Coalesce did a bunch of odd shapes for a 10" they released. They were off centered as well.

One of very few NWN releases that I never play, simply due to the weird format.

Generally I dislike odd formats, flexis included, because they offer no benefit over a standard format.

Did this come with an adapter to play?

No, you just center the hole over the tt spindle and it plays fine in that regard, at least with a decent turntable. The same holds true for 7"s with the "45-style" hole. You don't really need the adapter if you have a decent tt and slipmat.

The biggest issue with this one is that it's cut on a weird plastic stock (like those clear discs that come in a large spindle of CDRs) and doesn't play very well. That, and the fact that many automatic turntable will return before they get to the end of the record.

There's a couple of blokes I've seen who lathe cut old laser discs. I heard the quality of grooving these things is mostly shit though so no wonder this was YKs one and only attempt with a similar, CD record.
