Played from start to finish without any issues. The sound on this pressing is sublime

Anyone knows how “limited” is it and how does it compare (sound quality wise) to “unlimited” 2015 edition?

Lovely sounding pressing - the sticker on mine was written in german. Unfortunately no booklet was included - must be a rare error.

Funny fail in the booklet for this issue - pictures with cyclists from a TV report (black and white pictures) are covered with pixels when enlarged.

Out of the new 2020 colored vinyl re-issues I've listened through Trans Europe Express, The Man-Machine, Techno Pop/Electric Cafe, Computer World and this one so far. TEE, Man-Machine and Techno Pop were excellent in every respect - very clear and "full" sounding, few if any pops and clicks. Quality pressings. I can't seem to recall if there was any surface noise but I'm assuming not or at least not much since I would have remembered about it. Computer World was a little tame for lack of a better word, and lacked low-end. It also had some annoying pops and some crackling, but nothing terribly annoying. Tour De France Soundtracks does however disappoint - it is not very clear sounding like the others but rather a bit muddy, and furthermore it has way too much of pops and clicks to be enjoyable, and it also has occasional stretches of swoosh sound as it rotates (no-fill problem?). While I probably won't bother about cleaning the others, this one will definitely end up on my cleaning machine before I put it on next time. Hopefully the remaining three albums don't suffer from this problem, although I've heard there's been some issues with The Mix. We shall see...

I have two copies here – directly from Kling Klang (both with German Spezial Edition Farbiges Vinyl sticker) – and in both cases does the first record (blue vinyl) crackle like crazy. Straight out of shrink-wrap and cleaned, on decent set up. Disk 2 (the red one) also crackles but is just about fine in comparison. I already received a replacement copy but both copies seem to be bad pressings to cause such an insane amount of crackles on new vinyl. This must be a half-hearted production error. Apart from the crackles does Tour De France sound great though. If only I could get a decent copy. Maybe I had bad luck to receive two copies from a bad batch... While other albums of this coloured edition are fine – I also have issues with the German The Mix btw (white 2020 copy) where it jumps at the exact same place towards the end of Die Roboter (and I am not alone apparently https://www.discogs.com/Kraftwerk-The-Mix/release/16043394 ). Sigh.

The 2020 vinyl release comes in only one version. There is no 2020 German version, ie. no version with "Seite" instead of "Side". Some copies come with the "Special Edition Coloured Vinyl" sticker and others have the "Spezial Edition Farbiges Vinyl" variant, but everything else is the same on all copies. This is inconsistent with the 2020 vinyl of "Radio-Activity"/"Radio-Aktivität", which comes in English and German versions ("Side" and "Seite", and variant songtitles) even though, as with "Tour de France", there's only one (bilingual) version of the album. Another inconsistency is that the inner sleeves are printed with the German "Disk" instead of the English "Disc".

Unlike the other seven albums of "Der Katalog", the Kling Klang Digital Master versions of "Tour de France" (2009 and 2020) come with a booklet that is almost identical to the 2003 original. This is very lazy, especially given that the ASO agency screengrabs from TdF races are low-resolution. This aesthetic looks passable when the booklet is CD size. When inflated to 12" format the screengrabs look cheap. A new, rethought booklet as per the other seven albums would have added value to the remaster.

The segues between various tracks on this album result in some odd distribution of music over four sides of vinyl. Side 1 lasts more than twice as long as side 2.

Side 1: 19:05
Side 2: 8:10
Side 3: 13:41
Side 4: 15:09

If I open the Cd on my Pc a datatrack 13 is displayed with a length of 15:28.
Is this the Copy Protection? Because I can't play it on my Pc.
