US baby boomers!
« on: October 30, 2008, 06:45:08 PM »

how did you feel when you discovered the different (Superior IMO) UK albums and singe tracklists . did you feel "OH no, and i thought our albums were the only ones, and the uk versions had tracks decided by the band, with better stereo mixes " or did you think "ours were better as they had singles on them (Up until revolver)".

When I was a kid it was taken for granted that you bought UK bands in UK pressings because the sound would be better and the track sequencing would be what the band intended. There are good US variants, though: the American versions of Out Of Our Heads and Between the Buttons are stronger than their UK equivalents, and the US The Rolling Stones, Now is far superior to the British Rolling Stones No 2. Sound quality was still a problem back in the days of vinyl, though, and I used to assemble my US Rolling Stones albums from British pressings because the American versions usually had a lot of tape hiss and really awful fake stereo on them.  :)
