    Depends whats on the vinyl, for example i haven't opened my Seventh Tree 7" singles because i have no desire to hear the remixes that are on the CD anyway played again, ever, in any medium.



    I'm a bit of a "sealed up" perfectionist too.  I am not looking forward to having to open up the Deluxe Box set to get at the DVDs.  OCD?, just a smidgen.  :)
    Though we may deserve it, it will be worth it.
  • Well i'm hoping the deluxe box won't be sealed with anything, just a lift-off lid. If it's sealed with cellophane i will take the wrapper off but if there's a sticker on the cellophane i'll cut around the sticker or if possible peel it off and stick it inside the box somewhere. That's my level of OCD, i don't mind taking the cellophane wrapper off but i won't throw away any stickers that are on them [-X

    By the way for people who are after if there's a Wolf Lady on eBay right now

  • Just went through folders and folders of old pictures and found these pics that I took about 3 years ago, my then-Goldfrapp-collection, before the horrendous incident with my mother and when every precious music item I owned basically got stolen. Rare CDs and records, collecting for years, some signed specifically for me with my name on it and everything, spending all of my money quite a few times on these things... just for them to be ripped out of my hands by a woman that haunts me to this day.

    I remember when I won that contest on Facebook in which I won a Seventh Tree Special Edition slipcase signed by Alison and Will. That was such a happy day. It pains me not to be able to look at it from time to time and truly appreciate it.

    Ok, sorry for the depressing back-story, here are the pics -

    You have been?? I don't think so? If you were I think I'd remember it?

    Nope, none of it. The only thing in that collection I had again was the Head First vinyl because I bought another (because it was on sale at a store).
  • I shed a tear for the Seventh Tree Vinyl alone. My god that's a rarity of it's own, unless you want to pay over 100 on Ebay. And the Felt Mountain Vinyls... god. I know what it's like trying to find these. Took me years to track down the damn Human Vinyl. I'm sorry for your loss. I feel for you.

    If you've ordered that deluxe box of TOU I can only hope it stays safe and inspires you to collect again :)

    Why yes I have :) I don't think I'd ever spend that much money collecting them again. They were fairly cheap when I bought them years back, but they are really expensive and hard to find these days! Plus I bought them mostly to own the material, which I still have.

Howdy, Stranger!
