i take it the mute versions are worthless now? i hate those quiet CDs from time sof yore.

artdamages (artdamages), Monday, 18 October 2004 15:27 (fifteen years ago) link

id hold on to the old ones until secretly canadian reissues the odds and sods discs cuz some of the bonus material from the mute editions arent on the new reissues.

i found the mute CASSETTE reissues at the local store back at the end of high school. glad i'm gonna be able to get them on cd so i can more easily play them for other people.

listening to Trip right now for the first time. real stoked so far.

I had three of the Swell Maps CDs on Mute. I sold back two in a purge a few months ago, but Trip is the one I kept. Fine, fine stuff.

I pulled out ...Jane From Occupied Europe the other night because of this thread. Awesome. I should really listen to them more often.

Roy Williams Highlight (diamond), Thursday, 21 October 2004 23:34 (fifteen years ago) link

That was one of the ones I sold. Maybe I should have kept it though. I just never listened to it that much.

o. nate (onate), Thursday, 21 October 2004 23:37 (fifteen years ago) link

yeah, neither had I! Big mistake on my part though, 'cause at least the other night, it really hit the spot. It's got a lot of the instrumental/experimental pieces plunked down right in the middle of the tracklist, so it's an oddly flowing record. It's got a bunch of the proto-Sonic Youthy drone/strum-two-guitars-for-a-couple-minutes bits too..

I just ordered the reissues...the tapes are sitting in my mom's garage (along with a ton of other awesome/not so awesome tapes)...its been a long time. I want to be in a band that sounds just like them.

any takers?

I picked up the Electric Warrior Sessions double cd from my public library last weekend. Went to a cafe and glanced at the liner notes and read Nikki's essay about Marc's influence on his life. I may or may not get around to listening to the discs.

i swear i saw a swell maps thread get bumped yesterday

this is the strongest deja vu i've gotten in a while

Has anybody heard the Secretly Canadian remasters? I finally got the Mute Marineville at Xmas and I don't think it has been remastered in decades. Just thought I'd grab it while it was at hand relatively cheaply.
So would be interested in finding out if I am missing out on a great deal with the sound on those Secretly Canadian versions. Just don't seem to be very easily come by.
Was hoping thread revival might be word of new reissues or something.
