Eagles re-release 'Hell Freezes Over' LP

Recommended Posts

Sorry for the thread necromancy.. but

 

https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/product/B07MCXWP1M/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

The original Geffen repressing is out again. Even though I got the Simply Vinyl repress, I am getting this one :D (two actually) and shipping is free if you are a Prime member - I just got a Prime subscription for streaming Grand Tour so WOOT!!!

 

Run.. don't walk!!

 

I tried seeing if JB would carry this but nada. 

 

On a hunch I started looking for more OOP titles - and I found King Curtis Soul Meeting and Oscar Peterson Trio - but these seem to be European bootlegs :(

Careful - there are already significant concerns with the pressing quality on this new one.

There is talk of a recall on the first pressing run.

Can you post a link to discussions regarding pressing quality?

 

As soon as I read DoggieHowsers posts I bought a copy.

It would be bad form to link directly to another music discussion forum from our own (especially from me!), but if you use Google, and type in this exactly (ie. copy and paste it), it should appear :  "Eagles's album Hell Freezes Over Remaster".

 

8 pages, but lot's of opinions.

Hi. Interesting post. Can I ask what is bootleg?  Does bootleg mean fake? Not sure if my version is fake or not?  I think it’s simply vinyl version? Regards, DL

Hahaha never even thought of that. Found the thread though. I just saw Chris Bellman cut the lacquer and that was more than enough reason to buy.

 

At the end of the $55 isn't too much of an outlay and I have always wanted it vinyl.

Simply Vinyl was a reissue. Not a bootleg. Unless there’s a bootleg of the SV pressing?

There's been bootlegs of this a couple of times.  What they use as a master, who knows?  SV was released in 1998, so could be that or the original.    I have a bootleg copy, and it sounds excellent!

... Can I ask what is bootleg?  Does bootleg mean fake? ...

I think "bootleg" and "pirate" are being confused here, they are often used interchangeably but are different:

 

Pirate/counterfeit:  an unauthorised copy of an officially-released disk by another company, passed off as an official release by the authorised company.  Can also refer to an unauthorised re-release of previously officially-released material, eg. the Indonesian compilation cassettes that were popular in the 70's.  With pirate/counterfeit disks, the artists, labels and other copyright owners do not get any royalty $ they are entitled to from the sale of the work (if it was authorised). 

 

Bootleg: Also unauthorised disks, and no money goes to the legitimate owners.  However, bootlegs release material that was previously unavailable - typically audience-recorded concerts, but also studio outtakes and radio broadcasts. 

 

The industry was originally hard on bootleggers, but now tends to turn a blind eye to it as they realised it is somewhat of a niche area, and a code of free online sharing has driven most of the disk-production companies broke.  In comparison, the industry is harder on pirates, as they tend to press in large quantities and have a greater impact on the major companies profits. 

 

Grey area:  These are releases that are somewhat legal in some countries and not in others.  They are becoming more common, as some European countries' copyright laws have expired after something like 50yrs, allowing anyone to copy and reproduce previously copyrighted material.  Some people find them unethical.  They may be legal in the country that produced the disks, but not legal in other countries where the copyright laws are different and the copyright has not passed into public domain.  Examples are mult-CD sets of an artist's series of record releases (emulating the trend of the major companies to release the mult-album budget CD set), and European jazz LPs.

Are you referring to the Hell Freezes Over remaster in question or the Eagles in general?
