  1. Crossing my fingers for the lottery, thanks for the heads up was in my promotions tab of gmail. I might have missed my chance. I would really love to get one, they are my favorite band and I have a pretty sizable collection but will probably spend the rest of my life trying to get even 1 of each release
  2. Wow the JD test was "only" $800 last night was actually trying to find a copy for less than $100 last night and stumbled upon that while spinning Axe To Fall, I thought it was crazy the Blue 1st pressing was spinning was up to $70+ that I bought at half priced books a couple years ago for $8.99. Surely we are due up for a redux or anniversary repress soon enough. Can't believe it hasn't seen a pressing in over 5 years
  3. That's disappointing to hear but what I expected. I'll buy something else and just pick up the CD for a buck. Thanks
  4. Anyone pick up the Group Sounds reissue? I'm interested but have been pretty underwhelmed with the sound on both Anniversary reissues and The Senses Fail from RSD last year,
  5. Got Laura Nyro, Rick Astley, Bardo Pond and then grabbed an Art Pepper at closing for the sweet deep employee discount. Also got the Tennis System in the mail from the GF Record Club. It was crazy working this year, the Taylor was a fiasco so we did a raffle and are giving our 14 copies away for free. Only felt sorry for one poor girl who stood in line for hours and was told the wrong info and to just get there early, so I may have folded her entry in a certain way to ensure it was pulled.
  6. They will likely settle around $150-$200 (pure speculation) but with a nostalgia release of this magnitude it's liklely 90%+ of orders are to people who have been wanting this for years and would not want to sell after lusting after originals for so long. I finally got a chance and the whole set sounds wonderful (for what it is) and the packaging is otherworldy. One of my favorite records purchases in a long time, 13 year old me would hi five me so hard right now. I hope everyone is enjoying their sets just as much and I hope the unlucky few are able to find one for a reasonable price, I wouldn't even be mad if they did another run.
  7. I saw someone post order #15500ish so probably closer to 16k sets. I knew resale prices would be at least double but looks like closer to 5 to 6 times that now, it could tame down and I hope it does for those who missed out since so many were listed before many of us even received them. Just got mine today, washed all 7 and going to break into the set after they dry. I am blown away with the packaging and everything looks perfect minus a couple light scuffs on the GI disc but I doubt it will even sound. I'll never throw down for originals so short of getting lucky at a garage sale/estate sale this is the closest I'll ever get to owning these in their original format. Been wanting these all since I started collecting and the Slinkees bonus single is icing on the cake
  8. I only had a tracking number since the 13th and then it changed to out for delivery today, so hope it arrives safe and sound soon!
  9. I Think I got Monster Movie - Transistor (which I don't own and love Slowdive/Beachy Head). The number written on the sleeve is the catalog number right? edit: Nevermind It was indeed the title in question, and was in the runouts if I had bothered to think of that.
  10. Will do, I'm hoping for Appleseed Cast, Night School/Fawning etc, Dott or Whirr in which case I'll definitely keep but I'll be in contact.
  11. I'll keep you posted if I get the Toman I grabbed the last mystery test pressing off bandcamp. I have yet to get one with any record club shipment but im only towards the end of my 2nd sub so far and have been very happy with my experience thus far.
  12. I would go for PSB Alpha 5s they are well designed and sound great at around $450 https://www.psbspeakers.com/product/alpha-p5-bookshelf-speaker/
  13. Tired Of Tomorrow still sounds like hot garbage, can't put lipstick on a pig in this case, holy crap is that compressed. I still love this album though, great songs!
  14. Mine showed up yesterday, got a chance to spin just now and it sounds great, real punchy low end and a big sound stage, I love the Delfonics cover. I know 33 vs 45 but I followed up Great Dismal with the B-Sides tonight and the sound was much better to my ears. I still need to go back and review their back catalog with the new Clear Audio turntable.
  15. I've never surprised by plant delays anymore. With digital albums coming out next month and LPs in March and May you know it's bad. I kind of expected this to take longer, I think with the value per dollar I can wait, I have a feeling this will be done right and a worthy addition.
