While I normally don’t sell stuff on this blog, or in general, I need to get rid of some things. This is the start of a thinning out process of doubles I’ve accumulated over the years along with getting rid of things I no longer listen to. Prices are set on all this for the most part. Except for the Alkaline Trio box and the Look Mexico and Lifetime collections I’m trying to sell as a lot, mainly because I have no idea what someone will pay for the stuff, but I’m not looking for crazy money. Yes, I am a bit late hopping on the Christmas present buying craze. So here are the ground rules:

Only the things on this list are for sale. Do not ask about anything else featured on this blog or anything that is not on the below list. Deals will be made for anyone who buys more than 1 thing. I’ll only ship to the USA. Paypal as payment only. So no bitcoin, Stripe or any of that other nonsense. If a color is not mentioned then it’s on black vinyl. Most of this stuff is either factory sealed or in NM condition. If it’s bad shape I’ll make note of it. If you’re concerned about condition as for pics and I will provide them.

If you’re interested in anything please leave a comment with what you’re interested in and your email address, and we can work out a deal. I will not make the comments public, so people will not get your email address or any other info, but I will be able to see it in order to reply to you via email. The subject line of such email responses will be “Stitches and Grooves record sale.” any questions or concerns about anything up for sale feel free to ask. I’m pretty firm on prices but if you don’t like a pice comment with an offer and we can try to work out a deal.

Everything will be mailed in either an LP or 7″ mailer. I should have plenty to go around, but if I run out I will let you know before making payment. Opened records will be shipped outside the jacket to avoid seam splits. Factory sealed records will not be opened under any circumstances. I know how to package records for shipping, plenty of bubble wrap and/or cardboard inserts will be used to try to minimize damage as best as possible.

Jimmy Eat World – Integrity Blues

Posted: October 24, 2016 in Vinyl
Tags:

Jimmy Eat World’s eighth studio album, Integrity Blues, was released on October 21, 2016, with the band doing a ton of promotion for it. The band played a couple in-stores in the weeks leading up to the album’s release, gradually released songs from the album to drive up anticipation and released what has become their usual free promo 7″. This album is the band’s heaviest sounding to date. It’s still has its Bleed American influences/sound in sparing instances, but it’s a heavier album all around. It’s not a bad thing, but this album is definitely a grower rather than an instant favorite.

The album was put up for pre-order in early September, and something very unusual for Jimmy Eat World; there are variants for this album. It’s the first time the band has had variants for their album on initial offering. Before people jump down my throat feeling that “first time variant” statement is incorrect, realize I meant for the first pressing of an album and an album that wasn’t licensed out by some “label” to capitalize on the vinyl craze by re-pressing an album on fancy colors to make more money. To date there is only one variant however, so the band and label (RCA) didn’t go overboard trying to milk the album with four or five variants.

That one variant is turquoise limited to a whopping 3,000 copies. That might not seem like a lot for a band like Jimmy Eat World, but when you think about it most variants released are typically limited to 1,000 copies max.  Turquoise was exclusively available from the band’s web store hosted by Kings Road Merch (KRM). And from the few photos I’ve seen so far, I’m not sure turquoise is the most apt color to call the variant. I’ve seen one copy that looks blue and others that look translucent green; close to turquoise, but still not turquoise. Turquoise is a very unique and recognizable color to most people, it’s not straight blue nor green, but a mixture of both.

In all likelihood turquoise is the only variant, but Bull Moose listed their pre-order as “tar colored black vinyl.” What they meant by that is anyone’s guess, but I’m sure they suckered some people into buying/pre-ordering the album from them thinking it was another variant. Think about it people, what color is tar… But whatever their intent, I’m losing more and more faith in Bull Moose of late, as this is not the first stunt they pulled with misinformation. Turquoise is the only color with pressing info released. There are an unknown amount of black copies out there, but if RCA pressed 3,000 copies of turquoise then it’s safe to assume they pressed far more black copies.

