can anyone else hear two loud clunks around 19 seconds in 'The Dancer'? They sound - to me - like the electronic kick noise from the first 15 seconds or so has not been faded out properly.
I've got a copy as well and noticed that straight away ... I've ripped all of the tracks and edited them back to the track lengths/index points of the original UK album, so that these bass anomalies are now right at the intro' of The Dancer
. It sounds as though there are actually three bass/kick drums under the toms, which shouldn't be there. Presumably, these are on the source tape that has been used. I've also noticed the "Ohhhhhh"
is missing at the very beginning of Malpaso Man
, plus the album tracks tend to be running one to two seconds faster over their total duration. Minuscule details though ...
But, as expected, Scott's remastering is excellent, given the age of the source material. I wonder if this was perhaps a US copy of the album that was slightly different to that of the UK?
