Another poor quality pressing from this label with scratches on 2 sides. This music and the composers deserve better!

A bit of research shows that these are the correct playing speeds and running times, so it certainly was an "interesting" decision to cut three of the sides at 45. Maybe it was possible because the original masters had a relatively restricted frequency range but that's speculation.

If I would speculate I would bet that arising from unexpecteds issues it was impossible to cut side B at 45 RPM, I think that this guess fits into the fact that the side B that was pressed came from the third test press made.

The run-out grooves say sides A, B and C play at 45 but there's no way the track lengths listed would fit at that speed, so I assume it's a mistake.

I'd like to know why it was cut at 45. Seems like a strange decision to me.

I'm also really curious about the decision to cut one side at 33rpm and the other three at 45rpm, I suspect they intended to cut everything at 45rpm but ran into some problems, thus the third testpress for side B.
I understand the benefits of cutting at 45rpm, but the truth is that at least the A side was mastered really low, I really doubt this was a good trade-off.

Would have been better on CD. This is my third and final release from this label I will buy. They've all been lousy pressings.

How's our pressings on this? Noticed it took three test pressings on side A alone.

My copy has odd distortions intermittently too... sigh. I guess that's a risk nowadays

There is some crack and pop on the first track, but it was a matter of seconds...the rest of it sounded fine to me. Another thing I noticed is the vinyl felt really thin and light compared to previous releases (and I have them all). No bother, though...it's still amazing music.

There's visible markings (circular) on A1 which causes pops and glitches. Side a/b seems lighter than c/d - it's a D&M cut which is why I'm interested as they usually don't end up with final versions like this.

My pressing is pretty lousy, the usual ticks and crackle especially on A1. Rather annoying given the delicate nature of the music.
