So, I've had this sealed Just Push Play LP for many years. I really like the album art. Hajime Sorayama did a gynoid resembling Marilyn Monroe.

IIRC got it from a record store in WI many, many years ago. I also have an open one that I've played. The sealed one has an Amoeba tag on it ($10.98 + tax!) with what appears to be an anti-theft strip on rear. The tag and strip are taped over, but the overlay tape doesn't go all the way around the edge of LP jacket.

I don't see any ragged edges on the shrink film under the tape like it's been opened and wonder if anyone here has seen an LP tagged like this from Amoeba? Or is it just an elaborate fake sealed LP job?

    No idea on the authenticity. I think you showed that rekkid to me once--I refrained from opening it with some difficulty.

    But I do know you enjoy some female robots. So here's a couple links for your visual (and hopefully auditory) pleasure! (Not Clubhouse so links don't turn into vid windows here, sadly).

    If I ran across that at a store, I would not consider it still sealed. With that said, for that price? I'd buy it, open her up and play the rekked.

    My rule of thumb is if the stickers are outside the shrinkwrap it's probably legit sealed.

    Strip it and play with it.

    :D

    I already have an opened one in real nice shape. These can sell for crazy prices sealed. I have a fair offer for it, but they were questioning the tape/anti-theft strip.

    Not quite on the same frequency but…..

    I had a lot of lp’s that I wouldn’t play because they were still sealed. Getting older I finally came to grips with myself wondering what the hell?

    Open her up & enjoy your Lp as Emlyn said 😬
    It just took me a long time to realize that.
