  1. Was about to order it, but once I started checking out they want $16.00 for shipping. Guess I’ll just wait and pick up a copy locally or on discogs one day if the right one ever shows up. Sad part is, I saw one once in a record store in really good shape but didn’t buy it because I already had a pile in hand. Figured it would be easier to get than the others ones I had, so didn’t get it. Now every time I look the only ones I can get for the price I wanna be in are low grade copies that probably sound like shit. So I wait, and wait and wait. I’ll get one eventually, then my turn table will break or my shearers will blow or something lol

  2. Once again lets be real. Bark at the Moon is a great album. Do we need blue red or green vynal release? No. We need a deluxe version at a good price with the great Jake e Lee on Axe. This release is boring and stupid. We need a live deluxe release from this tour!!! God fucking damit!!! Before I leave this earth!! Haha
