Terrible distortion on my record. Is this a general pressing fault or did I just get unlucky with my copy? Its a beautiful album and not one where you want this kind of issue. If this is simply lack of quality control at Gondwana records they should hang ... See full review

Brilliant album, a real journey...textured, imaginitive, bubbling, gurgling, glitchy, i hope they do a vinyl release.

Superb song, up there with some of his very best. The best of folks will see the best in you.

Absobloody lutely. A fortune to be made from a good quality reissue

If anyone happens to have just stumbled here, I can’t implore you more to buy a copy of this very cheap gem. Old school calypso delivered with such humour and charm by the unmistakable voice of the tiger. Enjoy every word.

I should also add side B is covered in hairline scratches, even though this was sealed. Quality control severely lacking.

I think this is a very average pressing. Quiet, passable, but lacking punch and dynamics. A bit too compressed for my liking.

Neither has appeared, any ideas what is happening, orbare they busy prepping for their red rock gig?
posted a comment on Suede - Royal Albert Hall, 24 March 2010. 3 months ago
Yeah, sadly agree. I was at the gig and it was incredible, but the sound here is very thin. Not too much effort went into it, despite the reasonable packaging.

An absolute stunner, soulful, cosmic and as the title says, sweet!

Yep, time for a repress, who is going to pay those insane prices for a 3 year old record?

This is up there with the Heart of the Congos - deep and soulful sounds all the way, 6 killer tracks all with brilliant King Tubby dubs on side B. Certainly deserves a reissue.
posted a comment on Milton Henry - Showcase: Branches And Leaves. 5 months ago
Deep rhythms, great lyrics and vocal delivery but they should have put all the dubs on side B to avoid the constant feeling of deja vu
posted a comment on Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan - Hawk. 6 months ago
I agree, these first ones are extremely deserving of a reissue. Amazes me labels sleep on what would be an obvious money spinner.

Deep, spiritual, mellow, soothing, highlife of the highest order. Grab a copy if you can, there’s pure joy to be heard through the crackles.

are these reissues still happening in December, anyone know? I wish they'd do the first one again too.

Did you ever find out the answer?

I would like a good copy of this.
posted a comment on Janet Kumah - Yellow Flower. 7 months ago
No cd or vinyl press yet? Surely this great album deserves that.
posted a comment on Carbon Based Lifeforms - Interloper. 7 months ago
Beautiful packaging, god awful pressing, came with crackles, pops and actual skips - not what youbwant on an ambient record. The band should care how their beautiful and thoughtful music is being presented by this label.

Killer, all the way...hope he follows up with an album of this quality.

The prices for this are insane. It's good but really...? A 45 Euro record until recently. I'll be waiting for another reissue.

What a gem this album is, how long til the world discovers the soulful sounds of Danit? Hopefully a vinyl release one day.

I’d also like to know this, whether from masters or a rip from a good copy. Hopefully it’s a decent job.

Wow! That would be worth crossing the world for! All the original members surviving?

One of the unsung heroes of the Nigerian Boogie & Disco scene. Every track here is killer. If these are from the original masters this will be a must-buy.

Again, no vinyl issue. It's a shame given how good these albums are.
posted a comment on Ali Farka Toure* - Niafunké. 10 months ago
This beautiful album really needs a vinyl issue - some of the singing on this is as stunning as the playing.

Is there going to be another press? The greedhead flippers have started their nonsense.
posted a comment on Mildlife - Phase. 10 months ago
So is a CD the best way to go with this album? Sounds like a woeful press, which is a real pity for such good music.
posted a comment on The Nude Party - The Nude Party. 10 months ago
How long til this band gets properly picked up? They’ve got swagger and charm in spades. Derivative perhaps but still lots of fun if you love garage psych or the stones. Watch this space.

The pressing isn’t too bad either.

There’s some real magic here. I return to this album a lot. Some it has elements of dub. Well worth your time.
posted a comment on Richard Hawley - Standing At The Sky's Edge. 11 months ago
Bit thin sounding to my ears, probably from a digital source as the dynamics aren't what they should be. Solid album though, almost psych.
posted a comment on Richard Hawley - Coles Corner. 11 months ago
Agree with Cyrilnoya, this should definitely have been reissued. Who in their right mind would pay the price for the first issue?

Did you find out? I also would prefer to save on the cost of an original if its a quality repress
posted a comment on The Orb - No Sounds Are Out Of Bounds. 11 months ago
The black vinyl version sounds awesome. They’ve done a good job here, the sound is rich and full. The best Orb album in a while. Even the Slightly poppier songs are ok.

This band have something quite special and unique. The lucid remixes on spotify are hugely imaginitive and beautifully produced. should be a vinyl release for sure.

How’s this re-press people? Does it sound deep and real like the OG?

This one is really beautiful, slow woozy dowop at its best. One day a new audience will discover these gems and they won’t be as cheap as they are now.

Absolutely, the album is beautiful but the pressing absolutely atrocious. Advise others to get the CD or wait for a better quality reissue.

There needs to be, this one's solid gold. And there are some loopy asking prices for an OG

How does the vinyl sound, proper mastering or a cheap rip from a digi source?
