Anesthetize 4LP vinyl Box
24. Mar 2011 at 08:49
 
Anesthetize 4LP vinyl Box on preparation by Tonefloat.
 
Well I've heard a rumour for a new vinyl release from Tonefloat but the news confirmed now at the latest Carbon Nation Issue. Tonefloat added recently tf112 & tf114 on their catalogue but without any further details. I hope that Anesthetize is one of them and it wont take that long.
 
I know it was mentioned on some other topics but here is a topic to discuss just this.

As exciting as this sounds, I just ordered Lightbulb Sun from Tonefloat. WIth shipping it came out to $85.  
 
A 4lp box + shipping... $180?

Since PT LPs tend to sometimes includes songs not released elsewhere....I wonder if this will have 'Stars Die' on it?

Most likely Burningshed will have it on order....Burningshed always has the vinyls cheaper. To give you an example of what that means. Lightbulb Sun black vinyl is $48.40 shipped (to the USA) from Burningshed. So if they get the Anesthetize set, it will be cheaper than Tonefloat. But Burningshed usually won't get it till sometime after Tonefloat does.

Hopefully BS will be carrying Anesthetize. I considered buying LBS from BS, but I wanted the limited marble vinyl.

Right, I think BS will have it. I'd be surprised also if there is a limited marble version for this 4LP set. I'm sure we'll find out all the info soon.

I'm fine with black. I'm sure there will be a "limited edition of some sort". Didn't they do that for all Tonefloat releases?
Bottom line is that here is the chance to own a dynamite audio version of Anesthetize. Specially for those that didn't buy the limited edition.  Wink

Not sure how TF is going to handle this one - but I know that I purchased their vidnaObmana 8LP set and it was 49.99euros plus shipping - which came to around $100 Canadian at the time - don't know how much a PT set will cost, but hopefully it isn't to much different, considering the V.O. box was 8 180gm LP's.

I am sure that Anesthetize will include some kind of a book together with the vinyla. So that wil make it a bit more expensive. My guessing will be around 70 euros postage inclusive.

I wanted to buy 2 as well but I will stick with one copy at the moment. I cant afford another copy now, maybe later.
 
92.59 Euros with postage to Greece. 27.60 Euros for insured post is not bad for such a heavy package....

I think that what they are charging is probably reasonable. Really, it's 4LPs for 65 Euro, which is not that bad (16 or so Euro per LP).  But it is too high for me personally when shipping charges are included, so I will have to skip this one.

This is probably the first time that I'm not going to buy a PT release right away...over 90 euros is just too much money for just another package of the same music (...while I think that the price is appropriate for such a 4-vinyl package).

I agree, it seems a reasonable price, but since the US dollar isn't worth sh*t it becomes WAY too expensive for me.  undecided

Ordered also! Quite a bit of a buck for 4LP, but the shipping is really OK for Russia - the same as Europe plus it's registered!

I have never ordered anything from BS with insurance/tracking. This order came with it, however you can only get the tracking number by specifically asking BurningShed for it, is that right?

Would love to hear how it sounds when it starts arriving. I've held back on ordering so far because I have the RED ltd set with CD's, although the mastering on it is quite compressed. Hoping the vinyl is better done.

Yeah, too right.
But the beauty about TF and BShed which some may not agree with is they charge you instantly for purchases unlike Amazon/HMV who charge only after despatch which can be a pain when buying pre orders when an unexpected CC bill arrives.
Each payment method has its pro's and con's I guess.
Anyway, back to Anesthetize, just finished cleaning all 4 vinyls (not that TF editions ever need cleaned), popped into new poly inners awaiting first play in about an hour (loud).  Grin

Spinning now Simon/Mike and its perfect in every way. Massive vast soundstage with air around each performer/instrument, the vinyl edition captures Harrison at his best, he plays from the heart. One of the quietest recordings I've heard with zero surface noise. Hard to believe a precious stone scraping over a piece of plastic can sound this good.
Tonefloat have done an exceptional job on this edition as always. Congrats the Charles and the team at Tonefloat, you guys are a credit to the format. PT are very lucky to have you on board.
Thanks for another supreme pressing yet again, my valves have never taken such a pounding.  Smiley

I look forward to hearing your thoughts.


Spinning now Simon/Mike and its perfect in every way. Massive vast soundstage with air around each performer/instrument, the vinyl edition captures Harrison at his best, he plays from the heart. One of the quietest recordings I've heard with zero surface noise. Hard to believe a precious stone scraping over a piece of plastic can sound this good.
Tonefloat have done an exceptional job on this edition as always. Congrats the Charles and the team at Tonefloat, you guys are a credit to the format. PT are very lucky to have you on board.
Thanks for another supreme pressing yet again, my valves have never taken such a pounding.  Smiley

How does it compare to the CD?

ohh thats naughty starting a vinyl is better than cd bun fight when we all know the cold hard truth. Vinyl is better.  Grin
TBH I havent played the cd for a while so no back to back comparisons here but from memory its very very close between the 2 formats. If I had to make a choice I'd say the vinyl just edges it but I'm bias and cd takes a back seat with me.  
Only use cd when i cant be bother getting off my arse every 17 minutes which isn't often.
Put it this way, both formats are equally enjoyable. Its the music that counts at the end of the day.
 
That last bits bollox by the way, vinyl counts as much as the music, cd sucks most of the time.  Smiley

Mine arrived in NJ today from Tonefloat. I'm impressed with the 5 or 6 day turn around time from Holland. Boxset looks great, can't wait to crank it up later today!

Got mine. The artwork is unbelievably awesome. The book inside is worth the purchase. Carl did an amazing job.  
BTW, the sound and music are outstanding too.  Smiley
 
Did I congratulate Carl enough?     Cool

Hate to  be a party pooper  as only  great things have been said so far about this release. Packaging is good, yes, and booklet is good, yes, but I wouldn’t IMO say it’s great.  Not really a fan of this matt type finish and neither for out of focus pictures. As for the recording  again good but not great.  I found a level Sibilance not heard on other PT vinyl releases  and other quality vinyl I have in general. In fact when I first played it  I thought  somehow my  turntable settings had changed so  I recalibrated everything ( VTA,  Azimuth, Tracking force etc ) but to no avail.  So yes I like it and again you can hear things in the vinyl  that you don’t hear on the CD  or Blu-ray release which is great.  But IMO the packaging is not  brilliant and likewise for the sound quality.

just updated my turntable to tdk life on record, took a while of experimenting, found out that the phono input made it a bit flat, then I put it thru the normal inputs with the pre amp on & wow, a whole lot better, felt like I was listening to the gig for the 1st time Smiley

I didnt want to open a new topic so I thought to ask here.
After the Anesthetize Box from Tonefloat, whats next? Any rumours of the next PT release? Its been a while and no new/forthcoming releases are on Tonefloats website.
 
What about Deadwing vinyl?
