Bob Romano said:For The Love Of Money blows me away everytime I hear it on this disc. I never heard the original quad version but I guess, according to the liner notes, I am kind of hearing it here (except now with a slight center and really nice bass). Ship Ahoy is another favorite track. Over all I give this one an 8
I think MFSL needs to jump on releasing some of Billy Paul's work, and if they can make the step, do a hybrid and use the quad mixes that are available for those albums, especially War Of The Gods.eggplant said:Terrific disc. The original quad mix shines.
It seems that all the Philly Int'l mixes I've heard are conspicuously excellent -- from Billy Paul to MFSB to this. Very discrete, dramatic, lively, faithful. Perhaps they all had the same engineer?
i've owned this for quite some time, but i just noticed i never voted or commented on it. as dylan says, for R&B fans it's a must-have. and if you're not, there's good chance it might make you one. this is among the top five favorites of my collection. even after many repeated listenings, the ambient surround sounds of the slave ship on the title track still send chills up my spine.This disk is an absolute necessity for anyone that's a fan of any kind of R&B on these forums.
A few of us are dealing with Caiman right now on some DVD-As and our 60 days haven't come yet. Similar situation though, claiming they have items in stock that never come. Looks like I'll learn from your experience, wait a little longer to see if a miracle happens, and then cancel before the 60 days are up!Smooth Caiman, really smooth. Just tell customers to wait until the time is over and you can pocket the money without any consequences.
Dunno if you are still looking for it, but if it could be of any help.....If anybody has a copy for sale, let me know. I have a Paypal account.
