Here are some off the top of my head that I'd like to see pressed or pressed again. My all-time would-kill-for-a-vinyl-copy album is definitely Gin Blossoms - New Miserable Experience.

Repress:
The Hold Steady - Almost Killed Me
The Hold Steady - Separation Sunday
Brand New - Deja Entendu
The Dismemberment Plan - Emergency & I
Bruce Springsteen - The Rising
Built to Spill - There's Nothing Wrong with Love
Counting Crows - August and Everything After
Death Cab for Cutie - The Photo Album
Jimmy Eat World - Clarity

Never been pressed:
Gin Blossoms - New Miserable Experience
The Dismemberment Plan - Change
Any of the three records/mixtapes by The Weeknd

Been pressed. Needs a repressing so hard though. I would kill for that.

This. Also Lonesome Crowded West by Modest Mouse.

This too.

yeah I know, I meant re-press.
It was pressed a few years ago and I paid like $15 to Blue Collar Distro I believe but never got it...I didn't realize until months later and it was too late to sort it out. So frustrating, I fucking need that record.

wasn't it only an initial run of 1000 too? 500 on blue and 500 on pink?
Nah I think there were like 600 on black and 300 each on blue, pink and clear or something like that. One way or another we need another fucking repress. I'd think THS' demographic would be all over that. Also they have yet to repress the first two records at all...

Agreed on all the Hold Steady records, plus Boys and Girls . . ., but that's already been discussed. Wasn't Emergency & I repressed a few years back? I know I have it, but is it just hard to find now?

Whatever other "Holy Grails" of mine have already been mentioned:

JEW - Clarity and Futures
The Format - Dog Problems
Modest Mouse - The Lonesome Crowded West
Death Cab for Cutie - Transatlanticism (I'm aware it's part of the new deluxe boxset, but I can't lay down that much money, although I would love to)
Yeah Emergency & I is impossible to find for under $200. Also they need to reissue the damn thing on CD too haha.

Oh seriously? Wow, I wasn't aware of that. Maybe a repressing, at least on CD, will happen with the new album coming out next year (which I am totally, unbelievably excited about).
Yeah man. I know it's gonna be the best fucking thing ever asdgfewiefipoewtghewr!!!!

Also I saw a couple of people post about wanting to buy TDAGARIM in here. I have it on white vinyl, the first pressing, PM me if you're interested and make a good offer and I might just be willing to part with it.

I didn't realize it was in such high demand, I picked up a copy at Amoeba a few months back for less than $20. I'm definitely going to look into selling or trading it.
What the CD or the vinyl?

Vinyl. I'm dumb though, it's been over a year since I picked it up.
Oh shit, makes more sense. Damn lucky! I really want it on vinyl haha
