Not really. If you want limited runs like that you should subscribe to the record label newsletters of your favorite bands. I pre-ordered mine through the Polyvinyl store for like 17 shipped when it was released.

What do you mean 'not really'? It is impossible to find after the fact. I knew it was coming out, I knew it was limited but it sold out too soon for me to take advantage of it and is now impossible to find. I am subscribed to the newsletter. No need to be condescending about someone missing a release and lamenting the fact that it's no longer available anywhere.

Geez.

Oh sorry. Nah, this time it was my own stupidity that made me miss it. Usually you can always find a copy later for a couple bucks more but this release seems to have just gone with the wind.

It'll probably be identical to the limited release of RSD, making the people that paid far out the rear end for it seem like even bigger dupes. It wasn't even numbered or anything.

Apparently these have been available for a long-rear end time and still haven't sold out, so either people have overlooked it or Woven Hand isn't as big as I'd thought, but Burnt Toast Vinyl has Test Pressings for sale of both The Threshing Floor album on blue vinyl and Consider The Birds album (of which there are only 15) for $25 each.

They also have Test Pressings of Mt. Eerie's Live in Copenhagen triple vinyl for $40.

I don't have much experience with test pressings but they seem like cool little collector's items for those interested.

Also, Consider The Birds never got a European vinyl release iirc and the European release of The Threshing Floor was bland as hell. This one's a really nice gatefold.

You know, if you're into that sort of thing.

Nice! Maybe it's just the picture, but that looks much more light blue than seafoam green.

E: I just woke up and had Hey Moon in my head from the start.

Yeah, I contacted them about it. It is mottled but darkish blue. I too thought it would be green, but nowhere on the site does it state so; the mottled one is in fact blue.
They said the other blue vinyl version was really light blue, so I did get the right one.

It sounds superb, btw.

I'm starting to worry that evil mail goblins snuck into the post office somewhere along the line and ate mine. It figures that this would happen for the package that I consider to be the best yet.

edit: They're already hilariously over reacting to this in GBS. Oddly enough the people reacting the worst are the ones who don't even like Jack White. I'm sure there's plenty more where that came from in the Vault's comment sections.

I love the GBS post that says Jack White is a bad guitarist because of an ICP collaboration.

The Vault is incredibly knee-jerky when it comes to the teeniest things, so I assume it's a cluster gently caress over there.

edit:
Speaking of Third Man Records, where's that special edition of "Rome" they announced ages ago?

Let's see what I've gotten in the last 2 weeks.

First up Clap Your Hands Say Yeah's latest album "Hysterical" on limited-to-500 blue(ish) vinyl and the latest Girls album "Father, Son, Holy Ghost on black and white vinyl with a bonus flexi-disc. Never even seen one of these. It's pretty cool but I can't get it onto the middle record player pin thing (there's probably a name for it) because the hole is too small and I don't want to force it. Oh well.



Also got the The Flaming Lips with Prefuse 73 and The Flaming Lips with Lightening Bolt EPs, and I finally got a cool black and blue colour and no record sleeve splits. Score! Also, Beirut's latest album "The Rip Tide on limited clear vinyl.



Ordered a copy of Lookbook's limited-to-500 vinyl release of "Wild At Heart" and instead got a copy of Decibully limited-to-500 vinyl release of "World Travels Fast"... ListeningPartyRecords immediately sent me the correct record and told me to keep the Decibully one... which I already had, but you can never have enough (free) copies of such an underrated band's album.

Also, Deerhoof's "Milkman" on limited-to-500 copies strawberry vinyl and a copy of Mark Kozelek's latest live album on clear vinyl, limited to 200 hand numbered copies, in a nifty packaging.

'Owen - Ghost Town' On clear vinyl. Sweet little album.
'Dirty Projectors/Bjork - Mount Wittenberg Orca' Actually blind bought this yet being a fan of both I was willing to take the chance. My copy came with a photo copy of the cover, signed by members of the band. Also, the cover is one of those lenticular ones, but this is the first time I've seen the effect work this well.
