This was made around the time of the UK hardcore era. So the story goes, Kevin Saunderson was over and talking to Altern8 about how they made that UK hardcore sound, Altern8 said, "All yer need is a break-beat, some sub-bass and a synth line". Kev ... See full review

No UK stores stock AC Records anymore. There used to be a few, like Juno, Redeye. There was talk of a new distribution deal a couple of years ago, but nothing yet has materialised. You're best off buying direct from Klaus (glum-c), the labels owner.

Just a quick heads-up for all potential buyers of the rare red vinyl copy. There are a lot of, if not most vendors advertising their wares as the rare red vinyl pressing when in fact they have only got the black vinyl copy for sale. Please check with ... See full review

For me it was always about "Kanei". Easily sits alongside the top quality "Likemind" catalogue of releases. A beautiful piece of work. If you know Likemind you'll know what I'm talking about =)

Finally got round to getting this great album 21 years after its release! Love the way the graphics and design of the labels pay homage to Creed Taylor's legendary "CTI" label. Very fitting.

My order was £14.32 all in, I payed through Paypal and the shipping said £0.00. It said on the site to be patient because it ships from Cuba, but when it did arrive it had German postmarks. I guess I just got lucky with the p&p =)

The first time Elegia appeared on vinyl was in 1985 on the Low-life LP and it was a shortened/edited version that was 4:55 mins long. To the best of my knowledge, the only time time the full 17:30 mins version was released was on the CD, New Order - ... See full review

Some of the sellers are actually online record shops, Discogs is just another way for them to advertise and sell their wares. And you're right, this is a stunning body of work. =)

I'd imagine that it wasn't released on vinyl because if you listen to the track "The Oldest Lady", it is sampled from a record that has a lot of "scratchy" surface noise and people would have been returning their newly purchased mint vinyl copies in ... See full review

I've now had two of these discs and they both skip back on track 5 at 04:29. It;s such a dissapointment because this is an amazing body of work. I did rip it on to my computer and then burnt it on a CDr and it plays through a lot better than the ... See full review

I bought this LP after watching an excellent documentary about Gary and his family on BBC4 in 2016. This LP is briliant, it's Gary Numan at his darkest, industrial, melancholy best. it's the best LP I've bought in a long, long time.

Worth checking all of your early original UR pressings. To the naked eye they look like plain old black vinyl, but hold them up to the light and a lot of them are brown translucent vinyl. I'd imagine this is a pretty good way to spot the originals from ... See full review
