We have purchased a number of copies of all the records we sell. We have created CDs and MP3s of excellent quality using multiple recordings from the records we've purchased. You will find the quality of our CDs to be superb. In order to abide by copyright laws, we offer for sale records with the CDs and MP3s for our customers who do not already own the vinyl lps. If you, like me, have held on to your records, you need only buy the CDs. You already have a copyright obtained when you bought the records; therefore, copyright laws allow you to have a transfer copy of the original recording your purchased.
All our CDs are printed directly - no labels - and include the song listing, artist/release name, and a thumbnail image of the front album artwork. CDs are packaged in plastic jewel case boxes. Our jewel cases include the front album artwork on the front and the song listing on the back. We do not include the back album artwork as we have found many album jackets contain a lot of text on the back which does not reduce down from the 12" album jacket to the 5" CD insert satisfactorily. The artist and release name are printed on the side spine.
Because we sell the vinyl records only to provide you a legal copyright and thus the legal right to own the transfer copy CD, we make no claims as to the quality or condition of the vinyl records you may receive. The records you purchase may or may not have been used to create your CDs. The sound quality of your CDs will be highly superior to the vinyl record you receive if you purchase lps. We give you the option to purchase a vinyl record (if we have them in stock) in the purchase options below the Song Listing of each item.
MP3 downloads are also available for many of our releases. As with the CDs, you must own the record to purchase an MP3 download. If you purchase the download, you will not receive a CD. Of course, if you prefer to purchase the MP3 download to a CD, but you do not own the records, we are happy to sell you the records along with your download.
(Your CD will of course have the artwork and song listing for the album you purchase.)
(Your jewel case will of course have the artwork for the album you purchase.)
(Your jewel case will of course have the song listing for the album you purchase.)
(Both side spines are printed in this way.)
