There is a faint scratchy noise at the start of 4ever, right under "If I never...",

there is also one at the start of Colonized Mind and to a lesser degree on Crimson.

Also in between Love Like Jazz and 77 Beverly Park there was a really bad one under the reverb guitar. All copies had that in those places but some slightly stronger.

If you don't listen properly you might miss it but it's there.

If you're copy doesn't have that you're lucky, I had it on 3.

ill make note of this. I was listening while folding clothes so I will check it out! Thanks!

Let me know if you can also hear the noise in these places. I'd sounds like a bit of scratchy distortion, similar in a way when a FM radio gets a bit of interference or is not properly locked on a station. They are fairly brief, maybe a second or so long.

The one at beginning of 4ever was the most obvious to me and it was there on all 3 copies.

Only the first Lotusflower record was affected in that way, disc 2 MPLSound didnt have those noises.

Hope you reported it to amazon. I've sent 2 records back and holding on to the third until amazon tells me they got a new batch.

Many people on the Steve Hoffman crazy audiophile forum have reported that their new vinyl reissue of Lotus and MPlShit have the same music on sides B and D. In other words, the flip side of MPlShit is just the flip side of Lotus again. Well, I received my much-delayed order from Amazon today and it has this problem. WTF.


I would love to receive one of those, mistakes like that can really fetch some good money over time.

LOL! I can see that. Who wouldnt pay for a rare copy of double sided more rare Prince album

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

Received mine about 2 weeks ago from amazon, opened it, but didn't put it on. I just randomly saw this thread - thank goodness I did! Not my favorite Prince album, so it might have been awhile before I got around to putting it on. Well, I checked it out, and what do you know, B = D. I just set up the amazon return, and from what I'm seeing around here, it sounds like the problem is extremely widespread. I'm just asking for a refund. I don't feel like going round and round with amazon on defective copy after defective copy. Especially not for louts/mlp. Thanks for the heads up!

Bob... Ain't dat a bitch?

It is still avaialable here if anyone is still interested

I think it is the same release as last year in France and it was fine. Might be worth a look for those of you who have had prblems with the latest re-issue.

Because Music sent me a replacement disc for the MPLSoUND disc. It arrived yesterday...totally fucking warped! They sent it from France to the US in a flimsy padded envelope. Idiotic!

That sucks. But at least it's the best songs on MPLSound smile

Maybe having the wrong side pressed is fairly rare but bad pressings are very common these days.

A lot of the new vinyl is badly made.

I had two Rhino reissues of Dirty Mind, both warped, one so badly the neddle jumped.

I got The US and European originals, they are still completely flat.

rolleyes Yet another reason that old the old way of doing things was superior to now...

180gm vinyl is way better than the old US stuff.
