    NapalmBrain got a reaction from jonnywreck in The Official 'Vinyl Me, Please' thread.   
    It's gotten out of hand, see every scorpio release. Quiet vinyl does not make an audiophile pressing, hell a well mastered record does not make an audiophile pressing. Living Stereo shaded dogs/mercury living presence classical records are audiophile, Belafonte "At Carnegie Hall" is audiophile, those boring ass direct to disc sheffield lab records are audiophile. I'd say Cowboy Junkies "Trinity Sessions" is audiophile, but a record needs to be well recorded and then well mastered to be considered an audiophile record. Some of the stuff MOFI/AP release aren't even truly audiophile because they weren't well recorded to begin with, as I stated earlier it's a real small cross section of well recorded and enjoyable music. I like all sorts of music that isn't well recorded but just because it sounds better than it has ever sounded doesn't make it audiophile if it was recorded in a less than ideal room without using top notch recording technology and proper mic placement (hell some people debate music recorded with more than one mic discredits it from being audiophile in certain parts of the internet)

    NapalmBrain got a reaction from ok. in PO NOW: Fiona Apple - Fetch The Bolt Cutters 2xLP AND When The Pawn... LP (from VMP)   
    bubble wrap/stiffeners can prevent seam splits in most cases, but they try to cut down on overhead. I got my black copy from the FA store today, still waiting on the VMP. I wish I had gone through the hassle and cancelled I could have bought a pearl copy for less than the price of  the black and got it a week sooner, it is what it is though

    If y'all into art/show prints...Landland just released one that was available at the band's 2020 Midwest shows. I received my copy just the other but have not taken pics yet...let's just though that it's a lot more stunning in person. 
     
    And it's ridiculously inexpensive.

    took me a lifetime to find both of these.   
    want to know something really heartbreaking?  Jeff M once posted these rodan / june of 44 test presses w. letterpress covers and names on them.
    I want one SO bad.

    I didn't realize I was already getting sent a copy and bought an /300 too. That's not numbered yeah but the club one is lol. I couldn't decide which variant was better so I just kept both. The Web is incredible

    the remasters are great and can be had for cheap through dischord and discogs. I have Talking Songs and Sound In Time and I'm quite pleased with the reissues.

    I would guess that a euro or us press exists but is most likely scarce, perhaps promo only and has yet to be added to the database. I've never heard of an instance of an american record only being pressed in Mexico

    Pretty much mandatory for discount trolls on summer break.  Dude fails to grasp why something like reading comprehension is a big deal in the real world, so nothing really surprises me at this point.

    Let me preface this by saying this thread is NOT meant for arguing. This is simply a list of bands and labels who are selling merch or auctioning off test presses to help with the current sociopolitical climate of the US. Please add links if you find them, and keep your negativity to yourself. 
     
    UPDATE: This list got so long, it looked cumbersome using this format. The ads were also splitting up the list which bothered me. Because the format is easier to view, I've moved this over to google drive!

    Camp out the night before.
    Complain about how cold it is.
    Share stories about the flippers who brought their entire extended family to get multiple copies of rare releases.
    Bitch about how you were fifth in line and there was only one copy of the one release you really wanted and the kid that was fourth in line got it even though he must have been in diapers when it was originally released and you've been a fan since 1997.
    Buy a half dozen records you really didn't need or want and that you can get for half the price a month down the road when the same store you camped out at is blowing out old RSD inventory.
    Spend 10x the retail amount for that one release you missed, most likely buying it on eBay from that same little brat that was ahead of you in line.
    Tell the board this is the last time you wake up early for Record Store Day.
    Do it all over again the following month.

    $15 is not bad, that is the best solo album I forked out $12 and it's a little noisier than I'd like the lighting in that shop makes it really hard to see light scratches. I have all of her solo albums including the one with the strawbs, I still need Fotheringay I should not have passed on the one at Euclid in St, Louis. Everyone needs more Fairport! It's a shame most people start and stop with Nick Drake when it comes to british folk and there is so much amazing music from that era to explore
