Joy Division - She's Lost Control / Atmosphere (1980)

Finally, a rip of the original vinyl single has surfaced. 24bit lossless transcoded to V0 for those who care. This version of She's Lost Control has different instrumentation and an entire additional verse. I'm not sure if Atmosphere is the same as the version you all got on some fancy schmancy downloaded JD compilation. But if it is, fuck you this song is incredible and the rip is straight from 1980. Though it's only a single, this is arguably the perfect Joy Division release, pairing some of Curtis' darkest work with his most ethereal. An essential.

Download if you want I guess. It's only 16 megabytes so whatever.

    wtf do you think adding tags degrades the quality or something

  8. Tag it yourself, stop whining. I use discogs tagger in foobar2000 to retag almost everything anyway.

    Does anyone know where one can find the 24 bit lossless rip of this?
