Re: The compilation we didn't know we needed...

I don’t have a problem getting this compilation, as it does seem like a good commemorative item for the fifty year celebration. Plus, I don’t own the other hundred compilations that are already out there. I do feel however, that the t-shirt they just added to the lineup is…not great. https://girderm...

Re: Remastered albums

I can't say I've ever noticed any clipped audio for all the years I've been listening to the CD version of On Fire! . I guess it’s only an issue if you’re ripping the CD, not when you’re just listening straight through. Suppose it depends on how you rip it. I use lossless FLAC these days which play...

Does the new version of This Means War fix the cut off drum intro for He Came He Saw He Conquered? The cassette has four snare hits but the original CD has like 2.5 snare hits.
No, I mentioned this above somewhere. The new edition unfortunately exhibits the same error.

Re: Remastered albums

Discovery Systems produced loads of bad CDs. Something in their manufacturing process resulted in a poor quality reflective layer which over time disintegrates, slowly rendering the disc unplayable. Anytime I receive a used disc in the mail, and open it to find a Discovery Systems disc, my first tas...

Re: Remastered albums

I assume Starsong would’ve had to had access to the originals at some point in the 80s when they originally released the CDs. This would’ve been several years after the original LP. Not necessarily, because those CDs are from the era when it was unfortunately common for them to be replicated from s...

Re: Remastered albums

The two formerly 'missing' tracks on the 'Washes Whiter Than' remaster appear to have been sourced from vinyl. Listen carefully and you can hear the odd giveaway. In fact, the pops and flutters match exactly with the WAV files of those songs, that I uploaded to this very forum a couple of years ago...

Re: Remastered albums

Various outlets have reported over the past few years that vinyl has been outselling CDs, but what they usually mean is that vinyl is out earning CDs. It’s possible that the number of vinyl units might have exceeded CDs last year, but the information put out to the news media is a little clouded.

Re: Remastered albums

I only know what little I’ve read online about Rob Colwell and Bombworks sound. It seems like it’s been a recording and mastering company for 25 years or so. Do you know for sure about how he does remasters? Like I said, I don’t know a lot about the company.

Re: Electric Jesus (Movie)

It’s still running on the festival circuit right now. Not too many left in the season, so hopefully there will be some news soon about a wider release or availability.
