Vox Humana Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

I finally got around to down loading the rest of my Daniel Amos CD's onto my Itouch. I was putting Vox Humana on and noticed "Collector's Edition" on it. Why is it concidered a collectors edition? There is nothing special about it. The origanal album is more of a collectors edition. I have had the CD since 1992 and I never noticed it before.

I buy their CD's because I enjoy their music. I don't buy them to collect them. I was just wondering why this is concidered a collectors edition, that's all. I have been enjoying Daniel Amos since 1977.

It was only called that on the cover because the person that paid for the reissue put it on there. I've always seen it as about as "bare bones" as you could get with a reissue.

I kind of figured that. I wish there was a reissue with some extras on it.

I still wish for a reissue with the tracks divided correctly.

The one in the store has the correct track IDs.

Hopefully, one day there can be an expanded & remastered edition.

And a re-release of Doppelganger in the same vein of the 2 disc Darn Floor would be awesome too, for those of us who have the album in mp3's transferred from cassette.

Yeah, we had hoped to possibly do something with Doppelganger last year but things got off track a little with another possible project. That ended up setting us back a little with a few different things.

We're pursuing a couple of different avenues for the Alarma Chronicles stuff. Fearful Symmetry is going to be the tough one.. but maybe something can be worked out.

Oh, I didn't know that. I didn't know it had been corrected and so thought it was the same as what I had. Thank you for letting me know.

It did not even have a lyric sheet, much less Terry's story.
It was a pretty hack job, that is for sure.

Thumb Up! The schlock Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

Talk about schlock... the worst of that whole thing was the unforgivable sin of splitting the tracks the wrong way. I mean please, halfway through the song? Someone didn't care enough to even listen to what they cut! I had to wait until Alarma Chronicles before that got rectified.

Like many other DA recordings, I will gladly buy a new copy if someone would remaster and add a few bonus tracks. Quality packaging is really pretty important, but ultimately the music is the core reason why we buy it, is that not so?

Yes, lame enough I'm considering buying the one they have in the DA store now just to get rid of it.

I never messed with that CD edition of the album. Which track was the split in? Was it in a spot that could at all be mistaken for a song change?

Oh, wait, let me guess: was it at that quick pause in "When Worlds Collide"?

It's worse than that. There is no index mark between "Live and Let Live" and "When Worlds Collide"; they are both in the same track. So the track labeled "When Worlds Collide" is actually "As the World Turns". Then the track labeled "As the World Turns" is actually the first part of "She's All Heart." THEN, the track labeled "She's All Heart" begins at the second phrase of the third verse with the words "to be brave until the end of all my days."

Fortunately there is no audible break if you are listening to the album in order, but if you have your music ripped and set on shuffle on your computer at work, it is disorienting.

Thats exactly the straw that broke the camels back when it came to M8 (not that they made the original Vox Humana CD). But when they made Little Red Riding Hood and Shotgun Angel they copied the master on their PC and left in the one minute gaps and didn't bother to listen to it becfore sending off to manufacture.

When my brother and I work on something, we listed to it over and over and check and recheck because we have that innate fear of getting 1000 or more CD's pressed wrong. Even after we send something off we hold our breathe until we finally get to see the pressed CD or DVD. It's sort of like that feeling of going on vacation and wondering if you left a fire burning in the garage.
