[…] on pink & black ‘marbled’ vinyl. Anyone who bought the Sophisticated Boom Boom orange and black limited edition will know how good these dual colour pressings can […]


Apparently these coloured pressings are already sold out at some local record store suppliers! Glad was able to get one here at SDEs shop today – thanks Paul!


Really hoping Fan The Flame (part 1) gets a stand alone vinyl release too.

Paul .. before I consider buying this, and other vinyl, can you please explain something for me? With cds I generally know something about the music before buying ie if and when it was remastered and, if i’m lucky, who remastered it .. yet what we get here is that it’s being reissued on vinyl.

Does the simple fact that it’s appearing on vinyl automatically lead to great sound quality?? In the past I had a lot of vinyl albums that didn’t sound that great. But generally with new vinyl like this one, there’s no info of any remastering or mastering(?or whatever’s done) for vinyl .. can you clarify if there is a process that’s used on all vinyl to guarantee top notch sound, or do we simply have to take a chance??

Very confused and would appreciate your observations. Thank you ..


It would be taken from the same source as the doa boxset. Which sounds fine. Cheers

This was perfectly mastered for the boxset where it was included on clear vinyl. The sound is perfect. This one just has a different color but if the same masters are being used the sound is fantastic.


Any chance to get these albums reissued on CD too???


Fantastic stuff – SBB is a brilliant album! That they released four singles from it and still the urgency and growl of ‘Absolutely Nothing’ and the dripping in melody and melancholia of ‘Far Too Hard’ remained as album tracks is testament to what a mighty fine debut this was. Anyone thinking DOA started with ‘You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)’ is seriously missing out.

The black / orange is perfect colour for the vinyl too. Loving these DOA reissues – keep ’em coming!


My favourite of their albums.


very nice! ordered from somewhere else yesterday, didn’t know you would carry it as well.
beautiful though!
