I just picked up a new 33 rpm vinyl copy of Eno's Another Green World from Sam the Record Man in Belleville. It has a sticker on the wrapping that says it's a remaster but there are no indications on the sleeve or label except saying its on the astral wrecks label, who or when the remastering was done. I tried to find out on line and I am aware it was reissued in 2004 on cd and most recently in 2017 on 45 rpm half speed remasters on abbey road. Thing is when I check the writing on the inner rings of the disk it appears to have abbey road etched in. If anyone knows what I have here- a vinyl version of the 2004 reissue or a 33 rpm version of the 2017 reissue or something else? Thanks

Give this a try - it should list details from every release

Thanks! Looks like it's a 2018 reissue. I guess it's a 33.5 rpm version of last years 45 rpm but on a u.s. Label- astralwerks

I have the two LP 45 RPM version and it sounds great.

It would be fun to compare the sound of the two versions. I have to say the packaging of mine is very basic and the graffics are very slightly blurred like an old photo copy. Otherwise sound is excellent and the vinyl is quiet.

There was a very convincing bootleg out in the world that was made to look like a Japanese pressing. Maybe that's it.

Certainly the quality of the cover is bootleg-ish. The number on the record corresponds to the discogs entry for a 2018 astralwerks reissue. Given the engraved "Abby road" on the inner rings it would seem to indicate that it may be a cheaply done, American, 33 rpm version of the 45rpm remasters. In any event it is the only new release of this album that I have seen out this way.
