The mystery coloured vinyl for Change of Heart's "Smile" reissue has turned out to be pretty cool:

Yeah, I like it. I just wish they'd use lime-green for the second LP. Hoping for Steel Teeth on vinyl (my fave album of theirs).

P.S. Label Obscura's The Heavy Blinkers reissue just got released too but I didn't preorder cuz there was no incentive, just a straight-up reissue. I might pick it up in stores but I should listen to it again to see if I like the band as much as I did back in the day.

Ordered this with with the quickness.  Been after a copy of No Cities Left since I started collecting and am happy to be able to snag Gang and End too.  Good looking out!

Pretty cool set, I was also lucky enough to snag a signed Hollywood Bedtime when they went up earlier this year. 
Only one I need is No Cities Left, so I'll probably just wait for the wider release of that.

I scored Gang of Losers fairly recently at my local store (Rotate This), so if anyone is still looking for a copy of that, they're probably floating around. It's also still available on Amazon.

I posted this on the Tragically Hip thread, but I guess it's relevant here too: http://exclaim.ca/music/article/the_tragically_hip_treated_to_comprehensive_vinyl_box_set

 

Shipping just to Toronto is over $90, which I guess is not that surprising...

$500 box set with $90 shipping. I guess it is 13 albums, but yikes.

 

I'm sure these will end up in stores.

I don't know how new this info is, but the website has the tracklist for the 4th extra tracks LP of that The Dears box set:

 

Side A

1. Le Pauvre Chanteur From The South Shore (1998)

2. C’est Le Feeling (2001)

3. Lost In The Plot (Original Demo 2001)

4. Will You See The Light? (Instrumental 4-track demo 2002)

Side B

1. Lion’s Share/Howlin’ (Instrumental Original Demo 2004)

2. Lake Of Fire (Demo 2005)

3. There Goes My Outfit (4-Track Demo 2004)

4. Whites Only Party (4-Track Demo 2004)

 

I really appreciate how, to the best of my knowledge, they're all previously unreleased tracks.  Not so hot on the fact that it's demo-heavy but I can live with it. 

I also want to see their earlier, late 90s stuff reissued, as well as the EP songs, and the handful of b-sides. The album-only (except for the mostly-demos anthology lp) concept for this box set does make it a bit incomplete. Where my Orchestral Pop Noir Romantique at???
