    Someone was extremely rude and confrontational in one of the threads. Mr. Diament had had enough. That was entirely our loss.

    Actually EricCuda is correct about the added part in Bone on Barry's master, I just checked the original RL vinyl version of the song and it doesn't have that audio anomaly at all nor do any of the other CD versions that I've heard (and excluding Barry's mastering I have 5 different CD versions of the song right in front of me to compare so this is an issue exclusive to Barry's mastering), if I could take a guess as to what happened I'd say it was a simple glitch in the system during the initial transfer and Barry either didn't know about the audio glitch until after the fact or he did know but didn't have enough time to fix it before having to send it to the pressing plants.

    Is that the "Plop" at the beginning?

    If that's the case then I'm positive you have BD mastered CD, have you done an EAC rip and checked the peak levels yet? If all of the peak levels are 87.0% (except for Shook me all night long which is 89.1%) then it's a safe bet it's a Barry CD.

    Sounds like you definitely have a Barry CD which is a true keeper of a CD for sure.
