What do they look like compared to the originals? Any layout difference?

They suck. I saw them in a store but didnt buy them. The back of the LP jacket is the same as the back of the re-mastered CD case (not the original back cover from the original LP). Not to mention, as with most Roadrunner LPs, the pictures on the front and back are really fucking blurry and shitty looking, it looks like someone photocopied the CD cover and blew it up to LP size. Im going to assume the layout of the inside looks like shit too

Haven't seen them either yet, but I can't believe they didn't use the original backcovers!! How fucking stupid is that, especially when it comes to "Don't Break The Oath" which has one of thee best backcovers EVER!!

Assholes like this have realised there's once again a market for vinyl, getting people to pay money for an inferior product. Certain labels will go out of their way to make a decent product so thats its worth the purchase price, but labels like Roadrunner have all the money they need and sadly there will be some dedicated people who fall for this scam.

What's the point (other than money for the label)- the originals are so easy and cheap to find.

Easy and cheap to find? Where? Unless your idea of cheap is $30.

This is a major disappointment, especially when thinking that back in the early '90ies Roadrunner released some of the best looking lps I've ever seen.

Yeah- it's just a culture thing between England and the US- we're used to paying a lot for things so $30/ 15 is cheap and reasonable to us and we're used to paying those prices- like Mr. Nekrocunt said- that's the kind of price you'd pay for a cd in HMV.

Kind of like the fact that Yosuke does $5 cds which to an Englishman is utterly, utterly insane!!!!!!

Thats 2.50 over here! You get a pint for that much! Magazines on shelves are more expensive than that! Mind you if I were to order from Nuclear War Now!, the postage costs would make the price closer to the price in England.

Of course if you only order one CD. Postage to send one CD to the UK is $10 by priority mail.

I bought the original Melissa and Don't Break the Oath LP's for $10 each at a used record store down the street from my house. I guess I lucked out.

Roadrunner is HORRIBLE with reissues. I actually picked up one of those "Two From The Vault" series double discs for the KING DIAMOND albums Them and Conspiracy. The fucking booklet doesn't even come with lyrics. Who the FUCK in their right mind would press a KD album without lyrics? Instead they just have pages of pointless commentary about the band that any fan would not get much out of.

Got all the originals, but I'm sure as hell getting these re-releases. Cool
to see Abigail getting a double-vinyl treatment.
