How are people liking this ? I got the OG, but was debating whether or not to ditch it for the reissue which supposedly sounds a lot better than the original. Plus it has the extra track. Thoughts?
Personally, I love everything about the OG.
Buy It Now price: US $50.00
Motherfucker. I didn't read the fine print and see there were only 1500 pressed. I have the OG, but still want the reish. Someone give up their copy!
check youre shops day, or pm me and i'll pick one up for you
I prefer gatefold to poster for a double Lp, though.
is the claim of limited to 1500 copies for real...seems that some limited pressed releases aren't really limited...check out mayer hawthorne 10inch or MRR-ADM malcolm catto joint. just wondering?
methinks some audiophile ass finicky bitches done snuck up in the strut
still waiting for any word on the bonus track. feelin it?
but I'm happy with my OG( in shrink)
disappointed I didn't grab an OG promo poster for 150 when I had a chance tho
I think I'm just going to post another reply with no reference to the extra track.
I have a theory that someday all those Scorpio reissues are gonna be worth big fat cash some day. Huh? Who's with me?
Sorry I have a good ear - that's the way I was made.
I completely disagree with this statement for two reasons:
1. The cost of the gatefold adds about 40 cents per unit (it's actually cheaper than doing a single pocket gatefold)
2. No one cares about paying an extra dollar or two for something they want
Have faith in your tribe.
who knows what the future will bring, but I doubt it. Not particularly high quality and they seem to keep them in print indefinitely. No extra liner notes or unreleased tracks or anything.
Re: the cost of different cover/vinyl combinations, I wonder what it cost Mowax to do that first pressing of the Axelrod album. That has got to be one of the biggest, heaviest gatefolds covers I own.
@ Amir and co.: keep up the good work. It is appreciated.
I do this for a living, I know the prices. You work at Stoughton, we work at Stoughton. It's not much more, and it's totally worth it.
Your double LP lists for $19.99, our double LPs list for $22.99. Gatefolds? Check. Deluxe vinyl? Check. Pro mastering job? Check. Fully licensed? Check. Quality costs, and people who want it will pay for it. Don't undersell your stuff! If stores balk at the price, they'll be the ones coming back hat in hand when their customers demand they carry it.
I like stocking both companies' stuff but the price point DOES make a difference. So does the wholesale cost... it might sound like nickel and dime shit but $25 vs $20 is tangibly different to the consumer. And an extra $2-3 on wholesale makes a difference.
