Sign O The Times Picture Disc - RSD October 24

My record store contact just told me there will be a SOTT pic disc released for the October Record Store Day drop. He didn't give me any more info.

lame

clearly they had at least a little time to put thought into this between the calling off of the original RSD dates this year and the new drops or whatever, they could've done a dream factory config or even a 7" of something interesting with idk 1 more previously unreleased song

but let's throw them a picture disk after we released 5 billion variants of this album just last month

Proabbaly a reissue of the original SOTT 12"single picture disc: https://www.discogs.com/P...se/1327779
Would have been nice to get Camille, Dream Factory and/or Crystal Ball.

Another unnecessary release I cant justify buying!

Excellent lol

If they released something a tad more unique I'd have been first in line

The 7'' vinyl release of SOTT/Witness#1 with the German Rolling Stone october issue magazine

is even better than this.

I'm presuming that it probably will be and we'll have to pay very big money.

About a year or 2 ago, one of the releases was the Double-disc "Bohemian Rhapsody" soundtrack on picture disc and even that was a hundred bucks. eek

I'm a sucker for colored vinyl and picture discs, so I'll probably get these...

...but why didn't they use the front cover picture instead of just the 'Sign O The Times' logo?

eek

I am relieved to see that this is now on the UK site for Record Store Day.

Looks like I'll have to get to Rough Trade East London about 3am again!

I'm a vinyl junkie and even I know that picture discs are the most pointless things in the universe.... especially when they don't actually have, er, a PICTURE on them?

Haha.... please tell me no-one's going to buy this junk.

lol. unfortunately there wil be.

I have something to confess;

I bought the 13 LP SOTT SDE box set (hell i'm happy!!!),

but also the limited re-release double SOTT LP in peach vinyl - and now I regret that. wink))

Although I would kill for that 45 rpm SOTT singles box set that I missed out on.

Anyone ? I'll even suck d*ck for that.

-

See ? ...how complex and stupid people like me can be ?!

So yeah, there sure are enough like me out there who will spend fine earned their $$ on non-picture-picture discs.

wink

You regret buying the 13LP version or the double LP in peach color version?
I HAD to have the double peach LP, but didn't necessarily feel the same for the 13LP version, so I bought the full package on CD instead.
But I'm definitely not buying the RSD version. Useless.

Often I buy the CD version much later, to used in my office.

At home I spin vinyl vinyl vinyl.

Hell in the morning when i get up, i put on a vinyl. Never the radio, that's for in the car. wink

I would put a turntable in my bedroom if I could, but my wife will stop sleeping with me haha. I am grateful for the Bluetooth bookshelf speakers I have. Streaming from my phone is the main way to enjoy music for the most part. The turntable is set up in my basement. The basement is all mine 😂

Lucky you ! A basement all for yourself.

Funny enough, I do have a truntable in my bedroom. wink))

With the accompanied music asside for when i read in my bed.

I go to bed early to be alone, and enjoy this moemtn every day.

I allow myself to read only during 1 lp length.

And then I HAVE to sleep. (Reading and music, both big loves of mine.)

No Prince in the bedroom though. wink

But having the SOTT SDE set rolling loud through the house whenever I'm alone,

Hell I even have a portable for when we go on weekends.

Any idea on how much this will be? Now, this release is not on the list for 10/24 or Black Friday. Possibly cancelled?

Harps

£39.99 in the UK

It comes in the normal SOTT album sleeve which is strange for a picture disc. Most picture discs are in a transparent sleeve so you can view them without having to unseal the record, therefore securing the value, should that be important to you.

I went to Piranha Records in Round Rock, tx and they told me that they received an email on Thursday that this release was delayed. They expect to receive this release next week. So, who knows?
