Actually someone pointed out in another thread that Dungeon doesn't come out until January, around the same time as Wanda's album.

Ya but at least we will probably see a good amount on ebay, for some of us that's our only way of getting them. Honestly the more the better, that could help keep prices resonable

This thread just pissed me off. No offence guys It has been most helpful, It appears I didn't research enough before jumping on this one.

I have a SFTRI release the record has a black label and no insert. I'm now in the market for the FIRST first release on SFTRI, I'll be happy one day lol

Picked up my copy from a record store in Guildford a few weeks back- It's the XL version. Got it for 13 quid or so.
Is the TMR re-release remastered at all? And if so, how noticeably different is the remastering? Just curious to hear some opinions.

The TMR re-release is indeed remastered from the original tape. The sonic quality is noticeably different if you're used to hearing the original mixes (you hear little creaks and cracks you couldn't hear before from time to time). The artwork on the TMR re-releases is brighter as well, more crisp.

Cheers for the info! Sounds like I shoulda held out for the TMR version, but then again i've had the XL cd for years- So you'll never miss what you've never had :lol:

Damn I love and hate this at the same time! I have 4 copies of this record already different versions ETC now I need another!

I hear the quality of the split colour is sub standard to the black 180G TMR version can anyone confirm? I don't have either as of this moment

I could be wrong but is likely none of the vinyl masters most likely the same master as the CD version of which I know nothing about.

Edit: Just Looking around and TMR don't sell the album on CD, so I say It would be pretty likely it is the same master as the V2/XL CD version

The vinyl came with remastered MP3s so I'd check the release date at iTunes. TMR may have provided iTunes with the updated version used for the vinyl reissue.

Good comment! I am intrigued.. When I have the album in a few weeks, and if I can find a point in the LP I can distinctively here a difference, I'll check on iTunes using the 30 second preview.

Edit: Scratch that looks like it is the XL version as I suspected "Released: 15 June 1999 ℗ 2001 XL" from iTunes

Yeah, I kinda thought the mp3's from the download card sounded exactly the same as the old CD mixes.
