Suddenly there are like a bazillion sealed copies for sale? Thats weird.

Finally got my hands on a sealed copy — except instead of LP 2, there's a copy of Dan Auerbach's solo album in there. Was bought direct from Warner/Nonesuch, so I'm guessing it's an honest mistake. Purchased via InSound.com which is now defunct. So bummed — anyone ever hear of someone getting a copy missing the correct LP 1?

Such a phenomenal record and presentation. There are still copies of this floating around, don’t pay insane prices. I managed to snag one off Amazon for retail this past week.

Like many of the Wilco issues - this is a premium pressing/package.

This is a phenomenal pressing by Chris Bellman. Flat and I didn't experience any surface noise on my copy like below. I wish as much care was put into other reissues

One of the best albums of the 90's

Excellent quality gatefold. Poly-lined inners too.

My discs have some surface noise crackling, for quieter songs such as Birds & Ships and Ingrid Bergman this does detract from the enjoyment.

At My Window Sad And Lonely sounds very bad at the end of the song. It has distortion across the board. I would say inner groove distortion but there's so much space left for more tracks. Would be ridiculous if it was because of groove distribution.

The sound of everything else is great.

For some reason these are being sold for ridiculous prices. I managed to grab one from the US, imported it to the UK. I paid £24, free postage, I think I got away with not having any import tax however.

THIS is the way every 180g reissue should be done. Clean, heavy vinyl, lined inner sleeves, gorgeous tip-on outer sleeves, and separate lyric sheet. Lacquers and mastering by the great Bernie Grundman is of course the most important part, and they don't disappoint. Highly recommended release.
