    We have been working on this for a good long while, and now we are finally ready to roll out a Beta test of our first genre specific monthly subscription: VMP Classics!


    VMP Classics will include reissues of soul, jazz, and blues albums from classic labels you’ve surely heard of. They will all be remastered on 180g black vinyl with original artwork. They will also come with long-form “Listening Notes” booklets written specifically for our reissues.


    So, how does this work?


    This will be a Subscription add-on that you can add to your account only with an active membership. If you don't have an active subscription, you won't be able to sign up for VMP Classics.


    To put it simply, VMP Classics will be an add-on subscription that will grant you an additional record, every month, of a classic album that we specially curate! As I mentioned, this is just the first "genre specific" sub that we will be adding.


    It will be an added monthly charge of $23 (USD), and you will receive the selected VMP Classics title with your normal monthly shipment. The first one will ship with your June ROTM. This is available to both domestic and international members.


    This is a totally separate thing from the normal subscription; Don't be fooled!


    You can sign up RIGHT NOW, by going to your member profile, and selecting and adding VMP Classics to your account.


    app.vinylmeplease.com/profile/classics


    As I said before, this is still in Beta, so to start, it’s only open to current, active members. Spots are extremely limited to begin--the pressing of our first album, Archie Shepp’s Attica Blues, will be limited to 1000 copies. If you cancel your regular sub, your classics sub will also be cancelled at this time.


    However, if you don’t get in on this first wave, don’t worry: we will be opening spots via a wait list, much like the Gorillaz waitlist from April. If you’ve made it before the waitlist starts, it will be added to your account. Otherwise, you’ll be added to the waitlist. You won’t be charged right away. If you miss the first wave, you can still add yourself to the waitlist, and as people opt out, or as we open more spots, we will add folks from that list! At that point we’ll email you to ask if you still want into VMP Classics, and then you’ll be charged.


    Of course, you can opt out whenever, but just so you know, if you opt out, your spot will be gone, and if you want to come back, you will have to go to the back of the line on the waitlist.


    As always, if you have any questions, either let us know in this thread, or email into info@vinylmeplease.com, and we can clear things up!
