Yep, these plants can get backed up. Contact the few remaining pressing plants still in operation and ask what their current wait time is. Delays and longer-than-expected lead times should be factored into your release strategy.
By then, they may have forgotten about it. Call the plants. Know the timeframes. Plan accordingly. Happy tbt. Inner groove distortion is also a very real concern, yet few bands actually sequence their albums properly to compensate for this when sending in their masters to the vinyl plant.

On The Loose gets things started with a trademark keyboard riff before exploding into full motion, Sadler's vocals mixing perfectly with Ian Crighton's engaging riffs and solos. Saga may not have been the wisest when it came to the placement of slow songs, many times the tracks on their albums are out of place, ruining the momentum and overall flow. Time's Up defies that logic by offering a slow song as the second track and manages to keep attention through the whole thing.
It may be the interesting use of voice effects on the chorus or just the overall beautiful melodies throughout, but this one's a killer. Crighton's instantly recognizable riff off the top makes this one worth every second, especially with Sadler's more delicate vocals and backing keyboards in the breakdown nearing the end. While the rest of the album may not be quite as recognizable as the first three songs all regularly rotated on radio there is no drop in quality at all.
Amnesia is a quirky rocker, as is Frames. Conversations provides a nice instrumental break in the ending trio of songs, proving that while it may not be a YYZSaga can still break out the impressive instrumental weaponry.
No Stranger Chapter 8 is the impressive opus that finishes off the album with an emotional bang while carrying on the ''Chapters'' series that the band began on their first album and would not revisit until Full Circle in along with the considerable slower No Regrets Chapter5. However, it's The Interview that steals the show, thanks to Sadler's amazingly emotional delivery and the incredibly true and eerie story told by the lyrics.
Overall this is a solid album, one that no progger should be without. Canadians too, you should all have this one. While it may often be frowned upon to give a Prog-Related album 5 stars this is an album that would be more comfortable in the Crossover Category.
Not to argue the place of the band on the website, just this album in particular. Do yourself a favor and check it out! Synths and drums to open as vocals join in. The guitar comes to the fore on the chorus. The focus is on the vocals and the beat. This was huge in Europe. It hits the ground running and I love the chorus. My favourite on the album. Then it kicks into an eighties sounding tune.
It settles back as contrasts continue. I'm not a fan of the spoken words and eighties sounding synths but the guitar is good and I like the sound of this track late. It turns spacey late. An interesting tune. I like it. The guitar lights things up before 4 minutes. A calm with synths 6 minutes in and almost spoken words follow. Worlds Apart was Saga's breakthrough album and listening to it now, I can certainly understand why. The songs are catchy and accessible, the production - even if not really my cup of tea - is clearly improved over that of previous albums and the band sounds more confident here than before.
Even if the self-titled debut from already featured all the aspects of the distinctive Saga sound, it wasn't until the present album that the band really "found themselves". They happened to find themselves in a place a little bit further away from progressive Rock, however.
I used to have somewhat mixed feelings about this development: On the one hand, Saga were about to close the door on the genre of music that I like the most, but on the other hand they were improving in most other respects. At the end of the day, I have to say that this is a great album even if it was in some ways a step in the wrong direction.
I clearly see it's qualities, and I enjoy all of the songs. Indeed, the first six or seven tracks are all time Saga classics and the album as a whole is of course an all time Rock classic despite the relative weakness of the last two tracks.
I think it is fair to say that Worlds Apart was a kind of transitional album for Saga. While being the last album of their early progressive period, it was also, at the same time, the first album in their more "commercial" period. The fantasy-tinged LP) pictures of the first three albums have here been replaced with an altogether more candid image and the corresponding changes were made in the production and songwriting. This is in many ways a more streamlined Saga.
But they did still manage to hold on to Prog here with many short but Dont Waste Your Time - Various - Our Best To You (Vinyl instrumental breaks and powerful guitar and keyboard solos. Worlds Apart was also the last album to feature "chapters" until when they picked it up again. Highly recommended! I still remember how they came to music world as next Rush canadian shadow, but with lighter and more modern now we can say - "more 80's" sound.
For me they are next to Marillion band who build the ground for neo-prog coming. I think only some their early LP) are interesting enough for listeners, and that is one of them. Heay use of synthesizers was very popular at that period in all prog-rock, best illustration is Rush albums after "Signals". Really, Rush music starting from their "Signals"album is quite similar to Saga music of the same period.
Below are ten albums that have miraculously made it past all of the production pitfalls to stand proudly as some of the very best sounding inch vinyl LPs currently available. Whether you dig the music or not, spinning any of these LPs will give Dont Waste Your Time - Various - Our Best To You (Vinyl a good idea of what your stereo rig is capable of.
Chances are, however, that at least one of these LPs will transport you to the quasi-psychedelic glory land of vinyl at its best. The grandfather of grunge is one of the most outspoken advocates for great sound quality, and his masterpiece Harvest may be the main reason he wants your stereo and source not to suck. This edition, cut directly from analog masters and pressed in g vinyl, brings Neil and his tasty Nashville studio group into your living room.
Every swishy filter sweep, grinding bass tone, and live drum beat is rendered with sculptural realism. The ten-minute, Hendrix-trouncing guitar solo that opens this LP is so raw, so up-in-your-face, and so far off to the right channel that it sounds like Eddy Hazel set his amp up in your house. Consider a seat belt. Of all the version of this masterpiece on vinyl, this one recorded in the mid s with Fritz Reiner waving the baton at The Chicago Symphony Orchestra is the gold standard.
When the low string drone starts the first movement, turn up the volume and brace yourself for a long slow crescendo up to the brass fugue that, on a great stereo, will make The Who sound minuscule.
