The deluxe is an all new assembly of the original album from its master tapes, an AAA chain cut. That's why it's so desirable. A quick search should have informed!

It doesn't; asking price is pure coincidence. If you look at selling history they're virtually identical across the board. When availability gets thin sellers mark-up price for competition and demand being where it is there you go.

That's not considered a mispress, it's a manufacturing variation. It happens sometimes and denotes nothing special or unique.

Like, do you not know who Daft Punk are? This album was big when it came out and they literally just disbanded and that brought attention to it again. lol

DMM simply stands for Direct Metal Mastering. Specialty did do DMM at the time and the lacquer was cut by Masterdisk.

If anyone has the original UK edition stateside and is looking to sell, please do let me know! Tracking one down at a reasonable price without huge shipping fees has been next to impossible, especially with the reissue floating around.

Optimal has become Europe's cheap & quick turnaround go-to next to GZ. And that's not a good thing. The proof is in the pudding.

The new text in the runout is simply re-press designation. There's nothing different about the master.

Promo is only added as freetext to a release when it's physically marked as a promo. Stickered copies are not considered unique.

You should check out your equipment because mine is fantastic. Big booming live quality.

Because it's an unofficial release. That's your answer. The copyright holders can and have levied complaints against Discogs for selling unauthorized editions. They've since restricted most of it aside from various grey area live bootlegs.

It's probably less the master and more of how it was cut to disc. I have not listened myself but what you're describing sounds like inner-groove distortion. The analogue mix was made by making all new tape transfers of the original tape stems, then... See full review

If the runout etchings are the same they're the same discs. No difference. As of now I'm pretty certain they are the same thing. Buy with confidence! (unless of course, anyone proves otherwise)

The band wanted maximum fidelity out of the album, so there's your answer. More power to them! The proof is in the pudding as I'm sure your ears can tell.

You need to check out your equipment then, because the recording is "not very low." So, no it's not. Thanks!

Little late here but they were around 18 when the album was recorded.

No, it did not. Very unusual for a Japanese release at the time.

The album was recorded on tape and then transferred digitally and mixed digitally. The new analogue remaster was made by duplicating the original tape and remixing entirely on tape. There's an interview with Shields that goes in depth about it. He... See full review

Got lucky on eBay a few months ago and snagged an original pressing for $25. It sounds amazing! Highly recommended, especially if you keep an eye out there like I did and grab a deal.

It's all the same master pressed at the same facility. No difference besides color.

It's true! They sound incredible. It varies from track to track but there's a very live quality to everything across the board. It shows they weren't merely a cash grab!

The Pillows albums on vinyl sound fantastic, I highly recommend going-in on those for the sound alone. Great stuff!

I'm getting a "insufficient stock" warning when trying to order the deluxe edition on MBV's site. The regular one doesn't give that error. Did they sell out already? What the hell?

Looks like it did, seeing as MGMT are their own label now. Since it lapsed under Columbia it's possible rights have completely reverted and MGMT will reissue it in the future. It's bound to happen but hard to say when.

The lowest one of these has sold for recently was $199 on ebay, that's about as "fair" you're gonna get with what the market has decided. Personally I'd wait on a reissue because it's bound to happen. These Rainbo copies suck!
posted a comment on Vanessa Carlton - Be Not Nobody. 9 months ago
It's awful. Sounds like they took the CD and chopped-off the top end and cut it to disc. Very compressed and dull. The CD actually sounds fantastic in comparison. This was a cash-grab and nothing more. I'm hoping one day Vanessa gets to put out a... See full review

What is with all the 1994 dated releases? I know it's the copyright date but it wasn't officially released until 1995. Supposedly the vinyl edition wasn't put out till 1997 but I cannot find the article that stated so.

No, as it's not a separate edition. A note should be added that some copies shipped with a zine, and appropriate pictures accompanying it.

During a brief period of 2019 these had a lul in price and I managed to snag one under $100 in fabulous shape. It's spectacular, and have others have said before me it's the one to get. The reissue is not bad by any means but getting a nice copy is a... See full review

Packaging is fabulous in execution, perfectly ties itself as an artifact from the film. There aren't any mastering credits anywhere so it's assumed an in-house GZ job, which thankfully sounds fantastic. Big, full, dynamic. Unfortunately the pressing... See full review

I have it, I submitted this entry. It matches the 2017 release sound-wise despite being on one disc, and the pressing job is a lot better. Alex Wharton cut it at Abbey Road and Record Industry pressed it. Disc is virtually noiseless. I do not have an... See full review

Really funny their machines got sold and shipped to URP, arguably just as bad if not sometimes worse. Nothing gained out of this one!

The European reissue pressed by Record Industry is phenomenal. It's the release to get.
