    Figured I could post this here since it does deal with vinyl--sort of. Got the update today for the "lost" Caustic Window album by Richard D. James. The vinyl is being sent over for ripping this weekend. Did anyone contribute to the Kickstarter? Looks like all sides are going to win here. I paid my $16 and look forward to see what will happen. Anyway, e-mail update #5 below.

    Project Update #5: The Record Is On It's Way To The Studio That Will Do The Ripping!
    Posted by James E. Thomas ♥ Like
    Good News, Everyone! </farnsworth>

    The vinyl record is on it's way to the studio to be ripped, so it's not much longer until we all finally get to hear the Caustic Window LP!

    I suspect by Monday, 9 June or so we should have word how the process went, and at that point I should be able to give you an update on when the emails will go out with the vouchers for your digital download codes. This will most likely happen sometime next week.

    As mentioned previously, you will be able to download the Caustic Window LP in FLAC, AIFF, and MP3 formats (all of them - you don't have to choose!) with your voucher code. Please note the voucher code will be for a one-time use and will expire after you download the record in the different formats.

    If you purchased it via Kickstarter or PayPal, you will get the email at the same time as everyone else - and an announcement will be made here that the emails have been sent. The email addresses we will send to are the addresses you used to back this project on Kickstarter, or the email address you used to purchase it via PayPal.

    Also watch for other exciting announcements - more to come!

    Picked up Parquet Courts - Sunbathing Animal on vinyl this weekend. For what it's worth, there's a download code inside, even though it's not mentioned on the packaging.

    Yeah we did, and it was fucking glorious. I'd never heard NIN sound like that before.

    Picked some gems from the clearance bins. Not bad:

    Ahmad Jamal Trio - S/T
    The Kinks - Greatest Hits (Canadian best of comp on Marble Arch)
    Velvet Underground - 1969: VU Live

    Got the second Chelsea Wolfe/King Dude split on splatter vinyl. Looks very cool. Didn't think I'd ever get it because it's $50-70 on discogs, but they were selling them at the show last night.

    Ordered Neil Young - After the Gold Rush and Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere today.

    And...U-Turn audio finally shipped my new turntable. Now I need to get some good speakers before it arrives.

    They are insanely expensive for original copies. The bootleg sounded excellent. Got it from 1234 Go!

    Do you know a timetable for that? I guess this could potentially be that.

    Not sure what the time table is. This year was the target I was told. They haven't rolled out yet as far as I know.

    What makes me think that's possible is they also had the Self-Titled and Health and Efficiency.

    it's certainly possible. i wasn't aware of a bootleg of health and efficiency. but I would have thought the official channels would have mentioned it if they were out (e.g. rough trade, http://this-heat.com/index4.html, the twitter account, or wire)

    Oh shit, Jared, good to see you posting in here.

    Brian Eno/David Byrne - My Life in the Bush of Ghosts
    the Cure - The Walk (mini LP)
    Leo Kottke - 6 and 12 String Guitar
    Odetta - Best Of
    the Smiths - That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore (12")

    And Bryan, it was really great seeing you. That Slayer record was fucking ridiculous; instant headbanging. The Blind Lemon was quite good as well, but I'm really happy we got to finish Soultrane. I had listened to side 1 but had been saving "Russian Lullaby."

    EDIT: ps - I'm drinking the Black Hand bomber right now. Tasty.

    Nice gets.

    I just swooped an old Zappa as well

    Zappa - Chunga's Revenge (white label promo)

    Also, got some other things on my trip up to Santa Cruz to see my brother. They have three pretty good shops in such a small walking distance. It's killer.

    At Metro Vinyl:

    Pink Floyd - Dark Side (MFSL pressing!)
    Tool - Lateralus (the recent pic disc pressing)
    Sufjan Stevens - Illinoise (Superman cover) FOR THIRTY DOLLARS! The guy behind the counter had no idea what he had. So awesome.

    At Logos (a very cool book/record/stuff store):

    Bill Evans / Jim Hall - Intermodulation (80s Japanese press)
    Billie Holiday - At Jazz at the Philharmonic (80s Japanese press)
    Oliver Nelson - The Blues and the Abstract Truth (70s ABC press)
    The Impressions - The Impressions (og mono press, in rough shape for 3 bucks)
    The Supremes - Where Did Our Love Go? (1964 stereo press)

    Where were we talking about albums that have appreciated in value since we bought them? I was entering some stuff in Discogs yesterday and was pleasantly surprised to see that my copy of Regina Spektor's Soviet Kitsch (bought for $15 several years ago) is now selling for $150ish.

    Ods, at Metro I once found the Grizzly Bear "While You Wait for the Others" live on KCRW 7" for $3.99. Sealed and everything. They let a lot of things slip through cheap.

    The Beatles are reissuing their mono albums this Sept. Back to the tapes (or at least the safety masters) with no digital processing in the chain. Pressed at Optimal in Germany (a damn good pressing plant). All art and packaging to be carefully replicated. Preorders being taken now.

    Yeah the Sufjan was just sitting on top of some stuff they hadn't priced yet. I was walking around the store and I told the guy a few times that I might buy it and he was like yeah yeah I'll look it up... he didn't for the whole time I was there. At the end I asked him if he looked it up and he sheepishly said no and quickly typed a few things into the computer. I imagine he clicked on the wrong pressing or something because it routinely goes for 75+ online. So either he's a homie or a dumbass. Either way, I'm stoked.

    So the most recent reissue is still readily available, but Chelsea Wolfe's Ἀποκάλυψις is available for pre-order on transparent smoky gold vinyl. Even more exciting is The Grime and the Glow coming on black smoke vinyl, and that album has been $150-250 on discogs. Just pre-ordered mine.
