Crosseyed Heart!? I was so disappointed. Listened to it once and put it on the shelf from where it has never moved since!
What am I missing?

I agree with banditpanda Crosseyed Heart is a big let down after so long of a wait. Basically, its boring. A retread with little to distinguish it. Often plodding and amateurish. With basically two good tracks.

Talk is Cheap on the other hand is classic Keith! A fantastic record, with good writing, playing and production.

As for the 30 anniversary. I will rant about the vinyl deluxe collection. Bought it three different times because of massive warp on both albums. All three had the same warp. Terrible quality control. Reverted to the single album and it is great, a great pressing and mastering is superb.

I love all 3 of Keith's albums, too bad he hasn't done a couple more over the years.

It's been bouncing up and down since the original sale in June when it was $41 (w/free shipping US).
I've been tempted to get another copy for a friend, and have one in my "saved for later" cart watching the prices fluctuate.
One minute's it's around $45, then jumps up to $50, then back down, and back up...and currently at a whopping $140...
No place left for it to go but back down again, so I suppose if it goes back below $45 again I'll snatch it while I can.

I immediately kicked myself for not buying a second copy. I'll 'wait and see' as well.

Price is dropping back down again, slowly but surely....
Yesterday it was listed at $121 and today it's down to $116...if it drops another $70 down to around $45 I'm jumping on it haha....

That would make sense, what about Blues In The Morning?

Hairball have you actually played your vinyl? Did it have a warp like reported, or were the records fine? I only ripped the cds, haven't spun the vinyl. My records did have split seams on the cover but I shrugged it off. Would grab another if they hit under fifty again

Everything is perfect in my set - no split seams, yes the vinyl plays great, and I don't recall any reports from anyone of vinyl being warped.
That said, I do recall someone getting a Brussels Affair deluxe box set that had a warped album - I think they were actually able to send it all back for a replacement.
I had no problems whatsoever with that box set either - guess I've been lucky.

Funny I didn't see that post from whitem8 previously regarding the warped albums, but now that I have my memory has been jarred.
I'm almost 100% certain it was also whitem8 who had the warped album problem with the Brussels Affair Deluxe box I mentioned above.
If it was him, he seems to be cursed by the warped album demons...

Sorry to joke about it whitem8, but if it wasn't for bad luck, you might not have any luck at all...
And if it was you who had the Brussels Deluxe box vinyl problem, did you ever get that taken care of?
Or maybe it was the Exile Deluxe?
