OMG OMG OMG!!! The most HEARTLESS, BRUTAL USED-LP listing in history!!!

I was refreshing my memory to make sure that it was Greg Calbi who had mastered the North Star LP of Cheryl Wheeler's self-titled début album. So I checked the credits on the Discog page for that LP.

I then noticed that a seller on Discogs had paved his own personal Highway to Hell with this astonishing used-LP listing (and also, he wants $200 for that LP--that's bonkers):

Cheryl Wheeler - Cheryl Wheeler (LP, Album)

Media Condition: Near Mint (NM or M-)
A nearly perfect record. The record should show no obvious signs of wear.
Sleeve Condition: Near Mint (NM or M-)

ORIGINAL U.S. PRESS. STORED UNDER DARK DRY CONDITIONS - FOR 38 YEARS.
THE BEAUTIFUL FRONT COVER DISPLAYS A PENSIVE CHERYL WHEELER - SITTING,
POSSIBLY SUICIDAL - IN AN EMPTY ROOM. LABELS ARE CLEAN. VINYL IS PRISTINE.

Yikes.

My violin teacher at Brown used to quote the Latin proverb "Homo homini lupus," which means "People act like wolves toward other people," but this one really takes the cake.

Sheesh.
