5.0 out of 5 stars At last, disc 2 plays PERFECTLY..., 26 April 2013
This review is from: All Through The City (with Wilko 1974-1977) (Audio CD)
Dear all DrFEELGOOD aficionados,
i can confirm that on the new (2013) set there is the following number on all printed discs :
50999-958040-2-6, so although looking quite the same, it is a different (new) release.
But MOST important, i have just listened again (with headphones) to both discs 2, and , DEFINITELY, on the new one,
the volume is decent/correct/fine, and no more defects, not a single one.
Okay we have to buy it again, but now you can buy with CONFIDENCE !
Thanx but no thanx to EMI, but at least we can indulge in aural orgasm while listening to 'Stupidity' live.
Take care,
Stephan

I've got the re-release (same disc number as above) and there seems to be problem with half of the Stupidity tracks. 33 seconds (or so) into 'She Does It Right', the stereo image fades in the right ear and doesn't recover for the rest of the album; it's subtle but perceptible (my wife confirmed). Having never heard the album proper, I wasn't sure if this was an issue with the live recording but a listen on Spotify doesn't reveal the same problem. I can't imagine it's just me but I'm probably going to send it back and try a replacement.

Charlie,
thanx for your feedback, which certainly made me listen again much carefully with headphones, and certainly you're right !! There is some 1 second (at 33 seconds exactly) stereo "hesitation" which, even if it is almost peanuts compared to the unlistenable previous pressing, IS distracting/disturbing. So what could i do except to search for my perfect condition vintage LP and put it on the turntable.
And i'm sorry to say my friend (i mean what you don't know doesn't hurt you),
but the vinyl plays so PERFECTLY it hurts. Not a defect, a glitch, a nano second trouble with the initial recording, just a pure bliss to listen. So let's be realistic, to even hope EMI will fix it a second time, is unrealistic, and the main reason i HAD to tell you the 'truth' is that you will not wait for the replacement with much anticipation, because it is quite sure there will be '33 second problem' on 'she does it right' on all discs 2 of this new release. I want to add that 'she does it right' is the last song on side 1 on the LP, and that all 6 following live tracks (side 2 on the LP) are from another concert. And i must admit, the problem just striked me at this very moment, i am not sure the other 'Stupidity' tracks after it also are spoiled. But as you proved you really have a sharp ear (and your wife too !), probably they are, even if slightly perceptible.
Take care !
Stephan

Thanks for the follow-up Stephan. Saves me returning the set to Amazon. Actually my hearing isn't that good but the glitch is clear through headphones. It's there for the remainder the 'Stupidity' tracks; the Sneakin' Suspicion tracks sound fine. Oh well, still good value for money; I guess I live with it...

I don't want to open another can of worms but is it just my copy, that on disc 1 has a slight dip in volume about 1 minute 15 seconds into Going Back Home? feedback would be much appreciated :)
