    This is more about the stereo mix versus the mono mix. Mono mix destroys the sometimes odd stereo mix.

    It's great, but unfortunately it was only (officially...) released in low-bitrate lossy Dolby audio.

    I used to have early Japanese Deram CD. While it sounded alright, the missing cord (I can’t remember which song though, but probably Nine Feet Underground) was driving me nuts. While Byrne’s remaster isn’t bad, he moved midrange forward which results in sibilance not present on UK Deram LP. However, this very well could be my Oppo DAC for all I know. I never compared other albums though. I do like Canterbury Tales: The Best of Caravan compilation on CD and this is my go to version if I want to hear Caravan on CD.

    Your English is very good. I live in the Charente Maritime, about an hour inland frome La Rochelle. You are the first French person i have "met" that enjoys Hi Fi and music. There are not many Hi Fi stores near me!! Thanks for all your input x

    Have to admit I didn't give the cd mono much attention because I thought it was a dedicated mix.

    It is a dedicated mix.

    And it is far superior to the stereo mix, IMO.

    I have enjoyed the sound of the remasters, particularly Waterloo Lily.

    If you haven't heard it yet, check out the live version of For Richard from Fairfield Halls. It first appeared on the vinly version of Canterbury Tales (the CD release had the studio version). Later popped up on CD as a bonus track on the remastered "Cunning Stunts" album and then again when Live At Fairfield Halls was officially released on CD (I think there was also a french release of this concert on vinyl)

    The addition of Geoff Richardson on viola works really well on this track - especially the intro.

    I have the chance to know a few Hifi enthusiasts and many many music fans (but then again I work in audio). :) There are more than a couple Hifi stores around here! I guess Toulouse is kind of an exception though. We have the highest concentration of music stores per inhabitant, after Paris. As for my English, I studied English litterature and have done some translation work.
    There are also a few other French members on this forum. :)
