When the Wantlists started in the early '90s there was only Usenet and email. There was no eBay, no GEMM, no Amazon. The Cat was found only in back-issues of Record Changer and Weirdo. And now when we look around we realize that it's been a great run but our useful days are way, way behind us, so we're bidding the web a fond adieu.

In the meantime, may we suggest sitting back with the amazing collection The CAT On A Hot Thin Groove, brought to you by our pals at Fantagraphics? It pulls together six years of Gene Deitch's cartoons featuring the jazz-obsessed record collector, in a gigantic oversized edition worthy of any coffee table.
