SHARE: Positive Noise - Change of Heart (High-Res FLAC)

Postby ApolloBoy » Tue Dec 24, 2019 12:27 am

Hi everyone! It's been a while since I've uploaded anything here, my personal life has kept me rather busy and I've also been building up my record collection as of late. Anyway, I'd like to share one of my favorite obscure synthpop albums, Positive Noise's sophomore album "Change of Heart", released in 1982.

This one took a little while to clean up as my copy isn't in the best shape (that's what happens when you buy from Discogs I suppose!), but the results still turned out pretty nice I think. There are a few little pops here and there but nothing distracting. I also used a new cartridge for this rip, an Audio-Technica AT450, as opposed to the Ortofon 2M Blue I've been using previously. I'll be using this from now on as it's been producing incredible results!

Here's the link, and as always, this rip is encoded as 24-bit, 96 kHz FLAC files for optimum quality:
Feel free to distribute my vinyl rips or use them as part of your compilations!

Although I'm not downloading this (I have it already, just not in 24/96), I'm sure that it will sound great. Your earlier rips were outstanding. Thanks!
