The only way I would buy it is if there was some cool artwork, stories, extra tunes, etc. that was not available on the CD or DVD.

Besides, I really need to see the Alarma Chronicles bookset reissued first. Crying

He's using United Record Pressing. It's good to see they have their act together now. A year ago they were at the top of a short list of people I initially wanted to use, but they never returned calls, never came through with price quotes on the pressing I wanted, and I was warned by a couple other friends at labels to not use them because they never stuck to their pricing or quotes. From the looks of things on their site, they must have got it together, their prices alone are way less than before....

jeffrey k.


that's right...i talked to him about it earlier this year, just couldn't remember the name...

i know he has been very happy with them

We will have to do some price checking, for MBD, the main concern I would have is the artwork/packaging cost. I can imagine it being high. If we were to look into doing this, I am sure it would be a limited thing. Most likely no new material on it unless Terry wanted to do something like that. It would give space for more text and artwork though.

We will peruse prices and see whats in the horribly strained DA account, and see what Terry and Dan says. But right now our primary concern is the Jubals/DA CD, Terry is sending some notes about what he wants changed then maybe we can have that one on the shelf.

Songs of the Heart is what I would purchase in a heartbeat! This album begs to be put on 180g vinyl. I'll buy 2 right now.

...and as long as your making them, I want the 77's Sticks & Stones , Mark Heard's Second Hand , Michael Been's On the Verge of a Nervous Breakthrough , LSU's This is the Healing , the Dog's Little Red Riding Hood , and Iona's Book of Kells on 180g vinyl gatefold!



ps. Songs of the Heart > MBD

I still buy everything I can on vinyl.. and am disappointed to have to buy CD when no vinyl available.. so I would be very keen to have recent DA stuff available on vinyl.. I have all the old stuff up to Darn Floor and Terry's solo albums on vinyl.
Something about when that needle hits the groove..

As fond as I am of vinyl, what I would really love is more big art. I really miss albums with multi-page inserts. I have Stonehill's Welcome To Paradise on vinyl and CD, and the CD insert doesn't remotely compare to that big newspaper-type insert in the LP. I even have Xerox copies of the inserts from Larry Norman's trilogy LPs, and I like to take them out and read them on occasion, even without playing the music. The inserts in the CD versions seem puny by comparison.

Sequencing Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

For me, some of what really makes records work over CDs are the internal construction. Take "Dark Side Of The Moon" for instance. "The Great Gig In The Sky" ends side one. "Money" begins side two. Tonally, "Gig" is absolutely an ending, going from all the sturm und drang down to just the piano and voice, almost down into whispers and moans.

"Money" is in every way a kickoff point, from the cash register clang-a-long to that famous, meaty bass line. Now, on CD, you suddenly have these two ends run together and the construction is far different. It's like a little death in the middle of the proceedings, and "Money" doesn't quite have that same mule kick when it goes directly in.

The same can be said for "Abbey Road" with the experiment of lancing together songs as suites. Sure, on CD it comes off as a grandiose capper for the recording (with "Her Majesty" as just an odd little stab at deflation) but on record, grouping the experiments between side one and side two provides a logic and purpose that, again, a 45 to 50 minute flat runthrough just does not do justice.

It's basically then my highest praise to say that most of the DA cds feel, to me, more suited to vinyl. I suppose it is me separating them out of this modernity and claiming that Terry's sense of sequencing is much more "classic rock" oriented, but in the best sense of it.

Well, I love "gettin' in the groove" as long as it don't involve needles! Tongue Big Grin

Why can't they simply add some extra stuff at the end of the CDs that is accessible by computer? You can print your own PDF files. If people wanted fancy glossy stuff they could size the files so you could order prints online or something.
