Picked up a few extra copies of Best of the Solos. They are going to sell out fast.

I’m thinking about getting the Resurrected shirt. I wish I could see a real photo of the shirt. 🙂

Just snagged a copy of "Best Of The Solos". Not wanting to spin my colored vinyl version so this is going to be a good backup.

Does anyone know which pressing of "Best Of Solo Albums" this is? Other than the colored vinyl version, Discogs doesn't show a new German vinyl pressing since 1980.

I was getting ready to order "best of solos" when I saw the email but wanted to check the consensus here first. Ordered! Too bad they don't have a double platinum.

It is only a matter of time before Double Platinum gets the treatment. There are only two more years before the 45th Anniversary.

I recently got back into collecting vinyl, apparently at just the right time too, as I scooped up new copies of nearly all of the studio and live albums.

Is there a resource that can give us a heads up before releases like this hit KOL? I'd hate to shell out a pile of cash for an old one when I can have a virgin copy at retail if I would have held out just a little while longer.

No Love Gun? Checking out the shirts but that is my favorite album cover. RARO and classic Destroyer would be good too,

Not surprising as they fetch a good buck on Ebay.

Yeah I ordered a Best of Solos and got the email that it already shipped. I’ll be happy with whatever version it ends up being, but I’m confused as discogs does not list this version and discogs is usually spot on accurate

I've never had anything but good experiences with DHL. I ordered the KISS Off The Soundboard CD from Japan on a Saturday night and recieved it that Wednesday afternoon.

Dunno about a heads up before, but KOL sends me emails when new shit hits...

Re- Best of the Solos

So if they are black vinyl - they are a new release pressing?

If they are splatter, that is a great deal!

Glad I ordered!

Last time they dropped the record in front of my mailbox. Didn't bother to come up my road to my house which clearly has my address on the fence and my house.

I'll have to get on that email list.

I could just plunk down what it takes to finish my collection, but part of the fun is getting a deal. :)

With Best of the Solo's and the Shout it Out Loud selling out so fast, buyers have to be quick too!

Me too!!! Can't wait to see what I end up with. Will it be black vinyl? Will it be splatter vinyl? Who knows???

Rumor is, though, that these are the remaining copies of the splatter version that were shipped over from Germany to sell on KOL. I can't wait to see the first copies that arrive.

They are the splatter...there is no other thing they could possibly be.

This is funny. Living in Germany makes me look out for vinyl sporting the original logo, therefore buying from the UK. Now I see you all grabbing records with that ugly german logo which make me think I just should have offered my stuff to make some good money out of it. :lol:

Too late!

What is a bad price, though, are the damn t-shirts. Nearly $40 after shipping and tax! Still ordered one, though. For some reason I want some German logo shirts without the cosplayers on them. I have a Reunion tour shirt already and I just ordered DTK...figured the logos all around would give me my fix of German logos...
Got my order today. Super happy with BOSA...that was a great value buy! I'm not impressed with the Dressed to Kill shirt, though. You basically can't make out any of the dark logos that border the photo. All you can really see is the one white logo. That's not at all the case with the normal DTK shirt I have...I was expecting that same kick-ass shirt with German logos. For nearly $40 shipped, it's quite the disappointment. But I guess the BOSA score more or less evens it out...

My best of solos arrived with a severely bent corner, super bummed. I already sent them an email, but I know they’re gonna tell me it’s out of stock, so I guess I’m shit out of luck.
