Hi guys / guyettes, I've been looking like crazy for a place to buy this in the UK - only released a few days ago in the US and it looks like a B E A U T Y apart from the shabby box cover

Image

Does anybody know where to get it in the UK, or with a reasonable shipping price overseas?

Any input is appreciated, Thanks!

grrrreen vinyl ... jummy.
this shitty thing on the left is the box???
the whole picture look like a fake...
and besides the beauty of grrrrrren vinyl it sounds like money-makin' ... nothing else - or is there anything special (joshs (?) 12" asshole, ok, that's special... ) ?

sorry for not helping you in any way :roll:

Yep, that's the box! LOL - guess it's intentionally shit

It is real though, on ebay they're going for around $150-250 + Shipping :/

Other places:

http://www.soundstagedirect.com/type-o- ... ords.shtml

http://www.discogs.com/Type-O-Negative- ... se/3248246

But too expensive!

Edit: Soundstage just put the price up from $115 to $175! Cheeky!

here at discogs are better pictures
http://www.discogs.com/viewimages?release=3248246
now it gets interesting...

there the box looks rather ok, but the vinyl-color doesn't match the rest of the green stuff. hard to capture colours, or to get a nice green vinyl? (it's the same with green nail varnish :smug: )

but as I can compare the original bloody kisses to that one I would say they destroyed the artwork, looks like gloss-paper to me and hey - plain white envelopes? are they serious?

I don't know if it helps - but don't buy that stuff - it's just putting money into Roadrunners ringing bag.
If I remember correctly the relationship to the band wasn't the best ... so maybe it's in sense of the band?

Plain white sleeves? :O

I hadn't considered it from the bands point of view, I've always wanted WCD and SDAH on vinyl, but the more I look at it (and the prices) I start to change my mind, but it's all but one of their albums, on VINYL!! Might stick to what I normally get at Christmas, Alcohol, CDs and classic Italian horror movies :)

yes, plain white inner-sleeves, they are lying behind the LPs... (or how do you call that? I know, my english isn't that good)
that's what they should look like
Image

there are the lyrics, the thanks-blabla and some pictures...
and besides that I like the paper of the outer-sleeve... it's thick and matt and simply is different (from 99,9% of the vinyl)
(thats something for the "obsession"-thread. paper! )

I totally understand you from the collectors-point-of-view... :D
but after I stumpled over this really strange "best of" in a shop I read some interviews about that...
and as long as there is hope I would try (no, I am trying!) to get the original pressing...

You could say that the World Coming Down and Life Is Killing Me LP's are the originals :lol: they don't exist elsewhere

Roadrunner fucked Peter Steele his entire life. He's dead. Tempting as it is, I won't pick this up because I think Pete is probably as we speak trying to haunt the offices at Roadrunner. And I am like, the bggest ToN fan, I grew up on them.

I am glad that someone else thinks like that, too :ok:

They owned the poor guy after Carnivore died and he was forming Type O Negative, Type O was shopping demos to other major labels, and Roadrunner said NOPE and threatened legal action, basically blacklisted Type O from getting a deal anywhere cause they had a poor broke young Pete's signature.

The saddest part is no new Type O Negative.
