Feb. 9: It's for the vinyl's proper sound level. The norm for cutting matrices recommends the playing time of about 19:30 minutes per side, into which limit we managed to stuff exactly 5 / 5 songs. The groove should not lead under the center label, where the needle can't follow. At the same time, the groove shall transfer all frequencies of the original master with utmost richness, strength and clarity. If the record is longer, the engineer has to cut low frequencies and/or damp the overall level slightly by -2dB.
We've chosen so called deep cutting, or "Loudness Priority" option, so it sounds properly. Those two tracks missing on the LP (Dreaming Bulldog and Flammarion Fatal Mix) are after all quite futile. Especially the last mentioned Mr. Necrocock hates.
