LOL all you want, with our current Pound/US dollar exchange rate and the cost of international shipping, there's no way I was gonna go for the heavy vinyl+book set. I was just glad they didn't force me into some extortionate courier-only shipping option like some places do. :)


Ah, I was just having a laugh!
I know you Yurp people get rogered for postage as I once lived in several of the unwashed, dentally challenged countries that make up Yurp and the local natives would try to get me to buy things for them and sent to me.

I do think it's odd that they don't have a download option, perhaps that will come about if they sell out? There just seems to be a section of people that don't see the need to physically own something anymore or those that want it in such loss-less formats that vinyl and CD won't do. Personally, I just want to play the songs as I drive my BMW to Olive Garden.


Oh I know, I didn't take it personally to the point where I'm gonna threaten to leave, this place needs all the members it can get! At a guess I'd say there probably will be a download option, but it can't go active until at least the shipping date so nothing to buy yet.

so do you think those "extra circus" songs will end up in the 2nd box set too? i'm still a cd guy and it's a little annoying to just have those tracks as a 7". i have crappy mp3s of the metal circus version with those songs probably and was looking forward to having good digital versions of them finally.

No clue. Reading that NPR article it was clear to see that SST/Ginn were/are being a giant dong-bag about everything but since MC was on Reflex also, I guess that is how they can release it at all? Last Speed II seemed like a huge "fuk you" to them and I'm looking forward to listening to those tracks when I get home (Hi Sam, I'm getting paid to post on the internet at work!). I also didn't know that there was, in the works, an effort to redo all the Black Flag stuff? I say "was".

maybe sst bands will follow the bl'ast model: yeah, we recorded this totally different session during that album with uh, slightly more snare, sooo we're gonna release that.

Discs 2 and 3 are up there as well (disc 2 on now).

I pre-ordered the CD plus book plus 7" version as I couldn't justify the cost for the vinyl version. I'm hoping for an EFA release on Lp just by itself at some point, though.

This band was good. But I have heard each and every song by them at least 1500 times, each. I have also grown accustomed to them having horrible production as part of the husker du listening experience. I will not be buying this product.

Stream it first if you do that sort of thing. There's a version of Everything Falls Apart and the "In a Free Land" 7" (both part of this set) that are already on various streaming services or if you don't, it's up at NPR. You'll be pleasantly surprised at how good it sounds.

NPR was streaming this stuff the other day. I listened to a few tracks.... resounding meh. They've always been one on my top five bands of all time, but I've also always been of the opinion that really early on, they were a pretty average punk band, that couldn't seem to figure out if they wanted to be some arty, Joy Division type-thing or straight-up thrash. I don't think they truly figured out who and what they were about until like half-way though Metal Circus, at which point they became the amazing band we all know and love, and that seemed to only get better which each new record. And yeah, this stuff still sounds like shit to my ears - thin, tinny guitars, cardboard-y drums, etc. It was recorded by a bunch of kids, who barely knew how to play or what they were doing at that point - band, & engineer both. Only so much you can do to polish a bunch of nearly-40-year old turds.

Very fortunate a friend of mine managed to snag me the colored vinyl/book/7" one.

Can't wait to dig in.

As much as I love everything from Metal Circus on I have never paid much attention to what came before. Everything I read about Land Speed Record made it sound like...um, not my thing. The early singles were impossible to find, Everything Falls Apart just didn't enter my radar. So I'm excited to hear this for the first time, essentially. I may decide it doesn't come anywhere near the band they became, but that's okay.

EFA is awesome.

Anyhoo, I bought this because I'm a completist, plain and simple.

It doesn't and I can't imagine that I'll listen to more than EFA and the singles all that much (both of which have moments of absolute brilliance that would foreshadow the band they later became), but it'll still be cool to have. But yeah, I've been a fan since the early '90s but didn't come across EFA until I found the '93 Rykodisc CD reissue at Amoeba in LA about 11 years ago and didn't hear the first few singles until Numero put out an expanded version of one of them for RSD a few years back.
