Great Music, Poor sound

"The music on this CD is great, the jamming is there, the energy and fun that Savoy Brown had is evident, and its the only live recording I know of of Hellbound Train. Is it worth having, yes, for dedicated SB fans but the sound quality is sure to dissappoint. The bass is muddied and too out front, the drums just have no snap, and worse of all, Kim Simmons guitar sounds like somebody forgot to turn up his amp. You really have to perk your ears to hear him at all on many cuts. Overall, it sounds like somebody recorded this concert from outside the building on a portable cassette player, in a barrel. I did enjoy a listen to this based on the music and historical content but I just won't be able to repeat this cd to many times because of the sound quality."
Digitally Remastered? From A Cassette Tape Maybe.....

"This album should have stayed in the vaults, but obviously someone was out to make a buck. First the sound is in mono & way below average even by bootleg standards (fair to good mono soundboard for all you Hotwacks fans out there). Second the vocals of Jackie Lynton (now there's a household name) are turned way up in the mix (several notches above the music) and are almost unlistenable. To say they s#ck would be a compliment. Lastly, there is only one reason to listen to any post-Dave Peverett line-up of Savoy Brown and that's Kim Simmmond's guitar playing.
Unfortunately Simmond's guitar is so low and distant in the mix you need a CSI, FBI or CIA trained audio tech to locate it.
All joking aside, even the most diehard Savoy Brown fan will have a tough time listening to this album from start to finish. And repeated listenings...I have no clue how many masochistic Savoy Brown fans are out there."
