OK: another DoFP question: there's the original mastering and then there's the late mastering. There are a few difference between them, the one that sticks out in my mind is on Side 2.The first song, "The Afternoon," ends with "Time to Get Away" and it melts into "Evening..." For the original mix, they sing (I think) "Evening, time to get away" more than once and it fades into the next song. On the original mix, they sing that three times. On the later mix, they only sing it twice.So (like nobody has anything better to do), how many times do they sing it on the Speakers Corner reissue? You see, from what I've read, the original mix may be better and it would mean I should look for a European copy vs. a reissue. Jerome has that original copy, if it's an import, maybe he can dig it up when not tired and give it a spin...Paul
Kenreau,what tone arm is on your turntable in the Nirvana album pictures?thanks,Laura
I for one thought the Analogue Productions reissue of Fragile (remastered by Steve Hoffman) was pretty bad when compared to my original 1972 pressing. It was one of the few times that I was very disappointed in a Hoffman remaster.--Jerome
The same tonearm I have mounted on my SOTA Star Sapphire. BTW, thanks for posting about the Nirvana ORG pressings. They are on my radar.--Jerome
Has anyone bought a recent new LP that has had gross defects with it and tried to send it back? I have 2 that are really bad and the 30 day window is closing in on me.

Paul,Tonight, with the baseball game on in the background, sound off, and nothing better to do, I listened to 3 copies of DOFP, side 2. Two are from 1967 (both USA pressings), and the 3d is the Speakers Corner reissue. They sing "time to get away" 3 times on all three copies. This little listening session also reminded me how good the Speakers Corner reissue is. Lots of detail and clarity--an excelllent pressing IMO. Listening to the Moddies is always a pleasant experience, and much better than the baseball talking heads. Laura
