Rather confusing as to why Kate decided to not use the same label as on the remastered vinyl, in a similar fashion to the other CDs. Also that the casing wasn't reformatted to the digipak style used throughout the Part I boxset. As much as I love the sound of this remastering campaign, continuity and consistency aren't great at all.

Great sounding pressing, apart from Kates voice, that sound a bit sharp in places. Removing Rolf Harris' part in a an understandable decision. Who wants a complete asshole on its album.

My copy was very noisy and had distortion in places. It was so bad I gave it away. I wonder how the remaster is?

I have the original 0946 3 43960 1 1, 343 960 1, KBALP01 pressing and it was indeed very bad but after a ultra sonic cleaning it came out beautifull in every way! I don't think it's normal to clean a new record but somehow in the production process something must have gone wrong. Anyway, once this record is cleaned, it sounds brilliant in any way! Anyone else expierenced this? Please let me know, kind regards from Schiedam

The original 2005 vinyl pressing was one of the worst I've ever owned or heard: soft, muffled, fluffy bass, crackle and non-fill throughout, distortion on peaks, heavy distortion at the end of each side. Really a shocking mastering job and dire pressing. I wonder if this reissue is any better?

OK, so the vinyl is quiet and the packaging (gatefold, booklet and sleeves) is fine, ...first rate in fact, but the remaster does sound different and I am not sure if it is better?!? Just different and not as comfortable to the ear. I'll need to do more listening and less comparing, as THAT detracts from the great music!

nice clean pressing
i'd say it's missing instrument seperation, punch and some of the sizzle
of the original but for the money a great buy and a no-brainer...get it

Disappointingly quiet pressing, also lacking in top end. Damn, I was so optimistic, too.
