Re: Reissues project

Not too enthousiastic about the remastering of Release. Now I currently can't listen on hi-q components, but through my headphones the only real difference can be heard on The Samurai in Autumn which sounds better than on the original release. For the rest not much difference. Many tracks sound as i...

Re: Reissues project

It was released on the second CD-single in continental Europe a few months after the single release Small correction: it was the third EU CD-single. The 2nd being "The DJ Pierre Remixes". The Voxigen Mix was also released on an Italian 12", both releases from approx. February 1994.

Re: Reissues project

Or maybe the Voxigen mix could be moved to another (later) single, as I believe it was released much later. It was released on the second CD-single in continental Europe a few months after the single release https://www.discogs.com/release/218380 So it's still part of the I Wouldn't single release ...

Re: Reissues project

Challenge: for some singles not all mixes and b-sides will fit on just one CD. Example: I Wouldn't Normally Do This Kind Of Thing (7" version) 4:45 I Wouldn't Normally Do This Kind Of Thing (Beatmasters Radio Edit) 4:01 I Wouldn't Normally Do This Kind Of Thing (EU 7" version = album versi...

Re: Please font

Not 100% the same but pretty close: Neue Helvetica Extended. Kerning needs to be adjusted though.

Re: Reissues project

Can you be specific please? No matter how hard I listen I can't hear a glitch in the original, unless you count the entire chorus as an error. There was a topic about it back in the days: https://www.petshopboys-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=26410 When the orchestra builds up, in the middle the...

Re: Reissues project

No, I get that. But they own the stems, and have probably missed out on that one minor details and, in effect, did a "remix". If it were a glitch, there would be more of an overall skip and timing issues, and not a single note. I say this as a somewhat musically trained person. It doesn't...

Re: Reissues project

Makes you wonder why they don't learn from it if it happens so often. You can save a few pennies on extra cardboard but if you have to ship out replacements what's the saving in the end? Ordered two copies of Undertow from Amazon. They were separately packed in thick cardboard mailers and these agai...

Re: Liza Minnelli - Results Expanded 4 disc edition

Possibly an edit made by DMC? Thus not official.
