Thanks! What a treat. Interesting and spacious, although... it sounds like it could still be an upmix. Is that what "bootleg" means in this context?Here's 20 seconds of My Sweet Lord, 5.1 bootleg mix. Not really that bad.
Thanks Jon... as a booteg, it should be free..but then..legal matters kick in!!! If the mixer went at such lengths to do it so well he should have gotten in touch with George's estate.. or maybe he did!!!!
The Six Million Dollar Man, Kap ..... Methinks you've been watching too much Westworld!as with the Six Million Dollar Man...the technology exists(to clean Phil's mess up)...we can do it!!!
Ah, yes. Thanks for corroborating something I vaguely remembered.Unfortunately that seems to be the case, according to this blurb from the book in the Imagine Super Deluxe Set: [snip image]
Great word Tepid, I would take that as if you are a super huge mega fan of this album it may be worth it, for the rest of us if you can snag it a price well south of $50 it may be worth it, otherwise ..... Hey hey, Just noticed the covid-19 mask on your avatar Jon - Good oneTepid
Magic Alex was crazy, but during his early tenure at Apple (records), he mentioned the concept of recording music with lasers... Pretty impressive.
This is one of my favorite albums of all time... I think if it wasn't for Phil Spector's production this album may just loose half of it's power and uniqueness. The wall of sound gave tracks like "my sweet lord" that last 10% to make it perfect, in my opinion of course. It was a genius move to use the wall of sound as much as he did on this album, especially with all of the reverb. Just because it doesn't sound as "clean" or "hifi" as other production styles doesn't make it bad.George Harrison said he regretted the amount of reverb all over the album, and I completely agree. Phil Spector is a disaster as a producer. I love the album in theory, but find it difficult to listen to anymore.
I fear that much of this reverb is burned into the multitracks, considering Spector's approach.
Except... who am I kidding? I would still buy a surround release! 24 tracks means a lot of stuff could come out of the din, if it were mixed fairly discretely.
Magic Alex one of the first employees of Apple, also promised things like an Artificial Sun, X-ray force fields to protect The Beatles in their homes, 72 track recorders, etc. He was a Con Man who took advantage of both the Rolling Stones and The Beatles. He even tried to broker the sale to The Beatles a non existent Greek Island. He passed away in 2017.Magic Alex was crazy, but during his early tenure at Apple (records), he mentioned the concept of recording music with lasers... Pretty impressive.
