    My point exactly, why drill a mammoth hole in the thing when that doesn't matter. I understand your point about the amount of music on the disc.


    I suspect they drill the giant hole because it gives a more nostalgic feel to it. After all... isn't nostalgia the whole point of putting it out on vinyl?


    For me at least, it's not just about nostalgia...although it plays a part :D

    My ears hear more depth and a wider stereo field with vinyl. Things seem more "spread out" and easier to pick out the layers of a track. That's the main reason I take the time to make sure I have a decent setup for playing records.

    Are they hand numbered? Thought I read somewhere they were going to be?
    No . . . not hand numbered. I think that was a prior 45 released for the Ten reissue.

    Well I am pleased with the song. I was pumped with the Amazon snippet, then kinda bummed with the live version but this sounds great. Lots of fun--better than Big Wave for sure.

    Woohooo, PEARL JAM!!!

    Bring on September!!!

    Hey neighbor (I'm in 253 too) . . . by any chance do you have the gear to convert these tunes to digital so I can get them on my ipod?
    I sure don't. I can just play my records. Sorry, neighbor.

    I just noticed the two circles at the top that say "Pearl Jam" and "Backspacer" glow in the dark! Pretty cool :D

    I am in PHX and hope to get mine tomorrow, I figure we should. I have the adapters (which were HARD to find) but no record player. :cry::cry:

    BTW the Love Reign O'er Me holiday single I have has the small hole not the big one.

    I'm the PHX area as well. My record player crapped out a while back. Think Stinkweeds might make a digital version for me? If they don't do you think another store might?
    I’ve seen Pearl Jam 25 times, Eddie Vedder 9 times, and Brad once.

    Received mine in Chicago today!!!!! It sounds fantastic. I would like a version for the car, but I don't have the means of making a digital copy. Does any kind soul happen to have a digital version that they could PM me or does anyone know if this is up as a torrent or download anywhere?

    hey does the record itself glow in the dark? you know it is white-ish type. and those colors might secretly glow...
    I doubt it, but might be fun to turn off the lights while crankin' it up. I'm so jealous right now.

    It's here in Indianapolis. Nothing like coming home from a long day at work and finding that envelope leaning against your door!

    Try Hoodlums in Tempe. Got my record player there, and they have the USB turntables. They carry 45 adapters too. :)

    I appreciate the photo that mixedcarton posted, but would anyone mind posting a few more? I would love a closer look at the vinyl color and both sides of the packaging. I'm in Raleigh, NC and I'm still waiting for my copy to arrive.

    Thanks guys!
