I got mine last night and will concur that the quality on this is astounding. I was a little worried by some of the comments made on Instagram by Billy and his team about "trying to clean these up as much as possible", and "these are live recording so not perfect"...but damn, if he released more of these old shows and they all sound this good, it will be the smartest thing he's done in forever.

Still fucking sucks that there's no download cards though. ��

Open up the archives, upload these show on to a service like Nugs.net and sell individual downloads if people wish to own. Offer mp3 and FLAC versions and call it a day. This doesn't have to be so hard, Billy.

Radiohead, Boris, Bjork & co make it look so easy to put awesome archival releases & whatnot on a service like bandcamp for the fans to buy if they choose (and believe it or not, they often choose to)

this is because - get this - it is fucking easy!

but wahtev, in the words of the Disco Man himself, we've all moved on, why haven't you???

My copy arrived today. Honestly, yeah, the packaging could’ve been a bit more expansive for the price but as the pressings are (apparently) not enormous runs, I’ll overlook it. Packing and the sleeve itself showed up in great condition. Sound quality is fucking incredible. That said, somebody rip it so I can listen to this on the go.

The model King Crimson have adopted is the best one and one he should look at. All the archives available online, track-by-track downloads, all properly categorised. And mostly studio-level quality.

I spent many happy hours trawling through the "ProjeKcts" and have myself a very nice collection of music, almost like my own preferred bonus King Crimson album. Unreleased studio material.

Let's keep in mind B0lly and the boys (and the girl) uploaded and let fans upload a shitload of shows for free on Archive.org. And some of them are really high quality. Mp3, FLAC, you name it.

The gold variants are the only ones that have shipped this wave I believe.

That was before there was an opportunity to bundle your music purchase with loose tea.

this is very true; one big thing that keeps me coming back to SP, as well as making getting into SP so rewarding is the countless bootleg shows

medium key spoiled me for other bands, how it's challenging if not impossible to get shows for anyone else

So, overall, zero updates, your money is gone

I'd hold off on any further investments until Billy rolls out the Madame Zuzu's NFTea (you own the idea of one of their tea blends, which Zuzu's continues to sell, by name, without your permission or any profit or benefit to you whatsoever)

In order to join the holy Unhappy Macheens you have to actually "like" this one.

Can you dig it, SilverBoy?!

This is literally the stuff mentally ill people make. How on earth can his ego take those vocals. He has to be doing that shit deliberately to troll people.

Does anyone think Chloe actually likes that Maison Atia song, or is she too embarrassed to tell Billy how cringe it is?
