Weezer - S/T LP (The good one, not one of the 800 crappy S/T LPs they've released)
Oddly enough I never had this record on vinyl. And say what you will about every Weezer record other than the 1st two, but I love this record. It's always just been too expensive for me to justify picking up. It was either out of print or a super pricey import. I couldn't bring myself to spend $50+ on this. But while trolling through one of the vinyl collecting message boards I frequent, I came across a guy who was looking for some records and offered this up for trade. I had one of the records on his list, Jimmy Eat World - Futures LP. I have had that record since it came out, I got it for free when I worked in the music industry and it's just sat in my collection un-played. Why unplayed? Because it is a horrible, horrible record. Anyway, I was all too happy to trade that crummy record for this Weezer record. Finally in the collection, and it didn't cost me a dime.
Yeah, there is about a 2 inch seam split on the top of the cover. I'm not thrilled about that, but again, this record was essentially free, so I'm not going to complain about that too much.
