its his work to do whatever he likes with of course but i think with that dismissive attitude he just lost me as a consumer (all over again i've already got all this stuff anyway!) of his old music.The write up specifically says that Cat is not interested in a surround mix, therefore I am not interested in Cat's product.
I can't vouch for it personally, but it was released in 1995 by MoFi. I think the AM+ series early U.S. CD, as with most of his albums, sounds just fine. There are several variations, some pressed in Japan. I don't know if the mastering varies.Were there ever any great sounding CD releases?
This is true for me as well, but I blame A) Being into computers and B) Being retired.Anyway, I digress. The fact is that many of these deluxe super editions are great, and most of them I end up getting, especially if there is a surround track included. But the real truth to the tale is this. I end up playing the thing, marvel at the quality (at least the part I can still hear), briefly glance at the "extra stuff", extract the 5.1 for the car, then put the thing away. AND NEVER TAKE IT BACK OUT AGAIN!
So…have you heard the Blu-Ray yet?OK, I had to go for the CD/Blu Ray edition as this is one of my top five, wait...top three albums. In fact, a few days before the Covid event closed down the UK I had an absolute treat at a charity concert in London where Cat and Rick Wakeman played Morning Has Broken together for the first time since the day it was recorded (except the rehearsal apparently)....and to reiterate....I was there! Can't tell you how utterly enthralling it was to experience this moment in music history...and available on YouTube if you are interested:
So, as a result there is no way I could not acquire this super deluxe version but I am mystified as to why an analogue recording has arrived on a blu ray at 24/48 when 24/192 is easily accommodated and would be the right level of quality for this album? Seems the message on high res is really hard to get through to those with their hand on the tiller....!
