That's certainly what I'm assuming. It would be a very poor business decision otherwise because, again, they guaranteed said items on the page.

It would also be pretty stupid to run out of pre-order bonuses when the stuff is being pressed like a week or two out. So if they had 2,000 pre-orders two weeks ago, then they would know to press enough green vinyl/7" to satisfy, say, 3,000 pre-orders for their website (and of course, there's even more than that made since the stores will have the green vinyl as well).

I got the FJM and Shearwater LEs after their respective release date, and with no info on the edition size or if it's sold out, I'd have to assume everything is still available. The LEs I've seen sell out (Beach House and Postal Service) definitely were changed on the website to reflect they were gone.

I've also never seen a LE in store, which is unfortunate for this Dum Dum Girls fanatic.

That seemed to be the basic premise of the Pitchfork review: good album from a dead genre. Anyway, definitely in my top 5 for the year, and it's been a very good year.

When I saw Shearwater live, I was going to buy the album from their merch table, but they wanted like $25 for it, so I got on Reckless' website to see how much they wanted. Not only was it way cheaper, but it was the LE as well. So I've never seen one IN the store, but I know that it was in a store at one point.


I don't own any green vinyls

My only other green vinyl is an old copy of Bowie narrating Peter and the Wolf.

Very good year indeed. This year's top 15 is going to be impossible for me, and I still have U2, Pearl Jam and Arcade Fire to look forward to.

Alright, there must have been fuck all for preorders cause there are only 250 of these 45s and I got one despite ordering way late in the game. Sub Pop also threw in about 30 stickers so thanks guys?

Anyway, sounds great and I love the green. Looking forward to digging right into this bad boy.

What shade of green is it? This could be the deciding factor here.

It's pretty close to the same shade as the Bowie record, actually.

I've kinda been out of it on getting new music for a couple months. Buying a house and going on vacation have been major factors. But I just ordered this. Should be here by Friday! Waiting til then to hear it.
