Japan/David Sylvian, Ultravox, Depeche Mode, New Order & Roger Taylor completist. Not interested in collecting every single pressing but certainly interested in collecting all tracks & versions of tracks by these artists.

No idea where it was pressed but the quality is good with very little surface noise.

From personal knowledge, 500 copies of this version with the 7" single were produced. I have entered this a number of times in the release 'Notes' section but one user keeps on removing my reference to this so am including here.

Unfortunately misses what, for me, is their best track, 'Sick Man Blues' (b-side of 'Funky Gibbon').

Actually I will amend that - can anyone else hear two loud clunks around 19 seconds in 'The Dancer'? They sound - to me - like the electronic kick noise from the first 15 seconds or so has not been faded out properly.

Broadly agree with the comments on the remastering: in general it is excellent & makes a refreshing change to not have something clipped & limited to within an inch of it life. There are a few instances where the snare is difficult to pick out in the ... See full review

The WAV downloads for this & Gentlemen Take Polaroids are 16/44.1.

Some people do get pre-release copies for a variety of reasons......

Agreed, couldn't be bothered either and would spoil the flow. This pressing is great btw.....nice an quiet. Would like to do a b2b with the half speed just to hear difference if any. Cheers


The difference is extremely marginal: ... See full review

Ah - it isn't at their 'shop' but is on their 'merch' link, hence the confusion, Cheers & ordered.

Some information on stockists would be helpful. Apart from this listing I can't find any information about this release.

A genuinely funny misprint! Would love a copy for the collection.

Please note that the downloads are, in fact, the 2003 remasters, not this version.

Actually they are 1/2 speed mastered: it simply doesn't say so on the cover.

Clicky as hell all the way through side A even after cleaning and quiet as mentioned making the pops even more obvious.

That's interesting & hadn't thought of that but the probability is that the longer version was almost certainly withdrawn by the band/label for 'artistic' reasons.

Probably more helpful to have raised this in the 'Edit Release' notes which will inform all the contributors.

Correct. It is the 2009 remaster , as are all the Chrysalis UV CD reissues from November 2017 to April 2018.

In most instances it should be a case of just use the existing masters. n If they were good enough then, they are probably good enough now.

Rest assured it is pretty bloody awful. Curiously it is better than the blue vinyl version in places & worse in others.

It didn't: Rage In Eden is the one from this series which finished with Quartet as the rights were bought back by the newly incorporated Chrysalis.
