#2310

Pre-orders:

and

And this, which arrived today:

I only ever had the Beta Band’s output on CD as they didn’t see widespread vinyl distribution in Oz. I’ll be interested in how good these are.

Also, the swish version of this arrived today:

Dead Can Dance: Dionysus


#2311

Regards the Beta Band, I wonder which album cover came first


#2312

Have you not the 12" EPs , they really released them a year or two ago??


#2313

Cool, it’ll be interesting to compare that with the Hi Res download or with the vinyl version. How do you think it sounds?

Where did you find it?


#2314

Haven’t had a chance to listen yet - I’ll report later.

A friend of mine found it whilst in Canada and posted it back to me - I owe him big time!

How did you find the hi res SACD copy vs vinyl?


#2315

Matt found me a tidy copy of the LP last week but I haven’t had a chance to do that yet.


#2316

Yep. I picked them up on RSD a few years ago.


#2317

I thought it was pretty good, then Thriller came on :slightly_smiling_face:.

Yeah a very good tape for 3.75 ips. Not going to compete with a well recorded 7.5 ips tape but to be honest I was just so relieved it didn’t disintegrate or get chewed up.


#2318

First batch of new arrivals


#2319

R2R @ 7.5 ips


#2320

I bet that will sound amazing :heart_eyes:


#2321

I really fucking hope so! :pray:


#2322

Wow. Canada again?


#2323

Nah, no such luck.

Deal with someone I’ve bought from before off Ebay, and who has a good record of posting things which avoid import and VAT (shhh).


#2324

Lopwell please


#2325

The question is, would that be the ultimate way of owning What’s going on? I suspect it probably is.


#2326

I really hope so, I have high expectations of this one

Certainly the most expensive way of owning ‘Whats going on?’ :laughing:

The sweeteners in the deal including a few more tapes including Aretha ‘Now’, Rolling Stones ‘Between the buttons’ and this, ahem Donovan tape at 7.5ips…
