It still really bothers me that SYR7 is not on CD
 
just saying. I have 1-6, 8, 9 on CD. Heck, I have everything SY on CD that I've been able to get my hands on all these years. I bought SYR7 on vinyl to have it but really wish I could buy a CD. That is all.

...only 8 was CD only, as it's one hour-long jam. What a bunch of asshats. They'll probably put 10 out on wax cylinder or shellac 78.

Or they will never put 10 one out

I think I'd be content w/ a promo cd in a plain white sleeve just to have the full SYR run on CD. I don't believe such a thing exists.

My other great white whale in SY collecting is the Kali Yug + More promo CD. A friend of mine worked at a college radio station a decade ago and they had it there. I almost wish I was the sort of person who had asked him to steal it haha.

I similarly lament missing vinyl editions of SYR 6 & 8, Silver Sessions, Drunken Butterfly & Self-Obsessed and Sexee.

I got an idea... burn SYR7 onto a cd-r. problem solved.







j/k :0

6 on double vinyl, one part per side for three sides and an etching on the D would do me nicely

Good luck with that Kali Yug express release.

For the record, it always bothered me too that all the SYR releases weren't available in each format - especially LP format - I was in favor of LP releases of all the series - they look so great - but for one reason or another we couldn't do it, due to the length of the music or the expense of dble LPs or whatever, but, yes, it's too bad...

thanks for responding, Lee!

I guess I understand the length issues of the vinyl releases, but that's sort of why it was always weird to me that just one of them wasn't on CD while it would have had no problem fitting on CD for length or whatever.

They will probably not put 10 out, since they kinda no longer exist.

Yeah but the whole point of art if to broaden your horizons and get you out of conformity.

which format I choose to listen to my music on - especially based on convenience of where I listen to my music is hardly a matter of conformity. I mean shit, the fact that I still buy CD's should tell you that.

The fact remains I don't have a turntable in my car, but that's where I do most of my listening. And I choose to collect CD's as that's the format that I first start collecting in the 90's. I don't feel like I need art to somehow change that for me.
