    Exclusive footage from the outside of Abbey Road Studios showing what happened with the hard drive after Miles gave it back to the management.

    Yeah, the whole hard drive story is a little, let's say, questionable.

    Which is what they say the half-speed process should bring.

    No, this is a digital remastering process back in 2009. The 2010 Exile is there.

    Are the missing tracks in the MP3 format? Cheers

    I could only access the WAV's - there's one folder that I get an access error with and I am assuming that it's the MP3 folder. In theory it doesn't matter because the WAV's can be converted (and would be the better quality etc)...but still, it's not been a very slick operation for the downloads :)

    You're right. Wrong images. That's Marcussen in a mastering session.

    I have an old copy on vinyl and the 94 CD. on both of those Star Star sounds pretty much the same as the 2018. I have the Rega RP6 and Exact 2 cartridge. It doesn’t take much for tracking errors to show up with this deck in my experience, the last Bowie Box had me tinkering from time to time to get things just right.

    Black and Blue. It’s been mentioned earlier but this is muffled presentation. The 94 CD could be viewed as bright in comparison.

    If they cant get Black and Blue's sound right (one of the better recorded Stones albums), then I hesitate to get this set.

    May this be because of low volume level on new LP?

    No problem. I've been alerted to many great deals here myself!!

    I notice it's fund raising time here at SHF. Everyone who got the great Amazon deal should donate a few bucks, if they haven't already!!

    I’m not sure that it’s not right, more that of emphasis, turning it up brings more out of the songs plus my neighbours banging on the walls as an added bonus. The flipping thing has quite a lot of uncleanable ticks, clicks and noise throughout side 1. Exile had some annoying passages like that. I fear an Amazon return coming on if this continues.

    In your opinion. Easy, JP. Not everyone has your exact same system or ears. And this is just all for fun, not the marbles!

    A little more care like what they show in the unboxing video?

    I have an Amazon Prime CC that had amassed about $120 in rewards points (5% off all my vinyl purchases). So, I got the $179 deal, and used my rewards points on it as well. Add some tax in there and it came out to $72.44.

    Just received mine from Amazon. Everything looks good, except the top left rear of the box is pushed in and has a seam split, despite being impeccably packed. It even had foam bumpers on all the corners. The box it came in was intact, and is from Universal because it has the Stones tongue and logo on the box. Can't blame Amazon or UPS, it had to be damaged when it was packed before being shipped. I guess I'll contact the label and see if they will entertain sending a replacement outer box.

    Also, like many others have stated, no download card despite the fact it is stated on the outside and inside of the box that it does include one

    Please let us know what their answer will be. Curious how they handle these kind of requests.

    Since I didn't purchase it from the Stones store I am going to contact Amazon first. I shall report back.
