A Briefing For The Ascent (CD vs LP) Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

I originally got this album on LP, and when I replaced it with the CD I was surprised to find that several things had been edited out:

(1) The introductory sketch performed by Terry and (I assume) Greg.

(2) Most of the long lead-in to "Going Home."

(3) The little spoken "instructional cassette" intros ("Part 3 - The Battle").

While the removal of (3) was a definite improvement, I've been curious as to whether there is, or might be coming up, a CD edition that restores (1) and (2). Anyone know?

I believe we have the master that includes all of the edited stuff so it could certainly be restored if Terry wanted to do that. I don't know which version he prefers.

There has been talk about bringing back both Knowledge & Innocence and Briefing.. possibly even as a set. (This is not an official announcement of anything.. just mentioning that it has been on our minds) So far nothing is definite.. everyones attention has been on the new Dogs stuff, the Return to the Neverhood and other things.

As far as I'm concerned, the perfect version would restore (1) and (2) but keep (3) out.

Speaking of K&I, I noticed that the CD version edited one really small thing from the LP version: the "scratchy-record" outro of "Riders of the Western Skies." Not a big loss there, of course.

This is why I kept my cassette even after I got the CD. I liked even the segments that were just footsteps between songs. It really tied the album together.

While I like all the dialogue intros and such, the only really annoying thing is how "Where Dreams Come True" is chopped almost in half. It could be that Terry didn't like the falsetto singing on it, or thought it had become too precious over time, but I take the stand that it is what it is. Chopping the song like that just seemed so extreme.

I prefer the CD version.
All that extraneous stuff just gets in the way of the music.

I'd like to see the whole recording restored, meaning everything on the cassette, plus any outtakes & extras on the end.

If you separate out the interludes into separate tracks, then whoever doesn't like it can rip/reburn as they see fit. This way should please everyone.

Less is more.

Maybe as a double version?

Have the first disc be "stripped down" and the Second disc be "pimped out."

I didn't notice anything like that. Am I just not remembering the LP version very well or do you have a different CD version??

On my CD, I have only the last verse and chorus. The rest is gone. It's not a disc flaw as the edit is perfectly added in, but if there are CD versions that actually have three verses on it, then now I'm feeling kinda burned.

Can you give me the track titles & times on your copy, as well as what label it's on? I want to compare to mine.
