Weird situation though ... cause say it does go up for order and there isn't a vinyl option ... then ADR is doing all the press for the vinyl release themselves, without the push coming from the full album announcement.
That's totally true. I can sympathize with Joe on that completely. And I'm not trying to "smack talk" Joe or Ace, but I'm aware too that communication was just kind of crappy throughout their whole ordeal.
I don't think it's the end of the world to launch vinyl after an album is released, but only if the artist can do an okay job of promoting it. And once again with ADR/Ace, it just didn't seem like Ace did all that much to help promote it. If I were a band/artist, it wouldn't be the best of the world to set a reminder in my calendar every other week to tweet or post about buying the vinyl or something like that. You know?
