I would love to have a nice working jukebox but not something I am going out of my way for and definitely not spending $700 to go haul it over….

Dude stop. As you know I am worse at fixing stuff than Space with his wife and daughter sitting on him…

If it’s not operating perfectly I can’t

I think it’s time to kill vinyl… or at least major label vinyl output..

The amount of vinyl variants coming out is a bit crazed at moment… 17 variants for the Inhaler debut, 18 for the Architects.. the dullplay album is being released in 11 different versions including a boxset of six cassettes on the album in different colors

Why do people collect all the colors? It makes no sense to me…

But if it makes people buy multiple copies why wouldn’t record companies put them out?



I think the way record companies put out vinyl guarantees it will remain a very small niche market and a luxury good…. Maybe it was going to remain that regardless and they are just squeezing every drop they can from Uber fans and record collectors

Still I can’t help but wonder how the vinyl revival would have gone if record companies had tried to keep costs down and exercised quality control

Am guessing the highlights will be on the 2LP issue and this limited issue will be a lot of the rest… so to have all the songs you will also need the 5 cd issue

I got to confess I gave up collecting all this stuff… not sure what I will do here

I'm confused.  Did you give up or not?

Meaning I don’t automatically buy every Bob Dylan release


The best fit for me here is maybe to just get the Vault release

The cd set is $140!
2 LP $45?
4 LP $65

The 2LP is so limited! Just 12 songs!
