I jumped on the deal, but of course my box came with the FAULTY disc. frown.gif And EMI has been merged into Warner so now I'm trying to track down SOMEONE who can find out if there is a replacement available in their stocks

Faulty disc?

Mine is on its way - is there something I need to look for?

Yes, if you do a little searching on the web, apparently the DTS surround sound version on the DVD has glitches as well as a problematic transfer. There was a fixed version of the DVD issued soon after release that corrected both of these issues along with apologies from the band and promises that all future versions of the set would include the fixed version of the DVD, but apparently that's not the case with the Popmarket stock. It is obvious that the fixed version of the disc has a small horizontal line on the right side of the label imprinted on the DVD under the "duration",etc. text.

If you don't care to play the 5.1 channel version of the album, then no worries, but if you care then you'll want to get it replaced. I'm pursuing a few different avenues to find out if I can get a fix (which is now problematic because EMI, which released this set has been bought out by Universal Music which seems to have no idea about the issue).

I bought it for the 5.1 mix, sigh.

What did PopMarket have to say?

That's too bad frown.gif. If you have no luck with Warner then contact Popmarket to get a refund.

Apparently it's worse than just the 3 glitches -- the mastering was flawed as well -- apparently the multichannel mix was "remastered" after Steve Wilson did his thing, which resulted in some brickwalling. The "fixed" version removes this "remaster" and brickwalling effect. frown.gif

I tried contacting EMI but no luck as they have since been bought up by a larger label.

I'd be satisfied if someone would just burn me a copy of the fixed version -- I mean I have the packaging and have bought it....

Anyone out there want to be kind to me? (PM if you can help)

I posted the Popmarket link over at SHF and have since eaten some humble pie about this. Did the corrected version ever come out in the anniversary edition or did the record company just do one pressing and send the corrected version out to whoever contacted them about it? The pessimist in me thinks they never fixed it in the first place.

Don't feel bad as I posted the Popmarket link here. How could we know that the sets Popmarket was selling were the bad DVD? I'm sure they will let anyone return the set if it is not the corrected DVD.

I've since found out that this Thick As A Brick set is now deleted from the catalog, so I'm assuming they're just dumping whatever stock they have leftover through Popmart...and probably have no clue that there's anything wrong with the discs. The company that bought up EMI claims no knowedge. I've tried. Also tried through Jethro Tull's store and they said they have no more copies of the repaired disc and don't ever expect anymore since the item is gone from the catalog. frown.gif

You're correct, it's more than the 3 glitches, the overall sound quality is improved.

I'm still waiting to hear their policy on this, sigh

And it was even worse for me - instead of $25 and free shipping, to send to Canada they charged $35 plus $15 shipping eek.gif

You're right Bill. I shouldn't feel bad because a company can't be bothered to fix their product. I've been trying to remember if the corrected version ever came out in the DE and only recall it was sent out if it was requested. Of course it's probably sitting on a shelf somewhere in a warehouse. My guess it was right next to the DE they just sold on Popmarket. rolleyes.gif
