Not too surprising those ended up being first to arrive. Most of FAT's euro variants have been showing up almost a month (or more)  before the US versions. I ended up ordering the UK versions too, so I'll get a chuckle if they arrive to me in the US before SP gets the US variants.

Most of Fat's records are pressed in Europe and because of the decrease in flights between Europe and the US they're being shipped from Europe to the US by boat and then on a truck to Fat from the port. The situation would potentially be different for every label though I think most go through Pirates Press/GZ.

My point exactly. Pretty sure most of Fat's stuff is through Pirate's Press, and almost everything LTJ have put out in recent years has been pressed by them as well.

What I'm saying is that while these records are pressed in Europe, it's up to the individual label how they get to the US AKA whether or not they're going to pay the exorbitant prices to have them flown over, but also where they end up in the US. Fat's stuff gets shipped to LA and then trucked to SF. That's a shorter trip than if Smartpunk's stuff ends up in LA and has to get trucked to Orlando, or faster if they fly it from there.

Amazon US is selling the red/yellow split variant. Says it will ship out nov20. 

thanks for this, I didn't wanted to order these solely based on nostalgia factor, but I'm relistening B is for B-Sides after like 5+ years and it is still the best LTJ "album", so ordered both from importcds, which came out 60 bucks with intl shipping, not too bad.

 

also B is listed as "Limited transparent blue vinyl LP pressing" which is strange cause there is no mention of this color on the smartpunk site.

I’m guessing it’s the UK variant (trans blue with black splatter)

Not sure about that. This is what the shop in St. Pete shows when you look up the upcoming releases. Same clear orange Anthem and clear blue B-Sides shows up for some other retailers including Popmarket. The UK B-Sides isn't clear blue, it's solid blue with some black swirl.
