Peshay gangster repress

Post by Richruffcut » Thu Aug 13, 2015 5:32 pm

Ive just got a copy of this and had a listen. It sounds great but in places it sounds like it fades from right speaker to left speaker for a couple of seconds. Is this how the original sounds or has anyone noticed it before. Ive never owned the orig and cant remember anyone playing it out (not that i would of noticed anyway) only ever heard it on poor sounding mix tapes.

I seem to recall these Reinforced repress's having issues but cant quite remember??

I think that's on the original press. It's definitely on the Jungle Book CD

Thanks for the info otbiz. I won't bother go looking for a decent original in that case. It is a weird one tho. I thought my cable had gone when i first heard it

The original 'Protege EP' doesn't seem to have the defect as far as I can remember. I managed to grab the repress for the Underground Software A-Side, and was a bit miffed at the sound cutting out. Interestingly enough 'Gangster' has the same sound defect on the 'Legendary Sound' CD which came out around the same time as the vinyl represses.

I've attached a rip which I made a while back of 'Gangster' - is a low bitrate 160 MP3, but still shows that section after the 'this is the sun' (????) vocal alright. :)
