I wished for it and it happened!  A swirl!!!  Or at least a smudge where the colours are blended together... ;)  The sample picture resembles mine, so either they're all like this or that copy got slipped into sleeve no. 391 of 500!

A thing of beauty, still?  Definitely.
Much hope of getting back what you paid for it?  Not for a while, I think.
Any danger of my 24-year-old needle getting anywhere near it?  I think I can resist the temptation.  It's now sitting beside the excellent 12-inch Guilty I found in Oxfam a few months ago, which has survived so far...

Time to upgrade the needle then. :)

Such old needle can be considered a lathe knife. Please bring it to your nearest police station. :P

There are lots of choices for upgrade. For example cheap AT95 or better AT120E or Ortofon OM5 / 10 or... lots of others.

But what's the difference between this file and the one from the Isles of Wonder CD?

None!

Only one version of this track has been released in my opinion. The vinyl, the Cd and the "live" one are the same!

The only difference is the format  ;)

More likely to buy a new turntable when the time is right - only such circumstances haven't arisen these last ten years... :/   I take pity on new aquisitions, but the poor things in the rest of my collection know what they're in for on the rare occasions I get the stereo out of the cupboard. ;)

Thought you might like to read this .

Ordered my copy from Universal on the 8th and had a confirmation email later that day .
Yesterday the 10th I had an email telling me my order had been cancelled .
I phoned Universal and spoke to the manager called Diane, who told me .....
"We pressed 570 copies and they have all sold out so thats why we cancelled your order.. sorry" .
If we make any more we will let you know.

I also sent an email to Universal head office who replied with, "if we press any more you will be contacted" .

So there is 570 copies out there !!!!

Universal . Don't you just love em .
