So I was at the Brooklyn Steel show last Saturday and I saw the Switched On remaster available for purchase. Bought a shirt instead, figuring the remaster would be up on Amazon Music soon enough (all the other remasters are there). But this is not there yet. Any reason why? Also, they have never had Not Music available and I can't figure out why that is.

I'm not sure 100% but I don't believe there is a remaster release of NOT MUSIC.

Not Music isn't on Spotify either, nor is First of the Microbe Hunters. Refried and AT were missing, but became available again when the remasters were released - strange that they are missing from Aamazon

Petur I agree there is no remaster of NOT MUSIC yet. Amazon doesn't have any version of that album at all. I don't think they have microbe either, but they have other EPs. I would think they'd have at least all r full album releases.

You can find NOT MUSIC as a blue vinyl release on discogs.I just bought a copy a few months ago.My copy was warped though.

I appreciate the suggestions from the vinyl collectors, but that's not me anymore. I have no room for vinyl in my NYC apartment, limited edition or otherwise (sigh). Looks like I'm going to have to dig the CD out of storage and rip it. But I figure Stereolab would want its whole catalogue on the streaming services. Maybe it shows up if and when Not Music gets a remastering. I do need the remastered Switched Ons a lot more.

I’m sure Not Music was available digitally from Drag City until quite recently. But looks like they agreed to stop selling any Stereolab stuff around same time as the groop got the rights back to all of the Elektra releases.

Hmm..I saw that NOT MUSIC was being sold at the show I just assumed it was the Drag City issue.Wish I would have gave it a look.
