They could have at least included a free pair of oven gloves to make it worthwhile.
UOTE="Willowman, post: 21250754, member: 13280"]Closer first press isn’t translucent. Or, at least, mine isn’t.
There is a whole stack of misinformation floating around about these records![/QUOTE]
Theres s hotch potch of info around the red ones... it was all down to the pressing plant. You can get first presses which are red, and some which are black. It really doesn't matter.... they all sound the same.
The original cover design concept was black on white, so there's some history behind it.
There are a few first pressing variations, both the vinyl and the sleeves.

What are you going to spin today in his honor (if anything)?
I had Preston on other day but will pull out Still 2xLP later today.
New Dawn Fades. It’s the one.
It's a cruel joke that the Eurovision Song contest final is actually on tonight...
It’s the Factus 25 pressing done by Rough Trade in the US 1980 that has the translucent purplish colored vinyl.
US RT used this formula for PC&L as well.
The first press of Closer in the UK was also red... It was purely down to the pressing plant, and had nothing to do with "mojo". You could also get normal black ones. The red Closers as with Unknown Pleasures are highly sought after not because they sound particularly different to a normal black first press, but purely because they're rarer. Save some money and get a black first pressing and you have the same result, from the same stampers.

I believe the US copies you speak of were more translucent brown rather than red. Likely looked purplish.
My comment was just stating that US Automatt manufactured a translucent (amber) Power & Corruption as well.-I Have One.
I have no clue on JD manufactures. Quite happy with my old US Qwest compact discs
Thanks though for the info, if I ever try to track them down.
The 2007 Closer vinyl was a disappointment. Digital remaster laid to wax @ 44
As to the formula used or being translucent think i'm in agreement. Mastering and recording of course are everything. I have a translucent AC/DC Back In Black Ludwig I still need to compare to a non.
posted in other thread but for those who haven't seen it:
new Hooky interview ...and still a band
not getting along....
The excerpts were the Lyon show. Euronews is in Lyon too. One of my favorite set ever!
He played both Substance albums.
All the current remasters were from 2007... however the US and UK remasters I think are different, at least as far as metalwork goes.. The US pressings had all the dead wax etchings where the UK counterpart didn't.
Correct, US 'old blue', cat number etc- packaging is beautiful however
I'm curious to know who and how the US records were mastered... They certainly weren't mastered by Frank Arkwright at Abbey Road like the UK one's were. I think the US pressings from 2007 run rings around the UK pressings, I actually sold my UK 2015 pressing of unknown pleasures to buy the US 2007 pressing. I think there's a difference between the US and UK pressings. The US sound better to my ears
Just a heads up, the red vinyl reissue of unknown Pleasures is released this Friday...... I pre-ordered mine a while ago, i'll add it to the collection but it likely won't get played.
Good reminder! I pre-ordered as well. I don't have this on LP, so I'm sure it will get a few spins around here.
They are releasing 're-imagined' videos of all the tracks on Unknown Pleasures to celebrate the 40th anniversary, the first was released today.
Here it is...
And there it was.
Removed for posterity
This record is already on Discogs..... Blimey, that didn't take long.. It was posted yesterday, before the official release date.
Joy Division - Unknown Pleasures
A lot of people received online orders yesterday. I took a look at it when I went to pick up Bruce this morning; it’s a lovely looking package. Tempted, but 2 copies already at home.
That's my copy arrived, Looks very smart. Don't know whether to play it or frame it.
