Very pleased to rediscover this series on this unexpected format.
The now 7 vinyl series change the point of view to the original 3 large compositions, dispatched originally on 6 discs. All cuts are really well done, and every LP revealed a cohesion.... See full review

A nice addition to the Burial + Four Tet white label series. With 7 tracks now, it's a kind of 48min album, punctuate by 4 songs with Thom Yorke. Some of the finest collaborative works of the 3 artists are here.
This one had a more intimate and... See full review

Very nice pressing of a beautiful album. Blue of the vinyl is a kind of cold dark blue transparent, very close to the artwork.
I always prefer vinyl in plain colors than some patchwork of multi-effects... For me the nicer versions of the Dais editions... See full review

Cool compilation. But why releasing again the "Same old madness" long demo version (that already appears on Twelve Inch Singles), and not the video one? This could have been the perfect occasion for this record. Are Cleopatra planning the video... See full review

It's the 5:07 studio version, that previously appears only on "Trax! Box" CD1 (track 8). A very good version that fit well on this selection.
But it's not the video version, that still don't appears on official vinyl. Cleopatra released two time the... See full review

Good option to have "Orient Express" and the sublime "Diamond In The Night" on good sounding vinyl at a descent price. As a bonus, 4 other good Italo tracks (except B2 perhaps that I alway skip).

So. Yes it's a great box. Sound amazing. Yes, the reproduced artwork are not very good. For me the worst is the oversaturated "No.2". All the 4 1st UK album and "Their Satanic..." are zoomed in comparison with originals. That's not a good decision at... See full review

The grumpy part of me is thinking about the ltd 500. In 2013, Audio Fidelity made an amazing repress of this great soundtrack, first limited to 5000 in red, and after another run of 5000 in red too. I think it's an honest quantity regarding the... See full review

Such an amazing album. I don't like other record of this band. This one is just pure genius.
It's a must to have the vinyl too, a very nice object.

Mmm... It is the early recording, and the primary version made by the Beatles. In fact just a light remaster.
I think you refereed to the stereo version. Let have a listen to George Martin: " "You've never really heard Sgt Pepper until you've heard it... See full review

First listeners listen to them during years in mono. From "Please Please Me" to Magical Mystery Tour" The Beatles and George Martin totally don't care about the stereo versions and put all their energy and time to the mono mixes. So we have this... See full review

Perfect remaster as all the mono box.
Just one details they cannot finalized properly is the final lock groove. I also have the mono 1967 first pressing, and on the 2014 repress it's a small jump on the loop. I know how difficult is to duplicate a... See full review

In my humble opinion, one of the best of the three 2013 re-editions of Solaris, for the quality of sound, tracklisting and artwork. Yes it's the re-recordings of 89/90. But well, there are really good! I have the original soundtrack on the Superior... See full review

The most interesting part of this 2 eps. With a special mention to the Cylob "remix" on B1. It looks a completely new track, and I think I have buy the record just to have this one. It's one of his best works.
