Hi Paul. I just checked out Same Language As Me on the bonus disc and I can't hear clicks. Have you tried playing the CD on another player or ripping it onto a computer and checking it out there?
Glad you're enjoying the bonus disc. Probably my favourite too.
Yes, I popped them into an audio editor and there are visible glitches. The most noticeable one occurs at 1:31.90 but there are three or four others, They seem to coincide with percussion hits, which made me wonder whether they were just the result of too much top in the mastering/tape transfer but, as I say, they're visible as glitches and can be cleaned up.
My speakers are (deliberately) very mellow with tamed highs and the clicks jumped out of them.
What's interesting, is that I can also hear them in the Spotify stream, which is why I thought I'd seek advice before returning the set.
Out of interest, can you say what the source was for this track? Was it taken from a bootleg, does Universal have the master tape or was it taken from the radio station's own archive?
