Not sure if this has been discussed....<br>Why hasn't the original mix been released on cd????<br>"Money" was released finally with the original mix on<br>cd; why not Ruben? <br><br>  Luckily, I have a clean vinyl copy of Ruben which I burnt<br>on cdr.  ;D

I'd buy a cd of Ruben with original mix in a sec! <br> Does Gail or any family member actually lurk in this here<br>forum?  ;D

[quote author=Thing-Fish2003 link=board=albums;num=1061510716;start=0#6 date=08/23/03 at 21:01:43]<br>[font=Smack LET]The vinyl is the one that sounds muddy, in my opinion ... and don't say it's not very good, or that it sucks! Say "It's good, in my opinion" or "It's not good, in my opinion." Don't EVER say that an album, or a version is not good, not very good, sucks, or blows, without adding "In My Opinion" to the end.[/font][/quote]<br>IMO, you are correct about the original vinyl.  ;D<br>It does sound a bit muddy. but  I prefer it over the<br>remixed version.<br> Read somewhere that FZ originally wanted Ruben<br>to be in mono with built-in scratches.<br>

<br> thing fish ,  i still think the remix of ruben is not very good.  even after your cute lecture.<br><br> arent you the one that always bitches about the sleep dirt cd vs vinyl ? i think i have seen you post negatively about that almost 1000 times.<br><br>  and for the record, the vinyl for sleep dirt is way better.<br> the re-mix with the vocals and 80s drums isnt all that good.  <br><br> later buddy

[quote author=Lumpy Gravy Sr link=board=albums;num=1061510716;start=0#11 date=08/25/03 at 05:24:55]"Stuff Up the Cracks" is the original mix, with the original bass and drums intact.[/quote]<br> This song is a killer! I love the way it switches from a<br>50s tune then all the sudden FZ kicks in with that<br>wah-wah  guitar solo! ;D

I have 2 vinyl copies of this. One is on the standard blue<br>Verve label. <br> The other copy I have is strange. The label is white<br>and has MGM/Verve on it. <br> The mixes are the same on both.

[quote author=Lumpy Gravy Sr link=board=albums;num=1061510716;start=15#20 date=08/26/03 at 04:48:55]<br><br>I have all their stuff too. 3 CD's and 2 LP's. I first saw them on the British Comedy TV show "Do Not Adjust Your Set" (at the end of the '60's/beginning of the '70's?). Which, by the way, had some of the future Monty Python-members in it. <br>Bonzo Dog Band peformed one song in every episode, and I'll never forget when they did "We are Normal."  ;D[/quote]<br>  I got carried away. I have all the US lps plus the Edsel<br>re-issues plus "Cornology" and some solo stuff too,<br> Still searching for Viv's "Men Opening Umbrellas" album.<br>It's a tough one to find. <br>  I've seen 2 episodes of "Do Not Adjust Your Set."<br>Funny bizarre stuff. Very Monty Python-ish!<br> One's I've seen feature "By A Waterfall" and "Monster<br>Mash," "Beautiful Zelda" and others.<br> A buddy on mine saw the Bonzos open for Pink<br>Floyd in 1967. They did the "warm-up act" routine and passed around medicine balls on stage. They then had<br>the audience get up and do "jumping jacks." LOL! ;D<br>
