Since the top two options are the same sans the autographed part, I'm assuming that if you manage to place an order of the upper left one, you're guaranteed to get an autographed version. I'm assuming that product goes away or goes out of stock once 300 sell.

I can't spend a dime this month. Hoping some of the blue lps will still be around a few days after the release date.


Edit: 18 bucks for a cd? Is this store operated by sam goody?

Definitely not worth $60 when it doesn't even include vinyl. Side note: Will the "super deluxe" bonus tracks be included in a digital download with the vinyl?

I'm a die hard gaslight fan, but I'm gonna pass on this and it actually has me rather annoyed. Gaslight has always embraced vinyl as the 'best' way to listen to their music. Having to get the vinyl separate from this is kinda an insult. I mean, I guess you could argue "you can always make the bundle include the vinyl for $80" but its the spirit of things... the vinyl feeds tacked on rather than the intended way to listen to the album.

I'm guessing it's difficult to convince a major label to release your first record with them on a medium that has such a niche market.

How niche is it for gaslight? I wouldn't be at all surprised if > 5% of Gaslight album sales are vinyl. Sure its small, but its large enough that it should at least get some focus. How hard would it be to have an option of the super bundle that costs 70 and includes the record?
