    Pink Floyd • The Wall
    Another of my $1 junk shop finds

    Can't beat that price. One of my absolute favorites. Not sure where it falls on the CD, but side 3 on vinyl version is a fantastic demonstrator when friends are over that like Pink Floyd

    I always question when they say "Original Master Recording". Really? So what exactly were the "First" albums that came out? Cheap knockoffs? No way.

    I guess they started that phrasing because they were, in all cases, repressing a record that had already been released. So the purpose would be to communicate or advertise that the repress laucquer was cut from the original master tapes. When they have released pressings that were from a digital master or non-first generation master, that area says "Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs" rather than original master recording

    An all official release. Limited to 1000 copies only.
    The Jackie Fountains were an obscure beat group from a small rural town in Sweden.
    They broke up in 1967, but several years later lead guitarist Hasse Wärmling was in an early line-up of the Stranglers. He left the group before they became successful, but they held on to a song he had co-written with Hugh Cornwell, "Strange Little Girl," the music of which dated back to Wärmling´s Jackie Fountains days. The Stranglers demoed the song with Wärmling as early as 1974 (it can be heard on the Early Years Rare & Unreleased 1974-76 CD, and it´s wonderful), but it was not until 1982 that they re-recorded it and it became one of their biggest hits.
