new Revolutions + Chronologie / Chronology LP in April ?

Posted:    new Revolutions + Chronologie / Chronology LP in April ? [ !!! ]

I just came across a listing for a new vinyl LP release of Chronologie (as "Chronology"), supposedly to be released in April 2018:
[url]https://www.jpc.de/jpcng/poprock/detail/-/art/jean-michel-jarre-chronology/hnum/8142681[/url]

Unfortunately you can pretty much bet that this is going to be based on the 2015 remaster... :(

Edit:
Revolutions also scheduled:

I wonder what kind of a [url=http://www.zoolook.nl/forum/viewtopic.php?p=202106#202106]misspelling[/url] and/or off-center pressing (e.g. Oxygene 3) this release will have. ;)

Nice, so the digital skip in Chronologie 4 will be enhanced by a vinyl release which skips all the time because it's a piece of plastic.

I just wonder about the quality of the Chronology master. Is it even possible to make it sound any less flat, harsh and distorded?
I think I'm okey with the 1993 Scott Hull CD release. "It is what it is" sort of speak. :)

I never really got the problem with the sound quality of Chronology. Never found it bad, not even the '93 release some say even had a tinny sound. Might be an improvement a new remaster though.

Oh who am I kidding, make it twenty times louder and compress the hell out of it !

I got an unplayed copy of the Korean Chronologie LP last year, and it was only then that I realized for the first time in my life that (aside from the middle part) in Chronologie pt.4, the closed hihats actually don't play continuously through most of the track. So the mixing of that LP must have been clearer/different somehow for me to actually notice it for the first time ever (of course, now I notice in other version all the time but that's only because I'm aware of it now).

So for me, that's the best version of Chronologie (pt. 4, if anything). ;)

Apart from these questions of sound quality, it's still a good news.

We will soon afford to own a chronology LP with a decent price.

[quote="Dr_Jones"]It's being discussed here:

You know, only now did I actually realize that Revolutions is getting a re-release as well.

Place your bets! Will this vinyl edition of Revolutions (since it's most likely going to have Revolution, Revolutions in it instead of the original version) actually be better than the [url=https://www.discogs.com/Jean-Michel-Jarre-Revolutions/release/10455344]horrible bootleg[/url] that I bought off ebay for "science" (and to make that Discogs entry)? :P

Sure I heard there was some kind of legal dispute over the original version of Revolutions, causing JMJ to re-do it. As for the re-issue vinyl, I doubt the original master tapes would be used, instead the CD version will probably copied onto the vinyl.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it'll be the 1990 version of the song due to these legal issues.

Slightly off-topic: what makes you think it's a bootleg (and what makes it horrible?)
 
Finaero


Posted:     [ !!! ]

Well, that's the thing. I think it's either a bootleg or a really badly made reissue in the vein of the Sony 2014-> JMJ re-releases [size=8](then again, if this bootleg really was made in 1999 as the eBay listings claimed, that might explain it)[/size].

All this based on the sloppily copypasted "Revolution, Revolutions" text on the label on the record itself and the back of the sleeve (which otherwise appeared to be identical to the 1988 pressings), not to mention the odd hand-written "matrix number" on the vinyl itself. As for the horrible part, the record was already full of scratches out of the "box".

Not to mention the complete lack of post-1988 copyright dates anywhere on the record itself or the sleeve.

[size=8](Never tried getting the "1999" Zoolook LP from the same sellers)[/size]

Preorderable from 'round here as well http://cdon.fi/musiikki/jarre_jean-michel/chronology_(limited_blue_edition)-43830233 http://cdon.fi/musiikki/jarre_jean-michel/revolutions_(limited_blue_edition)-43830232

Though advertised as being printed on blue instead of purple vinyl... ( interestingly, another store refers to them as being purple vinyl editions https://www.levykauppax.fi/artist/jarre_jean_michel/chronology/#579265 https://www.levykauppax.fi/artist/jarre_jean_michel/revolutions/#579266 )

Did I miss something - what happened to the purple vinyls ? (amazon says they are black)
 
Finaero


Posted:     [ !!! ]

In other words, it's like Sony managed to screw up the release even before the actual release. [i]Wow.[/i]

Anyhow, someone seems to be already selling the new vinyl on eBay https://www.ebay.de/itm/JEAN-MICHEL-JARRE-CHRONOLOGY-LP-NEW-MINT-SEALED-2018/253552710895?hash=item3b08eb54ef:g:NucAAOSwIo5azL4W

Even though I prefer black vinyl I'll try out the Chronology ltd blue edition on CDON.
At the moment I don't see any other option and this is really confusing. :nico:
At iMusic they both (Chrono and Revolutions) seem to be 180g purple vinyls.
Somehow every time you're buying (or trying to) a new release from JMJ it's like buying the pig in the sack. :P

Thanks, Kanta.

So I guess it's safe to assume that the actual releases will be on black vinyl. Or maybe there already are purple/&blue ones in circulation, which will become rare(ish) collector items...

... so, people, place your bets! What kind of Sony shenanigans can we expect from this one? Off-center vinyls? Dadwater mixing miracles? (Then again, that one's a given) Missing track numbers + names from the labels / back of the sleeve? Stay tuned!

They're probably going to use the Dadwater remasters which means Chronologie 1.1 and 1.2 are divided and all the usual problems.

Now I'm placing my orders at every damn place that announces these releases in different colors. Lets see what's turning up and what doesn't! :evil:
How hard could it be to sell them on JMJ's official shop and leave it with that?
 
Finaero


Posted:     [ !!! ]

@Dr_Jones: Damn, I had already forgotten about that. Not to mention the clock SFX starting way earlier than in other editions at the end of Chrono8...

But yeah, just got an email from CDON that the shipment of these records has been delayed.

Not expecting any colored vinyls to arrive (whenever anything will arrive to begin with) :P

It is. Part 1 says 11'01, not 10'51. Part 8 says 5'09 and not 5'33. :roll:
A tiny hope left that they maybe, just maybe had less brickwalled vinyl masters.
It feels nice to at least have the old Revolutions vinyl without Dadwater effects. :P
