A Paranormal Evening at The Olympia

Post by alicefannor » Sun Aug 19, 2018 6:02 am

Thought a thread about the new live album would be appropriate.
What version are people getting?

Just pre-ordered the vinyl picture disc

A recent official tweet shows footage as well!

Fingers crossed there will be a video release at some point.

While I still love vinyl, I recently bought 2 "New" & sealed vinyl Lp's at a record show. My findings are that the process isn't much different than previously used. A warp on 1 caused a skip & there's nothing that can be done about that. But, when buying "Used' you can look for a serious warp & other scratches. Sure, returning is an option but what will they send next? :bam:

I collect main line albums on vinyl and cd but this live album will only be CD.
If they did a sexy box set like raise the dead (with blu ray, vinyl, cd) then i would gobble that but, but sadly we just get audio, no visuals for us naughty boys :(

I had preordered through Amazon.com.au but I received an email today telling me that the CD has been cancelled. The CD has been deleted from a few Aussie sites.

U.S. release date isn't until Fri. Already released in the U.K. w/shipping available to the U.S.
So sorry to hear of your difficulties but, you should be able to secure a CD copy somehow.

It shouldn't be out here either. Release date in UK is also 31st.
Amazon haven't sent theirs out yet, and I doubt anyone else should have done. If they have they shouldn't have done.

Sorry, I was trying to help but the U.S Amazon site listed 8/31 right up front so, I presumed that it had been. Had to click twice into U.K Amazon site to see 8/31. :smack: Only 2 days away! Plus a wait for the Post. xjumpingx

I have to say that these releases can be a right pain.

I ordered the CD and Red / White vinyl from Amazon months ago. I then found out about the additional 'very limited' picture vinyl and ordered that from EMP (Amazon aren't / weren't stocking it). Neither packages have been dispatched at the time I'm typing although I did selected free posting from Amazon to save a few pounds.

I then walk in to HMV and they have the CD for the same price same as Amazon and the picture vinyl for £3 less than EMP. I tried cancelling both items whilst in the store but neither will allow me as they are being 'processed' so I don't get to see or hear any of the releases on release day, whereas if I was a casual fan I'd have 2 of the 3 now and for less money.

Hindsight eh!

I got an email from amazon late last night saying both the coloured vinyl and the CD will be delivered today, although they haven't arrived yet.

Caved and listened on Spotify while waiting for my vinyl.
First impression: I like it a lot

As with Paranormal, I am confident that the fidelity will be superior on vinyl compared to stream
