  1. Matthew Best says:

    Hmmm. Nothing really here for fans like me who already have all these albums, except the fact that they’re on vinyl. Don’t think I will be bothering, especially not for over £100.

    • Scotty says:

      Hey, Matthew, many audiophiles love vinyl. I detest listening to compressed music. So considering that vinyl of some of these records (for example: “Electric Shock Blues” which goes for $800 on ebay and discogs) is now affordable to fans and in the format I prefer, paying $142.97 from Bull Moose (which includes FREE shipping), means I’m paying just over $17 bucks per record. Great deal for some great music. And the bloodsuckers on eBay can sit with their vinyl copies released in other countries, and cry for a bit.

  2. Simon says:

    Loving the look of this. I don’t have any of these albums on any format. Oddly, I bought the Novocaine single but never got the album and then they dropped of my radar until the Blinking Lights double when I started to buy each new album…

    6 albums at under £20 each? It’s about the going rate for new vinyl. This is very much on my Christmas list!

    • Scotty says:

      This set is also limited. So you may not want to wait until Christmas. I paid just over $17 a piece with free shipping here in the states.

    • Simon says:

      Got it today. Lovely! Can’t wait t unwrap it when I get it again on Christmas morning ;-)

  3. Gareth says:

    It’s cheaper via the band’s website (£80), and the first 100 come with art prints.

  4. BritinDetroit says:

    With Matthew on this one – Cannot say enough nice things about E and the Eels but have long since owned the catalog and have no interest in vinyl.

  5. Julian Hancock says:

    Nice to see something like this at a comparatively reasonable price.

  6. Dogfacedboy says:

    Unsurprisingly ordered this within seconds. Only have the reissue of BF and, natch, and original of ‘Souljacker’ on vinyl. This costs the same as I paid for the Blinking Light vinyl box so it’s a steal.

    Whachoo mean, one born every minute? :-)

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      I was late to the party with EELS, but thanks to ‘Meet the EELS’ and ‘Useless Trinkets…’ I think he/they are amazing!

  7. Presley Spigot says:

    Never trusted this E character. It all followed too hot on the heel of Cobain’s suicide and the whole “I’m so miserable I want to die” loud-quiet grunge schtick had run its course by 1994. Bandwagonning.

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Very harsh thing to say. He’s had to endure plenty of real life heartache and didn’t need to jump on any bandwagons.

      • Presley Spigot says:

        That may be so (real life heartache) but the art he spins with it sounds false to my ears. I can’t buy his bruised American whiny Hollywood damaged kid stab at authenticity. It’s every teenager who discovered Sylvia Plath and decided to pour their heart into affected hate. The Eels slip off the edge of the real. You only have to listen to that horrid first album and everything that’s wrong with the 90s rears up before you, and you’re like “no, please, let’s never return there.”

        • Paul Sinclair says:

          I really like the music so I don’t really think of it in those terms. I guess if the music irritates you then you are much more likely to be cynical etc.

        • Gummo says:

          Read ‘Things The Grandchildren Should Know’, and you’ll realise he’s not in Creed.

  8. BritinDetroit says:

    Hey Paul, If you are new to the catalog, could I recommend “Blinking Lights and Other Revelations” ? It was critically acclaimed and culminates with the masterpiece “Things the Grandchildren should know” – Folks of my generation would freely describe the double album as Fabgear
    Yours in RSG

    • Dogfacedboy says:

      The use of “Things The Grandchildren Should Know” at the end of the great Parallel Worlds, Parallel Lives is heart-breaking especially the verse dealing with his relationship with his father that the film explores.

  9. Joachim says:

    @Presley well, to question authenticity in white middle class teenage riot is legitimate for nearly all pop culture phenomena. I cant see why to emphesize the Eels. To slip of the edge of the real is to me a holy privilege of every artist. Anyway…
    … This is what I waitet for. Nevertheless I will wait for the prices at Amazon .de and .it. For Euro paying customer the .us and co.uk prices vary a only a few euros (on a high level).

    The live album Electro-Shock Blues Show is NOT included in the MP3 downloads!
