From the Numero Site:
SOLD OUT! You read that correctly, Yellow Pills is officially the first Numero title to go out of print. We encourage you to download it, for free or otherwise, and if you'd like the booklet, tray card, and slipcase, we've got plenty for the low low price of (postage paid). In 1993 Jordan Oakes curated his initial Yellow Pills release, the first of a series collecting power pop essentials from 20/20, Dwight Twilley, The Rubinoos, The Plimsouls, and five dozen others. The series rapidly became the sonic rosetta stone for a newer generation of poppers who, sans the skinny ties, held true to the power pop manifesto of harmony, melody and ringing, rocking 6 and 12 string guitars.
Yellow Pills O.D.'s
When we started Numero near-on seven years ago, we envisioned keeping every number in print. We had this romantic idea of someday making a 100 album box set that comes packaged with its own shelving unit. Retail price? Way too much.
That dream dies today.
Despite our best efforts to lock down an extension for all of the tracks on Yellow Pills: Prefill, we were unable to get one artist to accept our standard Most Favored Nations deal. As we have less than 40 copies of the double CD in stock , it makes sense to put the record gently to sleep instead of destroying a repress at the eleventh hour.
