It will be interesting to know whether it was pressed in Greece. Maybe some more info will surface
I was told by someone at UMG that they are using a Dutch pressing plant now. I would have thought that it will arrive in the Uk and other places soon. I can get some real information from UMG when they go back to work after the New Year.
Does this person at UMG kno if any of the stuff from the Lou Archive will be released any time soon?

No. But they have access to the internal database of releases. (I once asked if I could access the tape archive but drew a blank. )

My contact at UMG has been away so no news there. But a buyer of '3rd' on hoffman forums reports poor sound :

'There’s all sorts of rumble and distortion coming from undefined tones. Bass seems like it’s a bit overblown, a little too boosted but not well defined, only on some songs though. It’s a shame because it’s a solid 180g pressing, even comes in a MoFi style poly sleeve. Positive note, the treble and Lou’s voice sound nice. Pale Blue Eyes plays fine.'

I wont be able to get any information from UMG on these releases. That window is now unexpectedly closed.
