[quote author=NANOOK76 link=board=albums;num=1096659488;start=15#26 date=10/11/04 at 08:20:07]<br><br>I'm really surprised to hear that, but hey we all hear differently. I must admit I'm also partially biased being that I just happen to be fond of the sound of LP's. ::)<br>[/quote]<br>Understandable.  This is coming from a whipper-snapper who's been raised on CDs.  I like vinyl too, but I never really agreed with the whole "vinyl is better" than CDs argument.  They're both cool.  Some stuff sounds better to me on vinyl.  Some stuff sounds better to me on CD.

Weird<br> :P[/quote]<br><br>Such pressings date back from the time of automatic record changers - you'd put both records on the turntable (I think one would sit higher up the spindle and fall onto the other after the other was played) with sides 1 and 2 facing upwards. Then you'd turn them both over and sides three and four would face upwards. You would only have to get up after side two to turn both records over, instead of at the end of every side.<br><br>The real drawback to this is that on occasion, CDs were mastered from the tapes designed for these automatic record changer pressings. I remember the first Australian CD edition of the Jimi Hendrix Experience's Electric Lady Land had been transferred to CD in the side 1, side 4, side 2 side 3 order with sides 1 and 4 on disc one and sides 2 and 3 on disc 2, so that you ended up listening to 'Still Raining, Still Dreaming' (the reprise) before 'Rainy Day, Dream Away'. That kind of disregard for the original work is a downright insult.

The sticker on the front is in english.[/quote]<br><br>There wasn't a USA version of Sheik on CBS. The USA and Canadian copies are on Zappa Records.<br>You either have a UK or Holland pressing which are the most common. Look on the label for the country of origin.<br> ;D
