Ash Ra Tempel – Seven Up

Ash Ra Tempel - Seven Up DS483p front

To me this sounds like they played a stereo tape into a reverb unit then encoded the result….


Release: DS483p

    Second go (see above). Downloaded again and all is well – the original try must have had an error in the file during transmission. Having really enjoyed The Cosmic Jokers release I am looking forward to this one!

    Well I’m underwhelmed by this. Too weird for my tastes, and the quad is pretty bad as OD says. Frankly I think an Ambi-SS decode of tbe stereo album would probably produce better results, this is just vague noise in the rears.

    What the…?

    I did find the content most interesting and very unique. I may be in the minority but I liked this LP and have listened to it several times now. Most likely will spin in again from time to time. Makes for a good background sound when you don’t really feel like listening to something with intent. Especially when the sound of silence is deafening. Perhaps if your dinner guest are over staying their welcome then put this one on.

    The Italian release has a most interesting cover photo showing Leary at the controls. He’s smiling. He must be happy. Wonder what a vacuum cleaner with a bagpipe attachment played backwards through a reverb unit and then encoded would sound like? Huumm.

    The Beatles “Revolution 9” comes to mind.

    Hi OD. Burnt to DVD-R as normal but PC reports as nothing there? I can see the image on the disc. Blew another and same result (Nero). Just did The Hoople and Focus at the Rainbow without any hitch. Anyone else tried to open? Thanks for the title btw!

      Not heard anything, hope there’s not a problem. Oh, i don’t recommend using Nero, Imgburn is far Superior when it comes to burning DVD-A/V’s

      Agreed, ImgBurn is by far the best software for burning DVD-A/Vs and also is one of the few that can blow SACD-R if you happen to have any of those.

      I did have a 50 spindle of Sony DVD+Rs that ImgBurn simply wouldn’t burn at all so I had to use Roxio for those but it is a bit temperamental. Lesson learned I switched backt to the Sony DVD-Rs I was using previously and ImgBurn has worked every single time.

      (I stick to Sony media as I have a Sony laptop and the builtin burner is a bit fussy about non Sony media.)

      Disc of Seven Up plays fine for me in my Oppo 95, playing the DVD-A MLP layer. Blown with ImgBurn.

    • Owen Smith May 16, 2015 at 20:02 #

      OK they’re not layers, but what is the correct term for the DVD-A part versus the DVD-V part? At the fundamental level all they are is an AUUDO-TS vs. a VIDEO-TS directory in the top level of the filing system in the ISO image.

      • Owen Smith May 16, 2015 at 20:02 #

        Correction: AUDIO-TS

        ImgBurn sourced and tried. Same result as Nero 😦 I can see the dark image on the surface of the DVD but opening in DVD Audio Extractor software or even Expolorer says nothing on disc. Not to worry – just one of those mysterious things (I used to be on IT Help Desk so used to it lol). I might try the disc on dedicated player to see later.

    Appreciate another Ash Ra Tempel release OD, thank you.

      In a little while, wait for the dissapointment of ‘Seven Up’ to die away

    That sounds like a warning…is it? 🙂
