I believe that you'll need to give a VMP member your email and then they'll have to use a VMP referral widget to send you a link. I can do that for you if you'd like to PM me your email address.

Actually, as seen above, they do have links you can copy and paste. I thought it was just via their email widget. My $10 credit link is http://fbuy.me/dGfOp.

You should just check out the new deluxe Sabbath reissues then. I'm not sure how much the VMP one is, but you can get a 180 gram black 2xLP with bonus tracks for like $30.

If I don't end up with early pressings, I'd be fine with the single LP 180g from Rhino which can be found for under $18 a piece. No need for the deluxe editions.

I've seen this around for a while but haven't been interested enough to sign up, mostly because being in the UK postage stretches my tolerance to albums I might like only a little or not at all.

 

The crate thing looks interesting though so can someone tell me how I can dip in and out as it's not obvious on the website, if that means cancelling and then re joining then how does that work? And if anyone wants to refer me for the $10 credit just PM me.

I am almost certain that the $10 referral credit only works if you sign up for the Album of the Month membership and not the crate portion. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, also they bill you on the second of each month. Normally if you go to the Vinyl Me Please forum on the 1st of each month they will have a list of what is going to be in the store that month. Hope this helps.

April Album of the Month

Fugees - The Score (Deluxe 20th Anniversary)

"The Score lives in that narrow archipelago between the end of the boom-bap Golden Age and the rise of the Jiggy Era. It’s both the last of the old tradition and the first of the next generation. It helped bring hip-hop to the mainstream without the crass commercialism that mars most attempts. No East Coast hip-hop album had previously combined dulcet melodies with such hard beats, crossing over with experimental pop that catered to the masses. It’s the most safe, seditious record ever made." -Jeff Weiss

Exclusive VMP-edition features:

Gatefold, 2LP split-color black & gold vinyl

Bonus gold 7" with 3 tracks never before on vinyl

12" x 24" fold out poster

12” x 12” Original Art Print from Kenyatta A.C. Hinkle

I wish they would include number pressed

I think it's just based on how many they sell within the month timeframe. At the end, that will be the number pressed.

No, because:

1. Vinyl production turn-around time isn't that fast, i.e. 4-6+ months not 1 month

2. If that were true, then they wouldn't have extra copies to sell in the member store the following month(s)

So...

They just announced that The Fugees: The Score is this month's vinyl. That happens to be my favorite hip-hop album of all-time.

I already own it, but it's a shit pressing. Probably the angriest I've ever been upon needle drop actually because it wasn't a cheap album either. So my question is... how likely is this to pop up on discogs? I managed to get a Menomena pressing easily enough but I feel like that was a lot more niche then this...

Gonna have to find a friend who wants my current copy at a discount....

I didn't see it brought up in this thread but VMP is testing an exchange program where they allow you to take the future AOTM and exchange it for one of the 2015 AOTM titles only.  For example, if you didn't like next month's Fugees, you could contact them and they would allow you to substitute it for Father John Misty or Black Sabbath.  Of course it has to be done before shipping, etc.  Might work well if you're a part time lover, but if you were in it for the full year of 2015, then it doesn't really have much value as you already have everything.

Also, is it not possible to sift through the shop before joining? I wanna see what's still available if I drop that 6 dollars for that crate membership.

If you go to this page of their forum it will tell you everything that was still available in the store as of yesterday.

http://forum.vinylmeplease.com/index.php?threads/apr-16-member-store-vinyl-picks.3132/page-69

Also normally if you go to their forum on the first of every month and look in the next month store thread, it will tell you most of the exclusives and titles that they will be stocking for that month.
