Oh dear. The horrible 'new' cover of Viva Hate with that horrible Germanic writing. Why didn't they use the original which was an absolute classic?

Well because EMI recently released the remasters over the last few years. The originals aren't available brand new.

He means why didnt they print the sleeves with the original artwork, its got f*** all to do with being brand new. what u on about?
 

hand in glove

Life is never kind
These are nice. I don't know much about vinyl pressings at all. I just buy what I like. At first I thought these might be dipped in 10k gold or at least have flecks of 10k in the vinyl, but since they're so cheap I guess they're really just dipped in metallic paint. At any rate, I'd still love to have Viva Hate at least. Good luck to you all who have access to these rare beauties.

Hey, I don't mind it, but it's probably more to do with the fact that Morrissey hates it, and it has the critical reputation of an unloved turd. Instead of gold, maybe they could release it on special diarrhea brown vinyl, or something? Hell - I'd buy that.

I can cast a light on this ... have known about this since last week but we couldnt talk about it
Every store is getting a minimum of 2 copies of each .... 19.99 is the price on our system... no preorders being taken it is 1st come on the day ... i work in newcastle store and we are getting 10 of each vinyl .... no staff reservations allowed either.
Hope that helps anyone who cares

Cheers for this mate. Will be popping into eldon square on sat morning early doors and hopefully getting all 3! But shit for the staff though, thought you guys would've got first refusal...

In the bag. 4th to join the queue at the Bull ring in Birmingham at 8.05 - by the time the doors opened at nine around 15 people in the queue. Apart from the limited editions advertised there are a few other Classsic albums reduced - picked up the stone roses for 7.99 (regular vinyl release). There were ten copies of each Morrissey album.within one minute they were gone.

Got all 3 in Milton Keynes. Just me and a couple of other guys interested in the Moz. About 10 others looking at other stuff. 5 copies of each album in this store.

Have to say they really skip a lot when playing them. I have a decent turntable set up and these jump about far more than any other vinyl I own. Always in the same spot as well.

Guess I shouldn't have played them and kept them sealed never to see the light of day. But hey records should be spun....if only they were listenable. Gold vinyl doesn't play as nicely as black? I don't know

I think they are spray-painted gold, that's bound to close up some of the grooves on the records
How much did they cost btw and congratulations on getting all four, i'm not a collector myself but i really should
