Picked up my copy for €12 almost a year after RSD. Beautiful pressing, sounds great! Also comes with lyric sheet.

My copy is signed in the back, bottom corner and the other 3 or 4 copies I've seen for sale have been, too.

This was the only reason why I even acknowledged RSD. I too was lucky to grab one of the last few copies. Not selling this one for any price.

I'm so lucky to have picked this up today. I arrived at the Bellingham record store at 11:45 AM today and got the last copy! I was so lucky. I'm so glad I didn't have to resort to picking this up here for $40 instead I got it for $15. Anyways, this is the best Record Store Day pickup I've had in a while. It sounds so good!
