I have In 3-D, Dare To Be Stupid, Even Worse, and Greatest Hits on vinyl. I also have picture sleeve 45s of "Eat It" and "King Of Suede".

I keep forgetting that Greatest Hits was released on vinyl.

Should I get it? Ehhh...

I got my copy of Alpocalypse in the mail today!

I'm still unsure about opening it, but I definitely want to see if I could get Al to sign it, assuming I a meet and greet happens after one of the concerts I go to.

if you guys want to look for a REALLY scarce Al album on vinyl, Off The Deep End was released on LP in the Philippines only (and no i don't mean the best of yankovic compilation or the 12" smells like nirvana single) but the one time i ever saw it for sale, it was on ebay with a starting bid of $250

does anyone on here actually have this?

I wanna say Lazenby does, but he might've just mentioned it in passing one time...

A search on Ebay returns a lot of results for the older albums. Time to start buying.

Problem is, they cost about 6-10 dollars not counting shipping with is about twice as much.

I didn't know where else to post this, but yesterday I stopped by my local record store in Boulder ("Albums on the Hill") to pick up "Patton Oswalt's Finest Hour" (after Tony Goldmark recommended it to me on Facebook) and I was just casually looking through their vinyl section to see if they had "Alpocalypse". They didn't have this, but strangely enough they did have a copy of "Selections From Straight Outta Lywnood". This is a promotional record sent to radio stations that has W&N, Drive-Thru and Confessions Pt. III on it. I totally bought it even though I had nothing to play it on and $5.99 was a bargain for a rare collectible item! When I paid for it, the guy behind the counter asked me if I saw Al in Denver last month and I said of course. He put on a great show and I met him afterwards. He said he's saw him a few times, but just not on this current tour and even said he's a real professional and a lot of musicians could learn a thing or two from him about putting on a live concert and how it was more than just a novelty.

Yeah I have the Selections from SOL thing. It's not difficult to find. It's a pretty cool little collectible.
