I'm betting this gets released on Record Store Day, then an unlimited release after.

You're betting right - RSD release just got announced. :D

This mixing style is typical for late 60's early 70's music.
In that era people were hungry for music that really shows off what stereo imaging can do,
Sounds a little crazy nowadays - but it is neither a faulty pressing/mixing nor a badly system ... See full review

I think the reactions/reviews here are not entirely correct.
No problem, you can dislike the label. Be it for the stupid hipster name, or the general output of some classics which all have this "made cheap, quick and dirty" appeal. But to judge the sound ... See full review

One of my preferred dealers is listing a pre-order release called "Nymphs" by Nicoals Jaar for the 14th of Dezember.

I did not weigh the discs, they are flat, clean and thick - it is more sth. between 140 and 180 gram I think.

Can anybody comment on the stuff that is visible in the last picture?
Is this a Slipmat and a printed inner? What is the third Item?
Do these come with all the Sulatron editions or maybe only a part of them?
Thx / MOS2000

Straight correct. Absolute vanilla release - the only "goodie" is a small printed inlay/title-list with hardly any useful info or imagery.
The inners are not polylined, which adds to the cheap-feel experience.

Nice try UMG,
