    Old thread closed, here is a new one:righton:

    Finally managed to find this album on US vinyl and am stunned how good it sounds on headphones. Love it that NY didn't opt for the average soundtrack routine - putting track after track - but decided to mesh it all up into this gigantic ambient Americana thing.

    Hardly a coincidence that Earth's 2005 album was called "Hex or Printing In The Infernal Method", used vintage photos from the Old West and a panoramic Americana sound replacing the trademark drone.

    My copy still has the old price tag, "32,90 Gerrrrrman Marrrrks". Little wonder this thing didn't sell because in 1996 that was like: "Really? For a vinyl album?" (Average records did cost 17 - 20) Unfortunately I didn't react when this got kicked out for 10 DM in the late 90's:cry:

    Questions: As I understand it both - German and US originals - use the "CB" master but only the American edition has a textured sleeve. Are there sonic differences? Because the US pressing is great, really quiet.

    Bull Moose is doing a preorder on the reissue, coming out in March!

    I bought it on US vinyl when it was new, and I think I played it all the way through twice. So at least my copy is still in NM condition. :)

    Anyone have any info on whether this will be an Archives release? Perhaps part of the Special Release Series like the Paradox soundtrack?

    Never heard of the label releasing this and am a bit skeptical.

    My original pressing is one of my favorite used-store finds. Got a NM copy for $19 long after it sold out.

    Vapor records is Neil’s record label, and I believe they are released through Reprise. Buy with confidence!

    My copy according to Discogs is on the Vapor label but states that it's 'unofficial'. It's from 2011. Doesn't match any official releases. Not sure when I picked it up. Good news that there's a re-release coming.

    Such a shame that he didn't include the actual title song on the soundtrack, only available on an ultra-rare cd single promo. It would have made a great bonus on a 7" with the vinyl re-pressing, but that's Neil for you.

    You have at least one record from this label in your collection already.

    “This ol’ hair o’ mine... well it’s like barn hay” Intrerestingly this line is dropped in Neil’s Paradox movie soundtrack.
    Looking forward to this reissue!!

    So much acting depth in that film - even the bit parts. Most people picked Iggy and Billy Bob in that scene, but did you know the 3rd “trapper” is Jared Harris aka “Layne” from Mad Men...

    I had a bootleg of this and it didn't inspire me. I suppose I won't be able to resist this if official and reasonable price. Hopefully it will be pressed at Pallas.

    Cool, I didn't really know about this. I'll have to rectify that!

    There is also a new CD coming ... gee ... wouldn't it be great if the promo single Theme from Dead Man was included on the new CD ... but that would be too logical ...
