    Re: Discs recommended by Steve

    My .02 is post on this thread only if you have a link to Steve's words. Otherwise this is going to be a train wreck.

    But nice idea for a thread.

    Re: Discs recommended by Steve

    I love those original Stones CBS CDs. There is a lot of love for the Ludwig (UV22 by Apogee) remasters while it seems most members dislike most other remasters by almost every other bands. I guess my mileage must vary. :)

    I did picked up an original U.S. "It's Only Rock and Roll", but it not in the same league as the original Japan CD which Dave owns. Now I really want to A/B my U.S. "B&B" with the Japan disc. Thanks for the reminder.

    Re: Discs recommended by Steve

    Steve has good things to say about MFSL's "Abraxas", "A Night at the Opera" and "Bookends" in this thread:

    http://www.stevehoffman.tv/forums/showpost.php?p=1659294&postcount=141

    UDCD 552 Santana Abraxas is one of the best sounding MoFi's of all; they spent months rejecting so-called master tapes sent to them from Sony until they got THE master mixes. The same with UDCD 568 Queen A Night at the Opera. Just because we think the recording is a little "off", well that is exactly the way the masters sound. I know; I've heard them. Same for UDCD 585 Derek & The Dominos Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs. This was done in the "good" MoFi era. The fact that they swooped down and grabbed this title away from DCC means nothing. It is a good representation of the actual (wacky) mixes. I'm GLAD that they didn't tamper with them or try to add fake top end. That only happened in the last few years of the old MoFi, yet right at the end a great sounding Simon & Garfunkel "Bookends" was released so go figure....

    Re: Discs recommended by Steve

    Here's more of a request... I recall Steve mentioning how good a particular Bernard Hermann CD was, but I don't remember (nor can I find) the thread where he mentioned it. I have a feeling it may have been in the classifieds, and I'm guessing they're not archived...

    If anyone remembers which it was, please post it. Thanks!

    Re: Discs recommended by Steve

    Are you talking about the 2-track or the Mastersound, Steve?

    Really appreciate your corrections to this thread.

    Thanks :)

    Re: Discs recommended by Steve

    Sorry, I wasn't clear - which CD have you not heard - the two-track 35DP Made In Japan first issue CD or the Mastersound Gold CD?

    Re: Discs recommended by Steve

    I think there is a misunderstanding....the "2 track" is a WYWH CD having two tracks instead of the usual five.
