...That I wasn't leading anyone down the garden path. I wasn't. It's great. When I say great, I mean it's a neutral transfer of the tape. CK9604 DIDP 70097. If you have a copy, go pull it out now. First thing to do is play cut 8, I AM A LONESOME HOBO. Crank it up really loud as the beginning is very quiet. When the bass comes in do you hear that nice bottoming out of the bass amp? Should sound very full and balanced. When his voice comes in, it's a nice Neumann sound, very dynamic. OK, now, turn the volume down a bit and play cut 1, JOHN WESLEY HARDING. The first thing you notice (besides the out of tune gee-tar) is that Bob's voice sounds a bit harsher than track 8. Different session EQ. Play about 20 seconds of track 1 and skip to track 2, AS I WENT OUT ONE MORNING. Hear how Bob's voice sounds much better? More hi-fi and pure? Different mic EQ setting. Should sound really nice on any system. SO, if you can hear the difference clearly in Bob's vocal mic from track 1 to track 2 you know two things: 1. You have a good stereo system. 2. This CD was not futzed with in any way. Try and find a used copy of this old CD; there should be a ton of them out there now that the SACD is out. It's one of my favorite Dylan albums. And don't go mistaking paradise for that home across the road.
