Remember back in 1968 when you
told your mom you wanted a Beatles
record for Chrisimss? Rsrnt?f?!b6r oo?n

"music by Enoch Light" In small print?
Remember trying to look pleased?
Maybe not. In any case, at one time or
another you probably ran into and
possibly had a bad experience with a
Many people shy away from the
discount or "cutout" section of a record
store. This is sad. Those people are
passing by one of the best bargains in
the music world.
The term "cutout" refers to a jacket
with a paper punch hole, rrisslng
corner, or some other part cut out.
True cutouts are records which hay
stopped selling mora than 1,CC0 copies
each year. The record companies recall
these LP's to their warehouses and the
jackets are raped. These fresh cutouts
are then sold to special distributing
companies which list them In flyers
sent to record shops. The shops order
the cutouts they think thsy can seii.
All black birds are not blackbirds and
all cutouts are not cutouts. They can be
heaped into four categories: true
cutouts, overstocks, budget labels and
Overstocks are albums which have
been pressed in too great a quantity.
They are handled just like true cutouts.
Budget label records, such as
Pickwick and K-Tel, specialize in
recording from master tapes (as.
opposed to live recordings by the
artist). The artist Is paid a royalty and
his music is butchered, usually to about
two-thirds its original length. Budget
label recordings make good pop
background noise for pizza palaces,
youth centers and anyone else who
doesn't care about ruining his stylus.
Goof-ups are goof-ups. They com In
a wide variety of styles and flavors
ranging from lack of communication
between major labels end their sub
divisions to a record suddenly regaining
popularity. The net result is a record
that is both a cutout and a current (at
'.full Dries). -
According to Terry Moore at a
downtown record outlet, the number of
cutouts was to decline last year. Unsold
LP's were to be recycled due to the
plastic shortage, which Moore says
doesn't exist. Actually, there are just as
many cutouts as ever.
Elaine Connely at another record
store says the shop will soon carry more
cutouts. Although artists receive no
royalties from these records, individual
stores make more money on cutouts.
And a distributor often enjoys as much
as a 50 markup.
The second best thing about a cutout
is the selection. Many specials can be
found nowhere else. If a record you
want is out of print, keep your eye on
the cutout section.

The best thing is, of course, the
price. A cutout usually starts at about
$2.40 and drops in price with each bit of
dust it gathers. Sample bargains
include Hendrix's Rainbow Bridge for
$1.93, soundtrack from The Magic
Christian for 69 cents and Edison's
Greatest Hits (Thomas Edison, that is)
for a dime.
The best bargains are found in
seemingly unlikely spots: drug stores,
supermarkets, dime stores, etc. The
best pickings are found In small or
medium sized towns. Hastings is a
cutout collector's paradise.
You know, buying a record for 69
cents is a nice feeling. Especially if a
friend paid $3.49 for the same disc three
