True Faith has been fixed and re-uploaded. I decided not to delete the original entry to preserve the comments, so please scroll down a couple of entries and happy listening. :)

The changes are as follows:

1. True Faith (now transfered from vinyl to avoid the glitch inherent on all digital sources like
2. 1963 (also transfered from vinyl for consistent sound)
3. Evil Dust (no change)
4. Paradise remix (still taken from
Retro, but with the clipping fixed and a little dynamic range trickery)
5. True Faith remix (no change)
6. True Dub (glitches fixed)
7. True Faith UK 7" (new transfer from vinyl instead of a re-edit)
8. True Faith Morning Sun edit (no change)

The transfer of Paradise was done by our good friend over at The Power Of Independent Trucking, and while it's not possible to put missing dynamics/audio/data into a sound file if it was never there, he was able to massage it a little and get it sounding better than just a straight rip from
Retro (which fell victim to the loudness war).

NOTE: the corrected file name should be "truefaithv3.zip" - I've verified that the complete contents will open properly.


  1. so, just to confirm... the new and improved "fixed" files are under the old link in the original entry?

  2. Yes, the download link under the True Faith entry is the corrected files.

  3. Thanks!

    Looking forward to the other reworks!

  4. I am very proud that somebody has taken the time and care to remaster one of the greatest bands to come out of Manchester properly.

    It take fans with there own time and there own love for the band to take on such a product themselves.

    It's really sad that a record company such as Rhino/Wb with millions of dollars and the best mastering equipment at there disposal released such a crap on hands product.

    I have quietly kept an eye on this project
    and i must take my hat off to you and your team for doing this for all to listen to for years to come.

    i just wish someone would take the time and care to restore the OMD singles and old Marc Almond singles ..

    I thank You for taking on such a endeavor and wish you the best.

  5. this is an absolutely brilliant piece of work

    well done and thank you

  6. Agree with Music Archivist's comments completely. I would buy a nicely and carefully done restoration if the record company bothered to make the effort, good economy or bad.
