Amazon UK offering a red vinyl version available from March 2021

My copy also features C/D labels on the A/B LP. Regardless of how good this sounds(I still have to give it a spin) they totally dropped the ball with this pressing.

Massive fan of this record, always bummed about the early 00’s mastering treatment it got - height of the loudness wars. This cut from Well Made Music in Cleveland is a breath of fresh air. If it sounds dark to you, you likely have that harsh, maxed out brickwalled master firmly placed in your ears. This plays really pleasantly on a VPI/Grado Green + 8MZ stylus. I’d put this toward the top of the list of CD-only albums from the 90’s/early 00’s that were never made with any consideration for a vinyl release. Re: the major label licensing without band consideration, this is unfortunately the way the major label cookie crumbles when they own the master, and is how virtually every first vinyl release of a major label album from this era goes down.

Everyone going off about not having the band's consent. Who cares. The label has a contract with the band and own the recordings. At least the label pushed a vinyl release forward, even though it sadly came at the expense of Adam. Despite the sloppy mix up with Mexican Wine, as long as they tried to do the best master possible with the digital files that were available, then this is a solid job.

Good press for sure. A little bassy and lacking in high end I found but nothing I found completely unlistenable. Sorta wondering if this press was a rush job as a response to Adam Schlesinger's death and if the pressing plants or engineers didn't take enough time to get approval from the band or make the release sound as good and as crisp as it should. I'll take this for now but I wonder if any future represses this may get will sound better and be handled better.

Apparently, there is going to be 2 more pressings of this. One on Sales blue vinyl exclusive to Bullmoose as well as a Bullmoose exclusive white vinyl named Halley's Waitress apron. Don't pay flipper prices for this as I think there is definitely going to be a standard pressing on black vinyl if you wish to not get the RSD or the limited versions that are coming out soon.

this sounds super clean! i'm very happy with real gone music's RSD releases. this and spacehog's resident alien are by far two of my favorite releases from the 2020 RSDs!!! worth picking up both if you can get them for a good price.


November 27, 2020

this sounds really solid and the disks look really unique. if you can find it. grab it. rip adam..

Great pressing. It's a shame this wasn't ok'd by the band before release (Just look up Chris Collingwood's Instagram posts about the release). Another downside to this release is that "Peace & Love" and "Bought For A Song" are connected on the original 2003 release. These songs are on separate sides of the album now, so instead of fading the transition between songs, it just cuts off full stop and picks up at that same point once you flip the album. Not a huge deal, but if songs are meant to be connected, KEEP THEM CONNECTED!

It kind of annoys me that my local record store didn't carry a single copy of this album, not even on their website. I was hoping to find a copy on Discogs for a reasonable price, but no. I tried to go to Ameoba's website, but it was long gone by the time I got there. With COVID, I honestly didn't want to leave my state, and there aren't many record stores in my state and none that would carry this album. So I ended up buying it online for $50, which by the looks of it, is a little too high. I'm not happy to see the typo, or that the band wasn't involved. I'll likely keep it, but I honestly wish that we could just not have any more record store days until this pandemic is over so I can comfortably shop for what I want instead of having to pay jacked up prices online because the good record stores are 60 miles away in another state.
