    Not quite as exclusive as Augusta National, though.

    For what it's worth, I nabbed one of these from Amazon about two weeks ago and got black vinyl. I wonder if the blue vinyl is still around. I believe half of them were to be pressed on blue vinyl for a while.

    Yeah. At $12.22 i am just hoping for flat and quiet. I had heard that its roulette what color no matter where you buy.

    I got one a few weeks ago too, and mine was blue. I’d say chances are good that the blue vinyl is still around, since the stock is mixed.

    latheofheaven Trying 2 snag Da best deals before Lightning Tuna!

    This, in my lowly and wretched opinion, is one of THE greatest albums of all time. At least one of my very favourites! Several years ago, I bought what appeared to be a German remaster that, frankly, sounded pretty horrible and 'canned' compared to the original Sire US pressing (which is quite stunning, actually...)

    But, I cannot imagine Kevin Gray doing such a bad job, so I'm going to go ahead and 'snag' this one at this great price (I think I paid around $25 or so for that one I bought before) and give it a listen. Thanks for the post mate! :righton:

    ***EDIT

    Ah crap... You hafta be careful with that listing for 'Amazon Global'... It LOOKS like the price is low and then they hit you for about $9 shipping. The next one available is about $16.xx + shipping... That's caught me off guard too lately... But, I've gone ahead to Amazon UK and bought a few albums recently and as I posted on Amazon UK deals, one turned out to be about $21 shipped from there to the U.S. instead of $29 through Amazon Global. Worth a check...

    ***EDIT 2

    Yeah, I just checked Amazon UK and before removing the VAT it is about 10 GBP which should come out quite a bit less...

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Remain-Lig...id=1538186825&sr=1-1&keywords=REMAIN+IN+LIGHT

    ***EDIT 3

    Yep, I just ordered it from Amazon UK for about 9 GBP + 3 shipping, or about $16.xx shipped to the US.

    ***EDIT 4 (I know... I hope I'm done now... :))

    I THINK that this might be the German pressing that I bought before that sounded horrible. At least I sure HOPE so!

    Anyone purchased vinyl from Amazon Global Store UK? Any comments good or bad?

    I haven't had any problems ordering from them. I picked up Haley Bonor's Impossible Dream from them for $23.50 back in August. It came directly from the UK, well packed and secure.
     
  14. I have found that the actual postage charged at checkout is higher than what is quoted on the first page. I usually end up finding that item on the foreign Amazon site and ordering it directly, and coming out ahead.

    Absolutely, same here... Like the post above, the item page price is misleading, suggesting that the postage is only $4 when in actuality it is over $9 or something similar... In both cases where I first thought the price was lower, I checked Amazon UK directly and got a better deal (Talking Heads: Remain in Light & The Grateful Dead: Smiling on a Cloudy Day)
