Just another collector of recorded sound.

Encoding my 33 1/3s, 45s, 78s and optical media audio discs as ALAC. My computer room is starting to smell like a used music shop. In a good way.

Dank! Great inherent volume and a wonderful pressing, no problems with mine. So glad I picked this up!

Quite good! A more mature and flowing album than "La Papessa" I think. No real problems with my copy but my platter was dusty and looked scuffed but I gave it a good cleaning and it sounded great. Decent inherent volume.

Quite nice! No problems with my copy and it has a quieter inherent volume. In some ways the music reminds me of "Whoa Nelly!".

I liked it. No problems with my copy and it has a nice inherent volume. Just kinda wish her vocals were a bit more forward in the mix to make them stand out a bit more....

Solid. No problems with my copy and has a nice inherent volume. Reminds me a bit of what would become the Sherwood & Pinch releases.

No problems with my copy (or the sleeve) and has a good inherent volume. To my ears it sounds a little less harsh and bit more smooth than the 'o' compact disc... but yeah, quality all around.

Quite nice! No problems with my copy and it has a decent inherent volume. What I like the most about this remastered version is hearing the background layers better, doesn't quite sound as muddy as the CD.

Well mastered for vinyl and there were no problems with my copy. Loud inherent volume, so be careful.

A few small issues (pops and crackle, even after cleaning it twice) but overall no issues. I know it's called "The Songs" but some of the instrumentals to fill in the time to make a full 20min per side wouldn't have hurt it.

I think it sounds a bit more crisp and open than the CD. It has a good inherent volume and overall a quality pressing. My Side B, last track "Bulletproof" does have defect in it; I can't see it or feel it but I can certainly hear it. I love the artwork ... See full review

No problems with my copy but it does have kind of a quiet inherent volume (CD mastering perhaps). One day I'll see the movie... :)

Solid album!

Good inherent volume and well mastered for the format. Some small defects with the platter itself but maybe that was just my copy, nothing too serious, but there may be some small scratches. Give it a good cleaning.

But yeah, turn it up ... See full review

Quite a nice compilation features new and previously released songs (although may be new recordings). Nice inherent volume but they did need a quality cleaning before being heard to its fullest potential. I suspect it'll at least be played yearly in this ... See full review

Decent inherent volume and no real problems with the platters. LP 2 did seem to be a bit offset but didn't seem to affect playback. A great cross-section of music! If you're unsure if you like or dislike Country music, definitely give this a listen. You ... See full review

Loud inherent volume and a different track order than the CD.
It breathes so much more on vinyl than on CD. If you like the CD, you'll probably love the vinyl.

The "What Time Is Love -- Original Version" is well worth listening to. Seems more demo/live mixed to my ears... I quite like it.

I am curious as to why this release has "Last Train To Trancentral (Live From The Lost Continent)" vs. the "(LP Mix)"... it's not for space constraints, so probably territorial licensing issues. Still a killer album.

Is it House?
Is it Acid?
It you're looking for a very particular 1990s sound, this compilation will sort you out.
The velvet has been cleaned recently, feel free to touch it.
