Does anyone know if this pressing is on standard black vinyl or is it colored like the original white / green pressing?

fwiw, In response to Neoguri :
http://www.reddit.com/r/vinyl/comments/vvy1w/followup_stereolab_vinyl_master_sourcing/

"Just heard back from a friend who works at Rhino/Warner Special Markets, who are in charge of licensing the Stereolab masters to US companies. He believes that they would have sent hi-res 192/24 digital master files of the Stereolab albums to whomever cut the lacquer (Rhino did not do the vinyl mastering themselves).

Given that CD resolution is 44.1/16, it's clear that, although not mastered from analogue sources, the Stereolab vinyl releases will be of much higher resolution than their CD equivalents (higher numbers are better).

So, still worthwhile and not just a vinyl "cassette" of the CD.

Also, I'm in possession of the new vinyl releases and have a/b'd them against the CDs; the lacquer cutting and pressings sound fine, similar in EQ and general feel to the CD versions. But better on vinyl, of course.

(In addition, I was very impressed with the manufacture of the Mars Audiac gatefold sleeve. Rather than the ubiquitous printed and glued covers we see nowadays, this was constructed using the brown cardboard with pasted-over-slick process used in the 1950s and 1960s.)"

Good chance this is another release not endorsed by the band and mastered from retail CD, much like the other Stereolab and Aphex Twin pressings on the 1972 ‘label’. Very sad.

I have the Drag City release, but this is not the cover (my cover looks like the Duophonic release) -- does anyone know anything about this??

Stereolab deliver great records over and over again. Here with 'Dots and Loops' they deliver a slightly more electronic and experimental record than the previous and oft lauded 'Emperor Tomato Ketchup'. While 'Dots' may not be as immediate as 'Emperor' it is a far more interesting record IMHO. It blends stuttering electronics with smooth melodies and soft vocals that leave one with that 'drifting away on summertime clouds' feel. Stereolab suffered with the 2002 death of the wonderful Mary Hansen in a bike accident and the loss seemed to rob them of some creativity and is not until most recently that they seem to have fully recovered. Dots and Loops captures the band at their peak. Highly recommended.
