Ok, it seems that for reasons yet unclear (probably damaged CDR master, from which the glass master for replication is an exact copy), there are errors on CD1 of Katso kukkaa, I’ll investigate this when I get back home in August, but judging from the jumps in tracks 4, 6 and 8, and the crackling in tracks 9 and 10 of the pirated Russian release, I’ll need to re-replicate the disc if all of them are really similarily damaged. So probably people who want the new disc will at least have to pay at least the postage, since already this project has swallowed huge amounts of money from my personal budget :P
So if anybody can duplicate these phenomena and report back to me, I would be most happy:
Track 4, 2:53 jumps
Track 6, 1:15, 3:58, 6:24, 7:18 jumps
Track 7, 0:40 jumps
Track 8, 0:05 jumps
Crackling until the end of the album starting at track 9, 2:40
I can confirm these. The jumps are rather small, didn’t even notice them during my first listening, but the crackling sound during the last two tracks is a bit more disturbing. The music itself is great! :-)
Well the re-pressing is on the way, it’s just been delayed for much longer that I should :/
Unfortunately, my CD has the same problems.
Yup, the repressing is on the way very soon I hope, I will offer it for the price of the stamps probably.
Hi Kim, My cd had the same problems.
Yes, the new pressing has been horribly delayed, probably I can offer a replacement CD for the price of the stamps when it’s ready… Soon I hope!
