Super excited about these! Especially "Dog Man Star". I live in America and can't get these without getting bent over. Anyone have a link to the first deluxe (self titled) album that has been reissued? - Cheers
I got the first album deluxe yesterday. The autographs are really nice bonus!
Wow that's a very good deal, very tempting too. I should maybe hold onto some money for TQID boxset...oh hold on they aint doing ANYTHING, epic fail once again from former senior members....
Is the DVD ok? I read somewhere about syncing problems
Being in the states I ordered mine through amazon UK and they wont deliver them until all have been issued..aggggghhhh I have to wait and it's killing me
Their reasoning I suppose is postage to ship to the states.....
Ok, I've gone back and listened to the original CD and compared. The distortion on the two tracks I mentioned is actually inherent in the original recording. What has happened by the sound of it is that Mr Potter has enhanced the high end frequencies to add clarity to guitars and vox but in the process has had to allow the sibilant distortion through which sounds more overt than before. If you EQ the original CD boosting the high end the distortion leaps out. To be fair I don't think there is anything Mr Potter could do about that as it appears to be part of the original (and rather bad) recording commited to the master tape. The only way they could maybe have tried to deal with that is by remixing from the multi track tapes again which would be a very expensive and involved process requiring the booking out of studios etc! Shame though.
Here's a comparison between the original Nude and the remaster. "So Young" my favorite...
