Notes

Issued in a thick gatefold cardboard sleeve with a textured and grainy finish quite similar to the Endtroducing... (20th Anniversary Endtrospective Edition) box set released in 2016, the inner sleeves are also having the same aspect of quality. The records are pressed on a solid light blue 180g vinyl.

Endtroducing... is written with three periods on inner sleeves, five on the labels and hype sticker, and nowhere on the sleeve. 1st cat# is on gatefold's spine, 2nd cat# is on hype sticker, and 3rd cat# is on labels. The barcode is a sticker affixed on back sleeve.

Essentially a repressing of the Endtroducing... remastered discs included in the 20th Anniversary Endtrospective Edition, which by all accounts was the definitive version of the album.

- Excellent pressing by Optimal. quiet and clean wax. I don't think it is mentioned specifically but these discs are a solid 180g
- If you're going to cut electronic/IDM/trip-hop for vinyl, you absolutely want Barry Grint cutting the lacquers
- Despite some speculation about the Universal fire, according to Josh himself the original sources were not lost. This cut is from the original masters (unlike the 2011 Back To Black which uses secondary digital)
- It's cut lower than the original 96 pressing (Rick Essig cut), and about equal to the 2002. But there is no apparent surface noise here so the volume isn't a negative factor for this release. But the choice was made here for good reason...
- The sequencing here is clutch and the defining aspect of this release. By moving Changeling to A4 and ending Side A with Transmission 1, each side except Side C ends with a Transmission. Previously Transmission 1 was in the middle of Side B and Transmission 2 started Side C. This is why the album had to be cut at a lower volume, but the results are very rewarding. After hearing this it's hard to go back to an older version. The transitions between discs are perfect and add to the atmosphere. The Transmissions into deadwax are eerie at the least. Love the attention to detail and how it elevates the listening experience.
- Jacket and sleeves are nothing new, but the materials are sturdy. Much better than the 2011, 2002 and 96. The Gatefold fills the space and there's no unnecessary gap in the middle.
- I'm not into colored wax, but I would have loved this one to match the two different greens of the labels

There's little room for improvement here. Unless RTI or Pallas comes along and represses this, I can't see a better version coming along for a while. It's possible we might see a "US" repress. Get this one or the complete 20th Anniversary Endtrospective Edition with confidence.

Get this while you can from Hmv, discounted down to £14.99 limited edition blue double vinyl in a gatefold sleeve with printed inner sleeves. Amazing sound quality. Thanks HMV. Thanks Dj Shadow.

Are there perhaps two versions of this? Mine (bought from HMV in the UK) IS gatefold. I added it my collection on the day it was released (15th June) and was surprised to see that were plenty already for sale on here from mainland Europe.

Not sure where they pulled their info from, but this neither gatefold nor 180 gram.

Does anyone know how many copies were pressed in total? 1000 copies exclusively for hmv but this version seems to be widely available in different record stores.

Picked my copy up from the HMV exclusive vinyl week this morning (1000 copies available exclusively at hmv in the UK).

Just played it all through, gorgeous pressing. Came out clean, played like an audiophile special. You’ll be very happy with this if you have a nice set up - but can’t comment for the audiophiles with £5k+ set ups!
