    notesofachord Where are the prawns?

    It's all good. I ended up ordering the standard 2LP reissue on Discogs. It should be a nice upgrade to the 2004 brickwalled CD. If I want to hear the bonus EP I'll just have to spin the CD.

    Nope. I bought the "...And Justice For All" deluxe set a few weeks after release date, and the price dropped even further ($5-$10) two days later. I contacted customer service and asked nicely for a price adjustment. They refused and told me it's now Amazon policy to not issue after-purchase price adjustments/refunds. As always, YMMV.

    Mine arrived a few days ago. Excellent sound and the booklet does a set-by-set breakdown of the shows.

    I was told the same + they told me to return the first order and reorder again at the lower price - that’s a nutty practice

    It is nutty but I did it with the White Album box when it dropped about $50 from what I initially paid for it. I even gladly paid the $10 to send it back at that amount.

    If anybody needs a copy of the Pink Floyd sacd I accidentally ordered two by mistake. I'm sending one back but I will sell one if you want to cover shipping cost on top of my costs

    Lol I was joking with my wife the other night that I should start ordering two copies when buying new vinyl since there’s about a 50/50 chance one will be defective in some way

    LORDS OF ACID: Farstucker 2-LP (pressed at a brand new pressing plant built in Canada in 2017! I was unaware of this...)

    Amazon.com: Buying Choices: Farstucker (Special Remastered Limited Band Edition)

    I had bought their earlier album Lust (yeah, I know... they are very naughty...:oops:) and although I really like the powerful electronic vibe, the sound was SO extremely compressed that it was honestly unlistenable, especially for this Genre where you expect it to pack a good wallop!

    So, I was listening to the Lossless FLAC version of this album here, and with this one they went VERY heavy / Industrial, which I like even more. And, from the CD source, the sound was pretty lively, so I checked out the prices at Amazon.

    The Prime price is $31, BUT... the deal is that there are at least 4 or 5 3rd party sellers selling this for $14.99! So, the total price comes out to about a full $15 less! So, I shagged it! (somewhat appropriate in this case...) It is spread out over 2 LPs, and it is a new Remaster from what appears to be this hotshot brand spanking new plant (a la Third Man, but I think they beat him by several months and could then claim to be the FIRST brand new pressing plant in over 30 years)

    Anyway, I am almost more anxious to hear what kind of job they do with the vinyl! Actually, after watching the video tour of Third Man's plant and how blissfully LOVELY it looks, I've been desperate to hear what their vinyl sounds like, but they mostly press this rather unique set of new artists and specialty vinyl, so I've not had a chance to hear what vinyl sounds like when pressed in this kind of state-of-the-art environment, which technically looks completely mind blowing! So, we'll see how this Canadian plant does. Here are a couple of links to information about the plant:

    Precision Record Pressing

    Precision Record Pressing. State of the art record pressing plant.

    Does anyone know anything about this new plant...???

    The 3rd party sellers add $4 or $5 shipping. So more like $20. But still cheaper than $31.

    Yeah, Prime with tax was close to $34 and the several 3rd party had it listed at $14.99 + $3.99 or about just shy of $19 Odd disparity. Normally, there isn't THAT much difference. But, the good ol' Honey & Wiki apps let you know :) ***EDIT in this case with the 3rd party sellers, most are not charging tax either, which helps.

    Also, FWIW, I believe that Discogs showed this pressing to be very limited, I think to 500. I mean, the group is not exactly Led Zeppelin, but I really did like the seriously Heavy Butt-Kicking Industrial sound! I'm most keenly interested, though, in hearing what the vinyl pressed at a brand new plant would sound like! If it doesn't sound good, I may just hafta go up there and kick some Canadian @ss! :D

    Dude, that is SERIOUSLY messed up! Fortunately (so far) here in Southern California they've always packaged everything pretty carefully, many times double-boxing. Damn that looks bad! [​IMG]
