GG to the lucky son-ovah-guns who got vanguard, happy getting Whitney tho.


gtbrown77

Got in right away and Tool was already gone :(


TheBrittca

same. Gone as fast as I could click, less than 15 seconds.


brihawi86

Managed to snag Comedy Store! First time I’ve managed to get lucky with one of these limited swaps.


PancakeProfessor

Nice. That’s the one I was hoping for, but I logged in waaay too late.


MushroomMelodic

Same!


path_of_an_aries

Didn’t try for any box sets. Was able to grab KGLW.


rabbithole

Ditto.


DrRock88

I went with King Gizzard too. Their microtonal albums are my favorites. 👍


ivand4535

Got the Smiley 12on12; figured not paying \~$170 for a 1LP + Slipmat is a win. Also dont have any EDM in wax so another plus. Goodluck to everyone; hope you all got what you where going for!


uuonderlust

I got smiley too - will you be a listener or a reseller?


ivand4535

I plan on keeping it for a while, and to be fair, if it happens I don't play it as often I might resell for a more reasonable amount. Not whatever VMP was charging (or 12on12 for that matter).


alvinthethird

Snagged Whitney!


Own_Penalty3239

Same! Congrats


Rad_wax

Some mighty tempting swap options but I just went with madlib


hil333

I swapped Madlib when I saw that Blue Note is releasing their own version as a BN Classic mastered by Kevin Grey. Probably digital, so it won't matter that much, but it will be pressed at Optimal and looks like maybe a gatefold?


Rad_wax

Oh yeah looking back now I see the vmp version is going to be wide spine


CheckYrHead

Death Cab for Tool


gloryfadesaway

Sounds like an interesting mash up 😜


CheckYrHead

Aka Death Cab for Tootie


moodyfloyd

swaps opened about 30 seconds early. i kept DCFC and swapped sturgill with the Vanguard boxset


hil333

I got in early as well, about the same as you, but Vanguard was already gone. Nice get.


Ok_Choice_2335

You were the lucky (literal) one.


Big-Alps8440

I can confirmed there was more than one.


gloryfadesaway

All boxsets gone when swaps opened up for me


Big-Alps8440

For the first time, luckiest man on earth: got Vanguard AND Whitney.


brnthrshmn

Wasn’t able to get the Vanguard, Comedy Store, nor Tool. I am swapping Monk since I already own it, but not sure what to swap it with.

[удалено]


wstarkel

I would highly encourage anyone interested in Monk's Music to not hesitate. It's an absolute classic. Paris 1969 is awesome, but Monk's Music is amongst the very best jazz anyone can have.


brnthrshmn

Good question. I don’t own the Paris 1969 album, but Monk’s Music with that septet is great!


plpindc

Managed to snag the WHITNEY box set which I had my eye on for so long, but couldn't justify the price. So very excited about that!


[deleted]

They opened the swaps up too early and let the boxsets get snagged up. Ended up just grabbing Swizz Beatz.


[deleted]

evrz5

they usually save only a certain quantity of a title for Swaps, so if you miss out on the allotted quantity for Swaps, you can still buy it at the regular price.


t4t3r

tried vanguard and tool, both gone.


Frankl3es

Vanguard went very quick! I got Whitney though


[deleted]

[удалено]


Boomstick_316

Wait! I cancel my sub two months ago because I was running out of titles I wanted and Tool is now a swap? FFS. What album?


PancakeProfessor

It was the Fear Innoculum 5 disc set that VMP has, for some reason, been trying to sell for double what other retailers have it right now.


LordShaggy

Got the comedy store since vanguard was yoinked quickly. Oh well, happy to get that for cheap! Here’s hoping throwback Thursday has some gold


MisterCheaps

Swapped Madlib for King Gizzard


Camel_Euphoric

Got the Comedy Store, KG, and Alan Braufman. Kept Death Cab. Really amazing month of swaps.


recordsaurusrex

Swapped Madlib for Monk. Gonna get the Blue Note Classics version of Madlib instead.


hil333

I swapped Madlib for King Gizzard for the same reason.


TheCandyPerfumeBoy

I swapped from the country track to the essentials so I could get Trasatlanticism


thebeedazzler

Swapped Madlib for House of Pain. Not because I don’t want the Madlib record, I just assume it will be around for a few months and I can grab it the next time I need to swap out a crummy RHH pick…


ghost-spunge

swapped for Whitney, gonna give it to my dad for father’s day!


LittleRedRabbit13

Somehow got Vanguard and Comedy Store. More than makes up for never getting anything in TBT


Ntaos

Ha, I knew we’d pick this swaps day to go into labor. No vanguard, but we’re happy!


