CD Reviews

Stereo please!
Elwood Conway | Frankfort, KY United States | 03/07/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"YES! Japan comes through for the fans of Basie's stereo years on Verve...except for this one. Recorded in 1965(!), this CD comes to us in mono only! Someone didn't check their tape before doing the transfer, or just didn't give a rat's patootie. Yes, the performance is spot on, but the recording lacks the depth that my stereo LP has. Too bad...had it been the stereo edition, this CD would have rated five stars."
Disappointing

"The Album was recorded in Stereo, the number on the Sleeve and on the CD indicate it is Stereo, but the sound is mono! I feel cheated! The low rating is for technical reasons. I would rate the musical quality with four stars, the two other Billy Byers- Albuns ("Basies Beat" and "Basieland") are much better because they do not contain "Winners" but Standards or special compositions."
