Howdy.

After spinning my new Praxis vinyl again this morning, I realized how much more of Bucket's discography deserves the vinyl treatment. The TDRS label released a bunch of fan-favorite wedges, (Chicken Noodles, Dragons of Eden, Thanatopsis) so has this been discussed at all? I guarantee I could fill this thread up with bots who would pay to own anything that got pressed. Is this something that's even feasible for TDRS at this time?

Thanks, guys/Travis, etc.

Yep. It has been discussed in the past. (do a search to follow that thread)
With replies of who would buy a vinyl. If memory serves, I think the cost effect and minimum cut for a vinyl release
wasn't practical. But hey, things could change if interest is stirred up again. I would purchase a vinyl release also.

been quite a while since i checked in...I would think that those are very major factors since vinyl is still very niche (though these days CDs are more and more too!). We (MOD Technologies) have been selective about vinyl. It's really dependent partially on the release itself - both vibe and reception. Praxis made sense. Done right with a good gauge on possible sales helps to at least determine break even. Also depends on how far you'll go also...we decided on a higher quality pressing (45RPM on two slabs instead of one 33 1/3) and full-on art-work. Not always a practical choice though.