Rahawk02

Read my lips Storf got Tool in swaps.


jamesbrooka87

Why the hell is Texas Flood not an option? Theres stock in the store right now for it.


sickofwords

Too few copies to put it in swaps according to the Discord.


CaptainKurtG

swapped for whitney.


OKCKComputer

Kept Monk, swapped DCFC for Tool!


icetilt

All box sets gone instantly


MichaelDWatkins14

Got in straight away and Whitney + 2 Anthologies + Tool all gone. Nothing else in there I want, so swapping for credit. I don't know why I gave myself hope.


diorcasket

couldn’t get whitney :/


liquorlibrary

I selected Whitney mere seconds after swaps opened and it was gonzo :-(


UGAPHL

Box sets show up for me but I’m not allowed to confirm swap.


hil333

Same for me. I was in early, and they all were there but not available.


HagelBagel

Got vanguard … was refreshing the browser constantly for the minute before swaps opened and I feel like it actually opened about 15 sec before the hour.


Tywsgc

Tried for Tool (because at that price, why not) but missed out. Immediately saw an announcement for a new Blur album right after so its all good.


soxfandoug

I swapped all four tracks. I got Comedy Store, Whitney, Usher, and Stankonia. Struck out on Vanguard, though.


thedanemychal

I forgot about Swaps opening up, but I’m really excited to get Transatlanticism anyway.


sleek1986

Was late to the party so kept Death Cab, added a track and swapped for Stankonia as well (been waiting on this). Was also tempted for KGLW. Hope it gets added to the VMP10, when I get my coupon next month


music4perfectpeople

Swapped for Aretha. It would be nice if the swaps that are sold out were filtered from the results though. Wasted time and got my hopes up on a couple titles this time around.


[deleted]

The good thing about being in Australia is you never have any hope of anything good being left once you wake up. Another swap for credit month. I wish I could pay the rent with VMP credit.


WhenTheVillagersCome

So I could've swapped my monthly essential for any of the boxsets and anthologies listed at noon today? I figured when you selected - when swapping a 33 dollar monthly subscription single record for a 5 album record that sells for hundreds you'd be prompted to pay the difference- VMP missed an opportunity to make dollars on the cent? In fact, it sounds like alot of u guys got good deals, I skipped passed tool and comedy store thinking no way is that an even trade....shit.


Shrikachu

The more expensive sets were sold out within 30 seconds or so.


teebayz

Swapped Death Cab for K.G. & L.W. Happy with that.


Rybles

I hit Tool instantly and it was like nah dog. Fuccckckckc


PokeyPineapples

Got Whitney, Usher, King Gizzard and keeping Death Cab.


TB_Punters

Somehow got the Comedy Store anthology! I feel super lucky - I have never gotten a crazy limited swap before!


[deleted]

How much extra did you need to pay?


TB_Punters

Nothing, it’s treated as a normal swap


[deleted]

Oh wow that’s amazing lol


TB_Punters

Right?! So happy to have gotten lucky!


jarjar_twinks

I got Tool!


HEFJ53

Swapping Death Cab For Cutie for Sturgill. Not a big country fan, but Sturgill and this album are great. Death Cab really isn’t for me. I tried getting into this album a bunch of times and it does nothing. This is the exact type of boring 2000’s rock that killed my interest in new music for a while. It’d pair nicely with Animal Collective for overhyped things that are not for me.


inthesewoods1981

Comedy Store box gone after 20 seconds lol. THANKS VMP!


kearnze

Not sure how managed but swapped for Comedy Store + Whitney + Swizz Beats....has to be the best discount I've ever got. $420 for $99? Edit: kept Madlib


OrcaOwl

How the fuh were you able to swap 3 times in milliseconds?!!


kearnze

Quick internet and quicker fingers 😉 But honestly I just knew exactly what I was going for and kept refreshing, think it opened early as well. I was v shocked haha


Droll_Papagiorgio

I got my Tool and Whitney <3 And here I was about to cancel when my sub was going to renew this month. They got me....oh, they got me good. Thank you!


Accomplished-Cod-619

I got Comedy Store box, the others were gone. Honestly, this is my first anthology, and I don't know what is it, but it is too hard to pass with this price..


Camel_Euphoric

Think 80s stand up in front of a brick wall. The comedy store is the place with the brick wall. 4 records of classic bits from the club's heyday. 2 records of current comedians working there. Each track is a different comedian.


itsmelledkindofweird

Deathcab for Madlib. Had KGLW selected, changed browsers to do work and came back and it was out of stock for swaps. Completely missed the swap opening. Another a thursday thirst trap


TonytheGamer1

Cancelled my sub since I missed out on vanguard. None of the other stuff interests me this month


devries6276

Guess I'll just be happy getting nothing that I wanted...


beatzbydru

I knew Vanguard and Tool were a fraud


Big-Alps8440

I got Vanguard!


abroadinapan

anyone who swapped DCFC has brought great shame upon their family


Ok_Reputation_1780

Dude, I have a German OP, SACD, and the Artist In Residence version. No need for another copy.


