General CD/Vinyl/Cassette Thread

Well, I've been busy since the last time I've made a post!
Everything here is from multiple visits to my local thrift store and Saint Vincent de Paul's, the spring rummage sale at my local Methodist church, a different Saint Vincent de Paul's about a half-hour away down in the Wisconsin Dells and the usual Sesame Street purchases which are from eBay.

Didn't see the mention at once so I thought I had gotten another mention notification even though my name was nowhere to be found.

(ever heard of 'Original Master Recording' LPs @CousinMerl?)

Right off the bat, I don't think I have. Why do you ask? Guessing it is something kinda similar to the SHM-CDs (those specially mastered albums) I was talking about earlier but regarding vinyl records instead, hence why.

@CousinMerl I asked because I heard of 'Original Sound Recording' CDs but this is the first I've seen it dating back to as early as 1980 (which is when this LP was reissued) a few years before CDs were even a thing. And yeah, they're similar to those type of CDs you mentioned before.
@John95, I see. Really interesting that these Original Sound Recordings LPs are a thing. Thet 1980 release date makes you think: Seems like they did attempt remasters really early on, way before CDs started doing them.
