Since Discogs blocked it for sale you are left to Ebay or just posting something here and seeing if anyone wanting to sell it sees your post. I actually have my copy for sale but I'm keeping it until my next record show before I sell it online.

Good album but the mastering job (if there even was one) is terrible and the music is super quiet. Typical bad label decision to use 180 gram vinyl to try to make it seem special when they should have got a decent mastering job instead. Instead of ... See full review

Looks like New Backwards is getting a vinyl reissue but Ape is just a CD reissue

Since it's from 1984 it would be the original Man's World single but this version backs it with "I'll Go Crazy" taken from George & James instead of "Cootie Wootie" which the US version used as the b-side.

Those releases are with Crazy Horse which is a different band. Just go to the Neil Young & Crazy Horse discography to find those. It's the same thing as how Alice Cooper (the band) and Alice Cooper (the solo artist) have seperate discographies. That's ... See full review

Cherry Red said they are not making more vinyl. They "might" release it digitally at some point. No more vinyl.

RSD is a day for flippers. It's been that way for years. It's not going to get better. If you want an RSD release your choices are stand in line and hope, get a part time job at a record store, or pay flipper prices. The bands, record labels, and shops ... See full review

They're actually selling regularly on ebay for $65 - $120 and Cherry Red said it was in fact an RSD exclusive and is not being repressed.

Never had a problem with Pirates / GZ. To my eyes and ears they make the best looking and sounding vinyl and I've used several companies. Most bad vinyl is because of bands not properly mastering the music and not checking test pressings. Every pressing ... See full review

My copy has no problems at all. Both sides are perfect.

I can see thinking that if you had no idea what you were getting into. I've had a CDR boot of this for 15 years and this vinyl issue is great. Way better than the shitty boot.

Great songs but Crown LPs are always horrible. My copy looks brand new but sounds like a beat up record made of recordings of beat up 78s. It's also completely covered in bumps on both sides. I don't even know how you go about making such a terrible ... See full review

Personally I don't like the last few SP albums at all and would rather listen to Ohgr and the new Tear Garden than current Puppy albums.

The bonus material is a real treat. As others have noted the actual album sounds really bright and painful. Not sure if I'm just not used to hearing it this clearly since I am hearing little sounds and whatnot that I've never noticed before, but it's ... See full review

Wonderful single with The Residents (presumably) playing the backing tracks. Sounds like it was recorded around the same time as The Residents - Assorted Secrets.

So, the front cover says "THIS side explains why Hitler Was A Vegetarian" and the back says "THIS side is usually Swastikas On Parade". So the cover makes it seem like "Hitler Was.." is actually side A but "Swastikas on Parade" is the track that starts ... See full review

Some garage rock hipster kids ripping off Skinny Puppy. I'm sure it sounds cool if you know nothing about the bands they're blatantly ripping off and watering down but I find it embarrassing

Morricone's music for this film is great but this album is unlistenable for me. The dialogue thrown throughout the record really ruins the mood and if I wanted to hear that I would just watch the movie. The White Stripes song does not fit at all. I ... See full review
