Such is the tale of buying the Stalag 13 LP. I think I first downloaded the songs on this album around 2004, and while I've wanted a physical copy of it since then, I obviously haven't put forth much effort in my search. While flipping through the stacks of vinyl at Generation Records in NYC, I saw a copy. There it was in my hands. No searching for an online seller, or checking around for the best price. It was an easy shortcut to finally owning the vinyl, and I took it. Repress be damned.
Originally released in 1984, this copy is the newer 2010 repressing. While this pressing also saw red and gold vinyl, my copy is on black vinyl. Yawn.
