Profile

Was a pro club DJ for many years. Am now semi retired (to save my ears) but still love the occasional night behind the decks. Oh and I still appreciate the Compact Disc too! There’s nothing wrong with a professionally mastered digital file. Vinyl, realistically and technically, does NOT always sound better (even though I love my records).

Conservative media grader who errs on the side of caution. What follows is my two cents worth on the resale market...

Mint means unplayed and sealed if it was released that way. If not factory sealed, it needs to be untouched and if you haven’t owned it since it came out IT’S NOT MINT! If you can’t prove these facts then the next best is a much more honest grading and also more truthful (NM, M-).

I think Benny and Bjorn must have lost their hearing.

Pulling off the most unexpected comeback in pop music history, ᗅᗺᗷᗅ, after a 40 year “break”, return to our music players with 10 new songs firmly entrenched in that trademark sound. Picking up right where their last long player “The Visitors” left... See full review

These videos so need reissuing in their original aspect ratio where applicable.

Shame about those overdubbed drums…There IS gold here, for me it’s listening to 20,000 Australians singing “Fernando”. Frida is so moved she gets the band to do it again and lets the audience sing along. We love a good sing song down under!

Only Elton John could release a special edition of his then current album with a bonus dvd featuring most of the (then current) album live! Five stars for this set!

These (or at least one of the prints) should have been signed for the price. $600 for one album? Maccas having a go at how much he can charge his fans. Ridiculous!

TheNearFuture you can submit it here at Discogs if you wish, that will be a start to providing information about the set.

Somebody please tell me why ‘Avalon” is not on the CD with this set? It’s hands down the best live version of the song ever recorded and probably the most faithful to it’s meticulously recorded studio cousin. That’s a big fail not including the audio... See full review

There was a box set released of the first 20 in this series, cat # 439 000-2, anybody got one to sub? I believe all the disc trays were made from gold plastic as I have one from a set that was split up for retail sale.

There is a certain dullness to some of the tracks which could be audio filtering to cover up the crackles from a vinyl drop / rip. Not 100% sure but Cherry Red / BBR don't exactly have a great track record with vinyl rips being sold as remasters.

Hi LPSMarcus, Very strange this is being pressed on vinyl when what fans really want is a cd version. Do you have a link to the Universal site?
