Re: Brutal Youth limited edition 2LP gatefold red vinyl

No worries, as there seems to be a dearth of 2013 vinyl vintage on the market, you could assume that you're sitting on a goldmine. Of course this release could even could add extra value as this episode of red draws attention to those pesky hard to get black ones $$$$$$$$

Re: Brutal Youth limited edition 2LP gatefold red vinyl

I've ordered too. This is very welcome as I've been playing the BY Rhino on CD recently and been investigating whether I could find an affordable version of the 2013 vinyl edition. I couldn't!

Re: which of these two long players is MORE of a clunker?

Sulky - of course agree about The Picket. As to the "Two worst things EC has ever done: 1) not following his father's football team, 2) North I understand that there will only be widespread acceptance of my first choice. However for me that entire album should have stayed within their 'own four...
