Got this last week from Amazon. Cost me £116, but I am reasonably happy with that as P&P was free and it is harder to get in the UK than the US from what I have seen. Listening for the first time now and it is the best I have ever heard this album sound. Haven't picked up any of the distortion issues others have mentioned. The artwork is super impressive. Two large booklets included with the intricate inner sleeves, a sturdy outer box and 4 pieces of vinyl. I love this album and after 25 years of listening this is the best I have experienced it.

So glad I didn’t pay even $175 for this. The guys asking $200+ are just going to watch their listing for this just sit there. Why? Because if you put this in your want list, eventually, as happened to me today, a copy will come up for $115. Even$140, $150...no need to pay even those prices. So it was $135 including everything. It kills me the way people try to price gouge by fishing for these absurd prices. I don’t know what happened, but someone has access to these sealed ‘12 reissues. I almost paid $200 at a local store because about a year ago their seem to be many copies out there for sale.

Is anyone else seeing store listing this as stocking soon (end of June, beginning of July)?

I've ordered one from woodwind & brasswind. They're quoting a July 1 Ship Date but I can't find any info out there about a repress happening. Woodwind & Brasswind isn't the only store that's listing it for sale for around the same time so maybe the news hasn't made it out there other than to distributors. I'm just curious if anyone has any information about this and if I should actually expect to receive my order or not lol. I've been looking for this album for a while now and I'm not interested in paying 200+ dollars for it. I'll happily pay the $100 for the 4xLP Deluxe Edition at retail price though.

I'm cautiously hopeful right now.

Yeah I didn't pay that. Before the current re-stock I ended up finding one at retail in a Newbury Comics location near me. It was $99.99 and that was in May. Then when the recent re-stock occurred I bought another sealed one to hold onto for 90. It looks like the restock is running out at retailers. If this continues to stay in print it looks like this album will just come in waves. Prices will rise to about $200 and they'll release more copies once a year. That's the pattern for the last two restocks. I'll probably unload my sealed copy if/when the price is right.

I just got one for $115. I’d gotten offers for this amount before by having in my want list, just didn’t bite, and they disappeared fast. Can’t say about your current situation. And no, don’t pay $200, those guys shouldn’t be encouraged. Someone has access to wholesale copies, I get low offers of $115 - $140 all the time.

Yeah there’s been a pretty large restock at a ton of retailers :). Seen it as cheap as 85 or so.

I just saw a charge go through on a long standing preorder from Acoustic Sounds in the event that they ever DID receive a restock. Looks like it finally happened! They're evidently still in stock, on sale even. $94 and some change, no tax and $7 shipping. Just $102 all said and done.

My RSD was fantastic today, thanks. I’m in the US and I got the UK Tron Legacy release, I got the box of Ol Dirty Bastard 7’s, Chon’s Grow and Ellie Goulding’s Lights all from the comfort of home lol.

Happy you were able to snag a copy. I actually snagged a second sealed to hold onto haha

Thanks for posting this comment. I saw this a couple weeks ago and set an e-mail notification, placed an order after getting one last week, and it arrived this afternoon! Happy to support your shop too, every order from Plaid Room's been great. Hope RSD went smoothly today!

For anyone interested, the GM of Elusive Disc has changed his tone. Not me but someone i have been conversing with got word from them that they indeed expect to receive copies at the end of August. Finally this might be back in print. DO NOT SPEND 400+ dollars on this on eBay. Do not feed the flippers

I found one at a brick a mortar thanks to an incredibly helpful discogs member who decided to forgo making a little of money on top of the retail to point me in the right direction. Super happy this came through :)

Thank you very much for the reply!

That gives me some hope. I have an order placed with Elusive Disc now. I cancelled the order with Woodwind & Brasswind. I figured having an order in with a vinyl distributor makes a lot more sense than having an order in with an instrument selling website :)

I wouldn't be totally discouraged with the order. I believe these will pop in again soon. We've constantly had them on backorder for the last 3 months or so, but in April or May (can't remember which) we had 75 copies show up randomly. I think we'll see a repress soon enough.

Sure here:
https://www.wwbw.com/Universal-Music-Group-Smashing-Pumpkins-Mellon-Collie-And-The-Infinite-Sadness-4LP-J38710-J38710000000000.wwbw

But be forewarned. I ended up placing an order at elusive disc and canceling my wwbw order. I got in contact with the general manager of elusive disc and asked him what was up with the listing since I couldn’t find anything out there. He said that he’s had that order in for a while and every 30 days it doesn’t show up he adds 30 more days.

I still have the order in for now but I’m not getting excited. I’m have a feeling I’m going to have to refund :(

Elusive disc (large & reputable audiophile webstore) has expected availability on 6/30. So encouraging. I already own it, but it's the earlier 2012 pressing that was cut too hot and has quite a bit of inner groove distortion. Apparently they (quietly) re-cut it in 2014 to fix this (see Discogs entries).
