    Feel was also missing from the original CD release. No room for it I assume.

    Aaahh.. It was on the original LP release. 20 years as a fan, and I never knew that.. (Untrue fan-alert!)

    And a fantastic version it is!
    I would have loved The Tower on this one, one of the highlights in last year´s set.
    And TGC from Bremen.
    And so many more

    Info from Stickman too:

    Presales for all 5 volumes of the Motorpsycho Roadwork series are going live next Friday, May 25th, 4 pm CET.

    Roadwork is a series of live recordings released on no particular schedule by the band whenever they deem appropriate. Previously only volumes 1, 2 and 4 were available on CD and LP, while volume 3 was only available as part of the Haircuts DVD. Along with these 4 records, we're bringing you the brand new volume 5 including music from recent Motorpsycho tours with Kristoffer Lo.

    These 5 records will all be available on colored 180gr vinyl - stop by http://www.stickman-records.com next Friday to preorder your copies!

    Be interesting to see what color vinyl the Vol. 4 edition from Stickman will be. Seeing as the color of the others (as indicated by Runegrammofon) follow the color tone of the pictures on the album covers, maybe orange/light brownish?

    Hell (Part1-5)...looking forward to ordering them tomorrow. No limits on Stickman,
    but I guess no shipping to Norway. And...they did believe me with a bloodred Vol.1.
    Told them a few times, as I don't have that one on VINYL. My buddy Markus has that signed,
    maybe one day I'll kill him for that...hahahaha...
    Tonight is Peter Hammill. Wish me luck for taping. TyskSpacey

    oh...and of course the Lacuna jam must be from Leipzig. 26 mins of pure magic.
    Who needs Chick Corea on Fender Rhodes if you have Kristoffer Lo?

    So today's the day - presale at Stickman starts at 1600 CET.

    I still can't decide what to do. I don't have a record player, and the only vinyl I currently own is En Konsert For Folk Flest. I'm pretty sure 5 will be released on CD or download at some point. But will 3? Should I just dive in and buy both vinyl/CD packages anyway? Decisions decisions.

    I do have RW III on DVD and extracted the audio for private use on CD - but still I think this is no comparison to a specially mastered good old vinyl copy.

    In hindsight I regret not having bought several MP records on vinyl (Phanerothyme, BHBC), even though I mostly listened to CDs at the time. In fact MP turned me back to vinyl again.
    I never regretted buying any MP album on vinyl, even though I had most of them on CD already. They're getting quite rare after a while, or at least don't lose much value over the years. And maybe one day you'll even own a record player again?

    @Johnny I wouldn't buy vinyl simply because the albums retain or go up in value. I'm not interested in buying them with a future thought of re-selling them. I also think it highly unlikely that I'll ever buy a record player or get back into buying vinyl instead of CD or download. The only thing I miss about vinyl is the packaging. To my worn down ears, there's no material difference in the sound. I'm also not going to be a collector - a friend who also just got into MP about six months ago immediately started collecting everything on vinyl - he alrady has about 95% of the back catalogue! He'll be ordering all the new Roadwork vinyl releases (1, 2, 3, 5) this afternoon. I'll probably still end up buying the vinyl/CD package anyway - I have a feeling this is going to be a purchase driven by emotion

    Order placed @ Stickman, site even went down there for a bit!
    Decided on vol. 3 and 5, since I already own vol. 4 and have 1 & 2 on cd.
    Definately the best way to spend some money on records.

    Vol 3 + 5 ordered. Exciting times as always! The Demon box box is supposed to come next week as well.

    @punj if you usually buy CDs, look at them as CDs with really awesome packaging.

    Where? Only says "coming up" when I try to click on the RW 5 releases...

    EDIT: Nevermind, the "add to cart" buttons appeared now

    Please can you confirm if all versions include a CD. It looks like the Stickman versions don't have a CD while the Rune Grammofon ones do? Or perhaps it wasn't clear on the website.

    @ Punj Lizard: So should it be. I started rebying the stuff on vinyl almost exclusively for the emotional extra value.
    Then sometimes vinyl really sounds better - but that depends on the mastering of album and/or CD. Many early CD reissues of great albums were just awful soundwise. My copy of "Axis Bold As Love" I bought second hand in London ages ago with lots of surface scratches still sounds much much better than most of its rereleases.

    What I meant regarding collector value - sometimes you decide to get the album version years after release and then have to face astronomical prices which is just a shame.
    On the other hand with MP vinyl it will not happen to you that you will find your favourite albums in the cheap sale department after a while which can be quite heartbreaking for a true fan. Happened to me with my favourite Hawkwind albums of the early 90s...

    Hey, got 3 and 5 at Rune and Stickman. The others, 1,2,4 i bought while they came out, years ago. But i dont need the cloured reissues. Mostly i buy 2 pieces from special editions, to have something for swapping or as a present for friends.
    Does someone have "strings of stroop", the last vinyl witch is missing in my collection???

    Ordered the whole buch at Stickman...was just surprised that 3 and 5 weren´t available on black vinyl, too, as on Rune...

    No, I think they still have the original press still available.

    Stickman's cover images of RW V say "2LP" while it should say "3LP" - hope this is only on the pics and not on the real artwork

    @Johnny, @Elvin - I am persuaded. Decided on both 3 and 5 in coloured vinyl from Rune.

    Thanks Smarti333s, really appreciate it. I am still in the CD camp but will probably choose the cheapest option to deliver 3 and 5 to the UK. I don't mind missing the coloured vinyl. Peace to all.
