Probably not coincidentally, the downloads that come with the new vinyl edition are all high def except for Pole 3.

Something I don't see mentioned in the listings for the UK LP with a textured or 'relief' cover is that there was more than one kind of textured sleeve. My copy is textured like woodchip wallpaper but I remember there were also copies with a sort of ... See full review

That's great, thanks. The sleeve that was being debated was actually one that had the same picture as on the cover of the 1st Visage album. Not the same as the one you've posted. Your pics are good.

Hey. Thanks for replying. But now that all the sleeve images are disabled, it might not be clear which sleeve we were talking about. Is your sleeve like the one here - Fade To Grey? I see what you mean about it not being common. Although there are a lot ... See full review

No inserts. That's a bit sucky. But on the plus side, it's a very heavy pressing and the trifold sleeve is beautifully printed.

That's brilliant, thanks. Looks like the US edition is a different pressing after all.

We now have three listings for the green vinyl edition, but there's a strong chance these are all the same pressing and the only difference between them is the sticker on the back. If people could add runouts to the listings so that we can figure that ... See full review

How is the US version different? Does it have a different barcode sticker and/or different runouts? Did you by any chance buy it from Rough Trade in the US?

Surprisingly, the version of Candid (Theme From "Red Pressure Mounting") here seems to be a different recording to the version on the Ultra Vivid Scene - Blood And Thunder single.

The item was in both the UK and US official RSD lists (possibly more, those were the only ones I checked). The figure of 500 may have been for just one of those territories.

Has anyone else ever tried playing the 5.1 SACD layer? It doesn't seem to work. I get the same audio out all 5 speakers. I have to use the 5.1 mix on the DVD instead.

Only Swans - The Seer has Mute info on the packaging and was pressed in Europe. But there's no good reason that only one of them is marked here as a special edition.

Just noticed that too. The column on the left-hand side says there are 3 compilations, but only two appear. Their Corona EP is AWOL too. I wonder what's up.

No, the New Mix here is different, even though it's the same duration. I just played it again and compared it to the standard 7" and the radio edit that's on the CD single.

Sounds like an audience recording. Not all that impressive. But it's a bootleg, what did I expect?

Don't the different versions of She Moves... just fade at different points? What do you think is different about the mix?

Thanks for the replies. You've convinced me. Also, going by the images here, you can tell the difference between this rough cover and the 2004 reissue by the layout of the barcode stripes.

I'm not convinced this 'rough cover' is an original 1988 pressing. One or two other people have posted here to say that they bought it on day of release and their copy has a glossy sleeve and it's the same with me. The 2004 reissue, on the other hand, ... See full review

Same here. Bought on day of release - glossy cover. The 2004 reissue has a rough cover. I think someone has mistaken the reissue for an original.

They look printed or stamped to me too. I have two of the 'signed' item and the differences between the signatures are minimal, the sort of differences you might expect from stamping.

Interesting. Do you know if the original German 45 of I Want More was the same as the album version? The 45 lists a duration of 3:18 vs. the album's 3:29. So, it could be an edit, or it might not. I checked my UK 45 and it has the album versions of BOTH ... See full review
