When you say "inverted" is that a shorthand for "L and R channel are swapped"?
Yes L to R and L to R... curious and why?

ok thanks, it's me I'd added "not" by mistake but it confirms that is inverted like 2015 edition for example.

Re: The Concerts In China

I have in my hands the version https://www.discogs.com/fr/release/8384261-Jean-Michel-Jarre-Les-Concerts-En-Chine Besides, all these editions of the same year are excellent. Even if it is slightly shorter by a few seconds, I find it above... respectful of the original. With "similar" bookl...

Re: The Concerts In China

The poster that comes with the 2LP edition is great. It's a 24 inch by 36 inch fold out double sided poster with two poster designs on it. The one on page 2 of the new CD booklet and the one on page 4-5 in the new CD booklet. Pretty cool. I don't have the 2LP edition but it's cool for the poster......

Re: The Concerts In China

I just heard what you mean, it's quite obvious indeed... Here's the 1989 version: cic1989.mp3 And here the new master: cic2022.mp3 It' sounds like there's too much compression on it. Yes the compression is the problem and magnetic fields 2 is just limit.... like if the effect was applied on the las...

Re: The Concerts In China

Souvenir of China is completely failed but why? The "lead" synth, the whole melody crushed by certain sounds constituting the rhythm... The normal oscillation of the lead is also very marked as a result. No other edition does that. Just that ruins it all for me. Really a shame because the ...

Re: Oxymore album, october 21 2022

Otherwise, at approximately 2 minutes 52 seconds, do you hear a cracking sound which to me seems inappropriate? At 2 mins 51 secs there is a buzz sound, like a saw, that's def not a sound from the original and only seems to appear once in the remix. Does seem like an error. it's clearly a crackling...

Re: The Concerts In China

I suspect the poster is the booklet, or at least has all the things which are in the booklet too. On the official website we can see (I think) the poster which represents concerts promo poster ... I was wondering if the cardboard sleeves or even the inside of the double disc could not be used for t...

Re: The Concerts In China

A question about Vinyl vs CD edition...
Does the vinyl only contain a poster or also the booklet?

Re: Oxymore album, october 21 2022

About this mix, I'm finally disappointed because it seems "impersonal" to me. For me, a mix by an artist of a piece by another artist must both reinterpret the piece with the sensitivity of the mixer while respecting the original... but here I don't recognize anything from Brian Eno, this ...

Re: The Concerts In China

Possibly an unpopular opinion here: I really don't like Souvenir of China. I never choose to listen to it and always skip it if it appears when I'm listening to a JMJ album. I'd even make the effort to fast forward past the track in my cassette days. I like gentle, dreamy, melancholy JMJ music but ...

Re: The Concerts In China

If the quality of the master is there, then I think it's a good surprise. We had the right to many editions of different old albums with good and less good surprises. I take for example "Waiting for Cousteau" from 2014 or 2015 where Calypso 3 (end of the century) is missed on the fade out ...
