  Mikee-R: Why don't you list it and see if anyone offers? If there are really only two copies out there then there are only going to be two people that would add it to Discogs....

If you think the Naked Eyes remaster sounds good then you're probably mistaken. It's a completely brickwalled master.

Yes they are - and again in a behugemous envelope. Good quality though the wife won't let me put it up anywhere.

Not BMG that did the RSD issue: Universal re-released it on the Virgin imprint.

Dusty Springfield - A Girl Called Dusty AloneWithStrangers

25 de julio de 2019
This edition is clearly mastered at 44.1khz according to a frequency review and so is likely to have used an existing 16 bit/44.1khz CD master which is disappointing: the record cannot sound any better than whatever CD is has been mastered from.

If anyone can confirm which CD master has been used as the basis of this release it would be helpful.

Err......it's a download?

Needing seven more words so I can post the reply.....

The Clash - Combat Rock AloneWithStrangers

Sorry - I must be mistaken and Universal (who own EMI which includes Virgin & also Heavenly Records) must be doing it purely because they are lovely guys with no desire to make a buck.

How very silly of me.

Err, every single one of them is a 'marketing gimmick'! Even those 'first time on vinyl since.....' reissues that you mention.

Agree - great pressing of a great production with very low noise. The whole package also feels very solid.

None of these releases are 'remastered' - Mute confirm if you check the other box entries if confirmation is required.

I'm not blaming you at all & I'm sure they did call it that on the website! Feels like profiteering to me.

How can 100 copies really be called a 'Test Pressing'? Test pressings, as we know, are limited to a few copies to test the stampers. This is surely a general white label release that is limited to 100 copies, isn't it?

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.

Karen O, Danger Mouse - Lux Prima as reviewed by AloneWithStrangers

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.

Sparks - No. 1 In Heaven as reviewed by AloneWithStrangers

21 de marzo de 2019
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 disc is listenable but the second disc is simply poor.

If only decent quality original pressings were a reasonable price.

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.

Visage - Visage as reviewed by AloneWithStrangers

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 track 'Visage' compared to previous versions but it's really a minor quibble: I wouldn't have noticed it if I wasn't actively listening to the mastering quality.

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


The difference is extremely marginal: the greatest difference is that the 33 1/3rpm version is slightly quieter.
