Me and Mr. Johnson on Vinyl Anyone Heard It?

Could this new-issue vinyl signal the return of records for $8.95 a piece? Or--much more likely--is this the harbinger of savvy biz people feeding on audiophiles' willingness to spend $25.00 on less than an hour of recorded music? If it really is the latter, is it worth it?
I guess that's up to you (us?). I have to admit i am appalled when i see people trying to sell these releases here and through audio dealers for more than twice what i find them for brand new in the music stores.

I bought it on vinyl, which was priced at $11.95 (the same price the CD was selling for at the same store). All the current releases have been selling for the same or less than the CD at this particular local store.

I have listened to it, and was not particularly impressed with the sound quality of the copy i have, but the VTA/F on my Rega table is better suited to thinner records i normally play.
I don't have a VTA device for this table yet, and frankly this LP as well as a nora jones release (both 200gm) are forcing me to buy one as i suspect that is why they sound lackluster on my table where other vinyl sounds excellent.
Me and Mr. Johnson sounds like a great name for one of those "My Baby Left Me" country songs.
Just got my copy from my local record store. They still stock new vinyl, and I also paid the same for the record as I did the cd, in my case 14.95.
Vinyl is still available to venders, and of corse venders usually don't carry the same selection as they do in cd, because they are dealing with a limited market. It also seems that vinyl is pressed mostly for the overseas market, and in fact, my sample of mr. johnson evan says so. Another record store here also sells imported vinyl, pressed overseas, and obviously, these are more expensive. Evan in some cases, I have seen new imports that were pressed in the u.s.
I have seen vinyl that was cheaper than the cd, which leads me to believe that records are cheaper to make, but it also depends on the record company, who they have press the records, who they let press the records, and who the venders can get them from, and then of corse, where you can get them from.
My pressing was made in the u.s., and is the standard 140 gram, not an audiophile type pressing, and not 180 or 200 gram. To me records are always better, as far as sound quality goes, not just because I like the sound of records, but because it is just a superior format, and that is why I buy them when I can. In this particular case, the pressing is more than good enough that I can tell that the biggest hinderence to the fidelity of this record seems to me the use of protools, which is on the credits on the sleeve. In my limited experience with protools, it is a really useful way for engineers to record and mix, really fast, but seems to produce that flat, sterile, lack-of-information sound that sounds like a cd. The overall recording and mixing is still pretty good, and the performance is good, and the mastering seems to capture that, I can still hear what everyone is doing, and feeling, but it does'nt sound like a great super-recording that takes a lot of effort on the part of the engineers, mixers, and mucisions that is nessessary for the greatest recordings. Still, I appreciate the work they did and what they created (the album and the overall quailty it does have) and the fact that it is available on vinyl so that I can hear it at its best.
