    A place to discuss the weekly Throwback Thursday releases of former RotM and Exclusives (and other former Store favourites).

    VMP dug into the back recesses of the VMP Warehouse and found some extras; they release them on Thursdays.
    The first title gets put online starting at 9AM PST/Noon EST until it sells out.
    The next album is posted 15 minutes later.
    Links are posted through the VMP Twitter.
    It's madness and members suffer crazy bouts of FOMO.

    Other than Madvillainy (which sold out too fast), I had everything else I wanted (Quilt, FJM, Destroyer...)

    I looked up all the release dates and quantities on these to see if there's any trend. I mean yeah anything can happen, but it's lookin pretty slanted towards 2016 and Madvillainy may have been a fluke

    Madvillainy - ROTM - Sept 2014
    Cherry Tree - 1000 - Feb 2016
    Plaza - 500 - Feb 2016
    Pure Comedy - 750 - Mar 2017
    Kaputt - 750 - July 2016
    Kadhja Bonet - 300 - Oct 2016
    Big Smoke - 600 - Oct 2016

    I'm a big ole' goose egg for TBT. My problem is that I'm not at my desk from 12-1 so I have to do it clumsily on my phone.

    Endless sitting and waiting in front of the computer and then letting others snap what you wanted. Sounds like a virtual record store day.

    Is this happening tomorrow @thestorfer ? If so, will it be every Thursday going forward, or just until old inventory is cleared out?

    It's for exclusives we found out we have inventory for. I know for sure it's tomorrow and (probably) next week. Not sure about after that.

    Also, could anything be old RoTM that are sold out. Or will they all come from store exclusives?

    Perhaps it's just the optimist in me, but these Throwbacks Thursdays are kinda fun?
