It's probably a mistake. Amazon has made this mistake before on other items.
I noticed that as well. That either adds to the mystery like you said, or, confirms they have the vinyl and CD listings mixed up.
It's especially strange, considering the vinyl version is not currently in print, as far as I can tell.
It's the CD issue, UPC 075678264924
The same "seller" has pages and pages of cheap vinyl on Amazon Canada too, looks like a scam to me.
It's shipped and sold by Amazon.
I know that it has gotten mixed reviews, but the Animals "Mickie Most Years" CD box set with a lame t-shirt is being sold by importcds in the amazon marketplace for $31 and (even better) for $21 on importcds.com - I gave in and bought it on their website, since I only have the Retrospective CD.
That's what I was looking for this AM, a UPC number. Couldn't find it.
Yep. I cancelled my order. It's extremely unlikely that this record has been pressed again and only Amazon is selling it, at a ridiculously low price.

"The prices do not make sense. The tracking number is invalid."

"Be careful with this seller. They say their from OH or something, and there prices are really cheap for less than half the price of other items/ 3.99 etc, but they ship from China with an untrackable tracking number (EMS) Seller smells like a scam artist. Would not accept my cancellation after I figured them out. Be careful."
The box and shirt are worthless but the CDs are well worth that price. I think it sounds good.
Thanks for this! I just ordered one. Too good a price to pass up on. I however interacted with Amazon directly to make sure what was being advertised is what I will receive (vinyl-new). Per someone else above, there was a snafu in advertising it as it was indeed a CD when it was originally advertised as vinyl. They recognized the error and even gave me a $5 discount on next purchase! All good with no risk!
It looks like there's been a rash of people hacking into existing seller accounts, selling items at ridiculously low prices, pretending to "ship" them and hopefully cashing out before they get caught. I know I've seen it a lot on listings for things like the Nintendo Switch or the NES Classic.
Ya, he bought from a third party, not shipped and sold by Amazon.com
That album that was posted is shipped and sold by Amazon.com
As was mentioned, the listing is an error and actually a CD.
I took the bait too, thinking I was getting a great deal on an LP. Not, just got off the phone and debated the issue with amazon rep.
Bottom line, as a Prime member, got a full refund (gift card credit) and told to keep the cd, don't send it back, give it away if you like.
Metallica 'Hardwired.. to Self-Destruct' deluxe vinyl box is at $28.50 which is 50% retail. Great press on 3lp w/ a cd copy included.
Metallica - Hardwired...To Self-Destruct (Limited Deluxe Edition) - Amazon.com Music
Yeah, called them yesterday and indeed, nothing. Its a CD...order cancelled but, as mentioned earlier, at least i got a small credit from them which I promptly used to purchase something else. Little risk and I knew that so all good.
Thanks for the Hardwired heds up!
Does the Hardwired vinyl actually sound good ? Can't find any comments on it.
Yes - the consensus on the dedicated Hardwired thread is that it is the best sounding format available. If you like the album and want to crank it up - the purchase at that price is a no-brainer.
I found one thread that looked dedicated but didn't read any comments on sound. So thanks!
3 vinyl LPs. (red, white, and blue vinyl) Disc 1, 2 & 3 are the same as the CD double set with the same track list but you get a CD of 9 songs that were recorded live at rasputin music in Berkeley on April 16th 2016 and the title track Hardwired recorded live at the US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on August 20th, 2016.
(I don't think there is a CD copy of the 3LPs)
And a pack of buttons too.
Immediately asked for a refund......and yes, the listing was fr vinyl, not CDs.
I think the vinyl sounds great. Don't have the CDs to compare it to, but it's been getting consistent play here since I got it last Fall. The pressing quality of my copy is fantastic as well. No issues with the colored vinyl. $30 is a fantastic price for this set.
