Take Boris' three-LP series The Thing Which Solomon Overlooked I-III. Volume I came out on the Finnish label Kult of Nihilow in 2004, with 550 pressed, all on orange vinyl. In 2006, Belgian label Conspiracy released Vol. II and Vol. III in a pressing of 1,000 each. Vol. II was pressed in 700 clear orange and 300 clear green. Vol. III was pressed in 700 clear orange and 300 light blue. If all of this is correct, it means there are only 300 people who have the potential to own all three volumes in their most rarefied state.
Do you think there are people who take a very wide slice of strange joy in being part of that 300? Would you want to be seated next to one of them on a long flight? The answers to these questions are obvious.
Life is short. Get to as much music as you can. Don't get hung up on the technicalities.
