I'll probably get abuse because of this - but don't know where else to ask.

I'm transferring the non album b'sides to my ipod - but have a problem with Hijack My Heart. My copy is the clear vinyl 7" and alas the play back is dogged by a lot of static (more than I can remove in Adobe Audition).

Can anyone help me with a non MP3 copy? I can take a photo of my copy with the current newspaper to prove I actually own one.

It's the only one I'm having problems with - the others are fine (especially those from the "Complete Works" box set).

Please - somebody help!!!

75 fucking pounds for 1 single ???
And for a single containing 3 crappy songs ???
I wouldn't sell your mother for that price :)

To the topic starter : let's wait for the 3rd singles box set

I'd want 'em to throw in a 3" I Want It All as well.  Mom's been good to me...

Well - that's just the kind of reply I was expecting to get!

Not very useful... I never did work out why a lot of people on this site just seem to attack every comment or question.

The quality of the pressing on the clear vinyl version is not very good (probably got something to do with the type of plastic used) I was just hoping someone could help - a long time ago a kind soul on this website helped me with 2 cd's of all the 12" singles (saving me the job of transfering them myself) .. so maybe there is hope.

I like to balance the volume of tracks taken from different sources - that way I don't blast my ear drums on some and can hear probably on others...

I use Adobe Audition for this - but will not convert MP3 to WAV and then back to MP3..

Well, good for you.

Another cheapskate who wants something for free. 
That's kind of what I expected from JamesFrancisTaylor.



Thanks to you, CDs still cost $16.99.  Keep it up.  Aaaaaarrrrrr, matey!

For free ?!?!?! ---- Um - like - I've kinda already paid for the song... like when it was released!

and for that matter - if Queen would actually get off their asses and release these B-side tracks on CD - I'd buy it. Maybe one year it'll be the Christmas release....

Well, if you would actually get off your ass and buy the CD single, you wouldn't have this problem.

You want someone to give you a stunning digital quality version and then bitch about Queen releasing B-Sides.

They did.

You obviously didn't.

Not sure how that's their fault.

Anyway, if you're such an audiophile, why not record from the vinyl to your PC, as many of us who have old vinyl (that HASN'T been released on CD) did.

If you read my first post, you'll realise that I have transferred the vinyl recordings to PC - however my copy of Hijack has more surface static than Adobe Audition can remove (without detroying the audio).

The tracks from Complete Vision have turned out great (mind you it's only the second time I've ever played that record)

---

Anyway - some one was kind enough to help me .. so the problem is now solved.

I apologise unreservedly.

I had no idea you were an audiophile who DIDN'T look after his vinyl/needle.

You're like a black person in the KKK...

Now that's where you wrong... I do look after my vinyl and stylus - it's the quality of the pressing that's at fault - the single has been dogged by static from day one. Possibly due to the plastic used.

Didn't really notice it in those days - but now that everything is digital it shows up more (especially over headphones)
