Thanks man. I just ordered it. I had never heard of them before and got it for a few bucks cheaper too. I ordered the disc on Amazon at the beginning of the month and it's still pending.


You’re safe with Bull Moose, I’ve ordered a good number of records from them over the years.

This is a long shot, but if anybody finds this vinyl soundtrack at a Target, I'll pay you $30 paypal for it.

It's been on the market and reissued 3 times, but never bought it and now that I finally have a turntable It's sold out everywhere, even Amoeba Music has it sold out.


There’s a couple of recent pressings on Discogs for around $35

Mine arrived with a smushed corner, but was sealed. Otherwise looks great.


This seems to be how the bulk of them arrived at retail, it was pretty hard to find one in a good shape or that didn’t have a spider-wrap constricting the hell out of it.

You can almost always find them on the website under the about the item/more details of the item in question.

But here's the brickseek link also.

Exactly! Always under the product details page.

Furthermore, Brickseek has a DPCI locator above the zip code field on the Target inventory checker.

What's the consensus on how the Nespresso tastes? I normally buy lattes from Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts when I need a coffee fix. I hate the taste of Keurig machines. Would I like the Nespresso? I probably should've asked this question before I went driving around Long Island and coming up short at 4 different locations. Best I found were a discontinued model (Inissia) which was returned ($199), and then an opened VertuoPlus minus Aeroccino ($139).


I would say that really depends on how you enjoy espresso vs. coffee. I’m certainly no snob, but I’ve come to hate the watered-down coffee that Keurig machines produce over the last decade. With Nespresso, as long as you stick with Nespresso branded or Peet’s Coffee pods, they taste pretty good. Is it the worlds best Espresso? No, but for a quick, no fuss espresso or lungo, you can really beat it. The Aeroccino is pretty decent for what it does and it’s super helpful in whipping up specialty drinks, such as lattes, but I don’t use mine much at all as I’ve adapted to drinking espresso black over the last couple of years.

FWIW I personally wouldn’t bother with the propitiatory Vertuo machines myself.
