  1. You can still paint one of your walls in black to get an optimal contrast.
  2. A friend of mine who bought it from Amazon received it in a proper packaging, got it from the second batch after it had been sold out for a while (also his number was quite high like your second one). I guess people complained when they received their first copies, some might have even returned it, I wouldn't wonder, so they changed the packaging. I somehow got used to bent covers, writings on center labels and artwork after years, though I still can't stand it on CD's, these have to be perfect.
  3. My copy has the number 0207. Have you bought the second copy because of the condition of the cover as it arrived to you?
  4. The picture of the back cover has been added on Amazon and in the end there are three versions and it is limited to 1000 copies. EDIT: As I wrote about the Instrumental Mix being on vinyl exclusively in the post above, that may be the reason they have withdrawn the digital release with the Extended Mix from sale, as they decided that they want it together with the Instrumental Mix just on vinyl, who knows.

  5. And I hope it’s gonna be vinyl exclusive and the pressing will sound as crackly as possible and with lots of surface noise. EDIT: I’m joking, of course. Though I personally think that the instrumental will be just on vinyl, but who knows. We’ll see.
  6. http://www.jackals-forge.com/bodystory.html for blood cells in capillaries (which can be 1 cell thick in diameter) but replacing the particles with the real original blood cell geometry. Jonathan Stroud once again came up with the goods, writing a solution which would have been impossible in terms of rendering and dynamic computation using any off-the-shelf software. He devised a setup which took a model of branching capillaries, automatically created a central curve for each "tube" to form a network of branching paths. Particles were then fed down the paths in single file but with
  7. Bought. Have you noticed on the IBS site, that intro111 has posted above, there is also the tracklist, allegedly an instrumental mix is supposed to be there besides the extended version. Hollywood (180 gr. White Coloured Vinyl) Artisti: Gigi D'Agostino, La Vision Supporto: Vinile LP Numero supporti: 1 Etichetta: Time Data di pubblicazione: 31 luglio 2020 Compilation EAN: 8051361273406 1 LA Vision & Gigi D’Agostino “Hollywood”(Extended Mix) 2 LA
  8. Shlould it not meet a certain number of sales before they offer a CD-R version of an mp3 release? I feel that I read something like that somewhere years ago, which would make sense since not all mp3’s are offered as CD-R’s, it’s actually a small fraction of those.
  9. You’re right, I haven’t noticed this difference before, I just knew about the low-pass filter (0:51-1:13) and the instrumental part from Pensando ballando mix (1:44-2:26) both that became the part of the new Ribadisco mix, so it’s like the two mixes spliced together in the end, the beginning of Ribadisco mix and then followed by Pensando esplicando mix.
  10. Well, Benessere1 is a DJ mix, there it is understandable, as it was likely played on CDJ players then going to mixer and then recorded (likely exchanged L/R cables), actually I’ve just listened to that and the whole mix seems to be affected, I’ve compared these songs “Paura e nobilta’“ pensando esplicando mix, “Tangology”, “Sostanza noetica”, “The rain”, “Summer of energy” and “On eagle’s wings” which appear also on other releases. Btw. Paura e nobiltà is actually ribadisco mix there, probably Gigi decided to change the mix name when he released LTII do differentiate it from UC2 version which
  11. It’s not much about quality as such, but has anyone ever noticed that ZYX Music releases have the left and right channels swapped in a number of examples? I’ve known about Bla Bla Bla for quite a long time … Today I also noticed that the channels are swapped in Radio edit and Extended mix on New Year’s Day single. Guitar, Purezza and and the last track New Year’s Day (5:40) are OK, though. It also concerns the digital Media Records release (which is actually released by ZYX Music), French and Australian CD’s are entirely OK. Concerning Bla Bla Bla, on the CD (ZYX 9030-8) all three songs ha
  12. Is it a completely different mix which we don’t know or just a different cut of an already released mix on the singles?
  13. And that’s why ZYX received 192 kbps mp3 masters for 2003/2004 CD’s (UC1, UC2, Gigi’s Goodnight, Cuore matto, Soleado …) You know, for Germans it’s more than good enough. (Though it’s weird, the German vinyl Cuore matto seems to be made of lossless files unlike the CD.)
  14. Bought all the three copies, going to resell them and make some money.
  15. Yeah, that’s what I’ve wanted to know. When I bought some items on Amazon in the past, for example from the Italian or the French Amazon, the package was sent from Germany in the end, probably they ship it from the closest department when it is available. Though in this case, it will have to travel from the US, since they probably create them just there upon request and they are not stored anywhere else. Actually, the value is set at 22 EUR for items coming outside the EU customs union (including the shipping costs) which is pretty low and it makes impossible to buy a vinyl record from the US,
  16. I don’t know if you intend to open them, but can you tell me whether the label on the CD-R disc itself is just a sticker or it is professionally printed like on the Adamante or Dream CD’s? Also did it travel actually from the US (so you had to pay the additional VAT 19%) or Europe in the end?
  17. I’m just reading the old topic here, and people mention that 1004 was a new version of The Mind’s Journey, as far as I remember it did not sound similar, but it definitely contained a vocal saying “the mind’s journey”. I had also recorded these tracks from the site that time, but I lost it among other things with an old hard drive many years ago, unfortunately.
  18. I didn’t know about the old LTII either. As you mention the Silence, I guess it was together with “Amorelettronico”, Coatti Brothers “Lady Oscar”, Love Transistor “Loverland”, La tana del suono “Father”, “1000”, “1002” and “1004” in the flash player at the time, right? I just remembered that, though I no longer remember what these songs sounded like.
  19. I didn’t know that. I thought that just the number 1 in the title led you to expect the second volume. However, it’s likely that all of these were supposed to be followed by other volumes, but things have simply changed. On the other hand, releases like Tecno fes or L’Amour toujours, which didn’t have the number 1 in their titles, got them.
  20. And you forgot to mention Lento violento compilation … dove passa il futuro. Well, it’s clear it was replaced by Lento violento … e altre storie, same like the announced Silence album was just changed to an E.P. and the Laboratorio 4 is Suono libero (according to the SIAE sticker on some early copies). By the way, it’s not only Il Grande viaggio di Gigi d’Agostino vol. 1, though it has the number 1 in its name, another volume has never been released, the same applies for the Progressive Hyperspace volume #1 or the Experiments vol. 1, for example.

  22. This old version of L’amour toujours was actually released as the “Original Mix” on the compilation Tekno! #17 in 2000, in the past before I bought it I had believed there might be the Extended mix instead only to be found on the US vinyl at that time.
  23. DS 0041776720 By the way, you’ve changed your opinion about adding no-Gigi releases, haven’t you? I remember that you didn’t want to add Maxwell’s Trust No One CD’s to the list.
  24. Of course, I confused Mantra Dag with Lentonauta, meant the latter, sorry. Personally, I also believe there are going to be other EP’s and albums, maybe even this year, but I feel that Happy Go Lucky and Psico Dance are already abandoned (sure, it’s just my opinion). By the way, has it ever been officially stated that Mondo reale and those advertised forthcoming releases from 2004 or 2005, like Underconstruction 1995–2005 or the vinyl Those Were The Days (and certainly a few others) are not going to be released in the end? Just asking, I don’t know … but even if it was not, we practically know
