I just recently had to replace my turntable I'e owned since 1986 because the motor finally gave out and I couldn't track down a replacement part. It broke my heart. You can pick up a Sony from Best Buy for around $99.

first post...bringing this thread back from the dead!

i collect vinyl, and i'm now working on a ben collection! today i placed a few orders for the earlier BF5 singles (summer, underground, brick, battle). earlier this week i got the self-titled LP in the mail. maybe i'm working backwards on this (in terms of difficulty to find??). i also have SFS, the live record, and preordered the deluxe WTN.

anyway, i had a question... which 7" is jackson cannery on? is it rare or am i just slow? sorry, i'm a relatively new ben folds fan. excuse my n00biness.

The print run was about 500 (if I'm not mistaken), and this is what served as a demo tape for Ben Folds Five rather than a proper studio demo to shop around for record executives. They're hard to come by now, and have sold on eBay for as little as $75, and as much as $450. Original Jackson Cannery 7" singles have long been considered the holy grail for Ben Folds fans. Frank used to have a section for it on his site, but that seems to have 404ed.

The fact that you've been able to successfully track down a copy of the selftitled means something. Those regularly go for 200+ on ebay. Something my budget can't afford. And for some reason Rockin the Suburbs has been one that I still have not been able to get. I, myself, do not worry about the singles though, that's probably due to the fact that we in the US don't buy them much. I own one single, and it's the Christmas one, cause it's the only place it even exists.

there's the page about the jackson 7". is that version of "eddie walker" the one floating around on the beginnings, or is it actually pretty much unheard?

sweet. thanks for the info, guys!! the s/t albums are weird. they'll go for $200 one week (almost $400 once, if i remember correctly), and the next week they'll go for $75, $91, etc... i got lucky and got mine for $52 (it just ended on ebay last week). granted, i've only been watching BF5 vinyl on the 'bay for a little more than 4 months. chances are i'll never track down that jackson 7". agh!

The 7" version of JC is on NBP, with some of the intro cut out. This version of Eddie Walker differs from any other released version. I'll put the MP3s I made from my copy on WUWTL when I get back from vacation.

Okay, I'm back from the east coast and have uploaded both the Jackson Cannery and Eddie Walker tracks from the 7" to WUWTL.

These files are NOT digitally remastered. A friend of mine who works for a recording studio dumped them onto a CD for me a few years ago directly from my copy of the 7". I then encoded AAC files from the disk using iTunes. Any imperfections in the tracks are results of them coming off a record.

Enjoy.
