Nice find! :shock:

I imagine it will be for sale elsewhere, but maybe just not yet. It’s still sorta early.

I find it sad that we have to hear about this release from Amazon/Insound before the band can release any info on it officially on their own website. As I recall, weren’t these supposed to go on sale via the website first anyway? And weren’t these EPs supposed to be super limited?

I’ll still buy it, but I just wish the SP camp would get their shit together. Remember this is what Billy C said himself:

\"We will however sell highly limited edition EPs (of 4 songs each times 11), and details of how those EPs will be made available are still being worked out. Because the songs themselves will be free, the EPs will be more like collectors items for the discerning fan who will want the art itself, along with the highest possible audio quality available.\"

So $30 for basically 2 new songs on vinyl and a hand-carved \"leopard stone\" obelisk? And it isn’t even numbered!! Ugh. I wish I could be a part of planning a limited edition release. Lord knows I bought so many of the past 20+ years, I know what adds value and what doesn’t.

Yeah, it’s not really clear how limited this is. Maybe they’re waiting to see how many pre-orders there are before they decide on a number.
I don’t care though. Limited just means they’ll only make a certain amount and then that’s it. Highly limited? Well, it’s all relative. I personally wasn’t expecting a release of only 500 numbered copies.

And I think the price is fair. You’re not just paying for two songs on vinyl. I think that’s a wrong way of thinking. You’re also getting the four free songs, but now on cd. That’s also worth something. And apparently, the cd also contains instrumentals. And it comes in a nice box. (I assume nobody cares about that obelisk, so let’s not add it to the calculation.)

I’m not pre-ordering yet though. I have my doubts about the April 20th release date.

From a sales scan posted on Netphoria, it appears that only 10,000 will be made. Also, on the flyer/sales sheet. 99 boxes will have a "different" obelisk, so go figure. Of all the things to change. How about 99 boxes have the vinyl on red vinyl? Or 99 boxes have a poster/lithograph type art print.

It’s funny how many places call this release \"Teagarden\"… :wink:

But anyway, here’s my 2 cents. If you see all that \"limited edition\" releases out there, then this Smashing Pumpkins one is a little outstanding in a good way, just my humble opinion. I mean, which band can say they do 44 songs on 11 releases? Who does 4/6 of the songs for free in a pre-release? Who adds a funny little item like a \"hand-carved \"leopard stone\" obelisk, about 2\" tall, similar to marble\" to a music release?*

So yeah, I’m good with it for the moment. I’m only curious if there will many Made in <<whatevercountry>> releases, but I guess not. And if 99 out of 10,000 will have a different obelisk, well, I don’t care that much. Let the obelisk lovers be happy with that, I’m happy with the music. :wink:

*OK, let’s be honest, I recall such thing happened before. It’s not really that new that a not-really-music-related item is added to a music release. For example, my favourite band in the 1970’s (KISS) added a cardboard gun to their 1977 Love Gun album.

I fully agree, but why did you order there? It’s very expensive, compared to other online places! :shock:

I converted your hard work finding these sources for online pre-ordering into a little article on the homepage of http://www.SPfreaks.com . Thanks guys! You rock, as always! 8)

The US flyer for this thingy gives some more info on how the obelisk looks, that there are 99 \"sparkly\" obelisks and that a world tour is to be expected this year. I’m still doubtful about how many of these boxes are produced and where… Both Amazon UK and Amazon Germany call it an \"Import\"… :roll:

Ditto… :wink:

My guess is, they will appear sooner or later. We see that flyer above already (picked it up from Netphoria), and I presume it goes with some more promo goodies including a promo cd. So far my sources cannot tell me anything…
