Oh, and that's cause you are looking for this version which actually is red. https://www.discogs.com/Queen-Greatest-Hits/release/12643976
If you paid $70 for red and got black you were taken.

This tracklisting is the original UK version. Under Pressure was not included.

They can press whatever color vinyl they want and the stamper would not indicate that unless it was a special stamper/color issue only to be used at that time. Where do you see anything about red vinyl anyway? Not in this listing.

Eventually we'll all have to accept some boys want to be girls and some girls want to be boys (or is that a different song?). Mr Twin was merely priming us for the future.

The Beach fades out early instead of coming to a slow stop. Funny how in the above notes it says 'The 2nd edition released in summer 2009 corrected these errors.', but it fails to mention the 2009 version created new errors.

#1170 Can't imagine everyone sat around waiting for this to go live so they could purchase.
It is claimed the record # is the same as the order number.
Extended/12" versions belong on a12" single not squashed onto an lp.

It actually was getting airplay here, but there was too much of a demand for Always on My Mind and EMI felt that would be a stronger choice for a single. I agree, PSB were robbed. Heart would have been a surefire hit.

I'm a little confused. Are the tracks that say Original 12" remixed as well? A Street Sounds distributor found a couple cases and before I buy I want to know if the lp is worth it. x

People weren't buying a lot of records then so Capitol just imported some for the fans. This was done with other bands as well.

In the US we had Columbia House and BMG. Famous for 10 cds for 1 cent or similar. Many times the discs, cassettes, lps or whatever were the same as commercial copies with no difference. Sometimes they had a difference matrix marking.
Lps varied the most ... See full review

You Are in My System (Instrumental Mix) sounds nothing like the track at all. If it is a remix the person involved used very little to none of the original song elements.
It is clearly a nineties house music style. I am unable to find any information ... See full review

All of Remote Control and other A&M tracks appear here. https://www.discogs.com/The-Tubes-Goin-Down/master/1062711 Sound is equal to or better than the 1990 cd release. The American Beat Records version should be avoided.

You must clean new records before the first play. There is residue present.

Balance is interesting as it is very minimal and you have to pay attention in order to get it. ie, sit and listen. The Seduction is the worst thing Art Of Noise ever churned out. Someone needed to grow a pair and tell Trevor it was crap. They needed to ... See full review

I've been told the neon yellow version was the standard pressing. I have a copy of the black version which is harder to find.

Far as I know it was never issued commercially. Only as a promo. So now you have to buy a copy of the cd and rip it.

For years I've been trying to find who owns the masters. I'd love to lease it for a proper reissue. The Hector in Paris stuff as well.

Great cd! The mastering is fantastic! Lucifer great as well! It is a shame about the Omni version. People waited a long time only to be disappointed on release day.

This album quickly dropped off my playlist and I went back to playing Low Or Hunky Dory. His death was the only reason this got to No. 1 in the US.
posted a comment on Various - U.K. Buzz #001. about 1 year ago
If memory serves correct, most if not all of these songs were released in 1984. Unless UKBuzz had a wormhole available this album could not have been released in 1983.

This is a collaboration between Tony Mansfield and Rob Fisher. The failure of an lp release led to their future works with Naked Eyes.

Thommy Price is not responsible for the LinnDrum on tracks 2,3,5 & 6. I would imagine this to be

You would really do yourself a fovour and seek out the original pressing. Things like this I don't even bother with the RSD press. They rush this stuff out and there are quality issues.
