    At last.... Amazon have Blue Lines, Protection and No Protection up for pre-order on vinyl with Universal.

    If they are pressed as well as the amazing recent reissue of Mezzanine - which sounds amazing on LP - we are in for a treat.

    I'm waiting for Heligoland reissue which will probably be out in another 10 years or so :sigh:

    I don't understand why their titles take several years to reissue... Portishead (for example) reissues are very frequent :confused:

    To be fair there was a Blue Lines box set thing a couple of years ago, but it was very expensive. I'll get this one.

    It looks like the first reissues are available already (They were due in December, but brought forward)

    100th Window still due in November.

    U.S. Amazon still lists Blue Lines as having a release date of December 2.

    Here's the email I got for my order...

    Hello,

    We are pleased to report that the following item will dispatch sooner than expected:

    Massive Attack "Protection [VINYL]"
    Previous estimated arrival date: December 06 2016 - December 08 2016
    New estimated arrival date: October 28 2016 - November 03 2016

    I got the same one for Blue Lines
    If you go to amazon UK, they seem to be available now, or very soon, anyway....

    Just cancelled mine. I think Vinyl has just passed re-release maximum tipping point. As much as I would like these, I definitely have 'vinyl fatigue'. I guess that leaves more for the rest too you.

    Thanks. I had a look at the link. Where does it say that this is a new 2016 remaster?

    Anyone know why they aren't reissuing Heligoland? Man, I'd love to get that on vinyl!

    My Amazon order for Protection still says "This title will be released December 2nd"?
     
  17. johnnybrum

    johnnybrum Forum Resident

    Yes, I received another amazon email, confirming that December 2nd is correct, after all !

    If I get another email, I'll keep quiet, as I'm just creating confusion :rolleyes:

    Yep, that's the Sean Magee/Abbey Road cut pressed at Optimal. They did three pressings I think, all from the Magee lacquers.

    This does sound fantastic, unlike Protection on vinyl which is bested by the CD. Should be recut like Mezzanine as a 2LP, 27m22s is too long for SIDE A.
     
  20. I wouldn't mind another copy of Blue Lines - my original still sounds good but is showing it's age. I usually play the Japanese mini CD's these days, I cherish those originals.

    I thought Protection was still in print, I bought a copy a couple of years ago.

    Yeah.....I bought a copy of the vinyl a few years ago through Amazon......never been entirely sure as to whether it was some sort of inferior reissue. I don't know how to tell.

    Ok.....many thanks......not sure how I can tell if mine is that same reissue?

    I've actually just been looking at all the discogs issues.

    Any info in the deadwax you can help me with or are there other ways of telling?

    Id need to check when I get home from work but I think mine had a small "Electrospective" sticker on it.

    There were a few lp's and cd's put out at the time in the series I've got The Chemical Brothers "Exit Planet Dust" from the same reissue programme.