The album is pressed as a single LP, and comes housed in a gatefold jacket with a full color insert. In another change of pace from past Jimmy Eat World releases, the record has a stock company center label, in this case RCA Records. This is the first time one of the band’s record has stock center labels since their debut album, Static Prevails. A download code is included with the record, but there is no separate card. The code is printed on the insert itself. This is the first record I’ve come across that has the download code printed on the insert, and it’s a move I can see many labels making to cut costs while not passing it on to the consumer.

This record is on the cheap side, costing $19 (before shipping) from KRM and Bull Moose, $18 (before shipping or any applicable taxes) from Amazon and around $20 from most indie record stores. If you shop around online you can find some distros that have it cheaper by a dollar or two. I can’t believe I’m saying that $20 is “cheap” for a single LP, but that is the harsh reality of record prices today.


In advance of Jimmy Eat World’s eighth studio album, Integrity Blues, a 7″ single was released, or at least it was anticipated to be released. The 7″, entitled Sure And Certain, was announced back in late August 2016 on the band’s official website, which also listed a pre-order link through Amazon with a release date of October 14, one week before the album’s release. I’m sure quite a few people pre-ordered the 7″ through Amazon as it was the only place to buy/pre-order it. But as time went on the 7″ was pulled from Amazon with no explanation.

As time wore on people forgot about the 7″ until Amazon pulled it and started cancelling orders on the 7″‘s release date of October 14. That move sent people scrambling on how to get the 7″. Lots of incorrect info was being spread from various sources; including the band themselves, their merch guys on tour, indie record stores, message boards, etc. Most of the incorrect info came from people who were misinformed, while others purposely lied to drive up business. Here is all the incorrect info out there. It was reported that the only way to get the 7″ was at a show on the band’s Integrity Blues tour if you pre-ordered the album (CD or vinyl) from an indie record store, but no mention of how to prove you pre-ordered it was made. Same people also said they bought a copy of the 7″ at a show. I contacted some indie record stores and was told it was a tour exclusive 7″. An indie record store owner (not one of the stores I contacted) said during an in-store the band played there that the 7″ was exclusive to them, no not an indie store exclusive promo like most of these free bonus items are, exclusive to his specific store.

All that was despite the fact that people at the Northeast in-stores the band played leading up to the album’s release were either given the 7″ at the in-store or would get it when they went back to pick up the copy of the album they had to buy in order to gain entry into the in-store. And that I got this 7″ on the album’s release day (October 21) for free from my local indie store with purchase of Integrity Blues, which also coincidentally held one of the pre-release in-stores earlier in October. So supplies of this 7″ seem to be not even close to exhausted, as my local store got more copies of it well after the in-store they held with about a 100 peeople capacity. So the only definitive way to get this 7″ that I am aware of is/was from an indie record store after buying the album Integrity Blues.

The 7″ features “Sure And Certain” on the a-side and has an exclusive b-side from Integrity Blues on the b-side; “My Enemy.” The 7″ comes in a regular 7″ jacket, but it’s made out of very thin card stock. No download card/code is included with the 7″, so the only way to get an MP3 of the exclusive b-side is to have a USB turntable or wait for somebody to rip it and post it online (which already happened, but the guy deleted the file after a few days and not many people took notice, but I did). It’s clear why “My Enemy” was left off the album, as it doesn’t really fit the vibe of Integrity Blues. But it’s still a good song regardless, it’s more reminiscent of older Jimmy Eat World albums.

The only outstanding Jimmy Eat World release to not get pressed on vinyl finally saw the light of the day in early 2016. The Stay On My Side Tonight EP was pressed on 150 gram black vinyl and comes with an insert and download card. The only reason I make mention of the record being 150 gram is because the hype sticker on the perforated poly bag the 12″ EP comes sealed in makes mention of it. All copies come with a download card. No word on pressing info, but expect it to be in the thousands because it’s a major label release.

