I'm thinking the next batch will be in April 2021 so you can stuff your Easter Basket with D~V two~fers instead of chocolate bunnies, gourmet jelly beans and those puffy little marshmallow chicks!Way to go Michael! With only 49 weeks left in 2021 I was worried.
I'm likely to get all except a few of the classical ones I have all the Mott albums on expanded CD with bonus tracks so the stereo portions will be a double dip for me.
So Michael what are your February releases?
If you want to pad, there's some great classical and easy listening CDs on sale for a pound each, like Ingrid Jacoby's Russian piano music album. There's also a free Dutton Epoch Sampler CD.Ordered the four Pop/Rock/Jazz albums plus Donald Byrd/Street Lady. I have to admit, however, that I am a wee bit nervous having gone against GOS's Law
And that FREE D~Epoch Sampler is SUPERB and fully displays the excellence of their RBCD mastering.If you want to pad, there's some great classical and easy listening CDs on sale for a pound each, like Ingrid Jacoby's Russian piano music album. There's also a free Dutton Epoch Sampler CD.
I just remembered, there's actually a fun bit of info about the quad mix of The Hoople in Dave Thompson's The Ultimate Guide To Vinyl.Mott The Hoople is one I've been requesting for a while now, thrilled to see it finally materialize. I think it's a really underrated title--the quad mix is radically different than the original stereo version with tons of added echo/delay on the drum kit and vocals, which is interesting as I've usually found CBS' quads to be generally much drier-sounding than their stereo counterparts.
But methinks the D~V QUAD SACD remasters from the original 15 ips Master Tapes might paint a different picture than the matrix decoding from the 70's and/or those lo fi Q8 tapes.
