    Yeah honestly I don't think it's Muddy that's holding things up. I swapped for Queen, 2 copies, one is a gift. And according to my orders page one is coming now and the other is coming next month. I'm pretty sure that's probably the main hold up at this point.

    Spinning my copy of this right now. So far so good, but... does anybody else's copy smell really bad? The pockets that the records/inner sleeves sit inside of reek of rotten egg smell. There doesn't seem to be anything in there that I can see that would cause the smell (IE, rotten eggs), but it's definitely a noticeable scent. Not the most frustrating issue I've had with a VMP record but definitely the weirdest

    Hahahaha, well paper mills have a strong sulphur smell, maybe the sleeve or jacket is retaining some of that....

    Mine definitely has a bit of an odour as well. I’m sure it will dissipate eventually.

    My Muddy definitely has a smell to it but I'd describe it to mostly be sweet?

    I haven’t listened to these songs since high school probably. It’s still just as good. I was loving it on my first listen this morning.

    I received an email saying my shipment was running late due to a delay of the Muddy Waters record. As others have said it was probably minimal and I shouldn’t speculate as to why I didn’t receive 2 records in my shipment. I’m sure VMP will sort everything out.

    I received my Muddy on the 8th...seems odd that it would be delayed for some and not others. Also, IIRC a Muddy delay was not one of the reasons given by VMP in their official statement on the December shipping issues.

    Oh, I believe they told you that, it just seems strange to me that they're saying there was a delay with Muddy that only affected some people, but what do i know?

    In the past they've had some releases where they only received part of the shipment in time. I imagine it was something like that where a box of Muddy was slower to arrive.

    That would explain it, but if that were the case I'm surprised they didn't disclose it in their post detailing all the other December shipping issues.

    You know, when vinyl was $5/lp I wasn't as concerned about perfect sound (and packaging). At $25+, I am.

    Mine smells like perfume. It's sweet and quite pleasant. More of this please.

    I wouldn’t call it a problem...except that you need Folk Singer.
