    I realized that I have already spent more cash on vinyl this year than in any previous year, and it's still only August.

    1) Completed my collection of Joan As Police Woman's back catalogue on LP, and bought her excellent new covers album on red vinyl & CD
    2) Found a vintage direct-to-disk live record made by my hometown's queer/LGBT pop heroes, Rough Trade
    3) Rekindled my love of Dr. Dre's 2001 with Interscope's terrific-sounding new vinyl reissue
    4) Scored an excellent used copy of David Bowie's Record Store Day release of the full-length demo of "Let's Dance" for, like, nothing
    5) With Teeth definitive edition. Aces!
    6) The new Squarepusher album with bonus 12" single for “Vortrack”
    7) Atticus' Love and Mercy score album on blue-coloured vinyl
    8) Got a really good used copy of Ricky Nelson's Ricky Sings Again reissued by MFSL
    9) A couple of other 12" curios in the used bin, including The Power Station's "Some Like it Hot and The Heat Is On", and Steven Page's last solo album
    10) That bangin' new LP from !!! called Wallop
    11) Single disc of outtakes/highlights from Harry Nilson's RCA Albums Collection
    12) Double-LP soundtrack of live recordings from Urgh! A Music War
    13) Leonard Cohen's Thanks for the Dance but also
    14) Found a good recording of the London Philharmonic doing Holst's Planets on nice quiet vintage LP conducted by Sir Adrian Boult
    15) Picked up the last Natasha Kmeto 7" (really looking forward to her new album soon!)
    16) Steven Wilson's remixed version of King Crimson's Red and the 2019 "Cat Food" live and studio split 10"
    17) Reggie Watts and John Tejada's second Wajatta collaboration, Don't Let Get You Down
    18) The Bob's Burgers Music Album
    19) Picked up the rest of the Watchmen score LPs to go with Bird Box Extended, oh and the Bicycle Pretty Hate Machine 2x12" remaster for good measure
    20) June Tyson's Saturnian Queen of the Sun Ra Arkestra
    21) Joy Division reissues of 12" singles for "Transmission" and "Love Will Tear Us Apart"
    22) Joe Jackson's Summer in the City and Joan Armatrading's self-titled on beautiful Intervention Records remasters
    23)
    Rush's Permanent Waves 40th anniversary edition
    24) Alain Johannes, Lianne La Havas', and PP Arnold's new jams
    25) Couple of Gary Numan reissues (Hybrid & Live in London)
    26) Brittany Howard's Jamie and My Morning Jacket's The Waterfall II in colour vinyl editions
    27) The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill and Autolux's Transit Transit reissues
    28) Fucking grand-daddy of them all: The Stooges Fun House 50th Anniversary Deluxe box set


    Some of these are still en route, but goddamn.

    Any Vinyl Me Please subscribers in here following the latest debacle with them? I canceled my subscription a few months ago anyway because there wasn't anything I really wanted, but I was always open to rejoining if they got something I really wanted (like I did for El-P), but with the way things are now I don't think I'll ever join back.

    I got an email about a vinyl being shipped but I didn't recognize the store front so I looked them up on google. Scrolling through the bands represented by the company and I didn't recognize any of them until I did, the one I that must be coming. I had ordered it via Bandcamp but since I was there I looked at the art again to admire it. Then I saw that they were offering a signed version of the album for only a couple dollars more than the non-signed version, and also that the price I paid on Bandcamp was in-between those two prices. So now I'm thinking a) man, I could have same some bucks and b) man, I could have gotten it signed? because that wasn't an option on Bandcamp. When it comes I guess I'll find out what I got.

    If you're referring to the 3rd party vendor and whether they are working with them, I don't think there's enough evidence to make a decision based on that alone.
    VMP makes a great product and is doing fairly well through their growing pains.
    I will never sign on for a year ever again, but after taking a few months off, I'm now on my second 3 month stint, happy to have had good swaps, and expecting some real gems in the next couple RHH slots.

    Yeah but think of all the stuff you didn't spend money on!

    Oh no, the Vinceron saga was just the tip of the iceberg. Yesterday they decided to jack up their prices nearly 50%! Take a look at the VMP subreddit to get an idea of what's going on. Tons of people jumping ship.

    You're right, I am a paragon of restraint!

    OOF! I saw some of this yesterday, but didn't realize how bad it had gotten.

    I was a member for most of 2016 (which doesn't seem like that long ago), but had to cancel after my job had layoffs that fall. Had always waited for another chance to jump back in, but never did—hell, that MF Doom I just got (which is a VMP pressing, but I ended up getting it off Amazon before they went up and announced a repressing) made me almost get back in the VMP game but I still held off. Looking back there was always something I wanted but just couldn't commit. Been buying more records again this year and thought, ahh—why the hell not, I'll get back in.

    Thank goodness I hesitated again. They've got pretty quiet on social (not the norm for them) since this price hike too.
