LOL. do you sympathize with that sentiment or is that just the thing to say for some people, sarfie?
i go with represses just to save money, but i hear sound quality goes down as something approaches its 10th pressing. lol.
i got another record for my bday. johnny cash. will post pix of that and my latest stuff when i get a chance. :D

kind of....hunting for original presses is part of the fun. but somethings you just need to buy the repress because it is impossible to own unless you pay big bucks.

INSANE-O. but i had to have them and there's a 95+% chance i wouldn't have found them cheaper. there's a rumor that's been going around after i completed my collection that some of them will get repressed though. at least i will always have the OG copies... lol. and as of now, there are still only one press for each album.

My copy of Mylo Xyloto arrived from the UK. Epic looking, but there's no way I can bring myself to open it.

Hey Lunchie - Vinyl Collective - THRICE-TAITA 2xLP repress HOT TOPIC exclusive
Ive been so busy with work that i've been neglecting this thread, i need to get back on it. Ive gotten quite a bit of stuff in recently. Gonna try and snap some pics this week. In the meantime, heres a mock up of a vinyl project im working on.
Its a press (was never pressed) of IWABO's (iwrestledabearonce) first e.p. that came out 3 or 4 years ago. We will be releasing this in the next month or 2.
We will be doing other colors as well, even kicking around the idea of doing a 3D picture disk.

My cousin was into IWABO back when that ep came out, went with him when they were down here. Not bad I guess, the lead singer Krysta is hot too

That band makes me want to jam screwdrivers in my ears and permanently loose any sort of hearing :(

i've never heard of them. the pic looks cool and omg, the band name is awesome. haha.
i don't know how to feel about TAIA repress. i already have an OG copy and now i feel i'm going to be anxious about getting a copy of that 2nd press. ARGH. i don't normally like to have more than one copy of one release, but i won't be able to pass this up. it's exactly like that jpeg sarf posted a coupla posts ago. ack ack ack.
with that said, if i can get a copy (or 2 or 3 to fund my vinyl habit) then yippee.....................
i still need to find time to post pics of my recent acquisitions. i'm still recovering from the holidays. x_x
