When this came out (late 1994), record stores had just started to no longer accept returns of bad copies of vinyl. I learned that this was due to new policies from the distributors, but it was an appalling rejection of decades of vinyl customers! (and exchanging flawed vinyl record copies had kept the quality up thru the 70s-80s). At that same time in '94, I had learned (via emusic/idm listserv) that the brown vinyl pressing of this release turned out very poppy/skippy with many fans, and maybe the black vinyl, too.
As a customer, I was annoyed, but wanting a copy, so I ended up opening 3 new (store-sealed) sets of this black vinyl pressing while in the store (gasp!) in order combine records to get a clean set of this 3xLP. At first this felt inappropriate, but I soon felt totally justified, as I could *see* divots in the vinyl across various copies of the records, and not in the same places/sides (and thus was in the pressings-- not a plate issue across every copy). I managed to assemble a clean set of the 3 records to buy for myself (no 'returns'!). I'd never been so ruthless before, but the new policy seemed outrageous at the time for a major-label release (plus 3xLP price!).
...Soon after, I became weary of what the industry (Sony/Philips, who owned CD patenting/licensing) was doing to actively suppress vinyl through the 90's, and watched as album of non-dj pressings between 95 and 99 became scarce or very small runs (see The Fall albums, mid 90s).

I recently dusted this off after a few years and I think the brown pressing gets a bad rap. There are some clicks and pops...and I get that it's a very quiet record...but they sort of add to the atmosphere and make it more of a living piece of art. My copy has no flaws that really take me out of it.

Every bad thing you've heard about the brown vinyl pressings is true. However, it is complete, and when you listen under the noise, it sounds true to the original version.

I'm seeking disc 1 (only) of the brown vinyl release if anyone has a spare copy to sell.

Very lucky to have a copy without background noise. This vinyl version sounds great and much better than CD I own too. And above tracklist is complete. Dreamlike and magnificent music.

I have a copy of this: cover is ~VG+, media haven't been tested yet. No stickers, all the rest is included. I would trade with 20th/21st century composers records (Nono, Ligeti, Grisey, etc.). If someone would be interested, let me know 😊
