Released and remastered on three vinyl albums, one Crayola crayon red, one yellow and one blue, there’s but a single thing that sweeps through my mind as I hold this collection, and that’s the cameo Beta Band’s EP (the EP, not the band) made in the movie High Fidelity, where John Cusack was determined to see how many of the The Three EP’s he could sell simply by playing the darkly dreamy and haunting track “Dry the Rain” in his record shoppe. And yes, I immediately found my way to my local record shoppe and scored a copy, where to my sincere disappointment, none of the other tracks were anything remotely like that glorious single, as if it were all some sort of cosmic joke directly played by the vinyl gods at my expense. But more on that later.The newly remastered collection draws together the actual three EPs for a 20th anniversary reissue. There are no changes to the afore mentioned albums, no additional material, no outtakes or alternate versions of any of the songs. That said, the Beta Band were nearly unrecognizable when smacked up against what was happening the the 90’s, something I failed to appreciate then and still do to this very day. Sadly for me, the Beta Band offered no comprehensive vision or a cohesive experience. Everything was so different, that the only similarities I heard was the dissimilar-ness.Many listeners rate the Beta Band rather highly, though methinks it’s all a wash of pseudo manufactured ’look at me, I’m so intelligent’ nonsense … sort of like your friend who insists on playing Sparks albums when you come over, where you’re left feeling that it’s more of a lecture than a fun visit and cool listen, leaving me to bet my bottom dollar that none of those Sparks albums will be played ’til a return visit, and then, the fear of hearing Sparks or the Beta Band is foremost in my thoughts when considering that visit, leaving me to invite him over to my house instead, but again, the vinyl gods swat me like some cat toy, as the guy shows up with Sparks albums tucked under his arm and this set of records as a gift, records I’ll never play and can never sell, for fear my disloyalty will be discovered. And if that’s not enough, I have to sit there with these records spinning on my turntable, with him informing me that the records are playful, a boundless odyssey of psychedelic imagination, where the band is under no illusions regarding conforming to anything other than their own delusional sense of off beat adventure. These albums come across like your kid’s drawings, worthy of be taped to the refrigerator and smiled at, though nothing more; which of course now has me wondering if I might do the same here, tape ‘em on the fridge for a quick smile and instantly forgotten as soon as I shut the door.These records have a very do it yourself feel, suggesting that the ideas and concepts inspired far outweigh the finished product, all leaving me to feel that anyone with a bedroom and a computer can have a following. Well, if you happen to be a fan, then you’re future’s so bright your gonna have to wear shades, because all of the Beta Band material is going to be remastered and reissued, though the other releases may see some changes, along with additional material.For now, this assemblage is tucked away in the back of my closet, where it will dutifully be brought out just before my wayfaring friend knocks on my door again.*** The Fun Facts: The cover art includes image of all three of the EP’s.Beta: Second in position in the structure of an organic molecule from a particular group of atoms. Also: A stage of development in which a product is nearly complete but not yet ready to be released.What does it mean to be beta? A beta orbiter is someone, especially a male, who invests time and effort into mingling with others in the hope of eventually getting into a romantic relationship or acquiring sex. The term can be used interchangeably with the terms involuntary celibate or incel.The reality of the situation regarding the band's name is this: Lead singer Stephen Mason worked for a video production house in the duplication department, responsible for manufacturing beta video copies. At the time he thought this would be his dream job, though one night while working late he fell asleep waiting for a dub to finish and the cigarette he was not supposed to be not smoking causing a pile of beta tapes to burst into flame. One of the volunteer firefighters who arrived on the scene was drummer Robin Jones. Strangely enough, he was looking for a lead singer to which the band was born. When looking for a name they considered the Alpha Band, but thought that sounded pretentious, then remembering the beta tape incident that initially brought them together, the name Beta Band was a no brainer. Review by Jenell Kesler
Can anybody tell me what "reproduction of The Flower Press" is? I just came across that note and searched through all sleeves in the box but as far as I can tell there is only the CD as additional part. It's #3945, so I'd guess it's the limited version.
My number is higher than yours and no zine. I assume it's just in the lower numbers, super limited. Kind of ridiculous to not include it in all 5000 given the price.Great pressings though.
The sound is absolutely immaculate. Remastering is excellent. Packaging leaves something to be desired, but the vinyl is the star of the show, and it shines here.
I have a skip on B + A, though the record looks just fine.Oof, considering there is a 2LP release on the way, maybe I should send it back.Only got it, because I was given a 50€ gift card, otherwise I would never have payed so much for it. Decisions, decisions...
Agree that the packaging is cheap and nothing special but the vinyl sounds great. All vinyl cut at 33 1/3.
watching to future
Agreed with all comments, flimsy box, good sounding vinyl. It does amaze me though that for that price you get crappy paper inners. Stop this! Poly-lined can’t be that more expensive!
dead right there...but did you ever notice pulling a record from a poly sleeve there's normally no scratches or scuffs vs pulling one from a paper sleeve it's not always the best i.e. some labels care, some don't and it shows in the pressing plant handling too
Skipping on "It's over " is part of a recording, not of a damage. Just listen toa CD and you will hear the same.
Dude when it's on the CD too it means it's intentional. "No, it's on all three copies I've listened to" is an objectively stupid reply to "It's meant to skip". Why bother replying to something when your reply ignores totally what's being said? It is sublimely irrational of you.
No, definitely a faulty record. Third copy and it’s similar. Waiting for the black version now
I bought two copies of this ( numbered 34xx) but unfortunatly both skipped on "it's over"no idea why, the vinyl looked great.
The box is flimsy, but the vinyl sounds great, especially when compared to the reissues that were released a few years ago. Also, The Patty Patty Sound is a double instead of a single (as it should be).
Completely agree with Chalkers ( September 14, 2018 ). Great sound, but expensive !Flimsy & soft cardboard ONE BOX HOLDS ALL ( cost effetieve ), coloured vinyl ( looks good / attractive ),that's all it is!The new owners of copyright just know there's a niche market for this, limited edition 0f 5000.Probably as many people that could be fooled to buy this box.
I agree the box is kind of flimsy, but it’s really not expensive for what you get. I paid $60 and at 4x LPs that’s 15 a pop plus a CD to boot. I’m not sure anyone is being fooled. It sounds great from beginning to end. The box looks good on the shelf. Really the flimsiness is evidenced in that it comes with some rando creases. Maybe I’m easier to please. Hell, maybe I’m a fool and easily parted with my money but I think this is a good buy for a fantastic set of music.
First impressions; ultra flimsy packaging, especially considering the price tag. When you consider the care that was put into the recently reissued Soundtracks For The Blind album by Swans (also 4 lps). Listening to the album, it sounds good! The vinyl is completely level and the surface noise is absolutely minimal. The remaster is subtle to my ears (and I always thought that the original CD sounded pretty good anyway). I'm glad to finally own these fantastic EPs on vinyl, housed in their original beautifully quirky artwork but if I'm being honest the value of this box set is a little steep...
