I pre-ordered the Pop Art Live LP's several months ago. I just received an email from SoundStageDirect. Apparently, the record company just notified them that Pop Art Live is not available at this time. They wanted to know if I would like to exchange the title for another, or would I prefer a store credit or refund.

Not a good sign. Anybody know what is going on or if it will ever be released?

According to Omnivore's site, it'll be available "at your local record store" on black Friday. 

In my town the record store is conveniently located between Blockbuster and FotoMat.

Thanks Dave.

Not very fan friendly on the part of Omnivore, especially after originally offering it up for pre-order. I'm not inclined to actually try and find a record store, let alone find one that will have it. I don't need it that bad.

Donzi, I don't know how old you are, but when Eric's single of Brand New Year came out on Record Store Day a few years ago, I relished the chance to hunt it down.  Sure, it was a 20 minute drive to Ventura, but it reminded me of earlier times when Raspberries or Eric would have a new release coming out.  The search for a copy, the excitement of finding one, spinning it on the turntable for the first time; it was a flashback moment for sure!  Good to see it will be available online after Black Friday, but I'll probably do the same thing for "PAL" as I did for "BNY":)

My understanding is that these "Record Store Day" events (and special releases) are meant to support your local record shop, most of which have unfortunately closed for good. So, you should actually pop over and give them some love (and money) or soon they'll all be gone.

Ok Bernie. You successfully guilted me into buying this at my "local" record store. :) I made a list of record stores near me and started calling this morning.

Me - "Did you get any Raspberries Pop Art Live LPs for Record Day?"

Them - "No, there wasn't much available for any title this year."

Next!

Them - "No, sorry."

Next!

Them - "No."

Next!

Them - "No."

Next!

Them - "No."

Next!

Them - "Yes, we have 2 of them."

Next! Wait, what? Success!

After a 30 minute drive each way and paying much more than buying it online, I have it! :cool: That's right, I'm cool! I saved the record store with some love and money.:D

I did not have any luck locally, so I ended up buying online.  One record store gave false hope- ends up they had the 2 cd version, not the 3 lp's...

I don't know if you ordered the vinyl online but Omnivore has them today. I don't know how many they have but I'm guessing not many. The local store here ordered 20 but only received 10. They said it was limited availability.

When I pre-ordered the 2 cd set from Omnivore last time, I got it much later than other people who ordered from online retailers, so when I saw one on Ebay I snagged it- the day before record store day (this was after I had called around to local record stores).

Omnivore has a half off vinyl sale 11/28/17 - 12/01/17. The Raspberries Pop Art Live LP's is included in that sale. Ask me how I know! :) I'm going to keep this one sealed.

$27.49 + tax & shipping. No excuses. Go get it. :D

Hey Bernie,

Is that a participation trophy you gave me? I'm not a Millennial! :P

I already ordered mine at full price since this was supposed to be a limited release. My order has not yet shipped so I'm hoping they will honor the 1/2 price sale. The 2 bonus tracks are available as a digital download for $1.99 on Omnivore's site.

You will actually get a small piece of paper in the package that will give you a code to get a free digital download of the entire album. No need to pay for the 2 bonus tracks, if purchasing the LP's.

I noticed the bonus tracks are credited from the New Year's Eve show in Cleveland, yet I can't find "IDKWIW" on the Dec. 31st set list.  I wonder if it was played on Dec. 31 and just left off the set list, or was the track taken from another show later in the reunion?  Bernie??

I ordered mine last night.  At $54 I was going to pass.  Couldn't resist at $27.  Now I have to remember where I put our record player.

Have you received your copy yet? I ordered mine on 11-25 from Omnivore and it still hasn't shipped.

I know you're not asking me but I ordered mine on 11/29/17 and haven't received it either. I sent an email a couple of days ago and this was the response:

We have received your order, but we are waiting on stock to arrive. There was a delay in the manufacturing, and so orders are shipping out later than anticipated. As soon as we have stock here, orders will begin shipping out immediately. Sorry for the wait and inconvenience. Let me know if there is anything I can help with.

The email came from 11spot.com customer service. It appears that they are a 3rd party that is handling Omnivore's orders. Hopefully we will get the LP's soon.

Omnivore has scammed buyers many times with their false "Limited Releases", exorbitant pricing and the ability to crank out anything they can find by a band like the 'berries and Big Star to keep milking their fans. While I also bought this LP set from them I did not till the sale and still am very vocal about their dishonest and faulty buisiness practices.

At least after spending $100 on the Limited Edition Raspberries collection from their site and later seeing it for half that price, they did this several years after the initial release so while on one level I felt I'd been ripped off it was nowhere near as bad as what Omnivore has constantly, and consistently done.

I just got an email that my "package" has shipped from Greensboro, NC.  I'm not sure if it's my Vinyl Set (the order #'s didn't match), but I'll keep you posted.  Please Mr. Postman, have some Vinyl for me!!

If it's from redeyeusa.com that is the vinyl set. I received mine this morning.

Mine came in the mail today. The return address on the shipping label was some guy with an address in Hillsborough, NC. The packing slip was from 11Spot though. I also received an email a couple of days ago from endicia that an item was shipped. I assumed it must be the Raspberries vinyl but there was no indication of who sent it or what was being shipped. Sheesh! At least we are getting them now. It was packed properly and no seam splits.
