Share - Blue Zoo "2X2" +extras FLAC

Postby deevo0 » Fri Feb 08, 2013 1:22 am

The latest rip in the never-on-CD series is Blue Zoo's LP "2 x 2" (1983) plus a bunch of singles and b-sides. There are good mp3 rips of this album on the Web (check out Fade 2 Grey), but I couldn't find any in FLAC.

What I most appreciate about this band is its stylistic diversity. Except for "Cry By Cry," my favorites are not the synthpop show tunes, but the more off-kilter ones: "John's Lost," "Open Up," "These Days," "Chameleon Waves."

I divided the files into two downloads:

2 X 2 Plus Extras
Download Link: http://netkups.com/?d=614151d1751ed

02 John's Lost

04 You Can Count On Me
05 Love Moves In Strange Ways
06 Forgive And Forget
07 I’m Your Man
08 Open Up

18 Off To Market (Dub) (12 inch bside)

05 I’m Your Man (12 inch)
06 Love Moves In Strange Ways (7 in.)
07 Loved One’s An Angel (7 inch)
08 Somewhere In The World There's A Cowboy Smiling (Instr.)

You can read about the band on the following sites:

The track listing and other album and single info is here:

p.s. Somewhere in the world there is a cowboy who is NOT smiling. My copy of this 12" has a flaw, so the beginning of this song sounds wonky. If anybody has a good flac rip of this song, please post. Otherwise, I might eventually buy another copy.

I checked the Audacity file, and it shows stereo. I looked at the flac output in Foobar, and it shows stereo. Can you tell me why you think its mono? I mean, maybe it is, and I accidentally did the USB recording in mono, but I'm not seeing it.

Hmm, that's strange. I put the files in Wavelab for a proper mastering. I recognized that the album files and some of the single files were mono. You can hear this, when you in front of the speakers. And i double checked this with my vinyl copy.
