Almost like a repeating diagonal saw tooth pattern throughout the track.

I'm assuming that this is present on all the new pressings, but in theory should be on all the previous vinyl pressings too if it's down to the nature of the audio?

Hopefully you can see what I mean in the picture

Yes, can see what you mean and can see it on my copy. Can also see it on the 2015 remaster ( was it 2015? ) but no, i can't see it on my old 80s original.

Oh btw, anyone struggling to slip the Obi band back on, i found it seems easier if you slip it on from the bottom end. Dunno why but yeah. Seems to work better for me.

Compare and contrast:

From the Dig/Peter Saville link I posted on the previous page:

Quote:
Elegia

The instrumental cut Elegia was originally worked up for the soundtrack to a film i-D magazine intended to commission but which never got off the ground. Nonetheless, the track – which was inspired by Ennio Morricone’s score for the duel scene in Sergio Leone’s classic western For A Few Dollars More – had a haunting grace which affects the listener even without a visual counterpart.


From The Quietus review:

Quote:
there is the definitive, IC-memorialising 17-minute version of ‘Elegia'. It’s utterly superb and on it you can really hear their daily routine of coming in from a club and watching a film together bleeding into the music most clearly, not just with the obvious touchpoint of Ennio Morricone’s Once Upon A Time In The West soundtrack but, whether intentional or not, because it really sounds they are scoring some as yet unseen Dario Argento movie.


So were they (A) scoring a movie commissioned by i-D magazine or were they (B) memorialising Ian Curtis, and happening to sound like they were scoring an unseen movie? I suppose you could say both A & B. Sorta.

But I'm going for (A).

They expressly say it had nothing to do with Ian.

I made my own Analog Loyalist special vocal mix of Let’s Go, using a hi-res download of the box version. I used wizardry to hijack the vocal from the best copy of the vocal “demo” (I think we can safely call it an outtake instead), restored some of the ambiance spleeter-type extractions remove to the naked vocal, and mixed it in. I love it. Trying to straight overlay the vocal on top of the Definitive version doesn’t quite work as the Def version has about 15-16 seconds more audio between verses 2 and 3, so I needed to align the last verse separately. Also, I made sure to EQ-match the “demo” to the Definitive version before doing anything else.

Thoughts?

I'm sure someone could do a better job than me, but it's such a shame that a vocal didn't survive

As hoped - Drew has done a way better job than I did! Great work mate.

Doing the EQ match and spending a bit of time cleaning up the artefacts from the extracted vocal track was well worth the effort
