      What a great box set! I forgot that this included Saskadelphia as well!

      *** A word of warning! *** The circle stickers holding the discs in the sleeves are tough to take off. From my experience they will either leave adhesive on the sleeve, or worse rip or tear the sleeve. Might be bust to just leave them on and cut a slit.

        Damn, this is a great album and pressing. Highly recommended.

          I first heard ROAD APPLES back in '91, "Little Bones" and "Fiddler's Green" stood out to me back then as great songs, but I went decades without hearing the album again. Picked up a copy on clearance recently, and was surprised how good it sounds. "The Luxury", "Long Time Running", and "Three Pistols" are also great songs. This is the 2021 reissue, pressed on 180g red virgin vinyl, according to the hype sticker. It's a good pressing, with lots of crunch to the guitars, plenty of bass, and a lively, punchy sound overall. My copy does have some faint crackles noticeable in the quiet spots and between tracks, but it's such a good sounding record it doesn't bother me at all.

            Pressing is crackly as hell even after deep cleaning. When the music is loud you can’t hear it, but when volume drops… ugh.

                Such an under rated band, thanks MOV for keeping them out there! RIP Gord.

                  This is an excellent sounding pressing. Clean and dynamic! Unfortunately I don't have any other pressings to compare this to but I can definitely recommend this one.

                    This is the pressing to have. The MOV pressing sounds like the cd, and has a blurry cover, as if the cd art was blown up. The Musicvaultz pressing uses the same stampers as the MOV pressing, but the cover looks better.
                    This is a completely different mastering job, it’s still from a digital source but there’s far less compression applied. The bass is a little deeper, the cymbal crashes decay slower, the electric guitars are crunchier, and some of Gords more indecipherable lyrics are more easily understood. The only downside is that you have to turn it up a little louder due to less use of compression, which will also amplify any pops or clicks, and the background surface noise. If you have a system with enough power, and a decent table and cartridge, then this is the version you want.

                      It's a good set, but I waited until prices dropped. I paid about $140 CDN for mine.

                      I had to return my first copy because a dimple in the vinyl of the first record opened the main event with two loud pops. Another of the discs was warped, and the one with the extras was off-centre. Got a replacement set that sounded much better, although the extras one was still a bit wobbly. Good enough, I guess...

                      The remaster of Road Apples is glorious. I have the original CD, as well as the 2013 MOV LP. The MOV is a good pressing, but the sonics on this remaster are next-level. Really deep and resonant, with good detail. Hooray!

                      The next best record is the live one, and it sounds fantastic as well. I saw the Hip several times in the early '90s in Kingston and Ottawa, and although those were a great live experience, the Roxy record provides a sound quality I never heard in bars, clubs, and outdoor shows. Gord gets a little goofy at times, but the show has muscle and energy.

                      The Saskadelphia EP is good for what it is, which is a rescue job on session leftovers with one live track. You can see why some of the songs, like "Ouch" were left off. It's good, but at the time it might have seemed out-of-place on the album.

                      The disc of extras is OK. Not essential, but fun for fans. The sound quality can be a little more rough.

                      I haven't checked out the digital extras yet. Someday, I guess.

                      Fun fact: The booklet includes a blurb from my 1991 review of the album from The Queen's Journal. Abut alas! The band didn't give me a free copy.

                        Amazing, perfectly quiet pressing. Sounds wayyyy better than the 2021 RED colour release.
