Wow, well...I guess I won't bother looking for this one...even though I've wanted it.
Regarding Words (which I dearly love too), on the 96/24 stream (and I believe the 5.1 mix - not at home to check at the moment), Words is about a minute longer than the original Harvest release. For those who care there is an even longer version in the video extras of the Archives set. It is broken up by some talking, which can easily be edited out with Audacity or any other wave editor.
Could have done with more Barn,
Maybe he did not have enough out buildings to mix this properly !!!
Should have called on Steven W or Elliott S
That's how I always viewed the 5.1 of Harvest, as a barn mix.
People complained about the placement of the instruments with the drums hard left etc.
Well, look at the back cover of the album.
Also if you watch the video on the disc, Mazer is placing mikes outside the big barn door.
I don't know, yeah Harvest goes against the conventional 5.1 dogma like not having an isolated LFE track but I don't care.
The recording itself so organic and real still one of my all time favorites in surround or otherwise.
In the intro to Are You Ready For The Country, you can hear the snares vibrating from Drummond's bass notes.
Really phat bass sound if you don't have a sub or 2 it would seem over driven maybe but that a deficiency in the system, not the recording.
