    yes it comes with a download code from the sounds of vinyl website. I bought my copy in Toronto so I’m assuming all stores at least in Ontario received the same version.

    I played the album last night and it sounds beautiful. Was not expecting a digital copy so that was a nice bonus and it’s on my iPhone too.

    My only complaint is the vinyl has surface scratches from the inappropriate inner sleeve used. A common problem with new vinyl which really bugs me - paper sleeves should be banned. Plays beautifully but this is starting to bug me particularly since the vinyl comes in B+ shape and it should always come flawless.

    Update from Banquet Records this morning:

    We can't be 100% sure we're able to fill your order, and wanted to let you know as soon as we were aware.

    Stock is en route to us but hasn't yet arrived, and until it does we can't guarantee it. Delivery is expected in the next couple of days and you'll be sent updates as your order progresses
    .

    Oh well … see you in September … hopefully. :rolleyes:

    Just flipping through the packaging photos on discogs for the LP and it's interesting to see the "Tape Baked - December 2012" stamping in there. That timeline makes sense for work that was done for the 2014 SFTBC box set, but the Record Store Day preview video from superdeluxeedition says that only "Mother's Talk" came from the multi-tracks. Maybe they just ran out of time or funds when putting that box set together, but it does seem like they were available to use.

    I'm enjoying reading others' thought on this, keep them coming! I don't have an vinyl setup so I'll have to wait for the general CD release. Any chance that this'll get a hi-res digital release on HDTracks or similar sites?

    Lucky - we didn't get DL code here in the US. :sigh:

    Same thing happened a couple years ago with Elton's 11-17-70 release and Universal emailed me a code, so I'm going to at least ask!

    there's so many email addresses, none of them seem to fit this general request. Which one will you be using?

    I posted about it on my own site ;)

    I also asked back to Steve two days ago if there will be any differences (e.g. in the packaging) and he said, I quote, "The RSD and regular one are exactly the same". So no need to feel bad if you don't manage to get a RSD CD ahead of the regular release date.
    I think Paul is not entirely correct there. Broken/HOH, Memories Fade and EWTRTW were vinyl rips (perhaps for historical reasons) (and of course "I Believe" has been remastered from the original tape a couple times now) but "The Working Hour" and "Shout" were definitely new mixes. It'll be interesting to compare how many, if any, differences there are between those and the ones from the new album.

    2012 is a long time ago though! That was even before The Hurting was released as a box set.

    Looking at setlist.fm for other Canadian setlists, and they are the same as Massey Hall. But like you said, setlist.fm is not always accurate. Prior to coming to Canada, then starting their US leg of the tour, the set list was similar to the new release. So, as far as I'm concerned, the running order on the new release is correct. Still disappointed that they didn't add Suffer The Children and Change. Paul from superdeluxeedition.com said the tapes were damaged for those 2 songs. But they played 4 nights!! Surely not all of the tapes were damaged!! Just take from another Massey Hall show! It can still be called Live From Massey Hall! Maybe JAuz has a point concerning production costs though.

    This is the RSD title I wanted the most, but my local store didn't get any so I got one online Saturday afternoon. Happy to say I received my shipping notice today, and can't wait to hear it!

    Didn't see this mentioned my apologies if I missed it, and hey maybe this is common knowledge, but figured I'd share a little trivia from someone who grew up in Toronto and followed TFF back in those days... the band filmed the Head Over Heels video between these gigs at Massey Hall... the video was filmed in Emmanuel College Library in Toronto. I remember loving that they did this... and Emmanuel College obvious still does, the attached tribute/parody video is only 6 years old :D

    PS I will be grabbing this release for sure... great show, amazing memories, last time I saw them live was five years later for Seeds of Love at Maple Leaf Gardens with Debbie Harry opening.

    Certainly "Change" exists in a version from Massey Hall, not sure about "Suffer the Children"...

    That said, this is definitely not the performance of "Shout" that was released on the box set, so likely from a different night.

    I'm less bothered by absence of "Change" since that seems to show up regularly on other live releases. But "Suffer the Children" is played far less often (and perhaps never again after this tour?).

    Is the Will Gregory mentioned here the one who went on to be half of Goldfrapp ?
