The Back Street Mirror E.P. is now available to order: Sierra Records Mail Order
$25 shipping outside of the US? Yikes....
Exactly. But I've bitten the bullet and ordered it. I've been longing to hear the Masekela version of Yesterday Am I Right since I read about it in John Einarson's book.
I'll order off Discogs. This was supposed to save people from the flippers, I thought. I'll take a higher priced record rather than being gouged for shipping. Between this and the Gene Clark Lost Studio Sessions deluxe box experience, very disappointed with Sierra.
I can only hope things have improved on the shipping end from the debacle that plagued Lost Studio Sessions and I see this ep before Christmas.
Anything from 9 ounces to 2 lbs is $23.50 for most countries.
Sierra is not gouging anybody, that's what the Post Office is charging.
Very true. Shipping overseas is very expensive. It’s an unfortunate reality.
Not to Canada though. He will only ship Priority mail here which is unnecessary for a $17 record.
I want to order this beautiful product, but full disclosure: I have no record player currently. (Hope they don't strip me of my forum credentials for that.) Does it contain a download code? I have been following this thread since the beginning but can't recall, and now can't find the info. Sorry if it's a repeat question.
I do recall that it was said that when the vinyl stock runs out, they will sell a digital download. Any word on if/when this will happen? It seems there is no chance of a CD, as far as we know...
No download code in the vinyl.
Thanks for the info. So basically you have to be a vinyl buyer or you're screwed. It's not on Spotify or youtube that I can see either. Guess I'll hold out for the digital release.
No download code in mine.
I´d like to have this, but if there is no CD I´ll wait for a digital download.
No way I would pay over 40 dollars!
I’m sorry. This really sucks.
Thanks Tom, yup it does. $60 (or close to) in our currency is a lot for 6 songs. Even if it is Gene Clark.
Living in Norway, I saw this deal as the only opportunity to obtain this record, so I ordered two copies. Yes, the postage ratings suck, but that's not Sierra Records' fault. Obviously I'm a big fan of Gene Clark.
I bit the bullet on this one too. It's a one-off, and it's Gene.
Remembering Gene Clark especially today, on the 27th anniversary of his passing.
I caved and ordered......to the UK
I went for the 3-record deal of 'Gene Clark -Back Street Mirror' + 'Early L.A' compilation + 'Tim Hardin Lost in L.A' to try and minimise the pain of shipping.
Came out at:
Total $39.98 + $36.00P&P = $76.98USD
Which in good ol' GBP is about £58.00 - which works out at just under £20 a record, inc. shipping. Steep, but just about acceptable... I know if I had seen Back Street Mirror and the Tim Hardin in the UK record shops on RSD for £20 I'd have bought them so I feel ok about this...ish.
The Early L.A is, well, a bonus I guess, I mean it is my kind of thing, even if I do own 90% of the songs already....
Including postage to Australia, my copy of Back Street Mirror is costing me $43. Not bad considering they're asking between $60 and $100 for a copy on Ebay.
As an aside, there seems to be a glitch in the Sierra online order form, that adds the word "other" in the shipping address. I hope that doesn't confuse the postal services. I've tried to alert Sierra to this problem, but my mail server doesn't seem to like talking to Sierra's mail server.
I saw that too and tried to change it without success.
If it gets to Ireland in the first place I'm confident it will find its way to my house!
We Got The Beats had some extra for $20. Give them a call.
Any fans of ‘She Told Me’ or ‘That’s What You Want’?
That's What You Want is my favorite! I love the lyrics. It's a mature love song from a 21 year old Gene-ius! The harmonica is lovely. But you know, I love all the songs on there...
Finally got round to playing my copy that I picked up on RSD. Its really great and I especially love the title track which with the trumpets has a real Forever Changes feel to it. A great addition to the Gene Clark collection - looking forward to the Omnivore release too.
Anyone know when the digital version of this will be up for purchase?
My record player isn't currently operational and staring at the 12" isn't helping my patience in hearing the music.
