Hoping that anyone can shed some light on the original versions of Blissard on vinyl.
Discogs lists 3 versions:
1. Offworld OW002, Italian pressing
2. Stickman Psychobabble 003, German pressing
3. Columbia 483786-9, Norwegian pressing
I suppose this is the order in which they were released, with the Italian being the true first pressing. Does anyone know if that is correct?
I have the Italian pressing and it comes with brown labels, similar to the cd version. The Stickman version seems to have bright blue labels instead. Are there any additional differences between these versions?
Finally, the matrix numbers differ between the Italian and German pressings. I suppose this indicates different masterings. Which one sounds better? Moreover, I recall complaints about excessive hiss on Blissard vinyl. Is this for all versions, or only limited to one of these pressings?
