  1. Agreed! I think a collected b-sides comp would be great to see eventually but for this anniversary release the bonus disc kind of perfectly ties the mood of the records together so I'm glad they went that route. I loved the OKNOTOK cassette as well for similar reasons, I find that I actually listen to that as much as OK Computer but that may largely be due to how much I've already listened to that record in my life.
  2. Excited to hear this is getting a slightly wider release as I missed out on the Important Records Kickstarter project. Does anyone know if this is the exact same release just on a different label? The Third Man press release doesn't mention it being co-released with Important but on the surface it seems like it's exactly the same... https://thirdmanrecords.com/news/harry-bertoias-complete-sonambient-collection-due-december-10-2021-exclusively-on-vinyl
  3. This is a quote from the black release, it's sort of buried as a reply: "my copy has a constant whooshing noise that's at a low volume, at least on side A. it's really noticeable in the beginning when there's no/minimal guitar, but as it goes on you don't really hear it over the music. That could be how the original is, since there is that tape noise, but mine was definitely whooshing and not a static hiss" This was almost my exact experience with the cloudy pressing as well so I guess it's reasonable to conclude it's not a variant exclusive issue but obviously hard to say how pervasive it might be. Based on the similar experience with Amplifier Worship posted above it sounds like it could be bit of luck of the draw. I will say the other Boris reissues I've purchased have all been great
  4. There's mentions of it in all three of the posted variants, before posting I hadn't noticed it being mentioned in the black but it popped up there too that was my main curiosity I guess. Most people just comment on noise issues that are understandable with something with such long quiet sections
  5. After spending a couple listens with the "mistake" variant, there's a sort of a troubling "whooshing" noise, especially noticeable throughout Side A, I see on discogs that this is a not uncommon issue. I'm wondering if anyone with the other variants, especially just regular black could comment on the noise level of their pressing. Debating about whether or not to send this back in hopes of a better sounding pressing or if this issue is just across the board and I just keep the one that looks the best. Third man is so hit or miss with the quality issues
  6. FYI The final remaining copies of Trout Mask Replica vault exclusive pressing are up for sale in the Vault Store. I missed this the first when it was released but have an active membership still from the Bob Dylan box vault package so I was happy to grab a copy. Also just received the Vault exclusive pressing of Boris' Flood which I'm very happy with. I'll never get why they don't use lined inner sleeves in all their releases but that aside I feel like the pressing quality is slowly getting better at the Third Man plant
  7. Just picked these up, this isn't my favorite of her records but so far it might be my favorite of the demos discs. I'm amazed there's not more of a buzz surrounding these releases that have been steadily rolling out. In my opinion it's easily the best reissue campaign outside of the Neil Young Archives Releases in terms of audio and pressing quality.
  8. I'm not sure if this has been answered elsewhere but I couldn't find a definite answer. Does boomkat charge for pre-orders right away or when they ship? Definitely interested in some of these Caretaker represses
  9. Do Udiscover and and Sound of Vinyl typically send out shipping notices?
  10. Awesome, thanks for the heads up. I was able to grab all 6 of the PJ Harvey Reissues for under $90. Glad I waited on those!
  11. Has anyone gotten their Secretly Society version of this yet? Usually they go out the first week of August but I haven't seen any out yet
  12. Yes but mine doesn't work, I haven't e-mailed Secretly Canadian about it yet but I'm guessing maybe those won't be activated until the August release date?
  13. Yeah I hadn't received a shipping notification or anything so it was a nice surprise
  14. Got my copy in the mail yesterday, amazing record and nice pressing. After a couple listens I'd say it's really unlike anything else he put out, short, meditative and almost gospelly. Great compliment to the rest of his solo catalog
