Is this the shrink-wrapped version with "Recut from Original Master" hype sticker on the wrap?

I'm not sure what this was originally mixed down to but it really needs an all analogue mastering & cutting by one of the likes of Scott Hull @ Masterdisk / ... See full review

Was this version remastered or cut from the original master?

Any lacquer cutting credits?

I'm really hoping this gets the Miles Showell / Abbey Road "Half Speed Mastering" treatment across three 180 gram disks.

Random crud and dished / warped vinyl is not a characteristic of coloured vinyl.

The reason for the unacceptable pressing is due to this being pressed at United, identified by the "the " Ⓤ" in the run out grooves.

The 2012 repress uses the same "DFI 95-5" metal work as the original 1995 release so no nasty digital remastering business going on there.

180 gram?

Same problem here. Common issue with gatefolds pressed at GZ Media.

Would be great to get a repress with worldwide distribution.

Any more on that rumor of a half-speed mastered 45 RPM 2LP?

From my experience Direct Metal Mastering has had a tendency to sound harsh & digital.

Loving the re-edit of "Moonchild"

If only it were on the A-Side and pressed at 45 RPM.

At least Sound Entity were honest and upfront about remastering from vinyl.

Has anyone heard and care to comment regarding the sound quality?

Curious as to why this was not cut at 45 RPM...

Looking forward to this, but looks better suited to a 3xLP with 2 tracks per side?

Does this use the Kevin Gray remastering as the 2008 & 2016 reissues use?

Was the re-cut at D&M or Record Industry?

Was the whole 2LP re-cut or just the faulty side?

Who does Get On Down use for their mastering and pressing?

Thanks.

This seems to be a new label, any comment on the mastering / sound quality?
posted a comment on Infiniti / Reel By Real - Techno Por Favor / Sundog. about 1 month ago
Agree, it would have been great to get "Techno Music" on the flipside. No disrespect to Reel By Real - "Sundog" but it has been readily available since 2010 on the Reel By Real ‎– "20 Years Surkit" 2x12" which was repressed again last year.
posted a comment on Skid Row - Slave To The Grind. about 1 month ago
Agreed. With 12 tracks in total would make a great candidate for a 45 RPM 2xLP. Cut from tape by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman or Ryan K Smith at Sterling Sound.

"Digital Remaster" makes me sceptical...Who did the remaster?

Any reviews on the sound quality for this one?

Over 23 minutes of music on the A side, not sure why they just didn't give us the Mood II Swing mixes with one track per side at 45 RPM?

£17 seems pretty steep for a 12" these days.

This needs are remastering and re-cut by Dubplates & Mastering.

A brilliant mastering / lacquer cutting engineer who did beautiful work.

Such a shame he was never able to do 2LP AAA versions of "Appetite For Destruction", "Nevermind" and "Badmotofinger" with the original master tapes.

Classic album from that late 1990's / early 2000s heyday of New Zealand music.

Would love to see this get the 2LP remaster that Shihad's "General Electric" (45 RPM) and Feelers "Supersystem" albums have been treated to.

Most likely remastered at Friday Music by Joe Reagoso. Around 2015 Friday Music was using Ron McMaster at Capitol mastering for lacquer cutting. Not sure if all analogue (I'm certain that Ron McMaster has a digital preview in his cutting ... See full review

This would have been a cracking 12" had it not been for cramming twenty minutes of club music on one side of vinyl.

Looks to be a recent press modeled on a 1992 Record Review 12".

Interesting to hear that. I thought it would have sounded amazing spread across two LPs when the original and all re-issues until now have been single LPs.

Lots of good reviews of Warner's 2015 Abbey Road cut / MPO pressed "Simple Things", which the price has increased for.

Analogue tape to 96/24 transfer and dynamic compression (squashed) by Stephen Marcussen before being half-speed mastered by Miles Showell.

These single sided reissues of legendary R&S tracks are great with a dedicated side to itself but would be even better if they cut the same tune on both sides.

Can anyone comment on the sound quality of the mastering and pressing?

I'm always dubious when i see "REMASTERED 2018" with no remastering credits.

A shame they did not cut at 45 RPM for maximum fidelity.
