💿 ​eurodance collector of original Compact Discs if its added to my collection then its a CD 💿.
My collection is mostly made up of 90s releases but also 80s sounds.

​VG+💿

“Will Show Signs That It Was Played And Otherwise Handled By A Previous Owner Who Took Good Care Of It”
(should be near mint then)

and VG+ grade should be scrapped for inlays with cuts and holes!!!
Discogs grading states "it may possibly have a cut-out hole (or similar)"

no CD cover graded VG+ should have cut holes some sellers benifit now grading VG+ and don't mention cut outs now many buyers are not happy with their purchases if there is cut outs on covers that have been graded VG+

because its stated in the goldmine standard
they get away with it when buyers complain.

covers cuts on sleeves should be graded VG!!
not VG+.

a VG+ cover inlay or sleave is not handled carefully and took good care of if its been sliced with a manufacturer cut!

Descriptions like VG++++++ baffle me if it was that good of a plus then why not grade it near mint?
most VG+ i have bought on Discogs are in dreadful condition.

As for NM "yellow on the top due to tarnished cigarette smoke"
broken jewel cases (that most will blame the post service) however I find strange because the snapped prongs are never in the packing or case do they suddenly vanish? more like they are sent out already smashed...

"new unplayed" === re-sealed battered, smelly, yellow tobacco stained CDs full of scuffs

probably never played is true just used as a plate for Sunday lunch.

I wish I could post the images of CDs I have received unplayed what they actually mean is unplayable.

finger marks writing on discs scratches folded , crinkled covers stickers on cds and sleeves.
then get sent out in an envelope to save money then blame the post service for the scratches and tears.
yeh my post person opens the package then writes his name on the CD then posts it me 😆

and the best of all a CD that costs £0.99 on release day some sellers try to sell them for £200 plus and extortionate prices

try to make a generous offer of half that and they will refuse so so greedy making a profit of triple of what its worth and they are still not happy.

I have offered £200 for CDs that was listed for £300
VG+
and have been declined when previous copies sold for around £100 NM condition

I have never known so much greed lately even on generous offers I still see the same disc still for sale 3 years after.

they must be so desperate to wait their entire life for a sale for a maximum price.
just sell it for a fair price make a little profit and let the buyer enjoy it rather than leaving it for sale for over a decade.

It's fairly obvious the seller isn't interested in enjoying the music as they put it up for sale.

they can always sell it for £1.99 and maybe charge £200 for shipping ...
to make up the price lost on accepting offers........GREED!

Wanting €250 but refusing a €200 offer then lowering it to €216 a month down the line? not like they are loosing €34
they are making a profit of €194
the CD probably cost around 6 euro new from the shop 😀

But niw my rant is over 🤪 a small few sellers actually sell VG+ graded items that have actually been better than NM and closer to Mint! 💿

I own older CDs that are over 27 year old that have been “Played and handled” and are just that still as new and have sold them as such with 💯feedback
its always nice to receive something better than advertised it is not however nice to receive something worse than advertised
And that's how i go through life in general
handle CDs this way they will last a life time 💿

CD’s… 💿…Cloud services fail, Hard drives crash. LPs wear out., Cassettes deteriorate, as long as you don't scratch them, CDs stay put. 💿

no flac
no wav
no mp3
no interest in digital downloading.

Although anyone genuine wanting help regarding tracks locating them etc that are expensive to buy in certain circumstances I can help rather than them paying well over the top to line greedy peoples pockets...

When most just want the song they enjoy so much.

Now I'm done here I will go and play a compact disc on my old reliable boombox....that can play WAV files from a USB and WAV files from a DVD ...

probably scan the AM stations too or unplug the telescopic ariel and insert a wired ariel thats attached to the roof and listen to some crystal clear RDS FM stations aggh.....the pleasures of choice...

or I could just sell it and buy one of the modern cheap tiny boom boxes of today you know i mean the ones the size of clock radios......with no boom....and listen to some digital DAB stations ......you know the compressed music stations that sound worse than AM and FM .or i could just buy a blue tooth speaker Box...... NO!!! Arhhh .....😳

DAB = dynamic audio bottlenecked

Once a great place for sellers and buyers is
Now getting only 3% of my total monthly purchases
I refuse to pay €2.00 for a VG+ CD €15 for shipping and €10 vat
Total spend €27 to receive a CD delivered in an envelope smashed and in G+ condition !!

CDs received through ​discogs
Are mostly in terrible state and good luck getting help from the site owners your on your in there....
It's becoming just an ad driven mess.
Shop else where if you want to receive what you really bought.....they have your back........

Same as Da Blitz they also went down this route with tracks produced after 1996/1997 with "I Believe" not their best track using the same baseline of the mid 95 eurodance but it was slower and the dream elements crept in.
