In responce to the comment below regarding the mastering of this issue. We oversaw the repackaging and remastering of this LP on behalf of Kaleidoscope Sounds. After reading these dissapointing comments we would like to set the record straight.

Remastering was done by one of the most respected underground artists on the scene Spaceman 3, if you would read the sleeve notes, 3 years was spent tracking down the master tapes. If you look on the bands facebook page you will see the singer and drummer holding some of the original master tapes from the album. Its very upsetting to hear that a bootleg copy from 20 years ago is considered sonically superior to this 1st official re-issue of the lp which has been sourced unequivocally from the master tapes, from that we have improved sonic imperfections from the master. For example in the track 'Dive into yesterday' the original had a dip in the music at the 1.36 mark, under the bands direct guidance Pete Kember has doctered the slight dip [that has niggled the band for 50 years] to sonically enhance the listeners experience. We hope this clears up any dispute regarding the mastering of this masterpiece.

This official release is endorsed by the band, and that's great… but sorry, my 2002 vinyl bootleg copy sounds punchier and clearer ! This official reissue sounds flat and thin, so I really doubt it has been mastered from the original tapes…

I agree with cadjal712 : the pressing doesn't sound too 'hot'... although the vinyl is nice and silent , on my copy , anyway.
Has this something to do with remastering or the cutting stage or the quality of the copy master ?
The 5 Hours Back pressing is very slightly 'sharper' or clearer , compared to this issue.
I've never heard an original stereo pressing.
The only issue I've heard of it on cd is the Repertoire CD re-issue from circa 2006 , which , although not an accurate way to compare against re-issue vinyl , seems sonically clearer as well.
How about an official re-press of the Mono mix ? (does anyone know for sure if its a dedicated mix or a 'fold-down' ?)... there doesn't seem to have been one yet : just the bootleg. I heard an original Mono a few times many years ago and it had a bit more 'bite' to it , to my ears , anyway.

I've never heard an original mono, but this pressing sounds wonderful.

Vinyl reissue pressing is sourced from a digital master, not directly from the tape. Pressing is not cut very hot and does not sound nearly as good or dynamic as an original Fontana or 5 Hours Back reissue pressing

One information:
By my copy, there was no download code, not as a card nor placed on inner sleeve !
How about that ?
Not that I miss it that much, I give it usually as a gift away.

Very nice item. The vinyl is silent and flat. Comes in luxurious gatefold sleeve with nice extras. I never would have guessed I would have this wonderful record signed one day.

Quite nicely done and the sound isn;t too bad either BUT, and it is a BIG but, this is NOT Mono whatever the label may claim. (It is not even close to Mono...)

I bought this reissue sealed, and upon playing it found two very serious scratch marks on the b-side.

I took it back to my shop and got a replacement, and guess what?

There is another scratch on the b-side!

The scratch this time is on B1, and it is less of a problem than with my first copy (which was also B1 and more prominently with B5).

I will not be returning this copy as I am reasonably happy (given the ticks that occur through the end of B1), but has anyone else has similar problems with this issue?

I think it is definitley something that Sunbeam should be made aware of.
