#1 — Sam Rosenthal: Tanzmusik — handmade cover ($24)
The black vinyl is the 2012 Mannequin Records Italian reissue. The covers are an edition of 100 I handmade, recreated to look like the original 1984 vinyl, with cards affixed to an LP jacket.
#2 — Black Tape For A Blue Girl: The Rope LP — handmade cover ($25)
The black vinyl is ‘new old stock’ pressed in 1986. The covers are handmade in 2016, with color photos glued to a one-color printed black LP jacket. I hand-wrote the album title and signed.
Please note this important disclaimer: Due to the age of the unplayed vinyl, there is some warping. If you are opposed to any warpage on your LPs, please do not purchase this item. I asked the most exacting Blacktape vinyl customer to review a copy. He writes: “True, I like to have a ‘perfect’ record, but still this plays out and the warping issue is not audible. The only way to know it’s warped is to look at it. The warp on mine is not a bother to me. Others might have issues with it, of course. When I replayed my copy with a record weight it was flat warp free.”
Also keep in mind the vinyl has been in storage for 30 years, so the album will need a wet cleaning to remove dust and such.
