Yes, sure, Come So Far was quite properly produced because of Warner's Rhino label, I think. I had such high hopes for BMG label to push Chris and his management to do proper things and that' s what we get instead, just the usual mess and uncertainty with lots of promises broken and expectations not lived up to. They even couldn't make correct description of the vinyl edition at the web-shop: they say it is "double gatefold LP" and show 2 vinyl discs in the picture while text and tracklist says it is a single disc with 2 sides A/B, thus unclear if it is actually 2LP or not: https://chrisrea.tmstor.es/cart/product.php?id=33084elangelo wrote:exactly, Andrey, not to mention that "Come So Far, Still So Far to Go" was produced so much better
Hi Anneke, this is exactly what I was talking of. But 3 songs per vinyl side is common nowadays - they try to get more funds teliing us the quality is better if lesser number of tracks is put closer to disc's edge, thus less distorsion. E.g., in 2014 Edel Rec. released 12-track version of Fool If you Think It's Over 2008 compilation on 2LP with 3 songs per side, see my post here: http://www.chrisrea.nl/community/viewto ... =60#p12616ann268 wrote:Morning guys, If you check the site ChrisRea.Com out, you can see what is on the vinyls. It's the 12 songs from the CD, both 6 songs. Seems a little bit for two vinyls....see link: https://chrisrea.tmstor.es/cart/product.php?id=33086
Dear Anneke, 12" Maxi-Singles (so called mini-LPs) play at 45 rpm speed as 7" singles while full albums have 33 1/3 rpm speed. And they both have physical limits of keeping the highest quality considering the amount of music on each vinyl disc side, it is ca. 10-12 minutes for 45 rpm 12" and about 20 minutes for 33 1/3 rpm, though most single LPs have 22-25 minutes of music per side, and with over 30 minutes per side the quality is not even reasonable. That is why they use these calculations as marketing approach to sell double LP with 50 minutes of music instead of a single one. Sometimes it is even a full album on four 45 rpm vinyls, e.g. reissued Metallica classic albums. It does not concern general vinyl quality issues like mastering, storage or playback technical requirements, but just the (presumably) highest possible quality with the least production expenses.ann268 wrote:It's like the old mini LP or Maxi Single. Give it a fancy name. I rather like to listen to vinyl, so I bought that package. And the quality is mostly great if you keep your vinyl in good condition.
Hi! BMG press-release seems to be written by a person in charge of marketing (John Knowles the manager?) and thus may barly represent the actual contents of the album truthfully. Athena has some inside information sources (so do some other fans), but she (and others) still relies mostly on the same "official" information to put onto her YouTube channel. So she is surely not to blame for incorrect info.Munich-1983 wrote:All of that, what the press information by BMG or the announcement by Athenamats (on Youtube) did promise -- was not to hear.
No, it is long since clear he only relies on his own views production-wise after Blue Jukebox where Sylvin Marc was musical director and Kiadnan Quinn was the producer, let alone it was a large real band there and then, soon shrunk to Chris alone with some occasional helpers.Munich-1983 wrote:Does Chris not have any musical consultant, no producer, no musician who can help to make it sound lovely??
Yeah, I so agree, no talking to audience at all makes Chris's shows machine-like, which I find pretty rude towards the public.Munich-1983 wrote:Please Chris: do not only play 12- 15 songs nonstop and in the fast-forward-modus, but TALK to us! Take us with you on a journey of your mucial life und celebrate a atmospheric concert evening instead of jamming this cold new musical staff.
Words like these imply you better tell us your real name since I seem to know most of the biggest fans, who are active here and on social networks.Munich-1983 wrote:Best REAgards from the biggest fan ever.
I think aloud you will be interested in this or you will want to continue this way
