Will this ever see an "official reissue"? I sure hope so. I just refuse to buy anything that Plain Recordings does now. Sad that this record hasn't yet gotten the proper reissue/remaster with the love and care it truly deserves. Hope we will see one soon

As stated prior: does not sound that shitty like other Plain stuff. But as you can see from the cover: Plain has not interest at all in providing a good product. Just the CD cover enlarged so the motive gets blurry. It's a pity that the vinyl "boom" helps labels like Plain, 4 Men with Beards etc. to exist by supply and demand.

6 for selling at 150€, Jesus Christ.
One double LP on ebay for 300€
The link someone posted for the cd doesn't work anymore
This album has been in my wishlist for almost 10 years.
I think i'll never find it a reasonable price....

IMHO, there's no way this lp is ~$130 better than the cd I bought in the 90's. Let's all get a grip here! It sounds just fine on cd.

The rumour is Plain Recordings are often mastered from CD anyway so there's no advantage to owning the LP. I'm holding out for an official reissue.

Agreed. Plus the collectiblity vanishes when the repressings eventually come.

Forgot to post this, but back in November I asked Low on twitter if there were any plans to repress "I Could Live In Hope" on vinyl, and they replied with this:
"Maybe in the next year..." followed by a space invader emoji. https://twitter.com/lowtheband/status/1062965056684613634

So just hold off on buying from the resellers for now. There's a decent chance that this album will get the 25th anniversary treatment.

Okay. I'm randomly just browsing through and my eyes almost bulged out of my head over the fact I see this going for at the lowest (no pun intended) of $130 to $180!
I bought this years over five years ago at an HMV for around $35 or just a little over!

SAME. I bought it for like $25 at Jackpot Records in Portland years back. I didn't know until I showed a friend my Discogs collection and he flipped over the price of this. It's the most valuable record I own.

Ok so it came. This pressing is absolutely fine, sounds great. I have a good cart and can't notice what people say about the S's in slide. very worth picking up. Score 1 for Plain records, just 1 tho.

is the fact it's the only record Plain didn't mess up the reason the prices are so high these days? would love a copy of this but definitely not willing to drop $100+. would be great if there was another pressing in the future.

as far as plain recordings go, this one isn't too bad.

Aside from the sibilance issue on "Slide", the rest of the album actually sounds pretty good on my setup. This is the only Plain record I've heard that doesn't sound like total garbage. Glad I picked it up new for $24 seeing as it's going for $100+ these days.
