    Anyone else seriously addicted to this place, been locked on it for about 2 years now.

    im constantly finding bargains lurking around sellers like a drug addict looking for my next vinyl fix


    Been buying loads of soul, old hip hop, funky stuff and anything i can get my hands on.

    got a near mint copy of this randomly for £1

    Obviously still using it to pick up back cat D&B i never had chance to bag etc ..

    just got near mint copy of this £4. have seen copys go for £30 before!

    long live the vinyl fiends

    I dont think ive ever been on there and come away empty handed, if you dig deep its a proper goldmine! Theres loads of stuff I still want off there, just waiting for prices to go down.

    You could get a custom dubplate cut with 2 tracks on it for £40........but finding a wav for capone is the problem....... because there isnt one about.... hence the price of the vinyl

    ....more full stops

    I dont mind paying 40 quid for a tune. Ive paidd that amount for classic hip hop in the past. I just cant affored it at the mo.

    How many kidneys do you actually need....?

    Need to start using this site to find little gems. I'm not familiar with using it at all tho. I was thinking of making a thread about the site, so Noize your timing is great. Is there anything I should know about before I jump into buying stuff offa there head first? Like Fes told me to try and stick to buying from people here in the U.S. Also I should prolly only buy from people with a lot of positive feedback right? Anything else I should know?

    yeah i would try and stick to buying from sellers in the same country, just due to the shipping costs really.
    its pretty similar to ebay in some respects, apart from everyone i have delt with on there has been safe as.
    just do your research and dont get stung up on the price. u can get some great bargains and old gems! its dangerously addictive!

    I'm 99.9% certain I've got Capone: Friday, I will check tonight and if I have it'll going on up ebay as i can't seem to sell on my discogs account. I haven't played in 10 years or so and it'll be in top notch condition.

    Ive seen that a few times Nick but its pressed at 33, which is a bit of a pain in the arse if im being honest. Might have to plump for it if i cant get a copy of the 12. Cheers for the heads up though geez

    I'll confirm tonight here. I'm certain i have. I'm amazed to see nothing on the 'Cogs or Ebay for this though.
    Think I only played it twice when it came out and it's just been sitting on a shelf since.
