all this useless beauty: vinyl

Postby supplydavid » Wed Mar 07, 2012 12:16 am

I obviously missed the memo on this one, having recently decided to add the missing vinyl "LP's" to my collection when I embraced the CD. I have made steady progress picked up "Out of Our Idiot", King of America, Blood and Chocolate and Spike. Suddenly i look for "Beauty" and see crazy prices, anyone know the story....I presume a very very limited release?

The only vinyl copy currently for sale on Discogs is selling for about $41 USD (plus shipping). It's shipping from a seller in Germany who says it's in near mint condition. The listing if anyone is interested:

I'd spring for it but I have more urgent things on my plate on which I should be spending that money. Tsk tsk.

I have a vinyl copy of ATUB that I have hanging up in my house (right next to a signed copy of Aim and Delivery Man). I found it in a random mall record store discount bin maybe a year or so after the album originally came out. It was the only time I ever saw it for sale originally. I know now if goes for at least $40 for a decent copy. I wish they would reissue those 90s EC albums on nice new 180gram. It would be cool to see this one and MLAR be available at a reasonable price.

The mid/late 90s were Vinyl's lowest point in terms of sales. Most titles from this time period are worth decent amounts of money right now.

I bet MLAR and ATUB would sound superb on the MoFi reissues - I'm waiting for GH to reach me from the States and both TYM and AF sound sublime especially the bass work but MAIT was the remastering that most pleased me especially with more John McFee !!

Hey guys, does your vinyl copy of BEAUTY come with an insert sheet? I got mine of ebay for about $30 and no insert, but some copies I have seen on ebay seem to have an one.
Can anybody post a scan?

Thanks
TC

My vinyl copy came with just a polythene inner sleeve and no insert so I'm not sure if there ever was an insert - but any copy would be welcome !!

My copy has a LP size insert , merely a flimsy page with the lyrics and the recording credits.

It is , of course, missing many of the images in the CD edition, that I discussed with it's designer , Steve Averill, here -