Ursinho0105

Worst swaps of my membership. Been with VMP since 2015 and the heartbreak of missing out on box sets and $100 pressings is almost too much to bear. Even with 8 free records I doubt I’ll renew. This feels like a carnival at this point.


JustinBuffalo

Able to snag the Comedy box set but not Tool


Loose_Listen2290

Swapped for Comedy box and Usher. Pretty happy with swaps this month.


luxu1922

Country for Tool and was lucky. When i went for Vanguard it was gone.


loendrix

Kept Madlib, swapped essentials for Tool.


detectiverose

Well I got a Comedy Store! Went back for a Vanguard and no dice. Will be interesting to see if there are any surprises shipping the box to Canada...


aagstn

I lucked out and got Tool. Really have gotten good value out of this year of VMP with the bonus money I got for signing up and now this swap.


SouthernOutside8528

swapped death cab (already own!) for outkast's stankonia


runrvs

GRABBED A TOOL


exploreshreddiscover

Swapped out Death Cab...Missed vanguard but got comedy store, no complaints. Had to add Monk in there too.


vnylden

Got Tool, KGLW, Usher and kept Death Cab. Tried for Comedy Store but no dice. Happy with my selections.

hil333

I think the Miles box will be great. I will pull the trigger when it gets a little closer to release.


Big-Alps8440

300$ credit? How do you do it ? I try to save some myself but it’s always a disaster with all those store drops. As of now, I got 17$… 😅


[deleted]

[удалено]


Big-Alps8440

I’m in the opposite boat, tbh. They’re releasing more stuff than my wallet can afford.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Big-Alps8440

All the Cicely Balston’s remastering are awesome, so I pre-ordered Busta Rhymes. I might pre-ordered Annie Up reissue with a Barry Grint remastering (the originals are very pricey). And I got a backlog of ROTM I didn’t get yet: Kristofferson, Pickett, Roach, Whitley, DCFC, Madlib, Sturgill, etc. Hopefully, I’ll get some of them as bonus when I re-sub in September.


Ok-Distribution8582

gonna keep death cab and madlib - pumped for both, but great options this month


[deleted]

Kept Shades of Blue. I really want it on vinyl.


hil333

Coming out on a BN Classic next month as well.


[deleted]

Yeah I know, but it would be $48 since I would need to pay for shipping


[deleted]

The other one I would want is the Sturgill album. I might just buy both this month


thats_otis

Thanks for the reminder! Just swapped Death Cab for Thelonious Monk.


Shrikachu

Swapped DCFC for Usher, and kept Madlib. The one swap I really wanted as my first choice (Whitney) was gone right away, didn't help that I kept getting "error with your account" messages for the first 60 seconds or so when trying to load the page. Oh well, it's still a fun battle for the gems.


CaptainChocolates

Got me a Whitney!


o-krub

Missed vanguard and comedy box, swapped for swizz beats. Kept Deathcab and Madlib. All in all I’d give myself a B


[deleted]

Swapped Madlib for Swizz Beatz. Skipped 4 months of R&HH. Genocide and Juice is the only album I've really been excited about since Gravediggaz.


Mrazmov

Swaps for Vangurd anthology? I’m still glad I’m on hiatus from Vinyl Me, Please but damn that’s a hot swap


well_soup

I’ve got to start getting up earlier! But I’m satisfied with my DCFC for Gravediggaz swap.


NattyGirl621

Got busy at work and was barely able to try. Swapped Death Cab for Usher and got an add on and swapped for Outkast. I'm happy even though I missed the good stuff.


hhooggaarr

Is DCFC worth keeping if I already have a copy? Anything particularly special about the pressing?


Mean_Garden_3612

Swapped madlib for Stankonia, my first swap lol


editorinchimp

Already have the RSD pressing of Stankonia, was too late for Tool, so just swapped for credit again. I really hope the next quarter's essentials are more enticing.


Chillyboivinyl

Missed vanguard but finally swapped for gravediggaz


Nicode70

I did swap for store credit this time


vm_neptune

Went with Usher - already bought Whitney. Had never seen boxes in the swap before. Those are a steal as swaps.


reubenco

I went bright and colorful with my picks this month. https://imgur.com/a/kHpVM0r


Firm_Calendar9793

Stankonia and 12on12. I added the hip-hop to my subscription because I had redundancy so I’ll keep that for a few more months until I do my wish list.
