Still waiting for mine, too. It was apparently shipped on 12/18. At what point should I begin to get impatient &/or worried?

Gulp.
I bought mine after I saw you purchased one figuring, "Hey, if it goes array I won't be the only one"

I had stuff shipped from the UK in mid-December that hasn't arrived yet. I guess US Customs has a backlog due to the holidays. As Paypal has a 40 day time-limit (is it 40?) I usually give it 30 before contacting the seller.

Considering all the issues I've had with domestic USPS packages over the last month, that's ^^ what I figured-- Stuck with either customs or the USPS. The holidays always throw them for a loop.

That's for damn sure.
I had a package leave Queens (a twenty minute trek from my town) only to now be in New Jersey.

Damn, this is lovely. So worth the money and the wait. Shows from that tour were f'ing killer. Bang Bang into Broken Boy Soldier is one of the most tremendous things ever.

Cool, I'm happy that you love it. I told you the Live is awesome, the sound really great and Bang Bang ... How to describe the power of this song, sing by Raconteurs. There is 10 songs on this LP and this is the original list at Leeds festival :

01 Fistfull Of Dollars - Intro
02 Intimate Secretary
03 Level
04 Steady, As She Goes
05 Together
06 Floating
07 Store Bought Bones
08 Bang Bang
09 Broken Boy Soldiers
10 The Christian Life
11 Blue Viens
12 Headin For The Texas Border
13 5 On The 5
14 Hands

4 songs aren't on the LP, not a big problem, but maybe I would love to hear Intimate Secratery. Well, it's a real good Live and even if it's a bootleg, I love this show.
You can also watch the Live on youtube.
Like the intro !

Is this considered rare?
I saw one in my record store for 25€ (about 30$), but thought the price was a bit steep for an unofficial recording.
So the sound quality is great you say? I'm listening to the show right now and it sounds like a good one.
I'm a bit short on money (certainly after i saw the new vault package), so not convinced yet to pick it up.
But is it true that there are only 500 copies made of this? If that's true i might pick it up.

Never trust numbering on a bootleg.

$30 seems reasonable. It is a nice clear recording. Personally I try not to spend much more than $30 on a bootleg, but this one is worth that for the cover image alone.

Welcome to the club, very cool that you're enjoying it ;)

Honestly, though, has anyone ever heard a recording of a Racs show that wouldn't be worth $30?
