yeah I know this is a QUAD forum...but Stereo headphones give you a "sorta 3D" mix ...my Marantz has a "Virtual" option but the Stereo one is the most solid....
Of course my speakers are my trusty Sony MDR-7506....
AND . since I just serviced my TT at home, here I am Phil and Mike (Tony, you can keep getting drunk with that Man in the Corner...)

Does NOT sound bad...a bit noisy but , alas, maybe I can do some horse trading with the seller who was "unaware" that he was sending me a CRC pressing....

WOW...have NOT heard this LP in AAAAGES (..only been a year , Roger...)

Ahhhhh, the Gen. Petraeus goddess šŸ„“
Please Pupster...ANYTHING BUT the current governing mafia!!!!...The Donegal Goddess is WAY above any of these hellsouls (be them from whatever political inclination...like my Grandma used to say..."I donĀ“t even believe in ELECTRICAL CURRENT!!!")

PEACE!!!!

This is one MONSTER compilation...how this went over my head when it came out I have no idea...just having "Sound Chaser" in 76 with Moraz is worth the price of admission...The Bruford tunes are amazing... listening to "America" now...

My usa pressing sounded very muddy (early digital recording...SPARS code is DAD) and the German CD sounds way better...decided to get a Japanese pressing which was sealed...

when I received it I saw that it had some factory scratches- weird for a japanese pressing- but still, I was majorly pissed off!!!
Finally decided to spin it and thankfully enough it did not affect playing...MOSTLY!!! I MUST SAY that this pressing is heavenly, it will only need a few minor click repair and it is pressed on virgin vinyl!!!

ABWH live in Japan...found this somewhere...it was such a letdown when Levin was not present on the "official" live video cause I saw them in Hartford (or Providence) and the Bruford - Levin section was a sight to behold (especially TLEv playing a light gray carbon molded Stick..which I can hear him playing on CTTE!!!) glad I found this...

Is that maybe because it was one of the ones Jeff Berlin covered for Tony?
I know that An Evening of Yes Music Plus by ABWH has Berlin on it.

(BUMP ....Really??.. am I the only one who sometimes listens to headphones in this forum????)
Listening to a 2018 Rhino Half Speed Rerererererereremastering of Genesis' Wind and Wuthering which has all kinds of Hi Frequency EQ/compression but it brings out a lot of the album's details...I don't think it's as bad a Nick Davis' butchered/unlistenable/ear fatiguing remixes, though...
What a great fucking record this is...

I know it's really difficult to separate the artist from their work like in this case....and OMG Derek St. Holmes' voice was something else!

a rare rare find, to quote Nick himself... a rip from a UK FIRST pressing which wipes the floor compared to any rereremasters (I think the master is lost). This should be the official release.
