    It was ripped however with my older inferior equipment so it could use an update at some point 🙂

    Wow! Awesome! Howard is so great! The CD remasters are great but you can’t beat the warmth of an amazing vinyl rip.

    Thank you!

    Hi Paul, sorry to ask, but PLEASE could you re-rip “You Know I Love You… Don’t You?” (UK 12″). This remix is exceptional! If you listen to the vinyl loud you’ll hear incredible synth sounds popping all round the room. Certainly favourite HoJo remix! Thank you!

    Fantastic took this back in the days when i only took 320 not FLAC as i was unaware of what they were exactly. Please ignore above request for now as LTGTKYW is still up. Please re-rip 2010’s ‘You know i love you… Don’t you’ and 2010’s ‘Pearl in the shell (US 12″ promo)’ rips. Both have been down for at least four years now. In fact i requested re-ups in 2013 for both. I will burn a Hojo BTG CD or 2 once i have the re-ups. Many thanks. Great to see another Hojo post after 18 months.

    LTGTKYW was ripped using my older inferior equipment so I am going to re-rip it at some point. Anything 2012 or older was ripped with that equipment.

    NKelly Reply:

    Of course i completely understand that what i mean is that the rip of LTGTKYW is live and always has been. The other two 12″s have been dead for four years and therefore of much more importance as many of us followers of your wonderful site do not have these rips at all !!

    I am also enjoying “the warmth” of your miraculous rips Paul!! I love how you cause so much excitement, especially when it’s a revered artist like Mr. Howard Jones. I feel so passionately over the service you provide for us Paul. If I go on with my raves it’s just that I want you to know how much I cherish what you do. You’re giving me and others the music that matters, not just for nostalgic and sentimental reasons, but the incredible education to those who might’ve missed out the first time, or those of us who never knew a 12-inch existed in the first place. You’re a dream maker come true. Just today, where I work, I was listening to a CD compilation of your absolutely PERFECT!!! O.M.D. collection. Oh how you make my heart beat strong and pure. Thank you so very, EXTREMELY MUCH Paul for these special and precious gems. You moisten my eyes and stain my cheeks with tears of euphoria!!!

    Always,

    Jeff
