7" vs 12"



Last night I dug out the 7" box set of Echo Dek. I'm not sure why I decided on that rather than the lp as it a lot more hassle than simply flipping over the lp once. Anyway,  I thought that I would conduct a little experiment and play the single and then the corresponding track from the album to see if there was any difference in the sound and do you know what, there is absolutely fuck all, surprise surprise. Of all the things I could have achieved last night I chose to do this so nobody else had to. I am sure that you are all happier in the knowledge that has been nagging you ever since passing up that reasonably priced box set in Fopp all those years ago as you already had it on vinyl. No need to thank me. One thing I will say is it's a cracking listen, however not sure the bass was that good for the foundations but it had Max nodding along. For me this was the last truly memorable Scream album

Primal Scream - Last Train

Thanks for undertaking this job- you've saved us all some worry and some time too.

I listened to Evil Heat the other day which was much better than I remembered.
