Gogol Bordello – Trans-Continental Hustle (1st Press)

Posted: September 11, 2010 in Vinyl

Like all of Gogol Bordello’s other full lengths, Trans-Continental Hustle was pressed as a double LP. Not sure how many were pressed, but when these frist came out the were on the pricey side, even for a double LP. Their other full lengths were $20 or less, while this new album is $25. The price jump is no doubt due to this album being on a major label. The price tag was why I held off on purchasing this album for a long time, and luckily I was able to snag one on ebay from $15 shipped. So I saved $10 thanks to an awesome seller who decided to list this with a starting price of $7 for whatever reason.

This apparently went OOP for a while without anyone noticing. There is a second pressing coming out at the end of August 2013, it’s even being re-issued on CD. So it might be safe to assume the first pressing was limited in some manner, but how many copies is still unknown. All of Gogol Bordello’s other albums have remained in print since their release. The only thing to sell out was the limited variants if there was one for a particular album. For me it’s just odd that their most expensive album actually went OOP, with it rarely being marked down anywhere. Which could mean there was as few as 1,000 or 2,000 copies pressed initially.
