  1. Wow, had no idea. The Jade Tree anniversary campaign seemed underwhelming to me and a lot of stuff rumored never happened. Maybe it's for the best, although it stinks the artists may not benefit. Jade Tree was a 50/50 split with royalties and their bands.
  2. Where did you learn this? Jade Tree seems to have newer releases or are they closing up?
  3. The entire set of records was $200 in store. eBay craziness aside, the staff was saying it will be a very good year to be a Vault member.
  4. The line doesn't seem more than a few blocks as of now. Should be win/win for everyone.
  5. It's a good way to show what they are capable of doing as a pressing plant. I've seen pictures of color vinyl prototypes (besides the offering for tomorrow) so I'm sure this is just the beginning of people camping out days in advance for Third Man rare stuff.
  6. Id like to think they are pressing a large volume because they have the equipment to do what they want and not have to ship finished records, but collectible vinyl is desirable and it would be a huge bummer if they ran out by noon.
  7. Two listings for vinyl on bandcamp and only deluxe is on color vinyl.
  8. Got my copies in the mail yesterday. Glad I went back for a few others - they turned out nicely!
  9. That's a lot of Peter Hook and a lot of picture discs.
  10. The most recent Swervedriver album is excellent. My favorite reunion output of any of the above bands, and I look forward to new music from all of them.
  11. $250 was the number I had in mind as well. When the third man mobile store came to Royal Oak, they priced the rarer items at increased prices so this shouldn't be any different.
  12. Rhino has done the first and third albums in the past few years. The songs on the above compilation are from those records as well as the second one. The first couple songs are from a single I believe (don't have them on vinyl currently).
  13. Run Out Groove is associated with Warner/Elektra/Atlantic so their catalog that hasn't been reissued yet may just see the light of day. (Didn't see any posts related to this label or this release, apologies if I missed it.) From their site: "1. Each month we will post additional potential projects and ask for your input on which title should be pressed next. 2. The project chosen by majority vote will be made available to order for 30 days, after which the title will go on press. Orders will only be taken within the 30 day pre order window. So please be aware of open and close dates that we post. 3. When the pre-order window closes we will announce the quantity to be pressed in an individually numbered and limited edition. The record will be delivered direct to your door and to participating retailers." The Motor City Five via Run Out Groove Each 1LP is pressed on 180g, multi-color vinyl, is individually numbered and strictly limited, based on pre orders. Also included is a 12x12 insert with photos and liner notes. "The MC5, born out of the ashes of industrial Detroit, recorded only 3 full length albums and lasted less than a decade but left an indelible stain on the world of Rock & Roll both musically and culturally. Like their Detroit brothers The Stooges, they helped lay the initial ground work for the punk movement with a simple, hard driving, high energy, loud and gritty style of Rock that includes elements of garage rock, hard rock, blues and psychedelic rock. This one time only Run Out Groove release is the first legitimate vinyl compilation of the band’s Elektra and Atlantic recordings and belongs on every Rock collector’s shelf, if not for the sonic music assault then for the audacious packaging alone. Each record comes in a single sleeve, silver foil, old-school tip-on Stoughton paper wrapped jacket. This record provides a killer ensemble of tracks from their halcyon days, including the original uncensored version of “Kick Out the Jams.”"
  14. Definitely going to make a trek downtown for this but am expecting to wait in insane lines. Regardless, Third Man doesn't cut corners and the whole event should be fun (just not easy on my wallet.)
  15. I had an experience a few years ago with a different Samiam preorder from Unless You Try. My order was delayed because it was mistakenly added to another pre-order queue for a Gameface record and they didn't catch it. I didn't get any response until I opened a Paypal case - this was after multiple email attempts received no response. Paypal eventually refunded me and the record showed up a month later. I sent the money back to the label and just resolved to not order from them again. Sorry this is happening to you.
