They could put it out on CD and take pre-orders on a small vinyl run.

It doesn't matter when they release it, they're not going to sell gangbusters of Machina on vinyl.

PUT OUT THE FUCKING CD SET MR. CEO.



OR MAYBE YOU'D RATHER PUT OUT ANOTHER TAYLOR SWIFT CD?

(Actually, a new T. Swift album would be sweet. And drop Ye?) Thanks, sir.

I buy records but I still wouldn't buy a Machina vinyl boxset. Why? Because I'd probably never play the whole thing, if there were a load of alternate versions then I definitely wouldn't play it that often.

What would sway me would extensive artwork / booklets etc. But they could make these, vinyl size, with CDs it in and not vinyl.

I can buy it and play Machina and Machina II only. How about that?

previous reissues only had the standard album, not the bonus tracks. but it might get weird with this one with M2 being added back

it'll be a 88 track album with all 88 tracks sequenced into a sixtuple album bullshit. somehow BSBT is part of the sequence 10 times in different variations of his dream state.

we're at a point in this reissue saga where even the above satirical description of this theoretical reissue is appealing to me

"My concept for Machina was actually always meant to stay a concept only," Corgan stated, explaining the release of a $299 set of two empty record sleeves with his stupid crude drawing on the front. "I am also announcing today that, in collaboration with the FBI, I will be taking legal action against anyone found in possession of the songs formerly comprising Machina, Machina II, or that reimagined project thing that soniclovenoize made. Total waste of my time."

I don't buy CDs at all. But I'm saying it would be a way of still providing a physical product with whatever new artwork it is and whatever the shitty comic is or whatever.

Miss taylor is a big fish, whereas barcy has been in musical nomansland for the last 20 years . So why would a record company push sthg that has only value for hardcore fans and was actually a mediocre album.

I' d release it via bandcamp...

I don't really want it on vinyl. The main frankenalbum is going to be 8+ sides? It'd be so annoying to listen to.

The whole thing's digital anyway so it's not like the vinyl will sound better. And it's going to be a cheap shitty pressing like Cyr. And it'll be $400 with 2 sided dedicated to alt versions of Blue Skies Bring Tears.

If i had as much money as greedy B'organ i would hurrah my last remaining fans with free content( chicago songs, outtakes, alt versions, bootlegs etc..).

But instead wanting to make money with every little shit that has to do with sp.

Are there any statistics about how many copies shiny and cyr sold???

They sold really well but mostly to weirdos that bought all 10+ vinyl variants to add to their SP/BC merchandise shrine rooms
