    They should limit it to 1 copy each when limited items. I wish I'd ordered 2, so could have at least helped another fan out. I just panicked when I saw it on the store and quickly added it to basket lol.

    Surely if they can do 7” vinyls, they can do CD Singles...even if they are just in cardboard sleeves housed in a box
    Amen to that! Give us more physical Single releases back again!

    If we're talking about limited formats then maybe she should get on the minidisc trend too. And also the music boxes that okay full albums along with the live recordings.

It’s likely that the record plant said "we can do Smaller Amount by late April or Larger Amount by late May" and BMG went for the smaller amount, sooner.

    The only way more copies will go up on the store is if BMG have deliberately held back stock to increase demand, or if a few people’s cards reject the payment during the week they ship and their orders are cancelled.

    We’ll be able to tell however many were pressed by looking at sales numbers in the vinyl release week, for example if there are 681 UK sales it would be fair to presume the vinyl was limited to 1000 when you account for international orders that don’t chart in the UK. I reckon we won’t be looking at more than 2000 in total, but we won’t really know until we can estimate based on sales figures.
    What confuses me is te following, there is a HUGE demand for vinyls everywhere, it's a format that was resurrected for about 10 years and it will not die, demand keeps increasing and every artist is interested in releasing vinyls, as well as collectors in buying them, so WHY is it that there are only very few pressing plants?

    I am sort of going to answer my own question lol, with this article that i found but goes back to 2014.

    https://pitchfork.com/thepitch/363-w...essing-plants/

    apparently:

    “The start-up costs would be astronomical,” he says. “Getting a hold of presses is pretty much impossible; there’s no one making new presses so, if you want to start up a plant, getting a hold of presses would be very difficult. There’s nowhere to get them. And you need people with very precise technical skills, and finding those people who can run those presses is very difficult.

    “So, really between big set-up costs, the lack of available presses, and then the lack of people with the proper expertise makes starting another plant very difficult.”

    But still that was an issue happening in 2014, the demand will not slow down, it seems quite strange to me that there aren't more vinyl pressing plants opening.

    If anybody has a spare copy they would be willing to sell please contact me.
    When they sell out in a couple of hours in the middle of the night it’s basically impossible to get one unless you pay 10X the price for it. BGM should know the demand for these items is significant. It’s very disappointing to continually miss out.
