Just received my purple copy today, after 3 months of waiting. Sounds great, but sometimes I get paranoid thinking the record is dirty because of the embedded surface noise on the tracks.

After the first 400 copies sold out, they repressed it and Boomkat re-stocked in November. Should this one still be limited edition and have a separate entry for the repress or just remove the "limited edition" tag? Apart from that, I assume both are physically identical.

Nice pressing, very simple and clean, minimal packaging. Cool album.

From Leyland Kirby : "The aim is to try and bring down little by little the 2nd hand prices and make sure everyone who wants one can get one at a decent price. I'm not running a big label so sadly the releases can't be available all of the time, but they are certainly not made to be exclusive."

so never waste your money because of these horrendous prices from unprincipled retailers.

I have done a moderate amount of flipping in my time,and make no apologies for that because I only ever did it to fund further vinyl purchases,such as expensive box sets.however,I never ever flipped on this level.obviously I have done it myself so have no right to criticise or judge those who are doing it here,but I do have one concern which I cannot let lie; why is it ok for people to sell this at enormously inflated prices when the artist himself is struggling to get by? I was on James Kirby's mailing list for ages and I remember one of his mailouts was talking about how difficult it is to be an artist/musician and make ends meet.I've no idea what he gets moneywise per record but it must be a mere fraction of these prices we are currently seeing.
I have stopped flipping in the last few months because I cannot,in all good conscience,profit from artists' hardship,especially not a genius like James Kirby.if anything,I am owe him for the pleasure his music has brought to me.
Again,not saying my shit doesn't stink,it's just an observation.seems wrong.

Preorder back on boomkat now - £17 is a good price, I think.

People selling this yesterday on Discogs before (presumably) they could even have received it from Boomkat. Unethical and presumably against Discogs rules.

I will enjoy getting my purple vinyl, opening it up, put it on the platter and running down the worth of it. I bought this for myself and so should everyone else. I am so sick and tired of these greedy people who see vinyl only as an investment.
