Smashing Pumpkins Machina II album

Maybe it's a crock of chit, but I'd like to hear it in something other than MP3.

The story seems to be that Virgin refused to release the second installment of the Machina album, so Billy Corgan had twenty-five LP's pressed and fedex'd them to active fan club members.

Nobody had access to anything very sophisticated gear-wise, so it seems to exist only in MP3 format, and badly recorded at that.

I figure just about any studio owner would have been curious enough to get involved. What would the time investment have been anyway?

So where are those LP's? I think it's a shame that this is the only form available.

nah vinyl rules
and I love the pumpkins
so why don't they go to a pressing plant and yank out 5000 of these?
Forget the majors, if you want to forget them.
I want to hear it too!
good tip btw...

shouldn't we go to a pumpkin board and convince them of the need to make proper duplicates?
I loved the depth of the pumpkins music, and bought every album on vinyl
