Wake up, people! Pretty soon you won't even be given the opportunity to purchase that Wild Life super deluxe bauble. If only there were a hero to guide us and tell us what to do. Wait! Here's a natural born leader, a man with a plan indeed. Take heed, SHites. The end times are crashing down upon ye.
We need to stock up on physical media while we have time and money. Physical media will be gone in the near future.
And if you are really poor you will be bartering for Macca cassettes.
2006-2010 I was regularly going to east village record stores, often looking for out of print McCartney CDs. Most of the people in the shops were unhelpful, some even rude, but there was one man who was just the sweetest. The store was very small, and the CDs were piled so precariously that I think even touching one would have caused some sort of violent domino effect. I mean, the racks/shelves were not even visible. He always remembered me, and would let me know that he hadn't gotten any "McCarthy" although one time he did get a London Town cassette. (didn't buy it, but it was still a nice change of pace compared to guys who didn't give a shit if they even had customers or not.)
He was also the only person willing to buy my uncle's 8 tracks. We weren't expecting more than a few bucks, if that, but no other store was willing to even take them for free. Between that and all the other crap we sold that day (this was after my uncle had retired from sanitation, and had emptied his locker which was basically a twenty year time capsule of mostly literal trash) there was enough money to cover lunch.
"The king is gone but he's not forgotten. This is the story of Stevie Hoffman"
They discontinued Target CDs and I did not speak out. The bank took away my copper-wired $25k cables and my Shakti stones and I did not speak out. Audio Fidelity declared bankruptcy and I did not speak out. Millennials stopped making physical media and I did not speak out. Because I'm retired.
Short version - an album they know well is getting a decent enough reissue from Vinyl Me Please. For me, this looks like a labour of love for an album that's a) really good, and b) difficult to find on vinyl. I'd be really stoked to get this if it was high enough on my wantlist.
But there's always something wrong which causes these pricks to declare it a disaster, or totally assume VMP is a con because they're too fucking lazy to click on the website to read more.
So, in order to buy this one, you have to join the club?
I might be interested in this release but I don't like joining music clubs where I have to buy releases within a certain time frame.
I’ll stick with my original unless more information regarding the mastering and pressing is revealed and makes it worthwhile
Green vinyl. Hmmmm.
Oh no, it's cut from hi-rez digital. Cue the strings:
Thanks for that info.
jeffmo789 is annoyed that they aren't putting albums out in the right order:
Is anyone else ticked off that this is being done outside of the official reissue program, which itself has been on hiatus for a couple years? An exclusive vinyl club?
Yes, The Healing Game deluxe is finally coming out but why not this one too? And about a dozen other OOP titles.
Continues to be difficult to be a fan of Uncle Van....
Satrus is sick of colour, for some reason.
Green or any other colour is a complete turn off for me. I wish this coloured vinyl gimmick would just go away!
I know I shouldn't get wound up by shit like this, but Jesus Christ, why don't these fuckers just fuck off?

SHite Heads hate:
Colored Vinyl 180 Gram Vinyl Digital Cut Vinyl Vinyl Picture Disk Anybody under 35 that buys Vinyl Kids that play Vinyl on Crosley Turntables Any Turntable costing less than $5000.00 CDs Streaming Music Clubs Juke Boxes XM Sirius Radio FM Radio Rolling Stone Magazine Michael Fremer All Mastering Engineers except Gray, Bellman, Diament, and Grundman Music Critics Non White Male Music Artists Female Music Artists Giles Martin Any non-audiophile remastered cd
These Killjoys hate anything fun about listening to music.
The only thing I see wrong with your list is "Michael Fremer," professional killjoy. SHites love the guy, plus no way could Fremer ever be considered "fun" on any conceivable level. (OK, maybe as a figure of fun.)