There are some big question marks surrounding this release as some people received copies of the record with glaring errors. The biggest problem lies with the track listing on the back of the jacket, which has the track listing broken down wrong. Instead of the proper two tracks on Side A and three tracks on Side B, the copies of the record in question have three tracks listed on Side A and two on Side B. The records have the correct track listing however. Mark Trombino’s (EP’s producer) name is also spelled wrong on the insert. It’s important to note that people receiving copies like this are in America and multiple people have reported having the same errors. Some people are dubbing this an error pressing, which is obviously the case, but more light needs to be shed on it. Some people are speculating these error copies were meant to be distributed in Europe or were pressed in Europe to be sold there. But that can’t be correct because there is no Euro pressing of this EP.

The likeliest answer to the error pressing is that it’s simply an error that was caught somewhere in the middle of production. This release had quite a few delays, with the release date pushed back multiple times. These delays likely stemmed from the errors with the track listing on the back of the jacket. So what likely happened is that a small amount of copies with the error mistakenly got sent out to distributors. This release has not been recalled, but the problems has obviously been corrected since my copy, and plenty of other peoples’, do not have the error. So far the label has been mum about the situation, but I don’t know if anyone has contacted them or the band about the problems.

My copy does not have the track listing error but does have Mark Trombino’s name spelled wrong on the insert. Instead of Trombino it reads Trobmino. People who have the CD version of Stay On My Side Tonight say this same spelling error is on the CD credits as well. So the layout was taken directly from the CD version and just upscaled to fit an LP. It’s the third mention of Trombino’s name that is misspelled, under the percussion credit on “Disintegration.” I have included pictures of both the correct and error jackets below, with the correct jacket picture coming first.

A few days after posting this a pink variant was announced, which is limited to 1,000 copies and only available through Jimmy Eat World’s web store hosted by Kings Road Merch. Whether or not this new pink variant is a new pressing, which would be the second overall is unknown. It’s either that or the label held on to these pink copies for weeks. If that is the case it’s somewhat surprising they didn’t put it up for pre-order along with the black copies, but holding back the pink copies could be a sales tactic to drive up sales of the black variant. It’s up in the air right now which scenario is correct.

I advise everyone to not buy anything from Kings Road Merch (KRM) from here on out because they now only ship records via priority mail, which costs at least $11 depending on where you live. They are not offering media mail any longer. And we all know you can ship a record from anywhere to anywhere in the country for under $4 via media mail. I first noticed (most people noticed when these new colored Jimmy Eat World variants were announced) KRM made this switch around the holidays (2015) and I hoped it would be only for the holiday season, but turns out it’s permanent. KRM claims it’s to prevent damage to records and keep impatient people at bay. This is their statement regarding it: “We are no longer offering media mail due to its incredibly slow delivery times and high rate of damage to orders.” Complete BS; 90% of the time records arrive undamaged via media mail. And guess what KRM, records can still arrive damaged via any method of delivery. We all know this is profit driven. It’s also sad, pathetic and a little hilarious that you can order from KRM’s European distro and shipping will be cheaper than buying domestic.

Jim Adkins – Hell 7″

Jim Adkins, lead singer of Jimmy Eat World, released his first solo studio material of his career in 2015. He has done solo tours and one off shows here and there over the years, and there was Go Big Casino, but these three 7″ singles mark his first true solo efforts. They were released as part of a singles series of sorts, because if you ordered the physical records instead of the digital files only you received all three 7″ singles all at once in one shipment. All singles in the “series” feature a new, original song on the a-side with a cover song on the b-side.

You could not buy any of the singles in the “series” separately, you had to buy all three in order to get one of them. There was also a bundle option that included a polyesters 7″ carrying bag. I have not seen pictures of the actually finished product, but from the mock ups in the web store the bag is black with pink lettering, has a zippered opening and a strap. This bag tacked on an additional $10 on top of the $20 for the 7″s themselves, and it also jacked up shipping price to over $11 from $5. By all accounts from people who bought the bag bundle it is pretty much pointless, so it seemed like a wasted $20 odd dollars. So I’m glad I passed on the bag despite me typically being a sucker for things like bags, boxes, slip cases etc.

The third single in the “series” was Hell. The title song is on the a-side with the b-side being a cover of the Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Want To Have Fun.” The third single was pressed on red vinyl limited to 1500 copies.
