Completely agree. 3 LPs, great packaging, it sounds killer, and it’s Wildflowers. 180 gram or not, this is an awesome reissue and $40 is more than reasonable. I can’t believe anyone is complaining abo

Why are you assuming that this is being done by someone else. No info exists of that this is a record that came out when vinyl was dead and thus is pretty limited causing the price tag if you want i

I spun this last night and it sounds so damn good. So glad I picked this one up.

Not sure who vinlymnky is but they've got it cheap(er).  Looks like the 9LP is already sold out there.

Edit:  looks like they're a subscription service.

Bullmoose winds up being .02 cheaper

For real. The new Springsteen and Japandroids live LP are each $35 and they’re only 2 LPs. Complaining about the price point on this triple LP is absurd.

After listening to the high quality of Wildflowers (and only Wildflowers, none of the "Rest), I retract my previous statement. This is a $29.99 set, tops. 

You're getting a double LP, cut all-analog, of an album that routinely went for $200+ for decades. (And that original press was cut from 44.1 kHz files.) 

You're also getting an extra LP of unreleased songs, also cut all-analog.
And you're paying slightly more than the cut-from-digital 2LP release that's now standard for every single major artist. (Even the ones who could EASILY afford to go AAA.)

 

But yeah, you do you.

Yeah, $40 for an audiophile 3 LP pressing is pretty reasonable IMO. 

 

 

But if you aren't feeling the album, then I could see how its a ripoff.

I'm just joking guys. Take a breath. It's kind of akin to the exact origins of my stupid username. Actually, @filthyrich, your argument is very close to exactly my argument on the origin of my name. My first post was kind of taking the piss. 

tl;dr - this release is great.

I preordered from Amazon 4 weeks ago and it says still awaiting shipping date, anyone else still waiting on Amazon to ship?

I'm with ya, ordered mine Aug 24, still no word...They were in stock when I ordered, ran out at the beginning of this month (except for third party sellers).  Not sure where all those copies are.
