I'm so far out of the loop with most thinks Oldfield these days, but I note that on the Discogs entry for the half-speed LP, Universal have acknowledged that the 1st batch of vinyl were pressed on 130-140g vinyl and not 180g as advertised. As a result, a second batch was pressed, this time on the correctly weighted vinyl.
I pre-ordered mine via Amazon and having put it on a pair of scales, can confirm its 140g. Having said that, its flat and sounds quite superb, so I'm happy to keep it. However, is it true that Universal are willing to swap 1st for 2nd pressings, similar to the Incantations Deluxe edition CD swap? If they are, any links or pointers appreciated
