It is very misleading. Many would expect a different version. It was the same mix used on the lp and 12". Bad Girls and Hot Stuff being on the same 12" is what probably caused confusion somewhere.
I would have listed the two tracks 'Hot Stuff/Bad... See full review

Wasn't a fan of stacking. Always thought it was bad for the records. Sometimes it would drop two records.

In the dead wax. Not on label. You could easily engrave it in the label if that would make you happy.

I can't imagine many if any of the lower priced compilations being remastered. If they are it is usually plastered somewhere on the cover. I wouldn't be surprised if the tracks are compiled directly from cd or even mp3 much like other budget... See full review

Is that a propeller? No. It's Otis Redding spinning in his grave after hearing TDN suck all of the soul from Try A Little Tenderness. Why?

They did write songs, but none ended up on TDN albums.

Small (ish), dark room & loud indeed.
Funny how with certain music you can remember exactly the first time you heard it, but with the other 99% you don't have a clue. Like it was just there.

My copy does. If you don't feel like listening you can tell by the matrix numbers.
Side A: XPR 1375 A2 (with about 5cm of dead wax)
Side B: XPR 1375 B1 (with about 3cm of dead wax)

Yes. You can pay ahead or after the show then pick up your copy shortly after the show. This is why it's a cdr. It would take considerably longer to ship off the recording, have a master burned, press a cd, print artwork and send it back to you. Cd or... See full review

Looked around, but didn't see anything. If you could upload a pic of the label that would be helpful.
I know the OVED version is a first pressing and would have 1-a, 1-b for the sides and OVED 39 would be included somewhere.
Or it could be something... See full review

A turd shaped record would sound better than the red, white & blue version.

Stick with the white pressing or find a 1980 pressing with low miles.

So from what I'm reading in the comments, even though this version was botched somewhere along the way (mastering to pressing) people are still happy with it. I have somewhere along the lines of a medium + stereo setup and this red, white & blue... See full review

They called it that to alert quad collectors of the availability. It uses four channel surround like a CD-4 disc.

I bought mine from Rhino and they sent the d/l link and code.
Checked through my old email and it's long gone. (Thanks Yahoo)
I doubt the link would still be valid. A lot of time has passed

Curious how you know the legal status of PTG Records or their parent Vinyl Masterpiece.
They are responsible for many hundreds of title and have been operating for years.
If they were pirates they would have been shut down and sued years ago.

Considering the cd is already over 75 minutes they were probably not concerned with adding anything else. They probably wanted to use tracks that were more commercial.

Speculation is the lp version.
Many times when doing a compilation cd you have to use what the label gives you
or what can be used. Maybe they couldn't find the mix?
More than likely it got burned up in a warehouse fire.
Someone could do a great set... See full review

In 1984 a lot of records weren't dj friendly. Barely enough intro and the breaks weren't right. These were the early days of dance mixes as most 12" were just extended versions. Nothing fancy. Usually the instrumental version to get it going until the... See full review

This is actually the 1984 German cd. Listing needs corrected.
Far as I can tell Upstairs at Eric's didn't see a UK cd release until 1986.
The catalogue would be CD STUMM 7.

Every cd ever made has been remastered digitally cause cds are encoded digitally and decoded to analog.
If you want the entire chain of this title in analogue you're gonna have to buy the lps.

Too bad the fire didn't spread to their side of town on the night this was recorded. They should have avoided the ballad-type tracks on every album. 'Repetition' on the previous album was just as bad and that was even a single. Bored-sounding,... See full review
