Yes, we know, the Georgia Ruth LP was due to be released today. We’re really sorry to report that we’re not going to have it until after Christmas. As you know, we don’t cut any corners at Diverse. When we received the test pressings, we tried various TPs on various turntables and on some of them, there was a skip on track three. We sent one to Air so that Ray Staff could cast his expert eye (and ear) over it and give us his opinion. The long and short of it was that odds on, it would be fine for most people but for us, most isn’t good enough. Ray re-cut the side and we’re now waiting on a second batch of test pressings. These are due in around two weeks. Hopefully there will be no issue with these and we can give Pallas the thumbs up straight away. We can then give you an accurate date on which to expect the record.
Obviously it’s gutting for us to miss Christmas as many of you have been waiting a while and some wanted them for presents. We just felt that rather than settle for a pressing we weren’t happy with, we’d prefer to get it right and produce an amazing product that we’re all proud of. We thank you for your continued patience and hope it’ll all be worth it in the new year!!
