Clearance Vinyl

If you, like me, are caught in the paradox of being both a record collector and a cheapskate, check out Vinyl Collective's clearance section. All the records on the list are at wholesale prices, and there are probably at least a couple titles you meant to have already bought.
I picked up Mogwai 's Mr. Beast and The Hawk is Howling 2xLPs, and The Magnetic Fields The Charm of the Highway Strip all for under $45 including shipping (I also googled "vinyl collective promo code" and found a 10% off code).
The list is here.
