Re: ETK, DL, Cobra vinyl reissues

Are these not just the 1972 reissues from a few years back? Apparently they were very poorly done, the groop had no input and the label mastered the albums direct from the CD:

So unless it's something new, probably better just to seek out second hand copies of the original pressings.

Yup, it does say 1972 Records right there. So, a rip-off. Any Cobra vinyl that lacks the 16-minute "Blue Milk" is a counterfeit and a travesty.

Hope Tim gets around reissuing the old stuff on vinyls in the future.

I was sadly a victim of this. lol

I never had a vinyl Stereolab record before and I was so excited to find the only one at a record store! It was Mars Audiac Quintet. I saw the 1972 when I got home, thinking of the complaints about the pressings and I initially thought that it wouldn't be bad, I was wrong. I haven't even played records that much in my lifetime, but the tracks sound as if they're actually mp3s. A friend of mine played a different LP and even the difference between the two was clear.

Oh and here's what the "booklet" looks like

Yep, that's it.
