Not worthy of Jee

2 Stars
Posted by Dr Tim O'Shea

On a recent flight to Asia listened to the entire album twice through an excellent system. Long time fan. Master works: Flying in a Blue Dream-- a classic for the ages. We know what Joe is capable of , not just chops- wise, but compositionally, melodically, dynamically, and musically. This outing is a triumph of recording excellence, but an abysmal failure musically. Instantly forgettable because after laying down these very solid, powerful rhythm tracks, there's no composition, no structure, no melody, no memorable Satriani fire. It's elevator music with a great drummer. Hoping it doesn't mean the wellspring is dry-- just shows the pressures of the studio to deliver on a schedule that the artist couldn't meet emotionally, spiritually, or ... Satriani has set the bar so high, given his evolution over the past 2 decades--we want the equal - at least - of Flying in a Blue Dream, or Why, or Rubina's Blue Sky or... Delete all guitar tracks and try again Joe please!

The Definitive Pressing

5 Stars
Posted by audiofan

Another flawless pressing from QRP - no surprise there. The sound is exceptional for a recording nearly 46 years old as well - this superb-sounding double LP presents the entire experience at last - and is as close as most of us will ever get to being there. Timeless and essential music on glorious vinyl - bravo, QRP!

Just OK

This sounds somewhat washed out. Maybe the tapes have faded over the years or the recording equipment quality wasn't there back then. I'm comparing this recording to my ripped CD.

Sounds amazing, but my download was missing the first 6 tracks (which were actually the ones I was most looking forward to).

I've read that a few people had some issues with this. My copy was flat, on-center and pretty much pop free. There was one song where the cymbals were a little spitty, but over all I'd say this sounds pretty darn good. In headphones it was excellent.

"Still Crazy..." Is Crazy Good

5 Stars
Posted by audiofan

This Columbia/Legacy re-issue is 5-star reference quality, both in the remaster (as good as, perhaps even better than the original) as well as the quality of the vinyl/pressing. There literally was no hint of surface noise or defects (ticks, pops, etc), and the LP sounds spectacular. Highly recommended...and this applies to the other two previous LPs as well, which, after hearing "Still Crazy" I purchased as well. Kudo's to Columbia for going all out for these iconic titles and using the original analog tapes!

I'm a huge fan, and this album is more a window into the the world of this awesome artist. If you like "Grace" you will love this album.

Somnifacient

3 Stars
Posted by Anthony

I was highly anticipating the release of this LP. I am both a big Billie Holiday and Cassandra Wilson fan so this tribute album just had to be great. The cover photo of Cassandra is stunning, the double discs are flat and quiet. The arrangements of Billie's songs are incredibly slow, like walking through mud. Cassandra's voice is often lost in the over-produced "effects'. There are a few winning selections (I'll Be Seeing You) but for the most part it reminds me of catching a Red Eye flight where all the passengers, the stewardesses, and most probably the pilot are fast asleep while the airplane is hidden in the night clouds. This should have been much better!

A MUST HAVE!!!

5 Stars
Posted by Stan

Any Alice in Chains fan must have this record! What a Supergroup! It's so sad that half the band is gone now. But, the magic they produced is amazing. Such a waste of talent because of the toll drugs took on this kind of creativity. Or, did the drugs cause this creativity? A question to ponder! This record is not grunge. It's bluesy rock! It certainly ranks up there with Stones and Zeppelin to me! The record is super quiet and well recorded with exquisite balance of bass, mid and treble. Plays well on any system I'm sure. I'd give it 10 stars if I could!!!

Where's Kevin's hand in this?

4 Stars
Posted by Bigrasshopper

The sound here is good, warm if a little ragged in places, arrangements minimal, but I have to question if it was cut directly from tape or "original tape" no mention of "master" on the sleeve sticker. The runout have SST, a mastering lab in Germany and a name that is not Kevin Grey, so the information here seems to conflict with the records inscriptions. Unless Kevin sent them a digital file ? In any case Ide rather have a verified AAA. Since there was some repetive ticks on side 2, I'm trading in for the more expensive AP 45, if this sounds good, that should be great. Dean's baratone will " relax you like sloe gin after a fast night " -linear notes

Finally, A Version Worth A Listen

4 Stars
Posted by Steve K

Finally a fine sounding version of this first rate album. This has been a favorite for decades and I have been surprised and disappointed that this album has been overlooked by audiophile labels, etc. I'm happy now. If you like this album, I don't think you will be disappointed. 5 stars for performance and 4.5 for sonics. I'll be buying the other Paul Simon solo ventures soon.

A preserved classic!

Posted by Rudy / Record Collector Guide

I grew up with this album in the house, in all its scratched up mono glory, so it was nice to see Sony finally reissue this title properly. All I've had is the late 80s reissue on CD (its first) which is rather bright and lifeless. Cut by Kevin Gray and pressed on pink vinyl, this album comes across well with a full-bodied response, and the typical stereo spread of the mid 60s. On this, I am hearing more detail than I've heard on any digital version thus far. The vinyl surface is relatively free of minor ticks and clicks but, like all colored or clear vinyl I own, there is a higher background noise floor, like a faint constant "swishing" noise. Not distracting though. I am tempted to get a spare copy on black vinyl just to have it. I don't know how the more recent remastering by Analogue Productions might improve on this one; I'll wait to see and do a comparison. On these Dynagroove titles, it boils down to which source tapes are used.

Rainbow Bridge The Finest Hour On LP

5 Stars
Posted by Triodeotl

This LP has much better bass and more inner detail than the original Reprise. Its like they took a blanket off the recording. Buy it for "PolyGap" if you want to hear the future of Hendrix songwriting. Definitely get it for possibly the finest live version of “Hear my Train a Com’in”.

Get it while you can I got my LP today 7 days before release. It was delayed initially but it is here now. Noise floor is way off the map compared to the original Reprise pressing. Even if you have that you got to have this. Numbered copies will sell out. Get an early pressing while you still can. I recommend this highly ++++

Value

4 Stars
Posted by Jeff C - Australia

My original copy is dished so to play one side I need to tape it down in multiple places around the edge of the platter. So I figured at $20 (on special) this version would be worth the gamble. Vinyl is flat and quiet. The sound is almost as good as my original so it seems this has not been messed up by remastering or digital fiddling. Highs and mids have not been brightened and the bass is still very satisfying. Sound 9 out of 10


Jimi Hendrix - The Cry Of Love Product No: ALEG 91781

4.5

5 Stars

This disc, every track of which was previously made available on 'First Rays Of The New Rising Sun', is probably of interest only to those who either passed on that release, or, like me, grew up with this version, and want it on high-quality vinyl (not that the 'FROTNRS' pressing was inferior) with the original sequencing. This remaster does not appear to be different from 'FROTNRS', at least on my system. The overall sound is very good; however, the bass, which is quite deep & full on the beautiful track 'Drifting', seems to almost 'drop out' on others, at times making you feel as if you need engage the tone controls to boose the bass a bit. A direct A/B comparison with 'FROTNRS' reveals the same issue, so this is probably true to the master tape. All told, however, this does not detract too much from one's enjoyment of the disc. The artwork is beautifully reproduced, tho the cardboard itself seems a bit thinner than most. Another perfectly flat, quiet pressing from QRP.

An Exquisite, Lush Pressing

5 Stars
Posted by Mark Fig

One of the best-sounding records I own. The all-analog production is absolute magic. Radiant and transporting. Vocals are raw and present. The strings lush and expansive. Acoustic guitar sounds warm and clear and in 3 dimensions. The horn section swaggers. Wonderful.
