The albums in this category were damaged in transport to us, and we're selling them at cost. All of the vinyl is in new (mint) condition, but the outer jackets have had some damage in the post. This includes bent and dinged corners, and albums that cut through the spine of the jacket (which is why we remove LPs from their jackets in transport!) None of these jackets are terribly damaged, but we can't in good faith sell them as new. If you don't mind a wrinkle, bend or cut and want any of these albums at a great price, we're happy to sell them to you: they weren't pressed to sit in a box at Squidco, they should be spinning on your turntable for you to enjoy!
