Mine arrived on Saturday (28th October). It's OK, The images aren't that good a quality, the US Urban Outfitters version has better quality pictures. It has a the exact same layout as the original UK pressing, but the centre labels on the vinyl look more like the US version.

no sticker, or anything on it, to justify the new release?

Mine hasn't dispatched yet. :(

I've seen via Discogs and eBay that it's a 180g release?

Nothing.

And yep, it's a 180g release. Comes with a Vinyl Solutions digital download code. I haven't played the vinyl to check the sound quality yet, and I haven't downloaded using the code to check if it's a remastered version.

The inner sleeve is in MUCH thicker card that the original UK press.

It's a well made item, just a shame about the image quality.

Oh, you got the original to compare? I own it and that's why wasn't interested in this one, but if it's remastered... Once you played it can you share your thoughts please? Cheers:)

Yes, the download code is on the inside. I think it would be a shame for you to not open it an appreciate the inside, after all, this is in no way a limited edition release and won't hold any value for the future whatsoever.

It's the same as the UK original yes. The UO one though has a differnt text layout on the inner, I don't have the original US copy, so I don't know if it's true to that original.

Much thicker than the original release? So not as flimsy as the UO release?

That would explain the low picture quality... They may have basically scanned a random cd cover and enlarged it to match a 12" cover size!

The lyrics font is the same of the 1996 original or the US Urban? Can we get a pic? Thanks!

On the back it says: "1996 Virgin Records Ltd. A Universal Music Company"

The original 1996 release just had: "1996 Virgin Records Ltd"

i can confirm that the whole cover is in a much more thicker cardboard than the UO release.

sorry, can't help with that, i didn't open my vinyl, and i'm not planning to... i just can say that the front and back cover are the very same as the 1996 release. The spine text is different, the '96 version read "SPICE GIRLS SPICE" (all in capital letters). This new release reads "spice girls ° spice" (lowercase letters and a mid air dot between "spice girls" and "spice)

The 'Girls' font on the front is the same as the UK original, and the font inside used for the lyrics is also the same as the UK original :-)

Just listening to the vinyl. It hasn't been remastered. Sounds the same as my original copy. Have tried downloading the digital version using the digital download code. It says "Congratulations, we have validated your code", it then tried to load a download link but it just disappears. No download link gets generated. Useless.

Because the vinyl was via amazon, i downloaded their auto rip thingy. 320kbps mp3 quality, the volume had been increased, sounds crap. I've contacted the digital download people and they're trying to sort the download code thing out.

I contacted the company who do the digital downloads. They investigated and told me that the record company had yet to forward them a master copy for them to upload for users to then download. They said It should be sorted/active shortly, but gave no date. They said because I had created an account on the redeem site, and because i'd already entered my download code, it should just appear in my available downloads lists when it's finally up there.
