it's somewhat of a daunting task but i'm slowly starting to add a few of my 90s faves to my vinyl collection which for the original pressings is shaping up to be pretty fucking expensive.
for example i've got 'Pulp - His n Hers' on the 2012 'music-on-vinyl' pressing and i'm absolutely delighted with it. Seems fully endorsed by Jarvis with an 8 page booklet worded by the man himself and a second lp of b-sides and live versions
on the flip side was just about to buy 'Spiritulaized-Ladies & Gentlemen...' repress on 'Plain recordings' and a quick glance at the discogs feedback is pretty negative
i didn't realise my copy of MBV- Loveless was alo on Plain recordsing til i just checked and this was Kevin Shields reaction
"Ownership and control is important, because if you don't own what you do, all sorts of stupid stuff happens to it, and people spend good money on garbage. For example, in America, Warner Bros. licensed Loveless and Isn't Anything to Plain Records, and they basically just ripped [the audio] off the CD and put it on vinyl [in 2003]. They did an awful, terrible job. It was done without my permission, and the sound quality was 100% wrong. It was a rip off to anyone who bought it. But I didn't know anything about it until they were in the shops. We actually got an injunction against it being imported into the UK at the time because it was technically a bootleg but, in America, Warners operate under their own law, so it might have been slightly legal in the United States."
I mean i'm no technical sound junkie but at the same time i don't just want a cd rip shoved onto a vinyl thats just pretty shite all round
anyway anybody else got any opinions on this?
