    If I could please drag this thread off topic immediately... but I see there that the CD costs £10.99 and the lp is a double costing £29.99!

    By comparison The Terror by the Flaming Lips is also a double LP on Bella Union, only a few months old - it comes with a 7" single and costs £18.99.

    The seemingly makey-uppy pricing of vinyl is odd sometimes.

    i'd say you'd have to have both items side by side to compare before deciding that the pricing is just 'makey-uppy'. i haven't had either in hand so can't say if they compare at all. being new to vinyl though i now know how one small element in the process can increase the price drastically. printed inner sleeves, the weight of them, the weight of the vinyl LPs etc. etc.

    i could go into a whole lot more here but... i won't :)

    Fair enough, sorry about the ranting!
