    Thank you so much for the pristine rip of YMMLY. One of my favourite tracks from Olivia. Her collaboration with Chloe and David Aude is growing on me, rapidly. I love that she’s still relevant. Carry on! 😀

    thanks. Great single. I used to have the 7” version. I wonder why they made 12” and 7” versions of two songs that were exactly the same on both

    Jermajesty Reply:

    I’d usually guess so DJs etc could buy better quality sounding vinyl (grooves more spaced out on 12″), but then they go and stick it at 33rpm – a baffling move for sure?!

    DjPaulT Reply:

    You’re welcome Brian. They did this a lot in the Netherlands and Germany not sure why. I must admit though the tracks do sound much better spread out over one side of a 12″ as opposed to a 7″ so maybe that is why.

    Brian Reply:

    good answer actually. i always thought that 12” singles were for longer songs only. thats all a 12” single was to me. lol. i wasnt aware of the sound qualities, then again i had a crappy record player lol. learn something new everyday

    I’m so very, very happy with this excellent rip. As a lifelong ONJ fan, YMMLY is one of those songs I really wanted a clean rip of. Love it, as well as those other ONJ tracks you have lovingly re-mastered. A heartfelt Thank You from Michael in Sweden.

    You’re welcome Michael. This one of the greatest lost ONJ tracks 🙂

    Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU Paul!!!

    It’s great to ask an receive only a couple of days later… Thanks a lot for that!

    How much time per track do you spend cleaning up you’d say? I tried a couple of rips with Audacity and mine are nowhere as half as close as good as yours!

    Thanks again Monsieur.
