Robert Christgau doesn't get it: "They're still hyped as "avant-garde." Probably because they mix their twitty, intermittently tuneful art-pop with Nino Rota homages and stereo effects that go back to the house of Gary Usher. C+" What an ass!


aka "Corroboree", there were 4 different covers for this LP. Same design, different color scheme.


Allmusic:
Because of the hurried schedule of newfound international success, the follow-up to True Colours suffered. Waiata follows much of the same formula of its predecessor, though in a slightly darker form that often lacks the punch that made True Colours great. Despite a couple of classic singles – "One Step Ahead" and "History Never Repeats" – and a handful of other inspired tracks, the album marks the band's first lateral move. "Waiata" is the Maori word for "party" (the album was given the aboriginal party title, Corroboree, in Australia). Following in the trend of True Colours, A&M issued three different colored covers for the worldwide release.

No music was harmed in the making of this vinyl rip.





This is what I do in general. Not every step is done for all rips:
LP > Rega P1 with Ortofon Super 20 > TC-750LC > E-Mu 0202 > Adobe Audition 3 (AA) @ 96kHz 32bit float > Manual click removal in AA > Click Repair set @ 20 > AA used to balance L/R > (for MONO: Equalizer (from the ClickRepair guy) used to combine L+R >) AA to split tracks, fade in/out, and for manual click removal >

for 24bit: use AA to truncate the 32bit file >
for 16bit: Izoptope RX Advanced to resample the 32bit file to 44.1kHz > and then to dither to`16bit using MBIT+ >

All > Trader's Little Helper to FLAC and (for 16bit: sector align if necessary, pad) > MP3 Tagger to edit tags.

"16bit" = 16bit at 44.1kHz
"24bit" = 24bit at 96kHz
