I didn’t know about the change from Sandbag, that’s interesting. The webstore is very expensive, I don’t understand how (In the UK) the standard CD is £10 and the deluxe is £14. An extra £4 just for the 4 live tracks to be on the CD? I hear the packaging is exactly the same on both. The WM screenprints are also very expensive considering they are very small. Not related to vinyl I know, I’ll move on.
A vinyl related question for anyone: Was Babel 12″ ever released in a standard cardboard sleeve instead of gatefold? I have a gatefold copy, but I was thinking about how Sigh No More was released in both sleeve types and wondered if the same had ever unofficially happened with Babel.May 2, 2015 at 6:48 pm #3214
I have the EU pressing on COOP and the US pressing on Glassnote. Both are gatefold. I have never seen a standard single cover for Babel 12″. But you never know, someone might have one.
BTW Wilder Mind is gatefold as well, at least my V2 Records Benelux version is.May 6, 2015 at 9:37 pm #3276
Finally got my hands on a Wilder Mind vinyl. I had pre-ordered with the webstore but they weren’t going to send it out until 22 June when my other pre-order was ready!. Safe to say I cancelled with them and bought it in HMV (For £5 cheaper!). It’s a beautiful thing; I’m a sucker for a gatefold. It also plays really well.
I love the Wilder Mind album artwork so much, having a nice big version on my shelf is perfect.May 10, 2015 at 12:03 pm #3308
Benj, I think I sent you a facebook friend request. I’d like to get in touch with you for some help with Mumford collectibles.May 11, 2015 at 1:35 am #3317
Picked mine up today. Two things:
1) Any other Toronto fans who have not got a copy, Sonic Boom got their shipment finally and they have tons.
2) My labels are misprinted. I have the Believe label on the side where The Wolf plays, anyone else have this issue?May 21, 2015 at 11:41 am #3402
Re the Hopeless Wanderer vinyl problem, I finally (2 weeks later) received a reply to me complaint. I get a refund and to keep the single, they said it was a ‘mistake on their behalf’. Not really any consolation but hopefully they won’t do anything similar again.May 27, 2015 at 6:43 pm #3454
For anyone who missed out originally, the Babel 7″ singles collection is back in stock on the webstore:June 9, 2015 at 11:51 am #3579
Bought the US version of the Belive/Wolf RSD 7″ from eBay. The sides are mislabeled but I don’t mind as many seem to be. Are all of the US release mislabeled or just most of them?June 17, 2015 at 2:13 pm #3683
So excited for the Wilder Mind singles boxset to be released. On Monday we will have 1 brand new unheard Mumford & Sons song!!June 17, 2015 at 7:21 pm #3699
It looks like a fantastic boxset, but it is ridiculously expensive. I still haven’t ordered, but I haven’t seen any other places where they will sell it. So I might have to fork out the cash…June 17, 2015 at 7:24 pm #3700
I just checked the webstore. It looks like the release date has been pushed back to July 31. In the fact file at the top it says July 31, but the blurb text still mentions June 22. I’m confused.June 19, 2015 at 9:19 pm #3715
Got the email today – postponed until 31st July. Sad it’s been postponed, particularly to that date; I’ll be at the Aviemore stopover! We’ve had to wait since March already, how can it have taken so long?
We got a couple of new photos though.

Perhaps they didn’t want to be bothered with sending out the remaining 2 singles at a later date and decided to just sell it in one package, but then had to wait in order to record a live version for one of those 2 singles which pushed back release date?
Speculation, I know, and we don’t even know for sure if those 2 singles will be sent out with the rest of the box on July 31 or that they will follow even later.July 7, 2015 at 1:35 am #3830
Anybody know a working link to redeem the code (on the included insert in the Road to Red Rocks Special Edition) for the digital audio of the Road To Redrocks LP? The link they provide in the insert (www.mumfordandsons.com/vinyllive) is a bum link.July 25, 2015 at 10:27 pm #3957
I recently purchased the Babel Singles Collection set off Ebay. Some of my vinyls have an inscription on the front. Ex. My babel vinyl has christian@abbeyroad on it. Is this a special edition? Others say their vinyls dont have that.
