What Remains

With the Mouthpiece discography being released on Revelation this week, it seemed appropriate that I finally get this record up on the blog. I was on a big Mouthpiece kick a few weeks ago, and so I hit ebay to try and find some vinyl for my collection. I was surprised when I was able to pick up their LP for only $15, and once I received it, I saw why. This copy had no lyric sheet insert. The seller was some ebay store, so I'm sure that the guy had no idea that it was supposed to come with one, so I'm not blaming him...but how did the original owner lose the insert! I can't understand why people don't take care of their stuff, and how stuff like this can even happen. It boggles my mind. I've seen friends that keep piles of of CD's, some without a case, in the backseat of their car. I know countless people that don't keep their shit organized in any kind of fashion...just stacks of CD's in no particular order. Okay, I'll admit that I'm a little obsessive when it comes to my collection, but how these people let their records get scratched to shit, and the album covers beat to hell is beyond me.

Nothing more annoying than when you get a record with a damaged sleeve, or a missing insert. I have a couple of records without an insert and it bugs me, cos it means I am going to have to try to buy them again. I feel your pain bro!

What a great record this is. Can't wait for the Mouthpiece discography to fall in the mailbox as well.

Records without lyricsheets do suck however. I had it once with the Insted Bonds of Friendship lp.
