I had this album back when it was released. An excellent album at the time. But after purchasing this download and listening to it on a Oppo BD-105D with Sony V600 over the ear headphones, I am of the opinion that it was either recorded badly, the "master tape" used is damaged just plane worn out or the transition to HI REZ is not appropriate for this work. No bottom end, all I hear is distortion across the bass, the mids and especially the highs. In contrast the Elvis Hi REZ downloads are just beautifully balanced and those master tapes are 10-15 years younger than All Things Must Pass as presented here. I love this album but not the way it is here in Hi- REZ.
