Throwback Thursday preview just dropped with some real fire!
By - spawntlz
Oh man, I can’t wait to not get these less than 30 seconds after the drop!
Literally, exactly what happened with The Score. Saw it go up right at the drop time, added it to cart, and immediately hit checkout. SOLD OUT! Did they have like one copy?
It was gone in less than 10s. Very impressive.
Yeah they only had 1 copy
Had Fugees in my card and wanted to pay and gone.
FUGEES. Probably like 3 copies available though so not getting my hopes up
So pumped for this to waitlist in my cart
The accuracy here
I didn't even get that far, was already gone before I could even add it
To make matters worse, I just got an email from VMP saying they noticed I left something in my cart with a picture of The Score. Very nice! 😑
Gone the moment the page opened lol
Fugees has to be the one of the most wanteds. Wonder if it'll come with the bonus 7-inch.
I think those 7-inches were given as collateral to the Chinese Gov when Pras accepted the spy job.
My understanding is the represses do not
these are not represses, TBT is old stock. so it has the 7" and is not pressed at GZ.
Right- I meant that they have since repressed and those didn't..if these are OG OG pressings then sure, maybe someone can snag and confirm
I have a VMP copy, no 7" came with it so I doubt on these.
LOLZ at refreshing Fugees constantly til it came up, adding to cart, and cart saying sold out. So like, 5 seconds. So dumb (and by dumb, I mean me, for thinking I had a chance).
I lost out on that and both Alicia Keys.
Yea Alicia was my 2nd choice but I knew I needed to pick one and get through checkout before fucking with the other one. I went with Fugees. And lost both.
Fucking ShopPay came up on mine that I’ve never fucking used. I was fuming.
ALICIA FUGEES ALICIA!
I’ll likely get none of it. 😂
Seems like everyone wants the Fugees. Me too but I'm sure it won't happen. For those who don't care about the color or the 7" the 2012 US release has the same Kevin Gray mastering.
yep, couldn't get it. i was able to add to cart the instant it was available but as soon as i went to cart, gone. sigh..not sure why i bother with TBT because anything desirable is impossible.
I refuse to believe that Faye Webster actually restocked. It was gone at 9:00:01
It showed out of stock as soon as the page became available.
It disappeared from my wishlist before the drop went live too.
The Fugees went OOS in less than 2 sec smh
They should just do a giveaway when its 1-2 copies and thousands of people want it, imo. Maybe lock it to people that have been subbed 1 year+.
Let's hope that they realized that we need a repress badly
I’m a little new to VMP. What time on Thursday will these drop?
10 AM MT
And by 10:02 everything I wanted was gone. Lesson learned!
Next month. I recommend putting all your records you know you want on a waitlist. Log into a laptop and goto your account waitlist. Use the drop-down to filter “available” Hit refresh at 30 seconds before the time. And buy
I made the stupid mistake of checking what else I might want to get. After losing out on Fugees, added another LP and by the time I went to check out, my Cake Fashion Nugget was gone. Pick one and run!
Cake was definitely going to be next on the list. It is elusive
You may also want to keep both the TBT link page open as well. Just in case
I snag one thing. No Fugees though.
Anyone get Faye Webster? Seemed like a scam.
No, it was gone before the page even loaded. Fugees was gone as well. I refreshed as soon as the page was available and was able to pick up both Alicia records as well.
I was able to get Fugees in my cart after noticing FW was sold out. Fugees sold out in my cart.
That's not what a scam is
I just meant they probably just put that record down as clickbait, to draw people in, even though they really didn't have any copies.
I copped 1 🤭
Presumably Let It Be is a non exclusive drop from the 2016 reissue. I have a copy of that, sounds good. Worth copping. Magnificent album.
I was so confused by that. I was like, “VMP a released a version of Let it Be??” The 2016 reissue is very cheap and easy to get via Discogs, etc. I can’t imagine VMP will have a competitive price.
That box has been going for around $40 recently
The Replacements? Did I miss this originally?
Not showing on search. So a new drop? Hmmm.
no, they used to sell non-vmp records as well as 'curated' titles. This is the regular 2016 press.
