this must have been linked to here already?

I don't know, but thanks for that link, brainpang. I had not seen that article and it's always good to hear Joe's thoughts and remarks about his vault work. Where the article alludes to vinyl reissues, I was hoping to see some more titles in the list after October 2017 (Zoot Allures) --- "Burnt Weeny Sandwich," for example. But for now Joe seems to be keeping mum about further vinyl reissues (alas)...

The way that I celebrated the 50th anniversary of AF was to buy a clean mono copy and listen to the shit out of it. I'm not buying this three sided debacle. Sorry!

I see where you're coming from. I have a mono copy, too, but the vinyl is only VG at best and thus pretty noisy. If I thought I could obtain a mono version in *mint* (or even NM) condition for the same price of $25 --- which I *seriously* doubt --- then I might forego this new edition, too. But in my opinion the fresh vinyl and the extras both fully justify this release. In any case, congrats on landing a clean mono copy!

So, allegedly supposedly my copy was arriving Monday, but now it is suggesting it might arrive tomorrow.

I am glad about that.

I was not even old enough to by cigarettes when he died, so, I for one am very glad to have the chance to pick these up.

I am also super glad for all the shit that is done here to propagate the tunes and such.

Still I see a delivery date on 17/11/2017 in jpc.de, amazon.de and saturn.de but today I see a media markt adv in eBay promising delivery on 24-25 Oct if purchased today.
Reliable??

I was on the fence about this release but ended up pre-ordering it last week. So glad I did. It sounds fantastic! I haven’t A/Bed yet from the CD..but either way it sounds sweet and the bonus tracks are worth your time. Even the ads are something special (“Pigs!) not to mention some funny Dick Kunk commentary. Both unreleased mixes sound fab and are interesting. “Here's one for mother!”
America Drinks and Goes Home is great too. Very clear with no sound effects and (pretty sure on this) no stereo panning of the vocal.

Do Me Right/Emma threw me off at first. One benefit of my high frequency hearing loss in one ear is that mono mixes now sound like stereo to my ears. Ain’t getting older great kids???

Got mine yesterday. I'm very happy with the audio quality. Haven't compared to the ZR/UMe CD yet. Maybe this weekend.
