New BGO release...
Posted by Mike Slater on November 6, 2016, 1:10 am
I just received and listened to the new 4-LP BGO release. I thought the sound quality was really good, even if it wasn't' truly remastered from the original tapes. They still sound better than the LP's because you don't get the ticks and pops from the vinyl. However, I had a few problems with this release. The biggest was the song" In A Mansion Stands My Love" on the "A Touch Of Sadness" LP. In one line of the song, a few words were edited out so that the line ends suddenly, throwing off the timing of the song completely. This does not sound like the disc has a skip in it. I played it a few times, and it sounds to me like the words were edited out. Has anyone else heard this on their copy? Also, when I got to the song "Bimbo" on the "On Stage" LP, it skipped like crazy, so I was forced to call amazon to exchange it for another copy. Larry, I read your review where you complained about the remastering, but you didn't mention any skips, so I'm hoping a new copy will play fine. I'm still curious about why a few words were missing from that one song...
