I suspect this has happened a few times at Hutch's house.

currently under serious consideration is the renaming this thread to Vinyl isn't dead, it's just seriously overpriced

the price of some long lost track on colored 7" vinyl is $19, standard black $17, black 12" $23  :o

Addendum

The Red and Blue albums have  both been expanded to 3 discs... $150 for all six discs on black and $175 for all six on fancy colored vinyl

It's also amazing how accurate John Wesley Harding was about these later day lost Beatles tracks in  "When The Beatles Hit America"

Will they be 45rpm? The Red album is barely over an hour as it is, so 10 minutes per side.

12 additional tracks on red, 9 additional tracks on blue

and apparently George nixed the "last" song in the 90s...

The 2014 versions that are AAA are still out there in the wild. I doubt they’ll re-release the mono box set but man am I kicking myself for not getting into vinyl sooner so I could’ve bought that.

And DNOTD is probably at least 10% of all SST sales at this point.

It’s been out of print on and off forever…I don’t think there is conflict between Watt and Ginn

I donated my original in perfect condition to hall of records….haven’t been able to replace it

Key with this album is there are three different versions with different track listings…I think it can oscillate between 43 and 55

SST re-releases this every few months.  I got a copy for $33 from their website early this year.  It has come and gone a few times since then.  Just be patient and keep checking.
