Hey Guys,

I've been looking for one for a while, ordered off Banquet records and Hmv where they say they have some, but they don't have any :/
Would someone sell me one? or link me to a place where they are?
Thanks

I've never ordered from them online, but they're a top notch shop in Camberley, where I waste far too much of my wages on a regular basis.

it's about 45mins or so from redhill probably..

http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=redhill+to+camberley&sll=54.162434,-3.647461&sspn=7.850656,23.554688&ie=UTF8&z=10&om=0

rather than ordering online, call them and they'll probably check to see if its in stock, it's only a small shop

Vaguely off topic, but this thread made me think of the question. Is the Racecar LP mastered any differently to the CD or is it just the CD audio thrown onto an inferior format?

I'm pretty sure Vinyl has a much warmer sound than CD? My Music IT tutor informed us that when the whole switch from analogue and vinyl to digital and CD's happened the was huge uproar? And that people who still buy and collect vinyl are mainly "audio purists"?

That's what I've been told. However, I may have grabbed the wrong end of the stick and your comment may be about what a pain vinyl can be(mainly switching over of sides, aaand the ease of damage). In which case good sir, I appologise. Embarassed

(This is not to you Rob, I'm sure you know all this... in fact you may even be able to correct it, my knowledge of this stuff isn't as far reaching as yours, but I think I have the basic facts right.) Although vinyl has a wider frequency response (as it's analogue not digital and doesn't have to compress the audio quality digital data in order to reduce size) unless the tracks were recorded on analogue gear (which I will bet my left bollock they weren't) or at super high quality such as 96kHz, putting CD quality audio on vinyl won't provide any of those extra frequencies, so in that respect vinyl isn't superior. Vinyl DOES however, have a different 'sound' (which some prefer) to CD, so it needs to be mastered in a different way to CD, and so that's what Rob was asking.

So Rob, I would guess that it was mastered for Vinyl - a lot of places offer mastering and vinyl production (I'm sure there's a better word for it, but I can't think of it) as a package deal - they make sure their customers know Vinyl mastering is important as a way to get more money out of them. The bastards. Justified, though.

Thanks for clearing that up Aidan.

I didnt think about the quality of the recorded audio.
