As hard as it is to believe it has been nearly twenty years since there were any cutout record bins in the United States.A whole generation has grown up since.

It indicated a cutout - a title dropped from the catalogue and sold at a 
reduced price. Unlike paperback and comic books, where the cover was cut 
off by the dealer and returned for credit, I believe this was only done 
to keep the cutout from being returned as a full-price purchase.
