is there a quality difference between clear and black vinyl on this record? some oppinion?gibts ein starken soundunterschied zwischen der clear und der black vinyl edition bei der lp? würd mich interessieren.

clear edition is perfect, so I would go for that one

Now you know what we were listening to in 1992. Timeless music. Not heard Eliya before, oh my word beautiful track.

Eliya is beautiful, but I really love the Practopia EP tracks too. The Archive series was mastered a bit too loud IMO, glad to get this on vinyl.

Was that on CD? Don't do CD's lol 2 more words

Eliya was the highlight of the Archive series for me. Beautiful to have it available on vinyl now.

where is the black vinyl edition ?.................. .... ..... ....

Initial vinyl clear (sold out in hours...)I believe Black vinyl is coming soon

Bleep is currently offering black vinyl version as a pre-order with an 8/31/17 ship date; the clear ltd variant is listed as sold out on their site. Most other vendors either specify clear vinyl or don't state color at all. I know that doesn't exactly answer question; perhaps initial run was clear, with black to follow, whereas it appears that with Electro-soma proper there was the blue/black variation from the outset? Just a theory.

Don't think there is black vinyl, ive been looking online right now for copies...
