it over the remains of an old one from another store, and I tried to remove both. While they usually have an outer cover, the stickers are unfortunately on the sleeve itself to prevent price switching. I had more difficulty removing a few of the stickers from assumption records, one did damage the cover.

What aggravates me more than stickers on the covers is the burned out light over the beginning of the folk section at Jerry's, which has so far, concealed skip causing diagonal scratches on the two Joan Baez albums from the previous visit, and this time, on side 3 of the copy of Belafonte at the Greek Theatre from this haul :evil: :evil: . For that matter, the better part of their lighting throughout store leaves something to be desired when checking a record's condition, as well as the knarly looking plastic cantilevered red stylus they were using on the 2 cheap all in one systems present for customer record evaluation. A few areas with good, intense lighting, and even something low end with a AT-3600 stylus would be a big improvement in my opinion.

I hope Jerry's is listening! #-o

Both Hank Williams and Todd Rundgren saw the light and Manfred Mann was blinded by it but Big B is reduced to singing underwhelmed by the light. Even Johnny Nash could see clearly now. :wink:

I don't want to sound too critical, but in this age of LED replacements for florescent tubes, I'd think the place could be brightened up quite a bit over the old fluorescent tubes which many of are getting dim, and without raising the power bill. To properly evaluate a record, I like good lighting from several directions, of course my vision isn't what it used to be 20 years back, or getting any better.
:old-git:
When playing a record for a quick evaluation, I check for worn stylus damage at beginning and sibilance or dull sound at end, which I would prefer not to make worse, or add to a good record using that ceramic cartridge with a possibly sapphire stylus tip that looked big enough to mount on a ring. I even cringe about subjecting a pristine record to a conical 3600 stylus, but find I've all but abandoned my more expensive cartridges on a manual turntable lately over the AT3600 variant fitted with a $25 elliptical upgrade on my old Pioneer and having automatic convenience within arms reach of listening position.

Bought on Discogs what was advertised as a first stereo pressing of the Beatles album Revolver on Parlophone. The seller listed it wrong, even though it is indeed a first pressing. It's the mono pressing! Still has awesome sound quality. The labels have titles in all caps and the Side 2 label's fourth song is listed as "DR. ROBERT". The record has hairlines but no serious scratches.

A couple selections you asked about in my last pictures from the visit to Jerry's should be at your door today, VM.

I grabbed these at an antique mall Saturday. ELO looks like it's brand new but it's a club edition from 1977. The absolute highlight is finding a Casiopea album! Rush 2112 is also in amazing condition for a 1976 repress. The only album in sorta bad shape is the Grand Funk and the only thing wrong is the sleeve is split.

Woot!
Good finds.
Out of The Blue is a favorite of mine.
