Well you can't have the one thing without the other ... lol

Those Chroming Rose "Pressure" vinyls are even hard to find here in Germany. Can't remember anymore when I've seen a copy on german Ebay.
Damn, that’s what I thought (although I hoped it was findable, just that nobody cared about it).

Actually there was a copy on Ebay some weeks ago, the problem was that it was sold as part of a lot of 6 random LP’s and I didn’t need any of the other records. I put in what I thought was a strong bid of 190+ euros, but finished second.

The other records in the lot were from Stormwitch, King Diamond and Tankard. I would have had to re-sell them to get a decent end price for just the Chroming Rose. I don’t like selling records, but still kind of regret I didn’t throw in more money...

Anyway, I will pay handsomely for it even if nobody else wants it. :lol:

Unfortunately, ordering from outside the EU to Sweden is almost hopeless these days. Chances are customs will sit on it for two months and then send it back to Japan without explanation.

That Alvacast LP came directly from Uruquay. Didn't take even 2 weeks to arrive. I think the mail situation has kinda normalized. I could ship parcels in the past 2 weeks to all places in the world, even to NZ, Brazil and Japan worked problemlessly.
Btw, I thought you are looking for a cheap copy of "Pressure". It could be found I think, but takes time to find it "between the lines". If DaN wouldn't already have everything, he'd have had some great deals with my nose for cheapos ... LOL

The issue I referred to is not covid related. Swedish post and customs don't want anyone to get anything from outside the EU, period. If you pull the "content is a gift" card, you're pretty much screwed. They will look for any excuse to send it back, and if they don't find one they often send it back anyway and say it must have been a mistake. If customs declaration is filled out with value and is not stated as gift, you are like to get it (and pay import charges), but only after they have sat on it for two months first.

As for covid related delays inside EU, I experience it's different depending which country you order from. Germany is as fast as ever, while the Greek postal system is completely screwed over and you must be prepared to wait six weeks or more for something to arrive.

Cheap is nice! Of course I would love if it was cheap, but I don't expect something to be cheap if it's difficult to find. :wink:

Nothing too rare on my part but on a recent trip to my hometown(Rochester NY) I took a trip to an old standby for record/tape memorabilia pillaging, Armand Schaubroecks House of Guitars. You might recognize the name cause there’s lots of pics of people from Exodus, Slayer, Motorhead, Van Halen, Hanoi Rocks etc etc wearing shirts for it. If you have even a passing interest in metal, hard rock or punk and you find yourself within 3 hours driving distance of this place and have some cash, FUCKING GO. Half of it is a huge music equipment store full of vintage equipment and amps and the other half is a total amazing chaotic mess of a record store that has been operating since the early 70s at least. Its walls are adorned with fading metal/hard rock promo posters, candid pics of 80s metallers signing records, vintage shirts hung from the ceiling etc. You will have to set some time aside to dig through tons of shit but trust me if you know what you’re looking for you’ll find something crazy for a great price. Some scores I’ve come across that really boggle my mind: SEALED 80s dead stock copies of VA “Lead Weight”, Juggernaut-“Baptism Under Fire”, Motorhead-“Rock N Roll”, Blade Runner- “Hunted”, Le Griffe- “Fast Bikes”, tons of sealed tapes etc. Also heard tales of people scoring original Holocaust pressings and other mega rare stuff. The wildest part is apparently they have an entire basement area that isn’t open to the public full of sealed dead stock dating at least to the early 80s and they basically bring dead stock up from there as it sells and since they have so much shit to get rid of and limited space they do pretty wild bargain pricing. If you’re sick of hip record stores over pricing shit this is the place for you. Back in the early 2000s you could even score vintage Possessed, Savage Grace, Destruction, Raven, Overkill etc shirts there but again they keep those in the basement now cause they don’t want rich hipster/collector/flipper scum coming through and buying everything up. Seriously made me feel like a teenager again being there!

I used to teach guitar there in the early 90s. Armand and his brother were great people. When I was there, the basement was open and that's where all the records were. Heaps and heaps. I scored a sealed UK press 6 1/2 Year Anniversary Metallica boxset there amongst a lot of other stuff. Armand bought up a lot of cases of BMG records too so there was a pile of stuff there on lp that was pressed in limited quantities because CDs took over that today can go for stupid money

I miss Record Archive when they had 2 locations. Mt Hope Ave one was by far the best for Metal lps and oddball demo tapes of local bands. I am still looking for a copy of Raising Cain or Raising Kane, can't remember the spelling but one of the songs was featured on WCMF's Homegrown around 1992. The guitar player still works at Monroe Muffler or Meineke
You remember a band called Shag? The drummer (Mike) used to work at the pawn shop on Monroe Ave where you could score killer audio equipment on the cheap all the time. Records selection was never huge but my best find there was a copy of Liquid Mirror - Kicked Out of Fantasy

Rochester was great back in the 80s early 90s. At least I got to play several times at the Penny Arcade. I was so bummed to hear its closed. That place had just about every hardrock and Metal band play there over the years

I am surprised the HOG was not all picked over by the time I moved to Connecticut in 2000
There’s still heaps and heaps in there. About to go back to visit my folks and dig soon. My friend works at Record Archive with Dan from Nuclear Assault/Brutal Truth but unfortunately that is TOTALLY picked over or they just over price everything. They have a beer bar in the store though so hey at least you can have a beer and bullshit with Dan a bit haha.
