Hello all!!

This is my first post on the forum. I've been a massive fan since 1986. Love everything apart from Loveboat! Still considering the reissue, but fear it may end up as unplayed as the CD has been!

Anyway...the vinyl reissues. They have been magnificent! The artwork, the presentation, the quality! Then the sound is so crisp. I haven't been able to stop listening to Chorus! This is one of my favourite albums by any artist, and it was a joy to rediscover this faithful old friend on vinyl for the first time!

However with I Say I Say I Say, I have noted an issue with the vinyl. Side A seems to have a fault with it. Always and I Love Saturday play fine, but the 3 tracks afterwards lose one of the channels and it becomes distorted. I copy my vinyls through a 24bit soundcard, set them up sonically, chapter the tracks, then put them on a MiniDisc to play in the car or on a walkman, when I'm on the go (These recordings are a real treat!) This made it painfully obvious there was an issue with my vinyl

I contacted Pledge, who sent me out a replacement straight away, but this proved to have the same issue. I then contacted the EIS and my issue has been passed onto BMG. I supplied them with some WAV images, and an MP3 copy of the fault

I'm just wondering if I was unlucky with what I recieved or if this is an issue with all the copies. It was suggested it may have been a problem with the original master, but a google search has revealed no other problems ever reported with this vinyl.

Any thoughts anyone ?

I will say that I listen to vinyl in vinyl format so I cant say Ive heard the issue you mention. But maybe you have a point in the overall mastering.

Listening to the vinyl still produces the problem. One of the channels goes to about a 3rd of the volume, then crackles. This happens on tracks 3, 4 and 5

I'm going to compare it my original I Say vinyl to see if I notice a difference in pressings

Here I am still wishing for Pledge options of Innocents singles picture discs, and even the standard LP reissues have reported problems.

Pledge could open so many options. But I dont know if the band wants to put out more.
