Re: Discography 12'' boxed set

Yes, I did think about whether to remove the hype sticker from the scan, but strangely, for me, I remember it really strongly from when I purchased the original cassette back in 1991, and being impressed that I was getting 76 minutes of music! So I decided to keep it. Nostalgia over purity! @negaitv...

Re: Discography 12'' boxed set

Thanks all. I’ve only just got back into vinyl and this wasn’t a cheap undertaking as the box itself was expensive as a one off, and I needed to fill in the gaps in my 12” collection as well. Still, I had a lot of fun designing the box artwork (particularly bringing the track listings together on th...

Discography 12'' boxed set

I had an idea a few months ago to gather the main UK 12 inch singles from the Discography era together, into an appropriately themed boxed set. Finally got it back from the printers today and really pleased with it. Thought I'd share where people might appreciate it! IMG_1722.jpg IMG_1723.jpg IMG_17...

Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...out May 7, 2021

I’ve only listened twice, but it’s more like a classical piece where there are themes that repeat but with different musical interpretations and a variations on a tune.

I don’t think there’s anything I would really describe as a chorus.

It’s interesting!

Re: Discovery 1994 - DVD/CD-Release

Really enjoyed seeing this for this for the first time in a while. Yes, the picture quality is crap and the sound could be so much better, but weirdly I found that part of the charm. And due partly to that, to the 90s songs and to the sheer fun of it all, I found myself full of nostalgia, reflecting...

Discography scans

Does anyone have or can point me to hi-res scans of the Discography cover, back and front? Ideally the LP version?

Thank you - any help really appreciated.

Re: Somewhere DVD

Just did a direct comparison of the NTSC DVD which I received last week, to my rip of the VHS, listening over a 5.1 sound system, and sadly the VHS stereo mix sounds way superior, with Neil’s voice loud and in balance when compared to the DVD. I tested on the DVD stereo track as well and same issue....

Re: Somewhere DVD

I do completely get that. I’ve just been getting back into vinyl and enjoying it for all the reasons you set out, so I’m not completely digital!!

Just ordered the NTSC DVD. Thanks for the link.

Re: Somewhere DVD

Yes, but I want to play it on my TV and surround set, not on my computer. I don't want to fiddle with ripped files and mediaplayers anymore. Been there done that. Modern TVs can play files directly from USB drives, and also from media servers on local network. I keep all my rips on a local server r...

Re: Discovery 1994 - DVD/CD-Release

Wasn't "Somewhere" released on DVD already? It was but the sound mix was weirdly much worse than the VHS. I digitised a copy of the VHS years ago (along with Discovery). Would be great to have a proper version of this too. I’m so excited about Discovery. Always hope that all crowds will b...

Re: funko Pops

Thanks. Just had an alert that both of them have cleared customs in the UK so hopefully will be quicker than I thought [emoji3][emoji3]
