    I thought about that too. after I ordered it online. lol. was thinking it would be sweet to just be able to hit sunrise records tomorrow to pick it up, but if it had already been shipped to stores, the news would have likely leaked about the release. maybe in the future. 

    yah, fuck it, I'm in.. lol.

    I'm finding it hard with how many records I order over the internet (that I can't find at my local store).  All those shipping fees and excess garbage make me feel a little guilty.     On the other hand it's a long lost EP of Road Apples songs.. holy shitballs! :)
    yeah, the shipping fees are killer, but honestly, the vinyl prices at local stores often reflect that price anyway, or close to it. 

    I was slightly disappointed to read they couldn't find the studio version of Montreal, but if the live version is nicely cleaned up, then I'm sure it will be just as good.

  • toolietoolie Posts: 363

    I'm really looking forward to this. I recall hearing a bootleg with Get Back Again and Susie Q in the early nineties. Get Back Again was studio quality, Suzy Q was a clean live version. There was likely a few more songs on that cassette tape.  I'm hoping these 6 songs sound really good. I'll play one of their albums and I'm always struck by how good the song writing is. Played In Violet Light a week ago.... damn good stuff. Something new to play this Victoria Day weekend. Be safe and enjoy everyone

    It's legit GOOD. Man, I wish I could find my old CD bootlegs. I'd send em over. There was a fanpage, "Rory's Hip Fan Base" or something like that, that was loaded with live versions and unreleased gems... I'll hunt that down for ya if I can.

    I thought there used to be boots on this site....can't seem to find them. maybe I'm thinking of the other site you pm'd me. not sure why I'd have this site bookmarked if it didn't provide anything.

    Saskadelphia is so damn good. Makes me wonder what else they have in the closet. Hopefully this is the first of many. Kind of bittersweet though, I'd love to hear Not Necessary at an outdoor show this summer.

  • HughFreakingDillonHughFreakingDillon WinnipegPosts: 31,571
    the pictures they've posted on social media of the sheer amount of tapes they have to sift through, it's incredible how much stuff they must have. I do recall they said they were halfway finished writing the follow up to Man Machine Poem before they even released that one, and prior to Gord's diagnosis. Whether they were half finished recording or just writing is unclear though. 

    even if they opened up the vault of live shows, I'd love to have all the shows I went to. I have a few, but not all, and the early ones the sound quality isn't the best.

    I’ve listened to this a few times now and Not Necessary and Montreal are the standouts for me. I think it’s going to be a Hip catalog day for me. 
  • toolietoolie Posts: 363
    Ya I'm going down the rabbit hole now. I don't have any boots from any Hip shows I've been to, going back through my stubs to see if any are out there. So far:
    Red Deer Feb. 20/1995
    Saddledome Nov. 19/2004
    Mac Hall Oct. 28/2006
    Virgin Festival Calgary 2008
    Jubilee Auditorium Sep. 24/2009
    Shaw Millenium Park Calgary Sept. 7/2013
    Rexall Place Edmonton July 30/2016
    Saddledome Calgary Aug. 1/2016
    If anyone on here has any leads to any of them I would LOVE to have them :)

    In Montreal.... the lyrics, "snow is so mericless..." and "Mother's gonna make her look good" show up in the Live Between Us recording, I think.... I can't place what songs atm.
  • HughFreakingDillonHughFreakingDillon WinnipegPosts: 31,571
    they used to play it occasionally during Nautical Disaster I believe

    it'll be interesting to see how often they do this type of thing. it seems to me that reuniting with their old manager Jake Gold has really facilitated the band remaining active, especially with the merch. He actually confirmed that when he "liked" a tweet of mine in that vein.

    The performance with Feist was really gorgeous. Would love to see a full live theatre show with her as vocalist. Would be very different without Gord but I'm sure amazing.

    It was an amazing performance last night. Love the Hip and Feist. Really good song choice as well.

    Agreed. I love Feist, but I'll be the first to admit that I was insanely worried and skeptical about this. I have to say that the performance blew me away; almost gave me a tear.

    just got a "virtual ticket" for a virtual walkthrough of the Bathhouse Studio by the band and you get to submit a question the band may answer (my wife has a visa avion card, got the invite through that). it's on our anniversary. not sure if my wife is thrilled about spending the evening of our anniversary watching the hip in their studio, but too bad! LOL

    Road Apples Box Set looks good. Man I already have Saskadelphia but the live double vinyl & the demos record are hard to resist. My wife is gonna kill me. 
  • HughFreakingDillonHughFreakingDillon WinnipegPosts: 31,571
    bought it. also, if you order the box before Oct 15, your entire order is only $10 shipping in canada. couldn't pass that up. bought a shirt and the stemless wine glasses as well. 

    and yes, my wife is going to kill me also. lol

    Why couldn’t the LP box set contain the red Road Apples vinyl?!  So had to buy that separately along with slip mat and the cd box set too!!  Good thing I bought the wife a new phone yesterday :)

    sigh.... I'm not big on demos and outtakes vinyl.  I usually spin them once and never again.   Live vinyl though... I really want that live show on vinyl.  So basically (like the Metallica Black Album boxset, and the Pearl Jam Vs/Vitalogy Boxset) I'm probably going to buy the boxset just for the live vinyl.  The other part that gets me is that they released saskadelphia first knowing this was coming out.   Creating a lot of double dip positions.  I guess that's good for them financially, but not so great for the environment making a bunch of redundant copies people don't need :(

    I will express patience though.  When I ordered Saskadelphia it showed up everywhere else within a week.   Maybe I can save a few box if it shows up on musicvaultz or amazon.

    my goodness the acoustic version of Fiddler's Green makes me tear up even more than the original version. Here's another good version:
