    We have an AAA thread where we track new issues that are AAA. It is a thin thread as one might expect. I just noticed that Toad the Wet Sprocket reissued Fear and Dulcinea and I missed the thread informing us about it. I Would like to have picked them up if I had known, but I didn't and the reissues themselves are now well over $100.

    This may be an unworkable idea or there may not be interest but I was thinking about trying a general tracking thread as an aid to Hoffman members that might miss a reissue otherwise. The criteria is simple, a reissue of an album where an on original cost $75 - $100 or more or never before on vinyl. A Beatles album might not qualify as there are many other reissues that can be had cheaply even if an original is $1K but say a hypothetical Alison Krauss reissue of New Favorite, Lyle Lovett reissuing Joshua Judges Ruth, or the aforementioned Toad the Wet Sprocket would.

    This wouldn't be the place for commentary on sound quality, pressing, shipping, etc... Just a place to follow and see that a record that was unobtanium a month ago now has an option before it is gone again. That means the thread might be easily forgotten for lack of traffic but otherwise we get cluttered and useless. So here it is, we'll see if it worthwhile.

    Yes, this. Couldn't stomach paying that much for the reissues (and it kind of bummed me out). Not sure why they had to be priced so high.

    So I shouldn't comment that it sounds terrible and I wouldn't recommend it? Anyway 1500 copies. There is no original pressing, just the Classic Record re-issue cut by BG. $30 Book-A-Million exclusive.

    The July album - A very rare British psychedelic 60s album, has been reissued on Music On Vinyl recently and it's a beauty. Complete with original Major Minor labels and glossy sleeve too.

    the breeders’ title tk was insanely priced before it was reissued this year. mountain battles as well. the amps’ pacer was also very expensive.

    Fotheringay/Fotheringay has just been reissued on vinyl. I’m just going to pick up the Amazon parcel now from my next-door neighbours. Will report back.

    Playing it now.

    Excellent reproduction of the original gatefold sleeve and nice job on the Island pink label albeit with an overprint of the reissuing company's logo.

    The pressing is dead quiet but the sonics are coming across as a little dull. However, this is probably my fault as just before it, I was excited to play a newly-acquired copy of John Barleycorn Must Die/Traffic -an original French pressing in as near to mint condition as can be, found on the streets of Nantes for 10€!

    A modern record is likely to pale after that.

    Onto track three now and I’m warming to it. All detail is there, I just feel it’s a little restrained. It’s certainly lovely to have on vinyl once more.
