There's also the possibility of there being no multitracks available for the live version of No Woman.. "No Woman, No Multi.."I've had several versions of Legend over the years, including last year's epic failure on blu ray. This is best sounding version I have ever heard. Those people that didn't own that previous blu ray couldn't imagine what an improvement Bob Clearmountain made on this disc. The surround is just outstanding and it's a warm almost vinyl sound. The only very very small issue I have with it is I would have liked the other version of No Woman No Cry instead of the album version presented here. It's at a slower tempo and it evokes a more emotional vibe. I suspect that it might have been damaged and wasn't up to par; only speculation on my part. This is a 10 all the way. I hope Bob Clearmountain gets some other surround projects in the future, his job on Avalon was no fluke, he can still get it done!
Not having the Multi tracks I dont have a problem with certainly on this Greatest hits type packages substitutions make sence. It does make you wonder why they substituted 'No Woman ..' but not 'Could you be loved'.There's also the possibility of there being no multitracks available for the live version of No Woman.. "No Woman, No Multi.."
I agree one gazillion percent!I would be quite happy if bands put together 5.1 'best of whats available on Multi-track compilations'
I would take Exodus the album in 5.1 I think that would be spectaculari agree with some of rtbluray...don't care for Bob's version of I Shot The Sheriff at all (no points docked for my personal preference on content)...but the only opposing view is with EXODUS...for me that track stands above all. musically as well as sonics...albeit by a very slim margin. most of this disc is outstanding...not all..but darn close. my main issue is this disc clearly proves my need for a center speaker upgrade. i also have to +1 on Clint Eastwood's review...echo most others comments as well...great mix...great sound...great compilation.
