    That is one heck of a haul, congrats! You have some great listening ahead of you.

    I went fairly early to the closest Walmart (as in 7:00 a.m.-ish) and was surprised to see it already picked through pretty well. Still, I got an album each for my girls (Harry Stiles for one, Bing Crosby Christmas for the other) and four for me...

    Kiss - Love Gun (great splatter vinyl, sounds really nice as well)
    Pink Floyd - DSOTM
    Bob Marley - Legend (reggae colors vinyl)
    The Mandolorian (picture disc)

    Showed some restraint, left behind some cool titles including Boston, Queen GH and Rush 2112 come to mind. Still pretty pleased. I passed the alert along to my music buddies and one went mid afternoon to a couple stores and found the vinyl to be completely cleaned out. Sounds like eBay flippers to me.

    How does the Mandalorian sound and what is the tracklist?

    Not sure how it sounds yet, spinning Kiss first and haven't gotten to the others. Here is the track listing.

    1 The Mandalorian (from Chapter 1)
    2 Jawas Attack (from Chapter 2)
    3 Signet Forging (from Chapter 3)
    4 The Ponds of Sorgan (from Chapter 4)
    5 Speederbikes (from Chapter 5)
    6 Welcome Back (from Chapter 6)
    7 The Arrival (from Chapter 7)
    8 The Baby (from Chapter 8)
    9 The Mandalorian (Orchestral Version, from Chapter 7)

    I'm a moderate Star Wars junkie so it seemed like a no-brainer purchase.

    Nice! Glad its not just a 12” of the main title.

    Unfortunately, this opens with a LOT of crackle, not to mention a pronounced warp which was evident as I removed the album from the sleeve. The warp doesn't seem to affect the sound but the crackle is irritating (although it becomes much less noticeable as the music gets louder).

    Doh! Well, i guess if they do a standard release i’ll sell the one i ordered. Thanks for the heads up.

    Yep, this is unfortunate. I'm enjoying the music quite a bit but there are too many moments where the crackle overwhelms. I'm keeping it in my collection for $15 after I attempt an exchange due to the warp.

    Stopped by during my early morning grocery run - still a couple dozen different titles in stock at this store, and all at $15 each. I only got two: Nevermind (had a Pallas sticker on the shrink and has BG in the deadwax) and Tool Lateralus picture disk. If anyone ends up with the Grand Funk 2 LP and wants to trade or work out some sort of exchange, please let me know.

    Made it to one of the locals this afternoon. The endcap box for the sale was pretty picked over, but there were more titles in the aisle on a shelf that I assume is the normal vinyl location. I was able to grab:

    Queen Greatest Hits & Greatest Hits Vol. 2
    Nirvana Unplugged
    Fleetwood Mac Rumours

    Left behind the KISS Love Gun splatter vinyl & Creedence Chronicles.

    If anyone figures out how long the sale lasts, please let us know. Can we hope it lasts until the actual Black Friday?

    Just want to be sure, this is only for in store? You can’t online order?

    Sale is done.
    I went this afternoon for the J5 Ultimate, not knowing there was a sale but a copy popped up in my daily eBay notifications, recognized the sticker and saw my closest Walmart had limited stock for $15 (out of stock at all our other Walmart’s) so I rushed over to look for it and on our way I saw on the app they had other titles for $15..
    I got the J5, Guns n Roses splatter Hits, and a red press of the new AC/DC, all scanned at $15.

    Would have a grabbed a few more if I wasn’t planning on Pink Floyd this Friday.
    Wish I could have nabbed that Stevie Nicks Stand Back box for $15 but all our stores were sold out.
    It’s $50 online price now and $30 in-store if you can find one.
    The electronics guy said people had been in buying 30-40 albums and stacks of the same titles.
    Was still quite a bit of good stuff when I left about 3pm Saturday but prices were already changing online when I started looking to see what else was at the other stores on the app.
    Glad I didn’t know about the sale except for missing the Stevie Nicks.

    Flippers. But what does Walmart care? All they are looking to do is move massive amounts of product. Mission accomplished.

    I just opened my copy of the Walmart exclusive "Jimi Hendrix - Smash Hits" (purple color vinyl with litho) and it is pressed by QRP, as the vinyl came in a QRP branded rice paper sleeve.
