Thank you for your info. I just wondered because I know that they had at least two pressing plants at that time, so...

I'm not sure why this rather uninspiring 7" commands such high prices. Is it that it's the only 'Fish era' UK single in promo format (not counting test pressings)? Is it because it's an edited version? Maybe it's both these facts. Whatever the reason, ... See full review

Can anyone shed light on the length of both of these tracks? My suspicion is that they are the same versions as on this release:

The 'single version' of "The Art of Parties" is actually the 12" single version.

This is a really gorgeous pressing. The sound is excellent (for a picture disc) as is the overall presentation. Nice one Legacy!
posted a comment on Toto - Hold The Line. about 1 month ago
Isn't this a factory custom pressing? Like the other CBS 7" singles such as Billy Joel "My Life" red vinyl and Neil Diamond "Forever In Blue Jeans" blue vinyl?

Definitely signed by Paloma, but clearly very quickly done. A lot were signed according to her twitter feed.

It's not really a Japanese release, it's Morrissey being playful!
posted a comment on Kate Bush - The Kick Inside. about 1 month ago
This green vinyl Globus edition was the very first of their "Kick Inside" coloured vinyls to be issued. As with the black vinyl promo, it comes in a fully laminated, glossy, heavy card stock sleeve. The later issues are in thinner, matte sleeves.

Weird that it doesn't have "Into The Groove". This mirrors the very first release for some reason.

I should think so, yes. I like the inclusion actually, I always liked this track.

I found out that the plastic sleeve itself is luminous; both the front and the back! The large circle on the reverse side is actually the moon. If you keep the luminous splattered blue vinyl in the sleeve, expose it to bright light, then view in a dark ... See full review

Typically of GZ Vinyl - mine is scratched and scuffed right out of the sleeve! Why oh why companies still use this appalling pressing plant is beyond me - unless all they care about is sales and not about the quality of the product?
posted a comment on Mariah Carey - Butterfly. 2 months ago
Nope! No download either with the Euro edition. No card, no 'blank space' where a number should be either. I think it's simply a mistake on the printing of the sleeve sticker?
posted a comment on Michael Jackson - Scream. 2 months ago
Yes. My tip is to immediately place the vinyls into separate sleeves. Japanese Nagaoka ones just about fit without too much wrinkling. If not, scratching is likely. Also, I wonder how long it will be until the vinyl reacts with the pvc of the outer cover ... See full review

Overall, the sound quality of both these vinyls seems to be better than the blue vinyl single disc version

Any mention of the 'Disconet' or 'special' remix of "Jump Shout" being of 9'35" in duration are completely incorrect. The track is actually 6'23" in length.

They're both differently manufactured. You can actually play the holographic vinyl of the Split Enz single because it's been laser etched, whereas this one is merely one sided and the holographic side can't even be played! The vinyl is not laser etched ... See full review
