    sorry to resurrect a really old thread, but do any of you know that on iTunes I bought 154 SP songs for $11.99? Demos, lives, rarities, it was fantastic. I'm in the Canadian iTunes store if that makes any difference, but it was one helluva deal. And I previously had all the box sets and whatnot, and still many songs I had not had.

    Check it out to see if it's still there at that price.

    Was this recently or just a year or so ago?

    that happens to me at home too. it's weird. I get this "internet explorer cannot open the site" or something like that, then IE just shuts down completely. Been happening to me for a while now. Strangely, at work, where everything gets blocked, I can access it.

    probably was a year ago. so I wasn't sure if the deal was still on or not.

    I still like the Zwan album better than anything made after Melon Collie. I'm surprised more SP fans weren't into Zwan.

    Love the Pumpkins' early stuff...all up until Adore.
    Favorite song: Hummer

  • When it comes down to it they couldve called Zwan the Smashing Pumpkins, considering Billy uses the name now

    I feel like a main turn off to many of the fans was the change of the name "retiring it", because as soon as Billy went back to it many started flocking to them again

    props for Machina II

  • Listening to Mellon Collie right now for the first time in a while. And I'm thinking, "Why the fuck have I not listened to this in this long?!!!"

    This happened to me with Nevermind on Friday.

    Jimmy Chamberlin is one of my favorite drummers, and I love Gish and Siamese Dream. I honestly think the Pumpkins jumped the shark with Mellon Collie. I saw them at Lolla 94 on acid and they were amazing...

    Saw them in Chapel Hill, NC on the Mellon Collie tour without Jimmy and they sucked large. Garbage opened and were 10 times better, in my opinion. They really were missing something without Jimmy.

    Saw them at the LA Invasion in 2007 and they sucked again. What is it with Billy's fascination with just noise??? Making feedback and weird sounds for 10 minutes to me is time wasted when you could have played 2-3 more songs...

    Billy's talented, no doubt, as are the other original members. But BC's self-importance got in the way of him just making awesome music. I'm not saying there are no tracks on their post-Siamese Dream albums that I like. I like lots of their 'later' stuff, but Siamese Dream and Gish are the only records they have that I listen to front to back and skip nothing. I like the Zwan record better than anything released after Siamese Dream.

    Despite the stuff I dissed in this thread, I do consider myself a Pumpkins fan. I just have no interest in seeing them live anymore and don't care about their new music. That's my 2 cents.

    I thought there was another Pumpkins thread, but just a heads up, there’s a 1998 official bootleg of Adore songs solo going on sale for 1 day only, This Saturday.


    Also, Machina reissue is confirmed for next year.

    Ordered Live at the Viper Room. Was a little late on the site and only autographed ones left. 7 months into the year and thats my record budget pretty much gone for the year now. Probably only going to be able to purchase a couple of regular priced LPs later this year now. Praying for no 10c Vault. Never thought Id say that.

    Also never thought Id say this but after collecting for over 25 years Im just about done. Prices getting out of hand. I know I dont have to buy this stuff but when you are a collector its never that easy.

    Isn't Viper Room the 2nd vinyl released?  What happened to the first one (live in Japan?).

    It is. I'm not sure what happened to that release actually. I thought I ordered it but then never got it and have not heard anything about why I didn't get it.

    Going to pick up a copy of viper room eventually.   
    I actually want the unsigned version more than the signed one.  He has a terrible signature.  It’s more like print :lol:

    I was backpacking when viper room went for sale.    My wife went to grab me one and the only one left was a signed (silver?) copy.  I guess it's better than nothing.

    I'm guessing given how short these went on sale, and how you kind of had to be in the know, that these won't be cheap to track down on secondary markets?
  • cp3iversoncp3iverson Posts: 8,458
    Hey any version is cool to have.  His signature just makes me laugh.   It’s very legible at least.   I think these will be expensive. Seems all SP vinyl is.

    What is V3?  They have a new album on their website but no mention of this V3 you speak of?
