SIng to God it's 90 minutes long, maybe it's too much for 4 sides of vinyl?

How about 3 pieces of vinyl, five sides with grooves, one side etched with the little man logo?
Hello little doggy,
My, you are a nice dog,
What did you just say then?
You could do some tricks! Oh, good, then will you show me?
My word that's a good one!
Would you like a cigarette?
No you can't, they're bad for you!

about 22 minutes per side would be alright.

I think the possibilities for good quality limited editions is great, as long as the records aren't re-released in another coloured vinyl or a slightly different picture disc. I won't buy stuff by Earmark, Back on Black and other places like them because they're nothing but Mickey Mouse collectibles.

I did buy the first three Venom albums on Back on Black, though, but for pure sentimental value.

I say bring on the Cardiacs limited vinyl!!!

So, they have Heaven Born on vinyl and cd... which is the 'proper' version with the best production, boffins?

CD is PROBALLY the newer masking, vinyl almost certainly the old.
The old is generally seen as better.
But I don't actually know which is true.

If I were buying from the shop, I'd go for the vinyl. The CD is going to be the fubar'd remastered version.

There hasn't been a vinyl press of the new master yet, assuming they've not pressed this specially.

I hear on the grapevine that there will be new vinyl.

Sorry :oops: I just wanted to say that the first Cd version sounds better than the second one for most people.

Apologies for being wet behind the ears on this, but i'm not so up on these things. What are the differences between the CD and LP mix for Heaven Born...?

I'm going to buy the CD from the store, alas i has no record player to put vinyl on, but it'd be interesting to compare the two. Are there CD/LP versions on youtube ?

I have the vinyl from the shop and it sounds pretty gnarly: mastered too loud at points. This may be cos it's a fairly thin bit of vinyl and has been hanging round from 92 though! Can't complain though: still one of the best records these ears have heard...
