  3. Listened to Side of 1 Brave New World on headphones. I kept hearing a slight static in the far right channel. Could be my cleaning method (Spin Clean-->DIY vacuum clean). But not distracting. Overall sounds good. Shirley's mix is very dense and narrow (to my ears, anyway); the 3 guitars + bass are competing with each other but the drums and Bruce sit nicely in the stereo field, I think. Can't wait to listen more.

  5. Just a side note, do any of clean new records? I gave Wickerman a quick listen right out of the box and it seemed fine. I've always cleaned new records, with very rare exceptions, if only to help de-static. Then pop it fresh and clean into a MOFI sleeve. These Maiden thick cardstock sleeves are cool, but very tight fit if you want to use your own inner.

    I clean them with Okki-Nokki machine and solution of theirs. I used solution based on an alcohol and did not wipe it properly, causing some vinyl - inner sleeve (MOFI) reaction. I clean them to take the static and the gunk off.

    I clean new records in batches of a dozen or so, and yeah then bung it into a poly sleeve. I use a Knosti with a DIY mixture, which is a bit of hassle to set up for only a couple of records. I usually find it does make a difference to surface noise. I use tumble dryer sheets to wipe over the vinyl if it has static issues.

    I've just received the UK Parlophone reissue of The Final Frontier (cut by Chris Bellman). I based my purchase off the back of youtube rip which sounds a bit clearer than the original and HD tracks version (rip quality was a bit questionable but hey ho, it's youtube).

    Having put this under the microscope on my system I feel the mastering is of the same standard as Dance of Death, perhaps slightly higher. Better clarity, soundstage and dynamics. These Maiden remasterings are all very consistent in their sonic characteristics, compressed bloat is reduced, cymbals have plenty of ting, snare has more snap, vocals have extra rasp and guitars open up rather than float under the surface.

    The packaging and artwork on this reissue is fantastic, the inside gatefold contains some cool sketches, and has printed sleeves with lyrics.

  13. @DoF , your photos here have inspired me to get more the of 7" singles. On Amazon, at least, a few are getting up there in price and low in stock. I stopped at the 7th Son singles; in all honesty, aside from some early B-sides, I'm mainly interested in the art. When I was a kid in the 80s, a fellow Maiden fan's older brother had some import singles and of course I drooled over the Derek Riggs art. Nostalgia is a powerful affliction..

  15. A couple were $20, and one is temp out of stock; hopefully truly temporary!

    I'm finishing up the new Dance of Death LP. At the beginning, I wasn't terribly impressed. The first songs still have the compressed sound that I've always hated: vocals cut out, and a wall of guitars suddenly comes up to fill in the sound. Makes me think that compression is built into the mixes. But by the title track I was captivated. Just now I've gone through sides 3-4. I will never listen to the CD again. This has confirmed what I've always felt, which is that this album is an unsung masterpiece. I feel this Bellman-cut LP really does it justice.

    I didn't think much of DoD when it first came out but am loving the new LP. This is actually a great album although I still don't like Journeyman.

  19. I have his reissues of Sabbath, Ramones, Van Halen (2010ish); all stellar and clearly done with reverence.

    I`m playing Flight 666.One side is all I have time for anyway.
    I spun Brave New World and really enjoyed it.

  21. Listening to Dance again makes me appreciate keeping Janick in the band. Steve's riff style has little changed in 40 years (variations of i - VI -VII), and having contributions from Adrian and Gers is very welcome. I also like his solos.
