Talking about Strange Brew: The Very Best of Cream
Go back and read the very first post Steve Hoffman wrote. The USA Polydor is the one Steve is talking about mastered by Dennis Drake.
I've got this Canuck pressing & the LP sounds awesome:
Cream (2) - Strange Brew - The Very Best Of Cream
I remember Steve’s comments. No need for me to go back.
I know that the original CD was mastered by Dennis Drake. I own a copy and it sounds great. My comment way back when was about the UK Polydor LP of the same title, which I own and it sounds every bit as good as the Drake CD. That’s all. Let’s move on.
You got me so confused? How did Fresh Cream come into the conversation? Yeah, we better move on.
Forget Fresh Cream! I was off.
My last few replies to you were about the Strange Brew LP and CD. Sorry. Let’s move on.
I just picked up a dollar copy of this at a record show. Original RSO LP with masterdisk HW stampers. I picked it up on a lark and darn if it doesn’t sound pretty damn good! My originals so far are the go tos but pretty noisy.
So the Drake mastered cd version is supposed to be much better?
I just bought some Time-Life “Swing Era” CDs and was pleased to see (in the Discogs info) that Dennis Drake was the Mastering Engineer. Now I’m really looking forward to listening to them.
