54-40 - Sweeter Things (Best Of) (CD / 1991)








A fine best of package here incorporating the bands first three releases recorded in flac with scans. I lost track of 54-40 following this release. Perhaps it was the changing of music tides and my new found interest in everything rave/techno and electronic. Either way, this compilation brings back some crystal clear memories of good times and friends during my late 80's time frame. If anyone is interested, I can post the second and third release by them as well. Thanks as always. Enjoy your weekend!

    1. Thank you! I have some 16 Bit, but not that single release. Most of what I have is in 320 format. I have some singles and the only LP release somewhere in my files.

    2. found Too fast to live, but not in 320. I have the entire 16BIT discography in FLAC somewehere. So, up to you if you want to share it in this form.

      Coincidentally, do you know if there is a comprehensive compilation for SVEN VATH including his early stuff (16bit, OFF, etc.) and his solo works like L'esperanza and Harlequin?

      [I realize that 16bit is more of a pre-SNAP project than Sven Vath, but ...]

    3. AWESOME! Thanks for the shares! I had a few items in 320 format, so this will be superb. As for Vath, I've yet to see such a release regarding all his efforts. I would certainly want to have that compilation. Let me dig about discogs more. Thanks again!

    4. LMK if you find the 16Bit in FLAC. I have yet to open these links. The last link is fractured. Thanks again!

      Delete
    5. yeah, filestream is a bit weird. The links aren't "fractured". If you are using jdownloader or similar, you have to set it to only download a maximum of one chunk. Or download the lst link manually, should take less than 2 minutes.

  2. Thanks for all you do on this blog. I really enjoy it! I would love to hear the 2nd and 3rd records by 54-40. I've only heard the 1st record.

  3. Great release, as always!

    thank you!

    new NIN EP (cover looks remarkably like an old EP of theirs): http://filecrypt.cc/Container/F81FFBC4A5

    also, I have everything by 16BIT. I'll dig up that single and send it to you, then you can choose if you want to release it.
