Launched From Detroit.

The uncredited pressing plant is derived from this July 2021 forum discussion.
NSC in runouts is circled. Track durations and bpm are not provided on the record.
Track A1 : 137 bpm - Track A2 : 146 bpm - Track B : 133 bpm.

Two versions of this Archer pressing exist, depending the plant which was used by the company. A first one is reading a circa 70 mm stamped ring on the labels, also called ‘large bush’ type (Lened plant), a second one an other kind of rings also called ‘muffin’ type with two stamped rings (SMT plant).

A third similar version which is reading a different pressing ring specification than Archer ones, also exist.

    Will they ever do a repress of this? I don't play techno myself but this is a seminal classic that everyone that appreciate electronic music should have in his collection. But €100 is a bit steep...

      Being a late adopter on this by at least a couple of years; I must add that it's one of my favourites.

        On my Archer pressing with the 70mm ring, the sound drops out a couple of times briefly (less than a second) towards the end of 'Final Frontier'. Is this the same on all copies of this pressing?

        My other copy with the 32mm 'muffin type' ring does not do this.

              The main reason this has never been repressed is that Mike Banks told a story that he had lost the master plates to this release........

                I completely understand this release is more than just the iconic 'The Final Frontier' A side however if it's that track you're after it can be found on vinyl on the compilation (link below) on Disc 1 (side B) for significantly less that the current market rates for UR003

                ....and yes, it's a nice loud pressing....

                  I have this release but I really hope it will be repressed shortly because people should not pay this ridiculous prices to own a piece of music history

                    So this is actually from 1991 which makes sense as it's 003... Wow, this means that this release is even more of a game-changer! The Final Frontier is obviously the classic here but Base Camp Alpha 808 is a tough as nails immense bass rumbler on the Electro tip...
                    • I was given a cassette with these tracks on it and more by my producer back in 91, his friend had just finished recording them and he wanted to know what I thought of it. I biked around NYC listening to it, and all I thought was "WOW, this is very interesting music!!" No I don't have the cassette anymore, it got lost in the past, but finding this brings back great memories! It made the pop music I was making sound so lame, I am so glad I ditched that.
