Andreas, I know you really like the Japanese Space Oddity, but are there any others that are preferable? Some of these discs are garbage. I'm listening to the Japanese "Low" right now, and it seems as if the stereo spectrum is entirely off. Not as far as I remember. The German ones are go...

I find the extra resolution due to just a quality mastering capturing lots of detail on the master tape, much like the DCCs. Sorry, but this sort of statement is just a cloud of vagueness to me. Sorry, that was my attempt at humour. http://stevehoffman.tv/forums/showpost.php?p=3690456&postcount=5

This election is like Abe Simpson vs. Lyle Lanley. As someone who has only looked at this race from one ocean away, and one who has completely missed Obama's speech in Berlin (I have a transcript though), what is that you criticicze about the Democratic candidate? Judging from the transcipt of his ...

Could anyone post a sample from the "Direct Hits" CD? I would like to compare this against the "The Singles" CD.

The Who - I Don't Even Know Myself

Hi folks, do you know about the alternate version of that song that appeared as a bonus track on the Japanese version of The Best Of Then And Now? There is a 30 seconds sample on White Fang's site: http://thewho.info/MP3/MP3-s2/71-IDEKM-Who.mp3 When was it recorded compared to the common version, an...

BTW, Andreas, a few of the ones you sent me don't have Japanese/German divisions (Ziggy, for example). Are all of those German? Yes, all of these are German. The exception is Aladdin Sane, which says "Made In Japan" on the disc, but has the same design and catalogue number scheme as my Ge...
