I just ordered Good As I Been To You and Love And Theft on vinyl. When they arrived I noticed they are put out by We Are Vinyl. This surprised me because I was expecting both to be Music On Vinyl releases. Can anyone shed some light on We Are Vinyl - who they are and how they compare with MOV?

Thanks!

"We are vinyl" is a Sony Music reissue program.

My "We Are Vinyl" Good As I Been To You sounds great, but my Love and Theft copy sounds terrible... I bit the bullet and ordered a "Music on Vinyl" import pressing of LAT :) (returning my "We Are Vinyl" copy). I also had the 20th Anniversary Vinyl Edition of TOOM ordered and in line for delivery this Friday, but noticed it's not a MOV release. Canceled that order and ordered the MOV pressing instead.

Sounds to me like "We are Vinyl" is anything but.

Bumping this as I'm looking to purchase GAIBTY on vinyl but got a bit confused!

One is 180 gram with download card as released by We Are Vinyl with a catalogue number of 88985438091

https://www.roughtrade.com/gb/music/goo ... een-to-you

The other is released by Sony Music CMG, doesn't include any info about download code or 180 gram and has the same catalogue number with an added 5 at the end. However some American sites do mention similar info as the other.

Is there any difference at all? Am I being a crazy person?

Unless the download is so dag nab important, I'd get the Sony, they own the master. Don't worry about 180 gram, doesn't really matter, the quality of the vinyl itself matters far more than the thickness.

Check discogs and try to get an original EU pressing from 1992. Prices on those have dropped dramatically since the album was reissued on vinyl.
With every album released in the early 1990s or earlier, I would always try to find an original pressing, before taking recent reissues into consideration.

I have a very rare and signed copy of my favorite album donated to me by my good friend Man On A Bridge.

Though not the infamous Chum Lee, it does carry a nice weight value of 200G
