Pre-ordered the LP at fingerprints in Long Beach,CA with no problems. Other than the 44.99 price tag....um what? Is this right? Is there any other particular perks for this album on vinyl?

Moshe, the *- while supplies last in the first announce by matador scares me...
Are we SURE the live lp won't be "sold out" before the 28th of april? I hope so, coz I have to order 2 copies...
And if there are no diffferences between the "usa" and "uk" begn things, then perhaps I'd be better off asking for help to uk pippol...

New Sonic Youth Album - Buy Early Get Now Offer!

POSTED BY Rod ON Thu Mar 26, 09:15 AM
http://easystreetonline.com/images/i....jpg&width=360

The new Sonic Youth album, The Eternal, is not officially released until June 9, but thanks to Matador Records' "Buy Early Get Now" promotion, you not only get to hear the record as early as April 28, but you also will get a bonus limited live vinyl Sonic Youth LP (while supplies last), a limited-edition poster, plus exclusive MP3 outtakes and live tracks with your purchase! Here's how it works:
Come in to one of our stores and ask for a Sonic Youth Buy Early Get Now card. You purchase the CD or LP in advance and fill out the card which will include your unique code to download your bonus tracks from the website specified on the card. You take half of the card (don't lose it!) and wait for the goodies to roll in. Here's what you will get:
April 28 - Exclusive pre-release stream of The Eternal becomes available. First bonus MP3 download will also be available at this time.
May 12 - Second bonus MP3 download available
June 2 - Third bonus MP3 download available
June 9 - Official release date - bring your half of the Buy Early Get Now card into the store to get your copy of The Eternal, bonus live LP, and poster!
The CD version of The Eternal is priced at $19.99, the vinyl LP is $33.99.

ok about the rest, STILL I'm afraid if I end up ordering 2 copies from some online store, the LPs and Posters will be sold out..given to those people going to the "real life" stores haha.

Yep.
I think i have just reserved the lp and also the 2 x 7" that come out on record store day. It sounds like these are going to be very limited in the uk.

the vinyl LP is $33.99.[/quote]

When i initially read about the "bonus" live LP, it seemed like it was a free bonus, but now with this price, it seems like a bonus that you pay for. or at least partly pay for. if supplies of this bonus LP run out, i'm paying $33.99 for a 2 LP set? to offset the cost of other people's bonus copies?

I have participated in the last Pavement BEGN and the Stephen Malkmus BEGN.

In the Pavement BEGN I think matador ended the offer at a set time and all customers who placed in order received an LP (meaning that there is no set number to begin with, but the edition of the bonus LP is determined by the amount of buyers before the cut off date).

I would imagine the SY BEGN will work the same way.

And for all the naysayers complaining about price, keep in mind that Matador presses their LP's on high quality 180 gram vinyl, and the sleeves are really nicely produced as well. They put out a quality product and their prices reflect that. Toss in the bonus LP (not 180 gram, but still a nice keepsake) and the poster, Mp3s, and stream, and you've got a pretty great deal.

IMHO

so I've emailed there and that's the answer I got:

"We've been selling independent music all over the world for 20+ years now. This is the first UK experiment with BEGN so I'm not even sure myself yet how it's going to work! Basically, it seems by placing the preorder you will qualify for all the extras. The price of vinyl and CD has been set by the record company. I'm expecting vouchers and more information to arrive closer to the actual release date. If you place an order, as I hope you will, no payment will actually be taken until everything's ready to send. Sorry to be a bit vague, this seems to be the most complex release I've yet come across!"

I'd like to know why the disc is $19.99! It'll be everywhere for around $10 or $12 when it's released. NO WAY am I paying $19.99 for it.

Unless you want the bonus live LP... $20 for an LP *AND* a CD seems pretty fair to me.

If I pay 33 dollars and they run out of bonus LPs before I get mine I'll be really upset.

I think they press LPs based on demand, i.e.:
number of LPs = number of people who signed up for BEGN
