    All I said was I prefer the sound of the 32XD over the USA/Target mastering, I don't know how your post factors into what I said. The 32XD has slightly different numbers according to the DR Loudness web page.

    Are all the effects in the "Phone Call" on the MFSL ? Did you compare to the original LP or CD release ?

    I have the Target version, somehow i don't remastering and/or format upgrade is going to help much, hopefully I'm wrong, really like this album........
  5. Let's just hope this doesn't end up like last time...
    Good question

  6. I'll be interested in knowing if The Phone call has the "flown in sound effects". Are they on the master, or not? In any case, I have this on order.

    I think I mentioned elsewhere that a rep at Music Direct told me the Chicago releases were being held up for legal, not technical, reasons.

    This album. Geez. Good luck.

    No, they are not on the master tape. They would have to be flown in from the EQ'd and limited production dub.

  9. Thanks Steve, that is what I thought. I can't help but think that a number of members will assume that if it doesn't match the LP they are familiar with, it can't be from the "master". That's why I love this place. Live and learn.

    There are many things missing from the final album that weren't on the actual master tapes. The first dub of it with everything we know and love on it was the British EQ/Limited dub, since lost or dumped. The US Dub of that Dub is the only tape that has the right stuff on it missing from the masters. It's 3rd generation but it's the tape I'd use to master this album with. Otherwise you'd have to extract the missing stuff from the dub and digitally dump it on to digital transfers of the masters. Dreadful sounding stuff could possibly be the result, or not..

  11. Looks like I need to find a first UK pressing of the LP. I really do like this album. A "defining moment" for me. Hard to explain.

    I think this album will never sound that great. I'll stick with my Rhino 2 CD with bonus tracks and original vinyl. Done.

    One of my favorite albums of all time. The old Target SIRE CD was mastered from the USA EQ cutting dub/production copy, the only complete version of the album.

    I've enjoyed for quite some time the sacd version of Space Invader off the Sopranos disc mastered by Stephen Marcussen.

    Eh, for anyone looking for a starting point to compare - just saying...

    Nope, the GTR album got a shorter review when it came out. It went something like this, ahem "SHT".
