HERE AGAIN, NO TURNTABLE KIT INCLUDED!
on 24 November 2012
I feel I should confirm what a fellow reviewer wrote concerning the vinyl version of "12 BIT BLUES":
although I placed an order within a week or so of the album`s initial release, my copy also did NOT contain the
HAND-POWERED TURNTABLE KIT & FLEXI DISC, as specifically advertised by amazon (with photo!) at the time I placed the order!
interestingly, the photographic reference to any vinyl "extras" has since been removed from the item description, although it still
states so in the item description. basically though, this vinyl version is a "no-no". all it is, is a vinyl sleeve "done on the cheap",
containing the 2 lps - and the cd booklet, as used for the cd version! the (otherwise quite artsy) booklet was not even reformatted
to fit the lp.
considering that the ninja tune vinyl is double the price of the "deluxe cd version" that DOES contain both the record player kit AND
the flexi-disc, this is a bit of a bring-down - especially for a label such as ninja tune which purports to cater to vinyl enthusiasts AND
art lovers alike!
after all, like kid koala himself, we all truly love vinyl, now don`t we?
