Obsessed by vinyl, underground psychedelia, audio-engineering and technical stuff. Sadly unrealized musician and producer, and neither DJ... yet.
Manic collector since 2002, currently own 1600 12"\LPs.

Quite eclectic musical interests...
Rock: Psych, NeoPsych, Space, Prog, Acid, Jap, Kraut, Underground, Blues and recently some heavy stoner/doom stuff.
Disco: 70's-80's Disco, Italo-Disco & Funk, NuDisco & Edits,
Cosmic: Afro-CosmicMusic, Tribal, Electro/Dub, Dream/Progressive Trance '95-'99 (laid down @33 RPM)
World: Ethno-Folk, Afrobeat, Reggae, Dub, Oriental, Exotica
House: some Progressive, Funky, Tech, Tribal.
Other: Experimental, TripHop/BigBeat, Downtempo/Lounge, Drone, Indie, anything related to psychedelia, some HipHop, J-Pop and Jazz as well.

Skills, or, what I'm trying to learn...
Digital audio processing, sequencing software, Synths VST programming, mastering, mixing, recording, restoration, engineering. And playing guitar, bass, keyboards, drums.

Productions...
I re-edit or remix some tunes, and sometimes I try to create some original ones. By now, all is done unofficially. I aim to have at least one vinyl with my stuff on it, but the way is still long.

Contact:
Feel free to contact me for any request you may have.

My ratings:
5 - Wonderful, favorite, a must have.
4 - Very nice, will get some heavy rotation.
3 - OK, good overall, worth, but not a stand out.
2 - This will stay in the shelf taking dust for long time...
1 - Bad purchase.

Nice compilation but they cut out all the bass to have 25+ minutes per side, provided those durations are real. Needs the bass knob on the mixer all the way up.
(btw i don't think this was actually released in '82, it may be late 80's or early 90's).

I have a few of this, everything sourced from CD and sounds very clean, and why in the world a remastering would be necessary?. Artwork is well done, at least he/they put some effort into it. All of this paid very cheap so i really doubt they got any ... See full review

This may be an underrated album. Yet quite psychedelic and evidently inspired by Beach Boys / Brian Wilson, it has fine arrangements and a very 'prog' ege, also the mix is not well balanced so the recording itself doesn't actually shine. Oddly a track ... See full review

Agree. However i believe it's due Antibemusic, not Dark Entries. They asked to license the masters, and those were given by them, I noticed heavily "denoised" on their official (Antibemusic) official digital releases. I hoped that was limited to digital ... See full review

While side A seems fine, side B suffers from noise reduction artefacts in the 'bridge' sections, which is exactly the same as Italian 2014 official reissue M & G - When I Let You Down. I guess the owners of master recording lost the original tape an came up with a ... See full review

To me yes, '77 live is the real thing. I'm referring to the Victory bootleg, not this one, chances are they are identical. HTADITF lacks "Distant Memory" and "The Last One" so the set is incomplete. I believe other tracks were performed at that show but ... See full review

I base this comment on a digital copy i've found. All tracks but one are from '77 live, supposedly same exact source, can't say if one is better than another, order is screwed up and lacking of "Distant Memory" and "The Last One". In place of which ... See full review

"Mesmerized" is a masterpiece of saturated garage psycho savageness, so simple, so remarkable, got stuck in my head from the first time. The rest is still very nice short garage numbers, 60's style, almost surf at some point ("I'm a baby"). Recommended.

Note: on this one seems no noise reduction has been applied, it's quite hissy. I guess/hope it was due to the fact original master tapes were used without further processing.
