Usually sisters get more pumped for that kind of thing.   They will warm to it.

so shop.udiscovermusic.com is the American ecommerce store and store.udiscovermusic.com is the UK instance?  and an account on one does not work on the other? 

Wow.   That would suck.   I've only had two deliveries from the UK and both went without issue.

Of course I'll let everyone know how this turns out.

I'm kind of psyched to be able to tell Universal US to "pound salt".

That seems to be the case.   I had to register for the British site.

Will check it out.m .

I had a bit of a revelation while surfing last night. I knew about shop.udiscovermusic.com and have never been a customer because I don't trust Universal's US pressings (unless I know for sure that they came from a quality plant). I've been burned too many times.

What I didn't realize until last night is that store.udiscovermusic.com (store as opposed to shop) takes you to their UK site. Even though shipping is a bit pricey "across the pond", their sales are extremely reasonable and they are selling the much higher quality (in my experience anyway) European pressings. I've had a few things from GZ Media and have found them all to be exceptional.

So, back to last night. I saw Counting Crows Recovering the Satellites as part of their 2 for $20 sale. There wasn't a second one that I was interested in so I looked at Counting Crows albums that weren't part of the sale. They had two different August pressings. The 2017 (the match to the sale Recovering pressing) was $20 and the orange vinyl was $35 (IIRC). Anyway, I checked the bar codes and the 2017 Euro pressings are 2x45 releases and said to be wonderful. So I ordered both. Even with high shipping fees the total for both was almost exactly $50, which I still consider a bargain for probably the best non-AP pressings of the two albums.

We need to keep things in perspective.  It's a hobby, not a living, at least for most of us.

The fact that we seem to be down to about three posts a week helps keep things from becoming too disorderly.

Well, trying to be less dyslexic, I will just say it's a good thing we are all patient on this board.
