Of varying quality
Thursday, December 8, 2016
John Fogerty's voice is recorded with varying degrees of resolution. In some songs, his voice sounds raspy, and it's not because he does have a little rasp in his voice, but it's because of the recording. I'm sure that the songs are sourced from many places, some of them pretty good, but others have an edge that I don't enjoy hearing. It seems like the voice recordings may have been over saturated on some of the sources.
The instrumental sound is usually of a fine quality. It fills the space between the speakers, in most cases, but I wouldn't say that it extends beyond. On some of the songs, the soundstage seems unusually narrow - not quite mono, but lacking in width and depth.
Overall, the album does have great songs, but I can honestly say that I don't listen to it very often because of its limited sound.
