RR still trying to make a buck off TON even after Peter's death. Something Pete actually predicted himself.

Doesn't surprise me though. This label is skum.

True, RR have been after the buck since the mid 90s but on the other hand I've wanted "World Coming Down" on vinyl for a while since I don't think it was ever released. And as far as people going for money, the Type O vinyls out there being sold are really pricy - wonder if they'll do individual releases?

Green vinyl albums and bumper stickers...? Is RR for real??

Apparently so.

"Interesting" photos as well, if you take a look at the enlarged pic of the set...

Remastered albums, unreleased tracks, unreleased footage? Yes, thank you.
Vinyl discs and stickers? No thanks.

Wolf47- I have to disagree completely my friend. I am not a fan of CD' being reissued and remastered to justify spending more money to get a demo or a track that was on the cutting room floor when the album was recorded. Rather, the only reissues I would consider buying are ones like this, where they are in a different format, or at least a collection of hard to find formats centrally located in one place. I may have to ask for X-Mas!

Goddamn thee merry gentlemen.........

Bruno, I understand your point of view as well.

There's just been all of this Type O 'previously unreleased' stuff around for years that it'd be nice to have all that in one pack plus maybe some new goodies as well.

I'm just wondering "anything new?" on this one.

Personally when it comes to vinyl, or remaster, or definitive version or whatever - I really hate having bonus tracks on the end. I like experiencing great albums as a whole and hitting silence at the end, not some live track or cover.

Don't get me wrong, I love the bonus stuff - just not tacked on the end. Any time I listen through "World Coming Down" (and I've done that more times than would seem sane) I skip "Day Tripper" at the end. They should have put "Stay Out of My Dreams" on there instead...

Rant over! haha.

Cynic, yeah I agree, I hate when they mess with the original release, add bonus tracks etc. Just leave it as it is minus re-mastering or any treatment to make the original recordings sound better.

Worse yet, some idiots add demo songs right in the middle of the 'special edition' album = first you get the demo version, then the actual album version. Now, that's REALLY annoying!!

And for Demos, I don't care for any 'demo versions', cos I don't think I've ever heard one that was better than the album version.

But CDs dedicated for all the rare tracks, previously unreleased stuff, I am all for it! Plus all the DVDs, the making of... etc, great stuff!
I think especially Mastodon did a brilliant job with the Blood Mountain and Crack The Skye "making of" DVDs.

But no, I don't think anyone should mess with the original album. Just leave it as it was, thank you.

I can agree with Cynic on the fact that certain Type O vinyl is hard to find. Such as World Coming Down. While Id rather have the original vinyl pressings, if I can't find them by X-Mas I might just have to cave and ask Satan Claws for this one. Ugh. I just hate the idea of RR profiting off this crap.

As much as I hate gimmicks, there are 3 other members of the band still living. I will be following each of them as close as I can to see where their creative energy goes without Peter to bring them together in his figurative cauldron. I might also petition to have their catologue collectively named "Songs I have sex with my wife to". RIP Pete, and thanks for turning my lady on everytime I play one of your CD's ;)

While Johnny and Kenny continue to make music, Josh has opted out of the business. He shaved his head and became a NYC Paramedic. His decision actually goes back to the tail end of Type O's final tour. He took a couple dates off while he attended Paramedic classes, something that would cause a bit of tension within the group.

Josh always seemed the most nihilistic of the group. Good to see he's focusing his life into a field that is all about helping others. Just visited a friend who was an EMT and is working toward Paramedic. It's demanding work
