I just spoke to Rick - this reissue is official, but it is from a vinyl rip as the original master plates couldn't be located. He had a sealed copy of the original vinyl and they used that as the source. In addition, he wasn't sure if Archer Record Pressing here in Detroit pressed the original version... and his attempts to find out if the metal plates were in their archive was unsuccessful as he couldn't get a hold of the staff of the plant.

He also said that it wasn't originally mastered by Ron Murphy (of NSC fame), but somewhere down in Texas that is no longer in business. His memory of it all was a bit fuzzy as this happened twenty-two years ago (1994).

Regardless, this is a great release. Obviously, the original should be more highly-prized, but the reissue can be an affordable alternative.

its not bad quality but definitely far from the original NSC cut...R.I.P. Ron Murphy. Just a similar example about Chez Damiers KMS049 repress I was compairing the original and repress and the same thing happend...repress is not from USA and i think this is happening with most of the reissue

Very poor job done on this repress. Either do it properly or don't do it at all.

Not sure what everyone is talking about. Sounds perfectly good to me.

The sound quality isn't great, but it's acceptable, especially given the cost of an original pressing. I actually have the original pressing and I'd love to offer a side-by-side comparison in the future if I can ever find that copy.
Regardless, I'm glad this incredible record was made available again. I support reissues.

This is the worst master I've encountered on vinyl thus far. I thought so much dynamic range compression was only possible digitally. Well, Rush Hour proves me wrong.

Sounds horrible, stay away and save up for the original from '94.

Heh. I can't believe no one has written a review on this monster of an album. Both mixes of "Nothing To Fear" demonstrate how deep Rick Wade can get. Very brooding track, with an eerie chorus and melody, and a heavy drum pattern. "I Do Believe" takes hints from the old-school KDJ albums. "I Can Feel It" kinda takes both from "Nothing To Fear" and "I Do Believe" to provide somethin' deep and funky.

Late Night Basix Vol. 1 is another great 2:00 AM-er for the dancer on the cooldown or the warmup.
