So I saw this comment on discogs under the Text Pressing version of Mood Valiant:
"I was expecting something a little more than a generic (autographed) outer and a plain inner sleeve with some paint splatters. Happy to have my copy but it could have been more "special" IMO. Guess I'll be buying a regular copy as well..."
I thought I'd leave my rant here instead of posting it there but...I don't get this.
Did this person NOT know what a test pressing was? THEY ONLY MADE 500! On top of that, they autographed and painted (really just splatter) the album sleeve. So your version of Mood Valiant is essentially a 1 of 1. Nobody has a record like yours and your thought was...
"I'll be buying a regular copy as well."
You mean the exact same version everyone else has? Do you know what a collector's item is? Like that's why I paid the extra money. I wanted something unique because I felt this was going to be a special record.
