I love it when you talk like that...ok, here it is, folks: The Alan Parsons Project: The Turn Of A Friendly Card, Blu Ray Edition - Cherry Red Records
so for everyone who originally bitched and complained about the lack of a single-disc Blu-Ray edition, here it is!
Get to ordering it already!
Same here. I inquired to Cherry Red about it but that was at about 3pm on a Friday so I’m not expecting to hear back until Monday at the earliest.Still, no word from Cherry Red regarding mine!, maybe because it’s supposed to be a signed copy
$82 on Amazon US. If that takes away your worry about not being able to get a copy.Same here. I inquired to Cherry Red about it but that was at about 3pm on a Friday so I’m not expecting to hear back until Monday at the earliest.
Gonna be real pissed if they’re actually sold out and never shipped out my copy as I ordered on December 2nd, the day it was announced. Seems to be on back-order everywhere else too.
I can easily get a box set from Amazon.ca (without prime, mind you), but for me it’s mainly the principle that I pre-ordered months ago which theoretically should’ve secured me a copy, not to mention the signed postcard that’s included. Maybe that’s the culprit for the hold up? Who knows.$82 on Amazon US. If that takes away your worry about not being able to get a copy.
Overall it sounds compressed, thin, and with a midrange boost.
The bottom end is lacking, the drums have no punch.
The mastering is loud.
Personally I think Alan may have lost his touch in terms of mixing, perhaps due to age.
The surround mix is otherwise well done and makes me appreciate the record more.
