Had an Elvis Costello vinylfest today. I listened, in order of release to:

My Aim is True
This Year's Model
Armed Forces
Get Happy!

Excellent stuff!
I have more, up to Imperial Bedroom, then I went off him somewhat.
Excellent albums that still sound fresh.

Get Happy! Is s bit of a forgotten gem

They are all good...but GH is rather special, to me.

Giving you away like motel matches...

Blistering live performance of dinosaur trio at their absolute best.

Emerson, Lake and Palmer 'Live at the Mar Y Sol Festival '72'

As a bonus this CD is pretty damn well recorded with fine dynamics and separation on vocals, bass and keys - only the drums can sound a little 'tinny'. But, hell, the performance is amazing!

Groovy, man. :grin: :dance: :banana-rock:
I have a problem with the CD of it. My machine & spare machine does exactly the same thin. Put a pause between tracks, the same way MP-3 carries off. It is an official CD but utterly useless to me.

Apparently there was two releases of this CD.. What label is yours on & the cat number?
My copy is on V2 / Shout Factory. Cat nr: VNL23102 and it does have very short silent gaps between tracks, but that doesn't bother me. On Amazon there are some comments about these silent spaces and it would appear to be a mastering problem. The disc is officially approved by EL&P and not a bootleg.

Discogs has this listed as the european release and there is another US version - probably using the same masters. Additionally there appears to be an LP edition put out as a Lim Ed. by Sony.

Edit: You could try ripping the CD to a computer and editing out the annoying gaps using a software utility like Audacity.
