Those of you who follow Recycle may be interested to know that one of our partners - Drew Crumbaugh, a.k.a. The Analog Loyalist - has put his exceptional skill to work in remastering a treasure trove of mid-'80s New Order live shows. These tapes came directly from Peter Hook several years ago.
A careful restoration of Joy Division/New Order's years on Factory Records (and maybe a little before and after).
All tracks were taken from the best/earliest possible sources to avoid modern mastering techniques which crush the dynamics. Tracks sourced from vinyl have been carefully cleaned and EQ levels have been tweaked for consistency. The artwork was scanned at the highest possible resolution and the type was reset when possible using the original fonts.
All of these singles are out-of-print. Many of the tracks have never appeared on CD. This was a labor of love from a small, devoted circle of fans.
These singles changed my life. I hope they change yours, too. If you like what you hear support the band by purchasing their catalog.
