i doubt an official release is coming any time soon, but you could always rip some files of the cassette audio and get a bootleg done by kunaki. seems like the best we can do, sadly

if i can find a high quality cassette... See full review

yeah, i thought the reissue would have the massive book like the original but i guess not, disappointing but it's still nice that i'll own a copy of this album. i wish they'd do a vinyl release though.

i've had optimal media pressings before that are called "neon orange" but look like neon pink, so this is normal.

this release was pressed at (the actually consistently good) GZ media, NOT rainbo.

i ALWAYS listen to them. and i don’t buy multiple packages.

i honestly think that most people complaining about the GZ pressing didn't actually buy this set, and told everyone else to avoid it based off of prior bad experiences with their pressings. i've had typically great pressings from GZ actually, so... See full review

lower quality jacket scans, different runouts, plus the optimal pressing and packaging is easy to tell.

"limited" all depends on the demand. 'when we all fall asleep' sold 176k vinyl units last year. in comparison, 17k of this live album qualifies as "limited."

there are MANY bootlegs for this record, but they're easily identifiable.

check your copy in different lighting, GZ stamped matrixes can be faint.

JPC[.de] is a german online record retailer that stocks most current EU pressings. their packing is excellent and the shipping isn’t terribly expensive (dhl transferred to USPS). ordering there probably ends up at $40 shipped for this one dylan album.

michael fremer got info from an industry source saying that this US pressing is from united (rainbo closed and moved all of their machines to... united). united stopped putting concrete identifiers on their pressings sometime in 2018, although their... See full review

both pressings are basically the same. same mastering, pressing, packaging, etc. probably the only difference is the copyright information.

normal current third man pressings are 130g, only a few select releases are 180g. 130g is perfectly adequate

don't fall for the $100 prices during covid times, what's happening is that distribution chains halted and record stores that actually have this record aren't listing it here. wait until the pandemic is over before you buy.

Great. Not significantly different/better than the 96/24 files it was cut from, but it’s still better. Pressing and packaging are also top notch for a $33 record.

what most likely happened there is that the original cut was done on all sides at Welcome To 1979, but then United Record Pressing broke the metal parts for the first disc and since the record label didn't want to pay for a Welcome To 1979 recut, NRP... See full review

this mastering of Out Of The Cool is the best one out there. I have an original and a test pressing of this, and while the original is great, the Alto Analogue is even better. since the tape burned up in the 2008 UMG fire, good sounding copies of this... See full review

AVOID THIS PRESSING AT ALL COSTS. I've never heard any other vinyl pressings of Amnesiac, but this sounds like it was cut from a CD (it probably was) and the sound was so bad I had to return it to the record store. I know this might sound like... See full review

now available digitally in the Third Man archive on Nugs .net so if you don't want to pay LP flipper prices you can grab the digital equivalent for $20 or something like that.
posted a comment on The White Stripes - The White Stripes Live In Mississippi. about 1 year ago
it's now available digitally in 88.2kHz/24bit MQA (or standard FLAC) on Nugs .net so no need to really buy the vinyl anymore except for collectability. as much as we'd all love to have the LP, I'd happily settle for the digital.
