  • Blink182 items sale - question!
    The figurines and plushes I'm sure someone would be better suited to answer than myself here but if you have any rare CD singles/Vinyl you can go to and all the past sale information is all there. - Source: Reddit / 3 days ago
  • [TOMT][MUSIC/CD][Late 1990’s-early 2000’s] Looking for an old childhood CD
    I'm not getting any hits on for cds with all of the songs you listed. The Various Monster Mash by Peterpan records is best I'm pulling up. - Source: Reddit / 4 days ago
  • Vinyls
    First of all, is your friend. You don't really get many other options nowadays - all the online recordstores selling hardstyle from back in the days like Freaky, Midtown, Recess etc are dead. You might find SOME stuff here and there on ebay, but discogs is way, way better in cataloging and grading records, plus there is just ton more stuff there. - Source: Reddit / 7 days ago
  • Weekly Random Discussion Thread for 3/13/23 - 3/19/23
    On a much lighter note, some kid called me alt-right over some stupid thing, and then threatened to retaliate by nuking my perfect seller score on Discogs. Oh dear, I was soiling my undies for weeks afterward. :) (The kid never followed through with their threat, surprise surprise.). - Source: Reddit / 14 days ago
  • $2 Goodwill steal (: Can someone identify the pressing?
    You can go to and put in the info in the matrix runout - near the label after the last song. That is where/how you can identify the pressing of any vinyl (almost any I should say). - Source: Reddit / 9 days ago
  • Curious about any info on the Jolly Beggarmen
    So I would like to introduce a couple of resources that are pretty helpful when researching music. One is which has discographies for many musical artists, groups, etc. - Source: Reddit / 23 days ago
  • What’s the difference between these?
    Check, also. Here's the Meredith Wilson version of The Music Man. And, here's the Rodgers & Hammerstein version of The Sound of Music. - Source: Reddit / 14 days ago
  • Yeezus CD is a place I would recommend to get cds. - Source: Reddit / 15 days ago
  • Apple Music cover art and genre stickiness - macOS
    I do not know of any quick fixes other than to manually add album art through "get info" - "add art" from a jpeg file on your HD. I get missing album art from THEN after that is complete go to AM>Library>Update Cloud Library. That should update album art across all devices associated with your icloud account. - Source: Reddit / 15 days ago
  • ROBERT has stopped working today is blocked, it's white-listed in robert, I tried the most popular European servers. - Source: Reddit / 29 days ago
  • Vinyls
    Golden Echo is pretty hard to get, there's a couple on, for $$$. Vows I saw once on fb marketplace a few years ago but I was too slow! It's the only one I'm missing on vinyl so always on the hunt. - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
  • You guys ever see this cover for Weasels? Seems like a German import
    You can find all there is to know about it at - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
  • My fathers record collection, need advice.
    If you want to sell them locally, you could look to an estate auction company or local record store. If you want to do it yourself, check out and set up an account. - Source: Reddit / about 2 months ago
  • Who's Thor's Hammer?
    I have this track on a CD I burned around 2003. But I can't figure out where it's from. Haven't turned up anything on, haven't found it listed anywhere, asking my phone to identify it hasn't helped, doesn't seem to be from the complete masterworks. I'm thinking it's from a compilation, maybe attached to magazine, or maybe some radio promo. These seem unlikely because I think they'd be cataloged... - Source: Reddit / about 2 months ago
  • best place to find prices for old 45s? is pretty much the standard database everyone uses bc of its active marketplace, you can search out the releases you have and see what they've sold for and what others are asking for them. - Source: Reddit / about 2 months ago
  • Whoever you are(4***d)you made me sweat on this bidding war for the Devil May Cry 5 vinyl. I’m not even sure if I’m over paying at this point
    First, check always, it´s the biggest database of records in the whole internet. You can check at which price the record you searched was sold in the past. Or check past ebay auctions for the price of the record. - Source: Reddit / about 2 months ago
  • Where to buy VK CDs can be great for if you're looking for something specific but generally every seller will be japanese and shipping can be expensive. - Source: Reddit / 2 months ago
  • Birthday present is your first stop for buying records online. - Source: Reddit / 2 months ago
  • Vinyl is a terrible music format by almost every measurable metric and people only like it because it's old
    -They are insanely more expensive, and mostly because they are expensive to produce. Look for any example of an album you like on and you'll see that the CD version is $10 while the vinyl is $40 at least. And good record players rarely are less than $100. - Source: Reddit / 2 months ago
  • Looking for Information on Cassette?
    Incredibly weird. Are you sure that's not a very limited bootleg? I have found the weirdest of vinyl singles from 50s to 60s and they've all been added to, but this one I can't find. - Source: Reddit / 2 months ago
  • Thought I was buying TAFH box set last night - should have paid more attention to the website
    I used to see these used all the time in used record stores. Seems like the Canadians have a few for less than $30 with the shipping being a lot on - Source: Reddit / 2 months ago
