maybe because its a limited edition, it costs a lot more to press limited runs, or maybe taxes.

I checked my receipts, and Baby Wants to Ride in 2013 was £12, Yellow Rez in 2014 was £10, and Long Slow Slippy in 2017 was £12.50, so yeah, this one is quite a bit more expensive.

Those had limited runs too. Baby Wants To Ride was 1000 copies, and the first pressing of Long Slow Slippy was 500 copies.

Vinyl prices have rocketed in the past few years. During my brief vinyl-collecting phase, 2013-2015, Burial's two albums were easily available new for a tenner, now they tend to retail closer to £25.

vinyl pressing costs an absolute fortune nowadays. For a 12" in a decent printed sleeve you won't make any money on a 300 pressing. You'll need to sell all of them to even come close to making your money back, and even then if the sleeve's elaborate enough you won't see anything unless you price it super high. You can manage to make a bit on an LP because the costs are basically the same (assuming you stay away from gatefold sleeves and such like) but you can price it much higher.

is there a difference between pressings from the UK and the US.

i've been waiting a year or two to catch up on a lot of vinyl boxsets,
and i'm getting them for 20-50% of their original cost. same with albums.
i've never pre-ordered, and i just wait for used or lightly used copies to show up.

boxsets that were $100-$200, go for $30-$100, i've picked up clear vinyl ones,
colored vinyl, etc, etc. not groups that people here might like but ones from;
--------------------------------
new order - movement, power corruption lies
ultravox - remixed
midge ure - orchestral, singles
heaven 17 - early albums, latter albums,
depeche mode - all 8 single compilations
blancmange - colored vinyl set
simple minds - album, rejuvenation sets

here's some of them: [drift is the cd version]

https://i.ibb.co/K5ZVHkQ/boxfronts.jpg
https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/i70AA...tGf/s-l500.jpg

there's plenty of deals out there if you wait long enough.
same goes for 12 inches, i'm getting all the remastered new order 12 inches (8 so far),
for about $10-$15 each.

This underworld 12 inch is one of the first ones i've ordered as it came out, so thats
why I guess i figured it was limited, so the price range matched for what it was.

I moved most of the general vinyl and box set discussion to the Collector's Corner thread.
