    Yeah I also want to know what exactly rerecorded means. I love this record (I have the cd and every single released from it) so this concerns me. I read "the blurb" and it does not answer the question.

    So, the last reissue of this on vinyl was by Mute, who had the rights up through 2015. When that window was over, Moby got his masters back. And in wanting to reissue this for vinyl, had some sections he wanted to re-record, in order to make the album sound better than it ever has. So he did that on his own, and remastered the entire thing. Then, he's the one who approved the test pressings too.

    This is a cool pick, for sure, and a great looking package overall. Well done VMP!

    I remember Frank Zappa "re-recorded" his classic albums (Lumpy Gravy, We're Only In It For The Money, Ruben And The Jets) and it was a disaster.

    I like the fact Moby himself approved the pressing, that's pretty cool and ensures it's as he would want us to hear it.

    Really great job Team VMP, it looks great too!
