The vinyl manufactured during the 70s oil crisis are nearly flexi-discs, but still sound great.

It's only the grooves that matter. Thicker discs are just a marketing thing.

Isn’t the point with thicker discs that you can have deeper grooves for a louder/clearer master? Also weight might have some effect on stability of rotation speed and therefore playback sound quality i guess.

To a point, but the grooves are never deeper than those you could make in a Flexi. Two sides obviously doubles that. 

 

I'd suspect if the weight is adding anything to the stability of rotation then it's marginal and would not fix any issues with your turntable.

Is there anyone here who can help me track down a rare-ish record? My girlfriend is starting a record collection and she’s a big fan of Aussie singer Kate Miller-Heidke, particularly her Nightflight album. I want to get her a copy of it on vinyl for her collection (it was released on vinyl in 2012, possibly only in Australia), but it turns out it’s incredibly hard to find. I have googled to no avail - can anyone help me track down a copy? Help me Rllmuk, you’re my only hope.

None for sale on Discogs but one sold in December for €100+. 
 

Your best bet would be to set up an alert for that one vinyl version and fingers crossed from there.

What Kingpin said plus set up an eBay search alert.
