Re: Reissues project

If they do the singles box I think it would be more like the Duran singles box set, CDs in card sleeves. Jewel cased singles are a bit excessive nowadays.

Re: Yes & Elysium vinyl pressings quality

Re: Reissues project

Has that been normalised? I ask 'cause the '09 release looks quieter but the peaks are noticeably squashed compared with the new version.

Re: Reissues project

Yes sounds great so far, but… Anyone else notice the slight glitch in Building A Wall at around 0:11? :/ Is there a production error near the start of Building a wall?

Re: Reissues project

I think PSB are holding back the 'Yes' era demos for future PSB albums, I don't believe Neil when he said they are not of 'master quality'.

One missed opportunity is the extended mix of Home and Dry -

which sounds fantastic on the remastered vinyl -
What mix is this please? :D

Home And Dry (album version) was missing from the Release FL on iTunes, I've just checked the store and it's been corrected now.

"Complete", "Completely" or "Everything" will be incorrect as soon as they release something new afterwards. I'd keep those titles for future.
