Is anyone ordering this album??
I’m tempted to buy this just for the color and to see if it sounds sonically better than the white one which I wasn’t crazy about the mastering. I’m also not crazy about the fact Richard didn’t know anything about this release which makes me feel like it’s a bootleg release. The cover was also not good quality which screams bootleg.Amazon says next week. I hope that’s true. Looks so cool. They never did any colored vinyl or picture discs back in the late 70’s or early 80’s when it was trendy. Better late than never.
I have quite a few pieces of colored vinyl pressed in 2013 and 2015 on Shelflife/Korda Records and it sounds super quite and actually better than the CD versions. So colored vinyl can sounds amazing if pressed correctly.My experience with colored vinyl is inferior sound quality. Especially older records. Just getting it for the novelty and it looks great.
Have you posted pictures in the Show Us Your Colored Vinyl thread in the Collectors Forum?I have quite a few pieces of colored vinyl pressed in 2013 and 2015 on Shelflife/Korda Records and it sounds super quite and actually better than the CD versions.

There an awesome group, I guess their considered alternative (not the grungy type) but I just think they make great music, real vocals, real instruments, great lyrics. They actually started back in the 80’s, my favorite track is Sad Night, Where is Morning? I can’t get over how awesome this red vinyl sounds and looking at it (being my first red vinyl) reminds me of a shiny red Apple I want to eat. lolI remember them. Between Something and Nothing was their breakout tune. Alternative music would be the best description I think. We carried the CDs at Music Plus/Blockbuster Music/Wherehouse when I worked there. Ohhhh, the good old days.
Yes. Got the white also.Did you get the white vinyl too? Maybe you can do an audio comparison between the colored vinyl. Look forward to what you find out.
When did you order? Where do you live? Just trying to see when mine might come.I got mine by UPS today. It looks very nice, though I won't be able to play it until I dig out my turntable, I have the white one as well. This one looks nicer; very classy. There are a couple inserts inside. One has the black and white 12x12 goofy picture from the Singles cover as well as another cover. There is also an advert for "The Collected Series." Being a complete-ist I always buy everything when it comes out so it doesn't cost me a lot more later.