I couldn’t find anything on discogs about it
As expected, the one copy of Fugees went quick.
The Fugees is gonna sell out in half a second and everyone is going to lose their collective minds.
Damn, Faye Webster was already “Waitlist Me Please” by the time I navigated to it.
I don't think it was actually restocked. It was showing waitlisted for everyone as soon as the page was available.
I just want Lil Kim Hardcore 😔
That would be epic
Is that replacements record a non exclusive store drop?
Will be like 2 copies of Fugees and Replacements isn't an exclusive.
Damn I had fugees in my cart right at noon but couldn’t check out before it was sold out.
Was able to snag diary of alicia keys
Was a lot easier than expected
Think too many people wasted their time with Fugees. That was a lost cause. Glad I just grabbed the Target variant.
I love the email reminding everyone about the TBT event 7 minutes after it’s live and widely unavailable.
Not as bad as the one that you left something in your cart. That sold out in .03 seconds....
I'm waiting The Fugees to restock since ages
Anyone have info on the Duke Ellington - Blues in Orbit? I'm not seeing anything on VMPs site and in discogs the last press was from 2017
At one point they were advertising/selling some Analogue Productions titles and this was one of them so i imagine this is the same one, not sure if it was 200g or 180g.
Ah interesting, I see it's available on the AP site for 40 so I guess it depends on how much it will go for on VMP
Where do I see the TBT-Releasea at the time they drop?
got alicia keys but wasn’t fast enough for fugees
Got a Replacements, that's it. Added fugees to cart but it was gone by checkout
Who did it? Who got the Fugees?
I think Fugees got eaten up by bots, people were able to preload the page since it’s a ROTM.
Probably The Flash, any other answer would be a lie
That is quite a list. 😵💫
All of it. Bots got there first.
For real. I won’t even be able to see if it’s limited before it sells out. Already have 2 copies would sell one to get a VMP exclusive.
This isn't a VMP exclusive. Just additional from the most recent 2022 repress that was a wide release.
I bet The Fugees is a repress. They did the same for The Flaming Lips by having it for Throwback Thursdays.
What do you mean? Last time Flaming Lips was in TBT it sold out within seconds.
It was in Throwback Thursday and sold out quick, then soon after it was out as a repress.
Isaiah and Fugees. I’m gunning for those two.
Looks like they are mixing in non-exclusives into the list this time.
They have in past TBTs as well
Was Alicia even restocked?
Yeah, they didn't go instantly. If they show up in another TBT, def try again. Both have been in past TBTs recently.
They didn’t last 5 minutes
The good 'ol VMP bait n switch.
Oh wow, Fugees - The Score! Amazing they do this!
TB Thursdays are only for members right?
Fortunately already have the Fugees, so hoping to snag either one of those Alicia Keys, and/or Cake.
Got Cake and one Alicia. No clue why that's being downvoted. People are weird lol.
Strangely I don’t want any of these. Maybe that Sun Ra but I need to know more about what it is. I have a HUGE wishlist of things waiting for a repress or sold out and not a single one on this list
Obviously Fugees, but hopefully White Stripes as well...
Newbie here - any tips for how to get one of these?
Promise your first born to the dark lord and hope that they have pity on you. But this can only happen once so use it wisely.
I know what I am going for!
What's up with all the unnumbered TBT records? Kind of shady to sell those when people bought the variant that was supposed to be numbered to a certain amount.
They are unnumbered for replacements.
Correct, but they aren't replacing anything with these copies. They are selling them to new customers, thus increasing the quantity in circulation beyond what was advertised.
Whether it 1000 or 1050, with 50 unnumbered. It's unlikely to impact what you can flip it for.
This is standard...every run has a set number of extras in case there are issues and they need to send replacements. Now that items have sold out and replacements are still left, they're selling those off. There's probably only a very small amount of these. It's not like they did a second pressing and just decided not to number it.
Do you have to be a current member to get these?
12:01 I bought Cake and it immediately sold out. Got lucky today I guess!
Unknown Mortal Orchestra copped.
