    Correct, Mercury Rev with different vocalists.

    I grabbed one too. Great price, especially with Prime shipping.

    It's a very good album. I missed the deal on the LP, although the CD is still very cheap at $4.40.

    I did this too, since hey $5 equals another record and mine hadn't shipped yet. Somehow missed the words currently out of stock though. Regret it now but I'm still confident the order will get fulfilled, hopefully over the next few weeks.

    I missed both of these deals but I can report the Mercury Rev album is darn well worth it based on the cd I own. Don't expect to be hearing anything that'll remind you of Mercury Rev but most of the songs are very strong and the guest vocalists do them justice.

    Can someone remind me how to turn off the automatic redirecting...when I click on a .com link it loads as .ca. I recall there was a way to turn it off but can't remember...no lectures on how to right click, copy and paste please. I already know how to do that and I don't want to :)

    Opt Out of Sovrn //Commerce

    You can also use browser plug-ins to achieve the same thing.

    That's the link I remember but it didn't work and none of my browser plugs in work either. I think it's an Amazon geo tagging thing.

    Even copy/paste redirects. I have to manually change the .ca to .com after pasting and redirect happens.

    Edit worked it out I think. Some links have this at the end of it "&tag=shforums-20" removing that from the link stops the redirect.

    Not sure what is going on. I just tried links in the other Amazon threads, and I was linked to the UK, Germany, France and Spain without an issue.

    I have the vigilink opt-out enabled as above. I use my smartphone mainly. When I hold my finger on the link it gives me a pop up box with a few choices. I click "open in Chrome" and it forces a new window. I'm not getting the redirect happening from Amazon UK to US. See if that helps, or the equivalent thing in a PC or Mac whatever that is?

    So this got such a good response that it maxed out the free web hosting service I was using. You can filter Amazon records by price in a few ranges here: Filter Amazon vinyl records by price until I get the original tool up and running again.

    It works on some links and on others it doesn't. Best I could work out yesterday was some links had a tag at the end (as I posted above). I haven't tried any links in the other Amazon threads.

    Just a tip I have learned. The trick with Amazon is to get in early on pre orders. If you get in, you usually get the album on release day. However, order later and it could be many weeks. May not be worth the extra $5 in this case but for important albums I would rather have it on day one.

    My shipment of "Earth Pentastar" purchased at $9.98 arrived yesterday. Unfortunately it contained a different LP (some Flaming Lips). So it's going back. Current price back up at $16.
