Sorry if it's been discussed but I don't have my reading glasses on....is there a black vinyl variant of ISIS' Oceanic anywhere? I see the black Panopticon on Ipecac's site but only colored variants for Oceanic. I have the 2014 Robotic Empire, which sounds, pretty good, but I may grab another.

Does anyone know if they will be doing the "live at the Royal Albert Hall?"
my guess is no, however it wouldn't be a bad idea to ask Fat Possum or contact the band via their site. They didn't do "Fucked Up Inside" which did get a reissue when Plain did all the albums a few years back. So, since that one was not in the plans, the Royal Albert Hall album may not be as well. Probably just studio albums.

I'll reach out and let you all know if I hear anything back -- it's such a great set and I'd love to have a copy.

I haven't seen one yet myself but I'd be surprised if they didn't do one.

Reminds me of the time I bought Siamese Dream on CD at Walmart and it didn't have the tracklist on the back (or anywhere on the release for that matter) due to a certain track name.
In Utero is my favorite Walmart edit “Rape Me” became “Waif Me” (only in the title obviously the song stayed the same) and the back image was quite different; aborted fetus became pond scene with turtles…

I remember coming across Reel Big Fish and Jane's Addiction albums at (I think) Sam Goody with covers like this, with the text of the first amendment, instead of editing them in the usual way:

I remember reading articles in the 90s that the driving force behind edited content on covers and Clean versions of albums was Walmart who had become the largest CD retailer in the country. They could throw their weight around and demand the pubes be airbrushed off of Amorica or they wouldn’t sell the albums. I was very happy to have a Best Buy within a 30 minute drive or my CD collection would have been much different growing up.

We saw way less of stuff like that up here in the Canadas. Or at least I did in the Vancouver area. It baffled me when I would read about stuff like that, for sure. Then again, for some reason when the Nine Inch Nails video collection Closure came out it wasn't available in BC or Ontario, as per the computer network at HMV where I worked at the time. I wound up having to borrow money from my high school track & field coach to pick it up in Blaine on our way down to a meet in Bellingham!
