I think I own a few picture discs but I have no interest in getting more.
Waste of shelf space.

That's enough surly bullshit from me.

Is it a good sign when your wife send you links to various Kallax configurations?

It is. She';s a keeper. But you already knew that.

I have a Bowie pic disc for The Man Who Sold the World, it sounds like shit. After that, I dont buy pic disc anymore.

I looked into it further and I guess the new Junta splatter is not in fact a new cut.

Caught up in the hype, lol.

It's cool though, it does sound amazing and now I can keep my OG minty.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

Started to write this in the Sigma Oasis thread but really more a Vinyl thread question:

Is there anything special or interesting about split-color or splattered pressing when every fucking album has a split colored or splattered pressing?

I recognize that these tend to be limited but does that really reflect in the aftermarket pricing and, if you don't sell records, why does that even matter?

How many versions of Junta exist now?

I think phish has enough money, but if an artist offers a color variation through their own store that makes them more money, I can see that. Also, if that’s the only way to get a new remastered pressing for an out of print record I’ll take it every time. This happens with RSD pressings sometimes.
I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

This new arrival is "custom colored". I had no idea that the Canadians did not have a word for this shade of blue. Great album though.

I flipped a few things recently that were colored or “exclusive” that I have a perfectly fine black copy of.
People pay a ton for some shit.

This is just in. Custard Flux ‎– Oxygen

https://www.discogs.com/Custard-Flux-Oxygen/release/15908156

Quote
Limited Edition of 100. Gold&Grape vinyl.
Oxygen is the third Custard Flux release. Nearly all of the music on this album was recorded during the first few weeks of the Great Quarantine of 2020, which had a definite influence on the songs, and has become apparent to me as I sit here listening to the final mixes. Fortunately for me, the lockdown time was very productive. I'd like to dedicate these songs to all of the people world wide who lost their lives to the virus.

I'm eternally grateful to have a home recording studio, and the musicians involved had to have access to recording equipment as well. Files were shared, but thankfully none were sterile, and all were inspirational. The remotely recorded tracks were then mixed with my own, and mastered in Rabbithole Studio, Detroit. I Feed The Fire appears on the Echo Bonus CD, but this version has been remixed and features an alternate guitar solo by Vito.

Many thanks to Vito Greco, Timothy Prettyman and Walt Prettyman for their much valued input, Mars Williams (Psychedelic Furs, Liquid Soul) for playing saxophone, and to Gregory Chamberlin for the beautiful cover artwork.

VMP three month subscriptions are $60 right now.

September Essentials is gonna be Spritualized Ladies and Gentlemen, so yeah you probably don’t want to miss that.

Well damn, I just cancelled for the month because I didn't want John Mayer, and was only moldy interested in Prince Paul. However, I was expecting to resubscribe to get Spiritualized and Buena Vista. So I'm back in.

The Prince Paul is dope, moldy or not.

HA! Just now seeing this. Should've been "Mildly". I ended up resub-ing and grabbed Prince Paul. I'm glad I did too, because a few days ago I was able to finally grab a VMP pressing of Handsome Boy Modeling School. REALLY happy about getting one of those!  Plus, now I've also got Spiritualized and Buena Vista coming too!

Just got my copy of Spiritualized today. Sounds fan-fuckin-tastic! I only had time to listen to one side while throwing dinner together, so I played side-D, of course.

I forgot I had that.  Have only played it once.  Need to bust it out again.

In addition to the Sigma Oasis vinyl being put up on Dry Goods, they have also restocked the splatter Junta.
