New pressing of VU&N. June 2017 ?

Postby iaredatsun » 10 Jun 2017 16:39

Allegedly is new. Is ltd. edition. Is peelable. Has 12 page booklet with liner notes by Cale. June 30th 1017

This url looks weird but it's a recycled hard-link and works. Can't seem to find anyone selling it. Warning spincds.com take money before in-stock.

https://www.spincds.com/coming-soon/ell ... -vinyl-box

Any thoughts or further information?

This is the one from 2012

Thanks this must be the one. I didn't realise it was pink until today. But I'm confused – this says 1000 copies and only through UMG online. And yet spincds are selling it.

Still if it's only selling point is its pinkness, rather than being a great mastering or pressing, I think I will pass. I;d like to read JC's liner notes though.

Maybe, to match the vinyl, it contains "The Pink Angel's Death Song" ...

Sorry folks but I don't see the point either.

Pink now "sold out", black vinyl available also limited (as was the 45th which is still available). Includes 12 page booklet and a sticker (the one used to cover Emerson) stuck to the shrinkwrap

I've got enough banana records to last a lifetime, so this isn't for me, but it's nice to see it on vinyl up on the wall of large CD chains here, which I think is the point of the reissues. It would have been even nicer, though, if the colour was the fleshy/dirty pink of the banana, rather than the hot pink that it looks like it is from the photo.

Can you believe they would do a reissue with the peeling on the fucking shrinkwrap!? That sucks. That reminds me of my bootleg from 1993 "Back to Vengance". It has a "peelable" banana but the peel is stuck to the top cover of the jewel case. My jewel case of course got damaged but since it has that peel, I cannot replace my jewel case. Stupid execution if you ask me. :oops:
