I still don't understand this remix and remaster??  What's the difference?  Seems really dumb.
They remixed the album because they have a much large amount of resources now than they did back in 2004. They probably just wanted to put out a more professional and polished mix of their first legitimate release.

Right, but I think Railroad's question is why not just do one remaster or remix, what is the point of both?
Digital needs different mastering compared to vinyl, hence why the original version was remastered. Taking a digital mix and trasfering straight to vinly results in a lot of sibilance and other unwanted noise. The remix is the new version for both medium.

That's an easy way to understand it, thanks.

Evidently Mr. Ringo is an educated man. Now I really hate him.

Anyone else getting "code invalid" when you try to download your digital copy?  I already did a support ticket with nugs.net
Yup.

I tried Umphrey's and Umphrey's merch on Facebook.  I emailed Umphrey's merch and nugs.  No response from anyone and my download code that came with my vinyl still isn't working.  I'm not even convinced the URL they listed is taking me to the right page.

I smelled it and threw it away. I laughed when I realized that's what was in the little box with the record.

I'm through Uncommon on my first listen of the OG mix and the record sounds fantastic.

in certain cases the pin shipped separately from the main order. you can drop umphreyshelp@musictoday.com an email if you'd like an update on the status. The fortune cookies were a leftover item from the holidays that we were including just for fun. If it was canceled we probably - finally - ran out of them.

New video today/tomorrow? I love Uncommon and interested to hear more behind it other than it being a funny song

It's up. It's in a pop-up video format. And no mention of anyone being stinky.

Slightly underwhelming format cause I wanted to hear them talk about it but interesting nonetheless. Hilarious that their HS band won battle of the bands and then BB got kicked out of their band in college

Iíve been emailing back and forth with nugs.net customer support. They finally got the download to work a few days ago but it was just one version at 128kbps not the 320kbps advertised.  It should have been both the remix and the remaster. Today they emailed back and said they fixed it and the other version should be available. But now it says ďdownload expiredĒ. Itís absolutely amateur hour here. I preorder day one and still canít get the download I bought.  To make it worse I only get an email back once every 24 hours at best. Sometimes theyíll ask me a question that I answer within minutes and I donít hear back for 24-48 hours.

Again, email umphreys, not nugs.  Theyíll be at summercamp for the weekend but I was having issues earlier this week and they helped out very quickly.
