Dudes, all vinyls are the same pressing/manufacturing by Optimal and mastering/lacquers by Sterling/JN-H. Colours alone don't make a difference in sound unless ingredients/marerial would vary for each.

Take a look at the CD pics, e.g. https://www.discogs.com/Shakira-Laundry-Service/release/2066043/image/SW1hZ2U6MzI3MTMzNA==
The blur is a visual effect caused by the spinning of the washing drum

Can't understand complaints about prints, there's no lack of quality or diff. compared to CD prints

Very impressive! I was just glad to catch the remaster, and Levi Seitz made the best of it from digital sources. So no blame on him IMHO, he used what he got. But Sebastian is totally right on the problem itself of nowadays productions and why... See full review

Thanks for the info, number of jackets shown in video was just my guess. I'm so glad having this anyway.

Seems like ca. 600 pressings, judging from this Video contributed by the Band's FB site.

I totally agree on tracks and sound. I bought the bundle with the show ticket, it was awesome. The setlist was even better than on Clutch (3) - Live From The Doom Saloon Vol. II, featuring "Elephant Riders" and "Spacegrass", which are a essential to me for a Clutch show. The blame for...

Simply don't agree. Seems you like to bash on GZ (to have a word, acc. to your usual comment history).
GZ has developed far since their early years; maybe not to an audiophile level but very solid at least.
Plastic package might not appeal to everyone... See full review

I received my copy today. It came tax-free from the US via UK to Germany, that's why it took a little longer than usual. Happy.

Anyone else with the impression/ effect that database transactions on display are behind (revolving) updates and so do not present the actual state of edits? In my case there's even a difference between display of releases when logged on or logged off.

Being an owner of the 1st European pressing and the ltd. blue MOV repress with "RL" (Bob Ludwig) in the runouts I can tell these sound great (my pics/ contribution added here for both). "Masterdisk" itself printed in the runouts of the US release... See full review

At least 1st european is not from DAT, only edition at all with lacquers signed by RL
posted a comment on Rage Against The Machine - Rage Against The Machine. 9 months ago
Absolutely! Because 1st European Press is the only one with his signature (RL) on the lacquer, repressed only once on the BLUE Rage Against The Machine - Rage Against The Machine.

The Indie releases from Pallas are exactly the same master and RKS lacquer pressings. So how come this conclusion?

I'd generally agree, but you don't own this either (as far as I can see). So, it remains your assumption too.

Good one! I liked that pre-concert insight Clutch DS footage, but wasnt aware of the logo. Asked indiemerch (distributor then) after receiving my shipping notification who pressed this, unfortunately never got an answer.

Can't tell for the 2009 MOV. But if you're looking for the rare original Robert Ludwig cut this ltd. 2013 MOV is the one to go for Rage Against The Machine - Rage Against The Machine

All 2014 remastered releases should be corrected for mastering credits to Peter Black (3) (instead of Stephen Marcussen), like on Fu Manchu - No One Rides For Free as an example.

United Record Pressing not mentioned on release or on runouts. It's an assumption, added Notes.

I'd say the tracklist of Vol. III was even better than already on Vol. II. Vinyls announced for March 2021.
Anyone knows if Vol. I came out on Vinyl too (unfortunately I missed that show)?

Not a variant, the color here is somewhat shaded between blue and green, hard to spot right on pics.

Wrong, not grey. This release was advertised "exclusive silver vinyl" by the Official AC/DC store. If you log in and go to the edit section for the images of this release you'll see it.

Correct, only the original has printed inner. Careful where you buy, (some) sellers usually go for barcodes only without knowing. MINT offers therefore usually considered to be suspicious.

You own it? Or just your assumption? For everyone wondering about the stain on pics: It's part of the artwork, no fault.

I just saw the comments here and stumbled over a crazy typo in the matrix for this release (unnoticed for years), which I corrected. So, It's not WWME, but WMME, the abbreviation of Warner Music Manufacturing Europe. Added another picture of it from my copy. See full review

All hail to Mark Pinske who engineered this perfectly. Very tight sound comparable to 1982 rec. band on CD2 of Frank Zappa - You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore Vol. 5. Captures this line-up as deserved, way much better than the "The Torture Never Stops" DVD or similar.

All I can say is that this release has obviously been repressed after original limitation (quantity unknown) - which sold out soon everywhere due to its success - but now still is available. Maybe that's the reason for below described faultiness. My... See full review
