Can you imagine the absolute frenzy around here if it was annouced this TOTY issue would include 4 previously unreleased tracks. I guess one can dream.,,

Do 4 even exist? (pre-Pixies demos would do nicely)

Probably not, I think FB has always been upfront about releasing stuff once recorded. I'd be happy with a 7" Super Lecker actually.

I'm too lazy to look for an old post that might answer this, but was there ever a studio Tossed or Mosh Don't Pass the Guy w/ vocals, or was it just live?

I think any 1996 or so Cult of Ray show they played it with vocals (which are just the title of the song), same what they did with Tossed for the first tour.

I don't think I've heard this either.

Are there lyrics to Adventure?

hi,
here is a zip file with Mosh and a bunch of other nice things that a very kind FBnet member sent me some years ago:

Looks like there is a similar thread going in the "Chat" forum that I was commenting on. In any case, I'll ask the same question here:

I'm having a hard time finding out anything about this release, other than it's RSD and on white vinyl for TOTY and orange for FB (groovy). But, as a big hi-fi / record guy, I'm wondering who mastered it, from what source, and where was it pressed. I can't find anything. I have the original pressings of both of these, and if this is just a press of a CD or some digital source, I'm really not interested. Other than the white vinyl for TOTY... that would be cool.

Has anyone seen any details?

I picked them up today. I have the original pressings as well. Haven't checked out TOTY yet, but comparing FB to the original pressing, looks like the inner sleeve print and photos are blurrier, less crisp, and the sound is a little on the thin side. Not bad overall though. These will be my go-to's though instead of the originals to save wear and tear.

Update on TOTY: sounds significantly beefier than FB, and more in line with the original pressing. I wonder if they were done at different plants with different engineers? I do wish they'd publish the sources. Not just for these, but all re-pressings these days. It's good info to know.

I just came here to post about the poor sound of the first album. It was very disappointing. I don't own the original, but I do own the CD and cassette. This actually reminds me of the cassette, albeit a higher Fidelity version. But the cassette messed with the overall sound just like this. Too much mid-range.

I thought it sounded better than the CD (I don't have the original vinyl), but yeah, I wasn't amazed by it. It sounds thin, like johnny says.

Listening to TOTY now. The overall sound is better, but not by much. Unfortunately, it's marred by a lot of surface noise. Not a big problem because so many songs are loud enough you never notice, but it is definitely there.

Discussion on discogs points out it's the US version getting the complaints, not the EU version.

I noticed that the surface noise on mine was only on side A of the first record on TOTY.

Ah, memories... this thread is 17 years old. I can't quite believe it.
