An unopened* Korean LP version of Chronologie.

* = Seemed like it, what with one tear on top of the original seal due to age, and the actual thing itself looked and smelled as if it hadn't been opened ever before. Pretty good!


You're lucky. I made the mistake not to open the reissues of M.O. - Hergest Ridge vinyl that I bought 2010. It had been stored in a pile with other albums.
I took it out the other day and omg I think I spend an hour washing it. The paper was almost glued to the vinyl as I tried to gently wiggle the LP out from there.
Now I'll always open a vinyl album the first day I get it just to check that everything is OK inside the cover. :P

Yeah, I'll have to clean up the vinyl a bit more to see if I can get rid of some static clicks and improve the sound quality further. ;)

Funny thing, this Korean LP edition is the first time I've realized that apparently during the "Casio clock" part, the closed hi-hat pattern actually changes. With every other version, I've never realized it before!

The part starting from 'round 0:06

German LP
Korean LP

Sure, of course now I hear it in the German one as well, but when I listened to the Korean LP version for the first time, I did wonder why did the track sound so different all of a sudden. :]

You should check out the Brazil LP of Chronologie. It has Chrono 1-4 on side A, Chrono 5-8 on side B :-D

Totally agree. It's as clearest the first 5 sec.
I also think that god forsaken ringing sound is less sharp on the Korean.
I hate such sounds. It is calling back the old tinnitus again. :punch:

A seemingly unopened Kraftwerk - The Mix (original German LP from 1991). The vinyl surfaces did have some smudges and marks on it, which might be the result of 26+ years in paper sleeves (put them in rice paper ones almost right away), or it's been opened at some point and then re-shrinkwrapped.

But regardless, the sound quality is almost perfect. And yet, it's not that different from the 2009 Der Katalog version (which definitely has more bass, though).

The Mix CD 2009
