  • Hiylchis
So funny watching people try and flip this... still available from the official store folks
  • Nuadabandis
How much! come on..... https://boniver.org/store/us/14266/preorder-limited-edition-for-emma-forever-ago-lp-us $25 (bit more in the UK/EU).
  • Geny
The 10th Anniversary show was the first night they sold this. I was told it is a release of 10K, so hardly limited.
  • Perius
This was for sales at the London shows last night. So hardly that limited. There was also an Orange 22 Million LP - that is not on discogs.
  • Pedora
Does it say who mastered this release? Can someone confirm that the barcode is on a sticker and not printed on the cover?
  • Moralsa
The barcode is on a sticker on the plastic wrap, I confirm.
Mastered by Nick Peterson at Track and Field in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
  • Buge
I have the 10 yr anniversary CD version, can't see that on Discogs. Barcode is definitely a sticker on the back, nothing on the CD itself. Don't know about Vinyl.
  • Rrd
Can anyone report if this sounds better/worse than the original vinyl release? Appreciate it!
  • Oghmaghma
mine the same sounds amazing, except restocks - slight distortion. compared to the original it is BEAUTIFUL
  • Tall
I'd like to know if it has the brushing / whooshing sounds that the other pressings have. Anybody with a good ear and system...?
  • Iseared
It sounds GREAT. A few pops and clicks, but I have NOT cleaned or vacuumed it yet, either. Very little surface. A delight from front to back.
  • ME
yes, I'd love to know if it sounds better as well.
  • Ffan
My copy sounds BEAUTIFUL, except that "re:stacks" has just a little surface noise. I haven't heard any other pressings, but I'd say this one's a winner
  • Coiril
I also wish to know if it sounds better (word)
  • Wafi
I haven't opened mine yet, I'll let you know soon
  • Renthadral
Who says this one is limited to 500 copies? I’ve never heard of that. And still sold on their website.
  • Lanionge
Might be a bit of a stretch to say that the pressing was pressed for that show specifically.
  • Defolosk
I was at the show that this pressing was pressed for, in Milwaukee. The venue holds about 20,000 people and it seemed like every other person that night had a copy of this on LP, so this "500" number is just laughable. It's limited, sure, but there are a TON out there.
  • Perongafa
It appears that it's sold out on the website now.
  • Danial
Agreed that the press quantity is unknown. Here is what the email from Bon Iver said about it when on prerelease, "we are thrilled to announce a limited edition reissue of For Emma . . . on LP & CD. The reissue includes new artwork and a reflective in-depth essay written by Trever Hagen. The reissue will be available worldwide on February 16, 2018 exclusively through boniver.org and at the FOR EMMA, TEN YEAR merch table."
  • Thabel
Yeah, there was no announced limitation.Please enter at least 4 more
