I should be looking for a girlfriend, but instead I'm always on here - mostly looking for music containing the Yamaha CS-80 polyphonic synthesizer. Why that synth in particular? There's never been anything like it since and the sounds it makes are truly out of this world and make the album it's on 10 times better.
I also run a website: https://www.sneakerpimpslegacy.com/
And I occasionally upload to the Album Art Exchange under my tag: CURTIS8516.
If you want anything ripping and sending via email, message me and I shall try my best to see what I can do.

The first two albums are sadly taken from vinyl, specifically the 1996 VIL-ART bootleg CD's, but with further EQ's. When will these classic duo albums get a master-tape remaster?

The fact they've put off an official CD release of this in all these years (approaching 50), clearly shows what big-headed morons they both are, as they consider petty arguing and money over reissuing a masterpiece album, in which most fans have... See full review

They do have those problems, as I've just downloaded them and checked them against two other CD pressings - identical. My LP pressing also represents the same faults.

OK, finally, after all these years, I heard that the band are working with Tommy Boy to do something with Bloodsport - since you can still buy sealed CD's, my money is on a vinyl repress. Don't quote me, but I think it may finally be happening.

The whole cassette design is to mimic a classic EMI cassette from the 70's, even down to the Dolby logo (not actually encoded). My copy plays fine on both sides

Flash Gordon, Kate Bush and Giorgio Moroder did speed in a rocket-ship bound for Saturn. This was the result and it's bloody brilliant. Cheesy, camp space disco at its best, and, of course, it has the mighty Yamaha CS-80!

Would be nice to get a vinyl repress of this soon, just like the debut album did on RSD.

JUST a clear-up for people inquiring about BEST RECORD represses. AVOID. They constantly get a naff, used, original pressing and de-click, de-noise and compress it to the point of no return and then REPRESS that audio onto vinyl. I've experienced... See full review

More vinyl on vinyl represses. Terrible sound quality, sadly, if you want the best in fidelity, go original.

The BEST CD release of this is the Japanese pressing, it has no tape drops, seems to be mastered slightly more punchier and sounds fantastic. Then, the Passport CD, which has side 1 and 2 swapped to mirror the American/Canadian LP, but has some weird... See full review

Nothing new here really. The Budokan show is taken from a muffled tape and the Assemblage tracks and remixes are the same as the bonus tracks from 2004 (with the exception of the original, 1979 long version of Life In Tokyo). No new remastering, some... See full review

Utterly fantastic, as usual! Really nice package, sound quality is excellent, although I think Stephen went a bit trigger happy with the new stereo mixes but I'm glad the original is included. A truly remarkable package and series altogether.

Music On Vinyl need to re-release this, along with the other 3 Bearsville Records they've forgot!

Unsure of the source for this release, but it blows away any CD version. Truly immaculate release 10/10.
