I'm a lifelong obsessive record collector geek. By the age of 12 I wanted to be a graphic designer, so I am. But I got severely sidetracked into software development by 1988-2001. Specialty: user interface design. My spouse wanted to move to Asheville in 2001 so I am no longer developing software and the budget is tight. I am learning to love the collection I have without feeding it so often. I live for postpunk era music, roughly 78-85 encompassing: New Wave, New Music, Progressive and Alternative nomenclatures.

If you buy from me, I will package your total order and give you a shipping quote for the cost. I will not seek to make money on shipping. I used to have automatic shipping quotes enabled but rising costs mean that I have to re-evaluate the cost values and I don't have the time for that now.

I do not swap files, so please don't ask. I am thinning out my collection and you'll see parts of my collection for sale. But if there's something you have an interest in, message me and I'll think about posting it for sale in response.

The pink hype sticker covering the "E" in "More" was an intentional visual pun; referring to the influence of Muzak that Jerry Dammers was feeling at thew time of making the album. Placing the sticker exactly there had the effect of turning the title ... See full review

Since I was not a typical hard rock Zep fan at the time, I have intriguing memories of this one. I've been wanting to get a cheap copy of it for many years now to give it a listen for the first time since '79.

It's interesting that the 2005 Rhino remaster is so decried for its brickwalling since Bill Inglot and Ken Perry mastered both versions. Oh well.
