I blew it. I got there with 20 minutes to open and there was already a huge line.
When I got in all the elephants were gone :(

I'm legit bummed. So it goes though, I should have got there earlier.

Two quick points about this:

1) It's just the V2 pressing rather than a remaster. The runout grooves have the V2 matrix numbers scratched out to confirm this.

2) I've been in two UK indies this morning and they had dozens. There should be plenty around over the next week on the trade markets.

This is what I'm thinking. Don't over-pay today. eBay will be flooded soon.

Someone in the JumbleJumble RSD thread is posting that it's a crappy pressing.

So no loss I didn't get one then....

I'd assume this was because the way Jack mastered it for the original pressing, it just didn't warrant a remaster.
not all of the [TMR] music has been cut to vinyl from analog tape. why not? because it's not always possible. it's not as simple as some people think. would we like to do it everyntime? of course we would.

for one the tape machines used at third man studios are highly unique and can't be found everywhere.
another reason is that if you do what's called a "cross fade" such as between the songs 'blue blood blues' and 'hustle and cuss' on [Sea of Cowards], you can't mix that onto tape without having three machines of the same model type. two to mix from, and one to mix down to. not very easy to do, and very expensive. and you lose a generation in that cross fade to boot.

the first time i was able to cut direct from tape to vinyl and and afford it and make it work was the album elephant.
why? because the songs had no crossfades between tracks. sometimes that's not possible when sequencing an album. also because the vinyl cutting joint in london happened to have the same tape machine as toe rag. besides this we still had to pay double the price because it was mastered to vinyl, then started all over again and mastered for digital a second time. probably
cost more than the entire recording of the album did, and a BARELY noticeable difference in sound.

I had the opposite luck. The last copy went right before me. Bummed. Not looking to drop 60 to 80 dollars for this on ebay.

Southwest Missouri sucks. I was 10th in line at one place that only had 2 copies and got to another right at opening that only had 4.

Yeah, idk what that was all about, sure it's not 180g, but its not a bad press, they obviously came from the same mothers as the original V2, so I can't imagine the sound quality is bad. And mine has a beautiful, clean split between the black and red.
