Guys and girls - i'm desperate and am turning to the avalanches fan community for help.

Back in 2000 I was able to get a copy of the first edition of "Since I Left You" the one before U.S. copyright laws forced them to remove many of the samples that made it so amazing. My wife's douchebag ex business partner took off with it (and a bunch of other crap). She's not even a fan and doesn't know what she even has. Its probably gone for good. I've been searching for it ever since, buying it 5 different times from various "rare" record sites......its always the wrong one.

I'm willing to pay whatever is reasonable to get a copy of the original, or even just a .zip of the tracks. This is for my own personal use.

I'm really out of ideas.

Can somebody help?

Thanks everyone.

I'm 99% sure the disc I have is the first pressing, but it's been so long I forget how to tell. Point me to a track/sample that's an easy giveaway, and if mine's the original, I'll send you a zip of the mp3s.

The beginning of track 3 "Radio" will have a short clip from a film of a guy breaking into the room of a drunken woman.

You got that .. . you got the first press.

Thanks Riko!!!!

slackjawdyokel that sounds like the normal version of Radio. Are you sure you know what you're talking about?

I know what slackjawdyokel is talking about. Before buying SILY I went ahead and downloaded some tracks, including Radio. That version of Radio had some dialogue at the start of the track and I'm guessing if your album has this dialogue then it's an original:

Guy knocking on a door - Johnny, Johnny come on open up! Johnny, Johnny
Johnny (slurring) - Out of my way I'm watching television
Guy - Are you crazy!? That's the test pattern
Johnny - I like it
---
Doctor - Well there are two things to be done, first of all we put him in the hospital and withdraw all television
Guy - I see
Doctor - And then we can do this [pushes a button]
Guy - Radio! Radio! Radio! Radio! (etc...)

That version of Radio runs about 4:54. I eventually bought SILY on CD here in the US and that whole dialogue was missing from Radio.
BTW I wouldn't mind getting a digital copy of the entire original album myself, if someone is willing to share.

Has Since I Left You ever had that "springtime" intro on any of the official albums, as heard in the Gimix mixtape?

I think so. I think my CD-copy has it. But I have to double check. I own two different versions of Since I Left You on LP and CD. They're different here and there. For example; half of the vocal samples in Frontier Psychiatrist is on either one resampled/remade.

And the version on Spotify doesn't have the flute loop in Summer Crane. And it's missing the Midnight Run sample "we would like one of your finest champagnes". (I could go on..,)
Seems like: Later release = less samples. :(

The original and re-release samples do not sound similar. Original is like the music vid; the re-release is pretty crap when you compare the two.

Google it. It's really easy to find lossless rip of original (2000) edition :)

You can tell if you have the original release because on the inside of the cd jacket opposite the cd there is not much text, whereas in later releases the text takes up the whole of the page as they had to disclose all the samples.

The easiest way is to go on SoulSeek and do a search for "avalanches radio". Most versions of this song will be 4:22. Ignore those. Instead look for a version that lasts for 4:52. Then just download the whole album where that version comes from.
The last time i was on SoulSeek, the users "jenkemforsale" and "fuckapurchase" both had the original version for download.
Hope this helps.
