Re: Floodland: The collect them all thread

Some additional info on the Pink Label promo: a rip of This Corrosion from this pressing was shared with me and, while it's runtime is longer (See Elon's earlier post with track times as reference), it in no way differs from the commercial LP. The runtime issue originates from a speed variance on th...

Simple - If you bought the 12" variant you'd have the 7" content and a bonus track or two. So why buy the 7" if it's just the music you were after.

All the other 7" releases had exclusive content (and some still do).

This Corrosion - All versions?

Together with a couple of other collectors I have been checking the various versions that proliferate. There are a great number of 'versions' that are faded early on most releases and it is not my intention to include them here - but feel free to add your voice (if you'd like). Sorted by running tim...

Looks like the best deal would be to get the 24/96 (the album's a 44.1 kHz recording, so even the 96 kHz rate is massive overkill let alone 192!) Zombie thread revival: Just got my Vision Thing 1990 LP rip up and there's signal @ 48kHz. All my singles from 90/91 have the limitations mentioned in th...

1989 CBS Haarlem 12" Repressings

Does anyone know when in 1989 the repressing of the first few 12" took place/date of issue?

I have a couple of these and would like to know.

AFAIK the waterisnat matrix is the best complete source. It has more of Burn, and better DR than the DAB.

^ "They shall not pass" offers us the best possible mastering as the CD pressing from 1988 trumps SGWBM. On the other hand the 1985 LP affords us the opportunity to get an HD rip from vinyl that beats the CNT 7" If, as Dave points out, Peel played an acetate with a unique version then it's possible ...

Speed variances on official product are tricky. If, for example, one was to make the baseless assumption that the CD single of More is pressed at the wrong speed and corrected it to match the LP version should one then do something to YCBTO? Conversely, if the CD single is the correct speed (it was ...

The intro of Fix on Wake. When Craig comes in is a fine moment.

Those weird growling/gurgling sounds in Flood I (@ 2:53-3:00) are a spooky one.

The ending of Doctor Jeep Extended Version is a rewarding moment, after the previous 'More, More, More Stupid Guitars' indulgence that preceeds it.
