https://www.juno.co.uk/products/my-bloody-valentine-loveless-deluxe/821851-01/   $39 shipped to the states

I’m not sure if they were trying to send the message of “here you go have three you baby” or if they genuinely thought “if we throw 3 into the same box surely one of them won’t get beat up, right?”.

These reissues have rolled out with all the smoothness and clarity I've come to expect from My Bloody Valentine...

there is literally a 0% chance that these won't be available everywhere. i remember when i ordered MBV the night it went up for sale because i was so afraid it would go OOP. i have had so many opportunities to get a copy for like $20 or sometimes less in the last year. if you have patience, you don't have to spend $40 a pop on these.

Basically this.  Secondary Amazon sellers and Discogs will eventually have these for way less than cost + $18 shipping.

remember when urban outfitters was selling MBV for $10? still makes me sad to think i could've bought 2 more records for the price difference of what i paid direct from the band and what UO eventually sold it for.

I got my MBV from one of those flash sales (Deepdiscounts?) for like $6, bundled with a bunch of other discounted, new records with cheap shipping.  I doubt I’d get that lucky with these reissues, but yeah.  Good times.  Considering the popularity and demand of Loveless, at the very least, I can’t imagine these will be tough to track down.

I’m sure they will. But I can see them not getting it until March/April. 

Yeah, I'd agree with that too.  The availability on these aren't too concerning to me at all – I plan to wait out a deal even if it takes a bit longer.  I understand that not everyone has the same patience though.

still not in my distro at work today, was doing my weekly order for LP/CDs. I think I'm going to wait until these get into peoples hands, I'd think at least a few shops ordered direct if nothing else and someone will have these for sale stateside, I just didn't want to do what I did for m b v and have had the option to wait 2 weeks and save $15

If they are charging that much for shipping to the US, there's no way this should take 28 days or whatever they claim on their website. Economy shipping for 2 records from the UK should not cost $36 in any universe. They better be using some kind of express/priority delivery.

Someone from the UK I follow on IG has had this for at least  a week, and I asked him how this version of Loveless compared to his other vinyl -and he has a decent setup - no answer from him and a bunch of people 'liked' my comment.  It seems many folks are interested in this verdict.

I love this album (and Isn't Anything), but I can wait another 2 years if necessary to get it for a less than current price due to UK shipping. "MBV" just never really clicked, not bad, but I'd have to find a $6 deal like Derek.

I also doubt my current TT/cart/stylus is good enough to detect a difference,  but I might be wrong.   Our ears only know digital/CD.  Planning on a TT upgrade eventually since it seems I am back into vinyl for the long haul.
