  1. Maybe he’s not aware of the fact that the spine is indeed upside down. I’ve never seen that before, certainly not on two titles in a row. I’m sure Shane wants constructive criticism as well as the acolytes.

  2. You make a good point, I didn’t think about that.

    How would you rate the packaging of that Stealers Wheel product sitting next to it?

  4. I’m actually more interested in how he would rate the Donny & Marie LP directly under it . . . :whistle:

    The Stealers Wheel packaging was more like a 7.5 out of 10. Entirely because of the plastic sleeve inside. It ended up creased during production/assembly, so that by the time I received it, the disc was "stained" on the non-label side, so that wrinkles from the plastic sleeve were imprinted on the disc surface. I sold that copy and bought another one that didn't have that problem. I bet switching to a cloth-like inner sleeve (like the ones that MFSL uses) would've solved that problem.

    Craig.

    EDIT: In case you're curious, here is the listing on SHF classifieds that I used to sell that "stained" disc, including photos of what I'm talking about:

    It does a great job as a coaster, preventing my cold beer from putting a water ring on the side table.

    Is there even such a thing as the "correct" orientation of lettering on the spine? I look through my collection and see plenty of both orientations. Who is "correct"? (I couldn't give a rat's a**e).

  10. I'd guess 95% of my CDs (a 5-digit collection) or more have the opposite of the spine orientation found on the Gene Clark SACD. It's an easy enough fix when shelving them spine out. You just have them inserted backwards on a shelf. It's not a real problem except for OCD collectors.

    Holy **** does the Gene Clark SACD sound incredible. I know this album up one side and down the other. Never heard it anywhere near this great.

    It’s always nice to find an Intervention release on the doorstep. There’s not a lot to say about the 100% Fun LP that hasn’t been said dozens of times before about prior releases. It’s just another impeccably carried out great sounding reissue. The formula here is so predictable it’s getting boring, in a good way.

    I tried to meet with the folks at 4AD when I was in London twice in the past three years. They would not take the time to even talk on the phone with me.

    I did think about doing that very thing, but the run times were such that Ryan believed (correctly) that we'd get a killer cut on the original repertoire on two sides. And then I just thought it would be fun to run the extras at 45 RPM, easy fit and easy cut.

  22. The Gene Clark Sings For You release, Mike Nesmith's RCA remasters, Cowboy re-releases, a new Poco 2fer SACD, IR's White Light and Burrito Deluxe SACDs...so much fine country-rock being (re)released this year. :cool:

    Getting near, time for a beer...:cheers:

  23. Given that I use CD booklet cases to save space, I don't even see CD spines anymore.

    Squier and White Light were done around the same time and inadvertently have "upside down" spine text. I discovered that Squier, which came out months ago, was done this way only after looking at White Light and then pulling Gilded Palace for comparison. Since the fix (flipping them to store them) is so easy I don't see this as an issue. If I do a reprint I'll do my best to fix it. And future SACDs should be oriented correctly.
