Limited print runs can really suck for broke fans of someone with a motivated fanbase.
Yeah, totally. And then there's the one where you discover an artist whose stuff you love, then it turns out that there's all these limited editions you've missed because you didn't know about their blog/bandcamp page/whatever, and they're up there on Discogs for silly money, and you've missed the boat purely because you didn't know about them! Yes, they'll be on the internet somewhere, no it's not the same listening to stuff on a laptop compared to on your hi-fi. Ah well. Though occasionally I've got lucky as well - got Instrumental Mixtape by Clams Casino on blue vinyl when it first came out coz I loved the music on it, now too scared to give it a spin in case I scratch it! It's an eye-wateringly superb cut/press/master, too - really shows how good coloured vinyl presses can be.
I don't normally get box sets containing stuff I've already got, but JM is an exception. And I was in time to get the set with a signed score, which is very cool. But I'm not likely to be doing anything like this again for any other artist.
