Japan & related, Ultravox, Depeche Mode, New Order & Roger Taylor completist. Not interested in collecting every single pressing but certainly interested in collecting all tracks & versions of tracks by these artists.

Enjoying the mixes but quite a lot of ingrained dirt & fluff in the record which a cursory clean doesn't get rid of. Accordingly have jumps in a number of places and a well fluffed up stylus.

Great design and packaging but despite cleaning in my Okki Nokki there are still too many clicks as the shiny fragments in the vinyl breach the surface.

I really don't understand why it is so hard to get this album sounding 'right' on vinyl. Whilst this pressing is better than the recent Repertoire releases, it is still lacking: it's noisy, the percussion lacks emphasis and it is muddled. The first ... Vollständige Rezension ansehen

No idea where it was pressed but the quality is good with very little surface noise.

From personal knowledge, 500 copies of this version with the 7" single were produced. I have entered this a number of times in the release 'Notes' section but one user keeps on removing my reference to this so am including here.

Unfortunately misses what, for me, is their best track, 'Sick Man Blues' (b-side of 'Funky Gibbon').

Actually I will amend that - can anyone else hear two loud clunks around 19 seconds in 'The Dancer'? They sound - to me - like the electronic kick noise from the first 15 seconds or so has not been faded out properly.

Broadly agree with the comments on the remastering: in general it is excellent & makes a refreshing change to not have something clipped & limited to within an inch of it life. There are a few instances where the snare is difficult to pick out in the ... Vollständige Rezension ansehen

Agreed, couldn't be bothered either and would spoil the flow. This pressing is great btw.....nice an quiet. Would like to do a b2b with the half speed just to hear difference if any. Cheers

Actually they are 1/2 speed mastered: it simply doesn't say so on the cover.

Clicky as hell all the way through side A even after cleaning and quiet as mentioned making the pops even more obvious.

That's interesting & hadn't thought of that but the probability is that the longer version was almost certainly withdrawn by the band/label for 'artistic' reasons.

Correct. It is the 2009 remaster , as are all the Chrysalis UV CD reissues from November 2017 to April 2018.

In most instances it should be a case of just use the existing masters. n If they were good enough then, they are probably good enough now.

Rest assured it is pretty bloody awful. Curiously it is better than the blue vinyl version in places & worse in others.

It didn't: Rage In Eden is the one from this series which finished with Quartet as the rights were bought back by the newly incorporated Chrysalis.
