Can anyone shed any light on why some copies of the 2007 pressing have paper printed inner sleeves and some have cardboard printed inner sleeves (similar to the 2015 repress)?
Any word on the quality of the original pressing of this album?
Sounds superb...dynamic range, very little noise, every bit as quality a pressing as other Kranky vinyl releases. I haven't heard the re-issue to compare, but I'm happy with the original pressing.
Hi, can anyone tell me how to distinguish between original and reissue LP? Mine has all the marks of the original (sticker number, says 2007 on the back etc) but I don't know if the reissue was an exact copy? Thanks
This and The´Tired Sounds of Stars Of The Lid´ are being finally reissued on 3xLP. You can already pre-order on Kranky's website.
When this get's reissued I hope Kranky uses the cover art from the CD. Not a big fan of the Vinyl sleeve...
I actually prefer the vinyl artwork over the CD, but to each their own.
i also prefer the cd artwork to the vinyl art
someone should sell me one of these. surprised more haven't popped up.
It's odd, there was about 10 copies which were all Very Good to Mint condition and they were stagnant on here for at least a few months in 2014. After Christmas passed, all were sold, so I suppose that's the only explanation. Either way, I had to wait over a month before another one was put up on here. Luckily I got an email notification when that copy was put up, so I purchased it within 10 minutes of it being posted (exactly $101). You should consider doing the same if you really want this.
Anyone have a copy they want to sell? I am willing to pay quite a lot.
