    Wow, that Blue Nile release caught me by surprise. Was totally unaware that they were planning to release this – I had it in mind that the first two album reissues were where it would stop,

    Contentious statement coming up: I prefer this to ‘Hats’ (which seems to be the one constantly lauded by the critics).
    I find the songs on ‘Peace…’ to be much more rounded out and developed. ‘Hats’ seemed a bit too laid back and mono-paced after the highs and lows of ‘A Walk Across…’.
    ‘Peace…’ recaptures some of what was missing from ‘Hats’ IMHO.
    Having said that ‘Hats’ is still a great album :-)

    Unfortunately, the remastering on the Blue Nile release has been screwed up – several people online (myself included) have spotted serious digital distortion on the track “Family Life” that was not present on the original release. Looking at the files in an audio editor, it looks as if the level has been turned up such that digital clipping now occurs – it sounds pretty dreadful as a result. I’ve flagged it to the contact addresses on the Blue Nile’s site, Universal’s site and Calum Malcolm’s site, but no response from any of them as yet. IMHO, it’s serious enough that they will need to fix it and repress the disc.

    I’ve seen your comments on amazon, Simon, and quite agree. Keep us updated on any response/feedback you might get. Now I am wondering if the empty spaces in HMV, that were still completely filled with this deluxe halfway through last week, are a result of withdrawing the release.
