two different pressings of this record -- check out Cosmos Records instagram post about it from way back. One version is slower and louder on side A, fast on side B. The other is the reverse, a slower and clearer/louder B Side. 45 version of the title ... See full review

sounds great to my ears -- and it's probably the best we'll get because i'm pretty sure Mad About had access to the original metal stampers. It is a bit lacking in the low end as a recording though. I don't think Mad About could do anything about it. ... See full review

This will be getting a reissue from Mad About Records -- who recently just put out Imani - Out of The Blue. On the obi strip for that record it mentions Mystic Beauty as a forthcoming release. Praise be!

sounds absolutely brilliant. heavy weight, totally silent/no background noise. glad we're all able to benefit now that the box set drama is over.

Distribution shortchanged a vendor I tried to order this boxset through 2 months ago. Sad rollout indeed.

this is a criminally underrated record, especially for the relative price!

just received my copy--sounds stunning. nice insert too with a brief message from the artist. highly recommended!
posted a comment on Ayelan* - Southern California Style. over 2 years ago
i think you're most likely correct. doesn't sound like a very high budget affair--and so my expectations of the sound quality adjusted. all kinds of 80s bedroom electronic soul sounds about this quality. part of the genre i reckon.

I just received my copy today--I can't really answer your question because I have not heard an original, nor have I heard the Diggersdigest version. I have a few diggersdigest releases and they are all very top quality, so you most likely won't go wrong ... See full review

Numero Group reissued this on a replica 45 in a small batch for their pop-up shops this past month. Assume they won't repress, I think it was intended to be a locals-only affair.
posted a comment on Rupture (2) - Israel Suite / Dominante En Bleu. over 2 years ago
From diggerdigests recent instagram post, it seems the producer Krief swindled him and broke the contract they had de facto by signing another one with Guerssen. So it doesn't seem like they're really at fault here, but I suppose maybe they should have ... See full review

that seems to contradict what the last person who reissued this record, Diggersdigest, is saying. Would like to hear from the label themselves on this one.
posted a comment on Rupture (2) - Israel Suite / Dominante En Bleu. over 2 years ago
thank you for this info--hoping they respond to clear this up. Either they're lying or somehow Krief signed another licensing contract....

posted a comment on Jorge Ben - Big Ben. over 3 years ago
this repress appears to have some silly mistakes-- on the label Jorge Ben is spelled with 2 n's, thus it reads "Jorge Benn"
The deadwax is different from the original, and the side 1 label also omits the title of the 5th song, though the song is present ... See full review

i listened to another reissue of it (from the searching for soul comp) and it appeared there. I think it comes straight from the OG
posted a comment on Dee Edwards - (I Can) Deal With That. over 3 years ago
as I re-listen to the original, perhaps it is just part of the recording/master

anyone have issues with the non-strings version--a kind of crackling/distortion in the higher frequencies, especially in the first 30 seconds of the song?

posted a comment on Donald Byrd - A New Perspective. over 4 years ago
there appears to be copies of this album that have every mark of an original blue note pressing minus "the ear" in the deadwax. most likely a result of left over stock labels/sleeves that were used up in the early days of Liberty taking over Blue Note. ... See full review
