I am really conscious of how many reissues I seem to be buying lately. It seems that, ironically, vinyl is the only format that anyone can sell and make money from these days, so a lot of labels seem keen to reissue stuff that is long out of print. And even though the vinyl is probably intended for the new generation of kids who weren't around when the records were originally released back in the day rather than fools like me who were around, it doesn't stop me keep getting suckered into buying the same records again.
Sometimes it's nice to get the same songs repackaged in a new sleeve with new artwork. Sometimes it's nicer just to get it in the same sleeve but on a different colour of vinyl. I guess it varies depending on the band in question.
Sometimes though, I really wonder why I bother. This is one of those times. I like the front cover of this, but the rest of it does not look very nice. And the vinyl itself.. well, the only problem is deciding which of the two colours that I got sent is the most hideous.
This is one reissue that I can comfortably live without multiple copies of. I bought the tour press when they were on tour (see HERE), so I think I'd rather just let these vomit-inducers go. Not that I can imagine that anybody will actually want to buy these after seeing them though...
