I missed that news. RIP John.

 

I first met you here, and my copy is now well-worn or well-loved.

 

Hah, it's both:

 

Phil_Manzanera_-_Diamond_Head_-_1975.jpg

 

and then I was surprised to find you here:

 

Bandstand 1972.jpg


Following your career led me to some treasures

 

Red,_King_Crimson.jpg

 

and some confusing moments

 

Ferrymind.jpg

 

and I'm glad you made it big, but really this seemed a long way from the story of Johnny B. Goode, too far for me:

 

Asia_-_Asia_(1982)_front_cover.jpg

 

and I never 'got' what UK was all about.

 

You featured on one of my desert island discs

and for this alone, and without counting all your other work, I'm certain you're in a rock'n'roll heaven.

 

R.I.P.

You mean from THE English band called New Order.  Just about the best band of the 1980's and came out of the sadness that was the end of Joy Division.
    Blue Monday is the biggest selling 12 inch single of all time and was only ever released as a single.   Even the album Power, Corruption & Lies used to have stickers saying - Does NOT Include Blue Monday.
 
  Awesome song and awesome band :thumb:


Apparently the packaging on the first release of the 12" cost more to produce than the selling price so they made a loss... A big best selling loss.

24 hour party people is worth a watch if you were watching Granada reports or heading out into the madchester scene in the late 80's early 90's. I obliviously went to the Hacienda during that time and had too much fun. Imagine that, a scouser drinking in Manchester and never feeling unwelcome.... Anthony Wilson was a very charismatic man who loved music. Martin Hannett a crazy recording genius then throw in New Order, The Happy mondays and a sprinkling of other bits'n'bobs.... Well it's probably worth a watch if you were into that kinda thing.....

I think you may find its an urban myth.

 

New Order's fifth single. A milestone, both by musical standards and by design standards. Sold over 1 million copies globally. But because at the time of release, Factory weren't part of the BPI, there are no reliable figures nor certifications or awards. 
Initial editions were released in March 1983 with die-cut cover and cut outs and a thick silver inner sleeve, designed by Peter Saville. 
Cover variations: Die-cut with cut-outs, die-cut without cut-outs, plain printed. 
Inner sleeve variations: Thick glossy silver, thin matte silver, thick glossy black or thin matte black. 
All bear the colour code, spelling "FAC 73 Blue Monday And The Beach New Order". 
There is a common misconception that Factory lost money on the release due to the design. The sleeve did cost so much that it actually denied Factory an extra profit of just under 1 UK Pence on each copy sold. But demand and production cost and timings meant that the sleeve became progressively more simple with each repressing.

Very interesting information 

I read on wiki that the band did not even proof read before going to print ?

 

Not sure what version or incarnation my album is but I have one with a New Zealand connection

I just finished reading "Substance" by Peter Hook. Recommended for the fans of New Order or just interested in the whole Factory, Hacienda, Madchester scene. Classic sex drugs and rock n roll story with many twats (Hooky didn't suffer fools). Many lessons about how not to run a club, a record label and bad record deals. From my read New Order members missed out on a fortune due to poor/no advice.

Hi FR that's definitely the 12" single.  For it to be an album it would need more songs or be longer, say 40 minutes, and almost always these play at 33rpm. Your disc would sound odd at 33rpm!

Yes if I'm reading your post right -you are correct @ThirdDrawerDown

On this particular record pressing from New Zealand 

It has on the record label the speed printed on it @ 45PRM (both sides)

And I play it at 45 as it sounds funny on 33.3

Those prices are eyebrow- raisers. I must check the condition of my copies. 12" and 7"

@Full Range you have it in a nutshell. Exposure is one of the greatest debut solo albums ever released. Drawing on elements of the final incarnation (to that point) of King Crimson and beyond, and then extrapolating the whole lot into the future. In the early eighties I used to make people listen to this album whilst at the same time telling them that it was the musical blueprint for the next ten years. Almost forty years later it remains a cutting edge, seat of your pants ride that never fails to reward the listener in new and unexpected ways. Not to be played to young people just starting to learn an instrument; the bar is set so high here it would only be discouraging.

@Full Range, after looking at some more of your posts in this thread, I'm beginning to think that you're my long lost musical Siamese twin. I've never lived in Glendale though when I'm at home I like to crank out a few Watts. And I've been considering a trip to Montreal.

Great, let everyone know I've rammed Dr John down your throat - @Luc takes much delight in mocking my old timers nostalgia playlist ! :(

It is getting on a bit this one Pete - bit of a mixed bag with Live albums (and old Dr John) but it's all about recreating the concert atmosphere rather than focusing on the sound quality constantly isn't it? ;)

      One thing I have learnt is that it doesn’t matter how good your arm TT or cartridge is, if you’re phono stage isn’t up to the task you are wasting money and forever chopping and changing. 
       
      This was already a great phono stage but this version has a much more natural and warm presentation. It bested my valve phono stages by a considerable amount. 
       
      It has XLR out too!
       
      I am actually really reluctant to sell this out of all the items I listed. It can get the most out of ANY cartridge hooked up to it. 
       
      I have all boxes etc.
