Record Store Day is on Saturday, April 18 and Clutch is releasing a special edition, colored vinyl version of From Beale Street To Oblivion. This double LP has never before been available on vinyl and it contains one of Clutch’s classic fan-favorite tracks: “Electric Worry”. The album was re-mastered for this release and comes in a classic gatefold package.

From Beale Street To Oblivion was the first studio product released by Clutch on their own Weathermaker Music label. L...

My record player is from the 80s and it's losing its durability. With some records, it just cuts out and gets very quiet but maintains a loud, bassy buzzing noise. I think it's a wiring issue between the phonograph and the receiver, because when I take the time to push the wires in a little more firmly it usually works. It also seems to be less of a problem with newer and clean records. I don't know...I want a new one but it's pricey $$$ and I don't make much money.

I want something very simple. I don't need any digital components. I don't know if direct-drive or belt-driven is better for me. I would like something that will last for a long time and produce average/typical sound quality. Any suggestions? I've looked around, but then I look at prices and decide to just go home and force my player to keep working.

I say scour the craigslists and want advertisers for someone either giving one away or selling their ex-husband's on the cheap. You described one of my two record players pretty well; maybe I should get it fixed or look for a cheap replacement myself.

^Yeah I agree, that's what CDs are for! I like records because that friction is essential to the experience. I am somehow comforted knowing that I am destroying my possessions by simply using them.

I have fallen into a dark hole of buying new and used records online. Currently I'm collecting John Hartford records and other old-time and bluegrass albums that pique my interests like this Sam Bush one I ordered and also an old time fiddle tune record with Jethro Burns on mandolin. I know I need to stop but there's this John Hartford string band record I want and then another one he does called Speed of the Old Long Bow with all these dope fiddle tunes. I mean I'm gonna get it eventually. Why not now?
