They have it at Amazon...
Although the sellers on their have it a little cheaper.
i copped it from juno.co.uk - recommended
the vinyl version lacks 4 tracks off the album and I don't know if it's just me but the mix sounds different...
Jesus H. Christ, the best songs ("Ultimate 144", "Gamin' on Ya", "Enjoy") aren't on there?!? Oh hells no.
Oh sh*t that's not good. Why have they done this arrghh!
But seriously, why have some tracks been dropped. The albums not much over an hour long? And why have the best tracks been removed?
cant belive letter c/o bronx aint on the wax..thats prob one of the best songs on the album...love that sh!t, not to mention all the other mad songs not on it..oh well..cant wait for the instrumental lp/s....
I got the vinyl for Christmas, and I don't know if I got a dodgy copy or what, but the sound quality ain't amazing. The last tracks on side B and D have really noticeable distortion on the vocals. Has anyone else noticed this???
It just sounds like IGD, but I know it isn't my turntable or cartridge, because I don't have this problem with any other records, and I'm using a fairly new and well respected cart. Maybe a coupleof plays through will sort this problem out.
The music is fire obviously though.
so...i just came across this page when searching for the vinyl online...as i mentioned in another post...this is the only album of PUTS that i need on wax still....i heard about the missing tracks...but is the quality really bad??? aka - is it worth buying still?? my gut says yes lol
The P on their worst day, sampled at 32 kbps over a webstream on an iphone under a couch cushion are still better than most cats pumping out WAV files at their best from a 5.1 surround sound system... so I'd buy it on wax. But there are sticklers for quality out there, so I'd understand holding off.
yea ill still get it...will pry hunt for a dec price tho
Thes explaining the reason for the low quality vinyl production... from this thread http://www.putsonline.co.uk/forum/topic.php?id=1606#post-12807
I bought the Vinyl when it dropped, but honestly I haven't even opened it because of the missing tracks, bad sound, etc. You gotta have it if you want a full discog collection though...
Thes One said: Yeah, I apologize for this.
I was supposed to press up the vinyl myself but I got swamped doing everything else, and in some ways the label was even dumping extra sh!t on my lap. The original deal we had with Gold Dust was for them not to do the vinyl, but when i got saddled with the production, the mixing, the artwork, etc - something had to give. Not enough hours int he day. So at the last minute it was either not do vinyl or let Gold Dust handle it. I passed it off to them assuming it would be fine, but my standards and your standards are different than those of people working at labels, understandably.
I never got test pressing to approve the vinyl and they just went forward with it without me hearing it, and honestly, I still don't have a copy of it. I saw it in New York and was immediately upset at the card stock weight of the outer cover, it looks cheap and is paper thin. I'm sure the mastering engineer who cut the vinyl f***ed the mix off, and with no one to answer to, they just went forward with it. If the last songs are distorting on any side, typically in the upper highs, it
s because it was cut to loud and the program was too long.
When you cut a record, the angle of the groove, or the circle the groove makes gets tighter and tighter as the needle gets closer to the center. This causes the distortion if it is cut at a loud level, whch he probably id because many mastering engineers equate loud with good. Which also means he might of compressed the sh!t out of it.
At the end of the day, the CD ahs the comic in it and was my main focus - i apologize for losing track of the chain of quality on the vinyl. I need an assistant bad. There really aren't enough hours in the day, but i'll make sure this doesn't happen again.
thanks for that SLC...thats a bummer...i have had the CD for a while...but ever since i have gotten into vinyl...i cant really imagine ever wanting to buy a CD again

Too true man, there is no rival to the sound quality you get from vinyl...
The only downside that I can see to vinyl is that you lose some quality everytime you play it due to Needle wear... Unless you get this bad boy
