I did a thread search but couldn't find one dedicated to this particular album in the set of the Analogue Productions reissues. Is it overlooked? Thanks to Steve & Kevin's attention to detail, this is fast becoming one of my all-time favourite albums, and my favourite in the set after NKC Story. I haven't purchased the SACD with the mono mixes but I have a question about the mixing on the 45rpm. I do, however, have an original EMI mono pressing to compare to, which is why I opted for the vinyl copy of the reissue. On 3 of the selections, the mixing sounds very different from the rest of the album. This makes me wonder if these songs were all recorded at a single session which featured a different open mike arrangement for the stereo console. These are the songs: MAGNIFICENT OBSESSION CHERIE, I LOVE YOU CHERCHEZ LA FEMME DON'T BLAME ME The rhythm section is far more apparent, so much so that it seems to "boom forth" in the center image along with Nat's vocals, which makes it sound more like the closed mike mix. I'm wondering if the engineers were using a different setup on the open mikes the day these tracks were cut, or if perhaps they realized there was difficultly capturing the rhythm section, and did a split feed on the closed mikes from the percussion? I'd love to discuss this.
