    You mean original pressing or reissue right? My cut-off's about £50-60 for an original of whatever it is I want. I don't mind buying cheaper poorer quality condition original LPs as long as it'll play alright. Recently I've found a lot of people listing their records in a poorer condition than they actually are.

      There's plenty of people here who buy new stuff. Esp. non-european/american stuff that is highly unlikely to turn up in your local market. Labels like finders keepers, trunk and soundway get a fair bit of enthusiasm.

      Enthusiastic vagueness passes for scholarship in the twilight world of the disc-jockey.

            I used to buy a load of reissues but got a bit fed up with the pressing quality.A lot of them would just start sounding a bit crummy after a few plays or would sound a bit wrong.

            Just wait until a decent orig turns up for a relatively low price and be very patient.

              I buy a fair few new vinyl records, either reissues or new releases. One thing I have noticed is that I come across a much higher percentage of mispressings and the like buying new than second hand. I have often wondered if this is down to modern vinyl pressing not being what it once was (as I am inclined to think), or is it just that when talking about 20+ year old records the crap pressings have been filtered out of circulation?

              I'm only a relatively young fella so I don't know what pressing quality was like in 50s-70s, i.e. were there just as many mispressings as there are now?

              I hope that post makes sense, the wine is starting to kick in after a hard week...

                Somewhat ironically I regularly visit our 'outsider music' local indie (alt vinyl) in town and beat down to pick up new stuff which (usually) sounds old... I'm a sucker for hissy 4 track recorded psych jams and voodoo percussion pressed on runs of 329...

                As for vintage releases - original wherever possible, up to a limit of about £200 max I'd say (probs the most I've ever spent)... but if its horrifically rare or whatever I'll make do with a repro - there are some real labels of love seeking out (and improving on) master tapes and putting the graft in to make heavy duty pressings and equally nice sleeves... ie. Finders Keepers, Light In The Attic, Numero Group etc.

                  i think in general the pressings where ok
                  but for instance i have the album of sadhu brand on the original label but both copies i have are unplayble one has a nasty bent in the pressing the other is so out of centre my recordplayer cant take it ;-)
                  on the other hand the french pressings didnt sound nice ,compared to german or english pressings . but its truth , some new pressings are in a bad condition ;-)

                    Just bought a new record for the first time in a long time
                    Chris McGregor Band - Up To Earth
                    Never issued before - and really too free and wild for me!

                      I have an Australian copy of that LP, OK pressing and much cheaper than the original private US release...

                        Ooh ... didn't know that had got a vinyl release! Wonder if they gave Very Urgent the same treatment.

                          This week I thought about blowing some store credit on a Hank Mobley 'Dippin' re-issue but it made me feel som empty inside that I resisted.

                            Anything released by Ashtray Navigations is great psych for late-night listening.But you have to be quick as they tend to vanish as fast as they come out.

                              Haven't seen it, if there is
                              Although I think its got a CD reissue
                              I'd say that Up To Earth is much more difficult than Very Urgent
                              Missed out on a copy on the bay recently - someone sniped me at the last moment
                              And I wasn't about to shell our a ton for the one I saw in Rays
                              Still there'll be another
