CD Reviews

Mono rules!
Adrian Heathcote | Sydney,, N.S.W Australia | 08/09/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Just to add to what others have said: if there are problems with this CD it is because of the digital transfer---it is not because of the original mono analogue tapes. I have the vinyl of this album and it is brilliant. The bass intro on Eight Miles High is full and deep, almost as deep as the original single---which I also have. Moreover that song does not have the treble on McGuinn's guitar dialled up to the max so that it completely dominates, as so many other recent issues of this song do. (I find this an annoying rewriting of history, making McGuinn disproportionately important in that song---as though Gene Clark and David Crosby were just there for the ride!)

And on the subject of Crosby: Everybody's Been Burned has to be one of his finest moments. Just a beautiful song!

What we really need is for CBS to do another transfer of this album and keep the whole thing as it was originally conceived---in glorious mono---but this time with the bass intact."
Incredibly Bad Sound!!!!!

"First off, this cd may have been released in several versions, or also in a remastered edition. My version is Columbia CK 37335. The sound is simply dreadful. The music has been subjected to massive treble cuts in order to hide faulty source material on nearly all the tracks. The highs waver in and out on many of these tracks! The sound is unimaginably lifeless!! Too bad they didn't use better tape sources, or even the original vinyl on this one."
