  2. Where we are now: The site is back up and running! The character set encoding issue has been fixed so old posts should now look ok. I am currently working on themes/skins etc and I will be deleting the temporary green skin very soon as it has many issues. I will do a very quick variation on the stock blue skin first just to get a light-grey background and san-serif font, and I will set this as default. Later this week I will hopefully add a professional third-party skin in pfm colours (life is way too short to do this crap myself, and I've found one I really like than needs next to no tweaking). We are getting there slowly...

  3. May I please request people check and update their email address if it is out if date. I ask as I’m getting countless bounce errors as the server fails to send notifications through etc. I’ll eventually figure out how to send these to a black hole somewhere, but it makes sense to address it at source as quite a few folk are obviously not getting the thread and conversations notifications they have set in their preferences.

  4. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Rant by Ian Hunter (& the Rant Band) from 2001.
    Awesome album, and still going strong at 78!

    Everything Eric Bibb released only on CD.

    2 v N by Steely Dan. The original vinyl release goes for silly money.

    'Up' by Stanley Clark-if you can't afford to have a world class bassist come to your house, this is a good second best Someone may say 'Yes you can get it on vinyl', but I couldn't find it

    John Coltrane - Complete Live at the Village Vanguard - AAA, Analogue Productions style. It would probably stretch to 8 or 9 LPs, so I’ll start saving my pennies now.

    Kyle Eastwood, Paris Blue. Just some very listenable music.

    Definitely exists, I know as I have it! A few copies on Discogs, not cheap for a nice one, but it is definitely a thing.

    I had a copy and it is a lovely quiet flat pressing, though to my ears it sounds just the same as the CD (i.e. very good indeed). I used to use it to tune my deck to the CD player, but once I realised how much it was worth I let it go. I’m perfectly happy with the CD!

    Care to part with it, Tony...hmmm? ;)

    (Is it of similair pressing quality as other Factory Durutti Column LPs?
    ie, not great?)

    I've got that on vinyl, and the The Together Mix 12". Pretty sure it's not a promo.

    eta - Discogs says it came out on vinyl.

    I’m far from complete on DC (I have about 6 or the albums) but I really like it so wouldn’t want to shift it. I really like the mastering and pressing quality of all the Factory stuff I have, but as ever with ‘80s pop/rock you need to find copies that were initially bought by people like me who dropped the vinyl straight into a Nagaoka inner to protect it from inevitable damage from the hard card inner. Obey The Time has a known issue, at least I've heard several people report it, and that is a jump/stick on the last track on one side. I haven’t played my (absolutely mint) copy for a while but I always remember it having it.

    (...if you do find another copy 'though, I would snap it up! Their albums seldom turn up around here in Dundee, not mainstream or obscure enough for the visiting record fairs, alas.)

    Yup, I seem to remember a pressing flaw on mine.
    You've got me looking at the Factory Too CD reissue (where I spotted the TG&OM reissue I've just posted about)

    The only problem with that though is that they don't fit the lp format, most being around an hour long track. Even Aquatic with track 1 being around 27 minutes is pushing it for the format.

    Good point. Yes I agree, 17-20mins max per side.
    This is fairly typical for me dreaming before considering practicalities.

    Yveski In the sky......

    I would like those late steely dan albums and the last two Boston lps
