    Seems like the VMP site may have crashed after the announcement

    Signed up just for this release. VMP says it's sourced from the original tapes and transferred to hi-res. 45 rpm too!

    Thanks for the thread!

    VMP is doing a great job with titles and pressing quality. More in this forum should pay attention.

    Too precious for me. Fiona is alright I guess.

    I'm not sure their pressing quality is better than, say, AP... or the new Intervention Records... but getting Demon Dayz and Tidal back-to-back is a nice coup.
    I also grabbed the Nina Simone "Sings The Blues" record, which is still available in their store... Very nice pressing. Not sure it beats the Speakers Corner but it's great on its own.

    Oh yeah, and you can use my code for $10 off if the site ever starts working again: http://fbuy.me/fgnA9

    This is a great title, a well chosen reissue. Some of Jon Brion's best work is on her albums.

    Fiona Apple's first two albums have long been on my wishlist as far as albums that never made it to vinyl go, so I'm very stoked about this. Hopefully they'll do the next one at some point, too.

    I clicked "Reactivate Account" so fast I think I almost cracked my phone screen.

    I was just listening to When the Pawn... the other day and wishing, yet again, that Tidal and it would get repressed.

    My wife bought me a membership for Christmas last year and I'm really surprised how much I'm enjoying it. The recent change in their Swap feature makes it even better.

    Usuuuuuually VMP releases are harbingers of forthcoming label releases. Not always, though. The excellent Nina Simone release, for example, is still VMP-exclusive, and there's as of yet no indication that the Gorillaz release will be getting a general-release repress, afaik.

    I'm not taking a risk on this one being a true VMP exclusive, since it's one I've been wanting for ages.

    Yeah...found this in their site regarding this release. Just trying to figure out how to get only this LP. One month only or something.


    Andrew: And before we go, since people will ask and insinuate, there are no current plans to do this reissue on the label’s side, right?

    Cam: Correct. This reissue is coming out exclusively through Vinyl Me, Please.

    The pressing quality is exceptional on the 8 titles of theirs that I own. They're all flat, centered and clean. They're not caught up in everything being 180g-200g either, which is fine by me.

    Without offering comparisons with companies like AP and Speakers Corner, I will say that my experience, so far, with Vinyl Me, Please is on par with most of the better companies I've found through this forum.

    Best of all for me is that these records have consistently very good sound quality.

    So far, so good.

    Sounds like a good plan. Now I just need to time it so I get the Fiona Apple album...and not something else.

    Looks like there server is down. I hope they pressed a lot!

    Whenever you sign up, you're signing up for the next release, so if you sign up now, you're signing up for Fiona.

    When The Pawn... is one of my all-time favorite albums. Somebody needs to let it live on vinyl.

    Signed up for this. I hope this means When the Pawn . . . is on the horizon. A re-press of The Idler Wheel . . . would be welcome, too. In Fantasyland, I'd love the Jon Brion version of Extraordinary Machine.
