Speaking of TAAB, I just discovered this Spanish album which is older than the Tull album and the cover is also a newspaper Cool

^ If these are as good as A Passion Play is, then Steven hit another homerun on remixing for vinyl. I am not a Gentle Giant fan, but has anyone heard his remix on Power/Glory vinyl??

^ Great website, thanks for sharing Thumbs Up
I can't believe I read the entire article, I only listened to this album once LOL Curiously, I saw a quite cheap copy of Wilson's remix the other day, good to know it's a very decent one... I might return to buy it Wink

A great website I have been visiting past few months, started earlier this year, just realized I never mentioned it here....my bad vinyl buddies!!

Excellent information on labels, cleaning and he just posted his JTull-Aqualung vinyl shoot out.....You can read the results, no spoiler here LOL.

I really enjoy this site for all things vinyl records.

Another reason to prefer vinyl LOL
Good to know it's a decent album, the reviewers didn't seem very optimistic about it... they probably listened to the full CD version Tongue

The US version is Yellow, Red, Grey, Green.....picky I know, but hey it's my vinyl collection!!! LOL.


Blue, Orange, Green and Red is my Japanese press colour configuration. Embossed as well.
It is a good album (3 stars). But this is Genesis, and regardless of one-eyed Prog fetishism, it is a good album. Early 'cross-over' is an apt description, but cross-over of what ?? I'm starting to be part of the anti-label crowd......

What I did not realize until reading the liner notes is Billy Sherwood plays bass on this album, he also engineered and helped mix the album. Which by the way is fantastic on vinyl....
Side 1 is about 28min long with maybe 6mm leadout space, Side 2 is about 27min.....The low end does not suffer at all, and I have the digital version, supposedly nothing is lacking on digital, but the vinyl version is as good if not better sounding, no sibilance at all that close to the end. Bass guitar, kick bass and synth/organ sounds are nice and deep, full sounding mix too.

There are some nods to RtF in the songs Tranquility and Diamond Eyes, along with Juggernaut make up two of the bright spots on the album. Diamond Eyes is the longest track at 10min+ complete with hammond organ....

I like it very much.....Clap
Yay Jose    
Great album indeed, especially since they (allegedly) left off some of the 'weaker' tunes for the vinyl issue. Nothing wrong here, as far as I'm concerned - superb album. Pretty much faultless, for me, although I don't think much of that lyric " One day, you may find, life's not, what you had in mind "...... Sounds a bit nasty to me......But they're only lyrics......
