Very low volume levels and a wobbly disc despite being 180gm. Bass is also somewhat lacking throughout.

Great disc! The sound and the dynamics is great for me on my Bose 2000XL speakers and Yamaha A-760 amplifier. It is my favorite disc :)

I've got this one and Voyager (which I didn't opened yet)

edit : 30th november 2014,comment only for TB3,Voyager still not listened

have made an A/B comparision with original CD vs LP,
both listened with same amp (sony ta-f4a) and same headphones (akg K242)

ALL THE TRACKS ARE IN STEREO AND SOUNDS GREAT at least on my record

detailed infos :

I haven't spotted any glitch or errors,
the sound on the LP have good dynamics (for me),
it is the same mix as the CD but EQ'd for vinyl,
there is way more bass on the LP,which is really good,even when volume is lost a bit
which is not a problem,just put your amp volume higher
(who said : "they'll put the volume higher,that's what an amp is made for!!" ?)

[scientific minute : when pressing more than 40min on a single vinyl you have to make choices,
either to have a big volume but less dynamics to avoid needle dropping
(this generally cause a VERY flat sound : found on cheap pressings for various artists compilations) ,
or less volume but more dynamics,solution chosen here]

Far Above The Clouds is the only track to have distortion because it is full of high frequencies
which are usually NOT put at the end of a vinyl side,but this album wasn't made for vinyl originally
so there's no one to blame,the volume has already been lowered to avoid problems
on the other tracks and to fit the full album on 1LP.

the only four reasons I can imagine for withdrawing this pressing are :

-they considered there was too much bass

-someone at the pressing plant f*cked up the plates
(remember Lily Allen's 2nd album UK pressing mess with grooves crossing?)
so they had to made new ones

-Warner pressed what it wanted to sell and don't really bother pressing more than 100/1000?

-Mike Oldfield called Warner's CEO to stop the process until they settled an agreement on the royalties

since it is a digital master (40 to 48Khz/16bit) there's no more room for a better sound
(except a 2LP pressing or a complete remix from the multitrack tapes ;
here they put EQ on the original stereo digital master)

(see :

and

hope that helps some of you :-)

if you like the record and manage to find one,just don't think twice

Voyager CDvsLP A/B comparision coming soon

This pressing was technically the very first vinyl edition of 'Tubular Bells III'. Release date was mid-October 2014 and some copies reached some outlets. However, those copies were withdrawn due to an error in the pressing and release date was pushed to January 2015. Apparently, these first vinyls were pressed in Mono by mistake. Same happened, at least, with 'Voyager' LP.
