I can't believe how much mileage they've gotten from the one Palladium show!

Like I've said many times before I just wish they'd release the DVD of that show.

Somewhat of a side question: why is all this anniversary stuff being called "sterling spoon"? What is the significance of a sterling spoon as it pertains to JA's legacy?

I guess it's because silver is a 25th anniversary. Where the spoon comes into it I don't know. But maybe people are familiar with silver spoons. Silver chandelier might be a bit chincy. Silver bullet would've worked though. They could have had Etty dressed up as a werewolf on the cover.

25 year Anniversary is "silver", well in marriages anyway (10 years is Tin/Aluminum, 15 is Crystal, 20 is China, 30 is Pearl, 35 Coral, 40 Ruby, 45 Sapphire, 50 is gold and 60 years is diamond)

And the spoon....well.... heroin reference

$100 bucks for NS, Ritual, Kettle Whistle and Palladium on vinyl? hmmmmmmm

I wonder if there will be a book or anything interesting included.

It's a 5K limited run.

Very tempted.

passing for sure...Cabinet of Curiosities was my last gasp on them...boots on vinyl do nothing for me but add noise..plus it's prob the same file as the cd (like panda said)

the cabinet had more of a draw to me...i'll stick with it, my og wax and what silvers i still have

it's limited because that's how many of us are left world wide :lolol:

The santeria design is cool. Palm trees, surf boards, flames, hand-cuffs etc.

It just showed up with today's mail. I forgot I preordered it a while back with a 20% discount and $25 store credit at Acoustic Sounds for under $60 shipped. I won't have a chance to listen and compare with my original vinyl pressings of NS and RDLH until Monday.

Spent the morning listing and comparing the Sterling LPs with my originals.

For the box, all LPs are really flat, quiet, heavy 180gm pressings. Most were very clean, but NS was a bit dirty. All LPs in this set played flawlessly. All LPs come in white paper/plastic sleeves. The original inset sleeve for NS is the same as the original LP, but RDLH has a single sheet replicating the art/lryics sleeve the original LP had. For whatever reason, mine came with two identical lyric/art sheets. The live LP and Kettle Whistle LP have no additional inserts or sleeves. The Live Palladium LPs are in a gatefold.

NS and RDLH appear to be new 2016 vinyl masters done by Bernie Grundman. This is a good thing as the previous reissues from 2009-11ish have been generally panned for mediocre, tinny sound.

Nothing's Shocking: I actually prefer this new one to my original LP pressing. My original LP pressing is a bit harsh on the high end, this new one sounds a lot smoother without going dull or murky. A bit more bottom end as well.

Ritual De Lo Habitual: Comparing my original single LP release to this set, I still prefer the overall sound on the original to this release. The box set RDLH LPs are cut at a bit lower volume and just don't sound as "open" as the original does. It's not a big deal-breaking difference but it's noticeable doing a direct A/B comparison. The original has more "pop" in that it has a more live-in-the-studio sound on tracks like "Three Days" then the box set version. I wouldn't call the box set RDLH "murky" though, maybe just a fraction more tame, but it's certainly crankable.

Listening to the Kettle Whistle LP, I overall slightly prefer the old CD sound to the LP release. That said, the title track has better bottom end on the vinyl. The Live at the Hollywood Palladium LPs (w/fade ins/outs on each side) seem pretty close to the CD included in the "Curiosities" CD box.

Overall, I think this release came out a bit better'n the cheap cash grab I was expecting. There's nothing new for us diehards, but for vinyl-heads looking to get the JA classic Warner Bros stuff in one buy, this is a decent purchase, especially if you can get it well below the $100 retail.

I was wrong about Bernie Grundman cutting new vinyl masters for this set. Apparently, Capitol Records' Ian Sefchick did it.

since i don't have a turntable or decent home stereo anymore i will pass. i guess i could get at and stare at it for a while and then add it to my other records i can't play that are by my vhs tapes i can't play and my cassettes i can't play.

if i ever stop moving i do want to invest in some decent home audio stuff.

Thanks Panda.

I think I'm going to buy this.

So they did some sort of remastering job on NS?
