I'm an infrequent poster here but I just noticed that Recombo DNA was
released 10 years ago last month and at the time of release I was one
who bitched about the high price, and here we are 10 years later and
the original edition of 5000 is apparently still not sold out and is
still $40.

Maybe the new CD will stimulate sales

to be fair, though, recombo dna is an extremely tough listen. there
are about 5-6 songs on it that i can stand to listen to.

however, it's totally worth it just to get the poster of the fantastic
tape box cover art mark draws. the one for "devo has feelings too"
that has alan playing drums with a tear in his eye is classic.

I have not heard it except for the most excellent "Recombo DNA" title
track, if this was a B side to a single of the era and was only on
ithis 45 and it was $40 on the collectors market I would buy it but
because it's on a 2 CD set I can't bring myself to lay out the cash
(authentic collectible vs manufactured collectible more or less)
