Welcome Licorice Pizza (LP) lovers! Setup guides and Vinyl FAQ.

I just restored another eBay disaster yesterday by a thorough cleaning,

and the result was a totally silent LP. It looked awful previously, and it even had green mold on one side despite its Near Mint rating. I advised the seller that everything was now okay and a refund was not necessary.

Then, today I receive this new eBay monster, and you can see that it was actually played dirty. That ground in dirt may not result in a quiet, Mint-, LP this time. It is hard to see in my pictures, but there are also numerous fine scratches on this LP. This too will lower the rating to below Near Mint.

As many other inmates have stated, the new eBay "Near Mint" is actually VG or VG+ at best. I actually limit myself to "Near Mint" auctions on eBay in hopes that the record will be a real, Goldmine or VJM, VG+ or Near Mint.
