BUYERS BEWARE!

The 2012 and 2016 UK & Europe Reissues are being sold by unscrupulous sellers as the 2001 UK Original as they share the same catalogue and bar code numbers.

BEFORE BUYING, be sure to make the seller check the matrix numbers which are:

Matrix / Runout (Runout side A hand-etched): XLLP 138 A1 DAMONT MIKE'S ™ - THE EXCHANGE (S.D)
Matrix / Runout (Runout side B hand-etched): XLLP 138 B1 DAMONT MIKE'S ™ - THE EXCHANGE
Matrix / Runout (Runout side C hand-etched): XLLP 138 C-4 DAMONT MIKE'S ™ - THE EXCHANGE
Matrix / Runout (Runout side D hand-etched): XLLP 138 D1 DAMONT MIKE'S ™ - THE EXCHANGE (S.D)

IT IS HIGHLY UNLIKELY THAT THE SEALED VERSIONS AVAILABLE HERE ARE 2001 UK ORIGINALS!

According to the info here on Discogs, the reissues have a blue spine. On the original, the album artwork can be seen on the spine.

GOOD LUCK!

Everyone bitches about this version of the record. Id rather have this than the one with less samples. It doesn't have the intro bit to Radio, the voices are different in Frontier Psychiatrist, and it doesn't have the flutes in Extra Kinds. It's a new sound, and very unique all together, just deal with it and enjoy it for what it is.

Can someone confirm for me the following.
My copy has MODVL004 on the labels, under Modular. The Gatefold has MODVL004 too. The etchings are for example on side C: "XLLP 138 C1 DAMONT" then "MIKE'S - THE EXCHANGE (S.D)." then "M" then "MLRI-60004-C".
This suggests XLLP 138... but frontier psychiatrist sounds fine to me. Also the all etchings of "XLP 138" have been lightly scratched out. As has the lone "M" on this side. The scratching is the same depth as used for etching DAMONT, which features underneath the scratched out XXLP 138.
Thoughts? Is this MODVL004? Is it XLLP 138 in sheep's clothing? Is it something else?

Unfortunately, this is the "worst" possible edit of the album. Its the truncated version of Radio and most of the dialogue samples in Frontier Psychiatrist are re-done. It sounds pretty awful, especially if you're used to the original edit.

This obviously isn't down the The Avs', or even XL, but the sample clearance BS that comes with releasing an album like this.

I guess to get it even out there, something has to give.

Oddly, as far as I remember the UK single release used the original Wayne and Shuster samples.

Beware of this version of the vinyl. It has been edited to please the overlords, I mean, copyright people.

It is definitely not what the guys had envisioned when originally creating this beautiful and necessary work. I've listened to both Entroducing and this quite extensively, and I have to give it to The Avalanches for topping Entroducing. One could not exist without the other, but I feel the Avalanches pushed the limit on the amount and obscurity as opposed to Shadow. My favourite has changed quite a bit on this record, is no longer Frontier Psychiatrist. That is taken by "A Different Feeling" or "Stay Another Season."

This record takes me back to playing basketball on blacktop as well as kickball in the cul-de-sac during the summer, just as one reviewer envisioned on All-Music. A time where I was mixing it up and truly being a kid.

Again, the LP that you want is MODVL004. This is the Australian version with all samples intact, but sadly without the amazing song "Everyday."

The best album of 2000.
