      I have ordered the 8 colored vinyls reissues from MUSICVAULTZ as recommended by this site, didn't get any confirmation yet from them, did anyone order them from there or anywhere else and received them ?, would like any feedback on them or MUSICVAULTZ, are they reliable ? Thanks.

        I was looking to buy the set but the $240 for 8 albums is not better than the absurd $30/album price. Are they being discounted anywhere as a set? It'd be nice to have colored and black vinyl. Not happy with the way this was released really.

          I have not seen them a set, but I was at Amoeba in Hollywood yesterday and they have both the Color and Black vinyl of the Capitol reissues. While the (limited) Color vinyl LP's are indeed $30.00, the Black vinyl is $10.00 cheaper, selling for $20.00. A better price all around, especially for the budget-minded.

            Amazon has the black vinyl versions for $17.  I would have expected a set price for all 8 albums in either black or colored vinyl. Saw a lot of grumbling on-line about the $30 price tag for colored vinyl. A set price of $180 seemed reasonable. Maybe after no one buys them we'll finally see some sort of set price for the lot. I did order the colored vinyl Christmas records. That looks like an interesting set.

              Does anyone else have this issue?

              I bought all 8 coloured vinyls. All look as expected except for Ram which is green!

              Also disappointing is that none of the records have poly lined sleeves, which is prretty bad considering how much they cost.

              Does anyone else have this issue?

              Pretty bad quality control for such a premium product.

                Ram is supposed to be a neon yellow disk I believe. Maybe you got a rarity. IDK anyone else who has the set. I’d love to get it but $240 is just a bit too steep for this and it doesn’t even come as a boxed set. Does anyone else here have the colored vinyl?

                  I'm interested in the colored vinyl, may wait to see if they come down in price.  The colored vinyl is a cool idea 

                    Check out this “unboxing” video of the colored vinyl reissues. There is a lyric sheet with “RAM,” but he doesn’t show it. https://youtu.be/1mHWJX1GX1k

                      Interesting and slightly strange that the face montages on the back of Speed of Sound are slightly different from the original.

                          That looks like one of the plate series. I have it and 8 other album covers/photos.

                            Actually it is a vinyl album, with that picture on it.  Not sure if it's a new release or what it is.
