For the most part, I've been avoiding eBay for a while. I'd mostly been focusing on buying new releases, and had really started to slack off on filing in old holes in the collection. Then I stumbled upon The Endless Quest. I could immediately relate, as Marcus was using his blog, like mine, to capture all the new vinyl that he was adding to his collection. I had started my blog back in 2006 on a whim...just something to occupy my endless fascination with collecting records, and I was completely amazed to find someone else doing the exact same thing. After reading through Marcus' blog, I suddenly had the itch again to start buying some older vinyl and dove headfirst back into eBay. My wife is still giving me a hard time about our finances so I did manage some restraint and only looked to pick up some crucial stuff for relatively low prices. The first thing that caught my eye was the Overload LP from Lights Out. Man, I can't get enough of this album, and right now it is the album that I have listened to the most over the past few years...yes, I'm a complete geek and I actually keep track of that stuff. I picked up the "pre-press" of the album, with the screened cover and photocopied lyric sheet, which was limited to 325. I also got the pink colored vinyl press, which was limited to 225 as was sent out for pre-orders. I think that the only pressing that I am missing for this album is the second pressing on white vinyl.
