The 2012 Deluxe (https://www.discogs.com/release/3612419-Paul-And-Linda-McCartney-Ram) compared to the 1971 US pressing (https://www.discogs.com/release/1361556-Paul-Linda-McCartney-Ram) has sibilance and isn't as forgiving to pop/crackle after a few... See full review

Does anyone know if this was ever released in MONO? I own a extremely clean first pressing but I hate the way it is produced for stereo.

My copy includes a Hype sticker stuck to the original coverart that takes over from left to the right of the cover. this obstructs the title of the album. The sticker says: 2 Records! Special Price - James Brown Sings & Plays - 22 Giant Hits.... See full review

posted a review of Ashton, Gardner, Dyke & Co.* - What A Bloody Long Day It's Been. 9 months ago
This is one mean, lean fighting machine of a record. Guitars and horns pummel the listener laying down nasty rock tracks. A fun precursor to the pub rock that would come later in the mid to late 70s.
Elbow - Dead In The Boot

Very discouraged that this is only a selection of B-Sides from Elbow's first few albums, and it fails to include so many (might I say better) B-sides like George Lassos the Moon,

Broken Social Scene - You Forgot It In People
posted a review of Broken Social Scene - You Forgot It In People. 10 months ago
Just did a side by side with an early Canadian repress (I suspect closer to a 2003 repress). This new repress is far more flat, it plays quiet (although still an occasional pop and crackle can be heard). The album overall plays far more uniformed and... See full review

My early Canadian repress (I suspect closer to 2003) copy has much pop and crackle, but the master is dynamic and punchy. The kickoff to KC Accidental is huge! The bass on Stars And Sons has a thick growl. When compared to the new 2023 RSD pressing... See full review
Nina Simone - Live In Europe
posted a review of Nina Simone - Live In Europe. 11 months ago
I am happy with how the Phoenix 2-4-1 – AFESD 1039, AFE – AFESD 1039 1982 pressing sounds. Spinning it right now, and the voice and piano cut through nicely. The dreaded tambourine is present but may not seem as overwhelming as in other mixes.

By the way, this copy sounds marvelous—a nice soundstage with quiet playback. The sleeve is also a nice sturdy tip-on.

I have this copy, and all of the label details are the same (1969 Reissue with Green & Red "1841 Broadway" Labels), but the cover artwork doesn't have the "STEREO" going off into the white margin as this copy portrays. My copy, "STEREO," sits nicely... See full review
The Kinks - Kinks
posted a review of The Kinks - Kinks. 12 months ago
It Plays significantly louder and more crisply than even the original Stereo pressing from '64. Also, the original '64 "You Really Got Me" pressing is 3 tracks less than this pressing. Though all of this may be due to this pressing significant compression.

I have the white pressing as well as the hot pink pressing, and to my ear, the hot pink pressing sounds superior; the bass is more pronounced - not louder, just more clear, and it seems more up front and less muddy than the white pressing. Also, I... See full review

Also, I will add that the Red pressing (3rd pressing) is the most silent playback with the least pop/crackle. It may be the best-sounding copy pressed.

Janis Ian - Janis Ian
posted a review of Janis Ian - Janis Ian. about 1 year ago
Compared to the 1975 Polydor reissue pressing, this copy has a bit of a muddy quality.

The Polydor pressing is significantly more bright and more precise. Surprised to find that the later pressing sounds so much better.

Did anyone happen to get one that includes 2 copies of the same A/B record? I am missing the C/D record and I have two copies of A/B.

So many misspellings and grammatical mistakes! Remarkable this passed any proofreading. Some massively pretentious writing here! Not to mention Paul Morley’s writing is next to impossible to trudge through and make heads or tails of his point.

I have had the same issue with my copy. What's more infuriating is that the one has the label pressed in that it is a A/B record but instead it has the C/D music again.

I have a copy that includes 2 of the A/B vinyl. Does anyone have a copy that includes 2 of the C/D vinyl? I would like to trade so that we can each have complete versions of this album.

This 2020 reissue has a slightly deeper sleeve (measured at a quarter of an inch) as opposed to 2007 pressing with its very flimsy sleeve of only an 8th of an inch. I haven't compared the quality of the vinyl yet. Will do open both and provide a... See full review

A clean copy, dead silent on my table as well. The only issue is it feels a little dead and flat. But this isn't to say it is muddy. Nothing really punches or jumps out. And I don't know how it compares to earlier/other pressings, maybe it was always... See full review

The label lists this pressing as a Stereo. It sounds pretty balanced though.

So the STH2065-SC MASTERDISK is 140grams, The STH2065C S60434 DJ is 180grams. I found the 180gram to have less treble and it also lacked a high pitch tingy like sound that the MASTERDISK pressing had throughout. Interestingly the 180gram pressing is... See full review
