Hi Capullo- I’m seriously contemplating purchasing this but am a little hesitant based on the comments on the Discogs page about some of the songs suffering with poor sound quality. Have you experienced any of this with your copy?

dubba - sound quality is excellent! deep and broad bass frequency. really phat!

concerning the comments on discogs. it seems somebody got a bad pressing of LP2. must be a factory issue slipped through quality check, i guess. my two LP's are both top.

this comment on discogs i can confirm but it doesn't really matter. some blurry moments i don't pay too much attention when listening to these beautiful tunes.

->but unfortunately on two of the tracks (A3 Eastern Memphis and D1 Rebel Am I) the brass instrument (not too sure if trumpet or thrombone) sounds really distorted, probably a source issue. I am pretty sure it is not my copy as the online samples from Honest Jon's page sound the same.

how much overlap between this and Cobra Style or other similar releases?

i too am pretty put off from paying top dollar for this if it has quality issues, both pressing and source material. but i could be persuaded if it has crucial material not present on the similar releases on heartbeat or Fams own label.

yes JB, many tracks are also found on previous releases. i don't have them so i don't know about the sound quality compared to the soul constitution compilation. despite the few seconds where the horns sound a bit bad, overall sound quality on this compilation is superb!

The sound quality on the Heartbeat releases was more than adequate
the sheer number of overlapping tracks makes the Dubstore compilation useful only for those who didn't buy the Heartbeat releases or the completists

That's sort of what I am thinking also.

There is the matter of different credits to what appear to be the same tracks. That may indicate different versions of the songs. Or not.

Thanks for the listings, makes the comparison a lot easier that way
