    Received Millionaires today. Nice high gloss inners. Manufacturing wise A+.zero surface noise. A few pops and clicks that come with the territory.
    Comes with a wav. DL card using the old compact disc mastering.
    Recommended if you absolutely have a 'must have James on vinyl fetish' :laugh:

    Where did you end up buy these? US Amazon doesn't show in stock for any titles.

    That one was from Amazon. I pre-ordered it. They must of had small amounts in stock. For other titles I've seen importcd's carrying them.

    Juno has the most reasonable pricing for them I've seen thus far.

    A few pops and clicks come with the territory? Not really...

    I expect maybe some surface noise but no pops to be honest, especially if I’m paying the £28 that I’m seeing these in the shops for. I expect them to be quiet virgin vinyl for that price.

    But they ship in mailers that don’t use stiffeners so it’s a risk. I had to return my last order to them as the cover was gouged.

    I bought Gold Mother, Seven, Whiplash, and Millionaires from HMV, £28 each. I'll play them on Mon-Tues, I'm excited about these albums, which are some of my favourites.:)

    Did you miss the GZ part Rich?
    I'm only grabbing this one as I felt it holds no advantage over my old compact disc, others mileage may very :cheers:

    Would've been nice to see some bonus tracks on the fourth side of these, with the album split over three, since most of them don't really need to be doubles. Oh well.

    I'm pissed! I bought Millionaires and PTMY from ImportCD and the outer sleeves came damaged.

    I ordered Seven from Amazon US and it's prepping to send.

    Verdict please? I have original pressings of Gold (both issues) and Seven. Should I consider getting these?

    I got Whiplash and Millionaires. Listening to Whiplash now. As c-eling has stated the vinyl pressing is very good,despite my first impression of paper flecks and rub lines from hard inners. That all disappeared after a proper cleaning. Cool to own but a little disappointing from a soundstage presentation. The Whiplash CD is fuller sounding. On this pressing it sounds like all the highs are rolled off to eliminate any siblance that might be present. Really is flat sounding and reminds me of pan and scan vs. wide screen. Dead quiet wax. This album is so great but this release fails to hit the sweet spot for me. I hope Millionaires sounds better because I adore that album.

    Hello - sorry, I've been poorly and haven't been able to listen to these LPs. I'll post my thoughts once I've listened to them, but I can't offer comparative insights 'cause I've not got any other vinyl versions.
    I would imagine original pressings sound impressive?

    Millionaires is now £15.99 on Amazon UK (£13.32 if you ship it outside EU).
