RE: (TV) Marquee Moon Vinyl Re-Issue

All I know is I paid my money over two months ago and 
that the original release date was early-mid Jan.

What I'm still puzzled by is whatever happened to the re-released 
remastered CD of MM that was supposed to happen 18 months ago?!?

Hope the March 6 "release" is not delayed also.

Leo---who just bought a new needle, cartridge, and belt**
--don't want to listen to Marquee Moon tunes at only 98.54%
of their actually recorded speed.  :>)

PS:  As discussed a couple of years ago on the List, 
even a Japanese (mint condition)  vinyl copy of this album
 for some reason is not very good ---very low recording 
levels--so I'm looking forward to the 180 gram.  

Philip has commented on the static on a couple of tracks 
of the cd of MM , and then there's the fact in 1986? 
they did a lousy job with the equalization, modulation[?], 
resolution, etc. of the cd version.

Subject: (TV) Marquee Moon Vinyl Re-Issue

Does anyone know anything about the upcoming (March 4, I believe)
re-issue of Marquee Moon on 180g vinyl?  It's being put out by a small
specialty label in San Francisco by the name of "4 Men With Beards". 
Here's what one website says about the album/re-issue: "To call it Punk
Rock is like describing Dostoevsky as a short-story writer... it's hard
to conceive of a world without MARQUEE MOON being part of it... a
revolutionary album! Exact reproduction on 180 gram vinyl with original
artwork including lyrics and memorabilia. with detailed liner notes by
Michael Layne Heath. All-analog mastering from the original master
tapes."  artist Television
title Marquee Moon
format 180 gram LP (gatefold sleeve)
catalog number 4m501
upc code 646315 150117  Of course, I no longer own a turntable so
purchasing it would not do me much good.  Nonetheless, it would be very
interesting to know just how dramatic an improvement over the existing CD
they were able to produce. - Steve Steve Rovnerserovner@mindspring.com
