Post of the thread. :D

I think we can all play nice and discuss the origin and provenance of said records while keeping the jabs at a minimum. We're all mature individuals... right?











...... annnnnnnnnnnd cue kevron. :P

I am finally starting to feel better after a really rough scary start to the year. Hopefully a weekend of rest will get me back on my feet feeling normal again.

that sure is a pretty record Grim... and reading this thread I've come to realize most of you here are in a completely different category of collecting than I, but it's nice to know that this stuff exists~

This is an interesting place... Some hardcore off the deep end, sell their first born for the right record/poster collectors (most have serious OCD problems), a whole bunch of jack loving collectors who buy what they can afford (or what their credit cards will max out at) and have a blast doing it, and then the casual collectors who just enjoy the music and a few items...
It's all here for sure.

I'd rather not associate myself with such comments. Many of my friends are not all that straight. I try not to judge others.

CACHED is a new feature where we delve into the XL archive. Inspired by news today of a White Stripes 7” selling for $12,700, here (for the vinyl nerds) is the story of XLT181, possibly the rarest record in our catalogue.
Matt Thornhill, Director of A&R: "XLT181 is an extremely rare clear vinyl 10" that's been the subject of much speculation amongst White Stripes vinyl collectors.
"When putting together the vinyl release of There's No Home For You Here, the B-side was initially intended to be a version of Ball & Biscuit, recorded as part of a live session at Electric Ladyland Studios. At 9 minutes long, Ball & Biscuit was too long for a 7", so a 10" was considered.
"Test pressings were hastily ordered, but the pressing plant only had clear vinyl on press. Time didn't allow for the presses to be switched back to black vinyl, so a batch of test pressings were manufactured on clear vinyl.
"By the time the test pressings arrived, it was decided that in fact a medley of I Fought Piranhas / Let's Build A Home (Live At Electric Lady Studios) should be the B-side, meaning that the release would fit onto a 7" single after all. As a result there are likely to be under 10 copies of XLT181 in existence worldwide. Here is Richard's copy."

So I never realised till now that this is not a Ball & Biscuit 10" but technically a There's No Home For You Here 10"

Btw there is a copy of it for sale at Swirl store that comes with a COA/letter from Mr. Blackwell (clicky for pictures)
