So for anyone interested, I received my twin LP copy of 3 feet high and rising. Compared to the single vinyl release from 1989, it is so much better. It is recorded at a much higher volume, and does not have any crappy, distortion noise when you turn the volume up on it. Time to sell off my "OG" copy in favour of my newer copy.

I am thinking of buying the recently released 2 lp version. I have the uk 1989 release on vinyl and it is terrible. Recorded at a low volume and when you turn the volume up, it distorts. The only way to rectify this is to drop the bass out, and then it sounds tinny. Anyone asking premium price for an OG release of this on vinyl is not doing anyone any favours if they are the same press as mine. I have the cd and it sounds great. Does anyone know if the reissues or represses have fix this issue on the vinyl versions ?

This is classic! The only gripe I have is the mixing of this LP, and how this was not originally spread out on 2 LP's. The grooves are very tight, hence you loose dynamic range for the breadth of this Album. very low volume, and due to that, when you try to compensate by turning it up, you get alot of hiss. I have a double LP reissue, and it does not seem to rectify this (was it mastered from the original LP?) would like to see a proper reissue on 2LP's with a better mix. The 1989 CD suffers from the same low dynamic range too. So, maybe it's in the master mix?
