Guess this kills the Intervention option stone dead - shame.

Do these have to be bought through VMP only, or do they make it out into record shops?

Has to be bought by VMP and it is part of a subscription.
If Sonic's new record sold out on VMP this will certainly sell out.
I kills the Intervention Records idea. I would love to see the first two done by them. Mastered at 33rpm too.

I signed up. I must have this version. If you wait until August to sign up, seems like you'll be guaranteed a copy of L&G. However, I have one VMP LP that was gifted to me (Archie Shepp's Attica Blues) and it's great. I get the impression that the VMP pressings are quality and I like all of the detail they offer on their website about each release. You can also swap out your monthly selection for anything else available in their catalog. So, when I signed up, I swapped the John Mayer LP (good god) for the John Cale mix of the Stooges' first album.

I do hope this isn’t Songs For The Deaf all over again, where I signed up to get that and had to stay a member for three months and the lp got a general release as well. But I do need this reissue. Fingers crossed that Barry Grint does a good job.

Signed up for a 3-month "plan." Started with the John Cale Stooges mix and swapped John Mayer for Stevie Nicks ( :oops: don't tell anyone).

Cut from the original masters. Might be the best version of this on vinyl?

Luckily I have an old record shop customer who is gifting me his VMP copy of LAGWAFIS. He also ordered me a copy of Sonic's new VMP LP. I have something rather nice to give him for all his efforts besides the money I owe him.

I put my Plain pressing on this morning and I have to admit it sounds pretty good. There is a little more surface noise than I would like, which is noticeable on the quieter tracks, but overall I don't think it's a bad pressing. Still, there's no way I'm missing out on the VMP version. I have heard that it will have the Elvis version of the title track.

The Plain pressing is not that bad, especially compared to other Plain pressings, but it’s just the cd on vinyl. And cause the cd is mastered very well IMHO, the Plain lp sounds fine. But I am hoping for a step up with this new mastering. Fingers crossed.
And @toomilk, I also swapped the john mayer for the stevie record. No shame in that at all ;)
