I would assume it's just the DE, although I suppose it is possible that it uses the Super Deluxe mastering. Either way, I'm not going to find out.


Oh, good. I'm out of money, anyway.

Re: New Who Japanese mini-LPs

Is Young Man Blues perhaps the THTTB version, but prior to final overdubs? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BC4GnrWOtkU I would expect NR to be minimal, if at all. A shame that BBC wasn't remastered. Still nothing here. Hopefully tomorrow. It's possible. The vocal is a *lot* drier, and the whole thin...

Re: New Who Japanese mini-LPs

Argh, I'm weak. I had some Xmas money burning a hole in my pocket, so I ordered WAY, WBN and FD as long as they were still in stock. I couldn't bring myself to order Singles for $45, even though it has the FIRST REMASTERED VERSION OF "RELAY" THAT'S NOT CROSSFADED.

Goddammit.

Re: New Who Japanese mini-LPs

IGOTMINE. Astley credited on everything for tape research and mastering. Very nice packaging as is usual for these things. O&S in particular is well done, with the die-cut sleeve. I'll bet WBN is a nice piece with the textured cover. Playing O&S right now, and my first impression (without ri...

Re: Quad 5.1 tracks -- when were they mixed?

Sheesh, no kidding. It was mixed in the same cavern as the 5.1 Fragile.

Re: New Who Japanese mini-LPs

If these actually sound *good*, I'd be tempted to get WBN as well, though the old MCA sounds OK to me (and the remix of that is inoffensive). I'm content with the MFSL of WAY (hate the remix). For FD, I'm cooler than everyone with my MoFi vinyl. 8)

Re: New Who Japanese mini-LPs

I honestly don't know why I care, but I don't like the way the MCA sounds. I had the WB target, too, and it was crappy as well. (Just dull and flat-sounding.) The remix is better, but I hate the remix. So we'll see. I can't bring myself to get FD, WAY and WBN for different mixes of the bonus tracks,...

Re: New Who Japanese mini-LPs

One can only hope. I think I'm going to break down and get O&S and WM/TM. And It's Hard, just to further my quixotic quest for a decent-sounding version of the original mix (if that's possible). The rest don't look worth the $$$. Oh, and seeing it here reminds me: do you know why they left "...

Re: New Who Japanese mini-LPs

Too bad these are so pricey, otherwise I'd be tempted by at least some of them. I also noticed they're re-issuing the My Generation and Quick One boxes at the end of the year -- My Gen is already sold out, and Quick One has one left.

Re: Thoughts on Quad box

Actually, if you include videos, there's been a lot of archival Who stuff released in the last several years. (Amazing Journey, Kilburn (with bonus '69 show), reissued Maximum R&B with bonus '79 show, etc.) I suspect the conventional wisdom is that video is where the action is for live material,...
