Interesting - cheers for posting - so different remasters that didnt see the light of day ?

Anyone know why ? Was it the band or the label that pulled them being released ?

Any major positives or negative about these Steve Hoffman re-masters ?

My guess is,that the label gave out multiple orders of cuts & then chose which to use.weird is,this for the US label edition only,don't know how the economics work specificaly but.....hey?
Am i wrong....but wasn't the talk on the forum about how a batch of the used pressings are off center?

The 2007 US used ones were off center,which in conclusion doesn't mean these are.

As a Hoffman remaster - these are like to be the best sounding versions of all time (depending on what tapes he had to work with).

Hoffman did do "Love Will Tear Us Apart" for a Razor & Tie compilation CD that was released. Sounds excellent.

Cannot imagine that the Hoffman versions weren't up to scratch soundwise.

Maybe he was too expensive - or perhaps they just preferred a louder more compressed sound.
