Well at twenty pound a throw Per 12” disc, that’s still 20 quid over priced... 

dunno, great way to get it all, it would be fun!  but that’s allot of dosh...

It is, especially as one could get most of the original albums at £3 or £4 quid without having to look very hard, and only Soul Folk In Action or We'll Get Over originals would set you back around the £20 mark...and even the 1 disc of 'rarities' is hardly thrilling...and I LOVE the Staples...so if I'm underwhelmed.....

Who is the target market for this release? I would have thought it was people like us, but as many have said, its too expensive for what it is.

the new Gerri Granger record posted above is really good, Richard S was very enthusiastic about it on one of his recent Solar Radio shows, mine shipped yesterday 🙂

I get annoyed by the 'strictly limited edition no re-press' then it gets a re-press

coloured vinyl can have play back issues I prefer to play the black vinyl copy but might get the cloured too if it's interesting

I'm a bit more discerning with what I buy new now (and fewer of 'em) compared to the past

I got that fed up I’ve almost stopped buying many new releases, just a few labels I can trust will be quality, the odd other release I come across.  The culture of creating a rarity before it is released , I just don’t see the point.  Its supposed to be about sharing the music and not ripping off customers. Rarely pay over £12 now.

I'm with you on that one.  I contacted Kimberlite last year to ask if they had plans to repress (and highlighted that their releases were selling for ridiculous amounts on the resale market). Understandably they are a small company and can only afford to press approx 250 of each release and have no plans to press more or repress ... as I guess they make more money from mp3s.  It's not the company that's ripping off customers - they can't afford to press too many in case they don't sell.  I can't see them making much profit from a 250 run 'even' at 50% profit on £12 record its only a £1,500 - I suspect they barely break even on the vinyl!  It's the resellers making the profits. I know some who specifically buy 2 copies (or more if they can) of each new release specifically to make money on them.  Surely this shouldn't be what it's about ... making money and preventing others buying at face value.  ... this is fed by the sometimes ridiculous OVO policy (hard hat ready and waiting!) ensuring that many new and recent releases can never be played if not released on vinyl - the hypocrisy is that some buy CD/mp3 and then get carvers cut ... but somehow that's 'acceptable'?  I've recently seen OFO what does that mean original File/Format only?

P.S. I'm referring to brand new releases here not reissues.

Mine arrived yesterday, love the flip side, always been a sucker for an instrumental especially if it has some organ.

this is great, has an Angie Stone vibe to it 

available on a limited edition CD (50 only) or digitial download, the album has quite diverse songs on it this is the standout track to me but "Dear God" is also fab

50 cds and $15 for download?  Are these artists no longer interested in selling music?  One reason I no longer bother with many of these releases, especially with average ballads you hear every day.

I get why someone would want the CD (e.g., me) but the download prices are expensive but worth it

It must cost more or as much to get 50 cds done than 1000 unless they are homemade job

Digital age has killed any chance of making a living as a singer/musician.

Even mega stars like Peter Frampton complaining about receiving only 0.001 cent from every play on Spotify etc.

But the artists aren’t helping themselves, the Grace Love one above a prime example, accessible to few.  Forget trying to make a rarity, make them accessible to all, they might get more attention.
