Wish I had mine to confirm, but I'm still waiting. That's pretty lame if they're not gatefold, when it's been repeatedly advertised as such...

 

Anyway, show some more pics! What's the track-listing?

 

Here's the pics (full album): http://imgur.com/a/tK8eN

 

Haven't had a chance to spin it yet - but I cannot tell you the tracks, they aren't mentioned anywhere on the release...

 

Someone's going to have to listen and write them down I figure....

From Norman @ ION via Facebook:

 

"Hi Topher,

 

Yep, it is legit. Only available through us right now. Full album plus bonus tracks (mainly compiled from Cobra Strike albums), gatefold sleeve. Give us a call tomorrow at *** *** **** if you have any more questions. Best wishes!"

 

I asked about pressing numbers. Will let you know what he says.

 

Gatefold!

 

Hey topher - could you follow up on the gatefold aspect of this? What makes this the deluxe edition if it's not gatefold? just the extra songs?

 

Thanks!

You can shoot him a message through this account if you like.

But I can almost guarantee that it's the extra tracks that make this "deluxe", nothing else. I still don't have this in my hands yet, but from the pictures I've seen, it looks like heavyweight vinyl, maybe that's a part of it, too.

 

And to be honest, I kinda doubt there will be a re-run of these anytime soon. 1000 copies won't move very fast. So if anyone's holding out for a cheaper version, don't hold your breath.

 

I am mildly disappointed that the packaging isn't what we thought it would be, (especially at that price) but I'm just glad this exists, period.

I chatted with 'dophywas1/Ion Records' Amazon Merchant

 

Bonus tracks, unlisted but on Side 4

covert

inferno

brain gate

cs118

blue crystal

aluminum clouds 

 

info has been added to http://www.discogs.com/Buckethead-Population-Override/release/6603460

 

No "Deluxe Edition" sticker because they were poor quality and were coming off.

 

He said only one version of the LP -- when I said mine wasn't gatefold, he said it "has to be" -- I pointed him toward this forum, and said that while I didn't open mine, it looked to be not gatefold from the side and from the comments here.

 

maybe more to come if he writes back

i had a similar convo about the track list. I found it odd that it jumps around from album to album the way it does.

 

Good to know about the sticker too. was wondering about that.

 

This gatefold confusion is odd. seems like they don't know a lot about the product they are selling.

I told him again it was definitely not gatefold (and sent him the Wikipedia link for 'gatefold') and he agreed and said he would fix the descriptions of the vinyl.

It is NOT gatefold

 

Well, it is what it is.

 

But it kinda sounds like this guy (who owns a record store, and probably ships hundreds of records every year) was totally unclear on the definition of what a "gatefold" is.

 

For real?

 

Oh, well.

Big update:

 

Travis has culled together some leftover recordings and is releasing another Thanatopsis album! If he can move 300 of them, he can pay for a vinyl pressing of Axiology, as well as some other stuff.

 

Show some love.

awesome! 300 CDs isn't too lofty of a goal. I'll be sure to pick one up next paycheck!
