    Ironic that this comes right after you announce the Moody Blues reissue….

  2. Tim says:

    Not sure that’s ‘irony’ rather than coincidence…lets ask Alanis…

  3. Heinz says:

    Ordered!
    Thanks Paul!

  4. Tony Orwell says:

    and the money train just keeps a rolling

  5. Daryl says:

    I’m no rocket scientist admittedly, but wouldn’t blue vinyl have been a better idea?

  6. Tony Orwell says:

    a Transparent Blue vinyl has been done on the us issue so it will be interesting to see where this stands next to the original

  7. BJ says:

    It was originally released on blue vinyl back in 1977.

    • AlexKx says:

      Yes, but was it CLEAR blue vinyl? That is important! :) (Don’t get me wrong I’d probably get both, eh!)

      • Peter Piazza says:

        I’ve just had a look at my original blue vinyl pressing from 1977. If “clear” means transparent, then the area of the lead out groove is “clear,” but the area occupied by the music groove is only translucent. Can someone (I don’t think it will be myself) provide a description of the 40th anniversary edition when it is released?

    • Scott says:

      True. The first pressing was blue vinyl. The subsequent black vinyl pressing is actually the rare one, because after Elvis’ death all future pressings were also done in blue.

      “Moody Blue” is one of my favorite Elvis singles. I know I am in the minority, but the post-movie period is my favorite Elvis era.

      • Joe says:

        Hey Scott just wondering, is it all the black wax pressing in the States and the ones from Canada pressed in black that are rare?????

  8. Peter says:

    Yes, the original was on clear blue vinyl (other word for transparant), the recent Friday Music pressing was also on clear blue vinyl, it would have been nice to press another color for a change, like solid blue or marbeled blue or splatter blue (could go on and on)

  9. Chris says:

    This is a weird reissue to me. It’s not a hard album to get on blue vinyl now, since a majority of them were pressed on blue here in the states. I know there are other colors of it floating around but they are very rare and expensive. Why not white, or yellow. Either of those would have made more sense.

  10. Andrew says:

    The blue one shows up in New Zealand in $4 bins all the time.

    I have an original coloured vinyl issue for sale if anyone is interested…
