Underrated ‘punky reggae party’-era UK produced track originally released on the same label Echo & The Bunnymen. The dub version is especially good.

I bought the original test pressing of this (white label) last year at A1. Today (9 Feb) I bought this version with the sleeve from the ‘new releases’ bin at A1 for $20. ... The velour labels are pretty amazing! Surprised to see the prices being asked on ... See full review

'Storm' is such a sublime track. Can someone press as a 12" single please!

Played this tonight for the first time in a while. The First Choice re-work (‘edit’ doesn’t do it justice) is just so amazing. Goosebumps all over again when the chords kick in! 10/10

This appeared on Juno this week and sold out immediately. The only place I've seen it for sale so far. Is it going to be a limited release or more widely distributed? (They are playing Brooklyn on Saturday night!)

Truly great compilation ... it’s unofficial though, ie. a bootleg ... and Discogs seem to be clamping down on sales/listings for unofficial recordings.

Danny Krivit played this last night a party to celebrate Vince Aletti's book 'The Disco Files', it sounded amazing. I think the first time I've ever heard it played in a club! Killer UK-produced dance floor bomb with an exceptional mix from Rick Gianatos.

Bought this today, never heard of it before. Amazing three track EP from 1988. (But has a more early 80s feel - like Liaisons Dangereuses etc.) All three tracks are great but the standout for me is B1'Legacy'. The lyrics for 'Lack of Sense' set the song ... See full review

The b-side of the UK 12" - 'Psychedelic Rockers (Dubweiser)' - is a fantastic, under-the-radar, post-punk era dub. Can be purchased for next-to-nothing!

Just got my copy of the vinyl box set (via mail order from UK to USA), looks great, but mine was missing the 24 page book. Anyone else have this issue? If anyone from Mute is reading - how can I get a copy? Thanks.

Amazing edits. I'm not familiar with the (Japanese?) originals. Does anyone know the source of A1 and B1?

Dimitri is clearly a genius (we knew that from his Philly mixes already.) My copy of this just arrived. It is astonishing! All four mixes. ... That said I still think c. $30 inc. shipping (to USA) is too much for a new 12”! 🙂

I think he is suggesting that Kenny 'left' Detroit 'mentally', and not that he actually - physically - relocated to sunnier climes!

I understand all that - I've bought their previous records, and I've also bought this one too. But when we are getting to c. 25 Pounds+ (inc. shipping) for a single (new) 12", I think we've got to a point where vinyl is probably too expensive ...

Why does this record cost 20 Pounds (UK) for a new 12"? (Phonica have it listed at 19.99) Add in shipping and you are at 25-30 Pounds for one 12".

Rough Trade will reissue soon, and hopefully on vinyl for the first time!
posted a comment on Ahmed Fakroun - Nisyan. 2 months ago
The pressing is ok, but not amazing. There seems to be a bit of 'distortion' in the higher range, esp. on 'Nisyan'. The key issue on my copy though is that towards the end of the 'Nisyan' side the sound level drops down significantly ... it sounds like ... See full review

Does anyone know who was behind this series of bootleg compilations? Seriously great track selections - and the pressings (for unofficial compilations) are pretty good. A great series.

I have two copies of the OG 7” pressing with silk screen covers. Mine are in red and green sleeves, but I believe yellow sleeve copies exist too.

Worth it just for the unreleased ‘basic track’. But a great six track EP. Other groups should do this - ie. one record dedicated to multiple recordings/versions of the same track. 10/10.

My copy just arrived from Juno. This is worth the price just for the ‘Reprise Music & Vocal Only’ mix. But the whole thing is great. I agree £25 is a lot for a 12” ... but life is short! (And it is only the same money as buying two so-so disco edit 12”s, ... See full review

Wow, the 2018 prices are a surprise! ($150+!) But given how good this record is, and the fact that it was a French-only pressing, the prices actually make sense. This should have been a huge record everywhere. (Their first two singles on BiS are ... See full review

Sold out at Juno. Cheapest one here is $20, but + shipping to the US (where I live) would be c. $40 total! Way too much for a new edit! ... There was a Moton edit 12" of this years ago. What goes around!

There's a pressing flaw on sides C and D, in roughly the same spot on the Timmy Thomas and Ralph Macdonald tracks (just where Thomas's vocal comes in.) Sounds like the record is 'scratched' (but its a brand new record), which produces audible distortion. ... See full review
