  1. Since the Amazon thread constantly gets posted with non-Amazon deals, perhaps it is time that a catch all non-Amazon vinyl deals thread gets made. I assume a lot of the people that visit the Amazon thread do it so they can take advantage of Prime, and seeing posts unrelated to it can be annoying I guess. I don't really have any deals to post right now, but here are just some general cheap pages that can sometimes have good deals: Go Hastings Oldies
  2. Yeah, got mine last week too. The tracks on it were some of the best ones from the soundcloud dump. I've never seen Warp issues of RDJ Album and ICBYD in local shops here in the states (only the shoddy 1972 versions). These new issues look like they will be available domestically, which is nice.
  3. Cool to see these will be in print again, but it's too bad there's not a standard single disc 33rpm version of these. $40 is just too damn much for one album.
  4. Preorder for the 2017 series soundtrack has gone up.
  5. Album is awesome. Probably their best yet.
  6. Elliott Smith - Heaven Adores You $12 free US shipping
  7. Smiths available anywhere? Mildly surprised a release with 12,000 copies is this hard to find near list price.
  8. The blue Paranoid Android is beautiful. I hope this ends up turning out like that, but yeah, the descriptions say it's opaque.
  9. This is the real question. OK Computer deserves better than Rainbo
  10. I've seen some people get screwed by before, they oversold one of their signed editions in the past.
  11. Here are my overall thoughts on this: I sort of wish they opened the vaults more for this release. When the rumors about a deluxe OK Computer started making rounds, I fantasized about a Pet Sounds Sessions-esque release — Original album, new mix, instrumentals, acapella tracks, demos, b-sides, etc. All that’s new here is the remastering (which I doubt will be that significant) and the 3 unreleased tracks. While this new set includes the 8 studio b-sides, there are four b-sides missing that were on some of the CD singles. Two live tracks from No Surprises, and two remixes from Karma Police. I think the band are going for an “OK Computer Pt. 2” type release, which would make sense why they wouldn’t want to include those. The 3LP set is a pretty good value for $40, but the deluxe box set is not worth $100 more, in my opinion. Is a box, a cassette, a book, and more artwork really worth $100? We’ll see. This is the most expensive deluxe set Radiohead’s ever put out, so quite a high bar has been set. The wording regarding the remastering is really odd on the website: “all newly remastered from the original analogue tapes* *But why? The original analogue tapes are the highest definition version of the record, and nothing will ever beat them. However in the 20 years since the original release mastering technology has improved a lot, and with new equipment and techniques we can make a digital version that's an improvement of the original transfer.” So are they saying they’re digitally remastered? It sounds like they forgot to say “all newly digitally remastered” in the first part. Regardless, my Parlophone pressing of OK Computer and all of its 12” singles (plus the 7” of Paranoid Android) sound AMAZING. I highly doubt that this release will compare in terms of quality, but I hope it does. Pressing quality is a concern considering what happened with A Moon Shaped Pool. I was hoping for a complete b-sides box set at some point. With this existing, I don’t see that happening (until maybe 20 years from now!). Now I’ll just hope for boxes of the remaining albums, but they’ve already skipped Pablo Honey and The Bends, so… maybe not? Finally, they need to reissue the promo floppy disk:
  12. Apparently the blue is limited to 4000 US, 3000 UK, making 7000 total. A Moon Shaped Pool was limited to 9000, if I recall, and that is still easy to find and affordable. I don't think the blue vinyl will be hard to get a hold of come release day. I hope there isn't a gap in quality (Rainbo vs Optimal) like there was with the colored versions of AMSP.
  13. Well, the description of the box on W.A.S.T.E. does say: "The boxset is currently mail order only and may never appear in your local record store."
  14. I ordered the box, too. However, I'll probably cancel it before it ships because it's hard to justify spending $100 more for a box, book, and cassette. This is their most expensive special edition they've released and contains the least new material considering the only unreleased stuff is the three new tracks (available on the standard edition) and whatever is on the cassette.
  15. Does anyone have any idea what happens if you cancel your membership when you still have credit in your account?
  16. I signed up for a one month membership for Demon Days but I don't want Tidal. I have some credit in my account so I'm going to buy something from their store, so if I do all that and cancel before May 2nd, I won't get billed for Tidal, right?
  17. I bought a pack of 10" ones and I swear they caused hairlines that weren't there before. I'll certainly be sticking with MOFI ones for 12" records.
  18. Already seeing some decent priced listings on eBay and Discogs for the titles I'm interested in picking up. I think I'll wait until stores officially put them up (like 1234go or Amoeba) just so I can get them both shipped from one place to save on shipping.
  19. None of the stores near me are getting any of the four things I wanted. Oh well. Hopefully I'll get lucky and get them when places start to put them up online.
  20. In case anyone was thinking of picking these up:
  21. Here's the tracklisting 1. Losing A Whole Year 2. Narcolepsy 3. Semi-Charmed Life 4. Jumper (1998 Edit) 5. Graduate 6. How's It Going To Be 7. Thanks A Lot 8. Burning Man 9. Good For You 10. London 11. I Want You 12. The Background 13. Motorcycle Drive By 14. God Of Wine 1. Alright Caroline 2. Scattered 3. Slow Motion (Demo) 4. Semi-Charmed Life (Demo) 5. Kiss Goodnight (Demo) 6. Scattered (Demo) 7. Heroin (Demo) 8. Tattoo Of The Sun (2017 Version) And yes, they confirmed Alright Caroline and Scattered are new recordings on their Facebook. That means 3/8 of the bonus tracks are re-recordings. Ehh... Also, there's still some tracks left out that were available on CD singles: -Graduate (Remix) -Horror Show -Tattoo of the Sun (original version) -Losing a Whole Year (Remix) This looks pretty underwhelming, in my opinion. I'm happy with my standard album.
  22. i love import cds
  23. I've found Rainbo to be really consistent. consistently garbage
