commented on Colored Vinyl Ain't So Groovy, Says Curmudgeonly Music Editor Mike McGonigal
Yes, colored vinyl LPs are inferior to black...there's something...diminished about the sonic quality.
Agree that the explosion in reissues is pretty damn ridiculous. I think the nadir was when the "Rumours" reissue came out. Really? You can trip and fall in the gutter and still find 5 vinyl copies of that album.

Oh Max, surely you know that, in restaurant-speak, "...not a lease or financial issue..." means it definitely was a lease or financial issue.
RIP Kingfish. You lasted a long time for Seattle.

Hahaha, all this after the Slog spent the first decade of its existence trumpeting the need for food trucks hither and yon.
And though I'm grateful for the food truck explosion, like kesh said, for the most part I've found them to be enormously expensive for what you get.
