Frampton Comes Alive - Peter Frampton
Already ordered one mint copy of this album on ebay for £4,99!
Not wishing to put a downer on your purchase (which is a very good album BTW) but I too have ordered "mint" copies off Ebay in the past, but my idea of mint differed quite considerably from the seller.
Mint should be according to Ebays own definition..
"MINT: The record itself is in brand new condition with no surface marks or deterioration in sound quality. The cover and any extra items such as the lyric sheet, booklet or poster are in perfect condition. Records advertised as Sealed or Unplayed should be Mint.
Yes i know!
but this last mounth or so i've bought 30 some thing vinyl albums from ebay, not one lost in the mail ( it will happen some day...)
i've receaved albums that were discribed as mint and they are Exelent or VG+
and i've receaved albums descrived as Exelent or VG+ and they are in MINT conditions.
There are is no consensus in this thing...
Rega RP3 / Goldring 1012gx > Rega Fono MM V2
Synology DS213 > QED Performance USB > Rega DAC > QED Performance RCA
Pathos Classic One > Inakustik LS 1102 cable > Dynaudio Excite X12 and some times BK XLS200 MK II
SBT > G&BL teflon line RCA > NAD 3020i > Supra Classic 2x4mm > Monitor Audio RS1
That's good to hear.
My Ebay experiences with regards vinyl have generally been very good too, as I say just the odd one or two where the seller has been a little bit economical with the truth where the condition was concerned.
Having said that, I've bought brand new LPs before now (eg. Dust Bowl - Joe Bonamassa) where the surface noise was intolerable and subsequently returned for replacement.
There's a lot to be said for CDs

Frampton Comes Alive ( Again )
I've bought this album along side with Genesis Seconds on ebay, should arrive today.
It were albums that i wanted to buy in my youth and never had the money, as i had to make some choices... We all do back then....
I have just received two LP`s off a seller on ebay.Well he put them on as vgc I have never seen records that are so dirty they play but they are filthy.I had all my albums in the loft for 10 years and they were cleaner than his.I will be contacting him about it
I only buy described as Exelent or near mint or min... For what it's worth...
