Can I walk into my local CD store and buy them. Will they be available in stores?

I assume so. It's EMI, I'm sure they'll try to get as much cash as possible. The Sex Pistols were actually right about that.

Did anyone see these today? My local indie store said they were delayed to all their locations until Friday. Not sure if that delay applies to big retail outlets or not. I may stop by Best Buy tonight just to make sure.

I don't buy music, so I really have no idea.

And an indie hipster, it turns out.

I don't have the money for these, unfortunately.

Neither do I, but I may pick up one, and get the other 2 later.

Always keep in mind that they'll be on sale this week, and a good $5 to $10 more later.

In any other week, it would be OK, but I have spent $1100 in the last two weeks for two major ventures, so cash is tight.

Big Grin

Now the scumbo has graciously told me what is on the reissue, I will have to purchase.

Unfortunately, this will be the THIRD copy of each of these albums for me (my loverly wife bought me the handy box set last christmas).

I was going to make a very similar joke.

I went to a couple different places, most either didn't have them, or only had the versions without the DVD. I found one store that had only OK Computer on the 2 disc + a DVD version. I asked them about the other two, and they said they have them ordered, but they were delayed a few days, so it looks like the "delay until Friday" thing may actually be legit. I assume/hope we'll see them everywhere at least by the end of the week.

CD quality versions of 'Lull" and the BBC Radio One Evening Session version of 'Climbing Up the Walls' have already more than paid for the OK Computer reissue.

I saw OK Computer and Pablo Honey at my local store just now, at lunch. The Bends wasn't there.

None were on sale, which was disappointing. I'm not spending $26 for the OK Computer reissue; I don't care how it sounds and what's on there, it's just not worth it. Should've been on sale for $20 or less.

Hopefully they will have good sale prices in the next month or so. I remember when R.E.M.'s Murmur re-release came out, it wasn't on sale the first week, either, yet a month later, they had it for $19.99, which was $8 off. Hopefully the same scenario happens here.

Are the albums themselves remastered, or not?
