Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

A new server, a new environment. Updated and all.

As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password. If that fails, I can set a password for you, you can contact us at the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

Music for Supermarkets

Plenty of things have been released throughout the years: albums, books, tapes, DVDs, even watches and condoms! Discuss'em in here!

Seems to be another edit in the vein of these two:

They forgot to add the reflection on the "MFS" one, though. ;)

Kanta, I think it's pointless resurrecting the thread unless some new info/evidence/recording comes up.

According to the article the master tapes were not burned. ;)

I think with the amount of VST plugings available these days, one could create almost identical replica of the whole album. The one made by Radek is a bit off, some of the sounds don't completely match.

Well, it's very hard to replicate something that the only copy is in such a poor quality:
1. no low and high frequencies
2. one channel only

A lot of guess work/artistic license is required.

Not if you could find the person at Radio Luxemburg who played the record and heard the stereo effects himself :twisted: The other half you can base off of Zoolook and Rendez vous tracks.

If you asked me how the panning on Oxygene was done I couldn't save my life by accurately describing it, and that's considering I've heard it over hundred times in the past few years. You think someone can still remember after nearly 35 years?

I'm still surprised that the person who owns it is unknown. From what I can understand the first and second resell is documented and known, but after that the tracking of the record/owner stopped and is now unknown/lost. A brand new digital rip would be amazing (or at least as good as can be for a single unique record that's 34 year old), the record would still keep the original value due to it being a literal one of a kind, but it would really great to hear it in the best possible quality. It would lose the mystical part that it has had over all these years, but I'd honestly take that.

I was wondering though, if sharing copyrighted material is a violation and the record is the only one existing, it would be beyond easy to track the person who shares it... And in theory, that person could be charged with piracy, no?

On the one hand yes, on the other... Supposedly no one knows where it is at the moment so there's that. That and I honestly doubt Jarre would care about it being shared. The public airing of it was introduced with: "Piratez moi!."

Today, it's been 35 years since the album was released. Listening to it now, it's a fascinating album.

I'm sorry. I wished there was something to say about it, but alas.
