A vinyl thread (for us old fogies who laugh in the face of common sense).

Shelf space will be my issue as I finish tackling sleeving my collection. I'm using a 4x2 kallax for the good stuff and 35 Litre XL Really Useful BOxes for the stuff that's just in storage (mostly my dad's collection). What little space I have left will certainly disappear as I sleeve. I was thinking about putting 4x1 on the 4x2, but i'm also looking for alternate options for a midsized collection that isn't custom.

I’ve been putting my records into some new plastic sleeves, I decided to try putting the record and the inner sleeve in the bag outside of the cardboard sleeve as recommended by  Channel 33 on YouTube. It’s brilliant. Makes it so much easier to handle the records.

Yeah, my issue would be shelf space as well.  Which episode of Channel 33 was this?

Found 5 titles that are for sure purchases, and only 2 should be any issue trying to get based on limited quantities. My local store wants our wish lists by Monday. Haven't checked the UK list yet to see if there's anything exclusive over there I may want to track down.

UK list here

There are 3-4 soundtracks I want to pick up, but the Matrix Complete is my first priority.

So far, everything I fancy on the US is also coming to the UK, so that's a relief. The Matrix, the new Garbage (maybe? The regular superdeluxe looks nicer than the RSD version, and both are coming out around the same time), The Flaming Lips (mainly for those stereo mixes of Zaireeka! because somehow a vinyl pressing is more convenient, not less). Then only the UK get the live Suede lp, whatever the Chemical Brothers are doing (hah - I've been burned too many times with them, and know full well it'll be impossible to find except for all the money on ebay), Chapterhouse (God only knows what a 4 disc set is going to cost, but given Discogs want £90 for the original 2xCD release it's probably worth it), FSOL (because a man can't own too many pressings of Papua New Guinea), Mogwai (despite not being overly impressed with my digital copy) and the Erased Tapes compilation are all on the list of possibles.

 

But really, I know how hard it can be to get That One Thing you really want on RSD, and I also know that prices are a complete lottery on these things, and an album could as easily be £40 as £20. So I play it by ear, and get whatever I like the look of once I'm actually through the door on the day.

That Chapterhouse being UK exclusive makes me sad. I'd have shelled out for that. My local store said the Wire release, which was looking to be UK only is coming to the US as well, so I'm hoping. Then the issue becomes there are 3 of us who would be wanting the likely one copy that will be there.

I want that so bad but suspect the price will be insane. I've been desperate to own the score cues since the film came out so I will definitely get the separate 5-CD release. Hopefully the black 6 LP release is priced fairly and easy to get hold of too.

I still rue the day Mondo bought Death Waltz and moved all production and release to the US. Those Mission releases would be instant purchases if they weren’t staring down the barrel of import duties. 


I say that about the  At the Movies label from Music on Vinyl. Its from the Netherlands and the prices are double everything else. Some big titles i still buy right away, but a bunch of smaller films i try and hope for a amazon price drop. 😀

I had the Matrix in my hand, and let the guy next to me have it, as it was the one thing he was queuing for for three hours and I think I’d be OK with the SACD. Did manage to buy the Art Of Noise (obviously I have an original pressing, but wanted the extra disc of stuff), Hospital Records ep, Chapterhouse (WHY did they stick the limited edition numbering, where I have number 36, on the shrink wrap???), The Keep and Possum. 
 

None of which has managed to shift the glow-in-the-dark rerelease of Spiritualized’s Pure Phase off the deck yet, mind you. It’s SO GOOD.
