Does anyone know if the 1989 CD's suffer from disc-rot/bronzing the same way European CD's also manufactured by PDO tend to?

Martyn Ware is credited with Linn Drum programming on this LP. Would be interested in a source for your assertation that Martin Rushent had anything to do with it.

I have a Lou Reed CD (also on RCA) with the same sticker. I suspect it may be part of a promotional campaign to get rid of old stock at bargain prices.

The sample is probably from the 1998 Japanese film "After Life".

The version of Tour De France here sounds different to all other versions I have heard (not just edited).

I agree, the audio quality is dire. I thought my CD player was faulty, it's *that* bad.

This CD is in the Phillips CD-Video format, and therefore requires a special hardware player. They can't be played on a PC or a DVD player.

"We're Going To Live For A Very Long Time" re-uses the rhythm track to "Marianne" by the Human League. Was this a sly dig at their ex-colleagues? Who knows.
