Anybody know what the hold up is on a reissue? MOV is pretty good on repressing to meet demand. Is Sade anti vinyl or something, or other obstacles?

This sounds great for being "unofficial". I don't think it is the same as most unofficial stuff and probably came from a direct master tape source. A fave reggae record.

How is the sound quality on this Schema issue? Better than La Ragazza Fuoristrada?

There aren't many albums like this one, but if you dig Storm check out this rare album. Not quite as sparse as that song but the whole album is more consistent and very good: 惣領泰則* & Jim Rocks ‎– So Long America...

This is an amazing album. The whole album is somewhat like Rare Silk's best song 'Storm'. The vocal harmonies are sublime and just smother the album with such utter smoothness. On some of the songs the choruses remind me more of something off of the ... See full review

Check out his first album too if you dig this. It is equally good, if not endorsed by whoever is making this so popular, so also more affordable.

This is the greatest redeeming album by Szabo. He had so many gems in his early years including Spellbinder, Jazz Raga, The Sorcerer, Bacchanal, and his masterpiece Dreams. There are some other alright albums but lots of not too compelling elevator music ... See full review

This album is awesome. That perfect mix of elements coming out of France and Italy in the early 70s, especially on soundtracks. Some of my favorite records to spin. No need to mark 2 stars and put it in your want list too Itayan!

This is an excellent compilation with cool cover art too. It has what I consider two of their best songs 'Sunny Afternoon' and "I'm not like everybody Else'. It also has two of their funniest with 'dedicated Follower' and "Sit-in on my sofa". Highly ... See full review

Who changed these versions up? This used to be the standard TMB -26 and not the promo, so it shows I have this promo now. This messes up who all has this, as well as how it has sold. This needs to be changed back. Not this many people have the promo. I ... See full review

Vinyl me picks some great albums to reissue. It's too bad none of their stuff is all analogue processes, so it's all basically digital vinyl. I wish they teamed up with analogue productions for reissues.

This first official repressing is superb quality. I think they did this album justice both in sound and presentation on near 180gm before it was a thing and with an extra 12" and full gatefold. I happened to get mine from a guy who played a show with the ... See full review

I've heard they used the same stampers as the first presses on these TBM second presses. Same label ring and pressed at Toshiba, which copies after '77 aren't. Either way they are a nice nearly identical superb sounding option if you are not a 1st press ... See full review

I like the traditional natural setting cover better than this one for sure, but this press is superior probably than most of the JA pressing, having been made by United Artist. Also it's a known '78 analogue era pressing. Solid buy for a solid top reggae ... See full review

Killer comp. A great way to get all his best stuff on analogue LP for cheap. Otherwise it is spread over so many albums. Not sure why this doesn't get better ratings. The music is tops, and the pressing sounds great.

This sounds fantastic. Such a nice pressing. Although I usually stick to analogue originals this was well worth picking up. Probably better sound than the originals, especially worn or Jamaican press copies. MOV did great on this one. Grab it while you ... See full review

I had to buy this after loving Varech so much. I agree the inner sleeve must be sandpaper, because mine came super scratched up new. This is pressed super shallow. It had a tiny un-feelabe scratch that made huge pops. It still sounds really good though ... See full review

Its very unlikely this album was made all analogue in the first place. It was most likely produced, mastered.... digitally, being from 1996. Then there are only a few companies that do all analogue, and these aren't them.

There are definitely a few different unofficial presses floating around now. One on green vinyl maybe out of Europe and another printed in Japan. No point in really buying those unless you like digital cd to vinyl.

Add to collection means you already own it and have that specific album/press in your collection. Its a good way to keep track of what you own online.

FYI Doxy is a European company that isn't subject to any copyright laws on stuff 50+ years old. They don't seek or pay for any original files. That stuff is just made from Cds. They do seem to remaster them for vinyl even though source is CD.

I have this identical PRC pressing but it is not a misprint. It actually has March 10, 1978 stamped on the label. Maybe they corrected and reissued it.
