Poor dubbing

"Was initially happy to purchase this disc,mostly because it was the first time that "Night Owl" was avaliable on CD. The recordings on "Night Owl" seemed different than the original (vinyl), not as crisp, and slower. I actually timed the title song and compared it to the original. Not surprisingly, it took about 20 seconds longer to play. The dubbing of this disc is not what it should be. If you really want "Night Owl" on CD and don't want to wait, then purchase. Otherwise I would secure an avaliable copy of "City to City" and wait for future releases of "Owl"."
Night Owl Finally on CD... but wait a minute...

"..those darn loudness wars even ruined what would be a great 2-fer set. I have not even heard the first disc (City to City) since I immediately went for the second disc (Night Owl).. horrendous mastering, and no, this recording is not remastered... one listen to beginning of "The Tourist" and you hear all the clipping and flutter. I saved the disc on my computer and used a noise shaper to soften the harshness of the tracks and a regain tool to somehow lessen the clipping. It worked! DBpowerAMP is a great tool to use. But back to the CD. You may be disappointed in the mastering as I was, but it beats an old beat up cassette that seemed to be eaten by my tape player more than once.
I can't figure out why re-release of City to City since the prior CD release was nicely remastered. This was the second release I bought on the "Collectibles" record label. The first was a reissue of Barnes and Barnes debut, I expected less that high fidelity on that one, but this one I was expecting more or less a pristine recording without having to do the work myself.
Muy Sabrosa (Very Tasty)

"I like most people first heard Gerry Rafferty on the Stateside of the Pond when he was with Steelers Wheel,
I have always liked his basic use of Acoustic Guitar/Bass/Drums/Keyboards & Sax, as well as his double tracked vocals ,Gerry has a great sense of Harmony & Melody ,something that is sorely lacking in the Rock Music scene today .These are Gerry's first 2 Albums and are Dynamite well worth the purchase. Drummer Henri Spinnetti is on these disc's and he has done work with Paul McCartney and others ."
