Default Neapolitan Metropolitan Vinyl Set

As promised, I added images to this vinyl set over on discogs

http://www.discogs.com/viewimages?release=1199902

I included the entry from the booklet about Late! The picture is the dude from the Commitments film. Dave is strange!

Must be a Brit thing, I have no clue who they are. Anyone else stumbling in the dark with me?



Is this a thread foul? You be the judge.

Anyone that has this and has heard it, can you confirm it's the same source as the tape, and so roughly the same quality?

I have both tape and vinyl. Just awaiting delivery of a new stylus and then I'll let you know.

Ha! I'll let you take this one. My Pocketwatch is framed, didn't really fancy having to open it up. While you're waiting on your delivery, I'll definitely give the vinyl a listen and compare to the MP3 I have of Pocketwatch.

I have both.

They come from the same source, but my vinyl version sounds better than, my cassette version of the song.

Thanks, I assumed it was the same source (ANA(2)) since it was made by SM like the tape. No surprise the Vinyl sounds slightly better though, it's a better analog medium than tape, better frequency range.

And one slowly oxidizes a little more every day while the other doesn't.

Cool - done. I don't need to pull the tape, I mastered a CD from the original, which is now sealed in an airtight box packed inside an anti-static hard disk bag with a half dozen hard disk moisture absorbers
