*** Also, in regards to the transition, some songs had to be rerecorded since the masters were deteriorating. Such was the case for ''The Little Desert'' whose subsequent rereleases used alternate versions of Blackfish Creek and Empty Trees and Buildings. If you want to listen to the original versions, you'll have to track down the original vinyl, which fall into the indie rule of having small releases, so uh... Good luck!



*** Thankfully averted with their rarest releases. The soundtrack to "Hammers Over The Anvil" (simply titled "Hammers") and '''especially''' "Live At The Butchers Picnic" (which is rumoured to only a release of '''50 copies''') were digitally rereleased on bandcamp. Although you can try and track down the physical releases, you'll need the patience of a saint just waiting for a copy to turn up...
* The Australian Indie Rock band "Winterbourne" have currently released 2 EPs that can be found without too much hassle. What you might not know is that before them, they were a street band whose first real release was a self released EP called "Hometown" that is extremely difficult to get a hold of now. A few songs on it were included for the ''All But The Sun'' EP, but other tracks like "Hometown" and "Smiling" are very difficult to listen to now.

*** ** Supposedly, according to the David Bridie fansite [[http://www.followthegeography.com/ndw_disco.html Follow The Geography]], there was a pre-release version of ''Tabaran'' on cassette that was exclusively released in Papua New Guinea that has alternate track listings, alternate song titles and a bonus track that hasn't been rereleased on any other releases. Good luck ever finding a copy though, as it's incredibly rare.

* The last album released by Australian Indie Rock band "Winterbourne" have currently ''Goanna'' appropriately called ''Spirit Returns'' [[note]] Sprit Returns is (probably) a CallBack to Goanna's first album Spirit Of Place [[/note]] was released 2 EPs waaaaay after their previous releases (''Sprit Returns'' came out in 1998 and their previous album ''Oceania'' came out in ''1985'') due to the fact that can be found without too much hassle. What you might not know is ''Goanna'' had disbanded due to Shane Howard's disillusionment and subsequent focusing on a solo career that before them, they were a street band whose first real release was a self released EP called "Hometown" that is extremely difficult eventually eclipsed his involvement with ''Goanna''. As such, their brief reunion to get record one last album didn't garner a hold lot of now. A few songs on it were included for attention then and the ''All But The Sun'' EP, but other tracks like "Hometown" and "Smiling" are very difficult to listen to now.album has not been rereleased since. Consequently, the album is ''incredibly'' rare, with used copies easily commanding $100+!

* Want to hear the original version of the Music/RedHousePainters cover of the classic Music/{{Yes}} hit "Long Distance Runaround"? It's on the long out of print double vinyl of ''Ocean Beach''. Though the song would later appear on ''Songs For Blue Guitar'', many people who have heard the original claim it to be one of the best songs by the band. The later re-recording of it? Many consider it to not be one of Kozelek's best covers. The vinyl can be obtained, but it is extremely difficult, and '''extremely''' expensive, usually going for 150+ dollars.
** Though the Vinyl Copy of ''Ocean Beach'' is the rarest of all the vinyl releases of any Mark Kozelek-related projects, it is far from the only one affected by the trope. Nearly every single one of the albums released by the singer-songwriter are insanely expensive on vinyl and are usually found in bad condition regardless. The only exception is ''Songs For A Blue Guitar'' which got reissued on Vinyl a couple of years ago. Any album still on it's initial pressing seems to dodge this trope until it enters it's second pressing. This wouldn't be such a frustration if it weren't for the fact that the vinyl versions of these albums have different mixing, meaning a different listening experience.

* Speaking of Mark Kozelek, ''nearly every single solo release'' by the guy tends to fall into this trope. Seriously, check out his Discogs page [[https://www.discogs.com/artist/264250-Mark-Kozelek and see how many of his release aren't limited editions!]]

* Albums made by indigenous artists invariably fall into this as they are typically self-released and have a very limited run due to the very small audience for them.
* Fan club exclusive music tends to fall into this trope, as it's usually made in limited quantitates and fans being fans, don't tend to want to give them up.

* Main/{{Coldplay}} 's debut EP ''Safety'' is one of the most legendary examples of this trope as only 500 copies were made and only about 50 of those made it into public circulation, making them '''extremely''' rare. Copies easily command up to $1,000. Although all songs that appeared on it were released in subsequent EP s (all of which are on iTunes), if you're going for OneHundredPercentCompletion, [[CrackIsCheaper well]]...
** Possibly ''even rarer'' than Safety is their promo cassette "Ode to Deodorant" which was made way back in 1997 and contains both the title track "Ode to Deodorant" and an alternate version of "Brothers and Sisters". Neither of these two songs have been rereleased, although are available for viewing on YouTube.
** Despite the fact its been rereleased a few times, "The Blue Room" remains rather difficult to track down (at a reasonable price anyways). You'll be hard-pressed finding one for less than $50.

* Nearly everything by Not Drowning, Waving that isn't called ''Circus'' tends to fall into this trope given the band wasn't exactly very marketable with their [[GenreBusting genre defying]] music.
** Some songs that were on the initial viny release were left out in the transition to CD. In particular is ''It Slowly Goes'', which was originally on the vinyl of ''Cold And The Crackle'' and has erroneously been left out of all subsequent rereleases. This also happened with some of the songs from ''Another Pond'' which seemed to get a new track listing with every rerelease until it was fixed with the 2007 rerelease... Until ''that'' version became this trope.

* For some reason, most of David Bridie's soundtracks have been rereleased on his bandcamp site ''except'' for his award winning soundtrack to the 1999 film "In a Savage Land". If you want to listen to it, you'll have to track down the out-of-print cd. Not only is it rare, but also pricey, typically going for $50+.

* Before NeutralMilkHotel, Jeff Mangum was part of a short-lived band called "Synthetic Flying Machine" whose only official release was a cassette called "Heaven is For Kids". The cassette is incredibly rare and remains a sought-after item for diehard Mangum fans.
