Just learned that the sound engineers in the country are a tightly-knit group. Here's hoping they band together as brothers in arms to continue to improve the SQ of the succeeding releases of mainstream companies. Along with my fellow vinyl enthusiasts, I salute Polyeast for daring to try out this beloved recording storage format even as I respectfully call their attention to the inputs raised in WS on the need to preserve the warm analog sound we've grown to identify with the medium.

Mabuhay ang OPM!

Possibly more cost-effective, as the record company is releasing these almost purely on the strength of the demand from WS and PDVD. From a business standpoint, releasing a greatest hits album is a less-risky way of launching what is still a niche product. . . and an expensive one at that at PHP1,200 a pop.

i hope next time they put extra effort on the covers, since packaging plays an important part in an album release...in my opinion the covers look bootleg themselves...pics,write ups ,etc would be a good come on especially for us collectors.just my 2 cents..

and also double check sa spelling of songs :wasntme:

I'm really not surprised. AFAIK, mainstream recording companies see artwork, liner notes, packaging, even copy editing as nothing more than unnecessary added expenses. Consulting with, and involving the original artist(s), engineers, and producers costs more money. And being fastidious about technical quality costs yet more money.

To me, this rash of vinyl releases is nothing more than jumping on the bandwagon. I see no artistic, creative, nor technological framework driving these projects. All they want is our money. I for one will not give them any of mine.

I may have to agree on makinao on this one.

It is clear that the purveyors of this project are not really record enthusiasts. They fail to see the importance of liner notes, jacket design, etc the way we appreciate and see significance on those things.
An informative and historical perspective of the artist, the recording process, and the reason for this analogue reissue would have been a welcome legacy that the recording company would have left for future generations to appreciate.

I come from the printing/graphic arts industry. Adding liner notes won’t even cause a dent on the P1200 price they are asking. Also, a fine arts student or a budding graphic artist could render a more attractive jacket. Heck, he may even do it for free as long as he’s credited on the album. – I would!
Apparently, the recording company didn’t even consider this avenue; and as stated above, makes this seem like a rush and hurried project just for the sake of the bottom line.

The technicalities involved to produce good sound on these reissues have numerous challenges. I may close my eyes on an inferior sound quality and let it slide. I understand that these are beyond their control.
But I cannot understand why they cannot come up with a packaging befitting the importance of these reissues.
Talagang mukhang binale wala lang.

It seems that the recording company is missing the whole point of these vinyl reissues. This was a chance for them to be that pioneering spirit reintroducing vinyl and ushering the second golden age of analogue here in the country.

This was a chance for them to be a part of local music/recording history.

They blew it.

They should look at Penguin Books and the Criterion Collection as models. For Penguin, it's basically the same public domain books, in great-looking new editions with attractive packaging. For Criterion, it's the same art films, but cleaned up, with a lot of extras thrown in, in great packaging, sold at reasonable prices. And new generations of readers and viewers are picking them up and rediscovering the classics because the companies cared enough to make a big deal of these re-issues, not just to make money, but because that's what these works deserve.
