One of the standouts in my collection, start to finish raw White Stripes goodness. Very fortunate to have this one

How is the pressing on this? I just found out it was pressed at United Pressing and I've had some real issues with records from them in the past. Anyone have any issues with this copy?

Does anyone know if this is the same music found on the various unofficial BBC Sessions LP's, like:

label C on the red vinyl wasn't glued flat on my copy

Finally had a a couple hours to listen to this release I was able to get on RSD 2016. To my dismay, the album I purchased came sealed with two copies of the album number 2 (red vinyl), and no album number 1 (white vinyl) in it. I don't see any other responses from anyone else this has happened to, and I don't see any information on this specific packaging error. Anyone else out there get two copies of disc 1 or disc 2? I'm assuming my copy of the white vinyl is out there somewhere. :)

Street date for Canada changed to May 6th at distributors, so probably more copies to come.

Not sure why the prices are so high. I imagine it is not that limited and there will also be a standard black vinyl released later. My local store just got some more in and you can buy it through bull moose for under $28.

Volume 1 sounds amazing, Jack and Meg at their best. Especially compared to their earlier days at the gold dollar and most other live albums, it sounds perfect. The guitar is beautiful and clear even when it's dirty and Jack's singing was at the level of the album recordings. The set list is special too, I've never heard Boll Weevil played so beautifully and Baby Blue is just a fucking special recording.

Volume 2 sounds like they were maybe being overworked, jack was having trouble singing, the sound quality is closer to their live in Tokyo release. The voice overpowers the mix and the guitar is trying to elbow it's way in, maybe the amp wasn't the one Jack was used to using. The best part of volume 2 is the set list. "I Think I Smell a Rat" was the most vicious song in the set, you can hear Jack venting some of his frustration with the situation in that one.
And of course Meg, she's always perfect.

For Europe, I saw it on in the Netherlands. Does someone have experience with this seller ?
