This post is regarding the 2005 remasters of Barabajagal and Hurdy Gurdy Man only. The titles in this series were remastered by Peter Mew who also mixed some of the bonus tracks. The Good News is that the bonus tracks aren't just throwaways, a couple of them are great and they're all interesting. It also appears that the original master tapes were used for the albums. The booklet has interesting photos and dispells some myths, like Paul McCartney never sang, played tamborine or anything else on "Atlantis" (per Donovan) and neither Jimmy Page nor John Bonham played on "Hurdy Gurdy Man" (per John Paul Jones). Before anyone asks, I have already emailed Mr. Mew about the issues I bring up below. There are four items regarding the Barabajagal remaster which detracted somewhat from my enjoyment of this remaster: 1. The version of Superlungs My Supergirl on the remaster is a completely different mix (still, a quite interesting and enjoyable one) than either the LP or the Epic CD version. This is what the original fadeout sounds like: http://sunshinesuperman.home.comcast.net/barabajagal/superlungsepic.aif This is the fadeout on the remaster: http://sunshinesuperman.home.comcast.net/barabajagal/superlungsremaster.aif 2. The introduction to I Love My Shirt has been truncated on the remaster. Here is the original beginning to the song: http://sunshinesuperman.home.comcast.net/barabajagal/shirtepic.aif Here is the intro on the remaster: http://sunshinesuperman.home.comcast.net/barabajagal/shirtremaster.aif 3. The introduction to The Love Song also has notes cut off on the remaster. Here is the original start of the song: http://sunshinesuperman.home.comcast.net/barabajagal/loveepic.aif Here is the start of the track on the remaster: http://sunshinesuperman.home.comcast.net/barabajagal/loveremaster.aif 4. I found the EQ choices to be fatiguing on the ears on both titles: The treble boost made it harder to turn the music up loud without sounding harsh. Despite all this, Peter gets a Gold Star for not using any NR.
