Exposure

Seen something about the guy that looks like a mushroom? Perhaps you just want to comment on his diaries? Post all that Fripperholic stuff here.

Wow...I emailed DGM about the defective copy on Friday, and I had a replacement today. That's some impressive turnaround. Why can't they always be that fast?

Anyway, the remaster sounds great. It's not an album I've listened to much in the past, so I'm not particularly tied to one version or another. That said, I don't know what my preferences are. Based on my initial listens, I like Halls vocals on Mary and Exposure a little better than the first edition.

The *****ing of the offensive words is kind of lame. I wonder if so they could avoid a "Parental Guidance, Explicit Lyrics" sticker?

So...uh...The first edition is the original vinyl edition? And the second edition is the remix that was done for the 1985 CD release? And the third edition is new for disc two of the recent release, and it's the second edition with Daryl Hall's original recordings replacing the remixes of the revoiced songs, which have been moved to the appendix?

Sorry if I'm asking the obvious, but the whole thing is a bit confusing to my currently-tired mind.

All you need to know about any edition of Exposure:

1. It's good.

I hope that makes it easier for you.

I have the limited edition of Exposure on mail order. 8) I hope that the second disc and the remaster is worth shelling out $15 for something I already have.

It is.

I'm not convinced on that, that "it is". Don't get me wrong, I love the album, whichever of the three ways I can now listen to it. I can't tell a lot of difference myself, except different singers singing the same songs. Maybe all bands should have different singers sing the same songs, so they can release all these versions later.

That's a pretty big difference right there (different songs done such different ways). Makes a big improvement over the simple-remastering-with-no-bonus-material treatment that almost all the KC albums got.

This release should be in every Crimhead collection.

What I didn't like in the mini-LP Edition was the opening inside the gatefold. It's hard to take the discs out.

Probably I'll burn a copy to listen in the car...
