Super Deluxe version
« on: September 14, 2015, 09:24:01 AM »
Did anyone else buy this or was it just me?! Still, the print is cool, number 1 of 300 - now probably rendered worthless as I had to open the thing to get the download code...And why the HD DVD audio? Like anyone can actually play these things in 2015! Love the album though - I think this is probably my second favourite thing he has done after Silverman.

They are all numbered 1. That is freaking weird. I wonder if some employee didn't change the stamp or they just said f*ck it, make 'em all #1! Ben did say the cost of the print was is more than the whole package.

I still have a DVD player attached to my TV (is that not a thing anymore?) .... so that was no problem.

Well, technically it's not #1. It's just 1 of 300. There are 300 total, we each have one of those. It makes sense, but it's definitely a misleading.
I do wish the download was flac (or that the dvd had exportable files), but I've, ahem, found a way to make it work out.

I didn't get this version, I got the one of 2000 version and already framed my signed copy of Ben vs Piano in the boxing ring.

Do people seriously not own DVD players anymore? I thought the DVD was still a fairly relevant format for home use.

A little disappointed that the Vinyl-mp3 download didn't include the instrumental tracks.  Kinda bummed me out.

Agreed. I'm kinda surprised the DVD doesn't contain the instrumental tracks. That's pretty lame.

I had assumed they would be on there too. Guess they're a vinyl only thing.... which is ok. I listened to them, and it's literally just the regular songs without vocals. I assumed they'd have replaced Ben vocals with some instrumentation taking care of his vocal melodies...they're part of the song!!!

Right now in the process of ripping the vinyl instrumentals into mp3s. This is my first time doing this so I'm hoping this turns out well. I can email them out to whoever wants them or upload it to Google drive later.

Here are the tracks in mp3: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B2iicW2CogM3ZF9kbk5qUkhnY0E&usp=sharing
I only had access to a low quality player so I recorded them with an av adapter and audacity so the quality is lackluster.  Sorry! This is the first time I've ever attempted anything like this.  If I can find a better way to do this with some help I'll try.
