    It seems like they have 2 mailer styles and they package each title as a single unit with no consideration for whether it's a single LP, double LP gatefold etc.

    I questioned this myself. Went back and listened to my old copy. I owe VMP an apology! This copy enhanced something that was already there!

    I must be lucky. Being in Canada I often have a hard time with stuff being damaged in the mail but with the years I've been with VMP its only happened once (top seam split).

    Just grabbed Buck Owens' first album that VMP dropped today. Only 500 copies.

    Looks like the Buck Ownes drop is actually his first album, not the Carnegie Hall title. I would have totally been down with Carnegie Hall - it's got a great energy and wide sampling of his songs - but given that my vinyl want list has expanded greatly in the past few days, I'll give this one a pass.

    Sundazed just announced the Buck Owens Bridge Over Troubled Water reissue for RSD Black Friday too. Also Kevin Gray/AAA. Lots of quality Buck Owens reissues coming this fall/winter

    As noted above, Carnegie Hall is likely an upcoming Record of the Month. The debut album is a one-time drop of 500 copies. I ordered it.

    Replacement copy of the Wailing Wailers is just as warped as the first one and has more surface noise.
    Quality control issues are out of...control industry-wide right now. UGH!

    Sorry to hear that. My copy plays fine, no warps. But I wonder how many replacements they can do with an initial run of 500.

    At this point I'm going to invest in a Vinyl Flat. I have a small stack of warped VMP releases (among other) that could be flattened and sold on the secondary market at cost. This would net me enough to pay for the Vinyl Flat.

    Fortunately VMP CS is very agreeable when I have a flawed pressing. Most of the time the second copy is better, but this year sure seems to be full of evidence that the industry has let quality slip to keep up with demand, supply chain issues, and staffing shortages.

    That's actually a good idea. I keep playing with the idea of buying one of those. Usually I don't mind minor warps, but at times they get so bad that I have to stick them under a speaker for a month or two to flatten them, and even then it doesn't completely solve the problem. And even slight warps make it harder to sell stuff.

    Heres a weird thing. I started a membership (actually just renewed) with Al Green a few months ago and through the “Shop” App I can buy another copy, I was hoping it would let me buy other VMP100 titles but no only that one.

    It’s a pretty pointless item, why would I want to listen to the radio edit of Light My Fire when I have the full version?

    Yeah I have been considering this too. My friend who has one for his store recommended I find 2-3 friends locally to split it with since it will go unused a great deal of time. That’s my plan just passing it along.

    So only new members can choose just one of those 10 VMP 100 titles as their 1st title and after that all other titles are not available for swaps or purchase. Weird strategy indeed.

    Member since Sept 2019, I asked Customer Service directly if I could by another Al Green Call Me and they said no.

    It's not a bad idea. Once you get the feel for how your VF works, it's great, but each one is different. The real bummer is edge warps, as they can't be fixed by a VF. Your point, though is truly valid... QC is lacking as of late.
